Our Team

Ralph Bradley opened his first furniture store in downtown Salt Lake City in the 1950s.  (We have found newspaper clippings from Bradley-Badger Furniture sales as early as 1953). He quickly developed a reputation as having one of Salt Lake’s best little furniture stores. In the late 1970's Mr. Bradley decided to focus on sleep related products and built a 40,000 square foot Sleep Center in Murray Utah.  At the time Bradley’s Sleep Center was the largest Mattress shop west of the Mississippi.  Soon Bradley's became known as the premier destination for sleep related products in the Intermountain West.  

Mr. Bradley and his wife had 14 children, many of which learned lessons from working hard at the store.  Mr. Bradley later left the daily operations of the Sleep Center to his sons.  In the late 1990s after Mr. Bradley retired to spend more time with his family andserving religious missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, one of his sons along with a long time employee Chad Downs took over the business. They opened up a second location in 1991 in South Salt Lake City which is the current location of the business today. In 1997, the last Bradley Still involved left the business and Chad and his wife, Lesa became the sole owners. 

As the Water Bed era began to slow, Chad and Lesa focused intensively on updating to Innerspring Latex Foam Mattresses in the South Salt Lake store. Later, to compete with surrounding furniture shops, Bradley's immediately started to diversify from just selling sleep related products and became a full line furniture store- often featuring builders from the Salt Lake area. Today, Bradley's has focused on an excellent display of locally-built handmade Rustic and Log Furniture, yet still is proud to specialize in selling the best mattresses available on the market at affordable price points! Chad and Lesa's son Matt began working as a delivery man in High School and over the years has taken on more of an ownership role as he is purchasing the business from his parents. Even though the Downs’ are not directly related to the original Bradley’s, we like to think of our store as a third generation family-owned business and hope you will get that vibe when you shop with us!
