Brentwood Home Review

Brentwood Home is a primarily online mattress company that sells latex, spring, and memory foam mattresses.  I tried the memory foam Sequoia mattress myself for this review, which is the higher-end mattress from their 2016 line.

Overall I really like the company Brentwood Home, and had a good experience on the mattress – though I had a few complaints as well (see how Brentwood Home compares HERE).  I think people looking for a high-end mattress at an affordable price will do well here.

Read on for my full Brentwood Home review.

You will love Brentwood Home if you…

  • Want a “bed-in-a-box” with options – Brentwood Home fits the mold of the new popular online-only company (great value, great return policy, etc) but has way more options, both in terms of type of mattress (memory foam, latex foam, spring) and firmness
  • Want great value – This is the second mattress I’ve reviewed from Brentwood Home, and I’m truly impressed by the quality of the mattresses vs the price.  One of the best mattress values out there in my opinion, even considering the other online products.
  • Want a strong USA brand – Brentwood Home has been designing and manufacturing mattresses in Los Angeles for quite a while.  They have a really great brand (that resonates with me at least) and have a proven track record of quality.Brentwood Home Mattress Review

Brentwood Home Review

You may not want Brentwood Home if you…

  • Don’t want options – part of the draw (for some) of the newer online-only companies is there is just one option that targets the average sleeper.  While Brentwood Home has this mattress in their wheelhouse, they also have a number of other options, so you need to know a little bit about what you want to make a decision.
  • Want very low budget – Brentwood Home is great value, but some readers want a fine mattress at a very low price point (~$400 or less).  If you want any piece of foam to get you through the night, Brentwood Home may be out of budget.

Feel and Firmness

This video shows the feel and firmness of the Sequoia mattress, the firmest (and most expensive) of the Brentwood Home memory foam options:

The mattress clearly has the memory foam feel, since the top layer is memory foam.  However it does bounce back a little quicker than a pure memory foam mattress due to the latex under the memory foam.  If you want a quicker reacting mattress (easier to move around, get out of bed) I would check out their latex mattress options.

This is an interesting feel, having both cushion and a firm quality.  I would put at an 7.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale.  I recommend the firmest option if you prefer a firm mattress, or are primarily a stomach sleeper.  They also have the Coronado (medium firm) and the Sierra (firm feel) in their memory foam line.

Motion Transfer Test

The mattress is high quality memory foam, so as expected it performs very well in the motion transfer test. The other firmness options in the memory foam line should perform similarly well.

Memory foam typically performs the best for motion isolation, so though I haven’t tried the latex or spring options from Brentwood Home, you can expect they perform slightly less well. However they still may perform at a high level, and may still be a great mattress for couples.

Brentwood Home Mattress Construction

Brentwood Home mattresses are manufactured in the Los Angeles factory.  Naturally each mattress in the line will vary based on the firmness and comfort layer material, so reference the Brentwood Home website for any manufacturing concerns (they are very transparent with construction).

Brentwood Home Mattress Construction

The Sequoia consists of:

  • Comfort layer: 2 inches of gel memory foam
  • Next layer: 2 inches of natural latex
  • Next layer: 2 inches of Airlux ventilated foam
  • Base layer: 6 inches of therapeutic base foam

In the photo above you can also see the wool yarn tufting, which I think is a great feature.  It has a nice aesthetic, but note that it runs throughout the whole mattress (holding it together) so that the layers are held together without chemical adhesives.

My Experience With Brentwood Home

I slept on this mattress for a little over a week, and overall had a good experience.  It definitely has the feel of a very high-end mattress, and I really enjoyed the small touches (handles, tufting, etc) in the design.

I’m a side-sleeper, so I found the Sequoia to be overall comfortable, but perhaps a little too firm for me.  I suspect that in this line the Coronado would be a better fit for me personally.  The support was really outstanding, and I’m glad to say the mattress didn’t sleep hot (even though I’m testing it as New York summer is starting).

This is the second mattress I have reviewed from Brentwood Home, and again they impressed in terms of brand and mattress quality.

