We have been searching for a mattress for quite some time. The only mattress that we both unequivocally
. It is rather firm, supportive, non-bouncy, doesn't transfer motion, and in general felt very 'solid' and comfortable. But Kluft is one of those luxury brands that doesn't seem to publish much on how the mattresses are constructed, and we can't find any reviews of this model or even any other reviews of high-end Kluft latex mattresses. After a few poor mattress choices, we're worried about divots in the bed in a short amount of time, or other general construction problems. Do you have experience with Kluft mattresses, particularly their latex models? Or have any advice on buying this brand in particular?
Assume price isn't the primary concern, and the in-store price of the mattress is much less than the online price claims. I've spent lots of time in the Mattress Underground
and Sleep Like the Dead
but there isn't much info on this brand or model, beyond the general worry that they're overpriced (which may simply be that they're expensive, or
it might be that they're severely overpriced for quality) and the fact that they once offered an insane mattress at $33k. Beyond that it's been hard to find information about the longevity of their mattresses, or experiences with their guarantees.
This is the content, from the manufacturer's customer service email:
- Comfort level: medium firm
- 1" Celsion tri-zoned Talalay latex
- 6" Hybrid core (3" Engeria latex/3" reflex green)
- 8-way hand tied box spring
- Mattress height: 13.5" one sided no flip-mattress / 23" set
So there is 1" of latex at the top (not much) over 6" of "hybrid core" which is presumably some kind of latex and other foam called reflex green. It probably has some kind of HD polyfoam at the base to make up the remaining support, but that isn't specified.
Kluft apparently has a good guarantee, but in my experience these things always seem better than they are in reality, so we're not basing all that much on the guarantee.
We're not super keen to buy a mattress without having tried it, like the favorite Ultimate Dreams
/ Brooklyn Bedding latex mattress
, but that's on the table too. It seems like those tend to be on the firmer side too.
Most mattresses are far too soft for us. We haven't been able to try a 100% latex mattress so perhaps that should be our next step.
Can you tell me anything about Kluft mattresses, or their latex mattresses in particular? Does it seem to be a bad idea to purchase a luxury bed like this, without knowing how it is constructed?
