We’re Here to Help!
Brentwood began hand crafting luxury mattresses in 1987. Originally known as a boutique manufacturer, their popularity exploded as soon as they moved to the online distribution model. In fact, Avocado commissioned Brentwood to manufacture its award winning 100% organic Avocado Green mattress. The mattress was so popular that in 2018, Avocado bought the company! This merger benefited Brentwood greatly as Avocado owns and controls its entire supply chain. That’s right, the sheep farms that produce the wool, the cotton fields that produce the cotton, the rubber trees in India that produce the latex. They upgraded the California manufacturing facility to earn one of only 5 GOTS and GOLS organic certified production facilities in the US.
To this day, Brentwood continues to have a relentless focus on high quality craftsmanship.
Crystal Cove Construction & Materials
Brentwood starts with a soft stretch knit cover with a calming waves pattern. Inspired by the surf and lively tide pools found at California’s Crystal Cove State Park, the embroidery adds structure and artful detail to the mattress.
Crystal Cove Comfort Layers (Flippable)
Side 1 – Charcoal Infused Memory Foam: On the plush/medium side, topped with a plush layer of CertiPUR-US® certified Flow Foam that will conform to your body and provide pressure relief and restorative sleep. Just below the Flow Foam is a layer of Brentwood’s innovative, naturally cooling, and plush charcoal-infused Memory Foam.
Activated charcoal is one of the most effective cooling and purifying minerals. Its many healing properties include trapping toxins and chemicals in the body, allowing them to be flushed out and preventing reabsorption. Brentwood’s foam has been specifically designed to energize in response to body heat, which is the key to providing highly adaptive comfort and excellent pressure relief.
Side 2 – Organic Dunlop Latex: The medium/firm side is made with GOLS certified organic natural latex (861640), and free of synthetic ingredients. Brentwood makes their natural latex with the Dunlop process. Their GOLS certified organic Dunlop latex (CU861640) is breathable, durable, naturally responsive, non-toxic, antimicrobial, and eco-INSTITUT® certified. This premium, natural material is eco-friendly and healthy. Our sustainably farmed latex provides support where you need it, for a gentle-firm night of zoned pressure-point relief.
Support Layer – 7 Zoned Support
For unparalleled support, Brentwood chose an 8-inch ActivEdge™ Quantum® Edge coil unit from Leggett & Platt®. The Crystal Cove features up to 975 individually pocketed coils, plus a reinforced perimeter. It is one of the most advanced support systems to pair with their comfort system. The springs have 7 zoned support, placing softer (yet incredibly supportive) springs in the shoulder and hip region and more support where it counts – in the middle third of our body. Finally, they reinforced the edge coils so that you can sleep all the way to the edge of the mattress without any feeling of falling out. The result: a support system that properly aligns the spine while relieving pressure points for a comfortable night’s rest.
To ensure that everything fits together snug and tight, Brentwood chose top tufting. Top tufting is the process of sewing the embroidered cover to the top comfort layers, creating a flat sleeping surface. The result, no clumping or shifting of materials creating a solid feeling mattress for a deep sleep all night long.
Does it Sleep Cool?
Yes! Crystal Cove has several features to give you a cool, dry and comfortable night sleep (even for furnace sleepers). Feeling cool at night is all about feeling dry. Crystal Cove starts with the ultra wicking embroidered cover. On the plush side, Brentwood infused active charcoal into the memory foam to pull heat from the body and keep the mattress fresh. On the medium side, latex is an incredible moisture absorbent. Additionally, perforations and channels within the latex promotes airflow to help heat escape. And finally, the hybrid has springs which further promote air flow. The result, a cool dry sleep all night long regardless of which side you choose.
How About Edge Support?
Crystal Cove reinforces the outer edge of the spring support system with thicker coils on every mattress. This results in a stronger edge support allowing you to sleep all the way to the edge with no worry of sliding off.
One Added Benefit: the latex side layer pushes back against you to fill in all the nooks and crannies. This responsive nature adds to edge support and actually “helps” you get out of bed in the morning!
Crystal Cove Comfort & Feel
While there are a few flippable mattresses on the market, the Crystal Cove differentiates itself by how different each side feels. Rarely has a mattress combined memory foam on one side and latex on the other. If one side does not fit you, the other side should do the trick.
Charcoal Infused Memory Foam Side (Medium/Soft)
The plush side – with charcoal infused memory foam – feels like a plush luxury memory foam mattress. Memory foam by its very nature absorbs energy, which gives it that sinky feeling. It is also body heat activated so the sink occurs over a few minutes until you body is snug and in its place.
Side sleepers will receive the most benefit from the Crystal Cove as the plush memory foam contours and relieves pressure of your shoulders and hips. That said, the mattress provides plenty of support from the 7 zone coil system. Crystal Cove can support sleepers up to 250 lbs. Above that weight, you’ll want to have a little more support in the mattress and can look towards Brentwood’s Oceano, or even the Avocado Green mattress.
