Behind the Stearns

— by Stearns & Foster on Aug 12, 2021

It’s no secret that Stearns & Foster® mattresses are handcrafted down to the very last stitch. For the last 175 years, we’ve been perfecting our craft of creating indulgent, long-lasting comfort for sleep lovers around the world. A team of four Master Craftsmen spends eight hours building each Stearns & Foster® mattress. The details and care that accompany the construction of our mattresses are unmatched. But you might wonder, what exactly makes a Stearns & Foster® mattress so luxurious?



Elegant, hand-sewn tufts top each of our Reserve mattresses and are installed by our team of Master Craftsmen to create a pillowy, quilted finish. Tufting connects the top layer of the mattress with those below to provide reinforced construction and comfort, helping the mattress keep its shape over time.

Materials Matter

Inspired by ensembles from the runways of Paris and New York, our luxe navy velvet allows you to discover unique designs in unexpected places. Beautiful copper details, like our air vents, add visual appeal, but they also allow your bed to breathe for a cool, comfortable, deep sleep. The external air vents work together with our ventilated coil system to help prevent heat buildup throughout the night. Our elegant embroidery doesn’t just list a name or brand. It’s our stamp of quality and a promise to the artful craftsmanship behind every Stearns & Foster® mattress.

Finishing Touches

Just when you thought that having your mattress constructed, designed, and stitched by hand was dreamy enough, we took it one step further. Every Stearns & Foster® mattress is signed by a Certified Master Craftsman, so you know exactly who is helping you achieve a better night’s sleep.

From every hand-stitched detail in every layer, when we say you’re getting something truly exceptional, we mean it. This level of craftsmanship takes more time – and love — but we can proudly say it’s worth the wait. Discover your truly exceptional night’s sleep.
