Most beds serve the same purpose: being a comfortable place to sleep at night. But for some, a simple, high-quality bed isn’t enough.
Some of the most expensive beds in the world are the same price as a car—or even a house. The world’s fanciest beds include features such as surround sound systems, televisions, refrigerators, and more.
While a six or seven-figure bed isn’t at all necessary, it’s always fun to have a look at cool beds with unique craftsmanship and compare their features with your own.
Here’s our list of the 10 most expensive beds in the world.
10. Sphere Bed – $50,000
Designed by Karim Rashid, the Sphere Bed has a unique and retro design. The canopy frame wraps around the entire mattress, with a tall headboard, footboard, and an enclosed top. The frame has a bright red and durable upholstery to make for the coolest focal point of any bedroom.
The Sphere Bed features a 32-inch TV, cup holders, mirrors, LED lights, surround sounds speakers, and an adjustable bed frame. This bed is truly for people who enjoy spending lots of time in bed.
9. The Monarch Vi-Spring Bed – $50,000
Vi-Spring offers some of the most luxurious beds in the world. Unsurprisingly, the mattress itself contains a luxurious blend of cashmere, lambswool, and mohair. The support unit contains upwards of 3000 stainless steel coils.
The bed frame is made from environmentally-friendly hollow bamboo. Bamboo is naturally moisture-wicking, hypoallergenic, and antibacterial. Bamboo also improves airflow throughout the bed—a feature important to improving your sleep quality.
8. Starry Night Sleep Technology Bed – $50,000
The Starry Night Sleep Technology Bed is a high-tech mattress offered at a premium price.
The Starry Night Sleep Technology Bed features a surround sound stereo and video projector you can use to display stars across your room or turn your bedroom into a movie theater—hence the name. The bed also includes a phone docking station for charging so you’re never too far from your devices.
The mattress itself is unique, as well. The bed is split down the middle so you and your partner can customize either side of the bed. It features anti-snore technology, temperature control, and a sleep diagnostic center to monitor your movements and breathing patterns.
7. Cosmovoide Bed – $60,000
The egg-like Cosmovide Bed has a futuristic look. The entirety of this large frame is a mattress, with plenty of cushioning and a soft knit cover.
The bed comes with a built-in phone, DVD player, a TV set, and surround sound audio. Not only that, but the top of the frame has colored LED lighting for late nights and early mornings.
Compared to beds and technology nowadays, the Cosmovide Bed is quite retro—what with a built-in cable phone and a DVD player—but this bed is luxurious nonetheless.
6. Majesty Vi-Spring Bed – $84,400
The Majesty Vi-Spring Bed has a variety of extra features compared to the Monarch.
At almost double the price of the Monarch, the Majesty Bed is handcrafted by its designer, Jab Anstoetz, and contains more than 6000 calico-pocketed springs for perfect weight distribution. The mattress contains some of the softest materials in the world: British fleece wool, Shetland wool silk, cashmere, and European horsetail.
One of the biggest reasons the Majesty Bed costs nearly $85,000 is the real silver and gold stitched into the bed.
5. The Vividus – $140,000
Handmade in north Sweden, the Vividus bed contains horsetail hair, long-fiber cotton, flax, pine, wool, and a pocketed coil support system. The mattress, its box spring, and its pillow top come in a variety of colors and styles.
Buying the Vividus is no straightforward task. Shoppers must call Hästens’ VIP phone number and book a private test-sleep appointment. After that, it takes roughly 45 days for Hästens to hand-craft your bed and send it your way.
However, for this high price, Hästens claims the Vividus bed lasts over 45 years.
4. Quantum Sleeper Bed – $160,000
If you’re preparing for a disaster or simply want to live out of your bed, take a look at the Quantum Sleeper Bed. The water-tight bed closes in on itself and is built to protect you against natural disasters, intruders, and weapons.
The mattress is all-inclusive and has a fridge, microwave, TV, toilet system, backup power unit, emergency communicator, rebreather, and a filtered ventilation system. You can also lock the bed for extra safety measures.
3. Jado Steel Style Gold Bed – $676,500
The Jago Steel Style Gold Bed was built to stand out.
The bed frame is very flashy, being almost entirely built from solid gold and Swarovski crystals. The frame includes Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV, a DVD player, a gaming system, and a surround sound system. This bed is less about sleeping and more about having some fun.
2. Magnetic Floating Bed – $1,600,000
One of the most unique beds in the world is the Magnetic Floating Bed, designed by architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars. The bed feels like you’re floating on a cloud, and for its ridiculously high price point, we expect nothing less.
