Royal-Pedic and Its History

Royal-Pedic was founded by Abe Kaplan who learned and mastered high end mattress making during the 1930's to mid 1940's at the heals of London. In 1946, Kaplan set out for America and shortly after settling in Los Angeles, Kaplan's mattress business began to blossom.

Royal-Pedic soon became the premier choice for many Los Angeles based interior design firms. For nearly four decades that Abe and his partner Steve owned Royal Pedic, they had manufactured mattresses for numerous amounts of clients, including many celebrities like NBA star Wilt Chamberlain and six U.S. Presidents including John F . Kennedy and Ronald Reagan.

Then, in 1984, Royal-Pedic was purchased by the Kelemen family, who to this day diligently continue the tradition the high standards of Royal-Pedic. Royal-Pedic has expanded their offering of mattresses to include natural latex mattresses, pillowtop mattresses, pillowtop pads, and organic cotton mattresses to give customers that level of comfort and preferences with many varieties to choose from.

Here are some of the mattresses that are produced with comfort by Royal-Pedic:

Royal-Pedic Mattresses

Royal-Pedic All Cotton Mattress: This mattress is considered the firmest mattress when used without a pillowtop pad and the thickness ranges from 8"-8 ½" thick.

Royal-Pedic Pillowtop Mattress: This mattress is right in the middle between firm and plush with a thickness of 13 ½"-14" thick. This mattress offers support, yet with a plush surface feel with its attached pillowtop pads.

Royal-Pedic Quilt-Top Mattress: This mattress is more on the firm side with a mattress thickness of 13 inches. This mattress has 85% more coils than the standard. The coils are unknotted, open ended and has more flexibility which means greater sensitivity to the body.

Royal-Pedic Cloud Pillowtop Mattress: This is the top of the line mattress with nearly three times more natural latex cushioning than the Royal-Pedic Pillowtop Mattress. This mattress gives more of a light cloud like feeling for a sooth comfort throughout your whole body.

Royal-Pedic Latex Quilt-Top Mattress: This mattress is different because it has the 7-zone natural latex which combines shoulder and hip flexibility with the correct support for the lower back. This mattress supports the spine in a natural comfortable position unlike soft or hard mattresses.

Royal-Pedic Latex Mattress: This mattress is more on the firm side with a mattress thickness of 9 inches. This is a firmer 7-zoner latex version. It features the same European designed, 7-zone natural latex mattress core as the quilt-top mattress does.

Royal-Pedic Pillowtop Pads: The pillowtop provides extra cushioning, luxurious comfort and additional pressure point relief. The pillowtop pad lays right on top of the mattress. Then the mattress pad and fitted sheet go over both the pillowtop pad and the mattress itself holding the pad in place.

Organic mattresses are made to help with the many allergies that people maintain, for example people who are hypo-allergenic. For people who have environmental allergies or even chemical sensitivities are encouraged to get the organic mattresses. The standard organic mattress requires a doctor's note for purchase because it does not contain any flame-retardant chemicals; however, you may order the Royal-Pedic Organic Cotton Mattress with a wool wrap without a doctor's note since the hypoallergenic wool acts as a natural flame retardant and meets all fire safety codes.
