A Review of Chattam and Wells Mattresses
A Chattam and Wells mattress ranks high on the market, yet with other great brands to choose from, like Kingsdown, Stearns & Foster, and Restonic, you might be wondering if this particular mattress is worth its pricey price tag. Here’s a review of what to expect and why I think it’s one of the best mattresses on the market right now.
The company has been manufacturing high-quality mattresses for many years. Their designs, the materials used and the craftsmanship in their manufacture have made their products offer luxurious comfort with an air of romance.
You’ll notice the attention to detail when you first see a Chattam & Wells mattress. The finish of each mattress is quality from start to finish. Each comes with metal corner protectors and brass vents. Each collection is distinguished by its own stylized royal crown pattern and the Belgian damask used is one of the best in the world. And you also want to find loose threads or sloppy stitching.
However, it is what you do not see that is even more important. The heart of any spring mattress is its spirals. Both the Crown and Triple Crown collections have 12 3/4 gauge double offset, double hardened steel springs. The better the internal spring mattress, the more turns there will be in the coils. Most quality manufacturers use 4- to 5-turn spools; Chattam and Wells mattresses come with 6 rotating coils. Additionally, the Royal European Collection comes with double-lined internal springs.
The comfort layers are made up of cashmere and several layers of cotton with button tufts; This means that layers of thick cotton are placed over the springs and held in place by tying and holding them in place with buttons on each side.
Lastly, some mattresses feature the company’s proprietary “Portrait Frame”, the ultimate in mattress edge support, comprised of specially designed blocks of high-density foam that are inserted into the outer coils. This system gives you more sleeping area and a firm edge to sit on.
There are very few faults in these mattresses. If you are looking for a pure latex, memory foam or air mattress, you will have to look elsewhere. The price may also seem a bit steep to many, but I’d say mattresses are worth every penny; They are built with the best materials and have been built to last.
If you want the best mattress, and you want internal springs, you should definitely consider a Chattam and Wells mattress. They deservedly belong to the same class as other manufacturers such as Restonic and Kingsdown mattresses.
