Hi scully967.

Welcome to the Mattress Forum. :)

With so many manufacturers and retailers available and so many changes within the retail landscape, it is impossible to maintain a current manufacturer database for the entire service area (we are world-wide in audience). Instead, we created our Trusted Member program of expert manufacturers/ retailers to help with consumer questions and education, as well as offer advice regarding component recommendations. These industry professionals have the expertise to help consumers make educated choices based on their years of experience and deep product knowledge. We feel they are among the best mattress and component producers in terms of quality, value and service.

That said, Phoenix has - in the past - provided some resources to consumers in the North Carolina area. I cannot tell you which of these companies is closest to you or which are still in business but these are recommendations offered by Phoenix as far back as 2012.

www.lakemattress.biz/ Local factory direct manufacturer in Conover. They make a wide range of memory foam and latex and hybrid mattresses. They don't have finished mattresses at the factory but they will put layers together to give their local customers a good sense of what they feel like. Good quality and selection of different types of layering and good value.

www.originalmattress.com/ Regional factory direct manufacturer with an outlet in Hickory. Makes some good quality and good value mattresses including latex, innersprings, and memory foam. They have two latex models and also have a new memory foam model which uses high quality materials and has good value.

www.royalekomfortbedding.com/index.htm Local factory direct manufacturer in Taylorsville. Makes a range of mattresses including innersprings, latex, and memory foam.

www.dilworthmattressfactory.com/ Local factory direct manufacturer in Charlotte that also makes a wide range of matresses with quality materials and good value but focuses on latex. Has memory foam mattresses for those that want it but made by another manufacturer.

www.coltonmattress.com/ Local factory direct manufacturer in Asheville. Makes a wide range of mattresses using quality materials including HR polyfoam, latex, and memory foam.

www.verlo.com/stores/NC/AS Asheville, NC. Regional manufacturer. They also make latex, memory foam, and innerspring mattresses that may have some better quality and value.

nestorganics.com/ Asheville. Carry Savvy Rest mattresses which are a high quality "choose your own layer" latex mattress that uses good quality materials (Dunlop and Talalay latex) but may not be in the best "value" range compared to other similar mattresses.

www.sleepeasymattressgaffneysc.com/ Local factory direct manufacturer in Gaffney, SC. They make all types of mattresses including innerspring, memory foam, and latex.

High Point Bedding Local factory direct manufacturer in High Point. Makes mainly lower budget and good value innerspring/polyfoam mattresses. No website.

www.walkerbeddingcompany.com/Products.html Local factory direct manufacturer in High Point.

www.bandlbedding.net/ Local factory direct manufacturer in High Point who makes quality mattresses using high quality material with very good value.

reliablebeddingcompany.com/ Another factory direct manufacturer in High Point that has been making a range of two sided innerspring mattresses for over 40 years.

www.theorganicsleepshop.com/ Retailer in Pineville that carries Savvy Rest component latex mattresses along with Organicpedic (OMI), NJaturepedic, Hypnos, and Gold Bond mattresses. They are all high quality mattresses but some of them may also be in more premium price ranges so I would make some careful "value" comparisons here.

sleepworldnc.com/ Retailer in Asheville and Arden. They carry Pure Talalay Bliss, Anatomic Global, and Organicpedic mattresses

www.agoodnightsleepstore.com/ Wilmington. Pure Talaly Bliss.

fredsbedsonline.com/ Wilmington. Also carry Pure Talalay Bliss.

www.shopcustomhome.com/ Wilmington. Park Place

aamattressandfurniture.com/ Wilmington. Jamison, Restonic, Pure Talalay Bliss.

hampstead-furniture.com/ Hampstead. Golden, Therapedic.

Hoping this gives you a springboard. I'd also recommend reading our Mattress Shopping Tutorial and how to choose a quality outlet to help you get started.

Hello Ellen07

Thank you for your inquiry.

I can only speak on what I see on their website. They seem to offer quality mattresses. They offer a latex mattress (not sure what type of latex, or how much is in the mattress) as well as a couple versions of pocketed coil mattresses. If you haven't already, I would call them to inquire about the specific mattress(es) you are interested in.
We are happy to answer questions about any particular model that you maybe interested in. Please keep us posted should you call them. Thanks again!

