Saatva recently partnered with The Kaleidoscope Project Designer Showhouse, an event that celebrates diversity and inclusion in the interior design industry. As the exclusive mattress and pillow partner, Saatva provided the event’s first showhouse with made-to-order Classic Innerspring Mattresses, Zenhaven Latex Mattresses, Mattress Foundations and Down Alternative Pillows—creating a curated sleep experience that mirrors the extraordinary bedroom concepts presented by the 23 BIPOC designers who have fully reimagined the historic Cornell Inn in Lenox, Massachusetts.
Inspired by the showhouse's three central design themes of Rest, Reflection & Rejuvenation, Saatva provided mattresses and sleep products that correspond to each unique bedroom design. Adding unparalleled comfort and quality, these products will live on in perpetuity as part of the hotel's bedroom furnishings collection.
Inside The Featured Saatva Products
Zenhaven, Saatva's 100% natural Talalay latex mattress, was chosen for the six larger rooms in the Main House and Carriage House. The dual-sided, premium latex mattress is handcrafted with the highest quality natural and nontoxic materials to provide healthier, better quality sleep. Zenhaven's 5-zone Talalay latex gives enhanced lower back support and pressure-point relief where it is most needed. The superbly breathable organic cotton, natural latex, and New Zealand wool layers naturally regulate body temperature. Its 100% natural latex is hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, resistant to dust mites and mold, and certified to be free of harmful chemicals.
Saatva's Classic Innerspring mattresses in the Luxury Firm comfort option are featured in the other 12 bedrooms. The award-winning, dual-coil mattress blends the durability and responsive feel of an innerspring with the cushioned comfort of eco-friendly foams and a plush Euro pillow top. The pillow top gives contouring support for cushioned comfort and pressure relief where it matters most. Chiropractor-approved, the Saatva Classic provides optimal spine support and alignment through patented spinal zone technology and CertiPUR-US certified memory foam to reduce lower back pressure.
All of the mattresses have been paired with handcrafted foundations that are designed to be stronger and quieter than the traditional box spring, offering a noiseless, restorative sleep environment for Cornell Inn guests.
Saatva's Down Alternative Pillow, a 100% hypoallergenic pillow covered in organic cotton, completes the sleep experience for all bedrooms. These soft and breathable pillows are specifically designed to mimic the lofty feel of traditional down pillows with a custom down alternative blend that offers both comfort and durability.
"Saatva is proud to partner with the Kaleidoscope Project and this extraordinary group of designers, who have reimagined the historic Cornell Inn and positioned it for a vibrant new future," says Ron Rudzin, CEO of Saatva. "In addition to supporting the mission of the project, we are especially pleased that their unique room designs, along with our handcrafted luxury mattresses, will remain in place so that Inn guests can enjoy a quality sleep experience."
