Tips on Choosing the Best Bed

There’s much more to choosing a good bed than how you think it will look in your bedroom. There’s plenty to think about, from innerspring options to memory foam and even hybrid mattresses. At Sleep King, our priority is our customers. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service. We want to do right by you, which why we want to be sure you find the perfect bed when you visit our mattress store in West Ashley, SC. To help you get started, here are a few tips on choosing the best bed for your sleep needs.

Visit a Showroom

Visit a Showroom

This tip might seem like a no-brainer to some, but it’s important that you visit a showroom so that you can lay on different beds to get a feel for what you like. At Mattress King, you will have the chance to explore different styles, designs, and shapes, and mattress materials. Finding a bed online at a price you can afford is great, but you should lie on the bed first, not just look at it on a screen.

Determine Budget

Determine Budget

Here’s a surprising fact: just because a mattress costs more money, it doesn’t mean it’s going to be a better bed. Sure, more expensive beds might have newer technologies and materials, but not everyone has the budget to walk into a mattress store in West Ashley and spend $3,000. Figure out what price range you’re comfortable paying and look at the best options for your bottom line.

Consider Bedroom Size

Consider Bedroom Size

Before you swing by our showroom and start trying out beds, it might be a good idea to measure the space where your new mattress will go. If your bedroom is on the small side, a king-sized bed might be too big. Similarly, a small bed in a huge room might make for strange aesthetics. Aim for a reasonable amount of room around your bed – enough where you can walk around comfortably. As mentioned above, get specific measurements of the area you plan to use. That way, you have peace of mind knowing your new mattress will fit in your bedroom.

Consider Bedroom Size

Choose a Mattress Material

This tip often comes down to personal preference. It will take a little bit of trial and error to figure out which material works best for your back – innerspring, memory foam, or latex. While your friend’s and family’s opinions matter, keep in mind that their mattress choice was subjective. What works for them won’t necessarily work for you.

Need a quick refresher on different mattress materials? Here’s a quick overview

Innerspring

Also called coil mattresses, innerspring beds are probably the most well-known on this short list. Innerspring mattresses are often more affordable than their latex and memory foam counterparts. These beds are ideal for people who want a lot of support and a cooler night’s sleep.

Latex

This material is known for its great cooling properties and overall comfort. With latex, there are no strange off-gassing odors like you sometimes get with memory foam. Latex mattresses are ideal for people who want a responsive, bouncy feel and may have problems sleeping hot.

Memory Foam

First developed by NASA in the 70s, memory foam is probably the most popular material in the modern mattress market. Memory foam conforms to every inch of your body, giving you maximum comfort and support. Memory foam is also know for its anti-motion properties. Memory foam can be a great choice if you tend to toss and turn at night and sleep with a partner who wakes up when you do. Memory foam mattresses are ideal for people who need pressure relief, good support, and refreshing comfort.

Think About Your Back

Think About Your Back

If you have a bad back, it’s crucial that you find a mattress with proper support. Slat and spring beds often offer plenty of support, but latex and memory foam options have come a long way. If you want memory foam or latex but find the support to be subpar, consider an adjustable base instead of a normal platform. That way, you can always sleep in a comfortable position that benefits your back.

In keeping with Eater tradition, our closeout of the year is a survey of friends, industry types, and bloggers. To kick it off in the Carolinas, Eater asked the group seven questions, ranging from the restaurants they frequented for takeout to the saddest surprises of the year. Responses are in no particular order, and readers are encouraged to leave answers in the comments.

Q. What was your best restaurant meal of 2021, either takeout or dine-in?

Matt Lardie, freelance writer and Eater Carolinas contributor, covering NCThis is hard to narrow down, but I’ll cheat a bit and say it was both the dinner AND brunch my husband and I had at St. Roch Fine Oysters + Bar in Raleigh. Chef Sunny Gerhart’s New Orleans-meets-North Carolina cuisine is stellar — the gator bolognese, the pickled shrimp toast, the bucatini and shrimp — I could go on. But hands down one of the best dishes I’ve eaten all year was the fried oyster hotcake — a griddled hotcake topped with perfectly fried oysters, chili crisp, runny eggs, spicy cane syrup, and whipped ricotta. It sounds insane but it’s DELICIOUS.

