Eight Sleep's New Mattress is a Game Changer for Hot Sleepers

Once upon a time, we picked out mattresses in a maybe hour-long visit to a mattress store. Now, with the advent of beds-in-a-box and direct-to-consumer, online-first companies, where you rest your head at night feels like more of a a lifestyle choice. Parachute now sells mattresses that vibe with their all-natural, California aesthetic. Casper, which started with the one perfect mattress model, has expanded their line to include sheets and pillows and even sells a lamp that touts better sleep. Eight Sleep, an NYC-based start-up, takes the overall sleep wellness model even further. Billing itself as a “sleep technology” company rather than just another mattress destination, it feels a bit like if Nike tried to get in on the bed game. This isn’t just about a better night’s sleep, it’s about becoming a better sleeper and, by extension, better at whatever you want to be.

Named as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies of 2018, Eight Sleep’s first Smart Mattress was also a TIME top invention of 2018—and was featured on our very own list of the best mattresses. Their latest product takes that smart technology and adds a truly game-changing feature for hot sleepers. Called the Pod, it’s more than a mattress; it’s a full system that combines temperature regulation, biometric tracking, sleep coaching, and smart home connectivity designed to give users their ideal eight hours of sleep a night plus much more.

The Best Sound Machines — The Best List

Loud neighbors, city noises, snoring partners — sleep is precious, and all of these things can disrupt it. Some of you may be deep sleepers who regularly sleep through alarms, while the rest of us are jolted awake by alarm clocks going off in other rooms (and apartments—looking at you, upstairs neighbor). One solution is a sound machine that will mask unwanted, annoying noises with gentle nature sounds or white noise.

These are great for apartment and city living, but also for infants who can’t stay asleep, people who need help focusing at work, night shift workers who need to sleep while everyone else is awake, and even tinnitus sufferers who need relief from the ringing in their ears. Whether you’re looking to spend a little or splurge, here are ten of our favorite options on the market.

I Tried Brooklinen's Cashmere Sheets—Now I Know What It's Like to Be the Star in a Nancy Meyers Movie

As someone who practices (what some might call) extreme prioritization of physical comfort, my curiosity was piqued when I spotted an email from Brooklinen announcing their new heathered cashmere sheets. For me, cashmere sheets conjure up images of fancy people lounging in five-star hotels or Nancy Meyer movies… definitely not something in the realm of my day-to-day reality. But I was already familiar with Brooklinen, the popular direct-to-consumer bedding brand that raised funds on Kickstarter back in 2014 (and you may have seen their excellent marketing featuring adorable furry friends). I’ve been a fan since purchasing their Classic Percale sheets a couple years ago.

Schoolhouse Electric is Having a Rare Sale–Grab Our Faves Before They're Gone

With a goal of creating “the next generation of heirlooms,” Schoolhouse Electric is one of our favorite contemporary home brands—beyond lighting, the company sells hardware, clocks, and other purposeful home goods. Products are manufactured and designed at a factory in Portland with a firm focus on quality, while three stores in Portland, NYC, and Pittsburgh bring the collections directly to consumers. That means the prices tend to reflect the craftsmanship and design behind each piece. And while we believe in investing, when possible, in high-caliber products, that doesn’t preclude us from also getting excited when the prices lower.

Schoolhouse rarely has sales, especially compared to other home retailers, so their current Digital Dock Sale has us excited. We rounded up our favorite sale items, from light fixtures to kitchen accessories, but if you want to see more go ahead and check out the entire sale here.

As a quick visit to their offices will tell you, they know how to uncover some true hidden gems.

To spark some inspiration, we asked Etsy employees what their very favorite buys under $25 are. The results range from accessories to home decor, but all are guaranteed to add some playfulness to the everyday.
