When you’re a kid, falling to sleep was never the problem. Waking up, especially on school days, was. And getting out of bed on weekends just seemed pointless, at least, until about noon or so.

And then we got old. Or rather older. When the day is over, all you can think about is hitting that mattress, fluffing that pillow and wrap yourself in precious sleep, putting all the day’s worries behind you. And for about 10 minutes, you lie there, a smile on your face, knowing that soon you’ll drift off. And about 10 minutes after that, the smile fades and you adjust your position, hoping to find a spot in the bed where your hip won’t hurt. Your significant-other opens one eye and silently warns you that you are destroying their chance of slumber. So you lie there, frozen in one position, hoping they will drift off soon, since one of your legs wants to jump and there is some muscle cramping in your neck.

It’s time. Time that we all get out of bed and cry out, “I’m mad as hell and I won’t take it anymore.” And at Delta Bedding, mattress and furniture, you will be greeted with a knowing smile and be introduced to an ocean of comfort, each bed, more inviting than the other. Instantly you will realize that you are glad you brought the family truck, since that bed, that mattress, the dream come true can go home with you today and tonight, that smile you have as you jump into bed, will linger long into the night. Naturally, delivery is not a problem in case all you have is a hybrid commuter.

“Oh, I didn’t hear you come in,” said Jack Everett, manager at Delta Bedding. He has his sleeves rolled up and explained that some new pieces had just arrived and they were unloading in the back. Right away, you recognize that this is a man who knows how to put you to sleep. With 25 years of working with mattresses and furniture, when you talk, he listens and can help you find a sleep system that will work for you.

Maybe it’s not a mattress you’re looking for — maybe it’s a new living room set, or perhaps, just a recliner that you can claim as “your chair.” Denise DaVigo shares her sense of design and listens while you explain your lifestyle, your wants and your list of needs regarding furnishings.

Finishing off the family at Delta Bedding is Ben Field, who makes it his mission to stay current with latest furnishing trends and sleeping solutions. In one end of the showroom sits a queen-sized mattress sitting on something called a Bedder Bed. The guys explain that this lightweight frame made from steel eliminates the need for a box spring. Once upon a time, our mattresses were not much more than a collection of coils covered in a thin layer of padding and materials. Thus, the box spring would give the bed just a little more cush. Today’s mattresses are a combination of memory foams, pillow tops, mechanical inner workings and more. So with this Bedder Bed frame, the mattress sits high off the ground without a box spring and allows room for significant storage underneath. And who doesn’t need more storage?

So figure to stop by and say hi to Jack, Denise and Ben at this year’s EDC Home and Garden Show. You can visit their warehouse located just off Highway 50 in Shingle Springs, 4241 Sunset Lane. A good sleep system might give you back the uninterrupted sleep you used to have. New furniture will certainly bring life back into your tired home. You can reach them at 530-677-2247.
