Q & A with a customer who purchased a natural mattress and bed   Natural Mattress: Home > Q & A with a customer who purchased a natural mattress and bed


Christine, 32 lives in Sydney with her partner Luke, 34.


1. What were you sleeping on before you got your new sleep system?

Before I received my sleep system from Beyond Furniture, I was sleeping on an inner-spring mattress on a flat base that I bought with my bed about 9 or 10 years ago. It wasn’t a particularly good quality mattress and by the end, it was very uncomfortable.


2. What do you look for in a mattress?

The main thing for me was that I didn’t want to make the same mistake as before, by focusing on the bed and getting any old mattress. I prefer a softer feel but with enough support to allow for an undisturbed sleep. A mattress that is cosy, yet supportive.


3. Why did you choose a Grand Soleil Mattress?

I needed new bed frame as I wanted to upgrade from a double to a queen size, and therefore required a new mattress too.

After researching all the mattresses on the market, I decided that I didn’t want another inner-spring mattress because of the dust-mite and hygiene reasons and I had heard from a couple of friends that their latex mattresses are very hot to sleep on. When I found out that the Dorsal mattresses are totally natural, breathable and dust-mite resistant, it was a no-brainer.


4. What sleep system did you choose?

After testing all the mattresses and slat combinations in the Crows Nest store, I decided to go with a Queen Triocell Medium mattress, Sleepdry Cover, Super Slats, and a Linea Bed.


5. Did you purchase pillows?

Yes, I needed new pillows and I really liked the feel of the Triocell Softcare ‘Soap’ pillow.


6. Did you have any concerns about the sleep system prior to purchasing? What were the outcomes?

My only slight concern was that perhaps the mattress would feel too soft because I was comparing it to the firm inner-spring mattress I had been sleeping on for the past 10 years. Purchasing the adjustable slats was the best idea because I can decide how firm or soft I want it. This feature made me feel more confident in purchasing as I knew I wouldn’t be stuck with something too firm or too soft – I could just adjust it at home to suit.


7. What are your favourite aspects of your new sleep system?

It’s a tie between my adjustable Super Slats and the fact that I can remove the mattress cover and wash it at home. My partner prefers a slightly firmer mattress so his side of the bed is adjusted to a firmer setting whereas my side is a little more flexible.


8. Have you noticed any major differences in your sleep?

I seem to sleep a lot deeper now. I used to move around a lot and swap from one side to the other a few times a night to get comfortable. Now, I fall asleep faster and sleep without waking. I also feel well-rested each morning which is a big difference because I have never been a morning person!


9. Would you recommend Grand Soleil mattresses to your friends or family?

I have already sent my friend and her husband in to test them out and would definitely recommend them to anyone in the market for a new sleep system.
