Last fall — just months after I swore I’d never move again — I had to move to a new apartment (long story). This time around, I painted walls, hung art, installed shelves, and took every step imaginable for a fresh start. So, when the online mattress company Leesa asked if I’d like to try a new mattress, the answer was an obvious yes…
Of all my NYC apartments (and there have been a lot!) this one feels the most like “me.” When you’ve set up close to a dozen spaces in as many years, you get a pretty good sense of what makes you happy. In my case: fully embracing maximalism.
Some things, like my signature wall-of-books, remained the same…
Other things, like the dramatic paint color, were more of an experiment.
But when it comes to a fresh start, you know what’s even more effective than burning candles or lighting sage? A new bed.
Every Leesa mattress is delivered in a compact box. You just pull it out, unroll it, and watch it inflate to regular mattress size.
Six-pound Mia (a connoisseur of comfort) immediately jumped on it and refused to leave. It’s officially her new favorite spot.
Since I’ve kept a lot of the same furniture over the years, it feels especially nice to have a fresh, new bed. And unlike my previous mattress-buying experience — which involved an annoying hour with a pushy mattress salesperson — you can order Leesa mattresses entirely online.
I had the world’s WORST cold when we took these photos, but after sleeping on my Leesa for the past week, I now feel more rested than ever. Every mattress has a layer of comfy memory foam, as well as a layer of foam that’s specially designed to keep you cool, which makes for an amazing night’s sleep.
Leesa gives you 100 nights to try out the mattress, and shipping is always free. Plus, for every ten mattresses sold, they’ll donate one to a shelter. My comfy new bed has been a game-changer, and I’d definitely recommend it.