Brentwood Home vs Tempurpedic

In my mind Brentwood Home is best known for their memory foam mattresses, and so naturally a Tempurpedic comparison always comes up.  In my mind the main differences are in quality, price, and construction.

Brentwood Home vs Tempurpedic


The higher-end mattresses from Brentwood Home (including the Sequoia I have here) definitely give the medium-range Tempurpedics a run for their money.  The sleep experience and feeling of high quality memory foam were both very similar for me.  The lower-priced Brentwood Home mattresses are still good quality (and great value), but I wouldn’t compare them directly to Tempur-pedic in terms of quality.


As I’ve said before, Tempurpedic makes some great mattresses, but they are very expensive.  Brentwood Home wins hands-down on price (and value).


Tempurpedic typically sticks with a full memory foam feel, while you will note that Brentwood Home included a layer of latex in their memory foam line.  This makes Brentwood Home a little more responsive than Tempurpedic.

Other things to note:

  • All mattresses have free shipping and a 120 night guarantee
  • They are made in Los Angeles, USA
  • Also offer other sleeping products, as well as items for kids and pets

Final Recommendation

I had another good experience with Brentwood Home, and again think they delivered on value. I haven’t tried their spring or latex mattresses, so I would be interested to hear if anyone purchases and has a good/bad experience (see all of our mattress reviews).

Brentwood Home is a little less recognized than a lot of mattresses I review (at least here on the East coast), but I think they are a stand-out company and definitely deserve a strong look during your mattress search.

  1. I can’t say whether its good to sleep on the Oceano or not. I received my mattress mid week (Jan 2018) – the “white glove” service said “they didn’t tell me we had to take your old one” (I paid for that – its $ 200+) and it did say that on the slip they wanted to sign, so perhaps they don’t look at the paperwork” They were helpful getting it unwrapped (well wrapped to compress it, but non trivial to unwrap as it is very heavy which made me think, good materials, coils, etc. But it has STUNK – worse than ANY mattress i have bought (have been here 17 years, have 4 bedrooms, on my 2nd mattresses in all rooms, this is 3rd for this bedroom where i sleep). For 2 days i ran the fan, opened 3 huge windows and closed the doors to keep it from stinking up the rest of the house. yesterday i stood the mattress up against the bed to try to help get more air around it. Its better after 3.5+ days – but if you get within 5 feet of it you can smell it badly. Makes me wonder about the “non-toxic” claim and about whether like so many small good mattress companies, they scale, get bigger, cut corners or cheapen materials themselves or they get bought. And of course have not been able to sleep in my bedroom. Fortunately have others – though my dog is not happy. Very disappointed the off gassing and smell is worse than any top mattress i have bought including tempurpedic and other top of the line mattresses that are all foam or hybrid spring/foam.

  2. Our experience with a Brentwood Home mattress was much like yours at least initially. However the second year saw problems and halfway through year number three it was nearly unusable. We received no response from Brentwood Home over the last 6 months and finally replaced it entirely, not even three years (purchase in mid January 2015) – we simply had it disposed of as I wouldn’t wish a night on the thing on anyone at this point. Two very average sized adults wore out a mattress in an unacceptable amount of time with no recourse or warranty. Finally led me to simply vent a bit online. Quite sad because it was everything you mention in your view at first… but that most certainly did not hold true over time, and that I’m afraid is the biggest test.

  3. I was looking for a mattress to go on a Leggett & Platt adjustable twin XL bed and found the Brentwood mattresses there. My guy is a cancer survivor with neuropathy, balance problems, and posture/breathing difficulties. He needs a bed that has rigid sides so that he doesn’t slide off the bed. The bed should also medium or medium firm so that there is good support. He is a side and back sleeper. Which mattresses do you suggest that we consider? We are in Anaheim Hills and J. is a USC patient so we know where they are located. Do you think they would let us try the mattresses. I’ve already made a mistake by purchasing a much too soft mattress on-line. Fortunately, I can get a refund.