Marion B. Sullivan, food editor of Charleston MagazineI had one dine-in dinner this year. It was at the Ordinary, and it was extraordinary.

Eric Ginsburg,independent journalist and Eater Carolinas contributor, covering NCThere’s a reason that St. Roch Fine Oysters + Bar and Poole’s are such beloved Raleigh institutions — my meals at both were flawless. My runner-ups are Hummingbird and Cortez Seafood, also in Raleigh.

Cele and Lynn Seldon, Seldon InkAgain, Blacksheep. Chef Matt Wallace is putting together some amazing dishes, served in a unique prix fixe concept. Also, brunch at Camp, dinner at Oak Hill, and an impressive vegetarian dinner at Topsoil (all in Greenville) with Chef Adam Cook and visiting chef Matthew Raiford. Also the burger at Oak Steakhouse in Highlands. Chef Rob Masone’s whimsical and fun menu at Rock Hill’s Kounter. The smoking tuna poke was truly smokin’ and the Tuscan caesar in a mason jar was as fun as it was delicious. And don’t get us started on the chicken and waffles sushi or the “Spaghetto-O’s” and meatballs! Yum!

Jai Jones, food writer and photographerThe cooking school experience at Wild Common. Led by executive chef Orlando Pagán and executive sous chef Zach Kimmel, it’s a unique chance to interact with the chefs and talk with them about how they developed the menu at the restaurant while learn tricks for cooking at home. This all while you enjoy a four-course tasting menu.

Kenneth Andrews, Eater Carolinas contributorPink Bellies sent the noods just in time! It had been oh so long since I had some of those garlic noodles and the dumplings came through with a ton of flavor.

KJ Kearney, founder of Black Food FridaysI took some Houston based food bloggers to Gillie’s, and we ate through damn near the entire menu. We sat outside, the weather was cooperating, and content was made. It was a lovely time!

Hanna Raskin, editor and publisher of The Food SectionDinner at Cucina 24 in May was the first meal that made me feel like I wanted to eat in restaurants again.

Dave Infante, editor of Fingers, an independent newsletter about drinking in AmericaHonestly not many standouts for me — lotta really solid stuff, nothing mind-blowing. If I had to pick something it would be the various pintxos at Estadio.

Jacob Pucci,food and dining reporter for The Fayetteville ObserverEither The Treatment at Fin & Fino in Charlotte, or the brisket sandwich from Lewis Barbecue in Charleston, washed down with several bottles of ranch water. Totally different ends of the spectrum, but delicious and memorable in their own ways.

Jenn Rice, freelance writer and Eater Carolinas contributor, covering NCM Sushi. It’s like stepping into a different world when you walk into the restaurant. The wait staff and entire team are incredible, as is the experienced, whether partaking in the omakase or just ordering the entire menu a la carte.

I also don’t believe in saying one thing is “the best” over everything else so here are a couple more bites that wowed me this year: birria brisket tacos from Lawrence Barbecue; Aburi salmon roll at Kashin (drizzled in Kewpie sauce!); Italian sandwich from Union Special’s new Fayetteville St. location; pastor burger at Gym Tacos + Bar; shrimp scampi at Osteria Giorgi; Korean fried chicken at Soo Cafe; and the blue crab claws at St. Roch (addictive…!).

Maggie Ward, events and marketing manager of The Local PalateA chef friend turned me on to a strip mall Chinese restaurant that rivaled any James Beard restaurant I frequented in 2021. At Old Li’s Restaurant on Savannah Highway in West Ashley, with a slew of friends at a few pushed together tables, we ordered fluffy sea oyster pancakes, sweet squirrel fish, crispy Peking duck, and the best dumplings I’ve ever had. Topped off with BYOB Champagne in plastic cups, it was a perfect meal fitting of a year when pretense was stripped away and quality food was all that counted

Erin Perkins, editor Eater CarolinasRamen at M Kokko in Durham — it was one of the first time we had traveled outside of Charleston since the beginning of the pandemic, and it was an unexpected find. Not to be “that person,” but it rivaled a lot of the ramen we had in Tokyo in 2019.

Stephanie Burnette, Eat Drink CarolinasThe yeast donuts at Stay Glazed in Asheville. The flavor combinations are crazy but somehow really work like carrot-curry-cheesecake, ube-everything seasoning, miso-maple.

