Bolland & Branch

Boll & Branch planted a seed of change to create the best sheets in the world. Boll & Branch was founded in 2014 with a simple mission: produce sheets that feel good, inside and out. After coming up empty-handed to questions about the quality and origin of an in-store bed sheet, Scott and Missy Tannen realized they were onto something; so, they began to dig. What they unearthed was an industry that needed change. By selling directly online to the consumer, they eliminate the cost of the middleman and retail space, saving you money and ensuring you’re purchasing nothing but the highest quality blankets, bedding and bath. They go a step further by tracing back to the origin of our cotton, so you and your family feel confident knowing our products are authentic, pure and chemical-free. They seal means more than just meticulous craftsmanship. It means economic opportunity for the farmers and factory workers that dedicate their lives to the cultivation and manufacturing of cotton textiles. It means each product was made with respect for the human and environmental resources that make it possible.

Brent Wood Home

For over 30 years, we’ve been making mattresses and home essentials with a team of local artisans and fabricators in Los Angeles. From the beginning, they’ve obsessed over creating products using healthy and ethically-sourced materials, all inspired by our love for the natural world and our home in California. “We strongly believe our environment, especially our homes, are at the center of our well-being, allowing us to live comfortable, happy lives.” However, before they started the Brentwood Home brand, most of our products were sold by retailers who added hefty markups, often times more than doubling the cost of our products. In 2012, with much thanks to the digital age, they saw an opportunity to bring that California comfort and craftsmanship directly to you. That’s why they started Brentwood Home. No more overwhelming trips to the store or pushy salespeople. No middlemen. No deceptive retailer markups. This, combined with their handcrafting excellence, allows them to provide you with luxurious goods at affordable, honest prices.

Good Morning

For over a century, the mattress industry maintained some of the highest price markups of any consumer products. The industry designed and sold mattresses that were confusing to understand, difficult to compare, and came with unnecessary pressure within uncomfortable sales environments. But ten years ago, things started to change. They designed and shipped our first memory foam mattress in 2009. At the time, buying a mattress online without even being able to try it first was an unthinkable idea. So they created the world’s first in-home, risk-free trial. If you didn’t like your new mattress, we’d pick it up, donate it to someone who needs it and gives you a full refund. But if you did love it, you would get the same premium materials as any luxury store mattress, for substantially less. Soon their ideas and inventions were adopted as the new standard. Now, tens of thousands sleep on their GoodMorning.com mattress every night. And that number grows daily.

Helix Sleep

Helix is a mattress and bedding product manufacturer that offers a wide selection of hybrid beds, most of which were introduced in 2018. The LUXE models are built with a pillow-top layer for extra padding and a gel memory foam comfort layer; a second comfort layer of memory foam or Helix Dynamic Foam is also included. Other components include a high-density polyfoam transitional layer, zoned pocketed coil support cores with multi-gauge coils, high-density foam base layers, and dual-sided polyester covers. Because Helix offers a wide range of thickness and firmness options that accommodate most sleepers regardless of their weight or sleep position. The mattresses also sleep very cool, due in part to strong air circulation through the coil layers. Conforming ability varies by model, but most Helix hybrids contour closely and consistently for added pain/pressure relief and better spinal alignment for side sleepers. The beds also isolate motion fairly well and do not make much noise compared to other hybrids.

James Perse

James Perse grew up in the fashion industry of Los Angeles, and his dedication to quality products shows it. When he was a child, Perse’s father owned a boutique in downtown LA called Maxfield. The family store was at the forefront of innovation in the design realm and contributed to the burgeoning scene in the city. As an adult, Perse took up the torch and carried on the tradition with his own clothing line. As an avid surfer, hockey player, and all-around athlete, Perse’s original passions inspired him to start his own designs. It all began with the baseball hat, which he wore constantly and which he wanted to last through his day-to-day adventures; he started designing high-quality hats that he sold in the Maxfield boutique, and eventually also to film crews and musicians, popularizing them and his name. Perse’s line of simple, clean-cut sundresses and cozy knit sweaters became hits because of his mentality that items can and should be high-quality and casual at the same time.
