Comments Off on Score an organic mattress worth 2199 from PlushBeds

Getting a good night’s sleep depends on a lot of things, but a well-made, comfortable mattress can make all the difference. Unfortunately, the majority of mattresses on the market (especially the cheap ones) are made with synthetic chemicals, such as polyurethane foam doused in toxic flame-retardants, which can contribute to health problems like allergies, asthma, endocrine issues and even cancer . Non-organic mattresses also come with an environmental footprint that would give any conscious person nightmares. Now there’s a mattress company called PlushBeds that raises the bar with a luxurious line of Botanical Bliss mattresses . Constructed with the highest quality natural materials derived from ethical sources, they have zero synthetic materials, chemical fire-retardants or volatile organic compounds (VOCs) mixed in, so they don’t off-gas toxic fumes – and they are carefully designed to give you lasting comfort for years to come. If you’re in need of a new mattress, you’re in luck, because we’ve teamed up with PlushBeds to give away an organic mattress worth 2199 : ENTER HERE FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN! a Rafflecopter giveaway Contest open only to residents of the continental U.S. PLUSH BEDS BOTANICAL BLISS MATTRESSES Each Plushbeds botanical bliss mattress has a dense core of 100 percent organic latex, a cover of non-woven organic cotton , and up to 10 pounds of 100 percent Jona New Zealand wool for loft. The most important element of a Botanical Bliss organic latex mattress is the natural latex – made from the ‘white milky fluid’ tapped from rubber trees. Poorly managed rubber plantations use a lot of pesticides, not to mention water and energy, to produce latex, but Plushbed’s latex is responsibly and ethically harvested. PlushBeds keeps their mattresses clean and green by using organic latex from Sri Lanka’s ARPICO , which is certified in accordance with the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) and uses at least one form of renewable energy to power their operations. Unlike talalay latex, according to the company, organic latex results in a heavier, denser mattress core that provides optimum support — freeing you from the tyranny of a sagging mattress that leaves you feeling stiff and cranky in the morning. Natural latex is springy, resilient (meaning it doesn’t sag), and naturally anti-microbial. Adding to the Botanical Bliss mattress’ comfort level is its cover, which is made with 100 percent GOTS certified organic cotton . PlushBeds says their non-woven mattress covers are softer, more breathable, and more elastic than woven covers, and offer better moisture control and pressure relief. And because the cotton was grown sans harmful herbicides or pesticides , it is safer for both the environment in which the cotton is grown and the end user. Topping each mattress’ layer of latex is up to 10 pounds of Jona New Zealand wool. Wool is naturally fire-resistant, so there’s no chemical flame retardants to disturb your sleep or health. Natural wool also allows your body to quickly reach a comfortable sleeping temperature and maintain it throughout the night. Two inches of pressure-reducing latex provides additional cushion, and an orthopedic foundation comprised of all-natural spruce wood lends superior pressure-absorbing support, rounding out the five main components of an American-made Botanical Bliss mattress. If you don’t win our contest but still want your own Botanical Bliss mattress , note the price tag is reasonable for a luxury mattress of this quality – starting at $1,099. Each comes with a risk-free 100-night sleep trial, 100-day comfort exchange, and a 25-year warranty with free shipping and returns. Also, PlushBeds is having a Memorial Day Sale with $1200 off all Organic Latex Mattresses – use the code INHABITAT50 for an additional $50 off. + PlushBeds

Artist transforms discarded mattresses into surprisingly delicious-looking food

Comments Off on Artist transforms discarded mattresses into surprisingly delicious-looking food

Lor-K’s EAT ME project comprises a dozen sculptures, all created on-site on the streets of Paris . The artworks are site-specific and take two to six hours to complete. One finished, the artist leaves the fate of the sculpture to the city and will be inevitably removed by either an art collector or garbage man. Related: What kind of toxins are lurking in your mattress? While the concept and process are interesting in themselves, it’s Lor-K’s attention to detail that takes EAT ME to the next level. Whether it’s the illusion of powdered sugar on the waffle mattress or the grill marks on the toasted cushion baguette, the beautifully executed installations make it challenging to believe that the delicious objects were born from dirty mattresses. “As with all my projects, my main goal is to attract the attention of passersby on the waste littering the sidewalks of our cities,” she told Fast Company . “I wish to highlight their potential.” + Lor-K Via Fast Company Images via Lor-K

Comments Off on Vitra’s new museum will house a permanent exhibition of iconic furniture designs

Since its conception, the museum has had a number of temporary exhibitions , but its collection has never been on permanent display. Schaudepot aims to address this problem and act as a venue for presenting key objects from the collection to the public, including iconic pieces by Charles & Ray Eames, Verner Panton, Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto, Gerrit Rietveld, and 3D-printed objects from recent times. It will also function as the second access point to the campus. Related: Quirky Lamp Made from 80 Doll Sized Iconic Vitra Chairs and Tables The presentation will be complemented by a smaller temporary exhibition dedicated to the “Radical Design” movement of the 1960s. Scandinavian and Italian design, including pieces by Charles and Ray Eames , will be featured on the lower ground level. + Herzog & de Meuron Images via Herzog & de Meuron and Vitra Design Museum

LED Pod Lamp marries nature with modern design for eye-catching ambient lighting

Comments Off on LED Pod Lamp marries nature with modern design for eye-catching ambient lighting

Mother Nature’s designs are the ultimate inspiration. The “Pod Lamp,” which resembles the flower casing of a Queen Palm tree, is a beautifully textured floor and table lamp with an ambient LED lighting effect. Cook Island born Ron Crummer envisioned the design when he discovered a fibrous palm casing nestled amongst roadside shrubs on one of his morning walks. Like the Pod Lamp, many of his designs are inspired by the abundance of nature in his upbringing and often feature a modern twist. The handcrafted Pod Lamp, along with all of Crummer’s designs, is made in New Zealand. Crummer’s goal is to produce well-designed objects that are kind to the planet, produce minimum waste, and tell a story. Crummer is a self-taught designer with qualification in a Bachelor of Arts degree and a diploma in interior design.

Just before 8PM local time yesterday evening, a massive earthquake rocked Chile . The 8.3 magnitude quake caused buildings to bend and sway, grocery store shelves to spill goods into aisles, and waves over 3.5 meters (more than 11 feet) high to smash against the coastline. Over one million people have been evacuated, but luckily, thanks to a successful cell phone warning system, the death toll is very low.
