Decades developing supportive and comfortable beds
Zalmon G. Simmons founded Simmons Bedding Company in the year 1870 in Kenosha, Wisconsin, approximately 570 kilometres from the Canadian border in Windsor. By 1876, he was determined to give the world a better night’s rest and became the first manufacturer of woven wire mattresses.
When Zalmon Simmons Jr. took over the business in 1910, he oversaw rapid growth for the company. He even negotiated with the creators of the Titanic to install Simmons Bedding mattresses on the famous vessel for its maiden voyage. By the 1930s, Beautyrest® became the flagship brand of the company, establishing luxury lines of quality mattresses that support healthy sleeping habits for citizens everywhere.
A history of trademark mattress designs
Beautyrest® has been at the cutting edge of some of the greatest sleep mattress developments in history. It was our innovative technicians who created both the king and queen-sized mattresses that are virtually ubiquitous today. We also invented the electric blanket, the no-flip mattress, and the hybrid mattress.
Given that we’re a luxury mattress brand, you might expect a clever pun that says ‘we won’t rest until the job is done.’ The truth is we do sleep because we require the same rest and rejuvenation we promise to every one of you. Rested minds uncover new and innovative possibilities.
