We've been sleeping on a $200 mattress for the past 13 years, one that still needs to be rotated. Got it through a bed and breakfast who hooked us up with her mattress dealer and it's still the most comfortable thing in the world. Sheets, we go with Rough Linen. For guests, we'll throw on some Thomas Lee cotton sheets.
Haha, indeed. All I fucking want is an old-skool firm as fuck mattress. They're impossible to find these days, though. Everything has twelve inches of foam on top. I never had back problems until I started sleeping on a Luxury Pillow Top Mattress.
It is even more difficult to to find old school, firm wool-filled pillows.
Does anybody remember those mogu pillows they sold at Urban Outfitters, the super squishy ball-shaped things that were really cool to touch? Where the fuck can I find one? Mine's falling apart & all I can find are heart-shaped ones.
Fuuma's guide to buying a mattress part II:
You're like the Swiss of the North, the Italians had Botticelli, the french Soulages, the Greeks invented western philosophy (the only kind that matters), the americans triple penetration and so on for all the other ok people and all you have is your lame little luxury beds and annoying wooden furniture that all NYC lamers love to buy at second-hand stores that actually ask for a hand as payment.
