We’ve been sleeping on our Magniflex mattress for over a month now. And I have to say, it has been more than wonderful. This photo only shows one of my old styles of Daphne Linens but what you don’t see is the mattress underneath. It is a Magniflex Naturest bamboo mattress. I chose it not just for its comfort but also because also because of its green/eco aspect. Read more here. I love it.
Last month I hosted the launch of Magniflex in Discovery Suites Tagaytay overlooking Taal Volcano. We wanted the feel of Tuscany, where Magniflex comes from. It is the only mattress brand that is still totally made in Italy.
I co-hosted the event with the managing director of Home Studio, Grant Lim. Home Studio is the exclusive distributor of Magniflex in the Philippines. Check out their beautiful store at 63 Connecticut Street, Ortigas.
My Magniflex family. Enrico Ceni, Director of Far East Import, my fellow sleep ambassador Kenneth Cobonpue, Marco Magni the CEO, me, Home Studio’s Grant Lim, Dr Michael Sarte (sleep doctor) and Chat Guillermo.
The brand is named after Marco Magni’s father, hence, Magniflex. Here he Marco shows us that each mattress comes rolled up vacuum packed, meaning reduced volume during transport and less carbon footprint. The mattress covers can be removed and washed. There are so many different kinds of Magniflex mattresses – from the Geoethic and Classic lines – you’re going to have to try them at the show room to see which one suits you. Check out the entire range of mattresses here.
Magazine and newspaper editors and writers stayed overnight at Discovery Country Suites after dinner. The beds at the inn were fitted with Magniflex mattresses that night. So all the press guests got to try sleeping on a Magniflex mattress.
And in keeping with the Italian theme, I wore head to toe Italian by fluke. My dress is by D&G, coral and diamond earrings from Rovian, shoes were from the recent Massimo Dutti sale and even my perfume.. haha, Bulgari. The ring is black onyx and diamonds, okay maybe this one is not Italian. Had to strike everything out because my shoes aren’t from an Italian brand. It’s Spanish. LOL. So there goes the theory of wearing head to toe Italian. Haha. Thank you Cath for correcting me.
