Welcome To The Perfect Sleep Center

The key is finding that perfect match and that’s what makes us different than all other furniture and mattress stores. Your perfect Mattress match takes into consideration your size, shape, sleeping style and budget. It is these specific criteria that guide Greg’s choices when he personally selects the Mattress brands and types you’ll find in our stores.

  • Brand

Having worked with Mattresses since he was a teen, Greg has an unrivalled, insider understanding of Mattress manufacturers. He aligns himself with those brands that share the same business practices and principles as him and his family. These “customer-first” partnerships guarantee the best service from start to finish of your buying process. Our Perfect Sleep Centers carry top-selling Mattresses from Tempur-Pedic, Serta, Stearns & Foster, Sealy, Justice and Southerland, all manufacturers who also feature the highest level of research and development teams proving a deep-seated loyalty to ground-breaking technology.

  • Type

Mattress materials have a big impact on the comfort and performance of a Mattress and Greg has selected the best of a wide range of Innerspring, Memory Foam, Hybrid Serta Hybrid Cut Awayand Natural Latex options. His carefully chosen collections and our Mattress Specialist’s thorough understanding of each type will prove to be a valuable asset to your shopping experience and final decision, and ultimately, your quality of sleep.

  • Comfort Level

Comfort levels range from Firm to Medium to Soft to Ultra Soft and every individual has a unique response to each level. We offer a variety of comfort levels so, once we determine your sleeping style, we’re sure to have something that fits you just right.

  • Budget

While Comfort is King, Budget is Key. We understand everyone works with a budget and would never try to introduce you to a bed that was not within your financial comfort zone. While Mattress costs vary greatly, Greg has chosen our selections with price range as a priority. You will find Mattresses in our Perfect Sleep Centers at every price point. Plus, our helpful Financing options can assist with turning your investment into manageable monthly payments.

With Crowley Furniture & Mattress Perfect Sleep Centers you’ll love the helpful head start in the search for your best night’s sleep.

Making The Most Of Your Mattress

Once you’ve discovered your perfect Mattress match, it’s important to ensure that it’s properly supported with a quality base. Many of today’s Mattresses are quite heavy and when combined with the weight of those sleeping on top, base support becomes a key consideration. Here too, you have options, and our Mattress Specialists will guide you through this discussion.

  • The Standard Base: Formerly known as Box Springs, the Standard Base provides support throughout the Mattress so that it performs at its best for many years to come. With a 9” height, this base consists of a sturdy wood frame.
  • The Low Pro Base: This base is almost identical to the Standard Base except it is only 5” in height. Some bed styles and people with limited mobility often benefit from an overall lower bed height.
  • The Adjustable Base: Also known as a Power Base or a Lifestyle Base, the Adjustable BaseAdjustable Base is making a statement in the Bedroom. Operated with a remote control, Adjustable Bases provide many health and relaxation benefits. With the ability to raise the head and feet independently, you’ll discover an unlimited number of comfort positions. Adjustable Bases can be paired with most Mattresses and most Beds.
  • Platform or Storage Beds: If your Bed is either a Platform Bed or a Storage Bed, you most likely will not require a separate base. The Mattress will sit directly on either a wood platform or wood slats. Since the platform or slats play the role of Mattress support, you’ll want to be sure these items are sturdy enough to do the job well. Talk to your Mattress Specialist about your Bed components, if there is a concern, they can suggest alternatives such as our heavy-duty metal Support Systems.

Tips For A Successful Mattress Shopping Experience

A quality, pleasant Mattress shopping experience actually begins at home. With a little pre-shopping prep work, you are ensured to have the most ideal Mattress outing possible. Here are some Mattress Shopping Tips from Greg:

  • Wear comfortable clothing You can’t find the right Mattress if you don’t lie down, wear something comfortable so you can easily twist and turn to test all sleeping positions
  • Allow Ample Time You will need to experience several different beds to determine which is best for you, spending time on each one will assist you in making the best choice
  • Ask Questions We care about helping you choose your perfect Mattress, we want to hear all your questions and concerns so we can talk through them together
  • Come Prepared Know your space and furniture requirements so you can discuss with your Mattress Specialist to be sure your new Mattress will accommodate not only your sleeping needs but also your room and bedroom furnishing

Better Sleep Month

Published On: May 9, 2018

MAY IS MATTRESS MONTH and BETTER SLEEP MONTH!

Our partners at Serta are as dedicated as we are to quality sleep. We understand how a poor night’s sleep negatively affects your day and, ultimately, your life. In our ever-changing world much is being done to improve sleep at every level. Mattress manufacturers such as Serta place a priority on research and development of the latest materials and methods that will create the best sleeping experience possible for all body shapes, types and sleeping styles. Outside organizations such as the Better Sleep Council use their resources to increase understanding and awareness of the impact of inadequate and poor quality sleep and how we might conquer these issues. Here at Crowley Furniture, we stay up-to-date on the latest results and modern improvements from all of these companies and organizations so that we can offer you, our customer, the very best, customized sleep possible.

