Stearns & Foster Estate Collection

Stearns & Foster’s Estate Collection offers two mattresses, the Estate Rockwell and the Estate Hurston. The Estate set is the most affordable of Stearn & Foster’s collections. While it offers a lower price point, Estate mattresses still include many of the same premium features as the more expensive collections.

Estate mattresses are designed using a complex, multi-layered system of premium gel foam, a breathable fabric cover with TENCEL, and a dual-stage IntelliCoil® system. The side of the mattress is crafted from thicker materials that ensure quality edge support.

Estate Rockwell

The Estate Rockwell is the higher-end option of the two Estate models. If you ever wake up with back pain, this is the mattress for you. It’s designed for indulgent comfort, with premium materials like the Indulge Memory Foam that target your pressure points. The Estate Rockwell is great for all sleeping positions and body sizes.

Stearns & Foster Lux Estate Hybrid Collection

Along with the Lux Estate, the Lux Estate Hybrid is Stearns & Fosters’ other mid-range mattress. The Lux Estate Hybrid is best for average-size sleepers of all positions.

Lux Estate Hybrid Pollock

Unlike the other models, the Lux Hybrid offers three comfort models instead of five, and there is no pillow top option. The mattress comes with a layer of micro coils: short, soft metal coils that allow the mattress to contour to your body. The Cushion Firm is a good stomach sleeper mattress and back sleeper mattress who require extra support. The Plush and Ultra Plush are the best mattress picks for side sleepers.

What are Stearns & Foster mattresses built with?


Although some materials vary by model, all current Stearns & Foster models are hybrid mattresses made of these common components: multi-layered foam, the IntelliCoil® HD pocketed coil system, upholstery grade fabrics, copper air vents, and stylish embroidery. 

All mattresses except the Estate Hurston are made with a supportive layer of Stearns & Fosters’ Indulge Memory Foam. The Stearns & Foster Hybrid Pollock is the only one with a special “Stearns & Foster” embellished label on its side. The Reserve Hepburn is the only model designed with an upholstery-grade velvet exterior.


What is the IntelliCoil® HD system?


Intellicoil® HD is Stearns & Foster’s new patented design of densely-packed, pocketed coils. It utilizes a traditional innerspring design but with more tightly-packed coils for extra support. Intellicoil® micro coils form a layer of the mattress that provides sleepers with both comfort and durability.
