Back to Our Roots: The Essentia Showroom

Essentia’s story started out when Founder and CEO, Jack Dell’Accio, became aware of the negative impact toxins we encounter daily can have on one’s health. When a family member was diagnosed with cancer Jack began his journey to make a difference and recognized a huge opportunity to do so with a staple household item: mattresses. From dust mites to harmful chemicals in things like flame-retardants, the need for an organic solution became clear. With a family history of working within the latex industry, he sought to create a sustainable and organic alternative that put health and wellness above everything while never sacrificing quality or comfort. The final product? The world’s only natural memory foam mattress.


Along this journey, it was important to Jack that this new innovative product was represented in the right light. This is why when the opportunity came up to sell the patented natural memory foam to some of the big box manufacturers out there Jack had to pass. He realized that these companies would only use small amounts of the natural memory foam in order to market those products as “natural” and “eco-friendly” even though 80% of the mattress would still be comprised of sub-par components such as springs, polyurethanes, and fiber batting.

This is why all Essentia mattresses are made from natural, protein-free latex, from rubber tree sap, in Montreal, Quebec. By producing in Essentia’s GOLS and GOTS certified organic factory, we are able to maintain complete control over all ingredients and components to ensure the highest quality, healthiest, and most environmentally friendly mattresses. In fact, the ingredients used are so safe, employees in the Essentia certified organic factory do not need to wear masks since the mattresses are free from dangerous toxins, allergens and off-gases found in synthetic mattresses.

Why Essentia Showrooms?

It also rang true when it came time to introduce Essentia mattresses to the masses that a traditional mattress store just wouldn’t do, and that is why you will find Essentia showrooms across the US and Canada. We understand there is a lot that sets us apart, which is why in each Essentia showroom you will meet our dedicated local team who is happy to help you every step of the way. Our local managers have been with us for years and bring valuable experience and knowledge to you. This also rings true as they pave the path for our Betterhood initiative in each local community, growing our bond to each neighborhood and highlighting great local artists, charities and entrepreneurs.

UnknownIn these showrooms, you will experience Essentia’s product line and mattresses that are the only to offer the 6 key elements of wholebody recovery. We understand that your mattress has the responsibility to create a stimulant free sleep environment so that your body can maintain the deepest, longest possible sleep cycles. All Essentia mattresses offer this and more, with each category of Essentia mattress offering a different level of unstimulated sleep.  The Lifestyle collection offers an Allergy Friendly, Clean Air Environment which is the basis of each Essentia collection.
