Artisan Bespoke

From £1300
In contrast to the Artisan Luxury, this mattress has the firmest upholstery layers in the range. Still utilising a handmade pocket sprung unit, this mattress has comfort layers arranged to provide a firm, comfortable support. If you like a firmer sleeping surface then this is the mattress for you.
GSM: 5100
Pocket Springs: 1600
Natural Fibre: 100%
Guarantee: 10 Year

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.

The ultimate in firmness and 100% Natural Fibre fillings, this mattress provides soothing medium/firm support, through robust fillings & tailored Calico Pocket Springs.

The Artisan Bespoke has an incredible 5100GSM of 100% Natural fillings.

The Horsetail, Horsehair and Cashmere insulator gives the mattress a firmer feel in the top upholstery Comfort Layers.

Two layers of Wool and Blended British Wool and Cotton provide a slight sink giving this a firm but forgiving feel.

The Bespoke has three rows of Genuine Hand Side Stitching & Hand Nested Springs. 8 padded turning handles on a Kingsize model.

1600 Calico encased Pocket Springs [49mm] [1.28mm] Sewn-in individual calico pockets and hand-formed into a honeycomb-nested unit. 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.

The Woven mattress cover is completely Chemical-Free using a Natural plant-based fire retardancy protection.

It’s no use being coy about this. Our Artisan Bespoke is based quite clearly on the build quality of many of Vi-Spring and Savoir models. We state quite openly that our Artisan Bespoke is “The best mattress your money can buy” with the following reasoning.

To present our case, our Artisan Bespoke is described and detailed to the extreme in order to give you all the initial information you need to make an educated and informed comparison.

The closest comparable model we can find to our Artisan Bespoke is the Vi-Spring Herald Superb. It carries a retail price of £2670 for a King size. We always try as best we can to base our comparable models to about half the lowest price we can find.

The mattress cover is completely Chemical-Free using a Natural plant-based fire retardancy protection.

This model has a 10-year guarantee.

  1. Pete

    Recently purchased the Artisan Bespoke and am delighted with the comfort and build quality. This replaced a much loved Hypnos bed but from the first nights use, we found the new bed to be perfect in terms of support. We had been recommended the medium spring tension based on our individual weights and so far we have both slept really well. Our only complaint is that we struggle to prise ourselves from the bed in order to get to work!
    The delivery guys were very helpful and unpacked and assembled the bed to enable us to check everything over, and the whole ordering process has been smooth, professional, and trouble free. I would not hesitate to recommend FB Direct and am so pleased that I stumbled upon their website.
    Many thanks Pete

    Have now had the bed for a month, turning the mattress as recommended and am extremely happy with it. It is the best mattress I have ever slept on (including those at some top hotels) and although other manufacturers sell beds much more expensive I cannot possibly see how there could be anything better than the Bespoke. – Malcolm

    I came across this site last year after researching for a reaaly good quality mattress as I’d had back problems. I decided on the Artisan bespoke as I wanted the best and with the ViSpring being completely out of my range I ordered from here. Given the number of testimonials and the personal service offered I felt the site could be trusted to deliver.
    Well what a find this site was! It has to be the most comfortable and luxurious mattress I have ever slept on and has remained so for the past year.
    You can tell how much material is in the mattress as it takes two people
    to turn it!
    I would recommend anyone thinking of buying a new mattress to buy from here. Service was without fault.
    Only wish I had a bigger room so I could have had the super king size to really feel like a king! – Stuart Harrison

    In a nutshell I am going to buy from John Ryan by Design again and already recommended it to my fellow colleagues and friends. This explains it all.
    I have purchased Artisan Bespoke Super King Medium/Soft split couple months ago. Frankly I have spent a lot of time trying different mattresses at the shops and got more and more confused more I’ve tried so I simply followed the advise by the office and ordered one thinking worse case scenario I will send it back if it won’t suit me. Being consultant and treating spinal pain for number of years I have suspected how important is the mattress and ability to give a chance for your body to restore itself during the sleep but I did not expect what have’happened. After first night my pain eased and I simply feel more rested in the morning, same with my wife. I believe pocket spring mattress with natural filling is the best and my experience confirms it. Bespoke is quite firm , firmer than Vispring so make sure this is what you want. It suits me.
    I would like to thank everybody in the office for bespoke boutique service and especially gentlemen from delivery company who have sorted delivery time out of hours during our first conversation. This is so rare in our time to receive such service when people genuinely care and so important especially for us working impossible schedules. Delivery itself was great I just feel sorry for the team who needs to carry 80kg mattresses upstairs through tight spaces.
    Many many thanks ,will buy again and would recommend.

    Great website, good service and delivery, high quality and comfortable mattress
    Had the mattress around a month now, very comfortable. Ordering and delivery all pretty seamless, with some extra care points calling to run through the order, and lots of communication with delivery company on delivery day. Website very good for research, really helped me make my decision and cut through a lot of the marketing noise that surrounds the marketplace around mattresses. Mattress seems of high quality, if it lasts a decent amount of time I will be a repeat customer for sure.

Have you ever thought about buying a mattress but found yourself scratching your head at the kind of information that’s available? There’s a reason for that. The mattress industry is incredibly tight-lipped about the contents of a product because they are easy to replicate. Mattress manufacturers give as much information as they want a customer to know. That’s not how we operate.
