Designboom Delves Deep into the Hästens Experience

Posted July 30th, 2018 in Uncategorized by Jorge Lopez

Ever since it began handcrafting mattresses in the 1850s, the Hästens brand has been regarded as one of the world’s best. Its mattresses are renowned for their comfort as well as the meticulous attention that goes into its fabrics, stuffings, and the stitching. With its impeccable reputation, the brand has gained favor among celebrities and athletes and it also holds high regard with the Swedish royal court. In fact, the prince of Sweden, Carl Philip Bernadotte is one half of the design firm Bernadotte & Kylberg which collaborated with Hästens to create its limited edition Appaloosa and Marwari mattresses.

If you’ve ever wanted to delve deeper into Hästens, its history, and the painstaking process that goes into its mattress making, the web magazine Designboom published an article titled “The Art of Mattress Making: Hästens on How They Craft the Perfect Queen Fit for a King”. The article also includes a fascinating interview with Jan Ryde, the Hästens CEO, in which he discusses the importance of sleep, the company’s ongoing innovation, and more.

If you’ve yet to try a Hästens bed, visit Brickell Mattress. We’re almost certain you’ve never rested on a mattress like these Swedish works of art.

Perfect Alignment. Perfect Support of the Body. Incredible Comfort

“IF ARE YOU…  OVER 225 POUNDS   or  6’ 3” & TALLER…”

Less than 1% of Mattresses will Fit You


Brickell Mattress of Miami has been a world leader in Custom Matching OverSize Mattresses & Mattresses for the Heavy. First of all WE CARE… But just as important is our     Flexibility in Production, Mattresses w/  Firmness Options in Support, Access to the Materials needed by the Big & Tall, & finally a rigorous- yet holistic- training in the Science of Sleep.

99.5% of mattresses sold in stores today are made for people to fit “average” height and weight people. For years Big & Tall people, many of whom are already putting their body’s through above average stress due to their occupation or even just their sheer size, have found it nearly impossible to find a mattress that is both Comfortable and properly Supportive—offering Spinal Alignment AND Support without BOTTOMING OUT—let alone one that actually lasts!!


  • FEEL Comfortable


    Alignment & Support & Pressure Points. Same applies for all people; Sturdier materials is how we achieve perfect alignment support, and pressure relief for our Larger Customers. We Adjust FIRMNESS. WE ADJUST SIZES. BRICKELLMATTRESS.COM

  • RELIEVE Pressure Points
  • SUPPORT Spinal Alignment & Muscle Support

In a normal mattress, the comfort materials and support layers/springs give more in the heavier areas of a persons body, and less in the lighter areas, allowing the person to almost “float” in a state of “minimized pressure”. Because these beds are made for foilks that 5’6” & 160lbs, when a 6’7” 293lb man lies down, he simply falls through those layers and “bottoms out” on whatever is beneath (box spring, mattress casing, etc)…



  1. EVERY BED, ANY SIZE… So if you are tall, we can make a bed that is 90”x 94” (like we recently did for a professional basketball player), or a 10’ round mattress, or even a triangle shaped mattress with obscure curves for a boat, yacht, or RV. And we don’t screw you on price!! Why should a bed 20% Larger cost 5X as much???
  2. SPECIFICIALLY MANUFACTURE MATERIALS WITH A HEAVY PERSONS’ COMFORT & SUPPORT IN MIND… Whether it’s a higher coil Tension on SPRINGS, a thicker piece of LATEX or anything else that allows us to get the ‘Comfort/Pressure Relief/Aligned Support Equation’ Just Right, we’ll do what it takes.

