Ellison Furniture and Carpet Company constructed this mattress factory across Pecan Street from their three warehouses, built a few years earlier. For many years, in-house brand mattresses for the furniture company were made here. The building is constructed of reinforced concrete with brick infill and has a four story section to the south and what appears to be a later addition of two stories to the north. Although the architect is not known, the building is believed to have been designed by Sanguinet & Staats. Much of the brick and concrete on the exterior has been painted, but along with Tindall Square, the building forms a small historic warehouse district on the far east side of downtown.
