In the mid 1800’s, it was a shared passion for luxury and hand crafted details that brought Seth Foster and G. S. Stearns together. At first to build high-end horse carriage upholstery. And then by happenstance, hotel mattresses. A century and a half later, they’re known as the first American manufacturer of luxury mattresses. And that ideal still lives on today. Every Stearns & Foster mattress is built by only certified craftsman. The most experienced workers, held to the highest standards. Their work is constantly scrutinized to ensure perfection. And because of this detail-minded, hand-made crafting, each mattress takes twice as long to make versus the average mattress. Everything from a stunning hand-tufted finish, styled handles, masterful embroidery and even a peek-a-boo fabric, seen under the mattress are done by hand to attain rich luxurious looks and feels. To further the Stearns & Foster vision, only the finest materials are used. Mongolian horsehair, luxurious silks and cashmeres, along with high–grade wools find their way into these mattresses, for a one of a kind style and feel. It all adds up to a long-storied heritage of quality.
