Brentwood Home’s Cedar mattress is as eco-friendly as it gets when it comes to online mattresses. It’s filled with organic materials, including all natural latex layers designed with comfort, pressure relief and breathability in mind. What else should you know about it? Read on for my full review.

The Cedar mattress is made by Brentwood Home, a Los Angeles-based mattress and home essentials company that has been around (in some form) for more than 30 years. The people behind the brand started out making products for other companies but created Brentwood Home and started selling directly to consumers in 2012.
Their focus is on making products with healthy and ethically sourced materials. They make mattresses and bedding essentials like pillows, sheet, and quilts. They also have products for babies, kids, and pets, including nursing pillows and pet beds.

Latex mattresses are supportive but very responsive and can sometimes have a “bouncy” feel. This can be frustrating for couples who find themselves easily disturbed when one partner moves in bed.
Brentwood Home utilized customer feedback to come up with some ways to reduce motion transfer, including a specially designed and cut latex layers and isolated spring coils. From the video, you can see that despite the responsive foam, the motion transfer is pretty good.
The mattress is made with a medium firmness, that Brentwood Homes says is a “sweet spot” for most sleepers. Based on my experience, I do think that it is truly a medium firmness mattress and the latex is responsive but not too bouncy.
There are reinforced coils around the edge of the mattress that are there to help keep the sides of the mattress supportive, so you can sleep right to the edge and use as much surface area as you can.
From the video, you can see that the edge support is great. I could really feel the coils supporting me when I sat on the edge of the mattress.
The mattress comes with a 120-night sleep guarantee. Brentwood Home recommends you sleep on the mattress for at least 30 days. After that time, if you are not happy with it, someone will come to pick it up and you will receive a full refund.
The Cedar mattress also comes with a 25 year limited warranty. You should read the fine print for all details, but mattress warranties tend to cover issues with defective parts or workmanship issues.
In this specific warranty, the first 10 years of ownership, the original purchaser will be fully covered if anything happens (that is qualified under the Limited Warranty fine print). During years 11-25 of the warranty, Brentwood Home will replace the mattress at a prorated charge to the purchaser and it will be determined the year it needs to be replaced.
There are, of course, more details associated with this warranty so make sure you read them all to see what qualifies you in terms of both returns and warranties.
The all natural materials and thoughtful design really make this mattress stand out. I think Brentwood Home did a good job of taking feedback from customers and addressing the main pain points of natural latex mattresses and focused their design on comfort, pressure relief, and motion transfer.
For the price, I think Brentwood Home’s eco-friendly Cedar mattress is a good value. The organic materials used are high quality, which increases the durability and overall lifespan of the mattress (so you know you won’t need to replace it anytime soon).
The design – specifically the hybrid of coils and two all natural latex foam layers – is really unique and Brentwood Home does a good job of showing how nearly every piece of the mattress is designed to meet a specific need.