  3. SCIENTIFICALLY FIT OUR CLIENTS to a Mattress…. Using things like a BMI chart and actually seeing how their spine is aligned, back and shoulders are supported, and testing for desired comfort allows us to recommend the ideal bed for your Comfort Desires, Pressure Relief Needs, & your Support Needs– Improving Long-term Health by making sure you spend a 1/3 of your life in the best possible position of support. See our VISPRING Beds in Miami



            ULTRA-LUXURY OPTIONS EXCEED $20,000.00

Unfortunately discrimination laws don’t apply to what products retail stores carry. So what has happened is that most Big and Tall folks find themselves making a compromise…. Letting their feet dangle off the end of the Bed or Enduring tremendous pressure on their hips and shoulders on an uncomfortably Firm Bed in order avoid sagging through the mattress…



Athlete Mattresses Sizes For Big & Tall Chart



  1. There’s no good solution to buying a Mattress if you’re over 250 lbs.

  2. If  you’re Obese you should buy an Extra-Firm Bed

  3.Cal-King(72”W X 84”L) is as long as mattresses are made

  4. Custom Sized Beds are priced only for the Rich and Famous

  5. Buying the Thickest Mattress(or most expensive) will Solve your problems

                           Call us to arrange an in person or over-the-phone Consultation



At Brickell Mattress, we cater to each type of individual – big, tall, small, or short. There are many concerns for large people when it comes to selecting the perfect mattress for their needs. These major concerns are support, alignment, pressure relief, and longevity of the mattress under the unique stresses provided by larger people. Our Mattress Line can be custom-adjusted to use denser foams than normal, for added support and comfort for larger individuals. Thicker comfort layers are also used to conform and cradle larger body types and adequately support a much heavier person without compromising spinal alignment or comfort. Our Select Foam HD Collection is ideal for larger individuals because it employs these very aspects, offering the best comfort and support available.

Furthermore, here at Brickell Mattress we offer the ability to custom-

design Latex Mattresses to suit every person’s needs. Latex Beds offer much more support, often times having a “bouncy” or “springy” feel. In addition, Latex Beds have the longest lifetime of any type of bed for that exact reason. Our All-Natural Organic Latex is the highest-quality, most eco-friendly latex on the market today and as a result, is also the most comfortable.

If  Latex is the route you wish to take to ensure a great night’s rest each and every night, we also offer two of the world’s most luxurious spring mattress producers Carpe Diem and Vi-Spring. BEDS MADE IN EXTRA-FIRM, FIRM, MEDIUM & SOFT “Support Layer Tension”.

For taller people, we offer our Select Foam California King, which is 84 inches in length. We also build custom-length beds up to 96 inches, and even longer if you so choose.

We have the ability to custom-fit a bed to a body type by —-the process—–. For added assurance that you will be getting the best mattress for your needs, if we do not have a production model that suits you, we will simply create a custom bed for you.

Our first and foremost concern is bettering our clients’ ability to sleep, and ultimately wakeup well-rested and ready to take on each day’s new challenges with a clearer mind and more energy. By offering both our production line mattresses and the ability to custom-build your own specific mattress, we are positive that you will rest assured that you are getting the best sleep experience possible, for the best price.

Sleep Clean: Is It Time for an Organic Mattress?

Posted March 21st, 2015 in From Our Sleep Experts, Uncategorized, Vi-Spring by Mattress Matters

Sleep Clean: Organic Cotton from Natural MattressThe first thing that usually sends thinking people who care about their health running to the “organic mattress store” is the realization that most beds are soaked in flame retardant. For 99% of the beds out there, such a chemical treatment is necessary – beds have to meet certain fire safety standards, and the cheapest and best way to get synthetic petroleum based foams and highly flammable polyester fabrics, fillers and other junk to meet those standards is to cover them with poison chemical fire retardant.

If you are one of the enlightened and have made the decision to sleep organic, here is a checklist to help you compare organic mattresses and choose the one that is right for you.

