The McRoskey Mattress Company, established in San Francisco in 1899 and renowned as one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of hand-crafted, ultra-premium mattresses and box springs, has taken a page from its illustrious history to create its finest mattresses ever.

The McRoskey family has been perfecting the art of sleep comfort since Edward L. McRoskey and his brother Leonard opened their San Francisco factory in 1899. Quietly and without fanfare, McRoskey became the mattress of choice of the most discerning clientele, first in San Francisco and today all over the world, including an impressive but never-to-be-revealed roster of celebrity devotees.
“We’re one of San Francisco’s best kept secrets,” noted Robin McRoskey Azevedo, president and third-generation owner of the McRoskey Mattress Company, “except for the tens of thousands of people who wouldn’t dream of sleeping on anything else.”
McRoskey remains one of only a handful of mattress companies that designs and manufactures its own mattresses – each hand-crafted and made to order. Moreover, McRoskey manufactures in-house almost every mattress and box spring component from its steel spring coils to the exacting blend of lush filling materials, and all cotton ticking ensuring each mattress is made to the highest standards for comfort, durability and aesthetics.
McRoskey builds three lines. Each Natural Tufted, Classic Tufted and Basic Tufted mattress features 100 percent cotton ticking, enhanced filling materials, and updated tufting techniques. McRoskey Mattress Company continues to use top-quality natural and man-made materials that can be fully recycled at the product’s end of life.
On May 1, 1931, Edward L. McRoskey filed his first patent for the McRoskey Tufting Machine, designed to make the tufts stronger, ease the arduous needle work of the mattress makers, and significantly increase the durability of the mattress. Today the company continues to build a two-sided, tufted mattress, a construction technique — now abandoned by most manufacturers — that results in lasting comfort. In 2016, the company introduced new tufting machinery to its shop floor allowing for operator ease and a yet stronger tuft.
“New equipment passes for big excitement at McRoskey,” said McRoskey Azevedo. “So we decided to tell the world.”
McRoskey Mattress Company has two showrooms in the Bay Area – San Francisco and Palo Alto – open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 12 noon to 5 p.m. Their mattresses are also on display at custom furniture showrooms including Made in Pescadero and Berkeley Mills.

“With nearly 120 years of satisfied McRoskey customers, we are proud of the quality materials we continue to use and the construction techniques we continue to employ,” said McRoskey Azevedo. “Our company has never been tempted to stray from the proven mattress and box spring construction principles that provide true, enduring value.”
