Tom and Joan Clarke formed the company under the name Clarke's Mattresses Limited 63 years ago in 1946 in the North Yorkshire town of Skipton. In 1951, they changed their name from Clarke's Mattresses to Silentnight Limited and were soon producing more than 4,000 divan beds a month.
In 1986 they launched the 'Ultimate Spring System' - the first new spring system in the UK for over three decades. The launch also saw the birth of our brand icons, hippo & duck, in a TV advertising campaign to demonstrate the ultimate spring system's no-roll together properties.
Silentnight Beds is now the UK's largest and best-loved bed manufacturer and firmly established at the cutting edge of bed technology, comfort and style. They make beds for sleeping, dreaming, napping, dozing, snoozing, and most importantly, for everyone. Recent new product developments include My First Bed, a unique creative bed for children and Mirapocket, the ultimate in lavish comfort and support.
