Sleepyhead: State of the art rest assured

17 May 2021

What will Sleepyhead unveil at Furnitex? As always, it’s a closely guarded secret and anticipation is intense. As seasoned buyers well know, the iconic Australasian manufacturer has been setting the pace since its humble beginnings in 1935 when it began with kapok mattresses made in a small factory shed.

In 2008, the company with the quaint, old-fashioned name and state of the art reputation was named national winner for Excellence in a Sleep Set (mattress and base) in the prestigious Australian Furniture of the Year Awards at Furnitex.

Last year, Sleepyhead scooped the Manufacturer of the Year Award and again took top honours for best mattress. This time, it was for the revolutionary MyClimate – Australia’s first air-conditioned mattress – and The Muzic bed with its “gentle massage of music and sound”.

Adding further clout was the recent acquisition of America’s leading bedding brand, Serta, which since January 1, has been manufactured and sold in Australia and New Zealand under licence by Sleepyhead.
