More Inspiration

See what drives us, & what excites us

We firmly believe that creating a new business isn’t just about turning a profit, it’s also about bettering the world around us. With this philosophy in mind, every aspect of our design and manufacturing process was meticulously chosen to minimize the environmental impact of introducing a new product into the market.


Our flexible polyurethane foams meet CertiPUR-US® program standards for content, emissions and durability and are analyzed by independent, accredited testing laboratories. Moreover, they are produced without ozone depleters, PBDEs, TDCPP, or TCEP flame retardants, and have Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality. Learn more about CertiPUR-US® at

The latex used in our mattress constructions is certified to the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS), a new certification available to mattress manufacturers. Control Union Certifications (CU), a globally recognized organic certifier, developed GOLS based on years of experience certifying organic products in other industries, including foods and textiles. This certification ensures that all materials and manufacturing processes adhere to strict and specific global organic standards.

We build products in the United States to decrease transportation fuel and subsequent greenhouse gas emissions, and aim to deliver innovative solutions that evolve with you as your needs change. And, of course, our delivery boxes are made from recycled materials.
