The best mattress stores in NYC

The best mattress stores will give you what you need to get your beauty sleep in the city that never sleeps

By John Marshall

Visiting mattress stores should not be written off as a trivial chore—you’re going to spend a third of your life lying on one, after all. Even though NYC is known as a place where you can find things to do 24 hours a day (there’s a show called Sleep No More, after all), a poor night’s sleep equals poor health. Visit these mattress and furniture stores and outfit your bedroom with a bed that’s seriously dreamy. It’ll make your affordable apartments seem that much better.

Shopping Showrooms Noho

In an industry marred by a dizzying number of options and exorbitant costs, the hip start-up Casper offers a single solution to both: a comfortable foam mattress-in-a-box for a cool $850. Order one online and try it out for 100 days without penalty—if you don’t dig it, you can send it back.

Shopping Soho

Since 1852, these guys have been making mattresses from the best materials available. And while it was founded six generations ago, for the past three, Hästens has been the official bedding supplier for the Swedish Royal Court. Yes, that means you can cop a king-size bed fit for a literal king.

Shopping Greenpoint

In 1971, Monty Bram was something of a pioneer on the path to the now-ubiquitous foam bed. If you want something absurdly comfortable (imagine a marshmallow-cloud hybrid), then this is your go-to.

4. Essentia—Natural Memory Foam Mattresses

Shopping Design and interiors Midtown West

These au natural mattresses are derived from some surprising sources—including hevea milk, the gooey white sap from rubber trees, which are harvested in Indonesia and mixed with grapefruit seed, cone flowers and jasmine to make their memory foam. Whatever, as long as it’s comfortable!

6. Keetsa

Shopping Design and interiors Soho

Environmentally obsessed New Yorkers will sleep soundly on this company’s mattresses, found at the brand’s flagship. Side and stomach sleepers will like the supersoft Tea Leaf Classic mattress ($839–$1,369), while pillow hogs may prefer the supportive Keetsa Cloud styles ($789–$1,259), designed to mold to your body’s shape. And if you’re looking to replace that worn-out egg crate from your college years, opt for a pillow-top layer ($149–$429).

Shopping Design and interiors Upper West Side

In its original use, the Japanese word "futon" meant a round cushion filled with cattail leaves; the Western use of “futon” to mean a sofa bed is distinct. If you’re in the market for a stylish, sensible one, then it’s Futonland or bust.

Shopping Design and interiors Financial District

Jean Claude, this store’s manager, is a go-the-extra-mile kind of guy. He’s also something of a mattress savant, so ask him any questions you have about what kind of bed to put in your crib.
