For many, the idea of ever having the chance to sleep on a luxury mattress is nothing more than a dream. They walk past the $5,000 TempurPedics in their local department store and tell themselves, “one day.”
What if you didn’t have to wait any longer, though? That is the exact philosophy behind the creators of this mattress. They wanted to create a mattress shopping experience without the stress and headache of trying to pay off a huge debt. For $5,000, you could make a down payment on a brand new car. There’s no reason you should have to pay that much for a mattress.
Today, we’re going to be giving you our professional Loom and Leaf mattress review. We’re going to take you on a behind the scenes tour behind the company, design, and the many benefits of a luxury foam mattress. At only a quarter of the price of a traditional memory foam mattress, these are not only a cheaper alternative, but also a far more affordable alternative.
About Loom and Leaf
If you’ve done a fair bit of mattress shopping already, then you’ve no doubt come across the Saatva mattress. They were one of the first companies to really embrace the bed-in-a-box business model. As a result, they were incredibly successful. Their original mattress was a hybrid innerspring and foam luxury mattress.
As their company grew, however, they wanted to broaden their product variety to appeal to a wider audience. The result of this is the Loom and Leaf, which is a luxury memory foam mattress. For those who prefer the firmer surface and reliable support of an all-foam mattress, this is a great option.
It provides the comfort and quality that are comparable to high-end brands such as Tempurpedic. It has two major advantages, however. The first is that it costs about $4,000 less. The second is that you get free white glove delivery service when you purchase this bed. You can’t go wrong benefits like that.
Loom and Leaf’s Creation
Loom and Leaf was created by three friends; Ron Rudzin, Ricky Joshi, and Kris Brower. Their guiding ideology is to create a company that excels in customer service, produces a quality product, and doesn’t rip their customers off. By taking out the middleman and comitting to selling their product online, they have successfully accomplished all three.
In fact, they currently stand as the largest online luxury mattress brand in the United States. They have 19 manufacturing partners and 145 different fulfillment centers throughout the country. They employ thousands of employees, and give a portion of their mattresses to those in need.

Now that you know a little bit about the creators, let’s get into our Loom and Leaf mattress review. We’ll start by going over some of the benefits of this mattress. Then, we’ll break it down layer-by-layer and describe the advantages that they each provide.
When you first lay down on this mattress, the first thing you’ll notice is the superior comfort. Within seconds of laying down, the surface of the mattress will conform to each and every curve of your body. You’ll feel like you’re perfectly cradled. Your spine will begin to straighten out and you may even feel a couple pops.
After completing the 120-night trial period for this mattress, you’re guaranteed to fall in love with it. The cloud-like comfort and strong underlying support create a sleeping experience that’s like no other. When you wake up in the mornings, you’ll feel refreshed, revived, and ready to take on the world.
That’s the advantage of sleeping on a high-quality mattress. It will make your 7-hour nights and make them feel like 10-hour nights. Your body will be able to properly heal and rest, and you’ll wake up happier than you have in a long time.
Don’t take it from us, though. Loom and Leaf gives you a 100% money-back, no hassle, 120-night trial period. If you don’t see the same results, then you can send it back for an immediate refund.
The Loom and Leaf mattress is made up of five separate layers. In contrast, most modern memory foam mattresses have only two or three layers. Each one of the Loom and Leaf’s five layers plays a purpose, and creates a truly unique feel. While mattresses like the TempurPedic have often been accused of being “too stiff,” the opposite is true of this mattress.
While many high-quality mattresses will feature three or four layers, the Loom and Leaf features a total of five different layers (including the cover). Keep in mind that the Loom and Leaf is not one of those mattresses where each of the layers do the same thing and are simply named differently to impress the customer.
Each of the layers on this mattress is designed to perform a specific task, so let’s take a look at each of them in turn. The upper layer consists of 100% organic cotton that’s quilted into a 5/8-inch layer of ultra-soft memory foam.
Underneath this lies 2 inches of conforming and cooling foam. Layer three is a the core of the mattress and consists os visco-elastic memory foam. The fourth layer down is a 2.5-inch layer of transition foam which helps to evenly spread your weight. Finally, the bottom layer is made up of 5.5 inches of high-density support foam.
Although you’ll likely have your mattress covered by a sheet, the outer cover of the Loom and Leaf is great. We recommend that you sleep on it without a sheet at least once to see how comfy it is. It’s made from organic New Zealand cotton and is combined with a gel foam that wicks away heat.
