Beauty Sleep

Getting plenty of rest is an essential component to overall physical and emotional well-being. From soft bamboo sheets to a mattress devoid of nontoxic materials, here are 10 items we're eyeing for a dreamy, sanctuary-like bedroom.

Rest and Relaxation
Made entirely of upcycled beechwood in an FSC-certified facility in Los Angeles, the Wood Slatted Bench is ideal draped with a throw blanket at the foot of the bed.

Nap Zone
Transform the bedroom with the multifunctional Fez Upholstered Room Divider made of tropical hardwood and 100 percent woven cotton upholstery.

Ambient Light
Brooklyn-based fragrance maven Chrissy Fichtl, founder of Apotheke, concocted the hand-poured, soy-wax blend Black Iris Oak Candle with notes of black pepper, cinnamon leaf, iris and musk.

Lights Out
Conceived by owner Fiona Stewart and her partner Justin Dubois of Slip, the hypoallergenic Slip Silk Pillowcase is made of the brand's signature pure silk, slipsilk.

Fresh Take
Infuse soothing hints of herbs and aromatherapy with Vitruvi's portable Move Essential Oil Diffuser.

Soft Touch
Echoing the art of basket weaving, the Manzanita Organic Handstitched Shams are crafted in India with 100 percent organic cotton.

Bed Time
Made in a family-owned factory in Portugal, the Percale Pillowcase Set in Moss is comprised of long-staple Egyptian cotton.

Sleep On It

Make The Bed
The Organic Linen Duvet Cover in Indigo comes with two shams and is loomed in France with 100 percent GOTS-certified organic linen and Corozo nut buttons sustainably procured from Tagua trees in Central and South America.

Rest Assured
Cozy Earth's Bamboo Sheet Set is designed with ultra-soft, breathable and moisture-wicking viscose from bamboo fabric; each set includes one flat sheet, one fitted sheet and two pillowcases.

Rethinking The Mattress with Industry Expert, Barry A. Cik
"You sleep on a mattress for six to eight hours every day, which is a huge percentage of your life," says Barry A. Cik, a board-certified environmental engineer and technical director of Ohio-based company, Naturepedic Organic Mattresses & Bedding. "So, if there is any product in your home that needs to focus on wellness, it’s your bed and mattress. You want healthy sleep experiences. You don’t want to be sleeping on toxic or questionable chemicals."

Cik's Checklist:

• Stay Aware. Avoiding getting hot and sweaty is a priority, and the way to achieve this is to avoid petroleum-based materials in the mattress. Then, an equal priority is to get the firmness and feel that you are most comfortable with. This is done by adding a zipper to the side of the mattress that allows for the top to be opened, and then allows for changing the firmness of the components. The regular Naturepedic EOS provides soft, medium and firm latex options, and plush or firm encased coil options. You have six different firmness options, from very soft to very firm.

• Steer Clear of Chemicals. Avoid polyurethane foam, flame-retardant chemicals or barriers (which are all full of chemicals), formaldehyde, pesticides, glues/adhesives, GMOs, vinyl, perfluorinated compounds. For baby and kids products—since you don’t generally know if they may be or may become allergic to latex—it’s best to avoid mattresses filled with latex. This includes organic latex, since being organic does not in any way reduce the allergenic issues.
