This is one of the best completely 100% natural component arrangements you can possibly get. Substantially well upholstered (4600 GSM) utilising Horsehair and Wool in a sandwich layout topped off with a blended wool and cotton primary layer.
The nearest comparable model we can find to this is the Vi-Spring Devonshire in terms of comfort. The luxury, however, includes horse hair and horsetail, which the Devonshire does not, making it a considerably higher specification mattress. The horsehair and horsetail layers provide support for the softer wool layers to prevent excess settlement.
The mattress cover is completely Chemical-Free using a Natural plant-based fire retardancy protection.
This model has a 10-year guarantee.

Our John Ryan Artisan Pocket Spring bases are 12″ in depth plus 2″ for Shepherd Castors making them 14″ 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.
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. To find out more such as the sizes and splits that Divans come in please read more here.

Buying a mattress online is fraught with things that could potentially go very wrong. John Ryan mitigate against this through their in depth knowledge of their sector, praise of their competitors, (love this, so rare) transparency, support, superb website, outstanding product and returns policy
Their service is exemplary – I spoke to them a number of times. They were unfailingly patient, polite, warm and useful – suggesting what to test, where, how to compare their mattress and they guide you to what is right for you. Mattresses are very subjective – they understand.
Suffice to say I’m thrilled with my Artisan Luxury Superking size mattress. The quality matches any I’ve tried inc Savoir. It’s sumptuous and supportive – the upholstery makes for an excellent sleep. I was worried it would be too soft – not so. It’s perfect.
Delivery was efficient too – on time, courteous and they removed my old mattress.
John Ryan clearly are the go to for mattress knowledge. Brilliant mattress and people.
I have been sleeping on the Artisan Luxury for about a month now and am very pleased with it. Good support and soft feel at the same time. It is a very comfortable mattress, would recommend.
The most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in.
We bought the Artisan Luxury with the pocket sprung base and a headboard. Medium on my side (I’m 14st), soft on the other. Our previous mattress was a Vi-Spring, and I’d often wake up with a back ache. No such problem with the John Ryan bed. I’d thoroughly recommend this model.
If I’m being picky, 1) it’s not obvious from the website that you don’t actually own the factory where these are made – this could be clearer (it doesn’t bother me), 2) for a few weeks the new mattress smelled a bit like a farm-yard. It’s faded now, but the ‘natural’ nature of the ingredients were quite apparent for a month or so!
But these are minor points. Overall we’re both very happy with our new bed.
Heaven! Wanted a soft bed after tolerating a firm mattress for 9 years and with advice from very helpful staff at John Ryan, we chose the Artisan Luxury – soft for me and medium for my husband. So pleased with the mattress, divan and headboard, all seems really high quality and so similar to the Vi Spring alternatives which we tested out. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend John Ryan and would definitely use again.
This is the best mattress I have ever slept on. Comfortable, beautifully crafted and of exceptional quality.
I couldn’t recommend John Ryan highly enough. I was impressed by their very informative website and a fair return policy. This is a company of honest, expert craft-men that love what they do.
I first bought an Origins Pocket 1500. An excellent mattress. After sleeping on it for almost a month, however, I decided I wanted a mattress with a softer feel and more natural fibres. So I called John Ryan and, following their advice, ended up paying the difference for the Artisan Luxury.
I also bought from John Ryan a base + 2 drawers + 2 continental drawers + headboard, originally for the Origins Pocket. Again, great product and service. A minor mistake was made when fixing the headboard, however, which left the continental drawers at the bottom end of the bed. John Ryan was of course ready to rectify this but they didn’t have to, in the end, as we also upgraded the base for the Artisan Luxury.
In all occasions, the helpline was very helpful and friendly, and the delivery was done professionally and in a timely manner.
If you are looking for a new mattress, look no further.
The thought of buying a bed over the internet had not occurred to me, but I found the web-site of this company so full of information that it was clear that here we had some self-confessed “bed nerds”. When I sent a few e-mail enquiries each one was replied to swiftly and helpfully. The same was true of telephone conversations. I was impressed by their patience and the detailed level of the advice that they provided. As we came to refine just which bed we would find most suitable there was no pressure to go for the most expensive of our options; indeed they suggested a cheaper model than originally discussed.
We chose the “Artisan Luxury” Kingsize, medium firmness. The suggestion was that we might like to match this with a Luxury Microfibre topper from “Soak & Sleep”.
Delivery was on time, and the men were polite and efficient. They assembled the bed and took away all packaging.
Both my wife and I have joint and neck injuries (too many years of climbing and skiing!) so bed choice is important. After a few days getting used to the new bed we found that our sleep improved and that we were waking with fewer aches and pains. Wonderful. We have now had the bed about three months and find it blissful!
Importantly, had we not liked the bed, it could be returned without charge during the first 30 days, and a full refund given. This gave us the confidence to order through the internet.
As an aside; we have slept on Vi-Spring and Savoir beds in hotels and it is our opinion that the “Artisan Luxury” bed from John Ryan (together with the topper) provide us with that level of comfort and support but at a very considerably lower price. If we need to replace any other beds we will be back to John Ryan like a shot.
One warning: it is suggested that any mattress be turned/flipped over every three months. These are not light weight mattresses and it does take two people to turn and flip; but we manage! Francis
Sleep comes easily in this luxurious bed
Artisan king size – beautifully made and excellent sleep experience. I liked the website because it gave good information without pressure: a rarity! Sorting out which pocket spring was appropriate for our weights was simple. At every stage we were kept informed and delivery was helped by cheerful driver and mate. So the whole buying experience was a pleasure. Martin Smith
Our best purchase this year
After a good deal of research in shops and on line, we bought our new artisan luxury mattress just over 6 months ago and it is wonderful – by far the most comfortable bed we’ve slept in.
We followed the advice given and went for a softer spring than we would have – excellent advice!
If you are looking for a great mattress – look no further – excellent quality and great value.
Thank you so much ? Jane