The latest news out of the Better Sleep Council has just been released and its findings are interestingly genderized:

Better in Bed Survey Results

Better Sleep Council Research Finds Men Earn Bragging Rights When it comes to Bedtime Performance, Women Fall Short

 Better in Bed Survey Results

ALEXANDRIA, VA – May 1, 2018 – Today the Better Sleep Council (BSC), the consumer education arm of the International Sleep Products Association (ISPA), released its findings from a new survey on America’s bedtime performance as it relates to sleep regimen, finding that men outperformed their female counterparts, but both have room to improve.

Participants were asked about their bedtime habits and received a ranking based on best practices when it comes to sleep behaviors, such as turning off electronics before bed, keeping a regular bedtime, etc. On average, Americans* earned a grade of a “C-” (70%) but looking at the sexes side-by-side, men nudged out women for bed rest with an average score of 72%. However, when drilling into specific habits that contribute to a good night’s sleep, men stood out in the bedroom. Results also took into consideration participants’ overall satisfaction with the quantity and quality of their sleep, such as feeling well-rested, pleased with the amount of sleep they get, etc.

“Over the past few years, the Better Sleep Council has noticed that people aren’t bragging about how little sleep they’re getting, they’re bragging about how much sleep they are getting. In fact, getting enough quality sleep is becoming a status symbol among Americans,” said Mary Helen Rogers, vice president of marketing and communications for ISPA. “Through our survey, we wanted to learn for ourselves – ‘how good is America in bed?’ Results from the survey found that Americans aren’t walking the talk.”

Differing Bedtime Habits between the Sexes

Women are particularly deficient when it comes to getting enough sleep: Despite 84% of women believing sleep is important to their overall health and wellness, their bedtime habits and lifestyles have created barriers to get the desired amount of sleep. The two areas where women particularly fell short were ability to fall asleep and ability to rise in the morning. The survey revealed that 34 million women experience trouble sleeping and/or staying asleep almost all the time (21%), and nearly 20 million hit the snooze button numerous times every day (12%).

Loved ones also kept women up at night. Survey results found that more than 24 million women were likely to let kids and pets in the bed (15%), compared to 4 million men (3%).

According to the study, men were more likely to engage in positive sleep habits: 55 million men reported sleeping alone (35%), 22 million follow a strict bedtime – even on the weekends (14%), 35 million do not have caffeinated beverages past noon (22%), and more than 55 million keep their stress level to a minimum (35%).

Other Sleep Indicators

Additional key sleep performance takeaways from the survey include:

·        77 million Americans (24%) claim they have no electronics in their bedroom, not even a television.

·       How this impacts sleep: The blue light emitted by the screens on cell phones, computers, tablets and televisions restrains the production of melatonin, keeping you from getting the quality sleep you need.

·        174 million Americans (54%) rarely/never drink alcohol before bed.

·      How this impacts sleep: For the 46% of Americans who reported drinking alcohol, it’s best to drink it in the early evening. Generally, it takes 1 hour to metabolize one ounce of alcohol, which can wreak havoc on sleep quality.

·        193 million Americans (60%) have a mattress that’s less than 7 years old.

·        How this impacts sleep: Experts advise you to evaluate your mattress after 7 years for wear and tear. An older mattress may no longer provide the comfort and support that is key for quality sleep.

Quality Sleep Is “In”

Although the survey shows that there are areas where everyone can improve, the shift in the way Americans are talking about their own sleep habits is encouraging. Gone are the days of touting the lack of sleep Americans are getting – consumers want others to know just how good they are in bed, as it relates to sleep.

Capitalizing on this trend, the BSC has launched the Better in Bed campaign during Better Sleep Month to support this positive movement of consumers striving not just for more sleep each night, but for quality, restorative sleep as well.

“Better Sleep Month is the perfect time to engage consumers with entertaining and useful tips to up their game between the sheets,” said Rogers. “Throughout the month of May, the BSC will be providing sleep solutions, so everyone can brag about how good they are in bed and, most importantly, for everyone to sleep just a little more soundly.”

7 mind-soothing apps that will help you sleep better

Sleeping is a lot harder than it used to be.

There’s a lot going on in the world right now, enough that sleeping can feel pretty much impossible sometimes. Luckily, the technology that surrounds and distracts us also gives us plentiful tools to help ease ourselves into the land of z’s.
Here are a few apps that will hopefully help you finally get a good night’s sleep.

Apps that will give you a more wholesome rest

Your daily night’s rest is broken up into several sleep cycles. Research shows that repeatedly missing sleep or keeping an inconsistent sleep schedule can mess with your rest overall. These next few apps help you track your sleep cycles to make sure you’re getting the best sleep you can, and waking up every morning refreshed.

1. Sleep Cycle

Sleep Cycle tracks your sleep and wakes you up when you’re least groggy. Sleep Cycle is a nice twist on the standard alarm clock. Using your microphone, it tracks your sleep patterns and wakes you in the lightest phase of sleep so you’re not groggy. You set a window during which to be woken (for example, between 7 and 7:30 a.m.), and it figures the best time to pull you out of your slumber. It even lets you tap your phone twice to snooze.

