When it comes to quality of sleep and rest, there is one type of mattress that surpasses all others: the king-size bed
. And this has been true for a long time!
The King Size bed was invented more than eight centuries ago.
In those days, beds were shared by all but the most privileged members of a family. Among the wealthy, the single bed
was associated with hygiene and great comfort... but not only! Indeed, the single bed quickly became a real place of reception and politics, as early as the 13th century. From his bed, the king made legal decisions and received his advisors. Therefore, it had to be large and wide enough to fulfill all these functions and to be worthy of such an important figure. The wealthiest members of the nobility imitated the sovereign, and the king size bed became a symbol of power, and provided a sleeping comfort
worthy of the greatest members of the kingdom.
Over time, the King Size bed has of course become more widespread. Simmons
was the first manufacturer to introduce king size mattresses to the market in 1958. For a long time, the king size bed was reserved for large hotels and luxury rooms, but today it also attracts private individuals who love beautiful bedding and beautiful sleepers. On the less romantic and more practical side, it should also be noted that the height of French people has increased and continues to increase. Over the last century, each generation has gained 2.3 cm! Bed sizes are changing, and more and more people are choosing king-size beds suitable for all body types.
But Luxury Bed can also offer you the American Dream, or even the Californian Dream, with beds like the ones found in big hotels and the homes of movie stars: in the U.S.A, birthplace of XXL bedding, the Regular King Size bed dimensions are around 200 x 210cm. But American beds get even bigger: Luxury Bed can order beds tailored to your needs, such as “Super King Size” beds that have a width of at least 200cm and a length of 240cm. Other sizes for an American night include: the California King bed — 190 x 220 — and the Queen Size — 160 x 210.
