Sleep Well. Live Well.
A good night’s sleep lasts much longer than just the time you’re in bed. The affects of it can be felt throughout the day. Getting regular, uninterrupted sleep has been proven to help relieve stress, improve cognitive skills, and contribute to a long, healthy life. So, when we say Sleep well. Live well. We mean it.
At Obasan, customization is at the centre of everything we do. We’re committed to creating organic mattresses that are customizable head-to-toe and side-to-side so you and your partner can have the perfect sleep solution for your different heights, weights, and predominant sleep positions. We craft pillows that vary in firmness and are covered in different materials on each side so you’re be comfortable whether it’s summer or winter. And we design comforters that can be attached together for the perfect amount of warmth no matter what temperature it is outside.
Our Customers Speak
- “I have had my Obasan bed for less than a week. After almost 20 years of suffering with sever insomnia every single night and incredible pain from fibromyalgia, I have felt better since my first night on my Obasan bed! I am sleeping better and longer and, when I wake up in the morning, I no longer have to rush to my heating pad, a morning ritual I have practiced for many years due to back and neck pain upon arising. Today I saw my massage therapist who couldn’t believe the difference in my muscles particularly in my back, neck and shoulders. Thank you, Bob and Obasan, I feel that sleeping in this bed is going to make an incredible difference in my life! I have been told for years that better sleep was key to feeling better but I didn’t know how to get that elusive sleep. I think I have found it with my Obasan bed! “
- “I received my pillows last week and just wanted to thank you both for your impeccable and wonderful customer service. I have ordered many products over the Internet and the process has never been easier and more enjoyable than it has been with your company. Thank you so much for the immediate callback, the emails and your follow-up phone call, I will definitely be shopping on your website again!”
- “Never in my life have I experienced the superior level of customer service you have provided with our order of pillows. From taking the order, to confirmation of order, shipping, receipts and a follow up thank you – absolutely stupendous. For anyone looking for safe and healthy sleeping solutions, I would most definitely recommend Obasan.”
- “My son loves his new bed. For the first two days, all he wanted to do was to stay in bed! We had a hard time getting him out of bed. Thank you for the excellent experience.”
- “I have slept on my new Obasan bed for a couple of months now, and could not be happier. It is very different from a traditional spring mattress, so it took a little while to get accustomed to it, but I can’t imagine ever going back to a traditional mattress again. All of the stiffness and morning aches that I had with my old mattress are gone. Thank you for the guidance, advice and great service you gave me.”
- “Over two years ago our Specialized Kinesiologist determined that the foam mattress we were sleeping on was emitting toxic fumes as we slept. The warmth of our bodies activated the chemicals used to make the mattress. They were causing serious health issues for both of us. I asked Obasan to send me samples of the wool, cotton, and rubber used in their products. Our Specialized Kinesiologist found that we did not have any allergic reactions to them and also found that the rubber actually made our muscles strong. Now, as we sleep, we know that our bodies are benefitting, not only from sleep, but from the rubber mattress we are sleeping on.”
- “Back in January, my husband and I purchased a king-size mattress with your knowledgeable assistance. All the expectations we had when purchasing the bed have been exceeded. The kids wrestle on the bed, we read, and most importantly, the bed has become the “go-to” place when the children need comfort. It sounds a bit extreme, but it is true — the bed has improved our quality of living. Thank you for helping make this happen.“
- “What a wonderful surprise that arrived on my doorstep this afternoon! Thank you so very much for the lovely organic gray herringbone throw presented in an Obasan box with a navy ribbon, catalogue and card with a personalized note – all very .much appreciated.
I do love my Obasan bed and always enjoy lying down on it at the end of the day – it is sooo comfortable and I never have any creaking joints in the morning. As said in the notecard, I am having the best sleep of my life!
Thanks so much again.“
