Tips on Choosing the Best Bed

There's much more to choosing a good bed than how you think it will look in your bedroom. There's plenty to think about, from innerspring options to memory foam and even hybrid mattresses. At Sleep King, our priority is our customers. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service. We want to do right by you, which why we want to be sure you find the perfect bed when you visit our mattress store in Little Rock, AR. To help you get started, here are a few tips on choosing the best bed for your sleep needs.

Visit a Showroom

Visit a Showroom

This tip might seem like a no-brainer to some, but it's important that you visit a showroom so that you can lay on different beds to get a feel for what you like. At Mattress King, you will have the chance to explore different styles, designs, and shapes, and mattress materials. Finding a bed online at a price you can afford is great, but you should lie on the bed first, not just look at it on a screen.

Determine Budget

Determine Budget

Here's a surprising fact: just because a mattress costs more money, it doesn't mean it's going to be a better bed. Sure, more expensive beds might have newer technologies and materials, but not everyone has the budget to walk into a mattress store in Little Rock and spend $3,000. Figure out what price range you're comfortable paying and look at the best options for your bottom line.

Consider Bedroom Size

Consider Bedroom Size

Before you swing by our showroom and start trying out beds, it might be a good idea to measure the space where your new mattress will go. If your bedroom is on the small side, a king-sized bed might be too big. Similarly, a small bed in a huge room might make for strange aesthetics. Aim for a reasonable amount of room around your bed - enough where you can walk around comfortably. As mentioned above, get specific measurements of the area you plan to use. That way, you have peace of mind knowing your new mattress will fit in your bedroom.

Consider Bedroom Size

Choose a Mattress Material

This tip often comes down to personal preference. It will take a little bit of trial and error to figure out which material works best for your back - innerspring, memory foam, or latex. While your friend's and family's opinions matter, keep in mind that their mattress choice was subjective. What works for them won't necessarily work for you.

Need a quick refresher on different mattress materials? Here's a quick overview
 King Bedroom Sets  Little Rock, AR


Also called coil mattresses, innerspring beds are probably the most well-known on this short list. Innerspring mattresses are often more affordable than their latex and memory foam counterparts. These beds are ideal for people who want a lot of support and a cooler night's sleep.


This material is known for its great cooling properties and overall comfort. With latex, there are no strange off-gassing odors like you sometimes get with memory foam. Latex mattresses are ideal for people who want a responsive, bouncy feel and may have problems sleeping hot.

Memory Foam

First developed by NASA in the 70s, memory foam is probably the most popular material in the modern mattress market. Memory foam conforms to every inch of your body, giving you maximum comfort and support. Memory foam is also know for its anti-motion properties. Memory foam can be a great choice if you tend to toss and turn at night and sleep with a partner who wakes up when you do. Memory foam mattresses are ideal for people who need pressure relief, good support, and refreshing comfort.

Think About Your Back

Think About Your Back

If you have a bad back, it's crucial that you find a mattress with proper support. Slat and spring beds often offer plenty of support, but latex and memory foam options have come a long way. If you want memory foam or latex but find the support to be subpar, consider an adjustable base instead of a normal platform. That way, you can always sleep in a comfortable position that benefits your back.

Dassault Falcon Jet’s Little Rock facility to add 800 jobs, extend lease to 2064

Dassault Falcon Jet will spend $100 million to expand its production facilities at Little Rock's Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport/Adams Field, allowing for more work on its Falcon 6X business jets while planning for future models, the company said Tuesday.The expansion, taking several years, will mean 800 new jobs.

Dassault Falcon Jet will spend $100 million to expand its production facilities at Little Rock's Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport/Adams Field, allowing for more work on its Falcon 6X business jets while planning for future models, the company said Tuesday.

The expansion, taking several years, will mean 800 new jobs. Dassault plans to spend a minimum of $100 million on capital investments at the airport by the end of 2034, according to Airport Commission documents.

Clinton National Executive Director Bryan Malinowski said a new lease requires the multimillion dollar investment. Additional land under lease at the airport will also bring Dassault's total close to 159 acres, Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission documents said.

Dassault Falcon Jet currently employs about 1,400 workers across two facilities at the airport totaling 1.2 million square feet. Malinowski said the expansion will not affect air passengers' experience at the airport nor airline operations.

The new facility will have 14 to 16 bays to handle a forthcoming jet, Malinowski said. After immediate construction of a new paint hanger and other projects in the company's current facilities, Malinowski said construction on the new plant will probably begin in the next two to four years, with filling the 800 positions taking place over several years.

