Brentwood Home Oceano Mattress Review
Our Brentwood Home Oceano mattress review highlights the new memory foam and innersrping hybrid mattress in Brentwood Home’s premium mattress line. The Oceano is their luxury foam / coil hybrid model in their updated 2017 / 2018 mattress lineup which we have slept on and give our feedback in this review.
Brentwood Home has set out to provide a higher quality of mattresses with their new mattress line, which uses premium materials such as New Zealand wool, Tencel, premium gel memory foam, high quality springs, custom handles, and elegant tufting.
All of these features really set the new Brentwood Home mattresses, and especially the Oceano, above the vast majority of online “Bed in a Box” type of mattresses on the market today. In addition, all their products are hand made in their own manufacturing facility in Los Angeles.
Construction and Materials
The Oceano is a 14″ latex, microcoil, and foam hybrid mattress mattress. It is comprised of the following layers:
- 2″ Comfort Layer – This layer is 2″ of gel memory foam that is designed to provide contouring support and help ensure cooling during sleep as well as pressure relief and also help provide motion isolation.
- 2″ Support Layer – This layer is 2″ of 1353 (in a queen) individual microcoils. This layer helps provide responsive comfort and support for the body during sleep.
- 2″ Cooling Layer – This layer is made up of 2″ of airlux ventilated foam that provides ventilation and airflow and enables a cooler sleeping environment.
- 8″ Support Layer – This layer is 8″ of Quantum Edge Combi-Zone individually wrapped coils that provide support for the mattress and deep compression support for the body during sleep. Reinforced coils around the edge provide edge support for the mattress and the entire layer is zoned to provide support to the various regions of the body needing the most support.
The Oceano has a very nice stretch-knit exterior cover made of soft plant-based Tencel that is softer than silk and more breatheable than linen. The 4-way stretch cover allows you to get the full benefits of the memory foam comfort layer, and the light fabric sleeps cooler than cotton, polyester, or any other synthetic material.
The cover of the Oceano is exceptionally nice, as it is on the other Brentwood Home mattresses, but especially with their top-of-the-line hybrid model. The mattress has a soft Eurotop with tailored tweed sides, button-tufted upholstery, custom handles, and a very soft and luxurious Tencel cover as discussed above.
Firmness & Support
The Oceano is the premium gel memory foam and pocketed coil hybrid model in Brentwood Home’s mattress lineup. We rate it at a 6 out of 10 (10 being the firmest).
The Oceano feels a little on the softer side to me, as I am significantly heavier than Kaye, and I tend to press through the top comfort layers and feel more of the bouncier microsprings in the mattress.
In terms of support, the Brentwood Home Oceano mattress does a really good job of providing excellent support in all sleeping positions. As we are primarily side sleepers, we like mattresses that provide enough give in the top comfort layer to support our shoulders and hips, while also having the firmness if we switch to our stomachs and backs.
I felt good support in my shoulders and hips when sleeping on the Oceano mattress, although the top comfort layer and microcoils tended to make it a little softer feel for me than I usually like. The Oceano is soft enough to be comfortable but still supportive where I didn’t sink too far down in the mattress, causing hip or shoulder pain which some softer mattresses tend to do.
Kaye, who likes firmer mattresses usually, felt the Oceano was also very supportive as well, which is often something we as a couple disagree on when both sleeping on a bed.
The micro coil construction and gel memory foam layers really provide a high degree of bounce and responsiveness with the Oceano, and the nice thick 14″ design really supports heavier sleepers such as myself quite well.
Both Kaye and I really like this mattress quite a bit, in that it is so much more far removed from the majority of the beds we have tested to date here at Memory Foam Talk. As with all Brentwood Home mattresses, the premium materials and design really set the Oceano apart from most other mattresses we have tested.
The Oceano is a very comfortable mattress. The tufted soft Tencel cover provides a really comfortable sleeping surface, and the top comfort layer of gel memory foam combined with the layer of microcoils provides a very supple and comfortable top layer to the mattress.
