If you think a good night’s sleep these days is worth its weight in gold, have I got a tidbit for you.

Italian mattress maker, Magniflex, is launching a new line made out of precious metals (gold and platinum), and if you’ve got a cool $24 thousand lying around, you can pick one up for your next slumber party.

The five-zoned memory foam core is thermo-regulating, anti-bacterial and odor proof and is covered with a sheath of 22-carat gold yarn. The mattress maker says the physical properties of gold act as a barrier to those unwanted dust-mite types. And if you want an even glitzier slumber, you can add on gold pillows for $1,000 each.


Not to leave anyone out of the golden opportunity, Magniflex makes their gold mattress line for pets too. Aside from the obvious glam factor, the gold is also a proven flea deterrent.

Eureka! Form AND function.

Prices range from $1,000 – $3,000 (or just a few year’s worth of Kibbles and Bits).

Diamond-encrusted collars, gourmet food and extravagant Halloween costumes are by now familiar trademarks of our nation’s pet-obsessed. For those of you who can’t wait to paint Muffy’s toenails to match her new little doggy cocktail dress, the Jewelry Insider has discovered the perfect lounging accoutrement: a golden pet mattress. The Louis Vuitton pet carrier is so over, people.

According to The New York Times, Italian company, Magniflex, created the line after a wealthy Russian client requested a gold mattress for her Maltese. Jealous? Fido isn’t the only one who can get in on the act. If you have $30,000 lying around, you too can sleep on a bed of bling. Or take it down a notch like Marco Magni, son of Magniflex’s founder, who snoozes on the queen-size, silver model for only $4,000. What an under-achievor.

The doggie beds are made with a cover woven with 22-karat gold thread and are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. And aside from the obvious glam factor, the gold is also a proven flea deterrent. Eureka! Form AND function.

Prices range from $1,000 – $3,000. Or, in other words, a few year’s worth of Kibbles and Bits.
