World’s most expensive mattress offered to superyacht owners
The world’s most expensive mattress, The Auguste, is now available to superyacht owners around the globe.
Christophe Cotte, an artisan and master craftsman at CC Design, says he has revolutionised the luxury mattress industry by creating the new $175,000 (€159,000) mattress.
It requires 39 skilled artisans, including master upholsterers with decades of experience, to follow 100 steps over 300 hours.
Cotte describes The Auguste as “the world’s most luxurious bed” and says the mattress is in massive demand, with many rich and famous celebrity clients already choosing to have one onboard their superyachts.
“When yacht enthusiasts have paid over $250 million for a superyacht, it is understandable they would want to get the very best night’s sleep,” he says.
“The Auguste features the finest Pierre Frey materials to redefine the concept of sleep within the world of mattresses. Infusing luxury and innovation, premium textiles are sourced from Europe and France to craft mattresses that elevate sleep to an art form.
“The materials, chosen for both comfort and aesthetic appeal, are skilfully woven into the mattress fabric, seamlessly blending support and elegance.”
The mattress is sewn, stuffed, and quilted by hand and claims a thickness of 80cm, making it one of the thickest mattresses in the world and offers a 25-year guarantee.
It features a unique sprung base and combines layers of premium natural materials such as wool, horsehair, and Air Spring pocket springs designed to offer optimal support. Materials including Arles merino wool, royal alpaca, and silk are also used in the support mattress and mattress topper for comfort and body temperature regulation.
And, for a personal touch, owners can have their initials embroidered on the sides, creating a bespoke piece for their superyacht.
CC Design is based in Antibes, France, and has specialised in luxurious interior products such as bedding, slippers and bespoke hangers for luxury yachts and homes for 19 years.
CC Design also produces what it believes to be the world’s most expensive and luxurious duvet.
