Zip and Link Mattresses From John Ryan by Design

When it comes to choosing a mattress, you don’t want to make a rushed decision. There are a lot of different products on the market, and you want to make sure you’ve picked the right one. At John Ryan by Design we specialise in selling high-quality luxury mattresses. For over a decade we’ve worked within the mattress industry, perfecting our knowledge in order to provide a personal service and become the most trusted bed retailer.

We want our customers to make an informed decision about the mattress they plan on purchasing. That’s why we’ll take you through every step of the buying process, including material, size and dimensions. Every detail matters.

We believe in being up front about every product, including our range of luxury zip and link mattresses. A zip and link mattress uses zippers and bars that can be combined and separated to create one big bed or two smaller beds. Zip and link products are highly versatile, making them some of the best value mattresses on the market.

Knowing the size and weight of a mattress is key to understanding whether or not it’s suitable for you.
