Across the street in a house just like your own live the furniture monsters.
Unlike the spooky fictional creatures found in books and movies, these monsters are scarily real.
You see, what we call furniture monsters, you might know as bad furniture. You know, the old, uncomfortable, worn-out furniture that you’ve been wanting to replace?
So how do you know if your house is haunted?
Allow us to introduce you to the most common furniture monsters...
The saggy mattress
Scared of monsters under the bed? They’ve got nothing on a saggy, 15-year old mattress with zero support. If you’re tossing and turning, waking up with back pain or overheating you’ve probably got yourself a mattress monster.
Commonly seen on the side of the road awaiting their hard rubbish fate, these mattresses will make any house feel haunted.
Luckily, this story has a hero in the form of a hybrid mattress. With five-zone pocket springs for personalised support and dreamy cooling memory foam for the ultimate comfort, the Eva Mattress has your back when it comes to good sleep.
Not all heroes wear capes, some wear sheets.
The creaky bed frame
Squeaky, creaky bed frames are the soundtrack of our nightmares. Unstable and dangerously annoying, they are not to be messed with.
And if that's not bad enough, most of them come with a never-ending list of assembly instructions and at least 3 tools you've never heard of. Want to move house? You'll probably never be able to get it apart. And if you do, it'll take a small army to get it back together.
Varieties of the bed frame monster can also be seen in cases of no under bed storage, slats that don't stay in place and bed frames made from unsustainable timber.
If you're still sleeping on a bed frame monster, we beg you to break the curse and upgrade to the award-winning Timber Bed Frame.
The share house sofa
Just the thought of this monster sends shivers down our spine. Full of unidentifiable food crumbs, lost remotes and loose change, the share house sofa has been around the block (literally). Found on the side of the road or picked up for a bargain 10+ years ago, this sofa haunts many a home.
However, sofa monsters can be hard to identify, like a wolf in sheep's clothing. Not all sofa monsters look outdated or worn, some might actually be a first sofa purchase, full of hopes and dreams. A sofa that seemed great at first but quickly deteriorated due to poor quality. Or, perhaps it felt comfortable in the showroom but when you got it home something just felt... off.
But this tale has a happy ending, the All Day Sofa cushions are made from memory foam for that supportive yet sink-in feeling — perfect for lounging. And apart from being ultra-comfortable — the number one requirement of a sofa — it's also incredibly durable.
Made from a recycled, hard-wearing fabric that's pet, child and housemate friendly and washable covers, your sofa will stay looking brand new for years to come.
The 15-year old pillow
If you think those true crime shows you binge are scary, just wait until you see what creatures are lurking in your pillow. Dust, bacteria, pet dander and dead skin all build up in your pillow over time, and if you're like most people, your pillow is probably way past its expiry date.
With an average 2-year sleep life, even if your pillow still feels comfortable, there's a good chance it has not only slowly become unsupportive but is full of the uninvited friends we mention above. All of which can cause allergies, skin problems and poor sleep quality. Spooky.
Most people are picky when it comes to their pillow, so we made a pillow that suits all sleepers. The Eva Pillow is adjustable with a removable, washable cover and is made from cooling memory foam. Not only will you never have to flip your pillow over to the cold side again, but the charcoal-infused memory foam will keep it fresh and hygienic for years to come.
The pilled sheet ghost
These scary monsters can be hard to spot at first. Often they're hiding under a duvet, throw or at the back of the linen closet, but don't think that makes them any less terrifying.
Sometimes full of holes, other times scratchy and itchy, this monster can strike when you're least expecting.
While they've served you well over years, scary bed linen should be repurposed or donated to furry friends in need. After all, if you've ever slipped into a bed of freshly washed, brand new sheets you know that nothing else in life can compare.
Eva Hemp Linen is long-lasting and durable, so no matter how many times you wash and wear, it will only get better — no pilling or holes in sight. It's also certified organic, breathable and antibacterial so you can sleep peacefully knowing that there's no nasty chemicals or germs taking up your side of the bed.
While it can feel difficult to break the curse of bad furniture, Eva make it easy. With a 100 day trial, free delivery and generous warranties, you can be sure you'll live Happily Ever Eva.
