Floyd made a name for itself with the launch of its modular bed frame. Since then, the Detroit based company has launched other household furniture including their recently launched mattress. This mattress pairs perfectly with the Floyd Bed Frame since it has grippers on the bottom to keep it from sliding around on the wooden planks and it comes shipped in a box which is in keeping with the mission of the company to create durable, portable furniture at a competitive price. A queen size Floyd mattress retails for $1,095 before any discounts. Overall this is a well-constructed hybrid mattress designed to appeal to all types of sleepers.

Overview of the Floyd Mattress

Below is a video overview of the mattress. I set it up on the Floyd Bed so that you can see how it looks as a bundle.

Construction of the Floyd Mattress

Floyd Mattress Construction

Cooling top cover
Eco-friendly Tencel top that’s softer than silk, cooler than linen and ultra-breathable.

Copper Graphite Memory Foam
Open cell CertiPUR-US memory foam infused with copper and graphite naturally dissipates heat and relieves pressure points

Zone Support Pocketed Coils
Over 1,000 super breathable pocketed coils that bend and flex to contour and support your body. Layered with CertiPUR-US transition foam that further stabilize the coils and reduce motion transfer for a deep, relaxing sleep.

Perimeter Edge Support
Firm, high-gauge perimeter coils ensure edge-to-edge support and stability.

Non-Slip Bottom Cover
Platform beds rejoice. The bottom cover provides a non-slip material to keep the mattress in place.

My Floyd Mattress Findings

This mattress has a true medium-firm feel. You don’t sink in a whole bunch with this mattress as you can see below when I put my 14 lb. bowling ball on it. Since you don’t sink much and because they are using a copper and graphite layer of foam at the top, it also sleeps cool.

Floyd Sinkage

Here’s another shot of me pushing into the mattress to illustrate sinkage.

Here you can see how well the top layer of foam conforms. Below this layer is a transition layer that serves as a buffer layer for the coil system. You really don’t need more foam than this unless you prefer a really plush feel or need more layers to accommodate heavier sleepers.

Floyd Top Layers

I’m laying down on my side in the picture below and this mattress does a good job with pressure relief. However, it doesn’t sink quite a much as other hybrids like the soft version of the Winkbed or the Allswell Luxe but if you have the right pillow it will still work great for side sleeping.

Floyd Side Sleeping

This mattress has good edge support because of the coil system. This is important if you are using the Floyd Bed frame because the profile of the frame is longer than the mattress.

My Floyd Mattress Recommendation

Floyd has done a really good job with their mattress considering they don’t claim to be a mattress company first. I could tell that they put a lot of thought into the design and feel. I think it was a really smart choice to go with a hybrid construction over foam as it will have more appeal, offer better support and sleep cool. If you are looking to update your bedroom, I would take a look at their bundles where you can get a considerable discount when purchasing together. Both the bed and mattress come with a 30-day trial.
