Duxiana launches new collection
What’s under your mattress? The new DUX 818 luxury bed includes a built-in safety compartment that elevates the practice of hiding money under your mattress, and is one of four new models launched by the 85-year-old Swedish company. Along with Duxiana’s traditional materials such as slow-growing Swedish pine, supple latex, and fine cotton ticking, the DUX 818 ($6,185 - $11,970) includes adjustable lumbar support on each side of the bed and the hidden safety compartment created to hold valuables or a small fire extinguisher (I had a slew of puns ready to go for activities that can ignite your mattress, in case you’re wondering).
Head to Duxiana’s River North location at 619 State St., 312-475-0077, to check out the new line in person.
