The best king mattresses, whether you're sleeping or working from bed

Upgrading to a king-size mattress can be a good move for a number of reasons. Maybe you sleep with a partner and need some extra space, or maybe you just want more room to sprawl out at night. (No shame in being a bed hog.) You might even, due to necessity or preference, work from bed. If so, a king-size mattress can provide more real estate for your home office setup. 
Assembling the "ideal" work-from-home configuration during the COVID-19 pandemic continues to drive plenty of consumer trends. People are investing in at-home standing desks , ergonomic office chairs , and even permanent home improvements to make working remotely more comfortable — especially since many people won't be returning to the office full-time. Perhaps you've realized, however, that working from bed can be great, whether you're sliding under the covers for part of the workday or for the whole nine-to-five. That's where a bigger mattress can come in handy.  Read more... More about Sleep Tech , Consumer Tech , Mashable Shopping , Mattresses , and Culture
