Our Client:

We began making headboards and mattresses around 30 years ago and our aim remains the same: we provide top quality products at the best prices with exemplary service.

We might have expanded to become one of the largest British manufacturers of beds in the country, yet our core operation continues to be the manufacture of divans and mattresses here in Lancashire and this is at the heart of everything we do. We offer eight collections of divans, ranging from top-end luxury beds with diverse benefits to very affordable beds that still maintain specifications guaranteed to ensure comfort. In addition there are headboards, adjustable beds, divan bases and a range of beds for the contract market. Importantly, we have built up a skilled British workforce who manufacture our famously wide range of divans, mattresses, upholstered frames - and upholstery too.

Over the years we've expanded our offer; for instance, we began the in-house manufacture of fabric upholstered beds offered in a selection of colours and designs. Sweet Dreams is proud to have been one of the first companies to introduce side-opening ottoman divan beds to the market and we continually strive to release new innovative products, whether in springs like the Pocket Air system, health-promoting mattress covers or integral storage. One of our biggest successes to date has been the launch of our British-made fabric upholstered TV beds, which were an instant hit on the high street. Our TV beds continue to be bestsellers. Our latest ranges of divans and divan/frame hybrids offer more colour choice as trends swing to the bed becoming a statement of style as well as substance.
