Fancy A Rocking Bed?

Uncategorized

When we conjure up an image of a bed in our minds it is generally of a four-poster bed and mattress. But when designer Joe Manus did, it was something entirely different. Manus has created a revolutionary piece of furniture: a rocking bed that is encased in a circular frame.

If you like the idea of gently rocking off to sleep then this could be just the piece of furniture for you! But it turns out the mood rocking bed is made for much more than just sleep. The designer has claimed that a lot of his customers have bought the bed for use on patios, by their pools and even instead of a sofa. Whilst a lot of people love it for its sleep inducing quality, the rocking bed has also built quite a reputation for its love making attributes. Manus himself has said the idea behind his bed is to help you “Dream your dreams, love your lover, and rest your soul.” Whether you choose to use it for sleeping, stargazing or a bit of fun, the bed is an ideal companion.

For those of you who are concerned that they might feel any negative effects of the bed rocking, it comes complete with a rubber stop that allows you to lock the bed in place if you aren’t in the mood to have it rock freely. This will no doubt be a necessary tool for anyone who has had a little too much to drink and doesn’t want to feel as though the world is rocking.

Another endearing trait of the collection is that is created from upcycled materials. When speaking about how the materials are chosen, Manus said: “they are mostly the bastard materials of our industry. It is easy to make a nice chair out of Brazilian mahogany or a lampshade out of silk…those are beautiful materials. The higher level of design is taking materials that aren’t inherently beautiful like cardboard or plywood and turning them into something great; that’s the alchemy of Shiner (The company the furniture is made under).”

The creation of something beautiful from unusual products is something that goes hand in hand with current industrial design trends. The rocking bed isn’t just adaptable to your mood but also to your overall interior design. Shiner have announced that the steel frame can be adjusted to suit your needs, whether you want it blackened, brushed or made from wood. It is also available in a variety of sizes to suit your needs, from twin to king and queen sizes. So how much can you expect to splash out on the rocking bed? Well it doesn’t come too cheap at £1980…but for this price you are getting a bed that does rock. Customers have even bought these beds because they believe they can help alleviate some of the effects of autism!

While the price might be steep, if you have the funds then this is an amazingly unique bed that is well worth investing in.

High Quality Memory Foam Mattress For Sound Sleep

Home and Furniture

Why is memory foam mattress highly popular amidst the masses? Many of the people familiar with memory foam mattress may find this question quite an obsolete one. Initially, the visco-elastic memory foam developed by NASA were used in the astronauts’ planes’ seats, and since then, the foam has been in use for a variety of purposes. In fact, the use of memory foam has come long way. Besides being used in mattresses, pillows, furniture, and the seats of boats or vehicles etc; it is also very much used in manufacturing the medical equipments. For the people suffering from body aches, soreness, and spine problems, the memory foam mattress provides great relief and comfort.
One of the salient features of the memory foam mattress is that it is manufactured using a temperature sensitive material. This allows the memory foam mattress in adjusting itself as per the heat and body weight of the sleeper. With the increase of temperature, the soft memory foam mattress gets softer, and this facilitates more comfortable and sound sleep.
There was a time when it was a bit difficult to get the memory foam mattress as not many stores offered it. However, in recent days, it is just a matter of minutes. Yes, there are plenty of stores online that can be accessed at any point of time. In fact, anyone and everyone can now buy the major foam mattress without undergoing any hassles.

The Best Steps To Choosing Children’s Bedding

Uncategorized

You should never underestimate the importance of your child’s sleep, not only is it integral to you getting your own downtime but good quality sleep is integral in developing their bodies and minds. So if your child is struggling to get off to the land of nod then perhaps it is worthwhile looking into a change of bedding!

We all know first hand that the quality of pillows and duvets can have a significant effect on how soundly we sleep, regardless of age. Therefore having poor quality or unsuitable bedding for the time of year can cause lots of discomfort and the dreaded sleepless nights. What this means for a young child is mood swings, tears and energy dips throughout the day…things we would all happily live without.

It’s fair to say that it isn’t entirely obvious as to what duvets and sheets are best for our children, so here are some important points to take into consideration when shopping around for their ideal bed.

A Perfect Pillow
When hunting for the best pillow for your child it is important to understand that you do not want to put any strain on their neck, which means that you should be looking to purchase a fairly low and soft pillow. Be aware if your child has allergies and needs a synthetic pillow over feather options and look for a higher ration of ‘down’ for a soft option. For older children you can afford to invest in fancier choices such as memory foam pillows that provide additional comfort and support.

Allergy Protection
As we mentioned above, if your child suffers from allergies then you should definitely be investing in synthetic bedding that is non-allergenic. It is also important to make sure that you can clean the bedding from home rather than having to take it off to be professionally cleaned, unless you don’t mind the additional cost. Doing so will help keep dust mites and other allergies at bay.

Mattress Covers
It’s no secret that every child can be prone to the occasional accident during their sleep, so it is definitely worth doing yourself and the bed a favour by investing in a waterproof mattress protector to prevent any stains reaching the mattress. This way all you have to do is change the bedding after the accident and not worry about having to clean the mattress, allowing your child to get right back to sleep.

Duvet Tog Rating
Children aged between one and ten can be given a light weight duvet, avoid thick duvets at all cost because this weighs down on their smaller bodies and means they will be a lot warmer than an adult would. Once your child has surpassed the age of ten then you can afford to give them a duvet with a higher tog rating.

It is always a good idea to give an older child an additional option of a blanket as this means they are more in control of their temperature. If they are too cold then they can pull the blanket up and if they’re too hot they can either solely use the blanket or leave it at the foot of their bed.
