About Comfortaire Mattresses
Comfortaire Mattress Company History
For over 30 years Comfortaire® has been at the cutting edge of sleep innovation and mattress development. Founded in 1981, Comfortaire's aim was to create an adjustable bed, supported by state-of-the-art air bed technology, into the consumer, retail, market. For several generations, Comfortaire® has been providing air supported sleep systems that customize to meet any individual's sleep needs.
Comfortaire's "Air Bed" Technology
The Original Technology™ air mattress design, by Comfortaire, was introduced over thirty years ago. This technology uses air chambers, made of sturdy latex cotton, as support modules at the base of the mattress. Instead of using springs they specialize in sleeping on air. Their original sleep technology is still used today and they continue to innovate and patent new air supported mattress designs. Their most recent patent is the creation of Modern Air Bed Technology™.
This Modern Air Bed Technology™ consists of Box-Top Air™ with an Edge-to-Edge Air™ design to allow for a low profile urethane alloy air chamber positioned near the surface of the mattress. Their patented design allows air to be positioned under your body and minimize the "sagging" feeling you get on other beds. Edge-to-Edge Air™ means that the bed is adjustable all the way to the edge of the mattress. This eliminates the border effect around the edge of the mattress which can be hard and tough to sleep on.
Their latex cotton air bladder is a simple polyethylene bag with a baffle, multiple chambers of latex with bonded cotton on the outer surface. Above the air chambers they have a layer of foam for added cushioning. The air chambers, top and sidewall foam all sit inside a removable two piece cover that looks like the outside of a standard innerspring mattress. These high-end luxury Air Beds are also known as soft sided Air Beds.

Fairly Good mattressAlthough this is a bottom barrel mattress and the least expensive it is just as good as or better than my innerspring mattress. I put a memory foam topper on top and I started liking the mattress a whole lot more. I saved money by buying the cheapest mattress and putting a memory foam topper on the top of it.
Sleeping much better nowthis has been a great purchase for us. the bed adjust on both sides and my husband seems to not snore as much. I love this bed because it is SOOO MUCH more comfortable than our old innerspring mattress.
Long time Comfortaire CustomerPros: The Comfortaire is much better supported and the thicker padding in the pillowtop makes for a more luxurious bed. The stitching is better on the cover. The foam is thicker. It also costs less, although I noticed it's catching up a bit from when I purchaser
Cons: I once had to replace an air chamber when it developed a slow leak, and the replacement was rushed right out within a couple of days. Couldn't have been easier and the support staff was friendly and very helpful. My first air bed was a Select Comfort
Other Thoughts: I'm a long time customer of Comfortaire, and I'm happy to say that after 14+ years, my bed is just as comfortable as it was when I first purchased it! I still fall asleep immediately. Great Customer Services!!!!

Comfortaire roll out new products in High Point
BedTimes, May 2011 By Barbara Nelles
Comfortaire unveils new ‘total store concept’
In April, airbed maker Comfortaire, a division of Park Place with headquarters in Greenville, S.C., cut the ribbon on a new High Point Market showroom at the International Home Furnishings Center in High Point, N.C.
The company, which introduced the airbed concept in 1981, offers a core group of seven airbed models.
Showing off David Karr, president of Comfortaire, highlights the ‘total store concept’ the company Displayed in its new High Point, N.C., showroom.
“This is a business that is driven by technology and ours is head and shoulders above the rest,” said Jimmy Orders, Park Place president. “This ‘total store concept’ is just the next step in Comfortaire’s evolution.”
The showroom was filled with new display options for retailers. Glass partitions, textural room dividers and wall graphics were interspersed with flat-panel screens playing video loops—all designed to create a sense of relaxation and of privacy. Graphics employed large-scale lifestyle imagery and messaging—“The Mattress as Individual as You”—that underscores the brand’s customization and personalization promise.
The total store concept is flexible and “rearrangeable,” said Comfortaire President David Karr. Retailers could start with as few as two beds and point-of-purchase materials for about $2,000 or have a more elaborate setup with multiple beds and the larger store fixtures.Watch Video Now
