Saatva Loom & Leaf 12" Relaxed Firm Mattress Review

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

As you know, we had been on the hunt for the perfect eco-friendly King size memory foam mattress and platform bed made of solid wood that has either been sustainably harvested or that is made from repurposed wood. We ended up purchasing the Saatva Loom & Leaf 12" Relaxed Firm Mattress, and we have slept on it for four nights, and I wanted to share my thoughts with you.

First, you will note that I have not taken any pictures yet, and there is a simple reason for that– we are waiting for our platform bed frame to arrive (we ended up selecting The Bed from Thuma), and I just couldn't imagine posting a picture with the mattress sitting on the floor. We tried to sync the deliveries of the two, but it just wasn't possible.

If you are seeking an eco-friendly memory foam mattress, I can say that we are both quite happy with it. I tend to like softer mattresses than my husband, but somehow we are both very happy with the way that this mattress feels. It isn't too firm and yet it doesn't permit you to sink too much. It feels a bit like you are being cradled and supported simultaneously. There is no off-gassing, which I am quite sensitive to, and nothing in the least bit unpleasant to report.

Unlike many of the eco-mattresses, and bed-in-a-box variants– to which the Loom & Leaf does not truly belong– this mattress can actually be tested out at select Macy's locations. This was definitely an advantage that helped sway our decision to buy this mattress rather than one that we could not test in person.

As I mentioned in my initial post, we sought a mattress without a box spring that would be paired with a modern, low-profile platform bed. This is where our decision to purchase this mattress posed a bit if a challenge because this mattress is 12" thick. This would not present an aesthetic problem for conventional beds on a box spring and frame, but it does for a wide array of minimalist low-profile platform beds. Because of the thickness, it is too bulky for the vast majority of platforms with a slender mid-century modern profile, and therefore if you are opting for something like that, then you may want to reconsider and find a lower profile mattress. This meant that we couldn't get a gorgeous handmade solid wood platform from a local Los Angeles company, and instead had to find something that would have proportions befitting this mattress, and that is precisely why we ended up selecting The Bed by Thuma.

Saatva Loom & Leaf 12" Relaxed Firm Mattress is available in two levels of firmness: the Firm is quite firm, and intended for people who really prefer a very firm mattress, and the Relaxed Firm that has more give and will appeal to a far wider range of people. We clearly belong to the latter category, and that is why we purchased the Relaxed Firm mattress.