Things to Consider When ‘Going Organic’

  1. Get the facts straight. There is a lot of misinformation out there and you should be aware that a mattress can be called “organic” as long as it has some organic material in it. For example, a mattress may contain organic cotton as a filler, and be advertised as an organic mattress, even if there is glue and polyurethane foam inside and a have a toxic acrylic, rayon or nylon fabric covering the entire thing.
  2. Make a list of known organic mattress materials so that when you are making comparisons, the process of elimination will be as simple as crossing off those beds that have anything else inside. Look for things like: organic wool, organic cotton, organic bamboo, organic steel, or special coir fiber which is made of shredded coconut shells. Organic wool is especially important because in its natural, untreated form, it is naturally fire resistant, antimicrobial, anti-allergen, dust mite and bed bug resistant. Equally important, it is supremely comfortable.
  3. One important note about organic latex. If you are considering a natural latex mattress, make sure it is 100% from organic non-chemically treated rubber trees. However, there is no mattress company making a 100% organic latex bed. It is not possible to whip sap from the rubber tree and produce a natural foam. There must be at least some additives.
  4. Last, just like food, if you have never heard of it, it is probably not good for you. Take mattresses with things like polyurethane foam, formaldehyde, boric acid, antimony, melamine, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers off of your natural organic mattress comparison list.

Brands That Use Organic Materials in Mattresses

We have done the research and here is our short list of acceptable organic mattresses.

  1. Hastens: Renowned Swedish mattress masters Hästens make each one of their mattresses by hand using natural materials like horsehair, flax, wool, steel and pine.
  2. Savvy Rest: Organic mattresses made in Virginia with natural latex, organic cotton and organic wool.
  3. White Lotus: A great source for healthy bedding, including natural latex mattresses, organic wool and cotton mattresses, all handmade in the US
  4. The Wool Bed Company: Natural wool mattresses, hand-made, free-form, include only material raised or grown on farmland in the USA, without any wood, metal, foam or latex.
  5. Woodstock Organic Mattress: Handmade in the USA of 100% natural materials like organic cotton, wool, horsehair, and 98% pure latex. No polyester, polyurethane foam, or other harmful chemicals are used.
  6. Editors Pick! Vispring: Hand made in England with natural materials including Shetland wool, organic cotton, and Austrian horsetail. Learn more about Vispring at Brickell Mattress in Miami.

So, Time to Go Organic?

Natural and Organic mattresses are much more comfortable than synthetic. This how people used to sleep, on top of all natural farm raised goodness, and it is still the best. You can experience the luxurious comfort of all natural organic mattresses at Brickell Mattress, South Florida’s Specialty Sleep Store.

Get Better Sleep

Posted August 28th, 2014 in Uncategorized by Mattress Matters

With the fast pace lifestyle that many of us lead, there’s one thing we never seem to get enough of…. sleep. Sleep plays a vital role in our overall well-being, so we definitely pay the price when we don’t get enough. Here are some tips on how to get better sleep.

  1. Set your bedtime, and stick to it

Go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even on weekends, holidays and days off. Being consistent reinforces your body’s sleep-wake cycle and helps promote better sleep at night.

bed time

  1. Create a bedtime ritual

Do the same things each night to tell your body it’s time to wind down. Your body needs time to shift into sleep mode, so spend the last hour before bed doing a calming activity such as reading. Relaxing habits can promote better sleep by easing the transition between wakefulness and drowsiness.

  1. Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise has been shown to improve sleep quality, as long as you don’t work out too close to bedtime. A post-workout burst of energy can keep you awake. Aim to finish any vigorous exercise 3 to 4 hours before you hit the hay.


  1. Avoid Napping

Power napping may help get you through the day, but if you find that you can’t fall asleep at bedtime, eliminating even short catnaps may help you doze off later on.

  1. Get Comfortable

Design your sleep environment to provide the conditions you need for sleep. Your bedroom should be a cool temperature, and should also be free from any noise that might disturb your sleep. Finally, your bedroom should be free from any light. Make sure your mattress is comfortable and supportive. The one you have been using for years may have exceeded its life expectancy – about 9 or 10 years for most quality mattresses.









Is It Time For a New Luxury Mattress

Posted August 13th, 2014 in Uncategorized by Mattress Matters

could-you-have-a-sleep-disorderIt is no surprise that sleep plays an important roll in your overall health, but it may be a bit astonishing to find out how critical your mattress is in this equation.  To put it in simple turns, sleeping on a bad mattress is like trying to scuba dive without the right equipment. In a 2011 poll, by the National Sleep Foundation over 90 percent of people said a comfortable mattress is important to a good night’s sleep.

