La différence combines elegant design, state-of-the-art engineering, and exacting craftsmanship.

A great day begins with a great night’s sleep. In fact, numerous studies have shown that inadequate sleep over time can shorten your lifespan, and trading sleep to cram more into the day increases your risk of developing serious medical conditions.

If you’re not getting enough sleep, you have a greater chance of developing diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and even the common cold. Not to mention the more immediate problem of simply looking tired and being short-tempered. So, what better way to get your beauty rest than on the most beautiful mattress available? Sealy South Africa is proud to answer that question with one of their flagship mattress’s, la différence.



Crafted right here in South Africa, Sealy’s la différence blends spectacular design, state-of-the-art features, and uncompromising attention to detail. Its hybrid support system combines a carefully engineered coil-in-coil array of inner springs with a hybrid foam core that delivers the responsive comfort of memory foam with the resilience and durability of latex. And that, says Sealy South Africa brand executive, Riaan Strydom, is just the beginning.

“Every detail has been considered in la différence,” notes Strydom. “This is the most feature-rich mattress we’ve ever sold. Sealy prides itself on having a mattress for any need, on any budget, but la différence sets the bar for everyone else.”



Its inner workings are covered in a generous layer of latex mesh, which provides yet another level of support while relieving any pressure points.  Thick wool batting further distributes body weight and works with the latex mesh’s fibre channels to disperse body heat and regulate the mattress’s temperature. Both standard and pillow tops are available, each using Sealy’s exclusive Dermatex fabric, which provides a lush, breathable surface whose advanced formulation protects skin overnight.

If la différence’s engineering and construction make it the perfect way to get your beauty sleep, its elegant design makes it a beautiful centrepiece for any bedroom during the day. “We’ve seen a lot of different mattress designs,” says Strydom, “but with la différence, we regret the fact that one of our models will spend most of its time covered in bed sheets!”


Besides investing in a comfortable state-of-the-art mattress, Sealy suggests the following tips that will help you make the change to better health and longer life:

  • Set your internal body clock by creating a regular sleep schedule
  • Wind down before bedtime with a calming bedtime routine
  • Make your bedroom a relaxing environment
  • Keep a sleep diary so you can review your habits
