Breakfast in Bed

Last week, I was invited to attend a Breakfast at Tempur-Pedic International’s new flagship retail store that opened recently in Natick Mall.  They were going to celebrate the opening with a breakfast spread and cameo by Chef Barbara Lynch.

Barbara Lynch???  Say no more.

I arrived at the store and went on a little tour.  I’m in the market for a new mattress, but I’ve always been a big fan of pillowtop mattresses.  Before now, my only experience with tempur material is the Bob-O-Pedic mattress on our couch bed, which I hear is quite comfortable but I have a sneaking suspicion you can’t really compare it to a) a legit mattress, and b) the name brand who patented the material in the first place (or was that Nasa?).  Anyway, I’ve never actually tried out a Tempur-Pedic for myself, so this presented the perfect opportunity to do so.

Upon walking in, I was greeted with this gigantic bed (that I couldn’t help thinking would look AH-MAZING in our bedroom….KnightlyBoyfriend, get on that for me, mmmkay?).

Since it was 9am, there were few things I felt like doing other than curling up into that glorious setup and going back to sleep.

I’m not a morning person.

I really liked the setup of the store (again, I don’t know if they’re all set up like this because I’ve never been in a Tempur-Pedic store).  It was perfect for a novice like me who has absolutely no idea what kind of mattress she wants. 

It started with a wall of memory foam.

Other than presenting the arguments for a Tempur-Pedic mattress over a regular mattress, it allows you to feel the varying degrees of support offered by the different lines.  I like to feel as though I’m sleeping on a cloud, so it’s no surprise that the Cloud line appealed the most to my achy back.

Then it came time to test out the mattresses.  The beds were organized by line and by degree of support.  My two favorites were the Tempur Weightless Supreme, a line of Tempur-Pedic mattresses made for those who like the feel of an innerspring mattress and a medium level of support,

and the Tempur Cloud line, which is, well, cloud-like.  Super soft, just how I like it.

These were my two faves:

The prices are…well, let’s just say Sallie Mae would come after my kneecaps with a bat if I made an  impulse buy.

At the end of the trek through the store, there’s a pillow bar that has all the Tempur-Pedic pillows on display for customers to feel and test out.

The rest of the store has pretty luxurious bedroom accessories, like 600-count Egyptian cotton sheets and Nest fragrance products (which, if you’ve never tried them, are THE BEST – they infuse your entire home with subtle but really lovely scents).

This is the best scent by Nest – Bamboo.  Get you some.

Of course, the best part was breakfast.  The lox had a nice, buttery texture and just enough salt to season, but not enough to overpower the flavor of the fish.  The bagels were crusty on the outside and fluffy on the inside, the scones were buttery, and the cream cheeses were so delicious I could have eaten them with a spoon.  It wasn’t anything particularly new or fancy, but it was well executed.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get a photo with Babs (Barbara Lynch…you know, we’re on a first name basis like that), but it was not a bad way to start a Tuesday morning.
