R J Norris Bedding was established just after World War 2 by Reg Norris, shortly followed by his brother John, thus naming the company R J Norris at the premises in 86-88 Coldharbour Lane, South London in 1947. They started out as re-upholsters and then moved into making mattresses the year after.
Reg continued with the upholster trade and moved to a new workshop in Blackheath while John stayed with the bedding side of the firm based at Camberwell. Later John was joined by his son Anthony in 1982. In September 1995 John retired but is still fondly remembered by customers, while Anthony continues to head the family business.
In 2006 the manufacturing side was moved to Rotherhithe and then in 2007 moved to a brand new unit at Belvedere, Kent, where you can still call ahead and arrange a visit to see how these mattresses are made. The original showroom in Camberwell is still open for you to try out these beautifully made beds for yourself.
Norris Bedding goes from strength to strength supplying it’s beds to some of the very best hotels, top interior designers and private houses around the world, continuing the tradition of making luxury hand crafted mattresses and divans using only the finest, natural materials from horse hair and wool to mohair and cashmere.
