I am looking for a good quality mattress for my wife (5’8″ , 11.5 stone) and myself (6′ 00″, 19.5 stone) my wife prefers a medium bed while I prefer a firm bed.

Hi Craig,

Thanks for your question.

If you are looking for quality, and require different tensions then you would be looking at our Artisan Range, these are mattresses with natural fibers.

In this range we can do a split tension in a one piece kingsize mattress and above, in your wife’s case it would need to be medium springs and firm springs for you to make sure you both get the correct support.

BodyweightSpring tension
Upto 16 Stone / 50-101kgMedium (1.4mm)
16 Stone / 101kg UpwardsFirm (1.6mm)
Available in Bespoke Products (Please Call)Soft (1.2mm)

With you being different body weights, and wanting a different type of feel there will need to be a compromise.

I would have a look at our Artisan Naturals mattress, this offers a nice medium feel ie not to soft and not to firm.

This is also our most popular mattress!

Kind Regards Gary
