How Our Founder’s Outlook Shapes Everything We Do.

Milton Smith knew everyone’s name. Each morning he would walk through the Dormae Factory in Austin, Texas, and spend hours speaking with the people who helped build mattresses and a host of other products. Mr. Smith didn’t have an angle, just a deep interest in his team. They knew he cared. And that was the point—care and effort creates a better experience for everyone. It wasn’t just because it was the family business, but rather that he saw the business as a family.

Many workers spent decades of their careers working with Mr. Smith. They knew that what he helped build, and was continuing to build, was special. People were inspired to put their all into something so essential, yet often overlooked, as a mattress. But there was never a detail too small.

Partnerships were exactly that—mutually beneficial for everyone involved. Some of the largest brands in the US worked with Mr. Smith because of the quality beds his organization lovingly built, but more importantly, because of his integrity and pleasant “voice of reason” that flowed throughout every point of contact at the company.

He never shied away from innovation because he knew if there was a better way, it had to be a part of his way. Mr. Smith went to every industry trade show, invested in the latest innovations, and knew how every machine worked. His curiosity was another articulation of his care—he desired to know every job so he could step in to help at any time. For a man in the business of rest, his pursuit of the finest sleep was relentless.

Today, Milton Sleep Company is a tribute to that legacy and to the man himself, but also to the decades-long initiative to build something better for as many people as possible. We’re not just another mattress company; we’re different because our expectations are different. From a humble furniture-making family to an innovative bed-in-a-box brand, Milton’s journey continues with kindness.

As he rests well, we carry forward what he so joyfully created.

According to the internet, the price of a king mattress from a major retailer can range anywhere from under $500 to over $1,500. It leaves you, the consumer, to become an internet sleuth tasked with figuring out what is or isn’t worth paying for. But if you’re anything like us, becoming a part-time detective just to furnish your home isn’t cutting it.
