If you’re heading back to school this fall, there’s no better place to shop than US-Mattress. Whether you’re looking for a new mattress, bedding, or furniture, you can get the lowest prices on the best brands when you shop with US-Mattress.

Shop through our collection of college themed bedding, and ensure you show up to school packing a lot of pride!



Every student needs a desk to study at, and no matter what kind of space you live in, you can find a desk to perfectly fit in any room. A wall mount desks is kind of like the Murphy bed of desks. You can pull it down while you’re working, and then close it up when you’re done. Most wall mount desks have plenty of room for a lap top, and many of them come with drawers and storage compartments that help you stay organized. Corner desks are also a good option for work space in a small room. They fit right into the corner of your wall, making the most of what is often wasted space. Corner desks also have deeper drawers than wall mount desks, so if you plan on storing a lot of study materials, then a corner desk might be a better option for you.

No matter what kind of furniture, bedding, or accessories you need to make this the best year of college, you can find them at US-Mattress. Shop today, and get everything you need before the summer’s over!

Common Bedding Fabrics

July 29, 2014


While most of us put a lot of time into finding the right mattress, many of us don’t put much effort into finding the right bedding. But bedding plays a large role in our sleep experience. Without the right sheets on your bed, you won’t experience the full comfort potential of your mattress. At US-Mattress, you can shop through hundreds of bedding items to create the ideal sleep environment. But how do you know which materials and fabrics will deliver the comfort you’re seeking? The following fabrics are the most common types used in the bedding items on our site. Take a look and learn how to pick the items that will help you experience maximum comfort on your mattress.


There are many types of cotton used in bed sheets today. With varying degrees of softness, smoothness, and durability, you’re likely to find a cotton sheet that suits you. One popular type is combed cotton, which is formed by a process that removes short fibers and any other impurities in the material, resulting in a smooth, soft product. Egyptian cotton is another popular type of cotton. Grown only in Egypt, it is known worldwide as the strongest, most luxurious cotton. Purchasing an Egyptian cotton sheet set is a great way to ensure you experience exceptional softness.


When people think about polyester, they rarely think “comfortable.” But polyester has come a long way since it was found in the shoulder-reaching lapels of your dad’s prom tuxedo. While some polyester items can be scratchy and gritty, blends like microfiber are extremely soft. Polyester bedding also has some advantages over more natural feeling materials. Wrinkle resistance, durability, and high color retention are aspects of polyester that make it a smart choice for bedding. The longer your sheets and comforter keep their original look and feel, the longer you can go without spending money to replace them.


Wool is an excellent material to keep on your bed during the cold nights of winter. Wool comforters and throw blankets provide additional warmth and, because of their dense, strong construction, last for a long time. But wool doesn’t always have to provide excessive warmth. Many wool blends in sheets and comforters provide the same breathability as other, more airy materials. These blends can stay on your bed throughout the entire year and won’t cause overheating.

If it’s time for you to replace your sheets, head to US-Mattress to find the best selection and the lowest prices. You spend about a third of your life in bed. Why not make it more comfortable?

Finding the Right Pillow

June 26, 2014


With so many different types of pillows on the market today, it’s becoming more difficult for shoppers to easily identify which is the best choice for them. A comfortable pillow is necessary to get the kind of deep rest that every individual seeks, and sleeping on the wrong kind of pillow can leave you feeling sore and tired in the morning. Since finding the right pillow is just as important as finding the right mattress, US-Mattress offers a handy a Pillow Comfort Scale to help shoppers find the best pillows for the way they sleep. This 5-point scale is easy to use and it’s a valuable tool that helps shoppers accurately narrow their search and make the best purchase.

1: Firm
Firm pillows are ideal for side sleepers because they give the right amount of support to the neck, back, and shoulders. Firm pillows don’t conform as easily as softer pillows, so stomach sleepers should avoid these.

2: Medium-Firm
Pillows with medium-firmness are perfect for back and side sleepers who favor a firmer support, but also like to feel some cushioning.

3: Medium
Medium pillows are great for sleepers who change positions throughout the night, as well as those without a specific comfort preference. Unless you’re adamant about having a very soft or very firm pillow, you’ll likely find these pillows comfortable and supportive.

4: Medium-Soft
Medium-soft pillows are a great choice for back or stomach sleepers who have a preference for softer comfort. Back sleepers should be cautious when purchasing one of these. Larger bodied back sleepers will likely find these pillows too soft and unsupportive.

5: Soft
If you’re the kind of person who enjoys supreme softness, then you’ll enjoy pillows in this category. They are ideal for stomach sleepers who like to snuggle and scrunch their pillows at night. Most sleepers will find these pillows too soft, so make sure you really like a soft pillow before purchasing one with this rating.

Now that you have the tools you need, you’re just a few clicks away from finding the perfect pillow for the way you sleep. Choose your comfort level below, and find your new pillow today!

More Cool Bedding

June 5, 2014


Continuing with this week’s summer bedding theme, I’d like to share some products that will help you stay cool throughout the hot, sweaty nights of summer.

Advanced Systems

Your bed traps a lot of heat, and a cooling mattress pad can make a big difference on a sweaty night. Sleep experts say that the best sleeping temperature is right around 65°F. It can be really hard to get that cool on a hot night, especially when you’re under the covers. The Chilipad from Chili Technology features a micro-climate thermostat control system that cools your bed, allowing you to sleep comfortably without having to throw off your sheets. It can cool your bed all the way down to 46°F, and its wireless remote and digital display allow you to program the perfect temperature. Also, you won’t have to stow away the Chilipad in the fall, as it functions as a heating pad as well.

Traditional Mattress Pads

If you would rather employ a traditional mattress pad to help keep you cool, then you’ll enjoy the Design Weave Dreamaire Outlast Mattress Pad. It features a soft and luxurious Outlast knit fabric that will help you enjoy dry, comfortably sleep all night long. The mattress pad is also breathable and easily machine washable.

Don’t suffer through another summer of sweaty, sleep-deprived nights. This year, take the stress and sweat out of your sleep, and use these helpful products to enjoy cool, relaxing rest.

The Benefits of Smarter Sleep

Comforpedic iQ is the only mattress line recommended by best-selling author and pioneer of integrative medicine, Dr. Andrew Weil.

On average, participants fell asleep twice as fast, increased the time they spent in REM sleep, and spent less time lying awake. By falling asleep faster and achieving a deeper level of rest, sleepers are less likely to hit the snooze button and can make the most out of extra minutes in the morning. is the web’s best destination for the lowest prices on Beautyrest Comforpedic iQ mattresses.

May 20, 2014


Dear Snooze Guru,

I enjoyed reading your post a while ago about the Sealy Posturepedic Allergy Protection Pillow Encasement. I suffer from allergies all year, but the spring is when my allergies tend to get the best of me. I’m willing to try any remedy that will help me get deep sleep, even when my allergies are at their worst. When I was reading about the pillow encasement, I wondered if Sealy could apply that same technology to a mattress encasement. Is there a product available that can protect my mattress from allergens too?

It has a soft 230 thread count polyester and decorative microfiber fabric with a zipper and waterproof backing. It’s easily machine washable, and it features a specially treated stain release finish.
