It is no accident that innerspring mattresses have been the world’s most popular mattress design for generations. Not only do they provide proven comfort that holds up well over time, but they also deliver a solid night’s sleep at a price that won’t break the bank. Innerspring designs are built around a singular spring assembly unit, unlike the several hundred spring design of a pocketed coil mattress.
Innerspring Mattress Advantages
Quality innerspring mattresses provide an ideal combination of support, cushioning, and weight distribution across the entire surface of a mattress.
Innerspring assembly units are rugged and can hold up better than new age bedding materials over time.
True to the law of supply and demand, the global popularity of innerspring mattress designs means that they are priced within reach of the everyday consumer.
The History of Innerspring Mattresses
Around 1860, the first steel coil spring was patented for use in chair seats. It wasn’t until the 1870s that Heinrich Westphal, German-born, put the coil to use and created the first innerspring mattress. Unfortunately, Westphal never lived to profit from his invention, as it would be another 60 years before the innerspring mattress gained widespread adoption.
