High end mattress advice
Stopped at the Duxiana store yesterday. Beds look great and feel great in the store. But geez, $6000 for a bed? Might be worth it if it really is the last one you'll ever buy.
European Sleepworks advertises around here too. Cheaper than Dux, but still high.
According the the brochures, these guys say that the big stores sell lots of names, but there's really only a couple places where beds are made. They push firm mattresses, because it takes longer for those springs to wear out. They use cheap foam, which loses its shape in a couple years. They recommend flipping the mattress, because then you move the sagging parts to the bottom.
Better steel in the springs, more of them, and latex foam ensure the top brands last for decades. And they are eco-friendly and chemical free (which, if true, is appealing).
Given that you can't rent a bed for a week to really evaluate it, who do you believe? Do these more expensive brands deliver? Are there other brands I should look into?
