Are Avocado and Nest related or at least using the same latex mattress manufacturer?

In doing some research I see that they are both based in NYC, both build latex hybrids on demand and ship from the west coast.

Hi Hammer.

While Nest Bedding and Avocado both carry hybrid mattresses they are two separate not "related" manufacturers. Nest is west coast based manufacturer with a strong retail presence throughout the country including NYC. Avocado is making one type of mattress only (somewhere near LA) that uses 100% natural Dunlop latex sourced from LIEN A, a foam producer in Southeast Vietnam (for reference see AG own website here and here ). Nest on the other hand has a large selection of mattress types (including hybrid) Their all latex and hybrid latex lineups can be made with Talalay and/or Dunlop .

Isn't Nest Bedding still affiliated with Brooklyn Bedding? I know when I ordered my Nest several months ago it was shipped from BB's manufacturing facility in AZ. I also see on Nest's site that they do have some joint showrooms. The mattress industry is quite interesting, like this situation where in their joint showrooms the two brands of similarly priced mattresses would be directly competing with each other.

Hi Sweet Dreams.

You are correct ... the "affiliation" did not change ... Nest Bedding's mattresses are made and partially owned by Brooklyn Bedding ( see this article here ), I remember us discussing this sometimes last year ... there it is Post #2 here .

Hi Phoenix,

Simply a quick follow-up on our Nest Hybrid Latex mattress. We're eagerly awaiting the launch of Nest's revised latex lineup starting in July. In the meantime, my fiancee and I seem to be stuck. I'm finding the mattress itself with the 28 ILD medium Talalay latex top layer to be fine (5'10" & 140 lbs), but my fiancee (5'3" & 130 lbs) finds it too firm - giving her shoulder pain.

We tried the 3" 19 ILD soft Talalay latex topper that Nest sent us, which we placed on top of the mattress to help soften it. My fiancee liked the topper better, but it proved too soft for me - giving me significant lower back pain.

While we're waiting for Nest's revised latex lineup, we're wondering if we swapped out the top latex layer in the mattress itself for a 24 ILD Talalay latex instead, so that our mattress were configured as follows, might that be the sweet spot to provide my fiancee with enough softness, while still providing me with enough support? Or would the shift from 28 ILD down to 24 ILD be not that significant/noticeable of a difference - or still provide us with some comfort issues/challenges?

Revised Nest Hybrid Latex Mattress:
1" - Wool and Cotton Quilted Zip Top
3" - 24ILD-Medium Oeko-tex Certified Talalay Latex
8" - Quantum Edge Support Pocketed Coils
1" - 1.8lb Transitional Foam

Thank you!

Hi NestHaven,

Replacing the 28ILD comfort layer with the softer 24 ILD in the revised configuration you listed could be a good solution for ensuring comfort/support needs for both you and your fiancé. As you seem to primarily side sleeping (30% back sleepers) I am guessing from what you are describing that this configuration could provide enough pressure relief to help your fiancé’s shoulder pressure point relief, but still ensure support and good alignment and prevent your lower back pains in the morning. While having only 3” of 24 ILD Talalay comfort layer could work very well for you (as opposed to the 6” comfort thickness with the added softer topper where both the extra thickness and softness may have contributed to your lack of primary deep support) I’d still try to assess how close you are to the edge of where you’d lose/keep support and also how close your fiancé is from losing/keeping comfort. If either of you is too close to this edge you can always use the split configuration the system has to offer and fine tune it to what previously worked for each of you separately.

I reached out to Nest today for their reworked lineups new specifications and I’ll return here to add anything else that could be helpful to you.

Looking forward to your future updates and finding out how the new configuration is working out for you.

Much appreciated on the follow-up response, Phoenix. And if you happen to get the new specifications for Nest's reworked lineups, we'd greatly appreciate those as well.

Thank you!
