History

1870 : The American Zalmon G. Simmons assembled a metal carcass made up of springs and covered it with a cotton tablecloth: this was the birth of the spring mattress. Quickly, the springs were put inside bags and so the legendary Quiétude suspension was born.

1919 : Simmons finally abandoned the cheese box business and created his Company. The first pocket spring machine was developed. It was the end of the handicraft era. 

1929 : The Simmons mattress crossed the Atlantic aboard the famous steamers Le Normandy and Le France for which he had equipped the cabins. The brand then was set up in France. The French discovered this exceptional suspension and embraced the incomparable comfort it provided.
