Factory Direct mattress manufacturers near New York City, NY 03 Nov 2011 20:22 #1

currently shopping for a mattress. I am in the nyc area, just north of it actually. I was about to buy a simmons beautyrest until I tried the enso dream, and serta icomfort foam beds. I liked the way they felt so I stumbled on this site trying to find some info on the enso mattress. After a bunch of reading I've found myself more confused then ever. I understand what pheonix is talking about in his threads but not sure how to go about finding myself a reasonably priced good quality mattress.

where might I find one of these "manufacturers" that sell high quality latex beds?

I really need one asap. Was thinking of going with the beauty rest then picking up a foam topper, and just have it be done with

so far the only foam beds I can find to try are
icomfort
tempurpedic (out of budget)
enso

thanks!

Hi frid,

There are a couple of threads with a list of mattress manufacturers in the NYC area but I thought I would amalgamate them in this thread so that they are all in a single thread with a "New York" title.

There is also a wide range of different types of manufacturers here from basic mattresses all the way to premium hand built models using lesser used materials such as horse hair. There are some very good choices here.

Factory direct mattress manufacturers or better retailers that are within reasonable driving range include ...

www.scottjordan.com/ New York, NY. Retail outlet for Berkeley Ergonomics mattresses which are high quality mattresses that include microcoils, latex, and pocket coils along with organic cotton and wool quilted covers in their designs. They have good quality and value and they are knowledgeable, experienced, and transparent and are a member of this site.

www.urbannatural.com/ Paramus, NJ. They are also retail outlet for Berkeley Ergonomics mattresses. They are also knowledgeable, experienced, and transparent and are also a member of this site.

www.shovlinmattress.com/ Fanwood, NJ. Makes a range of mattresses using innersprings, latex, and some custom foam mattresses and two "part latex" mattresses. They are also member of this site which means I think highly of them and are well worth a phone call or a visit.

Nest Beding New York, NY. They are a member of this site and are knowledgeable, experienced, and transparent and carry a range of mattresses including latex, memory foam, and latex and memory foam/pocket coil hybrids. Joe the owner is passionate about what he is doing and left a larger manufacturer that had a somewhat exaggerated focus on "green" mattresses to form his own company because he wanted to "do it right".

www.charlesprogers.com/ New York, NY and East Rutherford, NJ. Local manufacturer that makes a line of innerspring and memory foam mattresses (and make their own innersprings) including a latex/innerspring hybrid. They have told me that they are transparent about the materials they use but unfortunately when I asked for specifics I confirmed they don't disclose the density of the polyfoam they use in all their mattresses so for these mattresses there really isn't any way to know the quality/durability of their materials or make meaningful comparisons with other mattresses. This lack of transparency is fairly unusual with smaller independent manufacturers. Some of their mattresses are made in China and some (the Power Core mattresses) are made at their factory in NJ.

Helix Sleep New York. NY.
ADMIN NOTE:Removed 404 page link | Archived Footprint: helixsleep.com/nycshowroom
They make a single mattress that can be customized in many different ways to suit the needs and preferences of different people. They are normally sold online and you can see some comments about their mattress in post #2 here in the simplified choice mattress topic but they also have a showroom in New York City where you can test the different combinations in person.

www.wrightbedding.com/ New York, NY. They make a single mattress that is normally sold online but they also have a showroom in Lafayette so that those that are in the local area can test them in person. They use 1.5" of 4 lb, 10 ILD memory foam on top of 2" of 3 lb 18 ILD high performance polyfoam on top of 1.5" of 5 lb 20 ILD high performance polyfoam (the high performance polyfoam layers have similar properties to memory foam without the slow response) on top of a 6" 1.8 lb 30 ILD polyfoam base layer which are high quality materials that would be suitable for most weight ranges.

caspersleep.com/ New York, NY. They make a single mattress. They are also usually sold online but they have an office in New York so those that are local can test their mattresses in person.

www.norwalkmattress.com/ Norwalk, CT. Local manufacturer that makes a wide range of mattresses including latex and latex hybrids.

www.chbeckley.com/ New York, NY. Custom built including foam, natural and synthetic fibers

www.keetsa.com/ New York, NY. Manufactures innerspring latex (comfort layer)) and memory foam mattresses with a somewhat exaggerated "green" focus. I would be cautious about some of their mattresses which use lower quality/density materials.

www.mycustombedding.com/ Clark, NJ. Makes a range of hand built mattresses including natural fibers and latex.

www.whitelotushome.com/ Highland Park, NJ (and various retail outlets). Makes a range of high quality cotton, wool, and latex mattresses

info.ikea-usa.com See post #3 here for some of the better value here.

