Marshall to release photo book
TORONTO – High-end Canadian manufacturer Marshall Mattress will unveil a new archival photo book illustrating the early history of the company’s history at the upcoming winter edition of the Las Vegas Market.
Entitled Marshall Mattress: The Illustrated History of the World’s First Pocket Coil Spring Mattress, the book explores the origins of the pocket coil spring mattress through archival photography and iconic advertisements spanning the first sixty-five years of its company history. Company founder James Marshall invented the pocket coil spring mattress system in 1900.
“The original Marshall Mattress patent was granted for both mattresses and cushions. Though there is a global familiarity with the term Marshall Coil, the company’s origins are less known,” says Bradley Warner, president and managing partner of Marshall Mattress. “Marshall’s mattresses were heralded as the world’s best mattresses with innovative design from the outset. Marshall bedding products furnished the British Cunard line’s luxury liners such as the Olympic, Titanic, Lusitania and Mauretania, along with placement in the finest hotels.
“We are excited to begin opening our archives and sharing our company history and its impact on the mattress and furniture industries through the invention of the Marshall Pocket Coil spring,” he added.
Marshall Mattress soft-launched its showroom, located in space 922 of Building ‘B’ of the World Market Center during the summer 2017 of the market. It features both the Portfolio and Luxury collections in addition to the premium Bespoke collection.
The five-model Bespoke by Marshall Collection is centred on the original hand-tufted bedding and finishing style developed at the turn of the 20th century. These models incorporate eucalyptus, New Zealand wool, cotton and natural latex, along with Marshall Mattress’ patented, cotton-wrapped pocket spring system, resulting in luxurious comfort and a temperature-ambience ideal for restful sleep.
All Marshall Mattress products are handcrafted without foam encasement or gels, using the best of natural and new manmade materials.
The company is also set to introduce new collections in 2018. The winter edition of the Las Vegas Market opens for its usual five-day run on January 28.
