In honor of Sleep Awareness Week, Mattress Firm partnered with three talented artists to debut the Art of Sleep. Each artist created a sleep-inspired design on a standard white pillowcase, and each shared a behind-the-scenes look at the process on Mattress Firm’s Instagram.

The Art of Sleep pillowcase design by David Milan
By David Milan for Mattress Firm

David Milan, a lettering artist, created a pillowcase that was inspired by paint textures to create a vivid rainbow of abstract shapes with bubbly letters reading SLEEP ON IT. In describing the feeling he wanted to convey, Milan said it’s when you “finally see your pillow and you’re ready to sleep on it.”

Raúl Soria, an illustrator based in Berlin, Germany, was inspired by his own personal struggles with insomnia. “I took it personally and chose to draw the one thing that I’ve been longing for for so long,” he shares, “a good night’s sleep.” Soria drew a grid of a character enjoying a perfect night’s sleep. And the inspiration has translated into success for Soria, who shares, “By the way, I’ve been sleeping really well for a couple of weeks now.”

You’re given a trash bag and told to pack as many of your belongings as you can. For whatever reason, and through no fault of your own, you are now being taken to a completely new place, without many of the comforts you are used to. And now more than ever, you're uncertain of what your future holds.

It's More than a MattressAt Mattress Firm, we understand the impact that the right mattress can have on a good night's sleep. And, while many people think of their bed as just a place to catch some Zzz's, a bed can mean so much more to a child. A mattress can be a place to jump like a monkey, practice reading, build a fort, listen to bedtime stories or to simply unwind from the stress of being a kid.