 

 

 

 

 

2. Apple Bedtime

Apple’s Bedtime feature is a simple twist on the standard alarm clock. It will lull you out of sleep with a peaceful tone. If you want more control over your wake-up time, Apple’s Bedtime, available as part of your Clock app, works similarly to Sleep Cycle, but lets you set an exact time for rising. You can select which days of the week you want your alarm to go off (weekdays only, weekends only, etc.). Choose how many hours you want to sleep, and the app will tell you when to head to bed to wake up on time. It will also give you a push notification before your bedtime.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Pillow

Pillow works like Apple’s Bedtime, but also lets you set an array of timed naps. Pillow is the perfect app for those who want to know everything they can about the way they’re sleeping. Like Bedtime and Sleep Cycle, it tracks your sleep and wakes you in a light stage of rest. But you can also use its features to time different kind of mid-day rests: power naps (15 minutes), recovery naps (45 minutes), and full cycle naps (120 minutes). It’ll give you information about your heart rate, your REM cycles, and how long it took you to get to sleep.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Apps to lull you into sleep

Mindfulness and meditation has been proven to help people who struggle with insomnia. The apps below focus on meditation through various techniques, like music, nature sounds, and voice commands. All are aimed to help you hit the state of relaxation you need to go to bed.

 

1. Pzizz

Pzizz will lull you to sleep with some really soothing music that fades out over time. First: This app looks incredible; its appearance alone is calming! As for the music, think of an incredibly soothing, movie-style soundtrack that you set to fade out after an hour or so to help wind you down before you go to bed. It also offers narration in both male and female voices, but if you find that creepy (which you will), you can shut it off. It also lets you use its music in bursts as a “focus” setting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Headspace: Meditation

Headspace makes meditating easy by breaking it up into small, helpful sessions. The Headspace: Meditation app sets you up with different sessions depending on your goals. It’ll send you push notifications reminding you to meditate throughout the day. Each session only takes a few minutes. If you’re the kind of person whose mind races before you hit the sack, this app is for you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Calm

Calm lets you enjoy a wide range of meditation tutorials, mixing in the sounds of nature to add ambiance. Like Headspace: Meditation, Calm will soothe your mind right before bed. The sessions are longer, and you can set up programs over time to ease you into zen. The app offers ambient sounds of nature and turns your phone into a giant portrait of a scenic landscape.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Podcasts

If all else fails, podcasts are always an option. Err on the side of comedy to end the day with a few laughs before sleeping or something storytelling-based. Remember to use the sleep timer at the bottom of the app to make sure a long podcast doesn’t wake you once you fall asleep.

How To Shop For Mattresses

Published On: February 15, 2017

Do you need help understanding all the crazy terms surrounding mattress shopping these days? At Crowley Furniture you have a friend in the Mattress business. We’ve redesigned the Mattress section of our website to better assist you in your pre-shopping Mattress experience. Why do we say “pre-shopping”? Because the ONLY way to be sure you’re going to get your best night’s sleep is to visit one of our Perfect Sleep Centers in any of our three stores and lie on them for yourself. Our Sales Associates have been trained by Greg Crowley himself, who has been selling mattresses for over 50 years, as well as representatives from each of our manufacturers. They care about the quality of your sleep knowing that it impacts the quality of your life.

THE FIRST STEP

When visiting our website Mattresses page you’ll have many choices to view when selecting a Mattress. This is your first step. It is our goal to help you better understand some of the terms and options available in the Mattress industry today so you can make a better, more educated decision. Choose any of our filters in any order:

  • FILTER BY BRAND  At Crowley Furniture we carry the top rated Mattresses from trusted leading bedding manufacturers. Get to know them a little better through their roots:

o   Sealy: A look back on the history of Sealy details a reputation built on over 130 years how to shop for mattresses Sealy Mattressesof experience, iconic branding and innovative technology. In 1881 Daniel Haynes, cotton gin owner, invented a Mattress stuffed with cotton in Sealy, TX. And Sealy was born. In 1950 the first Posturepedic Mattress was introduced with “additional back support”. In 2012 a new line of gel memory foam Mattresses was introduced called the Optimum series. In 2013 Sealy introduced its first Hybrid Mattresses consisting of half memory foam/half innersprings. Now Sealy truly had something for everyone.

o   Tempur-Pedic: Based on a product developed in the 1960’s by NASA, Tempur Innovation began when scientists invented Tempur Material and reinvented the Mattress. Tempur Material reacts continuously to your body’s specific shape, weight and temperature delivering the cushioning you want and the support you need to fully relax. Tempur scientists continue to innovate to reach their goal of a bed for every body.

o   Serta: Serta has been a pioneer in comfort since they introduced their very first how to shop for mattresses sleep-sheep-5Perfect Sleeper Mattress to the world in 1931. Since then, they’ve brought many “firsts” to the industry, including their breakthrough iComfort Sleep System featuring the latest in gel memory foam technology. In 2000 the beloved Serta Counting Sheep were introduced as brand icons. In 2012 Serta achieved the ranking of #1 Mattress manufacturer in the United States.

