Bedding Yearbook for 2012
Compilation of key mattress reports
David Perry -- Furniture Today, November 29, 2012
Our annual Bedding Yearbook provides a compilation of key mattress reports we publish each year.
On the producer side, we list the Top 15 Bedding Producers (reprinted from an earlier issue), a closely watched list that tells retailers which manufacturers are moving up and which ones are moving down. This year's ranking features a new name in the No. 1 position, Serta.
On the retail side of the business, we list the Top 25 Bedding Retailers (reprinted from an earlier issue), a mix of bedding specialists, furniture stores, department stores, warehouse clubs and others. No. 1 Sleepy's hangs on to its leadership position, but is being pressed by hard-charging Mattress Firm, which seems poised to grab the No. 1 spot in the near future.
The issue also includes a feature on Sealy supporting Disney's Art of Animation Resort; a visit to Sealy, Texas; a visit to Sealy's factory in Brenham, Texas; visits to mattress retailers in London and Paris; and an overview of key developments at Furniture/Today's latest Bedding Conference.
