Wide Selection of Base Sets

Buying a Wow-Worthy Wide Selection of Base Sets

Human beings have been sleeping on beds for many centuries. One must rely on archaeological finds, surviving ancient relics and writings to begin to construct some sort of timeline for the history of bed sets. As is the case in attempting to establish such origins, modern humankind tends to turn to ancient civilisations that were known to keep records – the ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Romans.

Famous Ancient Royal Bed

As a pharaoh, Tutankhamun didn’t have to buy his famous golden bed. This ancient marvel has been one of the premier displays in the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo, but as from late 2022, it’ll be housed in the newly constructed Grand Egyptian Museum, located near the Great Pyramids.

Upholstered base sets, as we know them today at Ericssons Mattress & Pine, were to follow very much later. Previously, a base or bed, such as King Tut’s iconic sleep solution, was virtually the same thing – a raised platform, with or without a mattress or sleeping pad, which provided additional comfort, while elevating the sleeper off the floor.

Elevated Setup

An elevated, stable surface setup upon which to sleep has several advantages not offered by simply putting a mattress down on the floor. By elevating sleeper/s, there’s far less likelihood of the bed’s occupant being assailed by crawling insects and pests. Elevation also improves airflow around and beneath the base, thus keeping sets fresh and free from moisture build-up and the formation of bacteria and mould.

All Working Together

The most basic bed base system may consist of a solid platform, a system of slats or a box version. However, modern sets consist of both the base and a mattress, upholstered in the same fabric, which visually represents a unit. These components are designed to work together to support the bed set’s occupants optimally and in greater comfort than would otherwise be the case if bought separately and not as a set.

By one unit complementing its partner’s function, the lifetime of the most costly component – the mattress – is also improved and enhanced – likewise your comfort levels.  Additionally, the set’s base supports its mattress, which is designed to support the user/sleeper – you, your family member/s and your guests who sleepover in your home.

You don’t need a king’s ransom or pharaoh’s fortune to buy a wow-worthy base set from Ericssons. Our friendly, professional consultants are on hand to help you select the set that best suits your support needs, comfort and budget. Our focus on customer service excellence cannot be bought; it’s a complimentary part of the standard service level at Ericssons. Chat with us if you want to buy quality mattresses.
