I guess this is an artifact from the Reagan years of conspicuous consumption and trickle-down economics.http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/26/realestate/26habi.html?_r=...He and Ms. Powers, who has a role in the new musical “Happiness” at the Mitzi Newhouse Theater at Lincoln Center, went to Macy’s, where they tested mattresses for two hours but could not agree on a model.“I picked out a perfectly fine mattress,” he said.But the indefatigable Ms. Powers was not satisfied: “I said to the salesman, ‘Have you shown us everything you have to offer?’ ” Finally, he showed them top-of-the-line Aireloom mattresses (which range in price from $6,000 to $18,000) and they bought a king-size bed that barely fits into their bedroom.“It’s all natural wool and cotton. It’s what the Reagans slept on,” she said. “It’s what Brad and Jennifer slept on — or maybe Brad and Angelina.”Mr. Cavenaugh is still reeling from sticker shock. “It’s the most expensive thing in the apartment,” he said. “I’ll sleep well when we are finished paying for it.” </snip>intercst
