Artisan Naturals

From £885
Our best-selling Artisan mattress is built around a handmade spring unit. It is filled with the finest natural fibres to provide a soothing and satisfying medium comfort level. If you like a mattress that is supportive – not too soft – not too firm, then this is the one for you.
GSM: 3950
Pocket Springs: 1600
Natural Fibre: 85%
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.

Our most popular, unbeatable model with 85% natural fibres. Containing a huge GSM of fillings, including wool and mohair, on a Calico Pocket spring unit.

This medium feel hand crafted mattress is where we stake our reputation as ‘The Mattress Specialists’.

Upholstery Layer 1: Blended British Fleece Wool & Cotton gives a soft yet resilient top comfort layer. With high loft it provides a mix of comfort and light support.

Upholstery Layer 2: A hair proof cambric cover helps stop fibres from migrating between layers & will be found in all high-end mattresses.

Upholstery Layer 3: 1250GSM Rebound Polycotton helps with both support and rebound with this mattress.

Upholstery Layer 4: We used 1500GSM Mohair as the insulating layer to add a robust property to the forthcoming layer.

This has been specifically built to enable us to say “you just cannot get a better-built mattress for this price”. Support from the 1600 Calico Encased Pocket Springs (which are Vanadium coated) can be tweaked softer to firmer to suit your own individual bodyweight or indeed have half firm and half medium as required and at no additional charge with our split tension offering.

The internal upholstery is amongst the best you can get for this price range and all this combined ensure that this mattress will be exceptionally hard to beat for build, comfort and more importantly, price.

    Artisan Naturals Mattress – Medium

    Purchased last December it’s comfortable, very well made and as described on the John Ryan site, what more do you need to know! – Dave

    When we first started looking for a replacement bed, we visited the usual retail park suppliers, and then discovered the John Ryan Website. I had to convince myself that the gamble to buy a product without testing or viewing would be worthwhile. I should have just trusted the reviews and gone for it. We suffered lower back pain for a long time on an old “Posturepedic” mattress and since we’ve have this new one, we’ve been so much better. I feel like I’ve got the rolls Royce of beds now. very happy.
    When I disposed of our old mattress, I took a look inside and was shocked to see cheap springs and around an inch of compressed foam, and some sort of grey material. Goes to show.
    All I can say, hand on heart is that I’m both relieved and very very happy with the service and product from John Ryan. The service was excellent, and the bed, has been a revelation. Love the bed. Great company. Ralph

    I ordered a mattress from this company without taking any advice. When it arrived I found it to be totally unsuitable for me. Too firm. I rang them and explained my problem. They were very understanding and after discussing my requirements I ordered a replacement which was the Artisan natural.
    Upon its arrival I knew after one night that the mattress was absolutely perfect for me. This is the finest mattress I have ever slept on.
    The moral of this story is ring before ordering and take their advice.
    They really are experts in their field. !!!!!!!!

    Very well made, comfortable, good delivery, overall great value.
    The bed and base itself (both Artisan range) is very well made and even though they say it could take a few weeks to get used to it we found it very comfortable from the start. We went for the medium tension, my wife is 9st and I am 12st and it’s not too firm for her at all. It did have a bit of a “new” smell but it’s not overpowering as we aired it for the recommended 8hrs and for the first 2x weeks we’ve taken off all the pillows and folded the duvet towards the end of the bed so it can air as much as possible. Of course, it’s still early days as we’ve only had it for 2x weeks but I’m sure it will last for years to come.

    The initial phone call to confirm the order and the way the support staff answered my email queries were spot on. The 2x man delivery crew were very efficient and had the bed assembled in no time and took all the packaging with them. The only thing they could improve on is to possibly send a text message or a phone call with an approximate delivery time. I knew it would be delivered on a Saturday and we were excited for our new bed but I was rather surprised when the doorbell rang at 7:55am. Fortunately for us we have a spare room so we cleared the main bedroom ready for the delivery the night before. If you thought you’d have your last sleep on your old bed and clear up in the morning you could be caught by surprise:) Still, it wasn’t a big deal for us and I’d bet most customers wouldn’t get their delivery that early in the morning.

    The only reason I didn’t give John Ryan by Design 5 stars is because the website described the drawers of the Artisan base being 9″ in height when in fact it is 7″ and the height is the measurement of the front panel not the actual inside of the drawer. With the front panel obviously being larger to cover the drawer the actual inside measurement of mine is about 4.72″ (12cm) so just be aware of the space. The website has since been updated.

    Would I still recommend John Ryan by Design, absolutely. I spent almost 6 weeks researching bed in a box mattresses and other traditional spring mattresses and no manufacturer gives you the precise detail and GSM of what’s actually inside your mattress, not even some of the bespoke companies that charge 4x times as much.

    I write this review after a year of…
    I write this review after a year of sleeping on my divine bed. I have no regrets and can wholeheartedly say that this is one of the best purchases and decisions I have ever made. I did a lot of research before I made this purchase. I suffer from chronic back pain and I really wanted a bed high off the floor so it wasn’t so much strain on my back getting in and out of bed. I read their bed buying guide from front to back and from back to front and called them up about three times before I went for a medium artisan natural ottoman bed. This was just an extra bonus having the storage space underneath.
    My days of waking up in a bad mood are over.
    My back pain has got significantly less painful and I have a better quality of sleep since I purchased this bed.

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.
