It’s said that beds and mattresses are one of the things that consumers consider worthwhile investments, and Tom Cruise obviously agrees with that. Before his nuptials with Katie Holmes, he plunked down $50k for what many consider the best bed money can buy. It’s the Vividus Bed from Swedish manufacturer Hästens. Each one is painstakenly handcrafted, with layers of horsehair (how do they gather that?) cotton and wool. The pine frame is held together without screws via a dovetail-jointing method. And inside are spiral springs that are placed in one at a time, that supposedly bear the weight of your body individually. Note to Tom: Just because they’re strong, doesn’t mean you can go jumping up and down them!
