Earlier this month, Architectural Digest gave us a peek inside Drake’s gaudy 50,000 square foot mega-mansion in Toronto, a treat usually reserved only for Drake’s closest sycophants and groupies. There was a 4,000 lb black marble tub, a skull-painted piano, gold walls, a basketball court, a custom-made hallway filled with priceless sports jerseys (see above). One other thing AD mentioned was that Drake had, in his 3,200 square foot master suite, a one-ton bed that, “cost more than many people’s entire homes.” I wondered what a one-ton bed worth hundreds of thousands of dollars could possibly look like. Well, Complex did the research, and they’ve found what Drake’s bed looks like.
AD originally reported that Drake’s bed was designed by Rafauli for Swedish bed-maker Hästens. Its official name is the Grand Vividus, and Complex says it cost Drake $395,000. The most insane part is that Hästens beds start at $15,000. That means Drake found a vulgar symbol of wealth, and asked, “That’s nice, but is there any way I can be even more vulgar?” Here’s what Drake’s bed looks like. It looks like a very expensive dark chocolate ice cream sandwich.
A rep from Hästens explained that the mattress is hand-made using horsehair, wool, cotton, and flax. The mattress also contains a higher number of high-quality mattress springs. There’s more horsehair in Drake’s bed, which is why it’s so much more money than the $15,000 starting price beds. Anyone with allergies just broke a T12 vertebrae from violently shuddering at the thought of rubbing their body against a $400,000 bag of livestock clippings.
The horse theme doesn’t end there. Drake’s bed sits on a leather and gold platform designed to mimic a horse’s saddle. It reportedly took 600 hours to make, and was designed to last 50 to 100 years. A team of expert bed-flippers from Hästens will come to Drake’s house three to five times a year, for free, to “flip and massage” his mattress.

Today marks Hästens’ 168th year. Soon we will be launching a bed that not only celebrates Hästens’ craftmanship and heritage but a a piece of architectural furniture that will transform a bedroom into a magnificent, opulent space.

Spending $395,000 on a mattress is stupid. First of all, no one sees it! It’s covered in sheets and pillows, and for all anyone knows, it could be a 2-year-old Casper underneath all that. Second, you don’t even get to really enjoy it. You’re asleep! How can you enjoy something when you’re unconscious? And he can’t say it helps him sleep better. Know what else will give you a good night’s sleep? Drugs. Wine. Half a turkey. Waiting for one of his underage friends to text him back.
