Luxury Bedding by Jamison

Many of us go on vacation at expensive hotels just so we can remember what it’s like to get a good night’s sleep. Luxury bedding and mattresses used to be just that — a luxury that few could afford, and so pricey that only the highest-end hotels could invest in these amenities. Guess what? You can now make champagne wishes and have caviar dreams right in the comfort of your own bedroom with a Jamison mattress.

Jamison Bedding was founded in 1883 with a basic business model that emphasized production of handcrafted products and stellar customer service. After 135 years, Jamison continues to deliver its promise and is the mattress of choice for many hotels across the country. We are proud to partner with this extraordinary mattress and bedding company.  However, these mattresses are so amazing that we only offer them in-store.  Visit our showroom and you can easily feel the difference for yourself.

We showcase the Resort collection from Jamison.  These mattresses offer “high resiliency proprietary all foam support cores using varying comfort layers from convoluted foam to latex and visco memory foam.” So what exactly does that mean? Well, for starters, you’ll fall asleep thinking you’re on that dream vacation you’ve been thinking of taking. It also means that your mattress is resilient enough to stand up to many years of good sleep. You can purchase the mattress with or without Jamison’s steel foundational box spring, depending on your bedding needs.

Features

Want to know about some of the features included in your Jamison mattress? Thermo Cool Technology creates a  better, cooler sleep experience that helps consistent sleep temperature. Luxury firm comfort foam offers the ultimate collection of support layers. A Semi-Flex Foundation with a rigid metal wire grid allows some “give” but maximizes support for the mattress. Jamison Resort mattresses also offer firm, plush, or pillow-top options.

We found this awesome review of one customer’s Jamison: “This is without doubt the most comfortable mattress I’ve ever had. The very first instant I get on the mattress I notice it. And it hasn’t changed over time–it stills feels as wonderful today as it did when I first got it. I really look forward to climbing into bed at night.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!

3 Steps to Choosing the Right Mattress Size

When you’re looking for the right mattress, size matters! Depending on who is going to use it, you have plenty of options. It can seem overwhelming to figure out all of the variations in mattress size, length, width, and depth. Let our mattress experts help with this quick-start guide!

Step One: Making Room

Are you looking for some extra room for you and your partner to spread out? How about your child/children?  Are they transitioning to a “big kid” bed?  Is your mother-in-law coming to spend time in your guest room? Figuring out which mattress size you need is a purely personal decision.  However, consider how the mattress will be used and which room it will be going in. Twin sizes are great for kids and single-sleeper adults, and full sizes are perfect for singles who like to stretch out. Queen sizes can accommodate a couple of snugglers, or solo sleepers who want lots of bed without taking up the whole room. With king sized mattresses, the whole family can pile in!

Step Two: Consider bedding

Bedding like sheets and blankets for standard twin, full, queen, and king mattresses are easy to find.  They can be very affordable depending on what they’re made of and where you buy them. Custom bedding for the less popular mattress sizes (twin XL, California king) can be harder to find and a bit pricier. If you already own bedding, double-check the dimensions so you know which mattress size you should be looking at. Also, remember that the pillows, pillowcases, and shams for king size bedding are larger than the other sizes. Depending on the mattress style you buy, you could also pay more for extra depth on fitted sheets to allow for a pillow or foam topper.

Step Three: Get deep

Traditional, old-school mattresses used to have a standard depth of 7 inches. However, recent innovation in mattress construction has created a new generation of mattress that can be up to 24 inches high! Keep this measurement in mind as you shop.  Once you add in the height of your frame and box spring, the inches add up.  This is especially important to consider for those who have trouble climbing in and out of bed.  If you are purchasing a mattress for a child or someone with mobility issues, perhaps look for a mattress with a lower setup.

Make sure you research before you make a mattress investment. The most common mistake most people make is that the bed we buy ends up being too small! Mattresses aren’t one-size-fits-all, and that’s okay because there are plenty of options for every style sleeper.  Once you know what mattress size is right for your situation, come visit our showroom and let us help you find the perfect mattress!
