If California were a mattress, it would be the Crystal Cove mattress from Brentwood Home. It exudes a laid-back aesthetic that is welcoming and stylish. This mattress gets its looks from the Crystal Cove Yoga collection which includes the yoga bolster pillow, pranayama pillow, and meditation pillow. This is the first mattress in their line that is not tufted. People looking for a smooth sleeping surface will enjoy this feel.
Ordering The Crystal Cove Mattress
This mattress is only available through Brentwood Home’s website. Since all of their mattresses are made on demand, it will take about a week and a half to arrive at your door. It will come in a box like the one below. I don’t really rave about boxes and of course they don’t affect the quality of the mattress but the quality of the box is an indicator that they pay attention to the details which will matter in a mattress.
This is what it looks like out of the box. This mattress is super heavy and also heavily compressed so extra wrapping needs to be done to keep it from coming loose in the box. A queen size weighs 128 lbs.
This picture was taken soon after opening the mattress. It springs to life quickly because it literally has springs. This is a mattress that you can sleep on a few hours after opening because there really isn’t that much foam in it.
Overview of the Crystal Cove Mattress
In the video below I show you the inside of the mattress. I am sitting on the plush side which has the charcoal-infused foam at the top. The firm side has a layer of Dunlop latex at the top. I don’t think there would ever be a reason to access the inside or take off the cover though.
This mattress comes with a 120-night trial where you can try it out in the comfort of your home and if you don’t like it, just contact them and they will facilitate an easy return. You do not have to pack it up and ship it back. Brentwood also offers a 25-year warranty. This company has been around much longer than most online brands and they are a mattress manufacturer that makes their own mattresses so you can have peace of mind that this company should be around for another 25 years to honor their warranty.

My Crystal Cove Findings
The videos below illustrate bounce and motion transfer on each side of the mattress. Both sides will have bounce due to the coil system in the middle. Here’s the plush side first. The plus side has charcoal infused foam. The charcoal can help with cooling and with flushing toxins out of the body. Whether or not that will happen underneat the cover of the mattress is uncertain but charcoal also can keep the mattress fresh which is a bonus over traditional foam.
Here’s’ the firm side. It has slightly more bounce because it has a layer of latex at the top. What you will notice is that you sort of float more on the firm side. Latex is instantly responsive to no waiting for it to adapt to your body and it is also easier to move around on than foam.
The video below shows you how each component of the mattress works.
My Crystal Cove Recommendation
There are so many choices out there when it comes to buying a mattress. It’s just overwhelming. So, here are 5 reasons you should be considering a Crystal Cove mattress.
- You aren’t sure what firmness will work for you or your firmness preferences fluctuate.
- You are looking for a luxury guest bed where you can offer your guests choice of firmness.
- You prefer a smooth sleeping surface.
- You aren’t sure if foam or latex is right for you.
- You like a natural mattress but also appreciate the benefits of foam.
In terms of overall feel. I really enjoy the plush side with the foam. It has a unique feel that will appeal to side sleepers. Stomach and back sleepers will probably prefer the firm side with latex. The stretch knit cover is stretchy enough to give you the full benefits of the layers underneath and the hand stitched handles on each side make flipping the mattress much easier.
This mattress will cost more than other brands but in this case you get what you pay for and more. You get two quality mattresses in one and all the craftsmanship and high-end design that comes from Brentwood Home. In my opinion, they are becoming a boutique luxury online mattress brand that has yet to meet their match.
