Brentwood Home Oceano vs. Brentwood Home Cedar

Today we’ll be comparing two luxury hybrid models again, this time both coming from the same mattress retailer – Brentwood Home.

Brentwood Home sells high-quality mattresses, bedding and home essentials, all handcrafted at its manufacturing facility in Los Angeles/ The company focuses largely on sourcing the most natural materials for its products such as New Zealand wool and natural latex.

The models we’ll be comparing in today’s review, the Brentwood Home Oceano and Brentwood Home Cedar, are not an exception either.

Brentwood Home Oceano

Construction and Materials

The Brentwood Home Oceano is a 14″ thick premium hybrid mattress combining latex, foam and micro coils. It Is composed of the following layers:

  • 2″ Comfort Layer – This layer is 2″ of special gel memory foam designed to provide contouring support and motion isolation, ensure pressure relief, and reduce heat retaining.
  • 2″ Support Layer – This layer provides responsive comfort and support for the body during sleep, and it is made up of 2″ of 1353 (in a queen) individual micro coils.
  • 2″ Cooling Layer – This layer is 2″ of Airlux ventilated foam that allows the air to circulate freely through the mattress and creates a cooler and more comfortable 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. The entire layer is zoned to provide support to those regions of the body that need it most, and reinforced coils around the edge provide appropriate edge support for the mattress.

As for the exterior, the Oceano mattress has a beautifully designed cover that is stretch-knit and made of highly breathable, soft and smooth, plant-based Tencel. This 4-way stretch cover is skin-friendly and hygienic.

It keeps your carbon footprint minimal and allows you to experience the full benefits of the memory foam comfort layer. The soft Eurotop with tailored tweed sides, custom handles, and button-tufted upholstery add to the luxurious feel and appearance of this mattress.

Firmness and Support

The Oceano scores 6 out of 10 for firmness, with 10 being the firmest. Heavier sleepers may press through the top comfort layers and feel a little on the softer side to them and more of the bouncier micro springs in the mattress.

In terms of support, this mattress provides excellent support. It provides enough give in the top comfort layer to support shoulders and hips while having enough firmness to support your back and stomach, which makes it suitable for all sleeping positions.

The micro coil construction and gel memory foam layers provide a pretty high degree of bounce and responsiveness with the Oceano, and 14″ thick design provides a good support to heavier sleepers.

Comfort

The tufted soft Tencel cover of the Oceano makes a really comfortable sleeping surface, and the combination of the top comfort layer of gel memory foam and micro coil layer 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 which is ideal for late night couple’s amorous activities (sex! 😉 )

Sleeping Hot

This mattress does not retain heat due to its multiple layers of gel memory foam, micro coils, ventilated Airlux foam and Tencel top cover, so you won’t get the sticky sweaty feeling that some foam mattresses cause. The hybrid design of this mattress that allows the air to circulate freely through it  and will keep you cool and comfortable.

Sinkage and Motion Transfer

The Brentwood Home Oceano mattress does a great job with minimizing sinkage. However, due to its hybrid design, there is a decent amount of it, although this largely depends on the weight of the sleepers.

The Oceano also has a solid edge support due to its 8-inch Quantum Edge Combi-Zone individually wrapped coils, so you won’t feel like you’re going to roll off the mattress.

There is a small amount of motion transfer with this mattress when sleeping and changing positions during the night due to the foam and micro coil construction of the Oceano.

Smell/Off-Gassing

The Brentwood Home Oceano gets high marks in this category for not releasing any noticeable smell upon opening the box which many foam mattresses tend to have due to their plastic packages. Its hybrid nature also contributes to minimizing the amount of off-gassing.

Brentwood Home Cedar

Construction and Materials

The Brentwood Home Cedar is a 13″ latex and pocketed coil hybrid. It is a “green” mattress made up of all natural materials including natural latex, GOTS certified organic cotton fiber, organic coconut husks, New Zealand wool, and natural flax seed.

  • 2″ Latex Layer – This layer is 2″ of natural Dunlop latex that provides pressure relief, comfort and responsiveness to the mattress, and combines with the grooved latex layer beneath for support and cooling.
  • 2″ Latex Comfort Layer – This layer is 2″ of grooved Dunlop latex cut into 3 separate zones to provide comfort and support for the body and aid in ventilation and airflow for a cooler sleeping environment.
  • 8″ Support Layer – This layer is 8″ of individually wrapped coils which provide the core mattress support and deep compression support for the body during sleep. Reinforced coils in the lumbar region provide support for the lower back, while edge retention coils provide appropriate edge support.
  • 1″ Base Support Layer – This layer is 1″ of organic coconut husks which help with circulation and have anti-microbial properties.

The Cedar mattress has an organic hand–tufted cotton cover that is naturally pesticide free, eco-friendly, and quilted with natural fire-retardant silica sand.

It covers a layer of New Zealand wool that wicks away moisture, allows the circulation of air, and provides temperature regulation naturally via wool’s natural temperate regulating properties. In addition to this, the mattress has organic cotton tailored tweed sides, and custom handles.

Firmness and Support

The Cedar mattress like the Ocean comes in only one firmness option, which is medium firm and it scores 6-7 out of 10, with 10 being the firmest.

The micro coil construction and the latex in the top layers of this mattress provide more response and push back than foam mattresses and give you the feeling of “floating on top of” the mattress, combined with the bouncier feeling of the supportive pocketed coil springs.

With its 13″ design, the Cedar mattress provides an excellent support for sleepers of different weights in all sleeping positions. It has the firmness necessary for back and stomach sleeping and offers enough give in the top comfort layers to support shoulders and hips. It is a really supportive mattress and yet soft enough to be comfortable.

Comfort

The premium materials used in the construction of the Cedar mattress make it quite comfortable. The soft cover with the quilted layer of organic cotton and the latex and coil layers combine to provide a very comfortable sleeping surface and a nice degree of responsiveness and bounce.

Sleeping Hot

Like the other Brentwood Home mattress, The Cedar mattress does a good job at sleeping cool due to its specific construction.

You will not get the sticky sweaty feeling that some mattresses cause as the natural materials and micro coil system used in the construction of this mattress allow excellent airflow and prevent the build-up of heat.

Sinkage and Motion Transfer

There is a minimal degree of sinkage with this mattress and a decent amount of motion transfer due to its coil and latex design, but this again largely depends on the weight of the sleepers.

Edge support in this mattress is good too, as the edges do not compress when sitting or lying near them and there is no feeling of “rolling off” the edge. Its 13″ thick construction prevents the heavier sleepers like Andrew to sink to the foundation when sitting on the edge.

As for the motion transfer, the bouncy latex and coil construction of the Cedar causes some motion transfer when sleeping and changing positions during the night.

Smell / Off-Gassing

The Cedar mattress gets high marks in this category for not releasing any noticeable smell upon opening the box. This has to do with the natural materials included in its construction which do not contain chemicals or petroleum by-products that usually produce the smell.
