3 Showrooms You Can Almost Sleep In

Don’t be embarrassed—put up your feet and rest your head on that pillow. These mattress showrooms are meant for lying down in.


Have you ever visited a showroom, and thought: I am going to ignore that “Please Do Not Sit/Lie Down” sign and just dive right in?  Many furniture showrooms are styled this way—to look so lived in, and so inviting, that you might as well call it home. That is probably what customers thought in IKEA China when they decided to rest comfortably in the store’s various sofas, beds, and even dining tables, as seen in this post. They have since banned such behavior in their Beijing branch.

Bed and mattress showrooms are another thing altogether. They are meant to be cozy, and customers are encouraged to actually lie down on the beds to test which mattress is right for their tastes (and backs). Here are three showrooms that are designed to have customers come in and test the merchandise by kicking off their shoes and lying down. A salesperson at one of them mentioned that a customer once completely dozed off, but once awake, purchased a mattress since she enjoyed it so much!

Don’t be caught being this cozy in a furniture showroom, but these folks at IKEA China don’t seem to mind.

Sealy Sleep Boutique

The Sealy beddings brand is more than 130 years old, but they are moving into modern times with the PostureTechâ Titanium Coil, a patented technology that provides correct spinal alignment when you sleep.

Their newly opened 112sqm flagship store in Shangri-la Plaza exudes a calming, Zen-like vibe with their ambient lighting and rows upon rows of cozy mattresses you can test yourself.

Check them out at Level 5, Main Wing, Shangri-la Plaza Mandaluyong.

Dexterton Mattress Gallery

You have the choice of the Swedish Viking beds or the US brand Simmons in Dexterton’s Greenbelt showroom.

We’re especially fond of the luxurious Viking bed, which can be automated to recline—independently on both sides—to suit your best sleeping or lounging position.

The Uratex Premium Mattress Gallery

Located on the second floor of the hip and artsy Ronac Center, over 20-plus types of quality mattresses of various affordable-to-luxe price points are laid out in this expansive showroom. Also on offer are Technogel pillows from Italy, and their new Perfect Serenity Aura mattresses.

When you’re done with your bedroom shopping, check out the funky SIXINCH furniture, Secret Fresh gallery, and dine at Charlie’s Grind and Grill in the same building.

Uratex Premium Mattress Gallery, Ronac Art Center, Ortigas Ave., Greenhills, San Juan.
