After Casper first introduced the concept of direct-to-consumer mattresses, Nectar co-founder Eric Hutchinson noticed that there was room for other players in the industry. He then met with Craig Schmeizer and Ran Reske and prepared to launch Nectar in 2016. Nectar has since been named the fastest growing e-commerce retailer in North America and subsequently added three additional mattress brands to the Nectar line.
Their mattresses are also sold in physical stores and online, including the showrooms in Mattress Warehouse locations nationwide. The founders recently created an umbrella company named Resident to offer a full range of household furnishings. Resident was named #43 in the Best Places to Work in NYC list in Built in NYC.
Their site states, “At Nectar, we believe that better sleep makes all the difference. That’s why our driving mission is to give you the best rest, night after night.” It also says, their “team of experts is built on honesty, facts, friendliness and a willingness to help…With offices in San Francisco, New York, Tel Aviv and London, and a company motto to work hard, have fun, and sleep deep, it’s no surprise we were named one of the best places for employees in NYC.”
The two mattresses currently sold on Nectar’s website include the Nectar mattress and the Nectar Lush mattress.
