Wright, a new line of mattresses and bedding products produced in the state of Georgia, has launched. The brand has released a 500-thread-count Supima cotton sheet set that includes a flat sheet, a fitted sheet and two pillowcases made of long-staple cotton grown in Arizona and California, where the sheets are also sewn. Wright is also selling pillows and duvets made of duck down purchased from farms in the Midwest and manufactured in Ohio. In addition, the company has partnered with Brooklyn-based textile designer Caroline Z Hurley.
“We built Wright with an appreciation for American craftsmanship and ingenuity,” says founder Dan Hauber, who worked in the mattress industry prior to the company’s founding. “And we strive to live up to that legacy with thoughtful design and lasting products for the most important spaces in our customers’ lives.”
The signature Wright 1.27 mattress was developed over two years and after 26 prototypes; the final version is constructed of five layers of viscoelastic memory foam. The top layer consists of 1.5 inches of high-density memory foam, the next two layers are made of temperature-responsive foam, and the base is designed to offer ergonomic support. A twin mattress retails for $1,180, a full for $1,530, a queen for $1,785, a king for $2,240, and a California king for $2,240.
“We spend a third of our lives in bed. It’s where we recharge and reset, making it one of the most important elements of our personal space,” says Hauber. “With that in mind, a mattress should empower you to wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day.”
Wright's temporary showroom, open until January 2016, is located at 188 Lafayette St., New York, NY.
