April Pafford

Sleep Director


A self-proclaimed sleep guru with experience to prove it, April Pafford is Cantoni’s full-time sleep director, specializing in custom fittings to help clients get the best night’s sleep possible. “I’m a fan of sleep and it’s recuperative magic on the body and mind, April says.

With over 13 years of experience in personalized mattresses and sleep solutions, April leads the Cantoni Sleep Studio with expert knowledge clients trust. She also has a history with bold style, “I’ve been decorating since I was 7 when I painted a family portrait in magic marker on the wall of my room. It just really went with the bunk bed!” she adds. It’s this rare combination of design know-how and sleep expertise that helps clients select the right mattress for their dream contemporary bed.

When she’s not at the Cantoni Sleep Studio you can find her practicing her skills as a dog whisperer. An artist at heart, April, enjoys working and learning alongside so many creative and talented people. Her fun-loving personality makes her easy to work with, but don’t be surprised by her analytical side. “My friends call me Spock when the 'facts and figures' side emerges,” April shares.
