So what makes the so-called "Royal Bed," from mattress company Savoir, worth the $175,000? Each mattress is filled with pure Mongolian cashmere, virgin lambs' wool and blonde horse hair from Latin America -- and it takes more than 700 hours to custom-make each bed. Savoir says it should feel like you're "floating on a cloud." Given that the same amount of money could get you a starter home in some parts of the country, it better.
