Morpheus was established in 1979 by Tony White. The aim was to produce and make the finest beds and mattresses in the country using the finest materials & skills. To date, Morpheus is one of the very few luxury brands that still make beds and mattresses in England exclusively by hand.
In the early years, Morpheus was operating a dedicated showroom in Tetbury, in the heart of the Cotswolds, with a factory just a stone’s throw away in Nailsworth. Later, a flagship showroom was opened on the world renowned King’s Road in Chelsea, London where it serviced a discerning clientele often the rich and famous.
This was operated until 2006, when the decision was taken to focus on a dedicated factory and onsite showroom, where the customer could see the detail and skill that goes into a Morpheus bed. The factory was then relocated to Bruton, Somerset, employing some of the finest craftsmen and cabinetmakers that the area is renowned for. The tradition now continues in the heart of Somerset in the beautiful village of Hambridge.
English craftsmen have been renowned worldwide for their skill and craftsmanship for many centuries. At Morpheus we continue to employ the best craftsmen available to produce our range of products.
All our wooden beds are made with traditional joinery techniques and using the finest timber available. Each bed frame and mattress is given the utmost attention to detail and is usually made from start to finish by the same craftsman.
At Morpheus, we only use the finest materials in the making of a Morpheus bed. In our wooden bed frames and furniture, we use solid mahogany, cherry, sycamore, rosewood, oak, beech and occasionally walnut.
In our mattresses we use traditional horsehair, cotton, wool, flax, premium pine and beech, steel and down nicely put together in the finest fabrics, damasks and traditional ticking.
