Here’s what you can find at recording artist Aubrey Drake Graham’s 50,000-square-foot home in Toronto:

  • NBA regulation-size indoor basketball court

  • 21-square-foot pyramidal skylight

  • 3,200-square-foot master-bedroom suite

  • A 4,000-pound tub of faceted black marble carved from a single block

  • Bösendorfer grand piano that was customized by artist Takashi Murakami

  • 20,000-piece Swarovski crystal lighting installation

  • A two-story closet filled with the Hermès Birkin bags that he’s been collecting for “the woman he ends up with.”

  • And last but not least, a mattress that costs $390,000

A feature on Drake’s Manor House in his hometown Toronto by Architectural Digest, released earlier in April, showcased the opulence and high end luxury of his home, which is dubbed The Embassy. 

“Because I was building it in my hometown, I wanted the structure to stand firm for 100 years,” Drake told AD.

This is what you need to know about Drakes matters that costs close to half a million dollars:

It’s called the “Grand Vividus”, a recently launched collaboration between luxury Swedish mattress-maker Hästens and artist and designer Ferris Rafauli – the same Ferris Rafauli who envisioned The Embassy.

Drake is the first person in the world to secure the mattress that comes with more than a hefty price tag.

The “Grand Vividus” weighs half a ton and comes complete with shagreen leather corners and golden brass accents. The mattress, which is more like a museum piece, is crafted by four certified craftsmen who work for around 600 hours on each Grand Vividus, which is made of all natural materials like other Hästens mattresses, such as cotton, flax, wool, and horsehair along with a complicated arrangement of springs.

Ten Grand Vividus were completed originally, while only Drake’s has been delivered so far, the other nine were ordered and paid for in advance. In the future, Hästens’ craftsmen should be able to finish 12 Grand Vividus mattresses in a year, but the deliberately slow process may be further delayed this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Drake told AD that the 3,200-square-foot master bedroom is his favourite room in the manor, and that the bed “lets [him] float.”
