The Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe Mattress is an 11-inch hybrid mattress. This is fairly short for a hybrid mattress, and the mattress has a thin comfort section. However, customers can choose to add an optional pillow top which raises the height of the comfort section by 3 inches.
The mattress itself has a firm feel equivalent to a 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale. Cotton and wool padding allows sleepers to sink in somewhat, but the latex underneath is relatively firm and mostly keeps sleepers lying on, and not in, the mattress.
The optional latex pillow top is designed for those who want a softer medium firm (6) feel. The topper is 3 inches tall and includes 1 inch of wool and cotton batting over 2 inches of Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS)-certified latex, with a Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)-certified cotton cover. It attaches to the mattress with straps and buttons made of coconut husks.
The mattress has a GOTS-certified cotton cover with visible wool rosettes. To avoid the use of chemical adhesives, Brentwood Home has hand-tufted all the layers of the mattress together. The cover panels and borders are quilted with GOTS-certified cotton fibers. In addition to providing a place for the topper to attach, hand-stitched handles around the outside also make the mattress easier to move.
Beneath the quilted cover are two layers of GOTS-certified organic wool. Wool is an excellent moisture-wicker and this layer helps keep the surface of the bed cool. There is a further inch of alpaca wool underneath that functions as a natural fire barrier and adds a silky touch.
Brentwood Home has designed a 1.5-inch layer of computer-cut articulated Dunlop latex with three zones, giving differing feels for the shoulders, legs, and lower back. In addition to changing the firmness in different areas, the articulated design and pincore holes also allow for better airflow. The latex is GOLS-certified organic latex, with a medium feel that forms a loose pressure-relieving cradle around the sleeper.
The support core consists of 8 inches of individually wrapped coils. These are made of tempered steel, with a coil count of 1,130 in a queen mattress. The coils are divided into 5 zones, with firmer coils in the head and feet and softer coils in the hips that provide gentle support. The edges are also reinforced with coils.
The pocketed coil layer sits atop a 0.5-inch layer made of coconut husk fiber, which provides a sturdy and breathable base for the bed without the need for polyfoam.
Brentwood Home uses ethically sourced, organic materials and environmentally friendly manufacturing processes that incorporate wind power, rainwater collection pools, and tree biomass. The mattress and topper are GREENGUARD Gold certified, meaning they are low in chemical emissions. For every mattress sold, the company plants three trees through a donation to the National Forest Foundation.
The 11-inch Brentwood Home Cedar mattress has multiple layers, consisting of cotton, wool, latex, pocketed coils, and coconut husk fiber. The optional 3-inch topper has 3 layers and is made up of wool, cotton, and latex.
2″ Dunlop latex (organic, GOLS-certified)
Organic cotton fiber
1″ Alpaca wool
1.5″ Dunlop latex (organic, GOLS-certified)
8″ pocketed coils (zoned)
.5″ coconut husk fiber
The Brentwood Home Cedar mattress is priced very competitively considering its durable materials and sustainable credentials. Customers who bundle the optional pillow top when they order their mattress pay an additional charge. This raises the price of the overall setup, but it’s still a reasonable price-point.
In addition to the pillow top, Brentwood Home also sells a basic foundation or an adjustable base which customers can choose to purchase along with the mattress if they wish. Brentwood Home offers occasional discounts that can knock around a hundred dollars off the regular price.
The mattress is only available in queen, king, and California king sizes.
|Queen||60" x 80"||11" or 14"||120 lbs.||$1,499|
|King||76" x 80"||11" or 14"||140 lbs.||$1,799|
|California King||72" x 84"||11" or 14"||149 lbs.||$1,799|
The Brentwood Home Cedar provides light contouring that helps reduce pressure points in most side sleepers, especially those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds. Layers of cotton and wool padding add cushioning, and the zoned latex helps reduce pressure build-up in the hips and shoulders. The pocketed coils are strong and supportive, even for heavier individuals.
Side sleepers under 130 pounds may feel more comfortable with the extra pillow top. These sleepers don’t sink very far into the mattress and will get better pressure relief from the pillow top’s softer feel. Those over 230 pounds may also appreciate the added cushioning of the pillow-top.
