Hastens Reveals New Furniture Collection This Month

Posted July 28th, 2021 in Brickell Mattress, Hastens, Hästens Herlewing by Jorge Lopez

Swedish mattress expert, Hastens, has just revealed a new line of furniture, designed by Bernadotte & Kylberg. The inaugural collection, the first of its kind for Hastens, features beaches and nightstands that pair perfectly with their luxury mattress, made with their own graphic intarsia motifs. Hastens has been known worldwide for its top-of-the-line beds but is making its way into bedroom furniture.


The collection was made in collaboration with Tre Sekel, a furniture workshop, taking inspiration from Hasten’s famous white and checkered design. You can see the pattern designed on the wood, made with hand-laid ash and walnut intarsia patterns.


As for Bernadotte & Kylberg, it is their second collaboration with luxury wool mattress brand Hastens. Every piece follows Hasten’s commitment to quality throughout the entire design and manufacturing process. The bench comes with storage space covered by a soft lid and a dividing drawer that moves sideways for easy, hassle-free access. The pieces are available in ash and walnut and have immaculate attention to detail, such as lined leather pieces.


“Design is so much more than color and shape. It is also about sustainability – creating timeless products of high quality in a well-thought-out way,” says Oscar Kylberg. Bernadotte & Kylberg draw inspiration as well from what they associate with Hastens – an unwillingness to compromise on what matters most in a mattress, which is the sheer quality and detail of its makeup.


Hastens mattresses, like the Hastens Herlewing Mattresses, are available for purchase through Brickell Mattress both in-store and online. To find out more, please visit us online.

What Exactly Happens When You Sleep?

There is nothing quite like laying your head down on the pillow at night, feeling yourself drift off into another cozy night of rest. It is even better when you wake up feeling renewed and ready for the day. Sleep is an essential part of the human experience but remains quite a mystery when it comes to health science.


Here is what we know for sure:


Within minutes of falling asleep, there are significant changes in both the brain and body. Your body temperature drops, brain activity slows, along with your heart rate and respiration. Sleep scientists have narrowed down the four stages of sleeping, each lasting anywhere from 70 to 120 minutes.


In the first stage, which occurs in the first five minutes after falling asleep, all body systems are impacted by a good night’s sleep on comfortable mattresses, then transitioning into stage two, where similar things occur, but at a higher rate. It is easier to wake up at this time.


The third stage is where your body is relaxed, and the brain has the slowest activity. The third stage is the deepest part of non-REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Deep sleep is a key part of repairing the body and assists with memory. The final stage is the only stage of REM sleep, where your brain picks up activity, and most of the body goes through temporary paralysis, except your eyes and muscles used for breathing. This is where dreams usually happen.


Most people spend most of their sleeping time in REM, occurring more often in the later parts of the night. Each person will experience all four stages, but how long they stay in them and what changes in the body occur will depend on external factors such as activity levels and sleeping environment.


Looking for a better night of rest? Hastens mattresses are designed specifically to help you fall asleep and stay asleep all night. Try out the Hastens experience at Brickell Mattress, located in the heart of Miami on Calle Ocho.

Reasons Why Sleep Supplements May Not be Working

Posted July 12th, 2021 in Brickell Mattress, Mattress Brands, mattress collection, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

More than a third of American adults are not getting the sleep they need. As people continue to get insufficient sleep, sleep supplement purchases are on the rise. Maybe you have heard of ones like melatonin, or perhaps even taken one yourself. Sometimes sleep supplements are not cutting it. Here is why.


Supplements can assist in helping you get a better night’s sleep, but if you expect it to treat a significant sleep disorder or even a mild case of insomnia, chances are it will not help the way you think it should. Do not assume a sleep supplement does not work right away. You may be dealing with something a little more serious. If you notice you have had poor sleep habits for a long time, you may want to go see your doctor and talk about a treatment plan that is right for you.


Taking a sleep supplement without having a proper routine will likely render it unhelpful. A supplement is a tool that helps you fall asleep, much like top mattress brands and a luxury mattress collection. You cannot rely on any one of these things to help you fall asleep. You need a bedtime routine to allow your mind and body to wind down and get ready to sleep.


