‘The practical application of knowledge and scientific principles in the design, construction, and selection of products, materials, and environments that enhance human sleep’.
In mastering Sleep Engineering we determined that in addition to the practical and technical, our definition needed to go further. We focus on advanced technical performance and functionality, but supplemented with a further critical element that is so relevant to sleep and yet so difficult to define.
That soothing feeling of mental and physical indulgence; enveloping oneself every night in wonderful luxuriating comfort. We believe it is part of the totality of sleep. Just as we regard, sound, smell and the creation of your bedroom sanctuary as core elements to the notion of Sleep Engineering.
Use our iconography below to explore and learn about the innovations, functions and technology of Sleep Engineering that allow us to deliver better sleep to you.

Whichever of those is important to you, hopefully all of them, ergonomic adjustablity transforms your bed into something more, and brings a flexibility and range of uses to that will change your sleep and bedroom lifestyle for the better. This key technology represents a new age and a new perception of what a modern bed can be.A technical evolution to suit modern lifestyle.
Choosing the right pillow is one of the most important aspects of creating the best possible sleep for you. It is not only a matter of comfort preference; the right pillow also depends on what position you most commonly sleep in, and the metrics of your individual sizing, particularly neck length and shoulder width. When we assist our clients in finding the right pillow, achieving spinal alignment is paramount, as is maximising your airflow for healthy comfortable sleep. If you are a back sleeper, we salute you! Back sleeping is widely acknowledged to be the best position for long term sleep and wellbeing. Optimised breathing, spinal care, and pressure reduction are all benefitted by back sleeping. It is something we should all try and do, so the question really is why don’t we? The answer is because it is not comfortable enough for most of us, which in our opinion is a result of improper mattresses, pillows, and bed bases. The key to using a pillow for back sleeping is that it has to support your head upwards (ever tried lying flat on your back without a pillow? Ow!), but it must not take your head too far upwards. It has to be just right. So there is no, ‘one size fits all’, and as with most pillows, it is a function of your size, and your comfort preference for firm, hard, or responsive cushioning.
It is commonplace to focus attention in terms of sleep comfort entirely on the mattress. In reality the feel of the mattress is significantly determined (and can be transformed) by the base upon which it rests. The Box Spring is a Continental classic, the norm across Europe. It provides an additional layer of springs within the base, allowing for your chosen mattress to work in harmony with the bed base for complete contouring and responsiveness.
Creating the perfect bedroom environment is a very important part of the totality of your sleep experience. At Rested every bed frame that we offer is available in an extensive choice of fabrics, extending across colour, texture and feel. In most cases we offer the chance to detail your bed with multiple fabrics, piping options and even customised embroidery. We are also able to upholster all of our beds and sleep systems in client provided fabrics. To try and keep our selection process as efficient as possible, we have worked with our partner brands to offer all of the fabric ranges without alteration to the price. So that you can choose whatever inspires you on aesthetics alone.
There is no reason, other than good fortune, that you and your partner would find ultimate comfort in the same mattress. We are individuals, we have different body sizes and weights, different sleep temperatures, and different comfort preferences. Our comfort select mattresses are an exceptional innovation that allows you and your partner to create a seamless mattress with a different firmness and feel to each side. Perfect sleep awaits you both......
The logic of Sleep Engineering dictates that regardless of whether you sleep on your front, back or side, we create a 'pressure' map on the mattress. Greater pressure is naturally exerted at our hips and shoulder zones; which needs to be reduced for comfort, but it is those high pressure zones that also require the greatest underlying support in order to achieve spinal alignment. Our advanced mattresses and beds have been created with this zonal approach. This means differentiating the materials, firmnesses and construction techniques used in defining those zones so as to provide dynamicsleep systems that suit the contours of the body, and are individualised to your size and weight.
We offer our sleep systems with the chance to choose whether to have a wired or wireless remote, depending on your preference. There are advantages to both, which we are delighted to allow you to experience in store, and as ever, it will be your personal choice as to what works best for you.
Mattresses with dual sided capability are normally differentiated by slightly differing comfort feels between top and bottom of the mattress. This innovation allows the user to make the final 'tweak' to achieve true sleep comfort themselves. It also recognises that as individuals we are never static. Our mattresses are designed to last for up to ten years and beyond, and in that time, body weight may change as may your comfort preference. Dual sided mattresses provide the opportunity to ensure that whatever your preference or requirement, your mattress has the flexibility to continue to perform for you.
Differentiating the two sides of a pillow allows the user the final 'tweak' on a daily basis to ensure that your pillow is optimised for you. Whether you prefer a smooth flat feel, or a gently contoured feel is down to you, and these pillows recognise that to have choice is a performance advancement.
Designed and engineered exclusively for Rested, our signature ‘Equilibrium’ pillow cover blends the elegance of true luxury with advanced technology. We wanted to create a product that can positively improve our clients sleep experience. The result is a direct reflection of our core values: an equilibrium of luxury, technology, and nature, working together for better sleep.
Luxury: The outer fabric is an exceptional combination of the majesty of pure silk and the advanced luxury of Micro Modal. Presented in a unique flowing design, the feel of the cover is sublime against the skin, responding with indulgence and pure pleasure.
Technology: Behind the surface, ‘Equilibrium’ incorporates a woven carbon yarn known as ‘Intense’. It is woven within the fabric and naturally captures and diffuses your body’s daily electrical charge and eliminates static. The diffusion allows your body to reach a neutral electrical equilibrium, in harmony with the earth, that is scientifically linked to a reduction in cortisol and tension, thereby increasing sleep quality, duration, and daily recovery. In addition the pillow is completely anti-static and actively repels dust and bacteria.
