Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe Mattress Review
Our Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe mattress review takes a look at this new updated natural latex and microcoil hybrid mattress that Brentwood Home recently released.
The Cedar Natural Luxe is Brentwood Home’s all natural luxury hybrid mattress that was developed to meet the growing demand for all natural mattresses made up of environmentally friendly materials at an attractive price.
Brentwood Home is known for their high quality latex, memory foam, and hybrid coil mattresses, which use premium materials and design features such as Alpaca wool and Belgian knit, custom handles, and elegant tufting.
We have reviewed several of Brentwood Home’s past models, and always been a big fan of their quality products that are a great value for the money.
All of the premium materials and design elements really set Brentwood Home mattresses apart from the vast majority of “me-too” Bed-In-A-Box mattresses on the market today. In addition, all their products are hand made in their own manufacturing facility in Los Angeles.
Read on to see our experience sleeping on this new all-natural mattress from Brentwood Home! (Review updated)
Is the Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe Mattress Right for You?
Buy the Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe mattress if you like:
- Eco-friendly materials – The Cedar Natural Luxe mattress is a green mattress incorporating natural materials such as natural latex, coconut husks, organic cotton, and Alpaca Wool. It is one of the most natural mattresses you’ll find online, made without pesticides, toxins and harmful chemicals.
- Pressure relief – This mattress offers excellent pressure relief due to the zoned support in the latex layer.
- Comfort and bounce – The soft cover with the quilted layer of organic cotton and the wool, latex and coil layers combine to provide a very comfortable sleeping surface and a nice degree of responsiveness and bounce.
You might not like the Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe mattress if:
- You don’t like the feeling of sleeping on top of a mattress – The Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe mattress is a latex/coil hybrid which provides the feel of sleeping on top of a mattress rather than inside it, so, if you prefer mattresses with a softer feel that will hug and mold to your body, then this mattress may not be the right pick for you.
- You don’t like the bounce and responsiveness of hybrid mattresses – Being a latex/coil hybrid, the Cedar Natural Luxe has a lot more bounce than other memory foam/coil hybrids or all foam mattresses. If you don’t like bouncy mattresses that are likely to cause a little motion transfer, this mattress may not be the best choice for you.
Construction and Materials
The new Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe is an 11″ latex and pocketed coil hybrid mattress.
It is a “green” mattress that is made up of all natural materials including natural latex, GOTS certified organic cotton fiber without chemical adhesives, organic coconut husks and Alpaca wool.
This time we got the incredibly comfortable Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe mattress topper that we attached to the mattress and that added 3″ to the thickness of the mattress making it 14″ thick.
- 1″ Alpaca Wool Layer – This layer is 1″ of the incredibly soft Alpaca wool that is not only silky smooth and luxurious but also naturally hypoallergenic and flame resistant.
- 1.5″Articulated & Zoned GOLS Organic Certified Latex Layer – This layer is 1.5″ of GOLS organic certified Dunlop latex. It is computer designed and cut into 3 targeted zones that increase the surface area, allow greater heat dissipation and provide responsiveness and just the right amount of comfort and support to those areas of your body where it is needed most.
- 8″ Support Layer – This layer is 8″ of individually wrapped coil system which provides 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, and edge retention coils provide edge support as well.
- 0.5″ Base Support Layer – This layer is 0.5″ of organic coconut husks which helps with circulation and has anti-microbial properties. It is bonded with GOLS certified natural latex by hand-tufting and without the use of glue.
The Cedar Natural Luxe mattress has a very nice exterior cover made of organic cotton that is hand tufted and is naturally pesticide free, eco-friendly, and quilted with natural fire-retardant silica sand.
It covers a layer of Alpaca wool that wicks away moisture, allows for air circulation, and provides temperature regulation naturally via wool’s natural temperate regulating properties.
In addition, the mattress features eight hand-stitched and reinforced handles that allow you to easily move the mattress.
These handles are also designed to attach the optional Euro-designed topper to the mattress and hold it firmly in place with the help of the special buttons cut from imported coconut husks and finished by hand.
The mattress topper that we got is made of GOTS organic certified wool that wicks away moisture, allows greater airflow through the mattress and has natural temperature regulating properties that will allow you to sleep comfortably through every season, organic cotton batting, and 2″ of GOLS certified organic latex layer.
The 2″ latex layer is made of GOLS organic certified Dunlop latex and is totally free of synthetic latex blends. It adds to the overall comfort and luxuriousness of the mattress and is, like the mattress itself, wrapped into an organic cotton cover.
Firmness & Support
The Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe is a latex / innerspring coil hybrid model, and comes in a medium firmness option, which we rate at a 6 out of 10 (10 being the firmest).
As I am significantly heavier than Kaye, I tend to press through the top comfort layers on most mattresses and feel the support layers more often than not.
However, being that the Cedar Natural Luxe is made up of latex in the top layers, which provide more response and push back than foam mattresses, and with the latex mattress topper attached to it, I felt the typical feeling of “floating on top of” the mattress, combined with the bouncier feeling of the supportive pocketed coil springs in the mattress.
