Testimonials

 

Below are some of the great compliments we have received from both customers and partners during our many years.

Hello. I would like to thank you for a great product.

Last year my husband and I purchased a pillow top mattress from one of your competitors. An extreme disappointment. The mattress cost was over $2000 (this was a major purchase for our middle class family ). Within 4 months the mattress had a huge indentation that made sleeping with my husband unbearable.

I searched many stores for a new mattress and was told ” The mattress companies no longer make double sided mattresses “. I couldn’t believe this. I kept searching, my computer was the next area of research. Alas, I found your company and luckily you had a dealer on Long Island, NY. My husband and I went to the Bloomingdale’s in Garden City, NY to test the bed. We laid on it many times to make sure. We didn’t want to have another bad experience. It’s now 6 months later and I had to let you know how much I love the bed. A good nights sleep is so important for us as we are both up very early,4 am, and in bed by 8 pm.

My thanks and gratitude go out to your company for sticking with the traditional bed. We need to purchase other beds for my children when we can afford it and they will most certainly be Shifman.

I recently bought a full size Rembrandt from your Masters Collection. I have it three weeks. My only regret is that I did not buy it last year when my daughter bought her Van Gogh. I have slept soundly and feel so much better in the morning. My first night’s sleep was so deep and satisfying that I did not want to leave the bed in the morning. Back discomfort is going away, too!
Kudos to your production methods. The video says it all!

Dear Shifman:

After much research (and suffering thanks to those other “S” mattresses), we became true believers in investing in a quality mattress. Before, we both ached in the morning, and my husband was facing spinal surgery. So we bought a Shifman Van Gogh. This bed has literally saved his back. That was five years ago, and today, that same bed is STILL amazing. We’ve become your biggest fans and ‘grass roots PR team’ by convincing several of our neighbors to buy Shifmans!

Our sons, too, sleep on your ‘Jade’ twin sets and we expect their mattresses will likely last them into college. I can’t say enough good things about your products. Please know that you have some seriously satisfied customers!

Thank you so much!

I have back problems. We had a Sealy Extra Firm for many, many years and only replaced it because of age, not quality. We then purchased a premium BeautyRest pillowtop and, after under a year, gave it away. We looked at many brands and decided on a Shifman. We are glad we did. The price made us do much research on the product. My back is happy; and the mattress feels and looks like quality. I also like that it is flippable; all mattresses should be! I recommend Shifman highly. I thank you and my back thanks you.

I never heard of your product before. However, my wife and I were shopping for a couple of lamps today, and went to our favorite store… we also told the salesman (who we have known for years) that we were looking for a mattress. Well this guy gave us a real education on your product. I was very impressed and decided after looking at your website and video that I am getting a Shifman. I love products that are made by hand and made in the USA.

I just want to thank you guys for your wonderful mattress product.  My wife and I purchased a Shifman mattress over 35 years ago. We regularly rotated it (length-wise and width-wise) once or twice a year. It has no lumps of padding, no sagging and the mattress is as firm as when we first purchased it.

Congratulations on a first rate product.

I finally took the plunge and purchased a Shifman Queen Rembrandt Masters Set. I was quite nervous about whether I was justified in spending such a large amount of money on “just a bed”. Well, the mattress and boxspring arrived yesterday and I slept on it last night, and quite frankly, I am reluctant to leave the bedroom since I want to be close to my new bed.

IT IS INCREDIBLE… I feel like I have been transported into the past when quality was the first consideration, not the last.

Over the years, my last few mattresses have failed my rigorous test of comfort and I have invested lots of money in high quality latex toppers, fine wool and bamboo covers for my “mainstream” mattress sets. I found that I probably wasted a lot of money since I don’t feel the need to put a topper on my new Shifman mattress which isn’t even a pillow-top!

I am so very impressed with the boxspring as well… truly a work of art! An added bonus is that your product SMELLS GREAT.

I want to thank all of your workers for their fine craftsmanship in making my mattress and boxspring. I am truly impressed and glad that there are still quality made products here in America.

Instead of nervous, I now feel privileged to have purchased one of your mattress sets.

You have my highest recommendation.

Dear Customer Service Representative,

When my husband and I got married 34 years ago, we needed to buy a bed. Since I was only 20 years old, I had not a clue as to how to proceed. My mother insisted that I buy the BEST mattress available and she took us to purchase a Shifman.

Through the years, we always found the bed comfortable. Since it was a king size bed, our two children had spent many a Sunday jumping on the bed. We never felt that the mattress was sagging or getting mushy.

As the years passed, we saw that many of our friends were buying their third or fourth sets of mattresses. We thought that maybe there was something wrong with us. We could not understand why our bed still felt comfortable.

Finally a year or two ago, I visited a local merchant to discuss our dilemma. He explained that the Shifman mattress is so well made that our bed was probably still in good condition.

This past winter, we made a decision to buy a new bed. We knew that since we spent 34 comfortable years with our old mattress, there was no choice but to get another Shifman. We went directly to Bloomingdale’s and tested all the Shifman mattresses. We purchased a Shifman Lyons. We love our new bed. It is extremely comfortable and quite luxurious.

We thought you might be interested in hearing our story. It seems to be the perfect advertisement for a company that makes a wonderful product.

Dear Sirs,

We recently purchased a Shifman mattress and we were so impressed with its quality and comfort that I was compelled to let you know that you make a product unmatched by other makers. We were lucky enough to test one of your mattresses and the initial feeling of comfort was enough to take it home. We have already enjoyed sleeping on it and look forward to many years of restful sleep! PLEASE keep up the good work and pass along our heartfelt thanks to your craftsmen. Thanks again!
