#3 Down-Alternative Mattress Topper
Deal: 73% off
This top-selling mattress topper is crafted with a baffle-box construction, pure cotton cover, and elastic corner bands for extra sleep-security.
Reviews: 4.6 out of 5 stars and 3,261 reviews on Wayfair
"Spent a lot of time researching mattress toppers. Wayfair had a great selection and price variation. Good descriptions of products. Decided to purchase the 3" down alternative topper. It was a great price for a king size. Arrived within 3 days of order and I appreciated the emails regarding the shipment progress. The topper is definitely thick and very comfortable. I love that it has straps to hold it in place and that they are thicker than normal. This topper does not settle much so does not need refluffing all the time. Very pleased with purchase. Close alternative to very expensive down toppers. Pros: Price, thickness, hold in place straps, comfort, Cons: None"

Reviews: 4.4 out of 5 stars and 585 reviews on Wayfair
"Nice, solid, heavy pieces of wood! The laminate is beautiful and even has texture like real wood grain! As an interior designer, I would say this is a great quality laminate and pretty realistic! The color was spot on to the picture on this site. It was pretty easy to put together for anyone who's got a little experience putting together furniture - just make sure each piece is going in the correct direction. I loved that the two wine rack shelves were reversible - with one side flat for general storage and one side with the grooves for wine bottles."

It's exactly what I was looking for - it's extremely comfortable, the material is soft and luxurious, and it's long enough for a 6'6'' man to lay down with his legs stretched out. I love the mid-century vibe and the price was mind-blowingly cheap. I had been eyeing the Article Sven couch and this is SUCH a good dupe! Very, very pleased."

Reviews: 4.8 out of 5 stars and 275 reviews on Wayfair
"I LOVE this loveseat. It comfortably sits 2 people without feeling like you are right on top of each other. Typically mid century furniture in this style is really firm and not the most comfortable but this loveseat doesn’t fit that mold. It’s not only beautiful and has that classic mid century look it’s really comfy. I have gotten so many compliments on it. I highly recommend this piece. If you are thinking about it, just do it, you won’t regret it."
