  1. Episode 95: Swan Bedding


    Buying a mattress used to be a simple decision or foam or spring. Now, however, mattress technology has come long way. You can choose to go for Coil Springs, Pocket coils, Air suspension pocket springs, Foam, Pillow, Latex or Gel topped; the list goes on. Some mattresses can also get very expensive as you go for newer technologies.

    Swan Bedding, a new Australian owned business, has taken on the challenge of manufacturing high quality mattresses at reasonable prices. ArchiTel takes a look at what makes these mattresses so special and talks to the store owners who sell them .
