Compare comfort

The firmness of the mattress you desire is determined by a few factors. Your weight and height, and the mattress of your choice. The upholstery layers are the very top comfort layers and give different degrees of firmness alongside the spring unit which should be chosen based on your weight.

We’re one of the few Luxury Mattress manufacturers to use Vanadium coated Calico encased pocket springs along with Vispring and Savoir Beds.

John Ryan-Artisan Bespoke 003 [King] 2508 (2 tiers) Calico encased Pocket Springs [ 56mm ] [1.40mm ] Sewn in individual calico pockets and hand-formed into a honeycomb-nested unit.

We are also able to offer Soft, Medium or Firm spring tensions dependant on your weight requirements.

We also zone the perimeter sides (2 rows) of the mattress with a slightly firmer spring to aid the edge support. This stabilises the mattress when sitting on the edge.

Upholstery Layers & Comparison

The combined upholstery weight by GSM [Grams per Square Metre] in a mattress is a good indicator of who is giving you more filling for your money.  The Artisan 003 has three rows of Genuine hand side stitching. 8 padded turning handles on the KS.

The mattress has been traditionally hand tufted with woollen tufts. This mattress is covered in our white woven 100% Viscose with subtle John Ryan design.

Our John Ryan Pocket Sprung Edge Artisan bases are 13″ in depth plus 2″ for Shepherd Castors making them 15″ in total. This is a ‘true edge’ base.

If drawers are added then the base height will be 13″ plus 2″ for Shepherd castors making 15″ in total.

Spring edging can be looked upon as a mini mattress between the main mattress and the base. It offers a progressive support that dampens the strain of weight from the user. This significantly improves the overall comfort level of a mattress. This difference in comfort is often described as ‘Softer’ which is quite an incorrect term to use.

The drawers on the Artisan bases are 32″ wide, 20″ deep and 9″ high. To find out more such as the sizes and splits that Divans come in please read more here.

You can have 2 or 4 drawer options. If using bedside tables you may want to have 2 full size and 2 continental drawers so the drawers next to the bedside tables can be opened fully.

Continental drawers will have the same depth and height as the normal, but width will be 17.5 inches.

We’ve taken our mattress expertise to the limit with the Artisan Bespoke 003. The massive 5100GSM is the highest amount of fillings you can fit into a one-piece mattress with a double Calico Pocket spring unit.

Not content with this; we have also used the finest natural fibres such as luxury Alpaca, Bamboo, Coir, Wool, Cotton & Horsetail. Making this one of the most breathable pocket sprung mattresses available.

Alpaca as a premium fibre is incredibly high wicking with its delicate stands providing the highest levels of comfort. Married with Bamboo, British Fleece Wool & Cotton the upholstery layers in this mattress are the highest quality currently available.
