Construction and Materials
The Haven Boutique is a 14″ thick mattress made of 5 layers of various foams:
- Ice Fabric Cover and Buoyancy Foam – The top comfort layer of this mattress is made of gel that is sewn into the quilted surface and that wraps around the special Haven Buoyancy Foam. It provides freshness, softness and luxurious feel to the top and relieves pressure points.
- 1″ Cooling Layer – This layer is made of 1″ of the special custom blend Haven Cooling Buoyancy foam. It is highly breathable and helps regulate your body temperature to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter and comfortable all year round.
- Natural Fire Resistant Barrier – Below the top comfort layers of this mattress there is a 100% natural cotton barrier which wraps around the other foam layers below. It is fire resistant and it also improves breathability and aids in cooling.
- 2″ Gel-Infused Buoyancy Foam Layer – This layer is 2″ of custom blended buoyancy foam with gel infusion. It has a faster response to pressure than memory foam and offers better support for more pressure relief. It also sleeps quite cool due to gel infusion.
- 3″ Haven Memory Foam Layer – This layer is made of 3″ of special Haven memory foam that has greater thermal neutrality than traditional memory foam and thus provides more support than traditional memory foam, retains less heat and goes back into shape much quicker.
- 8″ Base Layer – This layer is made of 8″ of high density Haven foam that serves as the foundation for other foam layers above and provides greater stability and durability to the mattress.
The Haven Boutique mattress has a unique Ice fabric cover with gel sewn into the quilted surface and that wraps around the Haven Buoyancy foam. It is incredibly cool to he touch and provides freshness and soft and luxurious feel to this mattress.
Firmness and Support
This mattress also comes in only one firmness option and we rate it at a 5,5 out of 10 (10 being the firmest).
A nice 14″ thick design of this mattress worked perfectly with various responsive foam layers to support Andrew’s heavy weight and prevent him from sinking too much into the mattress and feel trapped in foam.
It is true that the Haven Boutique falls more on the softer side, but it did a great job in terms of support and provided us with excellent support in all sleeping positions.
A nice 14″ thickness of the Haven Boutique and various luxurious foams used in its construction make it super comfortable.
Its special foam layers will cradle and cushion your body for a perfect pressure relief, while it will also have enough firmness to keep your spine properly aligned and provide you with a comfortable, pain-free night’s sleep.
These foams are also responsive and will quickly respond to your body and movements and allow you to easily move around and get in and out of bed during the night.
The Haven Boutique mattress sleeps incredibly cool. Every single layer of this mattress features special cooling technologies designed to keep you cool and comfortable all night long.
They also work with the soft and breathable cover and fireproof cloth to allow greater airflow through the mattress and prevent the appearance of that sticky, sweaty feeling present with many mattresses made entirely of foam.
Sinkage and Motion Transfer
The Haven Boutique mattress does a good job of minimizing the amount of sinkage and motion transfer. It lifted Andrew’s heavy body weight and our combined weights sleeping as a couple with ease and distributed them evenly across the bed.
The edge support with this mattress is also good when compared to other mattresses.
As for motion transfer, there is no motion transfer with this mattress. A nice 14″ thickness of the Haven Boutique mattress and special foam layers used in its construction did a great job of eliminating motion transfer.
Smell / Off-Gassing
As for smell / off-gassing, the Haven Boutique gets excellent marks for not having too much of a noticeable smell upon opening the box.

The Haven Boutique mattress comes in at $1299 for a Queen, but this is a great price given the quality materials, the special technologies used in the construction of this mattress and all the luxuriousness and comfort that it provides.
Construction and Materials
The Novosbed mattress is an 11″ mattress made up of 3 layers of foam.
- 2″ Top Comfort Layer – This layer is 2″ of ultra-dense memory foam, designed to provide comfort and ensure cooling during sleep. It also is designed to provide support and relieve pressure points. The aerated foam allows free circulation of air through the mattress and keeps it cool.
- 2″ Support Layer – This layer is 2″ of additional ultra-dense memory foam, designed to provide support and responsiveness and regulate transitioning motion between the upper and lower layers.
- 7″ Support Layer – This layer is 7″ of base foam that provides support for the mattress as well as deep compression support for the body.
When adding the Comfort + top cover to it, the mattress gains another approximately 2″ of height.
The cover of the Novosbed mattress is made of polyester, silica, modacrylic, and Tencel, and it has a very nice soft textured pattern and feel to it. The zippered top of this cover allows adding the Comfort + top kit, and it is easy to be removed for cleaning purposes.
Firmness and Support
Unlike the Haven Boutique mattress that comes in only one firmness option, the Novosbed is offered in 3 firmness options. The one we reviewed is Medium firm, and it scores 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale, with 10 being the firmest.
It felt a little firm to Andrew who is significantly heavier than me, and who often tends to compress through the top comfort layers and feel more of the support layers beneath. However, after we zipped a complimentary Comfort + top kit to the mattress, which not only increased its height but its overall comfort as well, it wasn’t so firm anymore.
After sleeping on it for about 2 weeks, the mattress softened even more and completely adapted to our bodies becoming much more comfortable and supportive for Andrew’s 230lb weight and large 6’+ frame.
For me, the Novosbed was of perfect firmness. It provided the hug and contour of classic memory foam that I like so much without causing me to feel enveloped by a mattress.
In terms of support, we feel the Novosbed mattress does a really good job of providing excellent support in all sleeping positions. It provides enough give in the top comfort layers to support your hips and shoulders and enough firmness necessary if you switch to your back or stomach.
As I have already mentioned, the Novosbed may initially feel a rather firm and not as cushioned due to the slower-response memory foam in its construction. But, with time, it will become much more comfortable, and it will perfectly adapt and mold to your body without causing the feeling of being trapped in foam.
It is a comfortable mattress and supportive enough to support and distribute our weights evenly across the bed. It is especially good for heavier sleepers like my boyfriend, and it provides a nice degree of responsiveness needed when changing positions during the night without causing too much motion transfer.
Although you may feel a slight heat retention from the mattress, which is common for most all foam mattresses, the Novosbed does a really good job at keeping you cool throughout the night due to its dense foam layers. It may be an all foam mattress, but it will not cause the sticky, sweaty feeling typical for most memory foam mattresses.
Sinkage and Motion Transfer
When compared to other mattresses we have reviewed, this mattress does an excellent job of minimizing sinkage and motion transfer, although this is largely weight dependent.
Andrew sunk more than I did when sitting and lying on a mattress, but he did not reach the foundation.
The classic slow-response memory foam within this mattress isolates motion transfer and reduces it to the minimum thus allowing a sound and undisturbed sleep.
Edge support is also very good with this mattress, and better than in most other memory foam mattresses we have tested to date.
Smell / Off-Gassing
There was a minimal amount of off-gassing coming from the Novosbed mattress when we opened the package, which is to be expected given its all foam construction. But, it was nothing overpowering, and it dissipated during the night.

The Novosbed mattress is reasonably priced coming in at $999 for a Queen, which is a great price for a mattress of such a high quality and construction.
