The large furniture that reminds you of relaxation and sleep is nothing other than the 'Bed'. In ancient era in Avon, beds were made of loads of straw or a heap of palm leaves or some other natural objects. Bed was initially used to prevent men from dirt, pests, draught, etc. Initially in Avon, given the cost, only the rich could afford the luxury of a bed for their relaxation. The beds in Avon were made of stone, wood or metal and frequently were decorated with pearl or ivory. Now the models and manufacturing process of beds in Avon have changed a lot. Most of the recent beds consist of a mattress on a wooden or metal bed frame, with the mattress resting either on a solid base or a sprung base. For better head support and comfort, most of the people use pillow, placed at the top of the mattress. Apart from pillow, bed cover or sheets, blankets or quilts are also used for relaxation on bed. There are various sizes of beds used across the globe now, such as, single bed, twin bed, king size bed, queen-size, etc. 'Bathing' is one of our daily activities to keep ourselves clean and the most essential thing required for the same is water. We can have our bath under the shower or in a bath tub available in a bathroom, in a river, lake, pool, springs or sea. There may be different purposes and ways of bathing in Avon. A religious bath is generally referred to as an 'immersion'; use of water for remedial purposes is known as water treatment; and engaging in leisure and sport water activities can be termed as 'swimming'.
