Simmons is the 3rd leading mattress brand in America, and the oldest of the top 3. In fact, the Simmons Bedding Company is one of the oldest of its kind in the U.S. Founded in 1870, Simmons began by manufacturing wooden telegraph insulators and cheese boxes. In payment of a debt, Simmons received a patent for a woven-wire bedspring, and the rest is history. By 1891, Simmons was the largest company of its type in the world.
Today, Simmons has four primary collections on the market: Beautyrest, Beautysleep, Comforpedic, and CURV. Simmons Beautyrest is, of course, the flagship brand that is largely responsible for Simmons success. In fact, it is hard to say “Simmons” without “Beautyrest” just rolling off the tongue. Simmons Beautyrest was first introduced 90 years ago, and relies on many of the same principals to this day. Simmons was the first to discover a way to automate coiling and encasing wires, known as pocketed coils, and this system has survived ever since in the Beautyrest line.
Other notable advances in mattress technology by Simmons are the Hide-A-Bed sofa bed, the first Queen and King size beds produced in the U.S., and establishing a research and development facility based on pioneering studies of human sleep sponsored by Simmons. Simmons continued its success as other companies like the younger Serta and Sealy brands threw their hats into the ring.
Simmons had another big success in the 1990s with their advertising campaign that used a bowling ball being dropped on a Beautyrest mattress to demonstrate the motion reduction and motion separation capabilities of their design: the same design from 1925! This advertising campaign was so popular it was revived in 2006.
Since then, Simmons continues to push forward and offer a wide selection of mattresses at different price points and with different designs. CURV is their most recent offering: a budget-friendly memory foam mattress that offers consumers a chance to experience the benefits of memory foam without breaking the bank. If they enjoy a CURV mattress and want to upgrade, or are looking for something a little different, Comforpedic is Simmons full-fledged memory foam collection. Meanwhile the Beautyrest line is still going strong after nearly a century, and has even began to branch off into other lines such as Beautyrest Recharge and Beautyrest Black. These branches take the Beautyrest technology in a different direction, with Recharge focusing on re-energizing sleep and Black targeting the highest quality luxury in the market today. And for sleepers on a budget, the Beautysleep line is always there with great value mattresses at affordable prices.
So whatever it is you are looking for, from good value economical mattresses to top-of-the-line luxury, innerspring or memory foam, you can count on Simmons to have a quality offering at a competitive price.
