Furniture Today begins the process of ranking the Top 15 U.S. Bedding Producers by sending a form to about two dozen bedding producers asking them to supply audited and accountant verified figures for their branded bedding business. The form states that if the producers are unable to meet that requirement, Furniture Today will rank the companies based on an industry survey of bedding producers and suppliers.
This listing is by no means comprehensive and does not represent the entire industry. More than the 15 bedding producers ranked are vital companies within the industry. Furniture Today chooses not to include some companies due to lack of verification of shipment figures.
Furniture Today’s editorial team — which consisted of Executive Editor David Perry, Associate Editor Erin Berg, and Courtney Thabet, manager of Progressive Business Media’s Strategic Insights department — reviewed the list of estimates received for almost two dozen bedding producers. The team weighed estimates by suppliers and by other producers in arriving at its estimates.
