Brian and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary today. Not that we’re followers of anniversary gifts by year, but this year it coincidentally worked out on the modern list of linens.
We decided to upgrade to a king size bed. Because nothing says I love you like telling your spouse to give you some space when you’re sleeping. (We also thought with our two littles that it would give us some space to cuddle in the mornings without over-crowding.)
Brian heard about Tuft & Needle through a podcast, and mentioned it in our bed-search conversation. I was a bit leery of spending money on a mattress online that we wouldn’t be able to try out beforehand.
But, the more I thought about it, the more appealing it sounded. One fixed price. No negotiations, no stress about delivery fees and weird charges at the stores, and best of all, no pressure.
After reading all the fantastic reviews, and their no-hassle return policy, we decided to go ahead and order it the king size mattress. (And then we ordered a bed to go along with it.)
It arrived less than a week later, and we were impressed with the foam mattress and how compactly it fit into the box:
We opened it in the guest bedroom, where we had two twin boxsprings to use as support until our bed was delivered.
Customer service was excellent. When we opened it up, a small part of the mattress cover looked like it had been snagged. I sent them an email and they were quick to reply and sent us a new one.
This is the first foam mattress we’ve had. It was a little firmer than I imagined, but I prefer firm mattresses anyway. We’ve been sleeping on it for about three weeks now and I’m happy with our purchase.
We bought a set of Brooklinen Classic Core Set of Solid White sheets along with an extra set of regular pillowcases. I like the sheets a lot too. I have plans to make a quilt for the bed, like our previous one, and I need to make the time to get started.
Happy anniversary honey…now, go sleep on your side of the bed! 😉
