“I’m looking forward to working closely with Alex Milstein, editor-in-chief of Bedding News Now,” Perry says. “Together we offer the most experienced reporting team in the mattress industry, one that will continue to provide mattress leaders with the day-to-day news and insights they need to make profitable business decisions in a rapidly changing marketplace.”

“Dave was one of my mentors when I was first introduced to the mattress industry several years ago,” Milstein says. “I welcome him to his new home and am excited to work with him as he shares his critical business observations with our growing audience of mattress executives.”

Rick Harrison, founding publisher of Home News Now and Bedding News Now, says Perry’s addition to the team represents an expansion of the company’s commitment to the mattress category.

“Dave has significantly contributed to the growth and stature of the mattress industry over the years through his passionate devotion to the men and women in the United States and around the world who make, market and sell mattresses,” Harrison says. “I’ve worked with Dave for years and know that the respect he has earned from industry leaders will serve us well as we deepen our coverage of the mattress category.” 

Perry joined the home furnishings industry in 1983 at Furniture Today. He began covering the mattress industry in the mid-1980s before moving into management roles at the publication, eventually serving as executive editor. He returned full time to the mattress beat in 2001 and remained there until he left Furniture Today in 2020.
