A mattress adapted to your morphology for quality sleep
Quality of sleep is inseparable from quality of life. And while it is estimated that 80% of the comfort of a bed rests on the mattress, it should not be forgotten that not all mattresses are the same and do not offer the same qualities and specificity of sleeping.
Technologies and materials are constantly evolving, and mattress heights are increasing to meet expectations in terms of comfort, support and ergonomics. Choosing a mattress adapted to your needs and morphology means opting for quality sleep that is regenerative and long-lasting.
A mattress consists of two parts:
the reception, on the surface, which, as its name suggests, receives the body and absorbs its contours; the soul or heart, the central element that provides support and firmness.
The filling or padding is composed of natural materials such as cotton, wool, silk, cashmere, horse or camel hair or wood fibres such as lyocell or fibrous algae.
The mattress is wrapped in a ticking, a fabric made of linen, cotton or natural fibers with a high level of absorption that guarantees climatic comfort in both summer and winter and optimum bedding protection.
These are all elements to be known and taken into consideration when choosing a mattress, find more information here.
A mattress is also a very specific technology. Latex mattresses, spring mattresses, memory foam mattresses… In the rest of this guide, you will discover the specificities of each type of mattress. Our bedding experts are at your disposal to show you and explain the different types of mattresses in our Parisian stores.
Latex mattresses, an extreme natural comfort
What is latex?
Latex is an elastic material that comes in two forms: natural, made from the resin of the rubber tree, Hevea brasiliensis, or synthetic, obtained by polymerization. There are therefore two types of latex mattresses:
- the latex mattress of natural origin, which consists of 90% to 100% natural latex.
- the synthetic latex mattress, a mixture in which we find a cellular foam and 25% natural latex
What are the characteristics of a latex mattress?
The qualities of latex make it an extremely comfortable mattress. In addition to its active and resilient elastic characteristics, the latex mattress has great adaptability.
Ergonomically, it absorbs the contours of the body and ensures a perfect fit. The comfort zones, ranging from 3 to 7 zones, are a factor in reducing pressure, which in turn causes poor blood circulation and encourages people to turn and roll over in bed during sleep. With a latex mattress, the risk of a break in the sleep cycle is considerably reduced.
Latex is an ultra-breathable material that ensures maximum ventilation, providing a feeling of warmth in winter and coolness in summer. Highly resistant, latex mattresses have a long life span, in the order of 10 to 15 years, and retain their qualities of comfort and firmness for a long time without sagging.
Depending on the degree of firmness, which varies from 65 to 85 kg/m³, the density of the mattress allows it to resist crushing over time. Natural latex mattresses also have hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and anti-mite properties.
