Company Symbol is Serta sheep. The appearance of the sheep in advertising Serta mattresses refers to 2000. Once, one of the leaders of the advertising department, when unsuccessfully tried to sleep on his old mattress, regretting that he did not find the time to replace it with a new one, began to count sheep. Then the idea of the now easily recognizable characters with numbers on their side appeared. The manufacturers promise that you do not have to count sheep from insomnia anymore — with Serta mattresses, there is just no such a problem.

The seller promises energy boost in the daytime and a deep sleep at night. Serta mattresses have a number of innovative benefits.

The system does not just support some part of the body but adapted to the peculiarities of the whole structure. This allows you to immerse yourself in the restful sleep without tossing and turning or waking up from your partner’s movements.
- Serta Total Edge is a mattress strengthening system along the entire perimeter. Thanks to it, a person does not roll into the center of the bed while sleeping, and the mattress is not deformed after years of use.