Airport commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday morning to authorize airport staff to amend the current ground lease agreement with Dassault Falcon Jet for a new effective date of Jan. 1, 2024.

Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce President and Chief Executive Officer Jay Chesshir said the lease agreement contains a potential 10-year extension. The $100 million capital expansion is equally divided, he said, into industrial revenue development bond authorizations with a payment-in-lieu-of-tax agreement, which lowers the site's property taxes for the period of the bond issue.

The Little Rock Board of Directors approved that bond-authorization agreement at its Tuesday meeting. The bond issuance won't all happen at once. The city will hold title to the capital investment until Dassault Falcon Jet finishes repaying its bonded debt.

State and local officials gathered Tuesday with Dassault executives in one of the company's production facilities at the airport to announce the project.

"I'm here to talk to you about the future and our projects here in Little Rock," said CEO Thierry Betbeze. "We know that we have the Falcon 6X, and this is our future today. There are other programs under development; this is the future tomorrow."

"That future means that we will invest several tens of millions of dollars in two fascinating buildings to build the new planes," he said. "The future means that we will hire hundreds of new employees in Dassault Falcon Jet Corporation. These are challenges indeed, but this is the future."

The multi-decade deal covers a period of time with an all-but-certain likelihood of economic recessions that will affect the business jet industry. Malinowski said the lease has provisions requiring Dassault Falcon Jet to make its investment and, should the company fall short, tender some monies back to the airport.

Dassault has "separate incentives with the state that provide for workforce credits and government quick-action monies, and then they're also working with the city for the bonds to help finance the facilities," he said. "The existing deal preserves the existing 1,400 employees and then provides for the additional 800, and those are really good jobs here in Arkansas."

Asked at the event how the state worked to attract Dassault's expansion, Commerce Secretary Hugh McDonald noted the "Create Rebate" program, which provides annual payments based on a company's annual payroll for new full-time employees, with a minimum payroll set for employees hired as part of the project, and the "Tax Back" program, which provides 10 years of sales and use tax refunds on the purchase of building materials, taxable machinery and equipment.

Both programs are incentives offered by the Arkansas Economic Development Commission. McDonald said the Dassault expansion will still result in net tax revenue even with the incentives. A allocation of $12 million, through Arkansas' Quick Action Closing Fund, was also offered to Dassault as a performance incentive in return for the company agreeing to create a certain number of jobs. The incentive package also included $6 million for workforce development.

McDonald said there are no requirements that Dassault hire Arkansans or source materials from the state, given the company's competitive need to build the most cost-effective facilities possible. "We have the workforce locally," he said.

On the points of education and worker training, Betbeze said Dassault Falcon Jet will work with the state and city to train students to become technicians.

"In a world where everything is virtual, what we have to offer as a company are real and true jobs with good compensation and some interesting technology," he said. "I hope we'll be able to create, together with the governor and others here, a taste for aviation for these jobs."

In part through public grant funding, Chesshir said the chamber's workforce development team is working with the state and company to put together workforce development programs to train students for Dassault jobs and attract already skilled workers to the company.

Besides recruiting recent graduates with engineering and other degrees, Chesshir also noted a planned aerospace-focused trade school, community college and high school curriculum, notably at the chamber-associated college preparatory and career oriented Academies of Central Arkansas.

At the announcement, Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders associated her trip to this summer's Paris Air Show, the world's largest, with Dassault's plan to expand its Little Rock presence, already Dassault Falcon Jet's single largest site. She said she first met Betbeze at the air show and has previously linked the trip to RTX and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems' plans for a new $33 million missile manufacturing facility at Highland Industrial Park near Camden.

"Since aerospace happens to be Arkansas' largest export, totaling more than $1 billion, I knew it was important for Arkansas to have a strong presence there," Sanders said.

"Arkansas workers past, present and future have shown that they have the skills and the work ethic to get this job done. And frankly, the entire world is starting to notice, between private aviation here in Central Arkansas, defense in the 'Golden Triangle' [Camden, El Dorado and Magnolia], defense installations in Little Rock and Fort Smith, and a host of other investments across the state, Arkansas' role in aviation is literally taking off," she said.

The governor also thanked Dassault Falcon Jet's current 1,400 Arkansas employees, saying, "You have done a phenomenal job, and because of your hard work, because of the way you represent our state, this company is growing and reinvesting even more here in Arkansas."

The company has operated in Little Rock since 1975. Unfinished aircraft are flown to the completion center for the installation of aircraft electronics systems, interior design and exterior painting. The company also has a customer service center in Little Rock.

