ABSTRACT
The article reports on the gold standard of Italian bedding producer Magniflex for its high-end mattress marketplace in New York. The gold mattress idea was inspired by the concept of Marco Magni, global sales director and a member of the founding Magni family, of a bed fashioned from 22-karat gold fibers. The queen-sized sleep set of the Magniflex gold matress retails at $25,000 while the gold-fiber pillow retails for $1,000.
