Leesa Mattresses as Oscar Swag

As the pinnacle of the annual Hollywood awards show season, the Oscars has weathered its fair share of controversy over the years. From stars treating the ceremony podium as a pulpit for their various causes célèbre to divisive Best Picture winners and Nicole Kidman’s 1997 chartreuse dress, the esteemed annual event always seems to provide solid fodder for the next day’s water cooler conversations.

We stumbled on a different kind of Oscars fun fact this morning. This year’s swag bag includes more than $230,000 worth of free trips, services, and goodies, including a $55,000 excursion to Israel, a $5,500 laser skin-tightening treatment, a $45,000 jaunt to Japan, and a $275 roll of Swiss toilet paper (exactly what kind of black magic does this toilet paper provide for $275 per roll??).

While we don’t have an office foosball table or beer on tap (yet!), we do have an energetic, spirited team (our lead developer is also a talented freestyle rapper prone to narrating awkward moments in delightfully absurd rhymes), casual dress code, and fast-paced environment where job roles can shift quickly based on dynamic priorities.

Better Sleep by Design

“Look up the use of metaphor in design,” he said. I’d just run my idea for the newest blog post past Leesa’s Head of Design, Mitch Murphy. Mitch is half of the brain behind the “Leesa look”: he designed the visual aspects of the Leesa mattress and mattress cover, the Leesa logo, and set overall visual brand guidelines, while co-founder of Leesa Jamie Diamonstein used his 30+ years of experience in the mattress industry to help him design the inside of the Leesa mattress.

Mitch is also one of several bosses I have here at Leesa. So I looked up the use of metaphor in design.

Save It for the Bedroom

(Psss: Don’t go around clicking on links like the title of this post! You’ll be more likely to infect your computer with malware than find a magical insomnia cure.)

It’s fair to say that, at Leesa, we’re pretty obsessed with #sleephacks. If you can offer a way to get a better night’s sleep, we’ll try it. Warm bath before bedtime? Do it all the time. Counting sheep? Even though I have a phobia of numbers stemming from a traumatic middle-school Algebra class taught by my mother, I’ve counted them all. A spoonful of sea slug entrails? Hm. Haven’t tried it yet, but if the situation ever became dire enough…