Memorial service for Moore set for 11:30 a.m. Saturday

Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott Jr. on Tuesday announced that Assistant City Manager Emily Cox will serve as acting city manager until further notice following the death of Bruce Moore, the longtime city manager, over the weekend.

Scott made the announcement following the conclusion of an executive session during a meeting of the Little Rock Board of Directors on Tuesday.

Moore, who was named city manager in December 2002, "passed away peacefully overnight in his Little Rock home," the city announced in a statement issued Saturday. He was the longest-serving city manager in Little Rock's history.

On Tuesday, a memorial display occupied the area where Moore typically would sit during city board meetings at the Centre at University Park. A 10 a.m. reception and 11:30 a.m. memorial service have been scheduled for Saturday at the Robinson Center.

Also on Tuesday, a circuit court judge issued a preliminary injunction barring the city of Little Rock from replacing H. Lee Lindsey and Leta Anthony, the ousted chair and vice chair of the Little Rock housing authority's board.

City board members had been scheduled to consider approving four new appointments to the five-seat board of the housing authority, among other appointments to various boards and commissions.

After the executive session, they ultimately voted to confirm just two housing authority appointees: Karen Buchanan and Bruce James.

City Attorney Tom Carpenter has filed a motion to stay the injunction issued by Pulaski County Circuit Judge Cara Connors until an Oct. 31 hearing.

On Friday, Lindsey and Anthony, represented by attorney Sylvester Smith, filed a lawsuit against the city and Scott that contested their expulsions and sought their reinstatement.

City board members on Sept. 26 voted 6-2 to remove Lindsey and Anthony in separate votes, with two members absent. In a voice vote, city directors opted not to remove a third commissioner, Kerry Wright.

The city board confirmed Wright last March to the seat on the housing authority's board held at the time by then-Chairman Kenyon Lowe Sr.

Two other commissioners, Branndii Peterson and Louis Jackson, did not go before the city board for removal proceedings last month.

Peterson's term expired Sept. 30. She told Scott she would not seek to be reappointed, mayoral spokesman Aaron Sadler said in September. (State law allows housing commissioners to continue to serve after their term has expired and until a successor has been appointed.)

Jackson's status on the housing authority's board was unclear; he announced his resignation on Aug. 23 but continued to participate in subsequent meetings.

At the time of Jackson's announcement in August, Anthony described it as necessary because Jackson was no longer relying on subsidized housing and therefore could not serve in the designated resident position on the housing authority's board.

Commissioners serve five-year terms. The housing authority's board normally makes appointments when vacancies or reappointments arise, subject to the approval of the city board.

Lindsey was a first-term commissioner whose term had been set to expire Sept. 30. Anthony initially was confirmed to the housing authority's board in late 2014. Her latest term was due to expire in September 2024.

The removal of the commissioners was preceded by a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development report that found major financial and administrative deficiencies at the housing authority.

The Sept. 1 report from HUD's Quality Assurance Division described "reasonable concerns" that "there is/has been a complete breakdown of internal control(s) and internal quality control procedures are either non-existent or not followed."

Nearly $30 million in spending was flagged as questioned or potentially disallowed.

Additionally, in August, the housing authority was labeled "troubled" because it scored 40 out of 100 on a HUD assessment system.

The housing authority is led by Executive Director Ericka Benedicto, a former city of Little Rock employee. She is the fifth executive director to serve in a permanent or temporary capacity following the resignation of Rodney Forte in late 2018.

11 Best Restaurants In Little Rock, Arkansas

Little Rock may be best known for its cheese dip and ...

Little Rock may be best known for its cheese dip and barbecue, but the city’s restaurant scene extends far beyond these iconic foods. Venture outside the box and sample the delectable Indian, Latin American, and creative New American cuisine that can be found here. Global flavors, an emphasis on farm-fresh ingredients, better-than-average steakhouses, and Southern-style home cooking—these encapsulate Little Rock’s culinary heartbeat every bit as much as a spicy, cheesy dip and succulent smoked meats (both of which, it must be said, you still have to try). Here are some of the best restaurants in Little Rock to try on your next visit, ranked in no particular order.


