It's taken over 40 years to master a good nights sleep. And we still strive for better.

Mastering a good night’s sleep doesn’t happen overnight. It’s taken us years of hard work, quality craftsmanship and a big belief to be the best Australian bedding brand. It’s this shared commitment that keeps our customers coming back.

But although we work hard, we do know how to relax. Our strong family values and fun working environment is inclusive and gives everyone the opportunity to make a difference.

We’re all very proud of our 40+ year Australian heritage and look forward to providing many more wonderful sleeps for our customers to enjoy.
