A department store mattress in a $1 million Brickell condo? No way. After all, we spend 1/3 of our lives in bed, more time than we spend anywhere else in our homes. At Hastens, each mattress takes a minimum of 140 hours to hand-construct to exact customer specifications. The frame alone takes a week to build of slow-growth pine from forests north of the Arctic Circle. Lay atop natural hand-teased horsehair, cotton and wool. Tom Cruise has one. Get yours for $60,000. Other models start at a much more modest $5,000; Hastens.com. — Stacy Wynn
Renowned for designer closets and unique storage solutions throughout the home, California Closets can help make cleaning up and staying organized a breeze. Details like drawer dividers, glass-front cabinets, customizable lighting and accessory organizers are key to maintaining an exceptional, orderly space. When spaces are tailored to specific items, clean-up is that much easier. Drawer dividers are the perfect solution to gain control quickly, as they keep things systematic and in place. Glass-front cabinets or shelves, with customizable lighting, display treasured items and free up counter space. To maintain a neat and tidy home, keep things accessible; after all, if they’re easy to get to, they’ll be easy to put away. Specialized storage solutions, such as pull-out baskets and adjustable shelving, make it possible to access often-used items while keeping clutter hidden. Accessories can be organized with hooks and racks that display items (like ties or necklaces) and prevent them from getting lost or tangled. While organization is the ultimate goal, California Closets also focuses on providing products in a variety of finishes to complement any design aesthetic. The ultimate goal of any California Closets designer is to create functional solutions for every budget without sacrificing quality or design.
