Cantoni Mattress made by Berkeley Ergonomics

For anyone in Southern California or elsewhere looking for the Berkeley Ergonomics product at a great deal, I found it at a store in Irvine called Cantoni. The price was better than anywhere else (I checked three different stores) on this all natural and organic product. The latex is from Europe and has no fillers, the cotton cover is organic. As you may or may not know, wool is the best natural FR (fireproofing) you can buy and has no toxic chemicals in it. The wool in the Berkeley bed is generous and all natural and the coil system, as explained by Cantoni's highly knowledgeable mattress specialist Richard, is from Sweden and is dual tempered carbide steel - built like a tank. The Berkeley Ergonomics bed comes with a 10 year non-prorated warranty, but I have been told by many customers while doing my research that the mattress has lasted them 14+ years thus far. After a year of my own research, I am sold on this product. I have tested every organic mattress by Savvy Rest, Natura, Naturepedic, Vi-Spring (Cantoni carries this as well - but it's out of my price range). For price, cleanliness, durability and comfort, the Berkeley Ergonomics product just can't be beat. I hope my extensive research helps some of you find your next mattress and happy shopping! :) Wildon

P.S. I have included a picture that I shot while at Cantoni. The bed on the left is the deluxe with a Euro Topper. If you buy it with the topper, you can turn the topper instead of the entire bed, which is better on the back for sure! As Richard explained to me, he has had many customers just buy a new topper after 10 plus years at a fraction of the cost of a new bed. The bed underneath stays unblemished and the topper takes 90% of the bodies abuse.

Hi wildon1,

I've switched your post into its own topic and deleted your other 6 posts which were overly promotional and were mostly duplicates and on the edge of spamming the forum ... both of which are against the rules of the forum here .

Cantoni does sell 2 mattresses made by Berkeley Ergonomics but they are finished mattresses that don't have a zip cover and are not component mattresses like the regular Berkeley Ergonomics line and are not directly comparable to the other Berkeley Ergonomics mattresses. They don't have the same ability to customize the mattress by changing various layers or components so they can't be customized in the same way as the "regular" BE mattresses. This is also the reason that they aren't listed on the retail finder on the Berkeley Ergonomics site.

Having said that ... if they use the same materials as the other Berkeley Ergonomics mattresses (natural latex, pocket coils, microcoils, and organic cotton covers that are quilted with wool) then there would be no lower quality materials or weak links that would compromise the durability and useful life of the mattress.

I'm glad you are happy with your new mattress purchase (and congratulations on your new mattress) and your mattress certainly uses good quality materials but each person can have very ideas about the parts of their personal value equation that are most important to them and which mattress they believe is the "best value" for their own unique criteria and circumstances.

Please be cautious when you are posting here to make sure your posts are within the forum rules.

Question: If the Cantoni bed doesn't have the zippered compartment, how are the top layers able to be flipped or switched out as the salesperson promotes?

Hi AnalogJ,

Question: If the Cantoni bed doesn't have the zippered compartment, how are the top layers able to be flipped or switched out as the salesperson promotes?


They can't be. I think they may have been referring to flipping the topper (or replacing it down the road) to help with longevity.
