The Most Expensive Mattresses in the World
Updated: Oct 15, 2020
Just how much are some people willing to pay for a new mattress?
At The Bed Boss, we carry premium King mattresses in the $800 to $1,500 price range (don’t overpay elsewhere!), but what makes a mattress so special that it carries a price tag of $15,000… even upwards of $400,000??
Let’s take a look at some of the world’s most expensive mattresses.
Duxiana DUX 8008
Duxiana describes the Dux 8008 not as a mattress, but as a “suspension system for your body.” As the first mattress on our list, the Dux 8008 starts around $8,000 for the Twin size. Upgrade to the King for $15,000. Why so costly? The DUX 8008 model features a patented coil design and about four times the amount of coils as the average mattress. They say the coil matrix, removable inserts, and lumbar technology transcends beyond your everyday mattress, transforming the DUX 8008 from a mattress into a “vehicle of wellbeing.”
Our best-loved Revolution Hybrid mattress holds its own against a mattress like the DUX 8008—at a fraction of the price! We like to describe our ultra plush Revolution Hybrid as innovative, indulgent, and uncompromising. The 6-layer design features our best memory foams and individually pocketed coils for all of the supportive pressure relief your heart (and lumbar region) could desire.

Kluft Palais Royale
At around $23,000 for the King size, the Kluft Palais Royale is one of the most expensive mattresses sold exclusively by Bloomingdale’s. The mattress features over 2000 coils, Talalay latex foams, and “exotic materials” like Moosburger horsehair and alpaca wool. Kluft takes pride in their craftsmanship. Every premium mattress they make features extensive hand stitching and functional tufting.
But why choose exotic horsehair when you can choose super soft, tried-and-true cashmere? Our Reflection innerspring mattress features a wonderfully plush pillow top with a cashmere cover that feels good to your fingertips. Not to mention, it checks all the boxes with qualities like traditional craftsmanship, a highly resilient 5-zone coil system, and an affordable price.
Vispring Masterpiece Superb
Vispring has been making customized (or “bespoke,” if you are from across the pond) luxury mattresses and beds for over 120 years. They claim to have created the pocketed coil and have been manufacturing pocketed coils for their beds since their inception. The Masterpiece Superb mattress incorporates 3 layers of pocketed coils, natural shetland wool, springy horsetail hair, and other natural fibers. Due to the high cost of the natural materials and the artisan level of craftsmanship involved, the Vispring Masterpiece Superb is one of the most expensive mattresses currently on the market at $40,000 for the King size.
If you like mindfully layered design and a high level of craftsmanship, our double hand-tufted Prestige hybrid mattress is an alternative to the Masterpiece Superb that delivers a luxury sleep experience minus the price tag of a new car. Featuring a cashmere cover, gel memory foam, latex, and individually pocketed coils with 5-zone support, Prestige achieves a level of quality unmatched in the industry at a price still accessible for those on a modest budget.
Hästens Grand Vividus
The Sweedish word “hästen” translates to “horse” in English—a big hint as to how Hästens makes their mattresses. The founder of Hästens, Pehr Adolf Janson, didn’t start his career as a mattress maker back in the mid 1800s, but as a master saddler. In fact, Janson was such a skilled craftsman that King Oscar I awarded him a master certificate in 1852, the year Hästens claims to have been founded. And since 1948, Hästens has been operating out of their singular factory in a small Swedish town.
Master craftsmen dedicated to the mattress trade make all of Hästens mattresses and foundations. Per their namesake, horsehair is the most prevalent material. Almost 600 hours of labor and boat loads of exotic materials are sewn into the Grand Vividus, equating to a price tag just shy of $400,000.
