London, UK – August 15, 2018 – Leesa Sleep, the online luxury mattress company and modern home furnishings retailer West Elm today announced an exclusive partnership in the UK, which expands upon the brand alliance which launched in the United States last year.
For the first time in the UK, this partnership enables customers to experience the comfort of a beautifully designed and crafted Leesa mattress at any West Elm UK location including Tottenham Court Road, Westfield London and Kingston Upon Thames, before purchasing it.
Leesa’s recently launched pillow, designed to cool one’s head while keeping the neck and spine aligned, will also be available at all three West Elm stores. The pillows combine with the Leesa mattress to deliver the deep restful sleep that has made Leesa one of the largest sleep companies in the U.S. in under 4 years. The newly-developed pillow incorporates temperature control technology developed for NASA. Both products will be introduced at West Elm’s stores and will continue to be available at Leesa.co.uk
The mattress and the pillows are manufactured in England, enabling the assurance of outstanding quality and consistency, as well as the minimization of carbon footprint.
Leesa’s long-standing policy of providing a 100-night risk free trial will also apply to mattresses and pillows purchased through West Elm stores, giving customers additional peace of mind.
“A lasting partnership requires shared values. Both West Elm and Leesa are organizations with a powerful social mission,” said David Wolfe, Co-Founder and CEO of Leesa Sleep. “Since day one, Leesa has donated one mattress for every ten sold and to-date we have donated over 30,000 mattresses. Our social impact programs make Leesa a different kind of company and to celebrate our partnership with West Elm, we are making an additional donation in London next month when we will be giving 50 mattresses to London-based charity, the Single Homeless Project.”
“We share a mission with Leesa of helping our customers make conscious purchase decisions that can shape their communities and make a difference in their everyday lives at home. We are pleased to extend our partnership with Leesa to the UK and offer our customers another compelling reason to shop for change at their local West Elm UK store,” said West Elm President Alex Bellos.