The cacio e pepe topped with jamon at Lula Drake wine bar in Columbia with a little Chasselas picked by owner and som Tim Gardner.

Barbara Skidmore, Eater Carolinas contributor, covering SC and SavannahThe Grey Market — the double Grey Market burger with extra comeback sauce.

Q. What were your regular go-to destinations for takeout and delivery in 2021? [or outdoor dining]

Dave Infante, editor of Fingers, an independent newsletter about drinking in AmericaWe basically rotated between Renzo, Edmund’s Oast (restaurant) and Lewis for takeout for the first four months of the year. Once we got vaccinated, we started eating outdoors at those three places, plus Estadio and Berkeley’s.

Jacob Pucci,food and dining reporter for The Fayetteville ObserverThe first meal I ate when I moved to North Carolina was at Fonda Lupita in Sanford. It’s been a frequent stop for me ever since. Those chicharron prensado gorditas will forever hold a place in my heart.

Maggie Ward, events and marketing manager of The Local Palate Nico for baked oysters and bacon clams, 167 Raw for lobster rolls, and Hannibal’s Kitchen for crab rice — 2021 was the year of seafood to-go for me.

Hanna Raskin, editor and publisher of The Food SectionEdmund’s Oast, Edmund’s Oast and Edmund’s Oast. Love that I can count on the same place for swanky cocktails out with friends and boxed-up burgers at home when work’s gone on too long.

KJ Kearney, founder of Black Food FridaysEasy! Ma Gloria’s Trinidadian, Swank Desserts, Gillie’s, and Rodney Scott BBQ all got a lot of my money this year. I have favorite items from each spot. I don’t need no stinkin’ menu for these spots!

Erin Perkins, editor Eater CarolinasI had quite a few bean-and-cheese burritos from Micho (RIP) on James Island. The burritos were perfectly griddled every time and came with a great green sauce and sour cream. Pink Bellies takeout was in regular rotation before Thai Phi opened the dining room. Once we discovered the giant breakfast sandwiches at Bodega at Uptown Social, it was difficult to not order one every Sunday.

Matt Lardie, freelance writer and Eater Carolinas contributor, covering NCWe got lots of takeout from Lime & Lemon (Indian) in Durham, 2 Rim Khong (Thai/Lao) in Fayetteville, and Indochine (Thai/Vietnamese) in Wilmington. For pizza (and we ate LOTS of pizza) Sofia’s Pizza in East Durham has been our go-to.

Marion B. Sullivan, food editor of Charleston MagazineFIG, The Ordinary, The Grocery, and Rodney Scott BBQ

Cele and Lynn Seldon, Seldon Ink Beaufort’s Hearth for some of the Lowcountry’s best pizza. And Beaufort’s Maryland Fried Chicken, for some of the best fried chicken we’ve ever had! Also, Bluffton’s Farm.

Jai Jones, food writer and photographerDaps Breakfast & Imbibe, specifically for the excellent breakfast club. Also the Garlic Crab Chicken Dinner at Edmund’s Oast.

Kenneth Andrews, Eater Carolinas contributorEdmund’s Oast was a great go to this year with a menu including both favorites and new fun things to try and for some reason always able to be delivered rather quickly from downtown to the far end of West Ashley.

An Atlanta-based restaurant that announced 18 months ago it was coming to West Ashley will welcome its first customers in mid-December.

Poke Burri will open at 11 a.m. Dec. 14 in a 1,400-square-foot space in the former Helping Kids with Cancer Thrift Store at 835 Savannah Highway in Charleston.

The building, redeveloped as The Victory by Charleston-based real estate investment firm Twin Rivers Capital, is divided into four units that extend to the back of the building. Poke Burri is taking up one of the two middle spaces. All four units have entrances from the street.

Poke Burri sells bowls, burritos and specialties such as sushi doughnuts. It operates nine locations.

The diner operates four locations in the Atlanta area and one each in Houston, Raleigh, Tampa, Jacksonville and Philadelphia. Another is planned for Denver, according to the restaurant’s website.

The new Charleston location will be open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday. It will be closed on Monday.

