Bed in a box

A bed in a box company just raised $150,000. That's big for a startup. But that won't stop you from getting your own no-frills bed at a fraction of the cost. Read on to see how one of the leading bed-in-a-box companies did it.So you’re on a hunt for the best mattress in a box. Welcome to our world. We’ve spent countless hours researching, talking about, and sleeping on leading online mattresses far and wide, answering questions from how to choose the right mattress type for you to how to clean it and what to put it on. We’ve even philosophized about Amazon’s best-selling mattress and accessorized our dream sleep setup. You can see the full results of our years-long obsession in our Guide to Good Sleep, but the ultimate conclusion of our collective efforts is this: There is no such thing as a “one size fits all” mattress.

Full disclosure: Most of the companies sent us their mattresses to review for free, but we did take price into account when contemplating whether or not we’d recommend a mattress-in-a-box to someone else. Our reviewers considered everything from delivery process to comfort level, and then we compiled our mattress reviews in one place.

What was the setup like? After my friend and I managed to get the mattress out of the box, I removed the plastic wrap carefully (making sure to not cut into the mattress) and then watched in awe at how quickly it expanded into its full shape. I noticed a slight chemical smell and decided to stay the night elsewhere. Full disclosure: this was more due to the fact that I still had one night left in my old apartment before I had to turn in the keys rather than the smell which faded fairly quickly.

How firm is the mattress? The Propel mattress is firm but also soft, with a layer of foam that has responsive contouring. But really, the benefit this mattress offers is its textile technologies that claim to create a better overall sleep experience by ensuring a sleep temperature of 88 degrees. I can’t quite confirm that this is happening…maybe it is? But I will say the bed is quite comfortable. The description of the mattress online sounds scientific and also a bit mystical, so I was intrigued to try it.How well did you sleep? It’s a little hard to write this, as I feel like I have been under a lot of stress lately and I’m not sleeping well. But I do love getting into bed and when I do sleep, it’s generally pretty great.

What was the setup like? I anticipated a much more tiresome process for setting up the mattress, but all I had to do was place the box on the floor, long side down, open it up, and shimmy the mattress out of the box. I cut open the plastic and in a matter of minutes, I had a bed! The instructions said it would be ready to go very shortly, and that it was.Would you recommend this mattress to a friend? If you are a fan of a plush mattress top, I would 100% recommend it. You get to sink into bed but get enough support that your body isn’t thrown out of whack. Also, the actual mattress is this really appealing heather gray, so it looks nice in between sheet changes. (Source: www.architecturaldigest.com)
