Previously, oversized mattresses were popular mainly with professional athletes and celebrities
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) July 17, 2008
When it comes to mattresses, increasingly more people are concluding that bigger is better. P.M. Bedroom Gallery (http://www.pmbedroomgallery.com), one of the nation's largest retailers of 100% handcrafted American-made bedroom furniture, has responded with a selection of super-sized mattresses and a full line of coordinating bedroom furniture to make decorating easy.
P.M. Bedroom Gallery sells three sizes of extra-large mattresses:
- California King - 72" wide by 84" long
- Wyoming King - 84" square
- Alaska King - 108" square
"Previously, oversized mattresses were popular mainly with professional athletes and celebrities," said Arvid Huth, P.M. Bedroom Gallery president. "Today, however, many new homes have spacious bedrooms that accommodate larger-scale furniture. The population is growing taller and wider, and a lot of people share their beds with children or pets. Still others simply want the comfort that comes from stretching out on a roomy mattress. "
A recent survey by the International Sleep Products Association (ISPA), a trade group representing the mattress manufacturing industry, revealed that sales of queen and king size mattresses increased between 2002 and 2007, while purchases of twin and full (also known as double) size mattresses declined.
"Baby Boomers, with their higher disposable incomes, larger homes and desire for comfort as they age are helping fuel this trend," said Ryan Trainer, ISPA executive vice president.
While past purchasers of over-sized mattresses encountered decorating challenges, today's P.M. Bedroom Gallery sells appropriately sized headboards and footboards plus coordinating chests, dressers, armoires, nightstands and other pieces. Styles include Arts and Crafts, Contemporary, Cottage, French Country, Mission, Modern, Prairie, Rustic, Shaker, Traditional and Transitional.
"With more than 100 bedroom sets to choose from, customers can have the larger mattresses that they want without sacrificing style for comfort," Huth said.
P.M. Bedroom Gallery designs and specs its mattresses, which are made by Platinum Dreams, a Michigan-based premium mattress manufacturer known for using high-quality components. Prices for larger-sized mattresses begin at $715 for a California King, and delivery and set up is available anywhere in the United States.
