The Billy set features a brilliant mattress with bright bold stripes in contemporary colours that decorate the sleeping surface of this highly modern-looking children's bed. This is coupled with a cool-looking co-ordinating divan base and headboard to complete the stylish look. The core of the mattress is made using the supportive Airsprung Supercoil spring unit, giving just the right amount of support just where it's needed. Layers of soft fillings top the spring unit offering excellent cushioning to aid better sleep.
In 1871 Hedley Chapman founded a mattress factory in Trowbridge, Wiltshire or to be more precise, he began to manufacture straw palliases at the very reasonable price of 3s 6d a pair. He was a firm believer in quality and value for money and as a result the company went from strength to strength. In the early 1900s as mass produced mattresses became more sophisticated, so did the processes by which they were made and a programme of modernisation was introduced which ensured that the company was always at the forefront of technology.
