Deciding between memory foam and latex for your new mattress? Our Loom & Leaf vs Zenhaven mattress comparison helps you decide.
Loom & Leaf and Zenhaven are both mattress brands from the luxury online mattress company Saatva. The original Saatva innerspring mattress performed so well on the market that the company launched into memory foam and latex.
Nowadays, we consider the Loom & Leaf a top-rated memory foam mattress and the Zenhaven a top-rated latex mattress. Both are made to order in the USA with high-quality materials, but otherwise they couldn’t be more different. That’s why we’re performing an in-depth comparison of these two luxury mattresses.

The Zenhaven mattress is constructed with Talalay latex, which is softer than Dunlop or synthetic latex. It feels both pliable and bouncy. The Loom & Leaf mattress has a more traditional foam feel. You’ll feel cradled by the relaxed firm option and supported above the mattress on the firm option.
Check out how the relaxed firm Loom & Leaf and Zenhaven mattresses compare across 14 performance categories. We used a weighted average of all the scores to determine each mattress’s total score.
|Loom & Leaf||Zenhaven|
|Motion Transfer Test||5||7|
|Edge Support Test||6.5||9|
|Pressure Relief Test||7||8|
|Spinal Alignment Test||9||8|
|Customer Service Score||9||9|
|Social Impact Score||7||7|
Motion transfer is an important category for couples and light sleepers. A restless sleeping partner can cause the mattress to rock and shake, which disrupts the sleep of anyone else on the mattress.
The Zenhaven earned a higher score in this category, so it’s a better choice for sleepers concerned about motion isolation.
The Zenhaven mattress earned a near-perfect score for edge support. Our testers felt comfortable lying and sitting on the edge of the bed. The Loom & Leaf mattress received an average score for edge support. It provides good support for those lying near the edge of the bed but not sitting on the side of the bed.
Both mattresses received relatively high scores for pressure relief, with the Zenhaven outperforming the Loom & Leaf by one point. We think the luxury plush side of the Zenhaven is best for stomach and side sleepers, while the gentle firm side is better for back sleepers or heavier stomach sleepers. The Loom & Leaf better for back or stomach sleepers with light to average body types.
Latex is naturally temperature regulating, so it’s no surprise that the Zenhaven scored higher for cooling. Both of these mattresses received above average scores in the cooling category, thanks to intentional cooling features, but the Zenhaven is better for those who sleep particularly warm.
The Zenhaven soft side is best for side sleepers and the gentle firm side supports heavyweight sleepers. The Loom & Leaf relaxed firm option is best for back sleepers and stomach sleepers. You’ll save hundreds on the Loom & Leaf mattress. Zenhaven works better for couples and hot sleepers.
Fortunately, you get a 180-night sleep trial, free white glove delivery, and easy returns with either mattress. Zenhaven customers are protected by a warranty that is 20 years, versus 15 years for the Loom & Leaf customers.