This site has been so very informative and helpful. It steered us to some good local folks (asheville, nc area) to try some mattresses. We went to sleepworld and colton mattress. We found that we both like the feel of memory foam best and that we also both liked softer, more sinking in than we thought we would. Tempurpedic cloud luxe and similar types. We did fnd tough that our budget didnt quite meet those that we tried and liked best. This site then gave us another option to check out in Dreamfoam bedding. Their 13" gel ultimate dreams mattress seems to meet our basic desired construction, our personal preferences, and our budget. We also checked out a local place that sells Park Place mattresses and tested their Sanctuary mattress, which we did like, but the cost was still a bit more than dreamfoam and I am not sure exactly what each layer is and what densities. We feel like the Dreamfoam 13" is going to be the right choice for us. Any thoughts. Any suggestions on a foundation? Thanks again for the helpful site.

Hi shell,

Thank you for the reply Phoenix. I understand that my PPP is going to be different from anyone else's PPP and that's only something that I can determine but even after reading many many posts on this site and now reading the ones you suggested in your response, I'm still at a loss for how to try to configure the layers of a latex mattress to provide the pressure relief I need while getting the support in my torso/waist area.


There are only 3 ways to choose a mattress.

The first one is generally the least risky which is based on your own careful and objective personal testing (see post #4 here ).

The second one is if you are purchasing a mattress from an online retailer or manufacturer that you can't test in person before a purchase which would involve a more detailed conversation on the phone with the retailer or manufacturer you are considering. They will always be your best source of guidance about their own mattresses and the options they have available.

The final way would be if you are designing and building your own mattress from individual components and a cover that you purchase separately and for those who are considering this I would make sure to read option 3 in post #15 here (and the posts it links to) to make sure you have realistic expectations of the learning curve, trial and error, and in some cases the additional costs that may be involved if you make any "mistakes" in your initial layer choices and they can't be exchanged or returned.

If finding a suitable mattress is particularly challenging for you because you have an unusual body type or heath considerations or because you have a narrower range of mattresses that would be suitable for you in terms of PPP than most people then zoning may be a good option to consider.

I live in the Asheville, NC area and have been to Colton's (working with Mike and he is ordering a latex layer with a 19 ILD to try on a mattress where the layers can be changed), Sleep World where I am working with Jeff and laid on the PLB and OMI (Organicpedic), and Nest Organics where I tried the Savvy Rest. In all of these stores I could find good pressure relief but my spine was never quite in line. I even brought in a broom handle as you suggested and took a few pictures.


It sounds like you may have seen this already but the better options or possibilities I'm aware of in the Asheville, NC area are listed in post #4 here .

I asked Jeff about the ILD of the layers in the OMI and he contacted the manufacturer who told him that this information was proprietary and they could not release it. Does that sound weird and/or sketchy?


This is more the norm than the exception in the industry because ILD's are "comfort specs" that many manufacturers wish to keep proprietary because they have little to do with the quality of the materials and aren't important to know when you are testing a local mattress because your body will tell you much more than the ILD's whether a mattress is a good match for you and if they release the "comfort specs" then they would be opening the door for their potential customers to try duplicate the layers and components of their mattresses (which may or may not be successful) which may cost them business that they would rather have themselves.

I plan on going back to test this configuration but wondered if there is another configuration that you might suggest for someone of my build. (It is hard to get out of the house with a 9 month old so I have to make every trip worth it)


Unfortunately as I mentioned in my last reply, there are too many unknowns and variables and personal preferences involved for anyone to make specific suggestions or recommendations based on specs (either yours or a mattress).

I'm happy to help with "how" to choose but the specifics of "what" to choose are always up to each person's careful testing or a more detailed conversation with an online manufacturer.

