Octaspring: Next Gen Mattress

I haven’t covered a product launch in a long, long time but yesterday’s introduction to Canada of Dormeo Octaspring mattresses from Belgium was right up my alley.

Truth be told, I have a “thing” for mattresses: some people dream about owning a Porche or a Ferrari, I dream about owning a Hästens. But this post isn’t about Hästens, it’s about Octaspring and their revolutionary mattresses which combine memory foam with a patented foam spring technology that provides support and comfort while letting the mattress breathe. In the pic at the top of this page you can see the venting panels running around the middle of the mattress.

Available exclusively at Sleep Country Canada, Octaspring mattresses come in varying thicknesses priced from $2,800 to $4,200. Certainly not cheap but still less than half the price of my most coveted sleep platform.

So what did I think? The Octasprings I laid on yesterday felt great, an intriguing mix of soft and firm but of course you can’t make a $4,000 decision based on a quick recline. So Octaspring mattresses come with a 60-day trial period and money-back guarantee if you conclude that it’s not the mattress for you.

It just so happens that my current mattress is nearing retirement age although unfortunately my travel budget supercedes my mattress budget at the moment. However, if Octaspring or Sleep Country would like to discuss blog/product sponsorship opportunities I would be wide open to the possibility (wink).

    Good morning CHRIS, nicely done Bill Laidlaw, I am looking for a mattress myself and I will surely check out Nine Clouds…Gayle of mattresses are important and most just buy without much thought

    I bought my last two mattresses at sleep country, didn’t even know about nine clouds. Very I interested in this new technology, my tempur gets very hot, maybe the venting is the answer

    I’m not joking but Ikea’s top of the line mostly organic latex core/cotton covered mattresses are amazing. I don’t by standard mattresses due to fears of off gassing etc since I have small children and I forked out about $4000 for a fancy organic latex blah blah Canadian mattress. It’s pretty good. Then I found the ikea ones and looked at their “ingredient list” – I was impressed so I bought them for my kids (I believe they were about $800 each for a twin, I don’t know how that compares to a normal mattress in terms of price). In terms of comfort, they’re better than our fancy one. Would recommend you check it out if you’re in a pinch.

    Does anyone know how long does a mattress last before you need a new one. My mattress is still excellent after ten years. I bought a top of the line at that time.

    Good Morning. This is from the Sleep Country website, sound advice
    for MAGDA :)
    The mattress industry used to tell you to replace your mattress every 8 to 10 years, and later changed that to every 5 to 7 years. You are the best judge of exactly when to replace your mattress in this time frame. Your decision should be based primarily on the condition of the mattress and your comfort, but keep other aspects in mind, too.

    Further to my last comment, I heard they’ve been talking about toxic dust which comes in part from furniture foam being found in unacceptable amounts in Canadian homes. I do believe standard mattresses are a health hazard and that in the future they’ll go the way of VOCs and BPA etc. If you’re buying, might be worth looking into and investing in.

    Thanks so much for your responses.

    sounds good but the price is extremely too much even for your lower price range. Yes, you guides will get very rich off of us.

    Any good mattress will be $1500+. May sound like a lot up front but when you consider that you spend a third of your life sleeping… and when you ask yourself how much is a good nights sleep worth… and how many years a mattress lasts… the cost is nothing. I’m very curious about the octaspring. Seems like it could be the best of both worlds. I’m interested in foam but concerned about heat and too much sinking.
