World Class Ingenuity
Sealy's parent company is Tempur Sealy International,
Inc., the world's largest bedding provider.
Lie on any Sealy mattress and you channel a
century and a quarter of mattress ingenuity. A
journey that began in 1881 in the town of Sealy,
Texas, when Daniel Haynes, cotton gin builder,
filled a request for a cotton-filled mattress. And
then another. And then another.
His business grew exponentially, which led to
more innovations and several patents. Among them, a
machine that compressed cotton.
Fifteen years later, Haynes sold his patents to a
Texas Company that retained the Sealy handle. Soon
after, ad exec Earl Edwards penned the slogan
“Sleeping on a Sealy is like sleeping on a cloud.”
And with that, Sealy mattresses were a national
By 1920, Sealy had 23 licensed plants in many
regions. Even in the face of the Great Depression,
they managed to not only stay afloat, but to
introduce a new product–the Button-Free Innerspring.
The innovations didn’t end there.
Sealy continued their quest for the world to sleep
better for decades to come. Milestones include the
introduction of the Sealy Posturepedic mattress. Being
the first mattress company to display and advertise a
king-sized bed. Creating an Orthopedic Advisory Board.
Reinventing the innerspring coil and the box spring.
Patenting a variety of groundbreaking technologies,
including Posture Channels and Pressure Relief Inlays
designed to relieve pressure points that cause tossing
and turning. And the list continues to grow to this day.
In late 1983, Sealy purchased the Stearns & Foster
Company. True to the Sealy heritage, these mattresses
redefined luxury and expressed a dedication to
craftsmanship and intricate detail. Making it a perfect
and sound addition to the Sealy family of beds.
Now is a great time to visit The Sleep Gallery in
Tallahassee, Florida and dive deeper into the Sealy line
of bedding products.
