Recently, I overheard a discussion in a bed store while I was doing some research. There was a young couple, early twenties, who were shopping for a new bed when the young lady asked “Will this [king size bed] fit in our room?” The young man stated “Sure, our room is 11’x12’, it should fit really easy.” I walked over and introduced myself to the young couple, and offered to help them pick a bed. I learned that they were moving in together for the first time and were renting an apartment. The apartment was an economy 1 bedroom unit on the third floor.

A bed is something more than just furniture to sleep on. If this were the case, a mattress on the floor would be a bed. A bed is really a statement, a comfort, and art all at the same time.
