Where Do I Find Oversized Alaskan King, Wyoming King or Family Beds?

You’ve heard about them, but have you ever seen an oversized mattress? They do exist – and in fact we make them here at Von Viva, where there is one on display right in our showroom.

For the past decade, we’ve seen a growing trend of customers wanting even larger oversize mattresses. Why is the traditional King-sized not large enough?

  • Restless sleepers. Some people like and want more space while sleeping with their significant other — the sound and motion from one partner may be too jarring to the other.
  • The Family Bed. Many families, especially those with young children, want the whole family to sleep together.
  • Dog lovers. If you have no space in your bed because of a larger-than-life canine friend, it could be time to upsize your bed.
  • Extra tall sleepers. Some folks are blessed by being head and shoulders above the rest, and for this they will often require a larger bed.
  • Luxury. If you live in a large home with lots of space, sometimes a King doesn’t feel the space. Having an oversized mattress gives you more room to get the sleep you deserve. Also, how cool is it to have the biggest mattress of anyone you know.


Here’s a look at a mattress size comparison chart for you:

How big is big?

An Alaskan King Bed, like its namesake, is enormous at 9 feet x 9 feet (108 x 108 inches). Alternately, a Family size is even wider although not as long, at 12 feet by 80 inches. We also make an Alberta King Bed which measures 8 feet x 8 feet. Then there are the more traditionally sized California King and Eastern King beds, which, while smaller in comparison, will still consume the greater portion of most master bedrooms.

How can you fit it in my house?

Many homes can accommodate an Alaskan. Obviously, you need a large enough bedroom, but you may be more concerned about the logistics of getting a mattress of this size into your house. At Von Viva, our modular mattresses easily dis-assemble into sections, so you can easily carry them into any home. Reassembly is easy, can be done in about 15 minutes, and takes no tools or special skills.

Where can I find oversized bed linens?

The other considerations are sheets and duvets, which you won’t be able to find at big box stores. However, we are soon adding these to our regular accessories line at Von Viva. For now, ask us for a quotation; but we will soon be adding the standardized pricing to this website.

Where can I get an oversized mattress?

The answer is, here at Von Viva of course. Our customers often visit us because they cannot satisfy their needs from a traditional mattress retailer; they want to know from what materials their mattresses are constructed, or they require a non-standard size.
