Mindful of the importance of restful sleep, Simmons offers the best of its know-how to developing the most advanced technologies and working with the most noble materials. All 100% Made in France! Simmons models are handcrafted and carefully assembled in our French factories.
This unique technology, patented by Simmons, is the secret of bedding with exceptional comfort. Each spring is individually inserted into a non-woven bag that is hypoallergenic, aerated, bactericidal and high strength. Ultrasonically welded, the pocket springs are linked to each other on the sides and not on the surface. A perfect sleeping independence in all the positions so that everyone benefits from the sweetest sleep! Improving your sleep quality and bringing you well-being and comfort is what has been driving Simmons for more than 80 years.
For us, it’s always been about innovating relentlessly—so you can get the rest you deserve.
“We don’t sleep until you do” is the company’s philosophy. For over 140 years, the Simmons Bedding Company has not stopped innovating to help the world sleep better every night. 1900 James Marshall patented a wrapped coil spring. Because each one was made manually, the time and labor involved drove the cost so high that they could only be found on luxury liners such as the Titanic.
1925 John Franklin Gail, Simmons’ top engineer, designed a machine that would coil wire and insert it into fabric sleeves quickly and independently. Gail’s Pocketed Coil spring machine generated the unique independent Pocketed Coil design that formed the basis of the Simmons Beautyrest mattress.
1958 Simmons became the first mattress company to introduce the king and queen size mattresses. Years later, they were featured in Life magazine and other national publications.
1995 Simmons introduced “The Bowling Ball Mattress”. This campaign dramatically illustrated how the movement of one person on the mattress was less likely to disturb his or her partner on a Simmons Beautyrest bed.

Both dealers and the public applaud the return of the dramatic television commercial demonstrating the unsurpassed motion separation of the Beautyrest mattress. 2006 The famous Beautyrest mattress was made even more luxurious with the introduction of the Beautyrest Black® mattress. This line featured enhancements in opulent fabrics and foam layers as well as stronger, motion-dampening coil spring technology.