The firm surface of the Brentwood Home Cedar provides a balance of support and pressure relief that is particularly well-suited to back sleepers under 230 pounds. In these sleepers, the mattress boosts lumbar support to keep the spine on an even plane.
The mattress is also suitable for individuals who weigh more than 230 pounds, with zoned support in the latex and the pocketed coils that promotes healthy spinal alignment. However, those who carry extra weight around the midsection may find the mattress is a bit too thin to prevent sagging in this area. This can contribute to lower back pain in some sleepers. The pillow-top model provides a thicker comfort system for heavier back sleepers to sink into.
Stomach sleepers need a firm surface to prevent the hips from sinking in, and the Brentwood Home Cedar has varying levels of suitability depending on body weight.
The mattress doesn’t allow much give for stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds, so this group should experience excellent spinal alignment. Stomach sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds may sink in a little further, but should still get a decent amount of support from the mattress. As is the case with back sleepers, the base mattress is a bit too thin for stomach sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds, and the pillow-top model may be a better match.

Although other Brentwood Home mattresses are available on Amazon, the Cedar mattress is only sold directly on the Brentwood Home website. The mattress ships to the contiguous U.S. Customers who live in rural areas or who have additional shipping restrictions should contact the company directly.
Mattresses are shipped shrink-wrapped and compressed via FedEx Doorstep Delivery from the Brentwood Home factory in L.A.
Each mattress is made to order and mattresses are usually sent out within 3 to 5 business days of placing your order, and deliveries are usually made within 7 to 10 business days of the initial order placement. Customers who purchased a topper will receive it in a separate box and may receive it on a different day. Shipping is free in the contiguous U.S.
To set up the mattress, carefully remove the plastic, unroll the mattress, and let it expand on the foundation or bed frame. It should reach its full size within 24 to 48 hours.
Third-party provider AGS provides optional White Glove delivery for an extra $249. Customers can also add old mattress removal, which brings the total to $275. These services are non-refundable in the event you should decide to return the mattress.
Mattresses sent with White Glove delivery usually arrive within 2 to 3 weeks of order placement, although these times may be shorter for customers who live close to L.A. and San Diego. AGS will get in touch via email to establish a delivery date and time.
Brentwood Home does not offer expedited shipping.
The Brentwood Home Cedar mattress is covered by a 1-year sleep trial. Starting from the date of delivery, customers have 365 nights to initiate a return, but they must try the mattress for at least 30 nights first.
Customers who wish to return the mattress can contact Brentwood Home, who will send a team to pick up the mattress free of charge and arrange for donation or recycling. Once the company receives the mattress back in good condition, Brentwood Home will issue a full refund of the original purchase price minus shipping fees or financing fees. Alternatively, customers can donate the mattress to a charity and send proof to get the refund.
Only two items from an order are eligible for a sleep trial, and after this, returns/exchanges are limited to one per customer. Mattresses that are damaged with burns, cuts, tears, liquid damage, or mold that is due to improper care are excluded from the trial. Mattresses that have been used on the floor instead of with an appropriate bed frame or foundation are also excluded from the sleep trial. The sleep trial is only valid for customers who purchased the mattress directly from Brentwood Home.
Brentwood Home offers a 25-year limited warranty against defective workmanship or materials for the original purchaser of a new Cedar mattress.
The warranty covers visible indentations of at least 2 inches and cosmetic damage that affects the mattress performance. It does not cover normal increases in softness, comfort preference, or mattresses that are stained, abused, burnt, torn, moldy, smelly, or unsanitary. Mattresses must always be used with an approved foundation, box spring, or base as defined by Brentwood Home.
The warranty is prorated, meaning that over time, customers will be responsible for a greater portion of the replacement cost. In all cases, customers are responsible for transportation and shipping costs.
During the first 10 years, Brentwood Home will replace a defective mattress for free. Starting in year 11, the purchaser will be responsible for paying 50 percent of the original purchase price. This portion increases by 5 percent every year until year 21. From this point onwards, the purchaser’s portion will be 95 percent of the original purchase price. Replacement mattresses will be the same size and model where possible.
