 A Brief History of the Bed and the King Mattress for Sale

This history of the bed is a vast one. While we might have images of our ancestors sleeping on hard ground, history tells another tale. For as long as history has been recorded, people have been making their sleeping experience as comfortable as possible, even in days gone by when that meant laying upon a pile of leaves, moss, or straw.

Both Egyptian Pharaohs and Roman royals slept on high structures. In fact, many Roman emperors utilised staircases to get to and from their beds. These became status symbols to showcase their elevated position in society.

Fast forward a couple of thousand years, and the innerspring mattress was invented by German inventor Heinrich Westphal in the 1800s. This invention paved the way for many exciting transformations in the bed industry and resulted in the new and improved mattress that we know today.

Between the 1940s and 1960s, more regal bed varieties, namely queen and king-size beds, were introduced to the US market. Prior to this, most people slept on single beds and double varieties. Since king and queen size mattresses were so new to consumers, mattress makers had to up their marketing game in order to hit sales targets. In 1961, the US-based National Association of Bedding Manufacturers launched their Better Sleep Month campaign with the famed tagline “Buy Bigger, Sleep Better”, and it worked tremendously well. In 1953 the king-size bedding marketed made up only 1% of total bedding sales in the US, but by 1962, it “accounted for 10% of sales.” Today, the king-size bed isn’t going anywhere, and bed manufacturers across the globe continue to revel in its popularity.
