We’ve combined our (new!) Boomerang bed with an adjustable bed and mattress to make a pretty amazing combo.
We’ve sold a a ton of them over the past 6 weeks…there seems to be something in the water…? or maybe it’s just that a lot of people are discovering how versatile they are.
Adjustable beds can be really useful for therapeutic purpose, such as recovery from surgery, swollen legs, back pain and circulation issues. They also offer a host of comfort benefits such as massage, customizable from side to side (the bases come as two separate single XL units to configure a King size bed) and a luxurious convenience for reading or watching television.
The new all wood Fawcett Queen Size Boomerang Bed, available in White Oak or Black Walnut, starting at $3295 – in White Oak.
The amazing Fawcett Model 9 all Latex Mattress – priced at $3299(not to be confused with the amazing Fawcett Model 9 S …as in S for inner Spring…but lest we digress)
We did a lot of research to find the perfect mechanism for our Tommy sofa bed and of course ended up bringing in these mechanisms from Italy. Their superior construction and amazing design result in a sofa that does an incredible job of housing the bed inside of it.
The sofa itself is firm yet comfortable and when it opens, you’ll find a Fawcett 3″ – 100% Natural Talalay latex mattress in a multi-stretch cotton cover. The Tommy Sofa-Bed is available in European Double and European Queen size with a variety of different arm shapes.
Overall dimensions for the sofas are: Double – 37″ Deep x 77″ Long Queen – 37″ deep x 84″ Long Mattress dimensions are: Double – 56″ x 79″ Queen – 63″ x 79″
Priced From $4208 in Double Size; Also available in a 3/4 size for $3871
So you’ve been thinking about getting a new mattress. And there are these trendy new mattresses that are called “bed in a box”. They are shipped to your residence, and you unpack them…and voila, your mattress is ready! Sounds pretty good?
And for some people, a bed in a box may suit their needs. For example…If you live a long ways from a mattress store – like thousands of kilometres, then it could save some considerable time and expense.
But we can’t help feel that the mattresses-in-a-box we see for sale online equate to “you get what you pay for”. When it comes to mattresses many people don’t differentiate between the various materials and components that go into them. Perhaps it’s because mattresses are actually fairly complex – and the materials vary widely.
So what tends to happen is that people default to convenience and price…but…
Is a mattress in a box convenient? Yes.
Is a mattress in a box inexpensive? Sometimes…in the short run.
Is a bed in a box comfortable? For some people, if they get lucky.
However, the materials & components that go into a mattress are not equal. The cheaper the mattress, the cheaper, and more inferior, the materials. What’s the problem with this? Inferior mattress components often mean:
A Less durable mattress. If your mattress needs replacing or has serious wear impressions after a few years, is it really less expensive?
Less comfortable. The higher quality materials such as high quality natural latex and springs simply provide a higher degree of comfort.
Lack of customization. One size fits all is the norm for most bed in a box mattresses.
Poor quality sleep. This one really follows less comfortable, but we think it’s an important point on its own. Poor sleep means poor health. The link between proper sleep and health are strong.
Cheaper mattresses always mean cheaper materials. We actually pay more for the raw materials that go into some of our mattress, than most toxic mattresses actually cost the consumer. Yes it’s cliche, but you get what you pay for.
Even worse, many toxic mattresses are not cheap! (especially if they need replacing in a few years) We’ve seen bed-in-a-box models priced in the same range our mattresses made with natural talalay latex, organic cotton & organic joma wool. Ours are customized for the individual and hand-made by our amazing Fawcett mattresses craftsmen What’s with that?? Hint. We’re factory direct.
So, it begs the analysis, let’s compare an amazing Fawcett mattress to a Bed-in-a-box mattress!
At Fawcett, we produce and manufacture our own amazing beds. Certain components we purchase, like the core base frame – a Stemma Frame, which is carefully crafted to provide proper support for your Fawcett Mattress.
The manner in which the Stemma base is constructed creates a little bit of flex to the bed. The wood slats are are also adjustable in firmness. Each side is adjustable – for couples this is a great option.
If one person prefers a firmer support base compared to their partner sleeping on the other side, simply adjust accordingly. Simply slide the torsional sleeves toward the middle and this will create a more flexible or softer base. When placed to the outside, the base is firmer.
Then, we’ll add our custom crafted bed to the frame. Featured here, is the Christian Bed.
Minimalist and slight in design and often considered for smaller rooms where space is a concern, this bed is well suited to many homes from transitional to contemporary.
All of our beds are manufactured in house using the same materials and sensibilities as our mattresses.
All of our beds are available in many fabrics from recycled content, to all natural as well as our selection of either faux leather or Wollsdorf FOC Earth vegetable dyed leather top grain leather. Featured here is a grey Tonica fabric.
Next simply add a Fawcett Mattress, and you’ve got the near perfect healthy sleeping environment! Special project? Different size bed or mattress? No problem. We’ll create almost anything to suit your needs.