www.comfortbeddinginc.com/ Factory direct manufacturer with a showroom in Brooklyn that makes a range of innerspring mattress from lower to mid quality (see post #2 here ). Make sure you check foam densities here.

www.roomandboard.com/ Retail direct in New York, NY. Retail direct outlet for a range of mattresses made by Restwell

www.thecleanbedroom.com/ New York, NY. Retail outlet that carries a number of high quality latex and latex/innerspring hybrid mattresses including Savvy Rest component latex mattresses, Coco-mat, Naturepedic, Naturally Organic, Royal-Pedic, and OMI (Organicpedic). Many options available for some premium mattresses but they are also in a more premium price range. (NOTE ADDED: They closed in June, 2016 but they are now under new ownership and have reopened their New York store and will gradually open some of their other stores as well)

theorganicnest.com/ Retailer in Bernardsville, NJ. Carry several high quality latex mattresses and an innerspring/natural fiber mattress made by Land & Sky.

www.hcmattress.com/ Ridgewood, NJ., Mt Kisco, NY., Westport, Danbury, CT. Carries their own private label line of latex mattresses made by Restopedic that are well designed and high quality but also have a premium price. See post #21 here .

Other retail stores that may carry some better quality/value brands or models but would require some extra research, careful value comparisons, or good questions along with confirming the retailer's willingness and ability to answer them (along the lines of this article ) include ...

longsbedding.com/ New York, NY. Retail outlet that carries a range of mostly premium latex mattresses including their own house brand.

www.sleepworksny.com/ Massapequa. Retail outlet that carries several alternative brands that may have better value including Pure Latex Bliss, Therapedic, Ecosense, Gold bond

www.broadwayfuton.com/ Carle Place. Retailer that carries the Gold Bond line which may have some better value models.

www.hibernatebedding.com/ Bernardsville, NJ. Retailer that carries Savvy Rest component latex mattresses as well as OMI (Organicpedic) and Paramount mattresses.

www.chiromatic.com/ North Brunswick, NJ and Easterville, PA. Sells mainly innerspring and foam mattresses. By "appointment only" which can sometimes indicate higher prices compared to other similar mattresses

unitedbedding.com/ Wholesale manufacturer in Plainfield, NJ that makes Ditex and Rex brand mattresses and many house brands in the area as well. They make some better quality/value mattresses including memory foam (and gel memory foam), innerspring/polyfoam, and polyfoam mattresses. They will provide foam specs to their retailers so consumers can make meaningful comparisons with their mattresses and they have a retail store finder on their site to find the retailer that is closest to you.

puretalalaybliss.com/ National manufacturer of good qualityTalalay latex mattresses. The retail outlet finder on their site will give you the nearest retailers. Their specs are known and they use good quality materials but make sure you do some careful value comparisons.

There is also a list for the area around Monroe Township and NE New Jersey which is more "categorized" and has more detailed descriptions of some of these in post #7 here .

I would suggest first looking through the websites and then phoning the ones that most interest you and letting them know your budget and preferences and then visiting the ones that seem to offer choices that best "fit" what you are looking for. I would also confirm that they will provide you with the information you need about the quality of the materials in their mattresses (foam density in particular in the case of polyfoam and memory foam). You certainly have some very good and unique choices near you.

Hope this helps and feel free to post with your questions along the way. I would as much as possible resist the urge to "rush" as this is usually when decisions can be made that are not the best in the long term. Your mattress can affect not only how well you sleep but also how you feel when you are awake and what you purchase now can have an affect on both of these for many years.

Re: any local manufacturers near nyc? 03 Dec 2014 21:24 #4

Hi Phoenix,
A quick question: I spend a night visiting friends in Boston on their sofa bed and had no pain. The mattress is made from has a HDHR foam. I started looking around for it but could not find any mattresses in New York or information about it. I found Pure Crafted beds in Michigan but by reading their website I could not understand if they really are natural and their foam is a good quality and better solution then latex. I am still wondering why I felt better on that bed. It was both giving in and supportive, more flexible then latex.
I would deeply appreciate your opinion about that company if you know it and about HDHR foam.
Many thanks,
Lina

Hi Lina,

A quick question: I spend a night visiting friends in Boston on their sofa bed and had no pain. The mattress is made from has a HDHR foam. I started looking around for it but could not find any mattresses in New York or information about it.


HD means high density and HR means high resilience and these are two different grades of polyfoam. There is no HDHR polyfoam. You can read a little more about HD and HR polyfoam in this article and in this article .

There would be no way for me to know which mattress you are referring to since these materials (especially HD polyfoam) are very common in mattresses. The only way to track it down would be knowing the name of the manufacturer who made it.

I found Pure Crafted beds in Michigan but by reading their website I could not understand if they really are natural and their foam is a good quality and better solution then latex.


