Brand Spotlight – Vispring

This month, our spotlight is on Vispring beds.

The origins of Vispring are at the turn of the 20th Century. English engineer James Marshall is working in Canada when his wife falls ill. He created a handmade mattress with coiled springs wrapped in muslin each enclosed in a pocket, with layers of horsehair. The Marshall Sanitary Mattress Company is created!

It’s not until 1901 that the company is incorporated & becomes Vispring = Vi being a reference to the amount of springs in each sewn pocket at this stage.

The quality & bespoke nature of their mattresses attracted the attention of cruise ships of the time, and the White Star Line ship ‘The Olympic’ was fitted with their products in 1911.

When they were developing its sister ship ‘The Titanic’ in 1912, each of its 39 suites & 350 first class cabins included a Vispring mattress.

In the mid 1920’s, Vispring introduced fillings other than horsehair. Cotton, silk & even cashmere were now included in their mattresses.

It wasn’t until 1932 that they came up with the worlds first pocket sprung divan. It was the perfect partner for their iconic mattresses. Vispring is still one of the world leaders for quality divan sets to this day.
