Yes Virginia, Two-Sided (Flippable) Mattresses Do Exist!
That’s right what is old is new once again. Two sided mattresses largely fell out of favor as the corporate raiders and equity banks took over the big name brands over the last 25 years. With some market research and high dollar Madison Avenue marketing, you were told you don’t need a mattress that:
- Extends comfort life
- Increases durability
- Spreads out wear and tear evenly
Fast forward to present day the big name brands have lost their way, and most of the industry has followed. We work closely with family owned companies, two of them in fact, that have over 200 years of tenure making mattresses within the same two families. In fact our premier partner Gold Bond has the fifth generation leading the company alongside his father today.
So if you’re looking for an innserspring mattress made with quality components that you can turn head to toe, flip over and rotate it we are your one and only stop in Lancaster County. We have over twenty two-sided mattress options on display.
Mattress Tech, founded in 2012 by two industry veterans with over eighty years of experience in manufacturing, developing, and selling mattresses, has a family heritage of producing quality mattresses since 1925. Their mattresses are designed to exceed the industry standard at every level. The owners are “hands-on” in every aspect of their business. They manufacture mattresses the “old fashioned” way. Jeff and Ben at Gardner's designed the Mattress Tech models below!

Gold Bond Two Sided Mattresses
A Family Mission to Build the Most Comfortable Mattresses
Bob Naboicheck, President of Gold Bond Mattress, tells customers and employees alike that they are all part of a special family tradition. “Quality and superior service,” he says. “It has been and will be our tradition.” It is a practice that started in 1899 when Gold Bond founder Isadore Naboicheck began blending his own cotton and making mattresses in a four-story brick building near the Connecticut River in Hartford, Connecticut. Isadore set out to build the region’s most comfortable mattresses–a novel idea in times when mattresses were mostly regarded as “lumpy”.
There were no national mattress brands back then. But Hartford was the richest city in the nation, peopled by the likes of Mark Twain and gun maker Samuel Colt, and host to insurance companies like Aetna and The Travelers. Opportunities abounded, and Isadore capitalized on them. By the end of World War II, Gold Bond was delivering mattresses throughout the eastern United States to private homes, leading universities and posh hotels.
In time, with Gold Bond Mattress firmly established as the country’s largest independent mattress maker, son Aaron “Butch” Naboicheck succeeded his father Isadore. Steel innersprings were gaining prominence and national television advertising promoted “brand name” mattresses. But Gold Bond’s commitment to pure cotton and hand-made features never wavered. “It would be easy to take some of the quality out of our mattresses,” Butch said in the mid 1950’s, “but why remove what makes our mattresses great? We’re sticking to what my father started. Our customers expect it.”
The company continued its growth, and that’s when Butch’s son Bob became the third generation of Naboichecks to step onto the factory floor. Together, father and son brought Gold Bond Mattress quality to something brand new–the modern futon.
Originally a thin Japanese mat, Butch and Bob saw that futons in the bedroom, den, office, living room or guest room could be more comfortable and less expensive than rollouts or sofa sleepers. So they made that thin Japanese mat more plush and comfortable. Beginning in the 1980s, futon sofa sleepers took hold, and today they show no signs of slowing down.
The Family Tradition Continues
Today, Bob–along with his son Skip–has ensured that quality and superior service will be as integral a part of Gold Bond’s future as it was part of the company’s past. “As other companies cut corners, we will continue to do what we have always done best,” he says. “It’s what sets Gold Bond Mattress apart in the marketplace. Whether it’s building mattresses or futons, or simply answering the phone and taking care of our customers, Gold Bond is all about exceeding our customer’s expectations.”