o   Stearns & Foster: More than 165 years ago George Stearns and Seth Foster dreamed of something bigger and better. Since 1846 Stearns & Foster has been hand-crafting Mattresses with the very best materials available. But how to shop for mattresses stearnsfoster_craftsmengroupmaterial quality is only half the story. Stearns & Foster puts just as much emphasis on crafting quality. And crafting quality takes time. Twice the time, in fact. Each Stearns & Foster Mattress is meticulously crafted taking twice as long to construct. Experience the Stearns & Foster difference and discover their Legacy of Innovation.

o   Justice: Founded in 1957 in Lebanon, Missouri by Bill and Lois Wampler, Justice Furniture and Bedding proudly serves quality products throughout the Midwest. Still housed in the same location as the original manufacturing plant, the company is run today by Bill and Lois’ son Dan and their granddaughter Angie. Justice focuses on natural latex, also called Talalay latex, Mattresses and no one does it better than them.

  • FILTER BY TYPE  We’re often asked “What’s the best Mattress?” The answer to that is simple: The best Mattress is the one that’s right for you. It’s not always the most expensive or the most technologically advanced but the one that fits you jushow to shop for mattresses Tempur-Flex-Line-exportt right. Here’s what’s going on under those Mattress covers that makes each Mattress unique:

o   Innerspring: A traditional Mattress made of individually pocketed coil springs encased
in layers of foam padding for maximum support, minimum motion transfer and the ability to conform to your body shape.

o  Tempur- Pedic: Both a brand and a type, Tempur-Pedic is the ultimate foam Mattress made of a uniquely premiere specialty foam material that responds to your body temperature, shape and size.

o   Natural Latex: A Mattress made of latexhow to shop for mattresses natural-latex-cut-away-2
foam that supports your body shape and size and eliminates pressure points while remaining quickly responsive to your movements.

  • FILTER BY COMFORT  This topic is difficult to categorize since comfort is a very relative matter. No two person’s comfort level is the same. How an individual determines if a Mattress is soft or firm depends on many factors and personal preferences. What one person may find super firm another may find not firm enough. With that understanding, we’ve grouped our Mattresses into four levels of firmness that are meant to be a guideline rather than a rule.

    o   Firm: Provides inner core support with a compressed padded top for added firmness.

    o   Medium-Firm: Provides inner core support with a slightly padded top for a moderately soft feel.

    o   Plush: Provides inner core support with multiple padded top layers for cushiony comfort.

    o   Ultra-Plush: Provides inner core support with multiple padded top layers, often a pillow-top, for super softness.

  • FILTER BY SIZE  Our website features a Mattress size chart that shows the differences between standard Mattresses. Here’s a breakdown of how Mattress sizing works:

o   Twin: A Twin size bed is 39” wide and 75” long. It is perfect for a kid or teen room, a senior downsizing to a smaller space or anyone living in cozy quarters.

o   Twin XL: A Twin XL (short for Extra Long) is 39” wide and 80” long. This size mattress is common for college students living in dorms or campus apartments. The extra length requires sheets specifically made for Twin XL beds.

o   Full: A Full size bed is 54” wide and 75” long. This size is also referred to as a double bed. It is often used as a next-step bed in kid and teen rooms. Antique beds often require this size along with smaller rooms accommodating two sleepers. Actual sleep surface for each individual is the same amount as in a baby crib so, if space allows, most adults prefer to go up in size.

o   Queen: A Queen size bed is 60” wide and 80” long. This is the most common size bed sold today. Being 6” wider and 5” longer than a Full size, it is comfortable for two adults without overtaking a mid-size room.

o   King: A King size bed is 78” wide and 80” long, the same length as a Queen. The King size bed is increasing in popularity but requires a larger sized room to allow space to move around beside it and at the foot as well as space needed for dressers, nightstands and other bedroom furnishings.

o   California King: A California King size bed is 72” wide and 85” long. While not a commonly purchased size, it is popular with folks that are taller as it is the longest mattress available.

  • FILTER BY PRICE  Budget is always a consideration when making any purchase and our Sales Associates factor this in when helping you select your Mattress. Think carefully about your bedding budget, we often compromise in this area for a number of reasons such as the belief that all Mattresses are the same, no one ever sees it and we’d rather put more money into other home furnishings. While a Mattress purchase doesn’t offer an opportunity to select fun fabrics or improve the look of your home it genuinely affects your quality of life. Without truly restful sleep you can’t be the best you when you’re awake. Isn’t that worth a bigger budget? To help you with your budget considerations, we’ve categorized our Mattresses into the following groups:

o   $500 or less

o   $500 to $1000

o   $1000 to $2000

o   $2000 to $3000

o   $3000 to $4000

o   $4000 or more

SELECT A FOUNDATION

Selecting the actual Mattress is the first step of your Mattress buying experience. The second is to determine which type of foundation best suits you and your lifestyle. There are two main options for a foundation but each has several variables to consider. Watch this video of Greg Crowley as he explains Mattress foundations: 

As Greg described there are many types of foundations available to you, each has it’s features and benefits:

  • Box Springs: A basic wood frame with cross supports that gives a Mattress a solid base for strength and stability.

o   Traditional: This 9” height Box Springs is the most frequently used as a Mattress foundation, it is also the lowest priced of all foundations.

o   Lo-Profile: This 5” height Box Springs is available for those who want their bed to sit lower off the floor. It is offered at the same price as a Traditional Box Springs.

