Think local. If you are in the Victoria, BC, area and in the market for a natural, healthy sleep experience, Fawcett Mfg. has a new showroom in Victoria’s Rock Bay Design District and their aim is to change the mattress industry in Victoria to an “open kitchen” concept mattress and sleep system shop. Stop by the Fawcett showroom/manufacturing facility (408 John Street at Turner St.) to see how they can manufacture a better and healthier mattress, customized for you. See how affordable it is to sleep on an amazing mattress that is made by the most passionate people in the industry using only the best and healthiest materials available.
Fawcett mattresses are locally made, natural, non-off gassing, and contain no nasty fire retardants. They are petroleum free, and Formaldehyde free. All of their mattresses are padded with Joma wool and organic cotton. This unique combination is breathable, temperature regulating, naturally fire retardant and dust mite resistant.
The Model Six is Fawcett's most affordable mattress. The high coil count inner spring unit offers tremendous support to a three inch, 100% Natural Talalay Latex upper core. Fawcett also offers Models One, Four and Nine, and each of those can be ordered side specific, allowing couples to choose the firmness they prefer for their side of the bed.
Using only fair trade, 100% natural Talalay latex foam, high thread count organic cotton fabrics, organic wool padding, SIMALFA Water/Shell based adhesives, Fawcett has even gone so far as to source organic cotton encased individual pocket coil springs for one of their models to insure that everything they use is of the highest standards.
All this and they are backed by a ten-year warranty. Read more about their warranty.
The newest addition to the Fawcett collection of customizable beds is the elegant Float Bed which features an Italian Stema frame, removable headboard wings, cantilevered walnut side tables and it's upholstered in the softest Tonica wool.
Offering a complete sleep system, Fawcett Mfg. also designs and makes custom bed frames and headboards, and they also stock all natural, organic, non-off gassing pillows, and mattress covers.
Fawcett also makes contemporary, custom made furniture that is designed for comfort and longevity.
When space is a concern, the Atom Sofa is a great choice. The Atom Seating Collection offers maximum seating in a compact design and tends to fit where others won't. All Fawcett sofa systems, including the Hartland, the Project, the Square One and the Tommy Sofa Bed are all customizable to fit your space and fabric choices.
All of Fawcett's custom made furniture is constructed of sustainably farmed solid beech and an environmentally harvested plywood that has no added urea formaldehyde. They pad their products with natural, fair trade latex and 100% organic and hypo-allergenic wool; the strong synergy between these components results in a product that wicks moisture and regulates temperature while offering maximum comfort.
Fawcett Mfg. also excels at custom upholstery and specializes in rejuvenating iconic furniture pieces from international designers such as Eero Saarinen and Arne Jacobsen.
