Product Focus The New Luxury Mattress Market

By Brooke S. Pisarsky As sleep continues to evolve into a coveted status symbol, retailers are jockeying to get their share of the growing luxury bedding market—and manufacturers are providing them with a variety of options. These mattress brands focus on the tantalizing benefits of handmade quality and high-end, fashion-forward tailoring. The luxury aesthetic of these artisan pieces go above and beyond beautiful styling; they reflect the superior quality of the materials and construction within. Fortified by decades (and in many cases, more than a century) of experience, these luxury mattress producers deliver high-end collections to help retailers connect with a booming niche market of truly discerning sleepers.

1 Spring Air Founded by mattress visionary Francis Karr, Spring Air has been inspiring the public to reach for better sleep, innova- tion and comfort since 1926. Perfectly

illustrating such en-

deavors is the company’s re- cently revived Chattam & Wells luxury brand. Originally intro- duced in 1996 and brought


back last year to great acclaim, Chattam & Wells exemplifies opulence and style. Making zero compromises on compo- nents, Chattam & Wells uses ul- tra high density foams, high end latexes, and lots of natural ma- terials and wools to handcraft a mattress that is built to last and is as amazing to look at as it is

to sleep on. Finished with the brand’s sophisticated palette of muted taupes, grays, silvers and ivories, as well as the brushed steel label featuring the brand name and the original crown design, each Chattam & Wells bed marries a rich history of traditional craftsmanship with fresh, modern aesthetics.
