Casper Original Mattress
PROS: You can try out this mattress for 100 nights to really decide if you love it. It’s also super supportive and actually helps keep you cool thanks to a perforated foam top (a big bonus if you’re a hot sleeper).
CONS: Can feel a bit firm for those who prefer a softer feel, and some reviews note that the mattress can start to be less comfortable after a few years.
WHAT OUR TEAM SAYS: AWIT | Design Manager
“I’ve been sleeping better than I ever have since switching this mattress. It’s super supportive, but not too firm or soft.”
Purple NewDay Mattress
PROS: With its trademark 2″ GelFlex Grid, this mattress is great at keeping hips and shoulders perfectly aligned and adapting to your movements. Also offers a 10-year warranty.
CONS: A bit on the firmer side, and slightly heavier than other comparable mattresses.
WHAT OUR TEAM SAYS: AMOR | Design Assistant
” I really, really love the gel top. It’s a little different to get used to but I now love that my entire body is being supported no matter what position I’m sleeping in.”
Nectar Memory Foam Mattress
PROS: An ideal balance of softness and firmness, it also has a 365-day at-home trial and a forever warranty (yes, forever) that protects against defects in construction, materials, or quality.
CONS: Not as affective as keeping you cool as some other options.
WHAT OUR TEAM SAYS: JANET | Office Manager
“I like a soft mattress and my boyfriend prefers firm. After testing out a couple of options, we both agreed that this was the ideal balance for both of us.”
Allswell Luxe Hybrid Mattress
PROS: This hybrid option has memory foam and individually wrapped springs for increased support and less motion transfer (something your sleeping partner will appreciate if you move around a lot).
CONS: Does not ship in a smaller box, and at only 10″ deep, it’s one of the less thick options.
WHAT OUR TEAM SAYS: LOGAN | Creative Content Lead
“I’m a hot sleeper, and this mattress really has kept me cool. It’s also a pretty amazing deal at under $500 for a queen size!”
Saatva Classic Mattress
PROS: You can select both the height and comfort level (plush soft, luxury firm, firm) of this mattress. The 3″ euro pillow top is also treated with an antimicrobial to prevent any mold or bacteria.
CONS: The most expensive option, and does not ship in a box due to steel coil construction.
WHAT OUR TEAM SAYS: ADAM | Design Manager
“By far the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. I choose the luxury firm top and getting into bed every night is so nice now.”
Tuft & Needle Mint Hybrid Mattress
PROS: The mattress is composed of both springs and cooling memory foam so you get the best of both worlds, it also comes with a washable cover that is easy to remove (and it’s currently on sale).
CONS: It is a medium to firm mattress so for some side sleepers it might not be the right fit.
WHAT OUR TEAM SAYS: BRADY | Creative Director
“I tried out all of T&N mattresses in the store before deciding on this one and both my boyfriend and I agree that it’s the best mattress we’ve ever had.”
Couldn’t have written this at a better time. I am needing to replace a guest room mattress. BTW- I am at the Purple site right now and providing an email address for a first time buyer saves an additional $50, too. Thanks, Booby and team.
Thanks for reading and sharing the tip with us! Wishing you the best quality sleep with your new mattress. xx -B
Question ❓❓❓ My 23 yr old son is moving into his first studio apartment outside of Chicago, all 400sq ft. He has as queen bed. Can you recommend a small sofa or perhaps he’s better off with two swivel chairs & ottoman. All recommendations welcome! Please help – frantic Mom
I’m a big fan of this small sofa from West Elm . It’s stylish, sturdy, and just 72″ long. And check out this post for some more small space decorating tips! xx -B
