Our team, our family
We’ve always been a tight-knit family, so it stands to reason that working together would bring us great joy and satisfaction.
Each of us brings a different area of expertise to the running of our business, but together we share the same values, commitment, and passion for what we do.
George, Kelli and Niki make up the original Dream Beds team and earlier this year, we were delighted to have the lovely Summer come on board and join the family.

We know beds— and common myths
We know bed shopping can be a bit confusing. There’s a lot to choose from, and plenty of misconceptions. Let us dispel a few of them for you.
You need a firm mattress for your back
A mattress that is too firm can be uncomfortable and cause painful pressure points, especially around the hips and shoulders. Our bodies are curved, not straight, so some softness will allow the mattress to contour to your body shape as the hips and shoulders sink in, providing excellent support, optimum spinal alignment and eliminating pressure points.
A soft mattress is bad for your back
A soft mattress is often confused with a saggy mattress, but soft and saggy are very different. A mattress sags when it has lost its support or is too old - that is definitely bad for our backs! Before excluding a plush mattress from the list of candidates, give one a go – it might be exactly what you need. See the myth above for how a softer mattress could benefit you.
A mattress should last for 10 years or more
The life of a mattress is as unpredictable as our famous Kiwi weather! It depends on many things, such as body shape and size, how we sleep, and mattress care. Anything between 6 to 10 years is normal. However, our bodies are always changing, and our mattress needs to fit those changing needs. Think about how well you’re sleeping on your mattress – your body will tell you when it’s time for a new one.
The best bed in the shop is the most expensive bed
You might find that the most expensive bed in the shop doesn’t suit your needs at all.
The best bed is the one you are most comfortable on, where your body is aligned and there’s no pressure on your hips or shoulders. As for the budget, it’s up to you - what value do you place on a great night’s sleep?
