A simple google search of “double-sided mattresses” will reveal the huge resurgence of interest in old-fashioned two-sided mattresses. Orange County-based Custom Comfort Mattress can feel the pull.
“We’re definitely seeing more interest in double-sided but most people have forgotten about it,“ said Jeremy Solis, director of operations at Custom Comfort Mattress. “More often, our customers come back to us for double-sided mattresses – they see the value.”
The value is easy to see. While a one-sided mattress can sometime last just a few years, flipping and turning a well-made double-sided mattress will ensure great sleep for 10-15 years – sometimes longer. This is because a single-sided mattress will wear unevenly, especially if it’s made of synthetic materials.
Custom Comfort makes all their handcrafted double-sided natural mattresses in the 40,000 square foot factory near Old Town Orange, a long way from the garage in Fullerton where the Trudell Brothers originally started the business in 1987. The Company still sells direct-to-consumer, making, selling and delivering their mattresses on their own.
Custom Comfort has a cult-following that won’t buy from anyone else. The reason: no other mattress company offers the same high quality mattresses. Custom Comfort’s double-sided mattresses are guaranteed to deliver great sleep for up to 15 years.
This is because when the industry went South, Custom Comfort followed its True North.
The Rise of the Single-sided Mattress
In the early 2000s, the single-sided mattress was introduced as a way to increase profitability for manufacturers and retailers. This is because a one-sided mattress only requires a fraction of the materials needed for a properly made double-sided mattress and can be sold to an uninformed consumer for roughly the same price. The “innovation” of the single-sided mattress was great for business and bad for consumers.
Most manufacturers and retailers quickly converted to one side and most double-sided mattresses disappeared from the marketplace with only a handful of craftsman-style double-sided mattress-makers remaining in the U.S..
Without much of a choice, most of America bought into a raw deal. As a result, we have decades of people who have been dealing with disappointing single-sided mattresses. That’s because a single-sided mattress is like a single-use paper cup — it’s wasteful and has a short life expectancy.
Custom Comfort Mattress never changed. Founder Mel Trudell says that they stick to old ways because they work well. He says the facts remain the same: a double-sided mattress packed with natural materials is the only way to give his customers the deep restful sleep they want at a fair price. “For more than 30 years, our first commitment has been to our customers,” he said. “We don’t cut corners, make excuses or follow fads. It’s simple: we take care of our customers and they take care of us.”
