Kluft Aireloom King: 7-foot mattress for couples who need space

Kluft Aireloom KingIf you have trouble sleeping harmoniously with the one you love, new furniture might not seem like the most logical solution. But judging by the growing number of specialty beds on the market, it's certainly a popular one. The newest offering from Rancho Cucamonga luxury mattress maker Kluft is the Aireloom King, which promises a measure of peace that is 7 feet long by 7 feet wide. That's a full foot wider and 17% larger in total area than a California king, all the better to distance yourself from that snorer or kicker in your life.

A Kluft spokeswoman said some couples want supersized mattresses simply to help fill their supersized master suites, but others are looking for ways to sleep farther apart without resorting to separate beds. The nonstandard size does commit you to custom pads and sheets, sold by partner companies. And then there is the price.

The Aireloom King starts at $7,000. But think of it this way: Your bed can double as your office. Demand for the Aireloom King is expected to come partly from people who work so much in bed that they need space to spread out papers. Kluft rolls out the new mattress April 1 at Southern California retailers,  including five Sit 'n Sleep stores.
