Prince and the pea 11.10.10
I am a light sleeper so the bed I sleep on is truely important. Mattresses are quite expensive, despite the ads for $399 for a Queen set you see on TV all the time, a good mid-level mattress and box spring can cost a few thousand dollars! The selection process can be dizzying, why so many??
Several years ago, I decided it was time for a new bed in East Hampton. I went with a Sleep Number bed from Select Comfort. The set up of the bed is an interesting process as it is assembled on site. The ability to adjust the firmness for each side individually was the driver for the purchase as was the 30 day in-home trial offered by the company. http://www.selectcomfort.com/
Ultimately I returned the bed and purchased a Stearns & Foster set. After a week, I wished I had kept the Sleep Number!!! Unfortunately, the store I purchased it from only had an exchange policy. I exchanged the set for a softer version and kept that for years.
A few years back, when I moved back to the City I decided to get a new bed. The bedroom in my rental was on the small size so I went with a Queen and went back to a Select Comfort. When I completed the renovation in Sutton, the King Stearns & Foster came out of storage for the Master and my beloved Select Comfort Queen size it wound up in the guest room in East Hampton!
I really do find them incredibly comfortable and wonder why I don’t sleep on one each night???
So yes, my friends laugh at my mattress saga… The Prince and the pea
