You have to admit, in that lived-in galaxy far far away, there are a lot of household items that you just wonder how they lived without! From Blue Milk to Green Milk, or running in to Tosche Station for some power converters. There are a lot of purchases that you make in your galaxy that you assume Luke Skywalker and company would have liked to have made in theirs. Here at Mattress Direct, we got to talking about what mattresses and sleep products your favorite Star Wars characters would use in their every day life. Let us know if you agree in the comments! Because even in a galaxy far far away, Sleep Rules. #sleeprules
Growing up on a desert planet, Luke would have been happy to just get off of the sand. We're pretty confident Episode IV Luke is on a pretty basic pillow top, maybe something like the iDirect Stratus. But, after blowing up the FIRST death star, there's a good chance he got an upgrade. What's the nicest mattress you could pick out on the ice planet of Hoth? We think Luke would end up with a Campbell Mattress, as he is smart with his credits, and appreciates the heritage behind the products.
We all know Alderaan was a pretty luxurious planet, ya know, before it was turned into rubble. Growing up you know Bail Organa picked up a nice bed for adopted princess. We know princesses love super nice comfort. There's really only one option for a growing rebel: The Beautyrest Black C Class Plush Pillow Top is what she would have slept on, and we're guessing the Luxury adjustable base with iOS control. Princesses love to control their comfort. Did they have iPhones on Alderaan?
The rough streets of Corellia hardened everyone's favorite scoundrel, but that doesn't mean he wasn't getting a great night's sleep! He may have started out on whatever he could scrounge, but once he started making some serious credits smuggling, we know he'd end up putting the One Mattress in the Millenium Falcon. If it's too firm for a princess, you just flip it over. Seems likely the ship's former owner would've made the same choice...
With that extensive cape collection, you know if Lando was a pretty dapper fellow. The only bed suitable for this smooth of an individual is The Relax-O-Pedic XO350. Though it seems unlikely that Han would've wanted to replace that, so we've settled on even though Lando lost the ship to Han in that fateful hand of Sabbac, he likely took his XO and cape collection with him. Also, guaranteed, Lando was a pillow guy, probably one of each of these.
As a young boy on Tatooine Anakin Skywalker wouldn't have had the best mattress. (No wonder he turns to the dark side, am I right?) But later on, as his body was ravaged by the lava planet Mustafar, it was imperative that he get not only the coolest sleeping, but best pressure relieving sleep system to limit the agony of his injuries. The best balance for him would likely be the Beautyrest Black K Class Firm Pillow Top with the Luxury Base and voice control...not that fallen jedi need Alexa to move their feet, but he would really appreciate the Lumbar support and split seat of the Beautyrest Black Adjustable foundation.
Obi Wan Kenobi
After years of living a Jedi's simple life, when Obi wan settled on the desert Tatooine to watch over a young Luke Skywalker, you can bet it was a LOT warmer than the years in deep cold space. Safe to assume he'd be after maximum cooling, but we get the feeling old Ben Kenobi would be a fan of the Serta iComfort Blue Max 5000. It's supportive and pressure relieving, with a cool to the touch sleep surface. A Zero Cool Tech Support Pillow would be a must for hut living on a desert world.
We all agreed Yoda would want a twin size. He wouldn't want to spend a lot, so something pretty basic. We can't help but think he'd be a Campbell Mattress customer. There's just something about the old fashioned charm of their heritage collection that would jive with Yoda's overall aesthetic. He'd find several great pillow options for his diminutive stature. Sleep Specialists have the solutions for the way everybody sleeps - Short or Tall.
Speaking of tall, Chewbacca might need to order the longer California King. His bunk on the Millenium Falcon would've had to have been modified to adapt to his towering height. It seems likely Chewbacca would choose an M.H. Gray Luxury Mattress with a set of coils for contouring comfort on top of another set of coils for dynamic support, allowing his large frame to rest comfortably and pressure free.
When Boba Fett hangs up his jet pack at night, you know he wants to get comfy. Seems like a Beautyrest Hybrid 3000 Medium Firm would be the logical choice. Sleeps cool, supports the spine, all the benefits of memory foam and the patented Beautyrest support mean no tossing and turning. You have to get a good night's sleep to be a successful bounty hunter, after all. Boba Fett probably struggles with neck discomfort...that Mandalorian helmet looks kind of heavy. We'd recommend a Zero Cool Tech Comfort Pillow so he can fluff it to his heart's content.
Insert water bed joke here. But seriously, everybody knows that that's a trap. (See what we did there?) Ackbar led the rebel forces in the battle above Endor, and after that victory he deserved a great night's rest. That's why we're all agreed he deserves a Zero Gravity Base under whatever mattress he'd be most comfortable on. We were split on whether he'd be a Z0 Cooling Zero Mattress or the Original Zero Mattress but either way, we're confident he'll be comfortable and relaxing in Zero Gravity.
Well, that's it, what do you think? Do droids sleep? What would C-3PO even like to sleep on? Do you agree with our recommendations? Let us know in the comments! We're all different shapes and sizes, and the sleep products that are perfect for you, may not be perfect for people in your galaxy or a galaxy far far away.
Seriously, are there two MORE different body types than Chewbacca and Yoda?
