1907 was the year that Hollywood actress and star, Katharine Hepburn was born.

The year that Rudyard Kipling won the Nobel Prize in Literature.


The year that President Roosevelt shakes a record 8,513 hands in one day.


When you see the memorable people and events that make up this great year, it puts into perspective the long history of skills and craftsmanship that have been passed down to the 1907 bed makers. With 105 years’ worth of experience, you’re in good hands.