The bed manages to hover off the ground thanks to the 1500 pounds of magnets beneath it. For safety reasons and to prevent the bed from floating away, the bed is secured to the walls with durable cords.
1. Baldacchino Supreme Bed – $6,300,000
Designed by Stuart Hughes—a man famous for designing the world’s most expensive items, including yachts, cars, and electronics—the Baldacchino Supreme Bed is a masterpiece. Only two of these luxurious beds exist in the world, making it not only the most expensive bed in the world but also the rarest.
The bed is hand-built by Italian furniture makers, the frame is made from ash, cherry, and chestnut woods and has intricate carvings. The bed’s classy canopy is made from almost 250 pounds of 24-carat gold and adorns Italian silk and cotton curtains. The headboard is custom-built and features diamonds—or other stones of the buyer’s choice.

For a luxury bed at a reasonable cost, take a look at the soft AS5 paired with the high-tech Adjustable Bed+ by Amerisleep.
The AS5 contains four layers of high-quality foam and a plush and cooling mattress cover. Sleeping on the AS5 is comparable to sleeping on a cloud in the comfort of your home.
The AS5 features plant-based Bio-Pur®, an eco-friendly memory foam built to be cool and springy all night long. It’s more durable than regular memory foam, ensuring your bed lasts as long as possible.
Unlike most other soft beds—which can sometimes cause you to feel stuck and unable to move—the Amerisleep AS5 contains a layer known as Active Flex. This layer adds extra cushioning, support, and bounciness to the AS5.
The AS5 has targeted pressure-relief technology known as HIVE®. With HIVE®, you get extra support around your head, back, and legs, but extra cushioning around your shoulders and hips. This allows for excellent weight distribution and comfort.

The Adjustable Bed+ features high-tech upgrades including a full-body massage feature, head and foot articulation, customizable presets, and an app for your phone. The Adjustable Bed+ also has four USB ports so you can keep your devices nearby and fully charged.
The adjustable frame has Wallhugger® engineering. Most adjustable beds move you up and away from your nightstand and headboard, but the Adjustable Bed+’s Wallhugger® feature causes the bed to shift backward when elevating to keep your body in line with your nightstand.
What’s the biggest bed in the world?
The biggest bed size available for purchase is the Alaskan King, which is 9 feet wide by 9 feet long. This bed can easily fit four or five people comfortably, but you’ll have to find this bed at specialty retailers or have it custom-built.
However, the biggest bed on record is 54 feet wide by 87 feet long. The creator of this bed designed the bed in an attempt to reach a world record, and it is nearly the size of a basketball court, so it’s not realistic for actual use.
What’s the most expensive pillow in the world?
The most expensive pillow in the world is the Tailormade Pillow designed by neck specialist Thijs van der Hilst. Costing roughly $58,000, the pillow is fully customized to you.
After taking a 3D scan of your head and neck, designers 3D print the pillow with an ergonomic shape. The pillow is made from Dutch memory foam and you have the option between a Tencel™ cover or a cover made from Mulberry silk, Egyptian cotton, and 24-carat gold. The luxury cover’s zipped is studded with four diamonds and a 22.5-carat sapphire.
What mattresses do 5-star hotels use?
While 5-star hotels use luxurious beds, they’re nothing near beds costing five, six, or even seven figures. Hotels buy hundreds of beds, so the beds have to be high-quality, but cost-effective.
What beds do celebrities buy?
The beds that famous individuals purchase varies from person to person, but luxury mattress brands include the likes of Hästens and Hypnos.
Lots of the time, celebrities have beds custom-made and handcrafted for them. Some celebrities even receive mattresses for free due to their high-priority status.
Are expensive beds better?
No, you can find high-quality beds within the $500 to $2000 range. Beds pricier than this usually include high-quality materials and functions—such as unique shapes and sizes, rare fabrics, and more—but they won’t necessarily be the best mattresses for your sleep.
At the same time, overly cheap beds (less than $500 for a queen) break down quickly, provide little support, and are made from low-quality materials.
For most people, it’s best to shop for a mattress within the average price range—$500 to $2000, depending on the size of bed you choose.
Looking at the most expensive beds in the world is fun, but you don’t need an expensive mattress to sleep comfortably. Lots of cheaper beds achieve the same levels of comfort as luxury beds. They simply don’t have luxurious features and materials like built-in TVs and gold stitching, but those aren’t necessary for good sleep.
