Decked Out Bed For Gamers Only Comes in Single Sizes

No amount of caffeine, sugar, or Doritos can get around it: Even the most die-hard gamer is going to have to eventually abandon their sweet gaming setup and climb into bed for some rest. But that doesn’t necessarily mean gaming has to be put on hold, thanks to Bauhutte’s new Gaming Beds.Read more...

Mattress shopping with a bad back

The world is now filled with an insane variety of things you can sleep on. I ended up with a Purple 3 mattress, but holy cow -- what a ride! A while ago I moved all my stuff into storage except my 10+-year-old mattress. One marriage, one Great Pyrenees and who knows how many people who briefly tried to 'relate' to me later, that mattress had run its useful service life. As I re-emerge from #vanlife it has become time to purchase a new mattress. I bought my first mattress in 1994. It wa...

My Normal Bed Seems Barbaric After Sleeping on This Temperature-Controlled Smart Mattress

Temperature is one of the most critical things when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep. Too hot and you’re sweating under the covers constantly searching for the cool side of the pillow (and failing). Too cold and you spend hours shivering and waiting for the icy specter of sleep to consume your body.Read more...

Athletes at the Tokyo Olympics will sleep on cardboard beds

The 10,000+ athletes at the Tokyo Olympics will sleep on bed frames made of strong cardboard. According to the Athletes Village manager Takashi Kitajima, the frames can hold up to 200 kilograms (440 pounds). "They are stronger than wooden beds," Kitajima said... "Of course, wood and cardboard would each break if you jumped on them." From the Associated Press: The single bed frames will be recycled into paper products after the games. The mattress components—the mattresses are not made of c...

These beds for Tokyo 2020 Olympic athletes are made from robust, eco-friendly, engineered cardboard

You wouldn’t normally equate cardboard boxes and beds with the world’s most famous sporting event, but trust Tokyo to do things a little differently. The Tokyo 2020 Olympics has, ever since the beginning, advocated keeping a low carbon footprint for the global event by reusing as many resources as possible. They’ve forged their Olympic medals from rare-earth materials sourced from e-waste, and even made torches out of metal used in temporary housing units that were created as shelter for the vic...

Woman "accidentally" spent the night in a mattress store

In Richmond Heights, Missouri, a woman says she visited a mattress store to test out the beds, finding one so comfortable that she fell asleep. As she snoozed apparently unnoticed, the employees closed the shop for the night. Police were called in the morning. From the St Louis Post-Dispatch: "That's honestly the best mattress endorsement we've ever heard," the police department posted on social media Friday. The store did not want to press charges for trespassing so officers escorted the w...

The Scandinavian Sleep Secret: Mine and Yours Duvets

Anki Spets has been out to improve American slumber since 1990. Back then, she was a Swedish fashion designer new to NYC and dismayed by the wrinkle-proof, mixed blend sheets that dominated the US market. Years before Ikea and Scandi style arrived on the home front, way before bedding disruptors entered the picture, her business, Area Home, was all about natural fibers in Swedish-inspired patterns and palettes from fair trade sources. In addition to natural materials, Anki is all about comfort a...

Shared Beds Need Separate Blankets

A big, beautiful comforter, spread neatly across the bed you share with a partner may look nice during the daytime. But at night, chaos results. One person will be too hot, one too cold. Worse, one of them will probably toss and turn during the night, pulling cold air under the covers. The simple solution: separate…

Sooo...How Do I Clean a Mattress, Anyway?

Years ago, I had the flu really badly and apparently sweat through my mattress pad. This wasn’t supposed to be possible, and the company sent me a replacement years later. The issue is that my $2000 mattress also developed spring issues and the company won’t honor the warranty because there are stains present. I…Read more...

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Keeping Your Bedding Fresh

There’s nothing like a freshly made bed, with clean sheets and luxurious pillows—particularly during hibernating season. But is your bed (where you sleep, relax, read, watch Netflix and, quite possibly, eat and work) really clean? It’s a question we almost couldn’t bear to ask. “It pays to go deeper,” says bedding maven Tricia Rose of Rough Linen, when we did ask her how to maintain a truly clean bed. Some of her tips called us to attention; others let us off the hook (good news: you don’t need ...

Scientific study shows that adults sleep better when rocked as they snooze

Here's another fine development in sleep science today! A new study shows that young adults, like babies, sleep better when rocked. University of Geneva neuroscientist Laurence Bayer and colleagues built a gently rocking bed and used EEG to monitor adults' brain activity as they slept. From Science News: Study participants fell asleep faster while being rocked, the researchers found. In a stationary bed, people took an average of 16.7 minutes to reach a light stage of non-REM sleep called...

Noise-cancelling pillow for bedmates of people who snore

Northern Illinois University researchers have designed a noise-cancelling pillow for people who sleep near loud snorers. It works using the same principle as noise-cancelling headphones but with an adaptive algorithm that changes with the snore. Noise-cancelling headboards have been available for some time, but according to electrical engineering professor Lichuan Liu who led this new research, they're bulky and limited in their efficacy because the "quiet zone" isn't right near the sleeper's e...

September is nearly over, which means there’s no denying the end-of-summer, back-to-school feeling that comes when the mornings grow chillier, the days shorter, and the leaves browner.

Steal This Look: An Authentic Midcentury Modern Bedroom

When Carla and Niall Maher bought a 1950 suburban ranch house in Westchester, New York, the couple made a commitment to midcentury style. Built into a hillside among other midcentury houses by Roy S. Johnson and Stanley Torkleson, the house was sheetrocked and whitewashed by previous owners (and an Ikea kitchen to boot). The Mahers unearthed the original house plans and restored it to the way it had been. The master bedroom is complete with midcentury furniture, lighting, and Pendleton bedding. ...