  • Adjustable Bases: Becoming increasingly more popular, these bases are used by all ages. Losing the stigma of a “hohow to shop for mattresses ico_lifestyle_4spital bed”, Adjustable Bases have now become known as “Lifestyle Bases” providing higher levels of customized comfort for all you need to do from bed such as watching TV, reading, reducing snoring, working on a laptop or tablet, reducing acid reflux and more. Just about any Mattress can accommodate an Adjustable Base and with a variety of features, any budget can afford an Adjustable Base.

o   Head-Up only: A remote control, usually wired, raises your head into a more comfortable position.

o   Head and Feet Up: A remote control raises your head and feet independently for a more natural rest position.

o   Massaging: A remote control raises your head and feet and also offers zoned massaging at various intensities.

o   Electronics Compatible: In addition to raising your head and feet and massage capabilities, control your Adjustable Base from your mobile device and plug in or charge electronics from ports directly on the Adjustable Base.

IS YOUR NEW MATTRESS SET COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR BEDROOM FURNITURE?

Cambridge - Queen/King Panel Storage Bed - ICB-412,402,403When our Delivery Team arrives at your door with your new Mattress Set, we want to be sure there are no unwanted surprises.

These questions are vital to be sure all of the components of your bed and Mattress Set will work together.

MATTRESS SHOPPING TIPS FROM GREG

To make your Mattress shopping experience the best it can be, consider these tips from Greg Crowley:

  • Wear comfortable clothing – It is impossible to successfully shop for Mattresses without lying down. All of our beds have foot covers so you can comfortably put your feet up on the bed without worry. You will also need to be able to turn and roll over while testing the Mattresses.
  • Allow Ample Time – With all of the options for Mattresses these days you should not rush through your research process. Plan to try out many different styles of Mattresses spending several minutes on each one to truly get the feel for how it contours and conforms to your body. You will also want to be sure to test each of the Mattresses from different positions: lying on your back, side and stomach, spending extra time in your favorite sleep position.
  • Ask Questions – Technology is changing rapidly in the world of Mattresses. Don’t be afraid to ask questions of your Sales Associate, that’s what they’re here for.
  • Come Prepared – Be sure to know the size of your bed (measure if you are unsure) and what you will be placing the Mattress on. Your Sales Associate will need this information to correctly advise you through the process.

AND WHAT ABOUT…???

Are there still some things that you find a bit unclear? Here are the answers to some of our most Frequently Asked Mattress Questions:

  • Do I need a Mattress Pad or Protector? You absolutely need a Mattress Protector but be leery of a mattress pad. A mattress pad implies just that, the covering is made of padding and you want to stay away from extra layers between you and the Mattress technology that is conforming to your specific body temperature and weight.
  • Can I buy a Mattress only? All of our Mattresses can be purchased separately from a box springs or other foundation to be used with beds that require a Mattress only such as a storage or platform bed.
  • Can I use my existing box springs? We always recommend purchasing a Mattress and box springs or foundation as a set. The foundation plays a very important role in supporting your Mattress and those that sleep on it.

American-Made Furniture – It Does Exist!

Published On: September 13, 2016

Just like giant talking M&M’s and Santa Claus, American-Made Furniture does exist! This Labor Day, Crowley Furniture is honoring some of our manufacturing partners who provide American-Made Furniture, made possible through American workers!

As the unofficial end of summer, Labor Day represents the exit of warm, lazy days and long daylight hours and announces the return of cooler temps, school routines and fall sports. Traditionally it also stood as the last acceptable day to wear white and seersucker but since most younger generations don’t know what seersucker is let’s leave that whole fashion guideline securely in the past. Labor Day-Rosie

Many Americans think of Labor Day as a day off work to enjoy the last hurrahs of summer. You may have heard, however, that we need reminding of the true meaning of the holiday. If you are spending a happy day with friends and family eating great BBQ and taking the pontoon out for one last spin, we aren’t judgey and say good for you! But if you happen to be reading this Blog while eating a slab of ribs or filling up water balloons then kudos to you for both celebrating Labor Day and honoring its purpose all at one time. To make Labor Day more meaningful, let us take you on a journey to learn a little more about it while discovering a few examples of American labor at its finest.

