After years of brand name beds, last week I purchased my first no-name mattress set and so far I’m a happy camper. I found Factory Mattress (1650 Bayly Street, Pickering, Ontario) through a Craigslist ad; I fell in love with their Continental pillow top, a perfect combination of soft and firm and for $700, including delivery, the price was definitely right.
Factory Mattress specializes in custom-sized mattresses; my Continental features 8″ coils with side supports, multi-layers of upholstery pad, 3″ high-density, hypoallergenic foam Euro top and a quilted bamboo cover. I’m hoping my new mattress and I will have a long and happy relationship.
In India I bought a camel hair throw with the intention of using it as a bed skirt and I’m happy to report that the plan was a good one. The size is perfection and it hangs at exactly the right height on all sides, and the colours work with all my other bedding.
Next week I’m doing my first Home Exchange and I want my apartment to be as comfortable as possible for my guests. I’m pretty sure they’re going to relish their time in my brand new bed.
