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.
Get the perfect fit for your round bed base with a custom round mattress
As four-poster beds were once sought after by the elite of Renaissance Europe for their sophistication and class, the round bed is recognised as its modern counterpart, representing a piece of bedroom furniture for those who want something truly extraordinary.
A statement piece in the boldest of bedrooms, the circular mattress is a niche declaration of originality, style and taste. Best suited to larger rooms and bedrooms which benefit from plenty of natural light, the round mattress is the bed of choice for some of our most discerning customers. With no standard sizes available, and few if any manufactures producing fully sprung round mattresses, this type of bed embodies our desire to produce and design beds which are as unique and individual as our customers, while ensuring they remain deeply supportive and supremely comfortable.
All our handmade round mattresses are pocket sprung and never contain foam, instead we use fillings such as cotton, lambswool, horsehair and cashmere. These natural fibres outperform synthetic substitutes in terms of breathability, hygiene and heat regulation as well as the level of comfort offered.
Here are just some of the things which make our round mattress Odd…
A round mattress made especially for you
At The Odd Company all our round beds are made to order. As a bespoke piece the dimensions of your round mattress can be tailored specifically to your pre-existing bed or bed base, or the size of your room, ensuring a perfect fit and ideal aesthetics. We can also make a bed base or divan for your round mattress; more details of this service can be found below.
In the case of a replacement mattress, all we require is the mattresses diameter. Be sure to measure the bed and not the mattress when taking down this size, as round mattresses are incredibly difficult to measure accurately. In order to price a round mattress we simply work out the price of a square mattress, and then charge an additional £260 to shape the corners and make it circular.
Mattresses made the Odd way
All our luxury round mattress are made by hand using traditional English crafting methods and only the finest materials.
During the design process, you’ll get to choose the type of deep natural fillings we place on top of the individually pocketed steel spring system which makes up core of your round mattress. Each layer of fillings has a specific purpose to ensure the utmost comfort and deliver the highest quality of sleep. We only use natural fillings due to their exceptional ability to wick away moisture through the course of an evening and regulate your body temperature, leaving you to feel rejuvenated from a quality nights slumber the following morning. Natural materials, unlike many of their synthetic substitutes, are also 100% biodegradable, meaning they are good for the planet, as well as you.
Only ever pocket sprung…
Our bespoke, round mattresses are always pocket sprung using the highest quality British manufactured steel springs. At The Odd Company we only make fully sprung mattresses as in our view no other system offers your body a comparable level of support while you sleep.
Together with the soft natural fillings, a pocket sprung round mattress provides the ultimate level of comfort as well as posture alignment and muscle and joint relieving support.
Bed divans and bed bases for your round mattress
Like our round mattresses our upholstered circular bed bases and divan beds can be made to any diameter you choose to perfectly match your mattress.
Divans and bed bases can be made with a sprung top to offer the optimal supportive foundation on which to place your mattress or a firm perforated top if you’d prefer. The price of circular divans and bed base is calculated by taking the price of a square divan, and then adding £260.00 to create the four rounded corners.
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 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.