Origins of Labor Day & American-Made Pride

While many countries around the world celebrate Labor Day in different forms, it has distinctly American roots beginning with the labor movement. The US Labor Movement grew out of a need to protect the common interests of workers. Originating in the formative years of the American nation, the Labor Movement led efforts to end child labor, secure reasonable hours and wages, improve safety of working conditions, provide health benefits and aid workers who were injured or retired. In the late 19th century a proposal was made to dedicate a day celebrating workers to improve morale and relationships between workers, unions and owners. The proposal was accepted and today, Labor Day pays tribute to the achievements and contributions that American workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country.

Making A Difference

At Crowley Furniture in Kansas City, Made in America is more than just a slogan. As an American-made family-owned business we believe in determination, hard work, pride in what we do and respect for others. Out of these values emerges a business philosophy that comes full circle: align yourself with partners that share your values, and they, in turn, will treat you with those very same values. Most people would call this a win-win and they would be right, but it’s actually a win-win-win since the end results of these successful relationships are quality products at value-minded prices backed by unparalleled service. This win is all for you, the consumer.

We’re proud of the relationships we’ve forged and would like to introduce you to some of the companies that manufacture American-Made furniture for our three Kansas City stores while playing a large role in their own communities through the people they employ. Here are their stories:

American-Made Furniture by Vaughan-Bassett

John Bassett of Vaughan-Bassett knows a lot about keeping jobs in America. So much that he literally wrote a book on it. Factory Man by Beth Macy shares an amazing account of how he fought to produce 100% of his products in America with American labor. 

Harrington - Bedroom Set - 534setBased in Galax, VA, Vaughan-Bassett Furniture Company manufactures current but timeless bedroom furniture such as the Soho, Cottage and Harrington collections. In 1919, Vaughan-Bassett was founded by two men, B.C. Vaughan and J.D. Bassett, Sr., both of whom were from Bassett, VA

Today, Vaughan-Bassett has many things going for it including their commitment to manufacturing furniture in a responsible and environmentally friendly manner. Through its “One for One” program, they contributed 150,000 tree seedlings in 2007 to the Virginia Department of Forestry. The planting of these 150,000 allows the replacement of every tree used in the production of the company’s bedroom suites. Since 2007, over 1 million trees have been planted by the Virginia Department of Forestry through this program. Vaughan-Bassett has also installed $2 million state-of-the-art systems to increase lumber yield by over 20 percent, thereby significantly reducing the number of trees needed to produce their furniture.

Vaughan-Bassett is also a leader in the “Buy Local” movement. Over 99 percent of its lumber comes from within 500 miles of its factories and 80 percent from within 200 miles, reducing the carbon footprint associated with the transport of primary raw material. But most of all, by employing approximately 700 people in factories based inVaughan-Bassett Factory Man Galax, VA and Elkin, NC, Vaughan-Bassett is extremely proud of the fact that 100 percent of their furniture is crafted here in the United States by American employees.

To learn more of John Bassett’s fight to save American jobs and keep all of his operation in the U.S., read his book Factory Man by Beth Macy: “In a world of blue-collar victims, where logging chains seal forever the doors of mills and factories from the Rust Belt to the Deep South, Beth Macy’s award-winning look at one furniture maker’s refusal to give in is a breath of hope-and a damn fine story to read. The book tracks John Bassett’s fight to keep American jobs on this side of borders and oceans, and keeps one American town from becoming a place of empty storefronts and FOR SALE signs.”—Rick Bragg, Pulitzer Prize-winner of The Most They Ever Had

American-Made Furniture by Justice

The word “justice” is defined by terms such as fairness, equity, moral rightness and genuine respect for others.Justice Furniture Founders Bill Lois

Justice Furniture & Bedding was founded in 1957 in Lebanon, MO by Bill and Lois Wampler. After searching in the dictionary for the right name, Bill came across the word “justice” and felt it reflected the beliefs and values on how to run a business. The company was founded on two core principles-quality and service-and today these are Justice Furniture Owners Dan Angiestill closely adhered to by the third generation family-owned business. Today Dan Wampler and Angie Jackson (Bill and Lois’ son and granddaughter) carry on the quality and service that began in 1957.

Quality is easy to see throughout the American-Made Furniture line by Justice. Their sofas, loveseats, chairs, sectionals and other products feature craftsmanship that only comes from a company with dedicated artisans. Much of the Lebanon, MO community are long-time employees of Justice.

The Justice Bedding line boasts the same quality and attention to detail as their furniture line. Highlighted by their Latex collections, Justice adds a special touch to every layer of their mattresses resulting in some of the most comfortable mattresses in the market today. With a truly unique feel, you’ll want to be sure to experience the special effects of Justice’s Latex foam when you’re next in the market for a mattress.

American-Made Furniture by Oakwood

American-Made Furniture handcraftedOakwood Industries was started with the goal of supporting founder Clay Zimmerman’s family. Since 1987 it has not only done that but grown to provide quality jobs to many more.

The employees are a big part of what makes Oakwood successful. Their attention to detail, time honored techniques used in building quality hardwood furniture and their exceptional customer service has made a lasting impression on consumers from around the country.

Twin Bed Dimensions

Published On: August 30, 2016

Interested in learning more about Twin Bed Dimensions? Help is here!

