Shouldn’t YOUR HOME be higher than any lodge, spa, or “retreat”? YES! Even when you aren’t wealthy (who actually is!), it’s so necessary to place apart cash till you’ll be able to afford the mattress of your goals and the bed room type and design that you just love as a result of what – WE HAVE ONE LIFE! It’s to not be wasted or to take a seat round hoping for “some day I’ll…”. It’s additionally foolish to take holidays when your personal bed room isn’t a private oasis. Keep house and skip the summer season trip if it means you should utilize the identical cash to make your sleep room superb.

The time is now. At all times NOW.


For a number of years, since I left the states and my boxspring mattress system behind, I’ve been sleeping on the well-known German lattenrost system. It’s a mattress about half the thickness of a US one, on prime of wood slates. They snap at occasions, and it’s a must to exchange the slates. You’ll be able to break them from all kinds of issues, your youngster decides to leap on the mattress, you will have a very wild night time together with your companion (!), you merely get into mattress too quick or fall in on the “improper” angle, like together with your knee, and CRACK.

Certain, you may get various levels of “lattenrost”, a budget faculty model are ones you’ll be able to order at IKEA or Amazon, however you’ll be able to stage as much as get programs that aren’t manufactured from wooden in any respect however of versatile plastic lattenrost. And okay, these are wonderful and plenty of persons are having nice occasions on the top quality lattenrost. BUT, on the finish of the day, they’re nonetheless NOT a boxspring with a mattress on prime which is, to me, the last word, superior, sleep system. Plus, once you develop up used to a boxspring, there isn’t any going again.


Humorous truth, in Germany at most resorts, it’s all the time a boxspring system that you just sleep on. Why? I requested round and came upon that it’s as a result of they final the longest, are probably the most sturdy and positively give the most effective sleep. So why are German properties stuffed with lattenrost? Actually, I feel it comes all the way down to affordability FIRST and what you’re used to utilizing SECOND. It’s cultural, like beer and currywurst, and also you often don’t query one thing that folks have been doing and utilizing for one million years as a result of, properly, it really works.


However for me, this sleep system didn’t work for my again or my posture. I awakened loads of mornings with numbness in my legs or ft. I believed I used to be getting some main sickness. I handled again ache on and off since I moved to Germany but it surely didn’t happen to me that it was the help system BELOW the mattress. DUH. I purchased new mattresses a number of occasions, blaming the mattress time and again. It wasn’t ever the mattress. It was the lattenrost system on the whole. I began with the wood ones and graduated to the plastic, extra designer sort… But it surely nonetheless didn’t do something. My again well being nonetheless suffered.

Final 12 months, I used to be in Finland at an enormous design honest known as HABITARE and I noticed a mattress by MATRI that I beloved and observed it not solely had a stunning headboard known as LEMPI however an precise BOXSPRING system. I obtained just a little giddy and positively, excited. I stood there pondering, “Why don’t we’ve got this model in Germany, and why don’t I’ve a boxspring system in my house, how do I get one!?”. You’ll be able to import them, no less than final I checked, or purchase them in Germany at some shops, however they’re often like 6 figures and that’s, properly, costly even for somebody like me who will save for months or years for one thing that I actually love or want.


Anyway, I beloved the mattress a lot that I wrote to them to ask for a collab. They wrote again and earlier than I knew it, they accepted. Matri is an authentic Finnish mattress model based in 1986 and the beds are made in mainland Europe by expert employees however, the most effective half for me is that the mannequin I wished was 100% eco-friendly, no dangerous glues or something in any respect, so fully allergy-free. I’ve allergic reactions to attach and the entire stuff most beds are full of (dangerous chemical compounds, and so forth.) so I used to be so fortunately shocked. However the greatest shock was once they instructed me that they’ve a retailer IN HANNOVER beneath the identify MATRI by Fennobed which is the identify the corporate goes beneath in Germany. In Finland, they’re simply generally known as MATRI.

And sure, what are the probabilities that their store the place I may giddily bounce on mattresses (to check them), was solely 5 MINUTES BY CAR FROM MY HOUSE.

I missed this retailer someway in my each day life, however immediately I went and was greeted by probably the most caring and sort retailer supervisor, Basil Mahjoub, who defined the entire bests to me and what was greatest and what to search for after which we selected a topper and a headboard… I may even decide the kind of legs that I wished and the peak of the legs, and the mattress skirt (size, color and style!). And just a few WEEKS later, the mattress was IN MY HOME, put in by their workforce, trying higher than I had imagined. However most of all…


The medieval horror, the lattenrost system, is gone from my life endlessly. POOF. By no means once more will I’ve a mattress that makes me sick.


I sleep like an angel now. I really feel nice after I get into mattress at night time, I learn books in mattress once more, I cuddle my son and skim to him there, I even chat on Whatsapp in my mattress whereas utilizing a kind of sheet masks on my face whereas I’m ready for my toes to dry (pedicure). My room is my cuddle zone, my day spa, it’s the place I like to be! I feel the hazard with loving my mattress a lot is that I don’t all the time wish to LEAVE IT and “grownup” every day, however that’s not a nasty downside to have. Getting up every day refreshed and energized feels nice, versus with sore legs and a headache or a nasty capturing ache in my again like earlier than. And people days of horrible sleep nights and waking up sore are gone now and I’m so comfortable.


Right here is my bed room under. I wish to paint the partitions and alter the colours and the pendant and add blinds and alter the rug, as a result of I’m able to think about the room in a different way now that I’ve a brand new mattress to sleep on. I really like my nightstands, lamps and my mattress – these parts will keep for years and years. Particularly that mattress, OH YES. It’s all MINE. Journey at house!