Nature: Each Equilibrium pillow is finished with a natural probiotic treatment that eliminates allergens, and prevents the production of bacteria and harmful organisms.
Other than the obvious aesthetics and modernism of floating design beds, there are sleep benefits to be had as well. Floating beds allow for airflow to circulate all around you whilst you sleep. There is a complex interplay of temperature and humidity changes occurring around your bed, both as heat rises from the floor below, your own body temperature changes, and the fact that ambient bedroom temperatures generally decline as the night progresses. Floating beds allow this interplay to take place in the most efficient, unrestricted manner, making your sleep as healthy as possible. Allowing airflow makes your bed environment a less attractive place for dust mites and for allergens to settle, as opposed to a stifling non aerated bed which would be their ultimate heaven! Floating beds also allow for better hygiene as you have the ability to keep the space under your bed clean, easily hoovered, and free of dust and debris. For sleeping clean, fresh, and well ventilated, there is no better solution.
Choosing the right pillow is one of the most important aspects of creating the best possible sleep for you. It is not only a matter of comfort preference; the right pillow also depends on what position you most commonly sleep in, and the metrics of your individual sizing, particularly neck length and shoulder width. When we assist our clients in finding the right pillow, achieving spinal alignment is paramount, as is maximising your airflow for healthy comfortable sleep. Front sleeping is the most awkward of sleeping positions, and in relation to sleep posture and back care, it is the most difficult to deal with. There are two key aspects to assisting front sleeping for those who acknowledge it as their most comfortable sleep position. Firstly to ensure that the pillow does not force the head upwards, placing stress upon the neck and spine. A slim pillow is the most likely way to achieve this effectively. Secondly, to ensure that the pillow allows you to breathe. Many front sleepers find that they have to sleep ‘at the edge’ of the pillow, otherwise it would be impossible to breathe, so a front sleeper benefits from pillows that don’t bulk up around the indentation of your head. The Slim Equilibrium has been designed to do both of these things, and subject to your specific metrics and comfort preferences, it is an excellent solution for most front sleepers.
Your headboard is visually the most dominant feature of your bedroom. It plays a significant role in the aesthetics of your sleep environment. In each of our ranges we offer significant numbers of headboard designs so that you can choose a look and ambience that are relevant to the improvement of your sleep. Dimensions and fabric selections affect the feel and texture of your sleep experience and a well designed headboard can contribute to both the physical and mental aspects of sleep perfection. We welcome custom designs and part of our service is to ensure that we can create the headboard of your dreams.

At Rested, we have been quick to state that removable washable covers are an important feature that all highest tier mattresses should benefit from. We wash our sheets with great regularity, so why would we accept a mattress fabric that we can not also wash? Improving your hygiene and sleep environment (and therefore your sleep quality), reducing allergens, and preserving the longevity of your mattress, we believe it to be a feature that is a mark of quality. We also feel that it gives our clients confidence and peace of mind to see inside their mattress, and the craftsmanship and materials used in the creation of the worlds best mattresses.
When your bed linen fits like a glove, with a completely wrinkle free appearance, to the extent that it looks like perfection, that is what we call the 'showcase fit'. This is something that is achieved by virtue of the sizing, stretch qualities, and materials used in our jersey sheet ranges, and best of all, it is achieved without having to iron your sheets.
Choosing the right pillow is one of the most important aspects of creating the best possible sleep for you. It is not only a matter of comfort preference; the right pillow also depends on what position you most commonly sleep in, and the metrics of your individual sizing, particularly neck length and shoulder width. When we assist our clients in finding the right pillow, achieving spinal alignment is paramount, as is maximising your airflow for healthy comfortable sleep. Side sleeping is the most common sleeping position. Our perspective is that the loft (i.e the height), the edge contouring, and the firmness are the principal factors relevant to a good side sleeping pillow. It is critical that the pillow be the right height/loft for your individual shape, to keep your head supported and spine aligned. This is affected by both the width of your shoulders, and the extent to which you mattress is absorbing your shoulder zone. If you can find the right height, then comfort can be a matter of preference as to the degree of firmness, bounce, and response of the pillow with the purpose of keeping your head supported at the right elevation. For side sleeping, the pillow needs to ‘fit’ within the gap of your neck (to your shoulder), and therefore the shape and side contouring of the pillow can deliver a wonderfully snug fit, and absolute perfection for side sleeping.
We offer various different slatted bases in our range. Using slats is a common 'support' technique that allows for ventilation by design, and when tensioned, for the whole bed surface to respond to your body and pressure map. Slats come in all manner of materials, but at Rested we are focussed on utilising slats that have been designed with longevity in mind. So whether they are aluminium, or carbon fibre, we know that what defines quality is their ability to last.
As you raise the back adjustment of an ergonomic bed, typically this will move your body forwards and away from your headboard and bedside table. Recognising that it would be an 'enhancement' if this could be improved, many of our beds incorporate a 'slide back' system that automatically moves your bed platform backwards whilst it rises, thus ensuring that you stay next to your bedside tables, and to your partner.
Good ventilation is at the heart of healthy revitalising sleep. Where we mark our products as 'total ventilation' it indicates that every aspect of the product has been considered with ventilation in mind, and therefore every material, surface, and construction has been provided with total breathability and complete airflow. Not only is total ventilation the easiest way to regulate temperature, but it is also the best way to decrease microbial/allergen/dust/mites activity.
