About Our Factory and Flagship Showroom

A Proud Tradition of Quality Mattresses, Affordably Made

Since 1933, Gardner Mattress has been handcrafting the finest quality mattresses and box springs on the east coast and all of New England.

Family Owned & Operated

Gardner Mattress is proud to be family-owned and operated. Founded during the Depression Era by Alan J. Gardner, the business has passed through three generations of family members accumulating nearly ninety years of experience in the mattress and sleep industry. The Gardner name is associated with not only high-quality mattresses but phenomenal customer service.

Expanded Showrooms

Over the nine-plus decades, Gardner Mattress has grown and expanded from the original factory and showroom in Salem, Massachusetts to three locations, including Woburn and Needham showrooms, each one with its own personality yet true to the Gardner family name. Our flagship factory and showroom in Salem, Massachusetts continues to showcase our expert craftsmanship.

Commitment to Quality

The key to the company’s success over the last century has been its commitment to quality handmade mattresses and box springs, along with providing the highest-quality and personalized customer service. It’s not uncommon for multigenerational customers, such as children and grandchildren of Gardner customers to continue to buy bedding from this local business.

Loyal Customers

Studies show that more than a third of American adults are not getting enough sleep on a regular basis. The choice of mattress can greatly impact that number and help reinforce supportive and comfortable sleep. Our loyal customers are not just drawn to the personal touch that the family-owned atmosphere provides but to the constant innovation and addition of new materials and technologies that can support good sleep habits.

Our Handcrafted Product

Since its inception in 1933, Gardner Mattress has distinguished itself in the mattress industry for maintaining a standard of high-grade craftsmanship which includes a commitment to quality construction and reliable durability.

One of our specialties is hand-tufted mattresses, which have a significantly longer lifespan than ordinary mattresses while still delivering the same wondrous comfort. Each mattress is crafted with an eye to ensure even pressure throughout it. Our mattress makers are constantly innovating to improve their time-tested methods and develop new levels of firmness using our organic materials.
