About Us

Sleepyhead™ is an online sleep startup. We sell a memory foam mattress and topper, in a box, that’s shipped straight to your door anywhere in the USA in 3-5 days.

Our Mission: One donated for every ten sold. We do this by donating a mattress/topper to established charities.


Our Story

Sleepyhead was founded

in 2016, by a college student named Steven Van Alen. In Steven's early days of college he loved to sleep. However, he realized the beds in student housing and furnished apartments were substandard and unhygienic.

After intense research

and the struggle with buying and setting up a mattress, Steven thought hmm... there has to be a better way. Later he learned memory foam mattresses can be compressed, vacuumed sealed and rolled up to fit inside a box! He fell asleep and awoke looking at his dog and said, "hello Sleepyhead." That's when the name stuck.

Designed & engineered with perfection & passion

After years of research and development we designed and engineered the perfect 100% memory foam mattress and topper. We realized the toppers are a great choice for college students, providing a fresh start on their hard and used mattress. The mattresses are perfect for those young adults ready for a goodnights sleep that will turn them into a Sleepyhead.


To make a difference

Later Steven gets a call to find out his sister is homeless. After falling on hard times and rising student expenses she was left without a place to call her own. At 9 months pregnant she slept on the cold concrete floor of a women's shelter. When Steven found this out he wanted to do something to help. Not just her, but the thousands of other students who fall on hard times and are in need of some support to help them sleep better at night. This was the day Sleepyhead was born. That's why for every ten mattresses/toppers sold, Sleepyhead will donate one to a student in need.

good Design and high Quality

We believe in quality craftsmanship without the gimmicks. We work with the best to get the best. And then we sell the best, for exactly the price it should cost. It's the very simple system at the heart of everything we make.


Comfortable sleep for all

Our mattress and topper are comfortable and safe for humans and animals alike. Any size or shape we give you the comfort and experience you deserve.

Considering you spend a third of your life sleeping why would you choose any other bed thats name doesn't allude to Sleep? We hope you will join us! Just try not to turn into a Sleepyhead.