You’ll also notice the quilting and tufting pattern on the mattress surface. This serves two purposes. The first is to minimize motion transfer. The second is to make sure that cool air is always cycling underneath your body. With this mattress, you won’t have to worry about waking up sweaty and irritable in the middle of every night.
Cooling Spinal Gel Foam Layer
Loom and Leaf developed their patented Spinal-Zone Gel specifically for this mattress. It eliminated pressure points in your body and alleviates the muskoskeletal strains that are placed on your body. If you’ve ever woken up with a sore lower back, a crick in your neck, or had to pop your knees, then you haven’t been sleeping right.
This mattress takes the heaviest points of your body (your neck, shoulders, hips, and knees) and evenly distributes their weight across the mattress surface. The lightweight, ultra-adaptive foam and gel layer that makes up the upper 2 inches of this mattress is exactly what you need for a better night of sleep. It rises to meet the curved areas like your neck, knees, and lower back, and cradles the heavy areas.
Aside from the comfort, this cooling gel layer regulates your body temperature while you’re sleeping. It’s created from a special gel used by hospital burn units to help fire victims recover. If doctors trust it, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be using it. You’ll finally be able to stop waking up every few hours to flip to the cool side of the mattress.
5-Pound Visco-Elastic Memory Foam Layer
The third layer down is Loom and Leaf’s ultra-luxury memory foam. This is a medium-density foam that serves as the primary support layer. It has an ultra-reactive 5-pound stress weight that responds to even the slightest shifts and movements in your sleep. It provides deep contouring support for your entire body.
One of the other great advantages of this visco-elastic memory foam is that it doesn’t transfer motion. One of the common complaints about the Saatva mattress was that you could still feel your partner’s motions from the other side of the bed. This was due primarily to the hybrid design and the presence of an innerspring system.
Since the Loom and Leaf mattress is all-foam, every motion, weight, and bodily shift is absorbed by the mattress. You won’t have to worry about disturbing your partner every time that you wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom or grab a snack.
In between this 2.5-inch layer of visco-elastic foam and the high-density support base is a thin layer of transitional foam. This foam further aids in preventing motion transfer. It takes all of the weight from the surface of the mattress and evenly spreads it across the lower support layer.
The support base is fairly simple. It’s 5.5 inches of high-density foam core that serves to support all of the other layers and help the mattress keep its shape. This durable foam will ensure that the Loom and Leaf mattress lives up to its industry-leading 15-year warranty.
Unlike most memory foam mattresses which only come in one comfort level, the Loom and Leaf comes with two. When you’re purchasing the bed, you’ll be able to choose between “Firm” and “Relaxed Firm.” For this Loom and Leaf mattress review, we reviewed the Relaxed Firm comfort level. This is the level that 80% of customers choose.
However, if you’re heavier and require more support, then the Firm is a good choice to try.
We found the edge support to be great on this mattress. This is due mostly to the high-density layer of support foam on the bottom of the mattress. Even while you’re on the edge, your weight will be transferred evenly across the mattress surface.
This is great if you’re planning on sleeping with a partner who likes to push you to the edge every night. You’ll receive the same level of comfort and support on the far corners as you will in the direct center.
What Else to Look Out For
As we mentioned, the creators of Loom and Leaf are so confident in their product that they offer a full 15-year warranty on their mattress. This covers any defects that may have been caused in the factory. If your mattress begins to sag, lose shape, or feel uncomfortable, it will be swiftly replaced.
Overall, this is a great mattress, but there are a couple of caveats. We wouldn’t be giving you an honest Loom and Leaf mattress review if we didn’t mention some of the most common customer complaints.
A Pricey Option
Although the Loom and Leaf mattress is only a quarter of the price of in-store competitors, it’s still expensive by online standards. Similar online brands offer prices that are a couple of hundred dollars cheaper.
It’s worth noting, however, that none of these competing brands offer the free white-glove delivery service. They also don’t have the same stellar ratings for customer service fulfillment. In our opinion, paying $200 extra for excellent service and free delivery and set-up is worth it.
Some customers have complained that this mattress is “too firm.” Compared to most memory foam mattresses, the “Relaxed Firm” comfort level is actually about 20% softer. Some people do prefer a softer mattress, though. If that’s what you’re looking for, you should check out the original Saatva luxury mattress.

Despite the higher price point, the conclusive result of our Loom and Leaf mattress review is very positive. If you’re looking for an all-foam mattress that’s on the more luxurious side, then this is a great choice. Its unique five-layer design is unlike anything that you’ve ever slept on before and provides both superior support and comfort.
When you combine this with their reputation for excellent customer support and white-glove delivery service, it’s impossible to go wrong.
