WELCOME TO BEDROOMS & MORE. THIS IS OUR STORY.
Bedrooms & More opened its doors in 1972. And we’ve been doing business on NE 45th Street in Seattle, just 2 blocks west of I-5, ever since.
We were originally a waterbed store and, well, we're not anymore. You probably aren't surprised we phased out this once-hot
product, though we do still carry waterbed supplies for the true diehards!
Today, Bedrooms & More is a destination bedrooms store supplying the Pacific Northwest region & far beyond with high quality mattresses, bedroom furniture, & natural bedding.
We’ve grown and matured a lot as a business over the last four decades. Yet we’ve always stayed true to our core values: carrying quality products and building lasting relationships.
Following the waterbed craze of the 1970s, owners Jeff and Wanda Garfield began looking for a reliable alternative to waterbeds. Latex fulfilled that need with its similar conforming properties, with the added benefits of longevity, durability, and customization. Along with the introduction of latex to our store came an additional expansion into other varieties of mattresses, including innerspring and hybrid beds.
When the mattress industry was taken over by private equity firms in the 1990s & subsequently slipped into the era of the “one-sided,” "can’t flip" mattress, Bedrooms & More decided it was time to part ways with the mainstream.
We were unwilling to compromise on our standards of quality and longevity — and we didn’t want to participate in duping American consumers — so we began collaborating with manufacturers to design custom beds exclusive to our store. Leveraging our long-standing relationships with manufacturers, we were able to set a precedent for how our mattresses would be made and what materials would be used. The well-being of our customers has always driven us to innovate and challenge the norm.
Our goal is to improve the lives of our customers by responsibly promoting durable, quality, earth-friendly products for the home. We source, sell, and act with integrity, striving always to provide unmatched service.
In 2009, we launched our sister company, 45th Street Bedding.
Raw commodities had become unreliable in their quality, so in order to uphold our standards, we decided to source and guarantee our own materials. After sending family members to southeast Asia to see the rubber tree groves and the factories where the latex was processed, 45th Street Bedding began importing its own botanical latex.
Botanicore™ became the exclusive, proprietary label for our latex cores and the gold-standard for all latex on the market. Now, 45th Street Bedding is the largest importer of botanical latex in the Pacific Northwest. In addition to mattresses, we design, manufacture, and sell our own high quality, breathable, largely machine washable comforters, mattress toppers, pillows, and beds pads and protectors.
In 2016, we're expanding our operation to include a brand new, state of the art building just half a block East of where it all began.
This 21,000 square foot building will house expanded retail operations as well as 45th Street Bedding. We’re excited to have more space for our customers to explore our products. Our original location on the corner of 45th Street and Latona in Seattle will stay put, but it won’t be long before we open the doors to our new, fresh and modern shopping environment. In the words of the architect Stuart Silk, "this building promises to become a landmark gateway to the Wallingford neighborhood."
From this broad history, it’s the experience we’ve gained that we value most.
When it comes to sleep products, we know what works for comfort and what materials will last. We’re selective about our products because we know that most of the industry is not. We’re committed to taking responsibility for our choices as manufacturers and retailers, and to communicating transparently with customers.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned in 44 years, it’s that we’d be nowhere without our customers. That’s why we’ve chosen to invest in your comfort and satisfaction by offering only the highest quality, most comfortable, longest lasting products on the market.
Between our extensive insider knowledge and our wide variety of products, we’re confident that we can help improve your life and sleep.
We invite you to explore our products.