You also want to make sure that you get rid of anything that is causing you to have a poor sleep throughout the night. Maybe it is a consistent loud noise, too much caffeine in the afternoon, or alcohol before bed. Those things can make you exhausted from no sleep, even if you take a supplement. Often, those supplements help us fall asleep, not stay asleep. You want to make sure you practice good sleep hygiene and sleep routines that help with back support throughout the night.


Always get input from your doctor before starting a new supplement regime.

Are Sleep Preferences an Influence on Personality?

There is extensive research on human personality traits – what makes us tick, how we interact with one another, and what we take an interest in. A new study has added another factor in personality, and it indicates that sleep preferences could be a factor.


Sleep preference is technically known as chronotype – an individual’s natural preference for the time of day they sleep and when they feel the most alert. This is largely influenced by genetics and impacts when we go to bed, when we wake up, our appetite, and our body temperature regulation.


In a recent study conducted by the Estonian Ministry of Education and Science, the results showed that a preference for morning versus evening was due in large part to genetics, along with sleep tendency. These factors were shown to indicate certain personality traits.


Those considered “night owls” were more likely to be more open-minded. “Early birds” showed more aptness to be agreeable and conscientious. The study showed that this lines up with understanding and complying with societal obligations. Night owls had a harder time adjusting to societal normalities, like a schedule centered around an early bird world.


The study also showed a higher link for night owls to a lower score in self-control, meaning substance dependence was a higher likely outcome than their morning-inclined counterparts. Societal pressures, like families, jobs, and competing schedules, could be one of the greatest causes of this trait.


Whether you are a morning or night person, one thing is for sure – getting enough sleep is essential. Sleeping on a luxury bed can make all the difference. The ViSpring Signatory Superb mattress is one of the best beds on the market for perfecting the art of sleep.

How Much Sleep Do You Really Need?

Posted June 22nd, 2021 in Brickell Mattress, Top Mattress Brands, Vi-Spring, Vi-Spring Elite by Jorge Lopez

Sleep is essential for health, no matter your age. It boosts your mind, repairs the body to function properly, helps fight diseases, and relaxes your muscles for optimal function. However, if you have ever gone a night with minimal sleep, you know how a lack of sleep can feel like a sudden illness with the inability to focus and function normally.


While everyone needs plenty of sleep, your age will determine how much. Knowing the right amount of sleep for your age is the first step, along with evaluating your mattress condition (we recommended ViSpring Elite Mattresses), which will help you determine your sleep health. Other factors such as activity levels and overall health will also have an impact.


Children will need far more sleep than adults. For example, newborns need 14-17 hours, infants 12-15 hours, toddlers 11-14 hours, and preschoolers 10-13 hours. School-aged children (6-13 years old) need 9-11 hours of sleep, while teenagers need 8-10 hours each night. Adults (ages 18 and older) need a minimum of seven hours.


Make sleep a priority in your schedule. Budget the hours you need between social activities, work, and other responsibilities to not cut yourself short. Improving sleep hygiene – which includes not only the amount of sleep you get each night but sleeping conditions and other sleep habits – will set you up for success.


Investing in a good mattress can also help you sleep well, as they are the core support of your body and source of comfort throughout the night. A British fleece wool mattress and other luxury mattresses can help you achieve quality sleep.

The Difference Between Chronic Insomnia and a Bad Night of Sleep

Posted June 14th, 2021 in Brickell Mattress, Mattress Brands, mattress collection, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

At some point, everyone will have trouble sleeping from time to time. Major stress, a poor sleeping environment, and illness can be to blame, but there are some who suffer from chronic insomnia. Chronic insomnia refers to the long-term pattern of having trouble sleeping, and someone with it has trouble falling asleep or staying asleep three nights per week for at least three months.

It is estimated that 24% of Americans experience acute insomnia (occasional trouble falling asleep or only a few nights of poor sleep) every year and that 35% of those individuals will develop chronic insomnia. Insomnia can occur for many reasons, like illness and physiological issues like anxiety and depression. Some people’s genetics may play a role in the likelihood of developing insomnia too.

