Leggett & Platt VertiCoil Edge

Leggett & Platt, the brains behind VertiCoil Edge innersprings, got its start way back in 1883 when Leggett invented a most excellent bedspring and Platt figured out a way to make a lot of them at one time. The company has experienced great success since then, and not simply because it sells products for something that everybody on planet Earth does almost every day – sleep. Leggett & Platt has found a niche as a bedding innovator, and one of its latest developments is the VertiCoil Edge innerspring.

What's an innerspring? Glad you asked. Here's the clinical definition: The steel springy things that sit in between the fluffy stuff in your mattress. The job of innersprings is to provide the heart of the mattress – the support that makes for comfortable sleep. And if you think all innersprings are the same, you probably haven't had a good sleep in a while. VertiCoil Edge innersprings were designed specifically to firm and respond to bodyweight and the natural movements you make when you're sleeping and, say, dreaming about winning the Kentucky Derby.

Mattresses with VertiCoil Edge also give you more coils, providing better support from the top of the mattress all the way to the edges. And in contrast to foam, VertiCoil Edge innersprings sleep cool, which research says is crucial to sleeping well. Basically, it offers a bunch of ways to help you sleep better. The way we see it, VertiCoil Edge = good sleep = happy life.

Some of the L&P family is involved with the Better Sleep Council, an organization “devoted to educating the public about the importance of sleep to good health and quality of life and about the value of the sleep system and sleep environment in pursuit of a good night's sleep.” They’ve also produced a great webseries entitled “Suite 7”...check it out!.
