Hi there! My name is Alex Cubias and I run Affordable Home Furniture in Van Nuys, California. In the nine years that we have been open, I estimate I have sold over 7,000 mattresses. Opened in 2010, during the recession, the store is thriving today, mainly because of our mattress and bedroom furniture business. We sell mattresses by the truckload, so by necessity, I have become a mattress expert.

I know first-hand how intimidating buying a mattress can be, choosing between so many sizes, brands, firmness, price points, and degrees of comfort.

However, I have also found that buying a good mattress can be pretty satisfying. And so, I created this website to share some of my knowledge to make your mattress-buying experience easy, informed, and even fun.

Should you have any questions about anything you’ve read here, feel free to contact me here.
