Inventor of the Pocket Coil Spring Marshall Mattress releases archival photo book at Las Vegas Market 

News release written by Marshall Mattress and published, unedited, by BedTimes.

There’s a Marshall for every Bed in the House advertisement. National advertisement. 1955. The ad also was used as in-store POS poster. It speaks to the style of design at the time as we have a number of ads that evoke a similar feel.

Toronto, ON – During the 2018 January Las Vegas Market, Marshall Mattress, whose founder, James Marshall, invented the pocket coil spring mattress system in 1900, will launch Marshall Mattress: The Illustrated History of the World’s First Pocket Coil Spring Mattress, a photo book that illustrates the early history of the company. The book explores the origins of the Pocket Coil Spring Mattress through archival photography and iconic advertisements spanning the first sixty-five years of its company history. 

“The original Marshall Mattress patent was granted for both mattresses and cushions. Though there is a global familiarity with the term Marshall Coil, the company’s origins are less known,” says Bradley Warner, president and managing partner of Marshall Mattress. “Marshall mattresses were heralded as the world’s best mattresses with innovative design from the outset. Marshall bedding products furnished the British Cunard line’s luxury liners such as the Olympic, Titanic, Lusitania and Mauretania, along with placement in the finest hotels. “We are excited to begin opening our archives and sharing our company history and its impact on the mattress and furniture industries through the invention of the Marshall Pocket Coil spring.” 

Marshall Mattress soft-launched its showroom, located in Building B, Showroom 922, during the July 2017 Summer Market. The showroom features both the Portfolio and Luxury Collections, in addition to the premium Bespoke collection. The company is also set to introduce new collections in 2018. 

The five-model Bespoke by Marshall™ Collection is centred on the original hand-tufted bedding and finishing style developed at the turn of the 20th century. These models incorporate eucalyptus, New Zealand Wool, cotton and natural latex, along with Marshall Mattress’ patented, cotton-wrapped pocket spring system, resulting in luxurious comfort and a temperature-ambience ideal for restful sleep. 

All Marshall Mattress products are handcrafted without foam encasement or gels, using the best of natural and new manmade materials.
