Head Springs Depot's Meet the Makers: Southerland Mattresses

Here at Head Springs Depot, we pride ourselves on choosing the best products from the best makers in the business. We carefully hand-select every item with your style and comfort in mind, in addition to ensuring the highest quality and sustainability practices are adhered to throughout the manufacturing process. 

With that being said, we couldn’t be more proud to be your local shop for Southerland Mattresses. There are so many things we love about this company, from their local connection to Nashville to their perfect sleep systems, and everything in between. We’re excited to tell you more about their company and why YOU should be sleeping on Southerland. 

Southerland’s History

Southerland has been creating fine quality bedding for over 120 years with each mattress being made right here in the USA. Their story begins in 1893 when founder J.D. Southerland began Swann Bedding Company in Evansville, Indiana. In 1924, he acquired Nashville Spring and Mattress Company in Nashville, Tennessee, before continuing to make more acquisitions over the next 30 years, leading to the official formation of Southerland, Inc. Nashville continues to be a key city for Southerland, as home to their headquarters and one of their production and distribution facilities nationwide. 

Quality Assurance

Southerland goes above and beyond industry standards when it comes to producing their top-of-the-line products. Their innovative manufacturing methods, state-of-the-art equipment and highly trained and skilled production team are key in building better products at a greater value for their customers. 

All foams are 100% pre-stressed and cut in-house to increase durability and softness while ensuring a “like-new” bed feeling over a long period of time. These materials are also rigorously tested and certified by CertiPUR-US® to be free of heavy metals and harsh chemicals. 

In addition, Southerland upholds a stringent Quality Assurance Program that includes two 75-point tear-down inspections per shift. Their thorough scans not only ensure proper builds, but also that each product is completely inspected prior to shipping to meet customer satisfaction. 

Despite offering some of the best non-prorated warranties in the industry, Southerland boasts fewer than 1% product warranty returns, a true testament to their standards and quality. 

Meet the Makers

What’s truly remarkable about Southerland are their employees who create these incredible products that we use in our homes every day. Behind every stitch, there is a story of how these products came to be. Our team had the honor of visiting Southerland’s headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee to get to know more about the team and processes behind some of our favorite sleep products. We had the pleasure of meeting a senior upholstery technician who has lived in East Nashville her whole life and worked for Southerland for over 36 years. Can you imagine the impact her work has had on millions of Americans and the importance of their sleep? This is what we find rewarding about hand-selecting real products made by real people to bring into your home.
