Our story

Tony Brown is the founder and creator of The Bed Consultant. His career in the bed industry began in 2002. After graduating from university with a degree in Business Administration, Tony joined one of the largest independent furniture retailers in the UK as a bed consultant.

Tony spent the next 12 years working in a busy bed department, helping thousands of customers find the perfect mattress. He has seen a lot of change during that time, from housing booms to recessions and advances in new mattress technologies.

Over the years, Tony has been lucky enough to visit the factories and showrooms of many leading bed brands. These include Tempur, Silentnight, Vi Spring, Pocket Spring Bed Company, Harrison Beds, and Sealy. There’s no substitute when it comes to talking to the experts, learning about the products and seeing first-hand the standards of workmanship that go into making every bed and mattress.

Tony has also participated in bed exhibition events and has used his extensive knowledge and experience to advise on suitable bed ranges for shop displays.
