Have Money to Burn? Pay $50,000 for a Mattress
The Vividus, created by Swedish manufacturer Hästens, sells for just shy of $50,000. Vividus, the super-luxury mattress, uses all-natural horsehair, cotton, linen and wool in the various steps in the bed's manufacture.
Vividus is built by hand by the most experienced and skillful craftsmen using techniques that have been employed in the Swedish furniture industry since the 1850s. Each bed is made to order according to the customers´ specifications and takes 160 hours to make.
I think they would have had a better chance of justifying the price tag if they threw some diamonds on it or maybe made it out of gold. For $50,000, all I know is that it better be one comfortable bed.
