Sleep Trackers May Negatively Affect Your Slumber

Posted May 2nd, 2018 in Luxury Beds, Mattress Brands, Top Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Chris Corey

trackSleepWith the ever-increasing popularity of wearables, sleep trackers are going mainstream more and more as people continue their never-ending quest to achieve and adopt better sleep patterns and habits. While these devices are supposed to be helpful, recent research provided by the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine may suggest otherwise.

The research appears to indicate that the sleep trackers are actually contributing to worse sleep because the participants/patients were placing too much attention on the sleep tracker. Individuals self-diagnosing themselves with sleep disorders like insomnia were ruining their sleep because they were not meeting the standards of what the tracker determined was “good quality” sleep. Hence, the people who participated became dependent on their device, leading to unnecessary concerns and stress at bedtime and the belief that whatever their sleep tracker was telling them was the truth.

Instead of relying on a tracker, you may wish to consider practicing better sleep habits and making sure that the mattress you’re sleeping on isn’t keeping you up at night. We’ll be happy to give you some tips on making sure your mattress is the right one for you.

Choose a Natural Mattress in 2018

Posted December 21st, 2017 in Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring by Chris Corey

hastensMattress

You spend a tremendous chunk of your life laying on a mattress. Hence, it’s imperative that you take the time to find a mattress that will give you a restful night’s sleep and provide essential support to your body so you wake up feeling energized, refreshed, and ready to tackle the day’s responsibilities. With that in mind, it’s strongly worth considering what a natural mattress can do for you.

Natural mattresses are—pun intended—naturally supportive on your back and your spine. These mattresses can easily mold to your body’s unique shape so that your body is free of pressure or stress, thereby minimizing the amount of tossing and turning. What’s more, natural mattresses that use materials such as horsehair will also help with keeping your body temperature regulated and cool throughout the night. Considering how unbearably warm South Florida’s weather can become during the summer season, this is a massive plus, reducing the odds of waking up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat.

Hästens has earned itself a loyal following for its premium mattresses utilizing all-natural materials, including horsehair. Why not consider improving your body and mind in 2018 with a better night’s sleep?

Sleep Clean: Is It Time for an Organic Mattress?

Posted March 21st, 2015 in From Our Sleep Experts, Uncategorized, Vi-Spring by Mattress Matters

Sleep Clean: Organic Cotton from Natural MattressThe first thing that usually sends thinking people who care about their health running to the “organic mattress store” is the realization that most beds are soaked in flame retardant. For 99% of the beds out there, such a chemical treatment is necessary – beds have to meet certain fire safety standards, and the cheapest and best way to get synthetic petroleum based foams and highly flammable polyester fabrics, fillers and other junk to meet those standards is to cover them with poison chemical fire retardant.

If you are one of the enlightened and have made the decision to sleep organic, here is a checklist to help you compare organic mattresses and choose the one that is right for you.

Things to Consider When ‘Going Organic’

  1. Get the facts straight. There is a lot of misinformation out there and you should be aware that a mattress can be called “organic” as long as it has some organic material in it. For example, a mattress may contain organic cotton as a filler, and be advertised as an organic mattress, even if there is glue and polyurethane foam inside and a have a toxic acrylic, rayon or nylon fabric covering the entire thing.
  2. Make a list of known organic mattress materials so that when you are making comparisons, the process of elimination will be as simple as crossing off those beds that have anything else inside. Look for things like: organic wool, organic cotton, organic bamboo, organic steel, or special coir fiber which is made of shredded coconut shells. Organic wool is especially important because in its natural, untreated form, it is naturally fire resistant, antimicrobial, anti-allergen, dust mite and bed bug resistant. Equally important, it is supremely comfortable.
  3. One important note about organic latex. If you are considering a natural latex mattress, make sure it is 100% from organic non-chemically treated rubber trees. However, there is no mattress company making a 100% organic latex bed. It is not possible to whip sap from the rubber tree and produce a natural foam. There must be at least some additives.
  4. Last, just like food, if you have never heard of it, it is probably not good for you. Take mattresses with things like polyurethane foam, formaldehyde, boric acid, antimony, melamine, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers off of your natural organic mattress comparison list.

Brands That Use Organic Materials in Mattresses

We have done the research and here is our short list of acceptable organic mattresses.

  1. Hastens: Renowned Swedish mattress masters Hästens make each one of their mattresses by hand using natural materials like horsehair, flax, wool, steel and pine.
  2. Savvy Rest: Organic mattresses made in Virginia with natural latex, organic cotton and organic wool.
  3. White Lotus: A great source for healthy bedding, including natural latex mattresses, organic wool and cotton mattresses, all handmade in the US
  4. The Wool Bed Company: Natural wool mattresses, hand-made, free-form, include only material raised or grown on farmland in the USA, without any wood, metal, foam or latex.
  5. Woodstock Organic Mattress: Handmade in the USA of 100% natural materials like organic cotton, wool, horsehair, and 98% pure latex. No polyester, polyurethane foam, or other harmful chemicals are used.
  6. Editors Pick! Vispring: Hand made in England with natural materials including Shetland wool, organic cotton, and Austrian horsetail. Learn more about Vispring at Brickell Mattress in Miami.

So, Time to Go Organic?

Natural and Organic mattresses are much more comfortable than synthetic. This how people used to sleep, on top of all natural farm raised goodness, and it is still the best.

The Vi-Spring Mattress in Miami and Everywhere Makes All The Difference!

Posted July 14th, 2014 in Luxury Beds, Vi-Spring by Mattress Matters

vi spring mattress miami

You may not consider your mattress as being one of the most important things you own, but actually it is. We spend over a third of our time sleeping and with the right mattress we will never lose a minute of it again.

There are numerous mattress options out there—sprung, padded, memory foam. At the high end of the spectrum, locally carried at Brickell Mattress, is the Vi-Spring mattress in Miami. It is a hand-tied mattress consisting of 100 percent Shetland wool and exclusively handcrafted in England.

What Makes Vi-Spring Different

“Vi-Spring” comes from the Roman numeral 6, VI, because each spring coil makes six turns, giving the body optimum support and enough flex to react to shifting movement during sleep. They are one of the few bed makers to manufacture their own springs. Their hand-tied springs are bound together with stitching that has a greater flexibility than machine-assembled springs. Vi-Spring sews their springs into individual fabric pockets – which are then laid in rows and stitched together. Each row is independent, so when the springs conform to one person’s movement they won’t affect the person sleeping next to them.

One aspect that makes Vi-Spring’s mattresses unique is their side stitching. Unlike machine-manufactured mattresses, Vi-Spring doesn’t need a metal structure, because skilled craftsmen side stitch the padded wool sides to the outside three rows of springs by hand. The tension of the twine keeps the mattress supported and in a perfect square.

Vi-Spring also protects the environment and supports the local industry, using 100 percent British wool and 100 percent natural fibers (wool, cotton, horsehair and cashmere) with no added chemicals. The wool acts as a natural “wicking” fiber, in a way that synthetic fibers can’t, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.

In 2012, Vi-Spring received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, a very prestigious award in the United Kingdom and authentication to the timeless quality and value of their products and technique.

At Brickell Mattress, we offer the finest selection of memory foam, innerspring, air, water and latex mattresses available on the market today. After being in the bedding industry for over 8 years, we know what you’re looking for in a mattress.