If ignored, it can have long-term effects like mood and memory issues. While chronic insomnia and other sleep disorders should be evaluated by a doctor, the occasional night of restlessness is easier to treat. If you have noticed your restlessness has increased, consider your sleeping environment. Is your mattress providing back support?

If not, it may be time to invest in one of the top mattress brands. Having a bed you can comfortably fall asleep on may be one of the most useful components in fighting off the occasional night of poor sleep. When you lay down each night, you should be able to successfully drift off into sleep, not lay awake for hours trying to get comfortable.

Each person has their own mattress preferences, which is why having options open to you from a mattress collection is important. Stop by Brickell Mattress in Miami. You can see a variety of mattresses, mattresses toppers, and pillows, evaluating each and ensuring they meet your needs.

4 Ways Your Mattress Affects Your Health

Posted May 20th, 2021 in Brickell Mattress, mattress collection, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

When it comes to a mattress, short-cutting on price is never a good idea. The right mattress can have an enormous, yet positive impact on your health, sleep quality, and overall quality of life. Poor sleep can decrease productivity during the working day and weaken the body, making it difficult to get through a long list of to-dos.

The right mattress promotes restful sleep and decreases the side effects associated with stress and anxiety. An uncomfortable mattress can build up tension in the body, and a continuation of poor sleep will ultimately skyrocket levels of stress and anxiety, insomnia, and other sleep disorders. With these risen levels comes an inability to fall asleep and stay asleep, putting your body and mind through a vicious cycle. This can be prevented with a mattress that allows you to sleep well.

Misalignment of joints and muscles is common in mattresses that are worn out and provide little support. Over time, you continually wake up feeling sore and can have achy joints, along with back, hip, and neck pain. A high-quality mattress from a mattress collection at Brickell Mattress can provide your body the support it needs and allows for a healthy sleep posture. These mattresses should distribute your weight evenly to reduce stress impact on the joint and provide back support.

Old mattresses are often the source of allergies. Over time, the mattress becomes dirty and need to be replaced. When they are not, they can lead to acne, dry skin, congestion, sneezing, and runny noses. If you have sensitive skin, chronic allergies, or asthma, this can prove to be especially problematic.

Have chronic back pain? Your mattress may be to blame. Improper support contributes to dull aches and pains and can distort your spinal alignment. This can lead to interrupted and uncomfortable sleep, causing a lack of sleep and many other issues.

Having a high-quality mattress will help you have a better night’s sleep and overall better health. Invest in the right mattress for your home and lifestyle with Brickell Mattress. We have a wide selection of top-of-the-line mattresses like Hastens and Vi-Spring, Carpe Diem, and other top mattress brands.

Well-Known Celebrity Chooses Hästens

Posted March 22nd, 2021 in Brickell Mattress, Luxury Beds, mattress collection, Top Mattress Brands by Jorge Lopez

When it comes to prioritizing sleep, celebrities are known to splurge. Case in point: rapper, songwriter, actor, and entrepreneur Drake made the news not too long ago when he became one of the first to purchase the Hästens Grand Vividus.

However, he is far from being the only well-known name to choose the ultra-comfort of the Hästens name and its all-natural, handmade beds.

Glamour magazine recently placed the spotlight on the multi-talented actress, singer, comedian, writer, and producer Rebel Wilson, perhaps best known to American audiences for her role as Fat Amy in the Pitch Perfect film series. The article focused on Wilson’s choices of products to help her relax and sleep at night, stating that she has to sleep for at least eight hours each night or else she “literally can’t function”. Getting eight hours has proven to be a challenge in her line of work as she is frequently traveling to different time zones, including her native Australia.

While Wilson mentions a list of products in the article, what’s most notable is her admittance that she sleeps on a Hästens mattress, which she calls the “bougie-est purchase” in her home. However, she emphasizes the importance of sleep. While she doesn’t specify which mattress, each Hästens bed provides worlds of comfort regardless of which model is chosen.

Remember that you don’t have to be a celebrity to prioritize a better night’s sleep. We carry the world’s top mattresses brands and our mattress collection includes names like Hästens, Vispring, and more.
