"But if a round bed is the focal point of your bedroom and it makes you feel calm, then you are probably going to get a better night's sleep, which affects your psychological and physical health."
One more upside of a round mattress on a revolving base: It's much easier to avoid getting up on the wrong side of the bed in the morning.
