The Vividus Bed by Hastens
I’ve been looking at Hastens beds for the past year or so ever since they started their latest media campaign in the design magazines. In this time frame, I’ve actually experienced one of these beds, and there is no doubt that they are unrivaled. Everything is wonderful about they way they feel. But when an everyday object like a bed costs nearly $60,000 I can’t be happy with the piece. I’m sorry but no! What really makes it cost that much? I went down to my local comfy bed store named McRoskey and found that, in fact, it takes a lot of work to make a really good bed. Their McRoskey Airflex beds, which are some of the best by the way, only cost about $10,000 ($5,000 for the mattress set) with all the bells and whistles included. So, what am I missing? There is a $50,000 deficit here. This is what I like to call the ripoff fee. This is the pure profit fee that this company is ripping you off for the honor of owning one of their beds… I could be full of shit, though. If anyone out there owns a Vividus and feel like they get every bit of their $60 grand out of the bed, then please let me know.
