Happy Interior Blog Recommends: Smood

December 17, 2014 2


Today’s blog post comes with a few excuses and apologies as a preface. First of all, apology for inviting you unintentionally into my messy bed (ooops), excuse me for the chaos and ignore the fact that I have no sheet on my mattress. It all has a meaning. A good one. A very good one. Because the mattress is the leading cast today. Let me introduce you to Smood, my latest revelation to enhance my (too short) sleep hours!

To be honest with you guys: I have never paid attention to my mattress. Frankly, I bought my old one when I moved into my apartment seven years ago and all I did was flip it from one side to the other after a few years in use. So when I was approached by the Home24 team announcing the introduction of a brand new mattress called ‘Smood’, my passion level was lukewarm. A mattress? What’s so special about a mattress? It was not until I watched their fun promotional video (see it below) that my interest was piqued. I wanted to know more!

I will spare you the adventurous story of receiving a huge mattress by mail, but once it was here and up on my bed, a new love story has unfolded. No worries though, this bed story is not risqué at all! By now, I’ve slept for two weeks on my new Smood mattress and the effect is amazing – believe me or not, I am not saying this because I got the mattress for a test! If it was terrible I would have not mentioned it on my blog at all. But this pretty thing called Smood is doing me good!

The mattress has a foam and gel body and a removable and washable cover and is higher than other mattresses – at least here in Germany. No need to mention that I’ve slept really well on Smood. But it also keeps me in bed on weekends. Spending late mornings in bed with a nice book (lately that is ‘In Detail’ by Swedish stylist Hans Blomquist) is a sort of ritual during rainy winter weekends for me.

What’s the essence of today’s story? Maybe just a little reminder that we should think about our mattress a bit more and put it in focus. After all it’s where we lay our tired bodies for a good night’s sleep. I won’t give away my Smood anymore. No, no, no! It’s here to stay!

      Findest Du echt?? Wow, das freut mich, wenn es von Dir kommt!! Ich war ja am Hadern und Zweifeln, ich fand das Licht schwierig, dann war ich mir nicht sicher, ob das nicht zu chaotisch ist usw. But who cares:-)

    Hi Igor,

    wie schläft es sich inzwischen auf der Smood? Besser als auf der alten Matratze? Würdest Du sie weiterhn empfehlen?

    Liebe Grüsse

      Ja Sabine, ich schlafe top auf der Smood Matratze. Ich kann sie guten Gewissens empfehlen! Das einzige was man bedenken muss, die Matratze ist sehr hoch, d.h. nicht alle alten Spannleintücher könnten passen:-) Aber das ist ja ein geringes Übel!