Polyfoam (or memory foam) is never a natural material and is made mostly from petrochemicals. You can see the foam quality guidelines that I would suggest using in post #4 here and as you can see the polyfoam and the memory foam used in the Pure Crafted Beds are all high quality materials and there are no weak links in their mattresses.

The choice of materials in a mattress is always a personal preference and there are many different designs for each type of mattress so a mattress that works well for one person may be completely unsuitable for someone else to sleep on. The only way to know for certain whether any mattress is a good match for you would be based on your own personal testing or experience (see mattress firmness/comfort levels in post #2 here ).

Pure Crafted Beds is a member here which means that I think highly of them and I believe they compete well with the best in the industry . You can see some thoughts about them in post #2 here

I am still wondering why I felt better on that bed. It was both giving in and supportive, more flexible then latex.


It would have been partly because the design of the mattress would have been a good match for you in terms of PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences) and partly that you seem to prefer the "feel" of the materials that were in it.

Re: any local manufacturers near nyc? 06 Dec 2014 00:17 #6

hi, t looks like it never ends but as I keep reading your reply in different topics I find more and more information but there I have more questions. I just discovered recommended by you SleepEz, they look good.
1. Did I understood your comment correctly that their mattresses are very similar in quality to Savvy Rest? The prize difference is impressive. They are also less expensive then Asrobeds. Does it mean that the mattresses have less quality?
2. my previous question: Does three layers make it much more better, more comfortable and supportive then 2 layers? The three layers are more expensive but is it worst it?
Thank you,
Lina

Re: any local manufacturers near nyc? 06 Dec 2014 04:11 #7

Hi Lina,

I would make sure that you've read the mattress shopping tutorial here .

1. Did I understood your comment correctly that their mattresses are very similar in quality to Savvy Rest? The prize difference is impressive.


Yes ... you can read more about how they compare in post #4 here .

They are also less expensive then Asrobeds. Does it mean that the mattresses have less quality?


I'm guessing you mean Astrabeds? If that's correct then you can see some of my comments about Astrabeds and some of their sister companies in post #2 here and in post #3 here and a forum search on Astrabeds (you can just click this) will bring up more information about them as well. They have recently introduced a new latex lineup that uses organic Dunlop latex (see posts #6 and #7 here )

There is more about the most important parts of the "value" of a mattress purchase in post #13 here that will help you make more meaningful comparisons between mattresses.

The quality of a mattress and how it compares to other mattresses depends on the type and quality of the materials inside it and often has very little to do with the price of the mattress. For example the Astrabeds HarmonyBed includes three 3" layers of 100 % natural organic Dunlop inside a cotton zip cover quilted with wool and is listed for $2199 in queen. It would be most closely comparable to the SleepEZ 10" natural latex mattress with 100% natural Dunlop layers (they also have Talalay latex available as an option as well) which lists for $1750 (less an additional 5% discount for the forum members here) except the Dunlop latex wouldn't be certified organic. The quality, performance, and durability of 100% natural Dunlop and 100% natural organic Dunlop is the same except for the organic certification itself so you would need to decide whether the additional cost for an organic certification was worth it to you. You can read more about organic Dunlop and the different types and blends of latex in post #6 here .

2. my previous question: Does three layers make it much more better, more comfortable and supportive then 2 layers? The three layers are more expensive but is it worst it?


There is more about the effect of thickness in post #14 here . Whether it's "worth it" to you or not would depend on whether two layers or three layers was a better match for you in terms of PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences).

The best way to decide on the type of latex, how many layers, or the firmness level for each layer that would be best for you would be based on your own personal testing on a specific mattress (or a mattress that was closely comparable). When you can't test a mattress in person then the best way to decide the type, number, and firmness of the layers that would be best for you would be based on a more detailed conversation with a knowledgeable and experienced online manufacturer who can help "talk you through" the options they have available that would have the best chance of success based on the "averages" of their customers that are similar to you.

Factory Direct mattress manufacturers near New York City, NY 07 Dec 2014 03:20 #8

Phoenix, since you put together an amalgamated list of NYC-area manufacturers/retailers in this thread, I would add Healthy Choice to the list. It's the only place I found in my research that sells an all latex mattress in the Northern NYC suburbs (where the OP said he/she was from). We had a good experience there and have really liked our mattress in the four months or so we have owned it.

They are already on several lists (including the Monroe/Newark, NJ list and the White Plains/Scarsdale, NY list and Connecticut list but I agree it makes sense to add them to the New York City, NY list as well which I've done.

Thanks for the suggestion :)

WJ Southard also has a few retailers within driving distance of NYC (though not right in the city or boroughs). They make all-organic all-latex, if that's what someone is looking for!
