The Bedstretch PillowShelf™: A Bed Extension For Tall People
As seen on Dragons’ Den: Martin + Kris Andrew (a husband/wife team) invented the Bedstretch PillowShelf™ so that taller people can enjoy a better nights’ sleep.
Martin and Kris appeared on Dragons’ Den on Thursday the 12th of January. Despite not securing any investment, the Bedstretch PillowShelf™ received some well-deserved praise from Peter Jones.
“Martin and I were incredibly nervous about heading into the Den. When we explained that we were presenting a bed extender, Peter Jones helped to demonstrate the product. He explained how it was something that he often looks for in hotels. We couldn’t believe our luck,” said Kris.
“Even though we didn’t secure an investment, going into the Den and meeting the Dragons was an incredible experience, and for the Dragons to be so enthusiastic was incredibly encouraging – especially about the PillowShelf’s potential to break into the hospitality industry. This has certainly put some fire in our bellies,” added Kris.
Bedstretch started out in 2013. Prior to launching their business, Martin and Kris Andrew enjoyed careers in administration, business management, and computer programming.
At 6’2”, Martin would often find himself waking up in the middle of the night with his feet hanging off the edge of the couple’s super king bed – causing him and Kris endless sleepless nights. In 2013, these sleepless nights led the couple to build a shelf that would support the top of the pillow – allowing them to sleep further up the bed, resulting in a seven-foot-long sleeping space, and most importantly, a restful night’s sleep.
“We made the PillowShelf portable with adjustable legs to suit every divan bed,” said the duo.
“It was important for us that the product could be installed and removed within minutes with absolutely zero changes to the bed or bedding, as it comes with its own sheet,” they concluded.