Edge support is very good. Crystal Cove comes is fit with heavy duty edge coils allowing you to sleep all the way to the edge. One thing – edge support is defined by if your body can lay on the edge and not fall off. It is not measured by sitting on the edge. From a sitting-on-the-edge perspective, the Cove has some give. While the patterned cover provides structure, there are several inches of plush memory foam, resulting in some edge sink. However, that should not affect your sleeping.
Finally, even though the Crystal Cove has plush memory foam, it is designed to pull away heat and escape it through the coil layer. As a result, the Crystal Cove will sleep temperature neutral and comfortable all night long.
- On Sandman’s Firmness Scale, we rate the Crystal Cove soft side a 4.5 out of 10.
- Side and lighter back sleepers will get the most benefit out of the Crystal Cove.
- The plush temperature activated comfort layer provides nice sink, but even so, the superior airflow design and advanced cooling technology will keep you cool and dry all night long.
- Edge support is very good – minimal sagging here!
Organic Latex Side (Medium/Firm)
Where the memory foam side brings you in, latex responds or bounces back quickly – providing a very different feel for the Latex side. Latex is a foam made from the sap of a rubber tree and is designed to return to form quickly. As you move around, the latex fills in all the nooks and crannies. You will not have any sinky, stuck-in-one-place feeling. This being said, the Crystal Cove latex is plush enough to give you nice contouring, it is just more responsive.
Side, combination and back sleepers will receive the most benefit from the Crystal Cove. There is enough support and resistance in the latex to make even the most mobile sleepers comfortable. As with the memory foam side, the mattress provides plenty of support from the 7 zone coil system. Crystal Cove can support sleepers up to 250 lbs. Above that weight, you’ll want to have a little more support in the mattress and can look towards the Avocado Green pillowtop mattress.
Edge support is very good. Crystal Cove comes is fit with heavy duty edge coils allowing you to sleep all the way to the edge. One thing – edge support is defined by if your body can lay on the edge and not fall off. From a sitting-on-the-edge perspective, the Cove has some give. While the patterned cover provides structure, there are several inches of latex, resulting in some edge sink. However, that should not affect your sleeping.
Finally, the organic latex is perforated to allow greater airflow throughout the mattress. It is designed to pull away heat and escape it through the coil layer. As a result, the Crystal Cove will sleep temperature neutral and comfortable all night long.
- On Sandman’s Firmness Scale, we rate the Crystal Cove a 6.5 out of 10.
- Side and lighter combination sleepers will get the most benefit out of the Crystal Cove.
- The latex comfort layer provides a little sink, but even so, the superior airflow design and advanced cooling technology will keep you cool and dry all night long.
- Edge support is very good – minimal side sagging here!
Motion Isolation - Is Crystal Cove good for couples?
Very Good The combination of latex on one side and Biofoam memory foam on the other dampens a significant amount of motion transfer, but still keeps a bit of bounce. From a hybrid perspective, motion isolation is very good in the Crystal Cove. Simply put, you will barely feel your partner move at night, if any at all. Whether they are a toss and turner, an early riser or using the facilities, it’s not the bed that will wake you.
Due to the high quality materials, the Crystal Cove mattress has no off gassing.
How does the Crystal Cove mattress arrive?
The Crystal Cove comes in a box for easy shipping and moving to the bedroom. It’s crazy to think that a king size mattress with powerful springs can be compressed, but it can. And, with no sacrifice to quality and durability. Some people ask if compressing the springs will hurt their integrity. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Springs are actually shipped compressed all over the world (to save space). The springs integrity is damaged if they are pulled excessively or bent out of position. But, the way Brentwood compresses its mattresses, they keep their shape and strength. The box arrives via Fedex or White Glove Delivery if you choose. Simply unbox the mattress. Rest it on the bed frame and remove the plastic wrapping and the bed will decompress before your eyes. You can begin sleeping on the bed and enjoying a restful night sleep that same day. Moving most sizes will be a 2 man job, especially if going up stairs. Check out the Dimensions below for more details.
What’s Brentwood's Return Policy & Warranty?
Brentwood stands behind their bed so much that they give you a FULL YEAR, yes 365 Days! trial. Most companies offer 100 nights. If for any reason this is not the mattress of your dreams, you can return it for a 100% refund. Here’s how it works:
- The trial begins when you RECEIVE the mattress (the Fedex delivery day).
- You can sleep on it for 365 nights. As there can be a slight break-in period, Brentwood asks that you not initiate a return during the first 30 days.
- If it’s not the mattress of your dreams, reach out to Brentwood via their customer service portal on their website, provide your name and order number and that’s it! There are no questions asked!
- Returns: Brentwood coordinates a donation or recycling pickup on a day of your choosing. They handle everything and there’s nothing you have to do besides letting them know the best pickup date.
- Full 100% refunds (no fees!!) are issued within days of the return.
Brentwood doesn’t stop there!
Brentwood covers the mattress with a 25 year warranty. This does not include normal wear and tear, but any manufacturer defects are covered. If there are impressions greater than 1.5 in, Brentwood will replace your mattress for the entire time you own it.