Joining The Victory by the spring will be New Orleans-based breakfast restaurant Ruby Sunshine, which opened a downtown location Dec. 8 at 171 East Bay St., where Blossom restaurant operated for 27 years before closing last December.

Also leasing space in the redeveloped site is Sweathouz, an infrared sauna site. An opening date has not been announced. The Atlanta-based business offers another Charleston-area location in Mount Pleasant.

All but one unit has been leased in The Victory.

New threads

A New York City-based women’s apparel shop is ready to launch its 12th retail location in Charleston.

LoveShackFancy will open at 10 a.m. Dec. 10 at 218 King St. in the space formerly occupied by clothing store Fresh Produce.

“I adore the southern charm of Charleston and am honored to be bringing LoveShackFancy to King Street,” Rebecca Hessel Cohen, founder and creative director, said.

“We were inspired by the vibrant pastels of the city and incorporated them into our own vintage-inspired world,” she said. “I cannot wait to see our ruffle minis and whimsical florals, flaunt around the cobblestone streets on Charleston girls.”

The shop will be open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. each day except Sunday, when it will close at 5 p.m.

Relocating

A hair-cutting operation is moving to a new location on the Charleton peninsula.

Lowcountry Barbershop will move to 511 Rutledge Ave. once renovations are completed on the building, according to William Olasov, an agent with Roadstead Real Estate Advisors.

He represented the property owner 511 Rutledge LLC, which is registered to shop owner Cindy Buhle, who bought the building Nov. 3.

The property’s price was not available because the deed has not been recorded at the Charleston County Register of Deeds Office as of Dec. 7. The new two-story site is the former location of Dell’z Uptown restaurant and includes two apartments.

The ground-floor barber shop will occupy just under 1,200 square feet next to Nunan Street.

Buhle now operates the shop at 114 Cannon St., but the property changed hands in September and the new owner is trying to put a restaurant in the building.

Lowcountry Barbershop has operated near the Medical University of South Carolina for the past 12 years.

A tentative opening timeframe for the new location has not been announced.

All aboard

A Summerville toy shop will host its first Model Train Show this weekend.

Train Town Toy and Hobby will sponsor the event 1-6 p.m. Dec. 10 and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 11 in Rollins Edwards Community Center at 301 N. Hickory St.

Admission is $5, with no charge for children under 5.

The nearly 20-year-old business has been operating in Summerville for eight years. Owned by Jim Donlon, the shop can be found at 128 W. Richardson Ave.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office released dashcam footage of a September high-speed chase that started in Ravenel and led deputies through different parts of Charleston.

Deputies reported speeds went as fast as 115 mph in the chase on the evening of Sept. 29. The sheriff’s office said a deputy spotted a vehicle swerving in and out of lanes, driving northbound on Savannah Highway in Ravenel.

Then, deputies said they attempted a traffic stop, but the driver kept speeding and showed no signs of stopping. According to a report, a deputy spotted the driver throw about five baggies of a white powdery substance out of the window near Tea Farm Creek Bridge.

Deputies said the driver drove through several red lights, leading into West Ashley and started heading east on 526. Deputies threw out stop sticks, which slowed down the driver near Cosgrove and Azalea in North Charleston.

Deputies said the driver, identified as Clarence Coaxum, and a 16-year-old passenger whose identity was redacted from the incident report, started running from deputies. K-9 units located Coaxum and the teen and they were taken into custody.

Deputies said Coaxum admitted throwing cocaine out of the window, and deputies said while searching him, they found marijuana in Coaxum’s pocket. Deputies also found other drug paraphernalia in the car.

Coaxum was arrested on charges of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession of other controlled substances, possession of marijuana, improper lane usage and failure to stop for blue lights, according to jail records.

A judge set bond for Coaxum on the charges at a total of $78,122.50.

The incident report states deputies reached out to Coaxum’s mother after the chase and that she told deputies she and her son share that car but said she had no knowledge of drugs being in the car. She also said her son called her during the chase and she told him he needed to pull the car over.

Coaxum has since been released on bond, jail records state.

EDITOR’S NOTE: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified the passenger in the vehicle as the mother of the suspect. A closer review of the incident report indicates the passenger was a juvenile male. Deputies referenced the suspect’s mother later in the incident report, stating they spoke to her after the incident. We regret the error.