Why is it important to understand twin bed dimensions? Room layout! Why is room layout important? You’ll be sure to make 1.) good buying decisions and 2.) the most of your space. When planning a bedroom makeover, you need to be aware of twin bed dimensions. You also need to be mindful of the size and features of your space so you can furnish it properly. (And back in the day you thought you’d never use Math when you grew up.)

So ask yourself this: What exactly are the dimensions of twin beds? What is the difference between twin bed dimensions and twin extra-long (aka XL) bed dimensions? And what does 3/3 mean when identifying twin bed dimensions?

Twin bed dimensions are standard in the U.S.: 39” wide by 75” long. This is helpful to know so, in addition to helping you accurately plan your room layout, you can confidently purchase coordinates and companions labeled twin size and know they Twin Bed Dimensionswill fit. (Caveat: Consider mattress depth when purchasing sheets, this can vary greatly.) Since a 75” twin mattress length is often too short for many people, most mattress manufacturers offer twin XL mattresses which adds an additional 5” to the length of the bed resulting in twin XL dimensions being 39” wide by 80” long. Thus their extra-long status. Twin XL beds are especially popular in dormitories. Twin beds in general, are ideal for kids and teens, singles in senior communities and those with small spaces.

The mattress industry identifies bed sizes by their width. A twin size mattress is 3/3 meaning that it is 3’+3” in width. A full-size mattress is referred to as 4/6 and it is 4’+6” for 54 total inches wide. A queen mattress is 60” wide and so identified as 5/0, a king mattress is 78” wide identified by 6/6 and a California king is 72” wide noted by 6/0.

How to Dress a Twin Bed

Whatever type of bed you choose you, of course, want to put your personal stamp on it. This is done through the bedcoverings.Twin Bedding

Bedcovers: Whether you choose to put a comforter, quilt, duvet, coverlet or bedspread on top of your bed consider carefully. Patterns can be fun but if too large or too busy can be overwhelming. The current trend is to treat your bed covering as a backdrop to show off your…

Pillows: Twin Bed dimensions look properly proportioned with one single standard sham but throw pillows can be added to spice up the look of the room adding texture, color, style and interest to the space. This is where you can really jazz things up. If you have a headboard with a design in or on it, however, be careful not to cover it completely with pillows.

Bedskirts: To use a bedskirt or not is an age-old question. The clean look is popular today however if you go this route you want to be sure your foundation is covered in something attractive (a coordinating fitted sheet may do the trick.) On the flip side bed skirts are still common and can fit in with current trends. Consider your bed skirt options such as pleated, ruffled or shirred. You don’t need to match the bed skirt to your bed covering, they just need to coordinate so have fun mixin’ it up’! The Bag of Bedding concept is out. Fly your own flag and create your own ensemble. Mix ‘n match styles and colors that you love and the end result will be a room you love. For more bedding ideas check out our Pinterest board: Bedding Dis-Ensembled.

What about Bedroom Walls and Floors?

Since twin bed dimensions are so perfect for small spaces you may think you have to paint the walls a very light color to make it appear larger (because that’s what “they” say). Choosing a shade of creamy white from the two million creamy white options will not magically make your room larger. Paint it a color you love and embrace its Paint Dramacoziness. Paint is one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to add a splash of color and personality to a space.

Regardless of floor covering in the room consider an Area Rug to boost interest in the space. A rug can be placed perpendicularly under a bed, or, if you dare, place it at a wonky angle to the bed-we bet you’ll love it. If you have extra space in the center of the room try a round rug to tie everything together.

Twin Size Mattress Options

Twin and Twin XL mattresses come in every type and just about every style that Queen and King mattresses do. Types of mattresses include Innerspring, Memory Foam and Hybrids. Many styles from Sealy, Serta, Stearns & Foster and Tempur-Pedic offer options in Twin and Twin XL sizes. Visit one of our Kansas City area stores and we’ll help you understand the benefits of each and together we’ll find the perfect mattress set for you.

While twin beds, also called single beds for obvious reasons, are not as heavy as the larger mattresses they still require proper support. A quality box spring, also referred to as a foundation, is important for the mattress to perform as it should. All twin mattresses can be used with either a hi-profile foundation or a low-profile foundation. A hi-profile foundation is standard at 9” high. A low-profile foundation is only 5” high. A low-profile foundation is a good choice for those shorter in stature or seniors who may require their bed to be closer to the ground. Also some headboards are better suited to a low-profile foundation. Your Crowley Furniture Sales Associate will help you determine which foundation is right for you.

Another must-have bedding accessory is a Mattress Protector. Mattress Protectors are an inexpensive way to protect your investment. As with most things, the world of technology has touched this product as well. Many Mattress Protectors provide temperature regulating and heat deflection assistance with flexible layers that respond to your motion. Many also boost air circulation to keep you cool while an invisible waterproof barrier repels liquids. Check out our Ver-Tex Mattress Protector by BedGear. Be sure you do not use a fluffy mattress pad or topper, this may interrupt the performance of your mattress, especially a foam mattress which will not be able to successfully respond to your body temperature and engage its climate control properties.

