    In 1946, Abe Kaplan set up shop in Los Angeles after learning the art of high-end mattress manufacturing in Great Britain (his employer supplied the Royal family and other dignitaries). Soon, Abe's Royal-Pedic mattresses could be found in Hollywood's most luxurious homes and the company became recognized as a premier manufacturer of high end, exquisite quality mattresses.

    Attention to detail and a quest for perfection ensures that Royal-Pedic is the top choice amongst royalty of all types - the company has made mattresses for countless Hollywood celebrities, at least six U.S. Presidents, and several foreign dignitaries such as the Sultan of Brunei. Ronald Reagan requested his own custom 84" x 84" mattress when he was the governor of California. John F. Kennedy insisted on Royal-Pedic Mattresses wherever he traveled. Wilt Chamberlain commissioned the manufacture of a 120" x 120" mattress, assumed to be one of the largest mattresses ever assembled.

    Royal-Pedic mattresses contain: lots of fine, long staple, American grown cotton; natural 100% talalay latex harvested from plantations in Indonesia and Malaysia; untreated lamb's wool from New Zealand - a temperature regulating material; and fire retardant that contains lanolin, a natural dust mite repellant. Usually, it all surrounds Royal-Pedic's innovative, double-heat tempered Royal-Flex Innerspring System, the finest offset coil spring system available, with 85% more coils than is standard. The open ended, unknotted six turn coils are ultra sensitive to body contours and are double heat tempered to provide greater durability and resistance to sag. Optionally, choose a 7-zone latex core instead, designed based upon sleep studies at the Kirshgarten Clinic in Basel, Switzerland.

    Nothing unnecessarily fancy, each mattress is made very carefully and by hand, from quality materials. All materials used are hypoallergenic and just about all are also completely natural. Royal-Pedic is one of the only mattress manufacturers that does not use any polyurethane foam at all in the manufacture of its mattresses. Polyurethane is chemically made and contains known respiratory irritants.

    Generally speaking, Royal-Pedic mattresses are known for their firm, orthopedic support and their highly resilient latex content. The Linen Tree also sells VI-Spring mattresses, which have a softer, more traditional feel by comparison.
