American beds/mattresses in CH

Hello

Do you know any place that sells American mattresses or beds?
So far, we only found Aireloom in Milan, but itís like double the price from US and also involves importing taxes in CH.

Or do you know any company that would transport a mattress from US to CH?

Thanks!

You've probably got your reasons, and all, but why not buy a bed locally and save yourself a heap of stress and expense?

Iíve got my reasons, right, my back refuses to get Swiss-ed. And a matter of preferences, if one can enjoy a Lagunitas from pretty much any store, why not an American bed too?

1) You can get a mattress made to your specification from Elite in Aubonne/VD


2) A mattress is a very big thing, it will be .....equally, very expensive to transport

Sure, that’s fair. You can go American on everything and import everything - but it will simply come at a price

If by American bed you mean a boxspring, you can find these in most stores across Switzerland these days.

I actually mean an American brand and specs, i.e. the same product sold in US stores. Serta for instance...

I guess that is not necessarily a matter of nationality... Just considering IKEA Switzerland they have many types of mattresses: think or thick, with springs or foam, syntethic or organic, soft or hard... you can just go to one of their stores and try a few of them, they are on display. There's a good chance your back will like at least one of them, and if so you'll save a lot of money.
Same applies to other stores, of course, I just know IKEA by first hand. And with free IKEA Family membership you can return them within 3 months (sometimes even 6).
