Name: Brooke Alexander, Charlie EisenbarthRole / Title: National Sales Manager / Operations Manager Company Name: Nest Bedding Location: Santa Monica CAURL: https://www.nestbedding.com/ Why we love them: Nest sells high quality, environmentally responsible mattresses and bedding online and in their brick and mortar stores. As a companion to their quality mattresses, their in-person showrooms showcase Greenington beds as a featured product line. Describe your business in a nutshell: We are a family owned and operated company specializing in affordable luxury goods made in the USA, focused on non-toxic bedding and mattresses. We have 11 stores nationwide and are expanding, as well as an online store. How long have you been in business? Since 2011. What inspired you to start it? Our father, Joe Alexander, had worked in several capacities in sales in mattress and bedding companies. He saw how much they were getting it wrong in terms of quality of materials and, when the natural and non toxic movement began, he knew he could do it better. He opened up his first store in the Bay Area, and then another, and then it grew from there.  Non-toxic/natural has been a core component from the onset, and it’s refreshing to know we were at the forefront of that. We’re increasing the visibility of this issue internally by bringing a healthy product and material to the customer; by sourcing the cleanest, most natural component available; and also contributing to the cohesive life cycle (from the onset of pulling the material to manufacturing) by having the value chain be beneficial for all those involved. How are you different than your competitors/peers? Behind the...
