Pottery Barn to Offer Leesa Mattresses Online, Building on Success with West Elm

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (December 6, 2017) – Pottery Barn, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE: WSM) portfolio of brands, announces its partnership with Leesa Sleep, a leader in the emerging direct-to-consumer online mattress industry founded with a powerful social mission. Starting today, Pottery Barn customers can purchase Leesa’s American-made and expertly designed mattresses online at PotteryBarn.com/Leesa, marking Leesa’s growing partnership with Williams-Sonoma, Inc. after a successful launch with West Elm in September. As with West Elm, Pottery Barn shares Leesa’s commitment to the community and, as part of the expansion, the brands will join forces to give Leesa mattresses and Pottery Barn sheet sets to San Francisco’s Episcopal Community Services’ housing program at The Hillsdale, and will continue to donate one mattress for every 10 sold as a part of Leesa’s One-Ten Social Impact Program.

“We know a good night’s sleep is important to our customer’s quality of life and we’re a leader when it comes to helping customers create a relaxing, comfortable bedroom,” said Pottery Barn President, Marta Benson. “Leesa mattresses provide our customers with an expertly designed option for the best sleep possible and they can feel good about the positive impact their purchase will have in local communities across the country.”

Pottery Barn’s commitment to quality products and customer experience are complemented by Leesa’s focus on superior comfort, great value and convenient, compact shipping from U.S. manufacturing centers. Leesa mattresses feature a unique, multi-layer construction, offering a cool, comfortable yet supportive and restorative sleep experience, developed to improve quality of sleep. Additionally, Leesa’s social impact strategy aligns with Pottery Barn’s commitment to responsible retail practices. Leesa’s strategy is anchored by three signature programs:

  • The One-Ten program donates one mattress for every ten sold to nonprofits helping people seeking refuge from homelessness, domestic risk and human trafficking – Leesa has donated more than 22,000 to date
  • The One-Earth program plants one tree for every mattress sold – Leesa has made a commitment to plant 1 million trees by 2025
  • The Leesa One-Community program supports local communities through volunteering and donations

“Our mission at Leesa is to elevate lives through better sleep with both thoughtfully designed and carefully crafted mattresses and other sleep products. We are thrilled to extend our partnership to Pottery Barn expanding on the success of our recent West Elm relationship,” said Leesa co-founder and CEO David Wolfe. “Both Pottery Barn and West Elm share our desire to measure success not just by our financial performance but by the impact we have in our communities. Together we will move a step closer to our goal of ending bedlessness, ensuring anyone seeking refuge in a shelter will always find a warm and comfortable bed where they can rest their minds, bodies and souls, and dream of a better tomorrow.”

On December 14, Pottery Barn will participate in Leesa Sleep’s Dreams Project at a giving event for Episcopal Community Services’ housing program at The Hillsdale which provides permanent supportive housing to 85 residents in San Francisco. The Dreams Project consists of a series of giving events that began in November and continue through December in 10 cities around the country. The Dreams Project has allowed the Leesa team to assess the needs of organizations and provide valuable insights about the complexities of homelessness along with ways to support communities in need nationwide.

To purchase a Leesa mattress through Pottery Barn, customers can order online with free shipping and a 100-night, risk-free trial, and no-hassle returns. For more information about Pottery Barn and Leesa, please visit PotteryBarn.com/Leesa.
