Luma Sleep ~ TMU Trusted Member

Luma Sleep™ was founded in 2015 by three veterans of the US mattress industry who had worked together at Latex International (now Talalay Global) from 2001-2005. Steve was the President & CEO at LI who went on to be President of Consolidated Bedding (Spring Air), Restonic and Southerland. Jim, who started his career at Sealy and Simmons, stayed at LI leading sales while David went on to start and run Barnum Design, a brand marketing company based in NY. Our mattress industry and product expertise come from our collective experiences as hands-on executives working in the US mattress supply chain as component suppliers, mattress manufacturers, retailers and through Luma Sleep™, e-commerce retail.

:star: We deliver transparency, integrity, and quality in everything we do!

Over the years, we learned a lot about the importance of a good night’s sleep, what it takes to design and build top-quality mattresses, and how important your mattress is to your overall health and well-being. We also learned how needlessly complicated, frustrating, and expensive it is to buy a mattress at a retail store.

We started Luma Sleep™ because we see internet-based shopping as a simpler, more practical, and better way for us to help a lot of people get a great night’s sleep. We know a lot about the entire mattress industry in the US & Canada, what the mattress industry does well, and perhaps more importantly, what it doesn’t. We know that to make a great mattress, it has to be properly engineered, and it must have great stuff inside, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. So, in 2015 we got back in touch with some of the folks we used to work with, like raw material suppliers, mattress manufacturers, and sleep science experts, and we created Luma Sleep™. Luma Sleep takes pride in our products and in offering prospective customers advice.

:star: We enjoy sharing what we know (and continue to learn), whether the customer buys from us or somewhere else we are dedicated to transforming the mattress ownership and sleep experience with one goal- helping people find the right mattress so they can “Sleep Happily Ever After”!
