White Lotus Home bedecks abodes with a variety of natural and organic furnishings and accessories handmade in the United States. Each organic mattress—available in standard and custom sizes—buoys patrons atop 8–10 layers of U.S.-grown cotton, with most mattresses lasting 5–15 years, depending on how often they are used as settings for moon-landing reenactments. The cotton and wool mattress wraps its core of organically grown, harvested, and processed cotton with New Zealand virgin lamb's wool ($254 for a zabuton; $2,133 for a king-size mattress), which serves to repel dust mites while helping to regulate the body temperatures of its dozing owners. The gentle weave of a pure organic cotton blanket ($82 for a throw) banishes shivers, and handmade sets of organic cotton sateen sheets ($111 for a crib, $349 for a king) grace mattresses with a gentle embrace. Accessorize new linen ensembles without sewing diamonds into pillowcases by enlisting natural furniture such as solid-wood nightstands ($393 for the Pac Rim Classic).
An affordable and monumental selection of plush beds, sturdy end tables, and stylish home accessories mingle good-naturedly in Ashley Furniture’s wondrous warehouse. Pick up a Matrix accent chair ($219) in a bevy of academic hues, such as scarlet, black, and chocolate brown, then use it to accent your next book club meeting’s discussion of Lego Star Wars. A Cubit ottoman set ($198) comes paired for two potential sets of weary feet. Augment somnolence with mattress sets from household brands such as ComforPedic and Simmons.
