Our family runs a bed store, and what we would give to sell a mattress at this price. But, we guess it is out of our price range! It does indicate what some people value good sleep at. Do you think that this is a special mattress? Maybe, it is a throwback, like some of the soft drinks lately. And it is a publicity stunt.
There is no reason to pay this much money for a mattress of this type, unless perhaps your royalty in England. Just a note, there are a lot of great mattresses out there that will not cost you the price of a house in the mid west!
Spring mattresses generally will cost between a $1000 and $2000 for better queen size mattresses. Spring beds will last 7 to 10 years. Then repeat the process.
Memory foam beds will cost more for the high end brands, but there are some very good brands that will actually cost you less than a good spring bed. The lifespan of foam is 10 to 20 years, with some wear expected in the topper foam.
Latex beds are slightly more than memory foam, but it seems they will last longer, so value goes to latex in the foam bed segment.
Air chambered beds run from about $700 to $4000 depending on the construction. A good average would be between $1500 to $2000. These are competitive with spring beds in price, but they will last at least twice as long, making them a very good value. In fact they will last as long or longer than that $175k bed, with much less "maintenance".

The point is, if you want to invest in sleep, and don't own a country, choose a great mattress. Consider all types. Nothing is as sad as the customers we see that say they hate their bed, but will only look at the same bed again. You may, or may not like the feel of these new beds, but consider a test drive to make sure.
The above story gave us a good chuckle, and we just wanted to share it with you...
