$33,000 mattress: a price you might have to sleep on

In their book, You Staying Young,Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen write, "there are four things in life you should overpay for," and that one of those things is a good mattress.

Would $33,000 be over paying?

Earl Kluft, chief executive of California-based luxury mattress manufacturer E.S. Kluft may not think so. In fact, the hand-tufted king-sized "Palais Royale" mattress and box spring set sport an eye-popping $33,000 price tag and are not even the top of the line. Next year, the company will roll out the "Sublime" model marked at $44,000 complete with a layer of horsehair.

On the Kluft website, the company proclaims that its mattresses are "entirely hand-made ... and include all the amenities of the best English and Scandinavian beds, yet surpass them in sophistication of design and materials. Because each one is painstakingly handcrafted by our bedding artisans to the most exacting standards required by the 20 year warranty."