This is typical of latex mattress and latex hybrid coil mattresses in particular, which provide that feeling of “sleeping on top of” vs “sleeping in” the mattress (when compared to memory foam construction mattresses).
In terms of support, the Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe 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 layers 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 Cedar Natural Luxe mattress, especially with the incredibly comfortable mattress topper attached to it.
The soft topper combined with the wool and latex layers below did a great job of cradling our hips and shoulders and prevented the appearance of pressure points and any other kind of discomfort.
It was soft enough to be comfortable but still supportive where we didn’t sink too down in the mattress, causing hip or shoulder pain which some softer mattresses tend to do and which as stated, is what latex / coil hybrids are known for.
The micro coil construction and latex layer combined with the mattress topper really provide a high degree of bounce and responsiveness with the Cedar Natural Luxe, and the nice 11″ thick design really supports heavier sleepers such as myself.
The Cedar Natural Luxe is a very comfortable mattress, and the premium materials all lend themselves to accomplishing this.
The soft cover combined with the quilted layer of organic cotton and plush mattress topper provides a very comfortable sleeping surface, and the latex and coil layers below combine to give the Cedar Natural Luxe a comfortable top sleeping surface, with a good amount of responsiveness and bounce.
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.
The latex and pocketed 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 Alpaca wool, organic cotton, organic coconut husks, and the latex and pocketed coil layers in its construction.
For customers looking for an all natural mattress that uses premium materials at an affordable price, the Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe is a great mattress that meets all these requirements.
The Cedar Natural Luxe is priced at a premium compared to many other mattresses on the market but it really delivers with high end materials, quality construction, and the fact that the mattress is manufactured by hand at their own manufacturing facility in Los Angeles.
The Cedar Natural Luxe sleeps quite cool due to the use of latex, pocketed coil springs, and the layers of organic cotton and Alpaca wool.
We did not get the sticky sweaty feeling that some mattresses cause during the night, as the various materials used to keep the mattress cool do a good job at preventing heat buildup.
This is a result of the natural properties of latex and wool, combined with the air circulating properties that hybrid coil mattresses deliver.
The mattress slept quite cool even with the 3″ thick mattress topper attached to it and effectively wicked the heat and moisture away from us and kept us cool and comfortable throughout the whole night.
Sinkage & Motion Transfer
The Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe mattress does a good job with sinkage, however due to the coil and latex design there was a decent amount of motion transfer. 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 sinkage, naturally.
There was less sinkage for me with my weight compared to many mattresses we have tested. The layers of wool, latex and coils combined with the 3″ topper did a good job at preventing me from sinking down too far into the mattress, which is a good sign.
My weight (and our combined weight as a couple) on the coil and latex construction of the Cedar Natural Luxe caused us 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 was good even with my heavier weight, as I didn’t compress the mattress down as much as usual which is good, and even less so for Kaye, who weighs half what I do.
When I slept closer to the edge of the Cedar Natural Luxe, I did not get the sensation of “rolling off” the edge, due to the comfort layer compressing under my weight – which is a definite plus.
Due to the thickness of this mattress (11″ + 3″ of the mattress topper), I also did not sink to the foundation when sitting on the edge of the mattress which is another plus and attractive feature of this mattress.
As for motion transfer, the construction of the Cedar Natural Luxe, with the bouncy latex and coil construction, caused some motion transfer between both Kaye and myself when sleeping and changing positions during the night.
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 Cedar Natural Luxe gets high marks in this category for not having a noticeable smell upon opening the box.
This is one major benefits of an all natural mattress, which does not contain chemicals or petroleum by-products in foam and thus does not have the associate smell.
Brentwood Home provides above the standard amount of customer service you can expect in a “Bed In A Box” online mattress retailer, by having a generous 25 year warranty and 365 night sleep trial. This includes:
- 1 Year Sleep Trial
- 25 Year Warranty

The Cedar Natural Luxe is the premium natural mattress in Brentwood Home’s mattress lineup, coming in at $1499 for a Queen.
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.
You can buy the Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe mattress topper separately and it comes in at $499 for a Queen.
The Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe 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.
The all natural construction that is eco-friendly made up of natural latex, organic cotton, Alpaca wool, and individually wrapped steel springs is a great choice for those looking for an all natural mattress.
Brentwood Home has done a great job with the Cedar Natural Luxe as their top-of-the-line natural latex 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 latex and micro coil design makes for a comfortable yet supportive night sleep, and the mattress sleeps cool due to the inherent properties of latex, organic cotton, Alpaca wool, and the individually wrapped springs.
All in all, we feel the Cedar Natural Luxe is one of the best latex hybrid mattresses on the market today and one of our favorites. If you’re looking for an all natural mattress, and have the money to spend on one of the best, then we highly recommend the Brentwood Home Cedar Natural Luxe.
