The Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge gathered with friends and family as Kensington Palace held a launch party to celebrate the newly designed imperial sleeping space, Time reports.
Savoir Beds was inspired to make such a lavish bed from those used by “British monarchs throughout the 17th and 18th centuries.”
“No one can deny that it’s a lot of money,” says Savoir’s managing director Alistair Hughes. “But for the kind of people who spend $10,000 a night staying in presidential suites or driving a fabulous car, it’s something that could very well appeal.”
The Royal Bed was created with “a mattress made with cashmere, cotton, and curled Latin American horse tail. (Horse tail wicks away moisture, helps maintain body temperature, and provides natural spring). The silk threads involved in the manufacture of just one bed would stretch all the way from New York to Miami.”
The high-end bed design company is known for their extensive client list including the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Madonna, and continues to cater to an extremely exclusive clientele. While Savoir will only make 60 Royal Beds, the brand has a more “affordable” sleep design line that ranges from $8,000 – $80,000, giving 1,000 people the chance to relish in their seemingly costly, but worth-it, sleep creations.
