Amerisleep’s bundle package pairs their premium mattress with their adjustable bed, which aims to provide solid comfort and support. The bed allows you to raise your head, legs, and neck depending on how you like to sleep. Raising your legs takes the pressure off your lower back while you sleep and increases blood flow, which helps you fall asleep faster. Raising your head is a great way to stop snoring, breathe more easily, read a book, or watch a movie.

How To Find Beds Made in the USA
Your bed is your sanctuary. You’ll sleep in it, rest in it, and lay in it watching Netflix all day. Although the mattress is a huge factor in getting a good night’s sleep, having the right frame can make a huge difference too. A good quality bed can also transform the look of your bedroom. Whether looking for a high-quality, luxury bed or something more affordable, many American consumers are turning to beds made in the USA.
But with most production taking place abroad, how does one begin to find US-made products? If you’re not sure where to start, this guide is for you.
What Does “Made in the USA” Mean?
First, let’s define what it means for something to be made in the USA. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) states that for a product to be “made in the USA,” “all or virtually all” of the manufacturing and assembly of the product must take place domestically. However, the “all or virtually all” can be vague. Couple that with the fact that there is no pre-approval process for companies to label their products as “made in the USA.” Further digging is required to determine whether or not a product is made in the USA.
Check out our “made in the USA” labeling guide to learn more about this.
The material used to make the framework is the first step to finding a US-made bed. For a product to be genuinely “made in the USA,” even the materials should be sourced domestically. So, researching the raw material and knowing whether or not these materials can be sourced in the USA is a huge step to finding beds made in the USA.
The two most common materials used for beds are wood and metal.
Most bed frames are made from wood, which can be broken down into two types: hardwood and softwood.
Hardwood has denser wood fibers of higher quality and is more attractive than softwood. Oak, maple, and mahogany are examples of hardwood. These types of wood tend to be more expensive than softwoods.
On the other hand, softwoods are usually seed-bearing evergreen trees, which include pine, ash, and cedar. Almost all softwoods are ideal for making furniture, including beds. In addition, softwood is generally cheaper than hardwood, with 80% of timber coming from softwood.
The United States is one of the leading countries in the world’s wood production. Although China leads in wood panel production, the USA doesn’t fall too far behind on both hardwood and softwood production. So if you’re going for quality, look specifically for hardwood made in the USA.
Most metal bed frames are constructed from steel, but some beds are also made from brass.
Steel is durable, strong, and lightweight compared to wood, making it a good choice for bed frames. China is the leading steel producer, producing around half of the world’s steel. However, the USA holds its own in terms of steel production, coming in fourth. Although imported steel tends to be cheaper, you should really keep a look out for American-made steel because American steel tends to be three times stronger than Chinese steel.
Brass is a popular bed frame material as it is highly resistant to corrosion. A big portion of brass in the world comes from Chile and China. However, the USA doesn’t do too badly in terms of brass production, coming in fifth. Although finding a brass bed made in the USA won’t be impossible, it’d be worth double-checking the country of origin.
Regulations set forth by the FTC and other authorities state that products must be properly labeled. Under Title 19, Chapter 4, Section 1304 of the US Code, any imported products must be labeled as such with the country of origin. The label can be on the product itself or on the packaging.
When looking for US-made products, you should specifically look for the “made in the USA” label. Thankfully, the legislation mentioned above helps us to find products made in the USA more easily, but there are a few things to watch out for.
Companies may use phrases like “made in America,” but this could refer to the product being made in Canada or Mexico instead of the USA. Similarly, phrases like “assembled in the USA” or “designed in the USA” only state that a part of the product’s manufacturing occurred in the United States. Another popular phrase is “made in the USA with imported materials.” This label states that the raw materials were sourced elsewhere, so the product cannot truly be labeled as “made in the USA.”
A final thing to watch out for is the usage of the American flag on labels. Unlike the “made in the USA” label, the American flag is not protected. So just because you see an American flag on the label does not mean that the product is made in the United States.
Here are extra tips to help you find beds made in the USA.
Check the Company’s Website
Specifically, check out the company’s “About Us” or the product page. If the product is made in the USA, it should be loudly advertised on their website. “Made in the USA” is a huge selling point! Remember that while companies are required to label their products with the country of origin on the physical product, there is no regulation that states they have to do this on their online or promotional materials. So, if you don’t find any information on the company’s website regarding the country of origin of their products, it’s probably safer to assume that it’s made abroad.
Online Shopping Sites
Online shopping sites like Amazon may state the country of origin in the “Product Information” section. Another good place to check is the FAQ section of the product page. Someone may have already asked where the product is made.
If you’re still unsure where a particular bed frame is made, simply call the company. A representative should be able to answer your questions regarding the country of origin and manufacturing sites.
