In 1980, the category of adjustable air-supported sleep systems was invented by a private company, Comfortaire Corporation of South Carolina. Bob Walker left Comfortaire and formed a new company in 1987 called Select Comfort. Select Comfort acquired the Comfortaire Corporation, a major competitor, in January 2013. In March 2017, Select Comfort announced that they would no longer offer the Comfortaire lineup of Air Beds to their third party retailers/dealers. In November 2017, Select Comfort Corporation changed their corporate name to Sleep Number Corporation.

The company's TV commercials used to feature actress Lindsay Wagner. Other endorsers include conservative radio talk show hosts Glenn Beck, Paul Harvey and Laura Ingraham; Rush Limbaugh also previously advertised the product, but the company pulled its advertising in the wake of the Rush Limbaugh–Sandra Fluke controversy.

Sleep Number was founded in 1987 as Select Comfort by Robert "Bob" Walker and his wife JoAnn Walker. In 2014, Bob Walker was convicted by a jury of fraud, tax evasion, witness tampering and conspiracy for repeatedly misleading investors about the prospects for success of an alternative energy company he founded, Bixby Energy. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
