This mattress is a great choice for those occasions when you want a good mattress, but don’t need all of the expensive adornments! This is a high quality yet simply-made mattress that won’t disappoint. So if you’re looking for a comfortable, traditional style mattress that is modestly topped with cushioning foam (and available in firm or plush), this Coil Mattress will work well for you. It is 10 Inches high, and can be easily and affordably paired with a foundation or with a platform bed. (We carry both for your convenience, and we sell mattress only, as well as mattress sets)
Mattress Construction…What’s it Made Of?
460 Coil Count (based on queen size)
4 Inch Foam Encasing
Certified LOW VOC
This product is CertiPUR certified. That means it has no phthalates, no heavy metals, and uses the safest flame retardants available. No formaldehyde and low VOC, so you can rest assured.
Benefit of Materials
We’ve noticed over the years that people tend to classify mattresses in 3 general ways: Good enough for kids (sometimes they need to be changed before they have a chance to outgrow them, and they are lightweight and seem to be able to sleep just about anywhere), Good enough for in-laws (striving for comfort and no complaints), and Good enough for your own bed (extra features usually welcome and appreciated here).
The beauty of this mattress is its upgraded simplicity. Usually an innerspring in this price range is only 7 or 8 inches, and mattresses that height just don’t seem to be comfortable enough. This one is nice because it’s 10 Inches high, so if you’ve been using something close to that, you can avoid having to buy new sheets and bedding with higher lofts (loft is the corner height of the mattress or sheets to indicate how deep). Traditional style sheets usually fit mattresses 7-10 inches, and deep pocket sheets are generally needed for 11 Inches and up, but that can vary so it’s good to check.
This mattress is good for a guest room, or any other arrangement that 5-7 years of use is expected. It’s is available in PLUSH or FIRM for the same price, so you just need to choose if you prefer soft and flexible or firm and supportive. Side sleepers sometimes benefit from a softer mattress, while back sleepers seem to prefer more rigidity.

More on Types of Mattresses
Several terms are used to describe the support and comfort level of a mattress. Although these terms can very slightly, they are used universally to communicate what you desire or need in a mattress.
Firm: Strong support with a minimal amount of comfort padding
Plush: Strong support with a softer feel and moderate comfort padding
Pillow Top: An additional cushioned layer that is sewn separately yet atop the mattress base
Euro Top: Similar to a pillow top, but uses a box cushion construction and has less separation between the top and mattress base
Summit Top: Gusseted, knife edge construction and has a distinctive separation between the top and the mattress base.