Does that sound weird and/or sketchy? I just want to know how soft the top layer is in comparison to other soft layers I've tried. I also asked Jeff if we could change out some of the layers in the OMI and he only has the one bed so there is the top layer that spans the bed (soft) and then he has one side with soft and then medium and one side with medium and then firm. While I was in the store testing beds Jeff suggested I use a topper to fix the problem of support in my torso area. I tried two different kinds and didn't feel like that was the solution.

I also called Savvy Rest today to see if they could help me figure out a configuration to try that I hadn't already done (I tried soft talalay-soft dunlop-medium dunlop / soft talalay-medium dulop-firm dunlop / soft talalay-medium dunlop-soft dunlop) and the women suggested soft talalay-soft dunlop-firm dunlop. I plan on going back to test this configuration but wondered if there is another configuration that you might suggest for someone of my build. (It is hard to get out of the house with a 9 month old so I have to make every trip worth it)

Thanks so much!!!!

Hi Wbailey,

When you make comments like these it's important to provide the details about your experience with them and why you feel the way you do.

I'm sure you will understand that without more specifics nobody can decide for themselves whether any issues you may have with Colton are reasonable or legitimate.

I'm moving to the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area, and I need a new mattress. I have a platform bed for which I need a queen mattress (no boxspring). I (think) I prefer medium firm with a pillow top. My budget is somewhat limited, so I don't need top, top, top of the line unless it's deeply discounted. I'll be near High Point and Hickory, "the furniture capitals of the country", and I'd like to know if there are any good deals to be found there. Also, are there any Charles P. Rogers outlets there? I heard that's a good midrange option. I like Colton here in Asheville, but shipping might be prohibitive. Thank you, and I hope I'm not duplicating any earlier posts, but a search for north carolina didn't show any results.

Hi NightOwl,

You compared the OMF memory foam bed to the Temperpedic Rhapsody.


Yes ... but only in terms of the quality and density of the memory foam layers. I don't know how they will compare in terms of "feel" or PPP for you.

Thanks for the direction to the other posts. I have read them before. Again, still putting it all together and figuring out how all that info applies once you are on a showroom floor.


On the showroom floor your personal testing using the testing guidelines for comfort/pressure relief and support/alignment and any other preferences you can test for is the best way to compare mattresses in terms of PPP. Once you know a mattress is suitable for your needs and preferences then this along with knowing the quality of the materials will help you make meaningful comparisons in terms of comfort, support, and quality/durability which are among the most important parts of comparing the relative value of two mattresses.

I would narrow down your choices at each manufacturer or retailer you visit to one finalist (as if they were the only place you could make a purchase from) and then make your final choice between the "best" at each location.

I'm looking forward to your feedback when you visit Colton's.

You compared the OMF memory foam bed to the Temperpedic Rhapsody. I have not been on that bed, preferring the Temperpedic Cloud-Luxe, which is on the softer side, so you can see where I am in the search for pressure relief. I now know more about quality, durability and support, so still trying to find that right mattress for me.

I did call Colton Mattress in Asheville and had a great conversation with Mike, who I see is mentioned several times after I searched the forum for "Colton" as you suggested. Planning on making the trip on Friday.

Grateful for your advice.

Hi NightOwl,

Lot of information on ILD, density, quality, etc. to figure out. Can you take a look at Lake Mattress site and provide a good starting point for quality?


All of the mattresses at Lake Mattress use good quality materials and have good value. In terms of PPP though (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences) there are too many variables and unknowns to use a formula based on theory or specs to choose a mattress. There are some links to some generic guidelines in mattress firmness/comfort levels in post #2 here but these are only generic and meant to give you some insights into what to look for and your own careful and objective testing and experience using the testing guidelines is the only way to know which mattress is most suitable for your specific needs and preferences. Each person can be unique in terms of their body shape, weight distribution, and all the positions they sleep in.

I want firm support, but softer mattresses feels great to me to alleviate pressure/pain issues. Of course I am concerned about longevity, durability of materials in the bed and don't want it to break down.


