The Luxury Mattress of Queen Elizabeth II
A mattress can make or break your sleep schedule. So, it’s no surprise that Queen Elizabeth invested a large chunk of change to ensure she’s as comfortable as possible.
The mattress is known as the “Royal State Bed” by Savoir. Not only does it cost £125,000, but it’s also an incredibly rare find, since only 60 editions of the bed were ever crafted. According to reports, the mattresses took well over 700 hours to make each. The materials consist of Latin American horse tail, Mongolian cashmere and 1,600 miles worth of silk thread from Suffolk. For Queen Elizabeth, Savior enlisted the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton to engrave the royal family’s crest above the bed.
In an interview with the Daily Beast, The Savoir’s chief executive officer (Alistair Hughes) confirmed that the mattress was definitely well worth the money. “Clearly, it’s an expensive bed, there’s no questioning that. But that reflects the work that goes into it, the craftsmanship, and the materials we use,” he said to interviewers.
Suffice to say, it’s a well-made spot for one to spend 6-12 hours of their days in.
