Set up test

The Cedar mattress comes compressed and rolled in a box. It took us just under 2 minutes to set up. It was a little on the heavy side, but it puffed to life instantly upon unboxing.  For an additional fee, Brentwood Home offers white glove delivery.

So for ease of the set-up, we give the Brentwood Home Cedar a 7.5.

Motion Transfer Test

Part A - The Humans

While on the Cedar mattress, both Mark and Tavy felt some motion from one another’s movements. They gave it a collective score of 6.75.

Part B - The Wine

The Cedar mattress had a little trouble handling its wine – things were a little tipsy… We gave it a 6 for our wine test.

So for the total motion transfer test, we give the Cedar mattress a 6.4.

Edge Support Test

Part A - The Shoe Test

When on the edge of the Cedar mattress, Mark and Tavy felt it did not maintain its structure well noting it felt like it was “sagging.” They scored it a 5 out of 10 for the edge shoe test.

Part B - The Side Test

Mark and Tavy found it a little difficult to lay on the edge of the Cedar. Tavy told us she felt the edge dipping making her feel unstable. Mark told us, “I felt like I was going to fall off.”

So for the edge support side, the Cedar mattress scored a 5 out 10 again.

So for the total edge-support score, the Cedar mattress gets a 5.

Pressure Relief Test

We saw mainly blue and green on Mark with only a tad of yellow in his shoulders, indicating areas of low pressure! So we gave him an 8 out of 10 for pressure relief.

We saw a little yellow in Tavy’s shoulders, and some red in her hips, so we gave her a 7.5 for pressure relief.

We saw no red in Mark and only the slightest hint of yellow in his shoulder. So we give him an 8 for pressure relief.

So for the total pressure relief score, the Cedar mattress gets a 7.75.

Spine Alignment Test

The Cedar mattress did a decent job of keeping both Mark and Tavy’s spines in alignment. There was only a slight curve towards the base of the neck.

So for spine alignment, we give the Cedar an 8.25 out of 10.

Responsiveness Test

According to Mark and Tavy, there seemed to be a slight delay in the Cedar’s response rate.

They scored the Cedar a 7.25 out of 10 for responsiveness.

A look inside

The Cedar Mattress is a hybrid made of 100% natural materials. Inside, you will find an all-natural latex layer that is computer designed into layers for targeted pressure relief and individually wrapped coils.

  • Organic Cotton Cover: This top layer is hand-tufted to secure layers without chemical adhesives.
  • Organic Cotton Fiber Quilting: As opposed to competitors that use of foam, the Cedar uses cotton to keep their mattress green.
  • New Zealand Wool: Wicks away moisture and regulates body temperature in any season.
  • 2” All-Natural Latex Layer: This latex layer creates the “medium” firmness feel of the mattress. It is made with Dunlop latex, which allows for increased air circulation.
  • 2” Grooved All-Natural Latex: The second all-natural latex layer is computer designed and cut into 3 targeted zones to create precise comfort for your lower back, legs and shoulders.
  • All-Natural Flaxseed Fiber Pad: As opposed to synthetic padding for support, the Cedar uses natural flaxseed fibers to separate the latex and coils.
  • 8” Individually Wrapped Coils: This layer of individually wrapped pocket coils provides support in the lumbar region, motion isolation, and edge support to prevent sagging. 
  • 1” Coconut Husk Support Layer: The Cedar mattress traded the traditional foam base for this eco-friendly and sustainable layer of organic coconut husk. Coconut husk is usually discarded as waste, but Brentwood Home has given it a whole new purpose. This material was specifically chosen for its circulation and antimicrobial properties.

What Cedar customers have to say

  • “The materials and construction are great. I love the organic cotton cover and the latex gives great pressure relief and bounce (without a lot of motion transfer), and it sleeps very cool, especially compared to the memory foam I was using before. There was NO smell, even immediately after opening it.” – Sarah F.
  • “Not only is it comfortable but the quality goods used in making the mattress makes me sleep better at night. Not having to offgas the mattress when it arrived seems like a no brainer when it comes to the place you sleep for 1/4 of your life.” – Lee S.
  • “This mattress combines a perfect level of support and cushion for side-sleeping. I am able to sleep through the night with no discomfort. This is further facilitated by knowing I am also surrounded in all-natural materials, thoughtfully made in LA.” – Mace B.
