Learn about what really goes into a bed built for the future
What does the idea of a ‘futuristic bed’ mean to you? Is it some kind of Star Trek contraption? Or is it something that’s been designed to suit a modern lifestyle? To us, a futuristic bed is one that uses technology in clever ways, to make sleep easier and more comfortable, while making the bedroom – and the bed – a pleasant and useful place to be. These are the things that we think make a bed futuristic…
We’re not talking about flashing lights or fairy lights, here. A cool, grown-up bed has lights in a way that adds style and substance. A Mode Bed, for example, uses LED under-bed lighting. If you need to get up in the middle of the night, but don’t want to jolt yourself (or your partner) into full wakefulness with the lamp, the soft lighting at ground level will safely get you where you need to go. There’s a 30-minute timer, too, so you can get back under the covers without racing back from the bathroom. And you can turn the lights on and off using the Mode App, so you have complete control.
All that use of your phone to control your bed, you’d think the bed would have USB charging ports included, wouldn’t you? Any smart bed worth looking at certainly will, and the Mode bed is no exception. Integrated dual USB ports are installed on both sides of the bed, so there’s no arguing about who gets to plug in their phone, kindle, sunrise lamp, or anything else.
The whole point of a smart bed, or a futuristic bed, is to get technology to integrate with comfort – it wouldn’t matter how clever and high-tech a bed is, if it doesn’t feel comfortable or luxurious. If you’re going to spend all night, every night in a bed, it needs to work with a good mattress too. Mode Mattress is cleverly designed to move along with a smart bed, contouring to your body and giving you complete comfort no matter what position you choose. Plus the open-celled memory foam is super breathable, helping to keep you cool and provide the best support for your body.
