Buy a Mattress at Costco?

Should you Buy a Mattress at Costco? There are a lot of reasons why it’s better to buy a Mattress from your local, natural mattress producer. Yes we are that. But, believe it or not, these are not simply self serving reasons.

  1. When you buy a mattress at Costco, you’re buying from a large multinational company. Where was your mattress made? By whom? what kind of labour practices do they employ?
  2. When you buy a mattress from Fawcett, you’re supporting a small local company and contributing to the local economy.
  3. While Costco may be good for buying some items, they don’t have mattress specialists (that we know of) like Fawcett does.
  4. When you purchase a Mattress from Fawcett, you’re able to speak to the guy who makes it. You can watch your mattress being made! “what goes into a mattress” – is important.
  5. Fawcett builds its Mattresses from the most sustainable, natural materials available. Costco? not so much.
  6. A Fawcett Mattress’s firmness can be customized, for no additional fee. Firm one side, soft the other? Yes you can.
  7. Fawcett Mattresses (currently) have 34  5 out of 5 Google 5 star reviews. We’re a mattress shop, with some big distinctions.
  8. Costco, for most Victorians…is a bit of a jaunt – out of town. Think of the fuel you’ll save by shopping in the Rock Bay District!
  9. Fawcett makes custom RV and Yacht mattresses. We’re pretty sure that’s not on Costco’s radar. Need a ___ shaped mattress? We can do it.
  10. Factory Direct. Fawcett you’re paying for materials and skill. The result is an amazing product. Costco you’re paying a middleman.

Fawcett Square One Sofa

 

We started from “Square One” with this collection.

The Fawcett square one sofa pieces connect together to form any configuration you desire, and its static cushions make it ideal for the person who doesn’t like the look of loose seats and backs. The Square One keeps it simple; no loose cushions to constantly fluff and rearrange makes this collection very low maintenance.

We build furniture of the highest quality with the most environmentally friendly products available to us.

All of our furniture is constructed of sustainably farmed solid beech and an environmentally harvested ply that has no added urea formaldehyde. We pad our products with natural, fair trade latex and 100% organic and hypo-allergenic wool; the strong synergy between these components results in a product that wicks moisture and regulates temperature while offering maximum comfort.

Adjustable Bed and Mattress

We’ve combined our (new!) Boomerang bed with an adjustable bed and mattress to make a pretty amazing combo.

We’ve sold a a ton of them over the past 6 weeks…there seems to be something in the water…? or maybe it’s just that a lot of people are discovering how versatile they are.

Adjustable beds can be really useful for therapeutic purpose, such as recovery from surgery, swollen legs, back pain and circulation issues. They also offer a host of comfort benefits such as massage, customizable from side to side (the bases come as two separate single XL units to configure a King size bed) and a luxurious convenience for reading or watching television.

The new all wood Fawcett Queen Size Boomerang Bed, available in White Oak or Black Walnut,  starting at $3295  – in White Oak.

Mattress too firm ?

Mattress too firm? Are you an older person? then it may be causing sleep challenges. At least this is what research conducted by the Brazilian Association of Sleep has found. Elderly ‘subjects’ that slept on high firmness rated mattresses took an average of 67 minutes to fall asleep. When these people switched to a medium firm mattress, they took only 21 minutes to fall asleep.

Older couple walking together

As we age, we often acquire various ailments and chronic problems. These range from autoimmune, various injuries racked up along our journey in life or other diseases. In fact, 62% of adults aged 65-74 and and 81.5% of those over the age of 85 years old had two or more chronic conditions.

Given this, it means that as we age, we need to plan for these changes in our body so that we are able to get the proper amount of sleep required. Maybe you’ve liked firm mattresses through your adult life but haven’t been sleeping well…? It could be time to look at a new softer mattress.

But what if you need a softer mattress and your spouse sleeps great on the current firm one you have? At Fawcett, we have options. We’ve got something called our no compromise mattress. With our latex core models such as the M1 and M9, we can create a softer mattress on one side, and a firmer mattress on the other side. Even better, we’ll customize your mattress like this for no additional fee.

As we get older, our bodies change and what used to be comfortable, may not be now. Here are a few other tips courtesy of comfort keepers to get the best night’s sleep possible for older adults:

  • Make sure you follow a regular sleeping schedule, going to bed and rising at the same time each day.
  • Avoid taking long or frequent naps during the day.
  • Make sure you get regular exercise!
  • Sit in natural light; it regulates the body’s sleep-wake cycle.
  • Minimize caffeine and alcohol.
  • Make sure your bed is for sleeping only.  If you’re unable to fall asleep in 15 minutes, get up, move to a chair and try another activity.

Custom Mattress for RV – Yachts, Boats, Trailers, Motorhomes & Odd Size Beds

Yes it’s true. We could create a custom mattress for a Mars probe or nuclear submarine… although we must admit we haven’t been asked to yet.

We have recently created mattresses for Yachts, RV’s and other custom orders like odd size bunk beds and all sorts of other applications where an exact custom size mattress is required. We’ll also customize mattress firmness and materials according to your specific needs.

We create our custom mattresses made from the most sustainable and natural materials available. It also turns out that these materials – natural talalay latex, 100% organic cotton, and joma wool, also are components which last and provide exceptional comfort.

If you live in Victoria BC, we’ll help measure the required size. If you’re outside of Victoria, we’ll walk you through taking the correct measurements to ensure your final product is exactly what you need.

Airstream trailers or RV? A lot of people are retro-fitting these fine travel machines and updating upholstery as well as  – their sleeping areas with Fawcett Mattresses. VW Vanagon? Chevy Motohome? Winnebago?

We’re able to ship anywhere in North America, heck, probably even overseas to Europe or beyond if that’s where you need the mattress to go. Let us know what we can create for your special project, vehicle or yacht.z

 

Here’s an image of a original 1980’s airstream chair we started with…once stripped down, we begin to add the new fabric.