The foam and micro coil spring design provides a high level of responsiveness and a degree of bounce to the mattress. This makes late night adult entertainment quite favorable 😉
Brentwood Home really sets themselves apart from the majority of “Bed-in-A-Box” mattresses by using such premium materials in their mattress such as the New Zealand Wool, Tencel, hand tufting, custom handles, and the multiple foam and coil layers in its construction.
The Oceano is priced at a premium compared to many other mattresses on the market that it competes with, but it really delivers. This is evident in the use of high end materials, quality construction, and the fact that the mattress (and the other ones in the new line-up) is manufactured by hand at their own manufacturing facility in Los Angeles.
One great thing about the Oceano is that we did not get the sticky sweaty feeling that some foam mattresses cause during the night. The Oceano sleeps quite cool due to the multiple layers of gel memory foam, micro coils, ventilated Airlux foam, and wool / Tencel top cover.
One big deal breaker for us with mattresses, and especially foam ones, is whether they sleep hot or cool – which as a couple, is a super important criteria. The hybrid design by nature helps keep the Oceano cool, as the innerspring coil layers do a great job at creating air flow throughout the mattress.
Sinkage & Motion Transfer
The Brentwood Home Oceano mattress does a decent job with sinkage and motion transfer, however due to the coil design there was a decent amount of both. As we always preach, sinkage (and motion transfer) is largely weight dependent.
The fact that I (Andrew) weight around 230lbs tends to have a rather large bearing on the degree of sinkage I experience when sitting and lying on a mattress. Kaye, who is half my weight, experiences much less, naturally.
There was an average amount of sinkage for me with my 230lb weight, as I compressed the micro coils and tended to bounce a bit on the mattress when adjusting positions. This was a factor when both sitting upright as well as lying on the mattress when sleeping.
Edge support wasn’t too bad, but again – with my heavier weight, I compressed through the top comfort layer rather significantly. Less so for Kaye, who weighs half what I do.
When I slept closer to the edge of the Oceano, I did not compress the edges much, however, which has something to do with the stiffer coils used near the edges which is part of the design of the Oceano. Often, due to the comfort layers compressing under my weight, I tend to “roll off” the edges of some mattresses with poor edge support.
As for motion transfer, the construction of the Oceano, with the foam and micro coil construction, caused less motion transfer between both Kaye and myself when sleeping and changing positions during the night, which was a pleasant surprise.
We did feel each other move around and get up during the night, as my heavier weight would move the mattress to a decent degree. This is more a function of the materials used and their high degree of response than any fault with the mattress per se.
Smell / Off-Gassing
The Brentwood Home Oceano gets high marks in this category for not having a noticeable smell upon opening the box.
Most foam mattresses experience a degree of off-gassing and odor from being compressed and packaged in plastic for shipping, but the Oceano differs from most in this regard by not having very much at all. High marks in this category.

While this is higher than most of the mattresses we have reviewed, you really get your money’s worth with the degree of quality and materials used in the construction of this bed.
The Brentwood Home Oceano mattress is an exceptional mattress and one of the best ones that we have slept on out of all the ones we have reviewed to date. Brentwood Home has done a great job with the Oceano as their top-of-the-line foam and coil hybrid mattress, and it shows from the high quality construction and materials used in this great bed.
The comfort and support provided by the mattress’ design is excellent, providing a nice comfortable layer on top with the support needed for both my heavier weight and Kaye’s lighter weight. The responsiveness and bounce provided by the micro coil design makes for a comfortable yet supportive night sleep, without too much motion transfer thanks to the use of memory foam layers between the coils.
The Oceano also sleeps rather cool due to the hybrid coil and foam design, and the soft Tencel cover with the layer of New Zealand wool really helps out with this as well.
We feel the Oceano is one of the best hybrid mattresses on the market today, and the 14″ high mattress with all the bells and whistles really sets it apart from the competition. It is very supportive for all sleeping styles, and also quite comfortable.
We hope that our Brentwood Home Oceano mattress review helps you out in your next mattress purchase decision! If you have any questions, feel free to let us know.
