Apartment Therapy is very serious about mattresses, so serious that Maxwell even spent a year in bed. For our next installment of Maker Visits, we journeyed to Newark, New Jersey to visit the 100+ year old factory that produces Shifman Mattresses to take a deep dive into how these very luxurious mattresses are made, step-by-step. Check out the video!

Maker: Mike & Bill Hammer
Company: Shifman Mattresses
Products: Handmade Mattresses
Location: Newark, NJ

Bio: Shifman Mattress Company is an independent luxury mattress company created in 1893 by two brothers, Abraham and Samuel Shifman. It is one of the only mattress companies that still manufactures two-sided mattresses, and is now owned by Mike and Bill Hammer, who have dedicated themselves to continuing the hand-made-in-America tradition.