By now, I’m sure we’ve heard all the benefits of getting a good nights rest from, weight loss, to a longer life span. What most people aren’t aware of are the negative effects of sleeping on a low quality mattress.

Not only is sleeping on a low quality mattress uncomfortable, but studies have shown that sleeping on a bad mattress effects stress levels, allergies, and mood. That doesn’t even include the negative effects it can have on your back.  Here are some signs that you might be ready for a new luxury mattress. If you are no longer sleeping like you used to it may time for a new mattress, especially of you’re sleeping better away from home.  You don’t need to wait for the springs to start popping out to know that its time to move on.  Dust mites feed on the dead skin cells you shed, and a whole host of them can be found in and on your bed. As many as 20 million Americans are allergic to the dust mites, so if your allergies are acting up more than usual it may be time to upgrade to a luxury mattress. Another key sign that its time to part ways is if you’re experiencing worrying, racing thoughts, nervousness, etc. before bed. These symptoms maybe related to sleep quality and maybe signs that you need a new mattress.

The most important thing to remember is when it comes to your health; sleep is not something you can sacrifice. So when choosing your new luxury mattress, remember you can’t truly put a price tag on good sleep.

Ten Tips For the Best Sleep You Have Ever Had

Posted June 19th, 2013 in Uncategorized by cnelson

We often take our sleep and the benefits that go along with it for granted, when really sleep is an essential activity to not only our physical health but our mental health as well. A better sleep can make such a difference in our lives, a fact that many don’t realize. Here are ten tips for a better sleep, resulting ultimately in a healthier, happier life.

Prioritize Sleep

Sleep is really the next healthiest thing you can do for your body everyday besides eating healthy and exercising. The more importance you assign to your sleep, the more of a health benefit you will receive.

Find Your Balance

Not all of us need the same amount of sleep. Eight hours may be good for some and not enough for others. Work out the amount of sleep that is the best for you.

Keep a Regular Routine

Our bodies, when put into a sleep routine, are programmed to a rhythm of activity and inactivity. The more regular you are in your sleep patterns, the better the body will adapt to that particular pattern, leading to a deeper, more beneficial and more restorative state of sleep.

You Need Space

Invest in the largest bed possible you room can accommodate so that you can better allow yourself to have a more luxurious, undisturbed sleep.

Time in the Sun

Your body reacts to natural light waking you, and does the same for when it gets dark, prompting sleepiness and assisting your natural sleep routine. Make sure you get a reasonable amount of time outside each day.

Be Active

The more active and engaged we are during the day, the better we sleep at night. Make sure you partake in some amount of physical or mental exercise each day to get the most out of your sleep.

Ease Yourself into Bed

Try to avoid late night stimulation from caffeine, alcohol, or nicotine before going to bed. These stimuli, closer to bedtime, may knock your body off of its natural sleep schedule, causing you to lie awake or avoid a deeper sleep.

Relax Your Body and Mind

Before going to bed it is important you prepare yourself for sleep. Calming activities that slow your breathing and heart rate down, like reading a book or doing a word puzzle, are excellent for preparing you for bed. Find a routine that works best for you.

Right Atmosphere

Ensure that you are in a dark and quiet environment that is the ideal temperature for your sleep. This will not only help you fall asleep but will help you stay asleep, again promoting a deeper and more restorative sleep.

Invest in a Quality Bed

This is one of the most important tips for a better sleep. So many of us go out and buy a cheap bargain mattress that has bad support and hardly any pressure relief, a ticket for tossing and turning and excessive back pain. A good quality bed is the key to a good night’s rest, so make sure that you invest in a bed that is truly comfortable and provides the right feel and support for your particular figure. It is important that you sleep on a bed that is personalized to you. Carpe Diem and Vi-Spring are both excellent luxury bed makers that build beds geared to provide the best sleep possible. These beds are designed to be fit to you, and exhibit the most quality and comfort of any other bed makers in the Ultra-Luxury category.
