What Makes Nolah Different?

Proprietary AirFoam™ with Proven Performance

The Nolah mattress is made with a patent-pending memory foam called AirFoam™. AirFoam™ is a temperature neutral material, meaning it doesn’t trap heat like traditional memory foam. Although it’s technically foam, AirFoam™ has the buoyancy of latex.

In fact, the AirFoam™ used to construct the Nolah mattress has been proven* to relieve pressure in the hips and back 4x times better than traditional memory foam mattresses. Additionally, testing on the Nolah mattress has found it to be 300% more durable than high-end memory foam mattresses.

You can read more about the air foam used in the Nolah mattress here.

*Note: these are results of tests conducted by Nolah.

One For One Adoption

In the United States alone, it is believed more than 500 animal species have gone extinct due to human involvement. Because of the importance biodiversity plays in the health of our world, Nolah adopts one wildlife animal for every mattress sold. The best part? You get to choose the animal you’d like to adopt. You’ll even receive your very own adoption certificate.

Nolah makes this possible through their partnership with Defenders of Wildlife. Before you complete the checkout process, you will be prompted to choose which animal you would like to be adopted. We chose a penguin!

What to watch out for

  • Be aware that the Nolah mattress may have a mild scent when you unbox it – this is normal and should go away within a few hours.

Customer Reviews on the Nolah Mattress

I have a queen Nolah mattress and have been sleeping on it for a few weeks now, and it’s been a really wonderful mattress. You barely feel any of that “sinking” that people so often associate with memory foam mattresses. There is quite a lot of bounce and support to the mattress. It also sleeps extremely cool…When my girlfriend stays over, we wake up and go to bed at slightly different times, but we don’t disturb each other because there is little motion transfer. Very satisfied! David F.
I have slept on a foam mattress before, but it wasn’t as comfortable as my new Nolan mattress. It’s soft, but firm enough to where I don’t sink in too much making it hard to get out of bed. I don’t wake up with my sides hurting anymore since the mattress contours really well to my body. Bikramjeet V.
This side-sleeper was suffering with back pain and the Nolah mattress has helped a lot. We had previously tried a memory foam mattress but it was too hot and felt weird (and it reeked of chemicals). Highly recommended. Emlyn A.

Nolah Mattress FAQs

How does the 120-night trial work?

From the day that your Nolah mattress is delivered, you will have 120 nights to decide if the mattress is right for you. Nolah does recommend that you sleep on the mattress for at least 30 nights before initiating a return. If you decide to return the mattress, you’ll simply contact Nolah’s customer support team and they will walk you through the return process. A Nolah representative will arrange for your mattress to be picked up from your home and donated to a local charity in need.

How long will it take for my Nolah mattress to be delivered?

You should receive your Nolah mattress within 5 to 10 days of placing your order. Unfortunately, Nolah does not ship to Canada, Alaska or Hawaii at the moment.

Can I finance my Nolah mattress purchase?

Yes. Nolah offers 0% APR financing through Klarna. To apply for the Klarna Pay Over Time 0% APR financing, all you need to do is to choose Klarna Pay Over Time, as the payment method during checkout. After selecting Klarna as the payment option, you’ll be redirected to Klarna a page to fill in your basic details, and Klarna will instantly let you know if approved for the credit.

How long can my Nolah mattress stay in the box?

Is the Nolah mattress eco-friendly?

All the foams in the Nolah mattresses are CertiPUR-US® certified, meaning they meet some of the most rigorous standards for emissions, content, performance, and durability.

Does the Nolah mattress have a break-in period?

Yes, you may need some time to adjust to your new Nolah mattress. Particularly if you are used to sleeping on a traditional innerspring mattress, your body will need time to get used to the new mattress feel. It can take up to 30 days to fully break in your new mattress.

Can I clean my Nolah mattress?

You can spot clean the cover using a damp cloth and mild detergent. Make sure that the cover is 100% dry before putting on sheets. You should not wash or dry-clean the cover, as it might shrink and distort the fit of the cover on the mattress.

How much weight can the Nolah mattress support?

A queen size Nolah mattress can support up to 700 lbs (350 lbs per person).

Does Nolah have a referral program?