For the past three decades, Trio’s has served New American fare with locally sourced ingredients in cheery Andover Square. The lunch menu includes sandwiches, salads, burgers, and enchiladas, while hearty dinner entrees like Butternut Squash Cannelloni, Thai Style Shrimp Curry, and the Kobe Burger will satisfy you for hours. If it’s your first time here, get the Peck’s Special Salad—named for the historic Hotel Sam Peck downtown—and follow it up with a seasonal dessert., 8201 Cantrell Rd, Ste 100 Little Rock, AR 72227

Brave New Restaurant

Brave New Restaurant has been a local staple since its inception in 1991. With beautiful views of the Arkansas River and the downtown skyline, dining here is as much about the ambiance as it is about the food. The menu is excellent—savory, meat-centric entrees include Duck with Duck, a plate of seared, spice-rubbed duck breast and smoked duck sausage, and Mixed Grill, a mix of grilled pork tenderloin, beef medallion, stuffed quail, and wild game sausage., 2300 Cottondale Ln, Little Rock, AR 72202

El Sur Street Food Co.

A popular food truck turned brick-and-mortar, El Sur serves Honduran cuisine, including the famed baleadas, which are similar to a burrito. The best way to try this signature dish is to get the Con Todo, a folded flour tortilla with fried beans, Honduran cheese, fried plantains, avocado, cream, pickled onions, and your choice of filling (al pastor, birria, cauliflower chorizo, and others). Go ahead and get food for the table, too—the Pupusas and Fried Plantains are a must., 1214 Main St, Little Rock, AR 72202

Taqueria El Palenque

Look no further for great Mexican food in Little Rock than El Palenque. This tiny taqueria is tucked away at the strip center on Rodney Parham Road, but don’t be fooled by its unassuming exterior. You truly can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but the Burrito de Camaron—a flour tortilla stuffed with shrimp, beans, pico de gallo, cheese, lettuce, and sour cream—is a standout.

9501 N Rodney Parham Rd, Little Rock, AR 72227


Cache is a tried-and-true pick for fine dining in Little Rock. This River Market establishment boasts chic, modern decor and delicious seafood, pasta, and meat entrees. Save room for dessert, like warm chocolate cake, bread pudding, or key lime pie. After dinner, retreat to the upstairs outdoor patio for live music and a nightcap with a view., 425 President Clinton Ave, Little Rock, AR 72201

The Root Cafe

As much of a Little Rock institution as the Clinton Presidential Center or the Big Dam Bridge, the Root Cafe is a bustling farm-to-table spot located on Main Street downtown. All the meat, eggs, and bread they serve come directly from local farmers, and the majority of their veggies, cheeses, nuts, and fruits come from small producers in Arkansas. The breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus are wide-ranging, with several vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options., 1500 S. Main St, Little Rock, AR 72202

Star of India

Star of India has the distinction of being the state’s first Indian restaurant when it opened in 1993. Owner Sami Lal offers a warm welcome to all, and the food is undeniably good. Come for the lunch buffet, which features tasty traditional dishes such as tandoori chicken, vegetable biryani, chicken tikka masala, and more. With candlelit booths and highly attentive staff, you can always count on a meal at Star of India to be a memorable one., 301 N Shackleford Rd, Little Rock, AR 72211


Barbecue aficionados should make it a point to eat lunch at Lindsey’s in North Little Rock. Owners Donnie and Eleanor Lindsey often man the counter at this hometown haunt, which serves a range of aromatic smoked meats alongside classic sides like pinto beans, onion rings, slaw, and potato salad. Weekly lunchtime specials run the gamut from meatloaf to fried catfish., 207 Curtis Sykes Dr, North Little Rock, AR 72114

Dizzy’s Gypsy Bistro

It’s not a visit to Little Rock without sampling some cheese dip. Stop by Dizzy’s for their La Petit Roche Cheese Dip, which comes garnished with salsa, pico de gallo, sour cream, and tortilla chips. Dizzy’s has won several awards for its dip. Their entrees—White Truffle Mac & Cheese, Electra’s Baked Chicken Casserole, and Mama Elana’s Chicken Spaghetti are favorites—are made fresh, from scratch., 200 River Market Ave, Ste 150, Little Rock, AR 72201

Sterling Market

Dine in Sterling Market, a former paint factory turned upscale food hall. Here, sandwiches and salads feature ingredients from local vendors like Rabbit Ridge Farms, War Eagle Mill, and Barnhill Orchards. Accessible in rain or shine, the outdoor alley space offers comfy seating and occasional special events, like brunch bingo and live music., 515 Shall Ave, Little Rock, AR 72202

Arthur’s Prime Steakhouse

A favorite for special occasions, Arthur’s is the city’s premier steakhouse. Rich wood features, oil paintings, and crisp white tablecloths set the stage for an elegant meal. The team dry ages their beef on the premises before it's cut in-house. Pair your filet or ribeye with a glass of red wine from the award-winning wine list to complete your meal., 16100 Chenal Pkwy, Little Rock, AR 72223
