Bespoke mattresses

You’re asleep for nearly a third of your life. Why not sleep on a mattress that was made for you?

Over the next ten years, you’ll spend over 29,000 hours sleeping. Making the purchase of a bespoke mattress is, therefore, a decision that should not be rushed into. In an industry awash with misinformation, it can be difficult to know where to begin; and how to separate important considerations, from irrelevant, inflated details which are merely a selling ploy. At The Odd Company, we pride ourselves on providing honest, question-led advice to ensure that the bespoke mattress we make  for you is perfect for your needs.

Our bespoke mattresses can be made to your requirements from the width, length or depth, to the type of natural fillings we place on top of the steel pocket springs. Maybe you’re over 6’6” and require an extra long bespoke mattress to ensure your feet don’t protrude over the end of the bed, or perhaps you value natural materials and hate the idea of sleeping on a mattress containing synthetic fibres, like foam. Whatever your requirements, we can make a bespoke mattress to your exact specifications, just for you.

Here are just some of the areas we can tailor especially for you, when creating your bespoke mattress…

An Odd size?

At The Odd Company we produce superb, handmade fully sprung mattresses to any shape or size – it’s the foundation of our unique business.

We’ve made many unusual shapes and sizes over the years; from mattresses for circular  beds, to octagonal beds, to bespoke mattresses which match the curved shape of a super yacht’s hull!

We’ve even made a mattress three meters square (our largest to date) for a German customer who really wanted to spread out while they slept. When it comes to shape and size, anything is possible. We are able to make your bespoke mattress to perfectly fit your needs, whatever the challenge.

Only ever fully sprung…

Our bespoke, made to measure mattresses are always fully sprung using the highest quality British manufactured steel springs. At The Odd Company we only ever make fully sprung mattresses, as in our view no other system offers your body a comparable level of support and comfort while you sleep.

When it comes to spring system there are two types to choose from; the interior spring unit, which is also known as an open coil spring, and the more modern pocket spring. Both systems serve different requirements but when it comes to supporting the contours of your body the pocket spring system found in our bespoke mattresses is king. As the name suggest each 15 cm (6 inch) deep spring sits in its own individual fabric pocket, which allows each spring to be independent and move independently from those around it. Pocket sprung mattresses can therefore adapt and fit to the contours of your body much more effectively than interior sprung mattresses, or bespoke mattresses which have foam at their core. This independence also means that should your partner move during the course of the night – its estimated we all make upwards of 80 ‘measurable’ movements while we sleep –  you remain harmoniously undisturbed.

Natural Materials

We use natural fillings whenever we can. Not only are natural materials often hypoallergenic, they are also sustainable, and can be widely recycled when your bespoke mattress eventually needs replacing.

Synthetic materials like memory foam, petroleum-based rubber and latex are non-porous, making them great materials for the production of insulation, wellington boots and birthday balloons, but which should be kept out of the bedroom as much as possible. They are hot and unhygienic, breathe poorly, retain moisture and hold in heat. They also contain glues and solvents, which of course, evaporate creating an odour. That being said, if we were to find breathable, sustainable, man-made fibres which performed better than the fillings listed below for our bespoke mattresses we would of course consider using them: we just haven’t found any yet…

Because all of our mattresses use natural fillings, they’re hypoallergenic, non-irritable, and breathable. We use a cotton ticking to upholster our bespoke mattresses, for a most luxurious and comfortable finish.

 

A natural fibre which has been grown and harvested for the production of textiles and clothing for many centuries. This uniquely breathable and naturally absorbent filling is used in the construction of our mattresses due to its ability to naturally wick away moisture ensuring restful sleep.

A natural material which has played an important role in the British economy since the medieval period, and whose trade was once described as the ‘jewel in the crown of the realm’. Wool brings a number of benefits to a mattress. Unlike synthetic fibres which tend to trap and hold moisture and heat, wool’s structural composition makes it great at regulating temperature. Wool like cotton is also incredibly breathable, wicking away moisture and ensuring you stay cosy during winter months and cool during summer ones. It is thanks to these properties that we use it as a filling in some of our highest specification mattresses.

For hundreds of years, horsehair has been an important filling in mattresses of the highest specification. Before the interior and later pocket spring system were invented, each strand of curled hair acted like a tiny spring, creating support and elasticity within the mattress. We continue to use horsehair today for this exact same reason – think of it as providing an extra layer of natural micro-spring close to the sleeping surface, to complement the pocket sprung system found in the mattress core. Additionally the fluted structure which each strand forms channels moisture and heat away from the body while you sleep, replacing it with cooler, fresher air over the course of the night.

 

The coat of the Kashmir goat is considered one of the most luxurious wools available; its fine fibres – half the width of sheep’s wool – make it incredibly soft and springy to the touch and therefore one of the finest fillings that can be used in your mattress.

The goats take their name from the Kashmir region in the Indian subcontinent in which they were first found, an environment which is subject to extreme fluctuations in temperature. Cashmere, like other wools, is therefore an excellent regulator of heat. It is best to think of cashmere as a natural, silent air conditioning unit built into your bed. The structure of each hair is such that it directs heat along the fibre to be released into the cooler environment. When it is cold, cashmere’s crimp – the natural waviness of each hair – traps large volumes of air between its fibres, creating an insulation layer which holds heat.

"The Odd Company could not have been more helpful. Their information was succinct and comprehensive, their manner charming and their delivery reliable and punctual. I cannot recommend them more highly."

Dr. Jarman

"Really pleased to find this company, as I’d bought a Victorian cast-iron bed frame that was not a standard size. The mattress I ordered was beautifully made, traditional ticking, and very comfortable - a quality product."

Chris

"Excellent communication and extra speedy delivery of most comfortable mattress for an unusually sized bed. Will definitely use again."