All of this is common for all people (firmer even support, pressure relieving comfort layers, and durable materials) but of course each person has their own variation of firmer/softer/durable. The goal is to make sure your spine and joints are in good alignment in all your sleeping positions (support), to make sure that your body weight is spread out over the surface of the mattress and not just on your pressure points (pressure relief) and of course that the quality of the materials is good so that the mattress doesn't soften and break down prematurely (this can't be felt in a showroom which is why it's so important to know the details of all the layers in your mattress ... especially in the upper layers which are the most likely to break down the fastest). There are also other things that can be important preferences as well such as the ease of movement on the mattress, motion isolation, temperature regulation, and the overall subjective "feel" of the mattress.

Primary support that "stops" the pelvis from sinking down too far and tilting the pelvis (which is the main thing that controls the natural curve of the lumbar spine) is the role of the deeper layers which need to be firmer. These are usually called the support layers. The upper layers provide secondary support and pressure relief and need to be soft enough to allow you to sink in and "cradle" your body to fill in and provide lighter support under the gaps in your sleeping profile (such as the inward lumbar curve or waist) and to redistribute pressure away from the pressure points or "bony prominences" (hips, shoulders, etc). The key for all people is firm enough in the support layers, soft and thick enough in the comfort layers, and durable enough depending on body weight and budget (see post #4 here about all the factors that can affect the durability of a mattress). Too firm or too soft can both have a negative effect on pressure relief and alignment.

Here's the specs given to me at store (they are not on website):

4 inches high density memory foam composed of:
1.5 inches 8 lb 10ILD
2.5 inches 5 lb. 10 ILD
Air flow foam layer to reduce heat/ increase response time (this was almost see through, 1/4 to 1/2 inch)
6 inches 2.2 lb. density 30 ILD high density foam core

What do you think of this one?


Unfortunately they no longer make these (due to a patent infringement claim by Tempurpedic apparently) and are only selling their remaining stock. That''s unfortunate because they use good quality high density memory foam similar to the Tempurpedic HD line such as the Rhapsody and have good value. Again though only your own testing can determine it's suitability for your body type and sleeping style. It would be much firmer than a mattress with thicker layers of lower density memory foam and for some people it may feel too firm. The airflow layer is called reticulated foam of fast dri foam which highly breathable and is the type of foam that will allow water and air to go right through it.

thetradeoff between higher and lower density memory foams is that higher density memory foams are more durable (up toabout 6 lbs or so where the durability benefits start to level off) but are usually slower to respond to heat and pressure (have more of a "sleeping in sand feeling) and can feel firmer which is why lower density 4 lb memory foams are often used for people who like a softer feel.

May make the trip to Colton Mattress in Asheville. Not much info on website. Called and did not get a lot of specific information about materials and densities of foams used. Will call again. Have to know more in order to make the trip.


A forum search on Colton (you can just click this) will bring up more information and feedback about them that you can scan.

I'm 5'10", 140 lbs, side sleeper, middle-aged woman with some arthritis and rehabilitating a sports injury that affects back, gluts, hamstrings. Taking a long time to heal injury but so much better now and I am almost 100% with all my sport activities. Shoulders are are on the broad side. I want firm support, but softer mattresses feels great to me to alleviate pressure/pain issues. Of course I am concerned about longevity, durability of materials in the bed and don't want it to break down.

Saw thread on latex mattresses at OMF. One of them is way too soft and other other was only ok for me. Memory foam mattress there seemed fine, but on the firmer side. Here's the specs given to me at store (they are not on website):

4 inches high density memory foam composed of:
1.5 inches 8 lb 10ILD
2.5 inches 5 lb. 10 ILD

I have now been sleeping on the latex mattress from Colton's (full review above) for almost 2 months with nothing but good things to say about it. It is w/o a doubt the most comfortable mattress I have ever experienced. In fact it gets more comfortable every time I sleep on it. All back and neck pain have been alleviated by this new mattress & my wife loves that I did the proper research to get it.

Please let me know if anyone has any questions about latex mattresses or Colton's in general.

We are moving to Waynesville, NC where there's one mattress manufacturing company; www.coltonmattress.com/ . I'm looking for queen size latex mattress at an affordable price-meaning around $500. I don't think these exist. Any suggestions other than buying at national retail stores?
