The Origin of Tempur-Pedic Mattress Technology

The technology behind Tempur-Pedic mattresses has a rich and distinguished background. Born from a marriage of NASA space technology, Scandinavian design, decades of research, and millions of dollars’ worth of funding, Tempur-Pedic mattresses are nothing short of a technological breakthrough. 

The NASA Years

Back in the early 1970s, NASA was working on a project to produce a cushioning material that would absorb pressure on astronauts during liftoff. They developed a material that could provide adequate support and distribute weight evenly, in addition to being temperature-sensitive. After using the material exclusively for a period of time, NASA finally released the material to the public in the 1980s. 

The Product is Perfected in Scandinavia

The material came to the attention of a group of Scandinavian scientists. The Swedish company Fagerdala and the Danish company Dan-Foam continued to develop the material and soon merged. Ten years later, NASA’s TEMPUR material had been perfected for use as a mattress material. 

Temper-Pedic is Born

Bob Trussell from Lexington, Kentucky, visited Dan-Form in Denmark in 1992. Impressed with the TEMPUR material and seeing the opportunity for its use in U.S. mattresses, he formed the Temper-Pedic brand. The first two production centers were in Duffield, Virginia and Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

Later, Tempur-Pedic merged with Dan-Form, and the company established its global headquarters in Lexington. Tempur-Pedic now produced other products besides just mattresses, including pillows, linens, slippers, and cushions. 

Decades of development have made Tempur-Pedic beds a revolution in the way we sleep. No longer do you have to worry about your mattress bothering you at night or giving you discomfort. The Tempur-Pedic system is designed to ease and relieve pain, not aggravate it. To pick up your Tempur-Pedic mattress, contact Mancini’s Sleepworld today.

How to Prepare Your Home for New Furniture

Adding new furniture to your home is an exciting time. Whether it’s a new sofa set for your den or new bunk beds for the kids’ room, bringing in something new and fresh is like giving a room a face-lift. Preparing your home for new furniture is essential to keeping the interior design of your room and home flowing beautifully. 

Know Your Space

If you are looking at those king-sized beds thinking how wonderful the extra space would be to stretch out in, you need to consider the size of your room. King-sized beds can be wonderful, but not if you only have four inches on either side of the bed to get in and out. Measure your room and take these dimensions with you when you shop for new furniture. A queen bed may not be your first choice, but it does provide good space for sleeping while also leaving more space in your room. 

Know Your Layout

Many homes have a standard layout for rooms that are perfectly square or rectangular. If, however, you have a home that is uniquely designed, you should consider the parameters of the room you’ll be adding furniture to. Make sure the size and shape of the furniture will complement the room it’s going in while still maintaining functionality. 

Moving Day!

When you’re sure the beds, tables, or other furniture you’ve selected will work in your home, it is time to make way for them. Move out any old furniture you won’t be keeping and make sure the path in and out of doors or hallways is clear. 

Is your home ready for new furniture? Well then come see us here at Mancini’s Sleepworld. You can visit our website, come and browse our fantastic furniture selection in person, or just give us a call at (800) 641-5337. We look forward to seeing you!
