Beginning with making your own bed with whatever was at hand, then local and national manufacturers of increasingly sophisticated mattresses, we have moved to national and global bedding markets. Now we can stay at home, select our new mattress from any of several types and brands, and have them delivered right to our door in a box we can carry or drag to the bedroom to open and expand. Wherever we go from here, it will not be the same as our ancestors – or even our parents – put a bed in the house.

By the end of the decade, sales of waterbeds had declined significantly.
