Mattress – do you have one very similar to John Lewis one we tried?

Dear Sirs, we would like to order a super king base and headboard from you. However, we have tried out a John Lewis mattress which we were going to buy to go on your base. It occurred to me that you probably have an identical zip link super king size mattress. Which of your own would directly compare with: John Lewis Natural Collection Silk 14000 Pocket Spring Zip Link Mattress, Medium, Super King Size. We would ideally like to buy it all from you! Thank you in advance for your help and advice in this matter.

Hi Jacki,

Thank you for your questions.

With 14000 pocket springs, some people look at this and think that it has to be a good mattress. A lot of the time this is a marketing ploy and I would recommend having a proper think about it as with so many springs inside I would imagine that something has to be compromised inside the mattress as you have the same amount of space available and a lot of that space is being dedicated to the springs.

Unfortunately, we cannot directly compare with John Lewis’ models. We do have two articles that compare to the John Lewis mattress range and their Vispring models too. However, having had a quick look online at some of the materials used I would say that a similar model would be the Artisan Naturals model.

This has Mohair used in it’s construction and is the true medium feeling mattress in it’s comfort layers (These are the layers that you sleep on top of on top of the springs).

We would need to know your body weights in order to ensure that you are matched with the correct spring as this is solely determined by your body weight in order to give you the correct support.

Zip and Link’s are ideal where there may be an access to property issue, where there are 2 users with very different body weights and one spring won’t support both sleepers or where one user has a tendency to disturb the other.

I hope that this has answered your questions fully but if you do have any further queries then please don’t hesitate to contact our office on 0161 437 4419.

Kind Regards, Lee.
