Sleep. Designed.

For some, sleep is something that just happens. At Somnus it happens by design. 

Something that they improve and perfect through constant testing and innovation. It’s the difference made by Sensa intelligent pocket springs and the home-grown natural fillings, as well as the quality craftsmanship that makes every one of their luxury beds unique. 

At Somnus, beds are not the end result, they are just the beginning.

Handmade in Yorkshire since 1840.

Established in 1840, Somnus has over 175 years’ experience creating luxury handmade beds and mattresses that are at the forefront of technological innovation. Every Somnus mattress is British by design; from the locally sourced natural upholstery fillings we use inside each pocket sprung mattress, to the British craftsmen that assemble them. It is a traditional way of creating quality beds that they’ve kept alive for five generations – a tradition that always puts luxury and comfort first.

Sumptuous by Nature.

Nature is one of the most important contributors to a Somnus bed and they go to great lengths to find the right natural mattress fillings for their luxury beds to create a perfectly natural night’s sleep. 

Deep beyond the soft cover, each quality mattress has its own unique blend of luxurious upholstery fillings. There are sumptuous layers of Yorkshire Dales Eco Wool, hand-teased long stranded horsetail, mohair, tree silk-cotton, cashmere, flax and hemp, some of which we grow on our own farm. 

These 100% natural mattress fillings are known for their inherent resilience, breathability and temperature controlling properties, creating the perfect natural sleeping environment Somnus are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, growing their own resources locally and sourcing others close to home. They have their own farm in North Yorkshire, where they tend a very special flock of sheep and alpacas that are behind the Yorkshire Dales Eco Wool and alpaca fleece that you’ll find inside the Somnus beds.

They also grow the flax and hemp crops on the Yorkshire farm, which are layered into their sumptuous mattresses. It is a sustainable approach that guarantees our blend of upholstery is always 100% natural, ensuring supreme breathability and temperature control.

Superior Springs.

Introducing sensa intelligent pocket springs, the latest piece of innovation at the heart of the Somnus beds. This innovative technology ensures you always maintain the perfect sleeping posture.

Technological innovation is paramount to them at Somnus. It led to their invention of the double-tiered spring system back in 1924, a world first, and is what has driven them to the latest piece of innovation at the heart of their luxury beds: the Sensa Intelligent pocket spring system.

This innovative technology used in their pocket spring mattresses helps distribute the sleeper’s weight across a higher number of independent springs, ensuring you always maintain the perfect sleeping posture. The pocket springs help support your body more evenly and reduce pressure points, providing a more restful sleep.
