In 2012, founders JT and Daehee decided a change was needed in the mattress industry. Tired of the overpriced, gimmicky mattress sales they were used to, they created Tuft and Needle to offer high-quality mattresses at an affordable price.
They also eschewed the typical mattress materials like foam, latex, and springs, for their own innovative material, Adaptive® Foam.

Founders: Two Friends Who Wanted a Change
When co-founder JT first got married, he and his wife went looking for a new mattress. Overwhelmed by the high prices, pushy sales staff, and subpar quality, he complained to his friend and colleague Daehee, who admitted he’d had a similar mattress experience.
Together, they decided that there needed to be a better way to shop for and sell mattresses, so in 2012 they founded Tuft and Needle.
The driving force behind Tuft and Needle is a desire to bring fairness, quality and transparency to the mattress industry.
Quality Product, Fair Prices, No Gimmicks
JT and Daehee wanted to keep things simple: they use top quality products, but keep their markups low so their customers can enjoy a great mattress for a fraction of the cost of other high end mattresses.
Made with Care in the USA
Tuft and Needle mattresses are designed and made in the US, and their fabrics are purchased from a 90 year old family owned textile mill in the Carolinas.
In addition to donating all returned mattresses to local charities, Tuft and Needle also provides new mattresses to charities in their area.
T&N Adaptive® Foam: An Innovative New Mattress Material
No latex, memory foam, springs, or egg crate foam. Unsatisfied with the materials available on the market, Tuft and Needle decided to create their own, and the end results was their innovative Adaptive® Foam. This is their own material, so you won’t find anything else like it on the market!
Its most unique feature is that it adapts to your individual body, so you’ll get the perfect amount of firmness to you- the more pressure you apply, the more it adapts to support you.
3 Ways to Keep You Cool
The Adaptive® Foam works in three ways to keep you cool. Its heat wicking properties draw heat in and then gel and graphite work to disperse heat away from your body; the fabric is highly breathable, allowing for easy airflow; and the firm support layer holds you close to the surface of the mattress, keeping you from sinking in too deeply and overheating.
Your Mattress Arrives in a Tube
For convenient shipping, your mattress will arrive compressed into a tube. This makes is easy to get around tight corners and up stairways.
To open, simply place the roll on your bed, remove the plastic, and unroll. Your mattress will be fully expanded within 2-3 hours.
Made from a blend of polyester and Tactel, the cover is soft and comfortable and dries 6-8x faster than cotton, meaning it helps to keep you cool while you sleep. The cover is certified by OEKO_TEX®, meaning it is free of any harmful chemicals.
Unlike most mattresses on the market, the Tuft and Needle mattress has just two layers. The top layer is made of 3” of their Adaptive® Foam (see above for details).
7” polyurethane foam provides a thick supportive base.
10 Year Warranty
Tuft and Needle offers a 10 year warranty on their mattresses and covers.
