We considered doing this as a Hot or Not? and then decided to get a little more in depth. This is a remarkable product that we had never heard of. Magniflex is an Italian mattress company with a broad line of products from Eco to Pierre Cardin mattresses, but their pride and joy are their Gold and Platinum mattresses which sell from $24,000 up...
Discovered in the NYTimes, which reported on Magniflex's advance into the gold dog mattress category ($4k), A Gold-Thread Mattress Now Comes in Pet Sizes, we were delighted to see how much further they had gone.
Their gold and platinum mattresses are not only the only ones in the world, they are also GOOD for you:
"Traditionally the precious metal [gold] symbolised beauty and represented an association with wealth, power, and royalty. Today the same Gold yarn has been used to embellish our rest and support our health. Gold naturally possess a high degree of resistance to bacteria, and due to its anti-inflammatory, anti-stress, and anti-dust mite properties the Magniflex Gold fabric has been designed to facilitate improved health."
And it turns out, there's also silver:
"Marco Magni, global sales director for Magniflex and youngest son of the founder, doesn't even have one [a gold one]. In his home outside Florence, Mr. Magni sleeps on a Magniflex shot with silver (about $4,000 for a queen)."
Or for those, who want a little gold, there's always the Gold Pet Mattresses.