What about Beds, as in Headboards and Footboards?

Today, Twin Beds are available in many different designs made of a variety of materials including wood, metal, and upholstery. To find the one that is right for you, you need to take into consideration your room shape and size, your personal style and preferences and your budget. The most economical way to add interest to your bed is with a headboard only. Lusso - Queen/King Upholstered Headboard - 1281-570The headboard is attached to a discreet metal frame which is sold separately. This will give your bed a more finished appeal without taking up extra space. If you want to kick it up a notch, consider a complete bed that has a headboard, footboard and side rails to connect the two. These beds often feature low-profile footboards (which help to make your room appear less cluttered) and storage footboards (a great solution for small spaces). While storage beds are slightly higher in cost than beds with a standard footboard, you’ll save a bit on the mattress set since you only use a mattress with storage beds and do not need a foundation. Keep in mind your twin bed dimensions will increase when you add any sort of headboard, footboard or side rails. How much depends on the design.

While using these twin bed dimensions to plan your room, you also need to plan for your Nightstand dimensions. It’s important to stay in proportion to the bed. For Soho - Small Nightstand - BB5-224example, if your headboard is taller and visually weighty it can handle a bulkier nightstand. If you have a light and airy headboard you’ll need a smaller scaled nightstand. This holds true for the other pieces in the room as well. If you’re one who prefers all of your bedroom pieces to match, browse through our Twin Bedroom Sets to view coordinating pieces within a collection such as dressers, mirrors and chests.

Never Forget the Finishing Touches

Did you know the Crowley Furniture stores in Liberty, Overland Park and Lee’s Summit all offer lamps, accessories and area rugs? These items are key to having a truly finished and personalized space. So you can complete the look of your room in our one-stop shop!

Circling back to the beginning of our discussion of why you need to understand twin bed dimensions, we now come to room layout and bed placement. While lining everything up against the walls may allow you the greatest empty space in the center of the room, this strategy may not be the best layout for you or the room. As a general rule, the best bedroom layout allows the bed to “greet” you when you walk in the room, meaning you will walk in and the headboard is facing directly at you. This may be best accomplished by putting the bed with only its head against the wall and extending the foot towards the center of the room. If you have extra space consider angling the bed out into the room from a corner.

And all that is why you need to familiarize yourself with twin bed dimensions as well as all dimensions of your space and the items you plan to put in it. You’ll find your bedroom furnishing experience fun and rewarding if you remember the old saying: Measure Twice, Buy Once!

Posturepedic Mattress. The Sleep You Deserve.

Published On: June 20, 2015

Tired of not getting the sleep you deserve? Tossing and turning all night? Waking up in pain? Sounds like it’s time to experience sleep like never before with a posturepedic mattress! We’re here to provide you with some helpful information as you look towards transition to peaceful sleep.

 

Why buy a posturepedic mattress…?

Posturepedic mattresses provide your body with the ultimate support that it needs in order to get a good night’s rest. Posturepedic mattresses are designed using the input of back specialists in order to ensure you are getting the proper concentrated support to the common pressure points on the body. This results in ultimate support and comfort throughout the night, providing you with the sleep you’ve never had.

 

What is different from my regular mattress…?

Old mattresses slag and slump, causing you and your partner to roll towards the center into each other while you sleep. Posturepedic mattresses stay firm, and allow both you and your partner to sleep undisturbed throughout the night. Posturepedic mattresses will not just perform once, they will perform and support for a very long time. A regular bed may start to show early signs of indentions and not provide your body with the firmness and support it needs. A posturepedic mattress will continue to support your body, night after night.

 

Ok, I’m sold. Where can I purchase one…?

Ready to purchase your new posturepedic mattress and finally get the sleep you deserve? Stop by any Crowley Furniture location to view our wide variety of options. Don’t lose another night’s sleep, act now. Hope to see you soon!

Sealy Mattress Company: Brand Spotlight

Published On: November 12, 2014

Crowley will always strive to bring you the best in terms of quality and production. One of our favorite brands is Sealy Mattress Company, and with over 125 years of mattress production success, we are reasonably sure they are Americas favorite company too.

 

Sealy was founded in 1881 in Sealy, Texas by Daniel Haynes. He started with just one mattress order and from then on more orders started rolling in. The company rapidly grew to be successful. By 1986 he sold his company to another texas company that retained the Sealy name. This company propelled the Sealy Mattress Company even further and by 1920 they operated factories in many regions and Sealy was quickly turned into a household name.

 

Even through American hardships, such as the Great Depression, Sealy managed to not only stay in business but continue to flourish. They crafted the infamous Sealy Posturepedic Mattress and created and advertised the first King Size bed. In 1983, Sealy acquired Stearns and Foster Mattress Company and when the two combined they soon garnered a reputation as a refined luxury brand with immaculate craftmanship.

 

Fast forward to today, this number one mattress company has held the position for over 30 years and operates over 25 factories throughout the United States. 125 years of excellence, we don’t see the reign falling anytime soon.
