-MONDAY’S PICK OF THE WEEK- This week’s pick is from our Poughkeepsie showroom furniture counselor, Karyn. She picked our handmade, two-sided Shifman mattresses, the finest handmade mattress in the world. When shopping for a mattress Karyn suggests you ask some important questions:
Is it a one or two sided mattress? A one sided mattress is only half a product and will last half as long. Shifman only makes 2 sided mattresses.
Does it have a real box spring? A foundation without springs can’t provide support and comfort. Shifman uses an 8-way, hand-tied and knotted box spring for their handmade mattresses. Remember, 1/3 of the support of your mattress comes from the box spring.
Is the upholstery material natural or synthetic? Shifman uses cotton for resiliency, comfort, and durability as well as Belgian damask, matelassé fabrics, wool, cashmere, and pashmina.
Karyn, who suffers from frequent back pain, recently purchased Shifman’s Chagall mattress. “I’d been sleeping on a memory foam mattress for several years and was not getting the support my back needed. I would go to bed in pain and wake up the same way. Now I wake up with no pain and feeling great. Some mornings I don’t even want to get up! I absolutely love my Shifman.”
Stop into our Poughkeepsie location and ask Karyn about our two-sided handmade Shifman mattresses. She promises to get out of bed and be there Monday-Thursday and Saturday from 9:30-5:30. Or call 845-778-1500 and ask for Karyn. Sweet dreams!
