A big bed has sweet dreams and more and more followers. 140 or 160 cm wide, here is our selection of large beds ...
As a companion of everyday life, a big bed we cradle, envelop us and, in the morning, often hold us back. In a more and more hectic pace of life, a double bed is also a safe haven: directly linked to quality of sleepit is important for health. Moreover, 84% of French people think that the bedding has a positive impact on the quality of life (APL study, 2008). To have a good influence on our everyday life, it is necessary above all that our bed adapts to it.
Because for 30 years, the French have taken centimeters: 11 for men and 8 for women. A few pounds too ... As a result, the sale of 140x200 beds continues to decline in favor of larger bedding (160x200 cm). It has even been multiplied by 3 in 10 years (IPEA, 2008). And the very large beds 180 x 200 cm or even 200 x 200 cm also gain ground.
Aside from adapting to our physique, these large beds also allow couples to have a better comfort. Everyone has his space, the space he needs to turn forty times in the night (on average, according to an APL 2008 survey) and the freedom to have an activity. Our large bed is not only used to sleep ... It is solicited for reading and work (50%), making love (47%), relaxing during the day (43%) or for leisure (TV, music and computer, 40%) according to figures from an Ipsos poll, 2004.
More surprising, the bed is also a place of conviviality. It welcomes children, who are 15% to join their parents in their big bed to sleep but especially pets. Dogs or cats, are thus 23% to interfere in the bed of their masters (APL, 2008)! Space of rest, of sleep or else, the big bed is a place where we like to meet.
Bedroom, itself, is the third favorite room in French housing (TNS Sofres, 2008). And for a third of them (27%, survey Ipsos 2005), it's even the place that makes them the most fantasize to make love ... And for a romantic night too?
