Aireloom is a brand of California based E.S. Kluft & Company that is sold exclusively in mattress retailers across the US. Its claim to fame is their patented 'Aireloom lift' that increases the areas of low pressure when one is laying on the mattress. This gives the sense that the bed is cradling you. However, there are common complaints about the mattress's durability and some claim that it sags over time. Additionally, price is a potential issue with the brand as their prices are much higher than competitive brands.
Lifekind makes a variety of organic latex mattresses and were one of the pioneers in the organic mattress and bedding space in the 1990s. They developed latex mattresses that are well received by customers who can afford them. The only complaint is that they are on the firmer side, so if you are a side sleeper or someone who is prone to pressure points, these mattresses may not be for you.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Lifekind in this match up!

Customer reviews are sometimes hard to make sense of -- especially with all of the noise in the industry. These mattresses, unfortunately, don't score as well with customers. There are still those that love them, but many others have complaints. Read on below to get the details on the specifics.
Customers report that these mattresses are good at support. Though some folks doen't like the firmness of these mattresses, most customers describe these mattresses as having the right amount of support.
Edge support is important for those that like sitting on the side of the mattress or sleep near the side of the mattress at night. Customers report that these mattresses have decent edge support overall and they should support most customers comfortably.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
Bowling balls are useful to measure mattress firmness and support. These mattresses are generally well received at providing even support, which means they will do well with your hips and shoulders.
Sadly, these mattresses don't always get love from customers on durability. While some customers found them to be comfortable, others had comfort issues faster than average. Take a look at the specifications of the mattress, warranty, and return policies before buying if you are considering.
Customers feel comfortable with these mattresses overall and they get high ratings. However, some folks didn't have the same feeling. If one of these mattresses looks good to you, make sure to do some more research below to make sure it will work for your body.
These mattresses can be described as supportive for most, which means they cradle the body to align the spine for most sleepers. That said, a few customers have had complaints, so be sure that your pick aligns with your sleeping position and body type.
Overall, these mattresses provide a good amount of edge support, which means most don't experience a depression when sitting on the side of the mattress.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
In testing to see the even density and firmness of the mattress surface, these mattresses are well supported throughout the surface. However, some customers describe one-off support issues, so make sure it speaks to you before buying.
Mattress durability is essential for budget conscious mattress shoppers. However, with mattress brands aiming for higher profits, it is not always an easy attribute to find. Luckily, with data from customers and material craftsmanship, these mattresses are rated well for durability and should give sleepers over 5 years of comfort for most. But, some folks who are heavier may experience some degrading sooner.
BI have had my Rip Van Winkle Natural Dreams with Luxury Cashmere King bed for 12 years. Many could say that is a long life span however I would like to provide long term customer experience details. Extreme sagging from year 1. Called Sealy's where purchased and they came out and said natural use. Ridiculous. Offered me store credit of $1000 on a $5000 King Mattress.
2. This mattress is so darn heavy that it would take 3-4 strong adults to move it (I've moved 4 times in 12 years...everyone says it's the heaviest mattress to move)
3. After point 2 was made, can you imagine flipping and rotating this bed on your own? It takes 2 adults and still is ridiculous.
4. In addition to sagging it forms to your body so to speak so after 3 years it has looked like a body shape of a 200 lb woman and hump in the middle and a less dented body shape of a 160lb man. This causes lots of cumbersome rotating & flippingwhich is very difficult.
5. I've reached my life span of a $5000 (price paid on sale) mattress with a 25 year warranty after 12 years.
6. I'm currently mattress shopping and can buy a new Sealy for 1/3 of the price and not care if lasts 5-7 years.
Bought a aireloom mattress 6 months ago from sit and sleep. Worst mattress I have ever owned. Sags so bad that I wake up with a backache every morning. Sis and sleep well not do a thing about it
My husband and I have never been so cozy comfortable. We have the split king with adjustable base.
I immediately was relieved from hip pain that I had from a fairly new Temperpedic mattress.
The only complaint we have is: WE DON'T WANT TO GET OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING.
We purchased our Aireloom Chantille Ultra Plush Euro Top Eastern King mattress from Mancini's in Mountain View, CA., Nov. 2012. What had sold us on spending $8101.00 on a mattress was that when we tested it in the showroom we did not feel the movement of our partner. For us, who are light sleepers, this is a major deal. Our body was supported and it was very comfortable. A bit too high for us, so we exchanged the tall box spring for one that was several inches shorter.
We received that mattress and straight away there was a problem. Not Mancini's problem, we would need to contact an independent inspector (Premier Inspection Services,LTD.), at our expense, to analyze the mattress and make a recommendation. He did, and basically said that the problem was in our head.
Here it is 2016 and the mattress still does not live up to the mattress that we tested in the showroom. The shape is trapezoidal, and we feel every movement that our partner makes. Rolling over, change in position, sneezing and coughing are all felt by the other.
We feel gypped and misled. How could we have been so stupid. We could have purchased a cheaper mattress and changed it out when it no longer was comfortable.
We initially bought a tempurpedic based on many recommendations. 30 days later and my back was an absolute mess. I could hardly move and I was at the chiropractor 6 times in 30 days. The chemical smell was horrible and I was sweating my butt off. My wife could not bear to sleep in it. I even had my kids jump on it to try to 'break it in'.
So, we went back to the store and the sales person was very helpful in assisting with the problems that we were having. My wife stumbled across the Aireloom mattresses and suggested I try it out. I fell in love with the support and comfort immediately. The price kind of scared me initially, but with 30 days of hell behind me, I was up for anything. I like the fact that there are many 'real' materials in this mattress and it is not a cookie cutter mattress made out of chemicals. The delivered the mattress promptly and our first night was heaven. Support, cool and comfort. We noticed immediately that when the two of us were in the middle of the bed, there was considerable sag to the mattress. I was kind of perplexed by this until I was on the floor playing with our dog and my wife and kids were horsing around in the bed. I noticed that there was significant flex in the box spring support slats when they were rolling around on the bed. Being an amish bed frame, the box is supported by 3/4 inch oak slats that run from side to side. I made up support blocks positioned under the slats in the middle of the bed and the problem was rectified. This bed is as comfortable today as it was the day we bought it.
This is so interesting....A couple of years ago, my mom gave me her brand new, Aireloom Hybrid Bamboo mattress as she decided to purchased a different size (mine is a queen). I live in an older building, and there is a place in my bedroom floor where it's uneven, so when I started to feel like I had to roll uphill to turn over in bed, I figured it was the floor, not the mattress; however, my handyman used his balance to show me that the floor underneath my bed is indeed level, which was so baffling to me, as I feel as though I am sleeping in a ditch when I am on my side of the bed.
I have a solid platform bed, with storage drawers, so it can't be chalked up to an unsteady base or bed frame. I stumbled upon this site accidentally this evening, while researching mattresses, and am now 100% convinced that my mattress is to blame, and I am not crazy.
Not only that, but the mattress weighs about a million pounds, and sits inside the platform, so that changing the fitted sheet is akin to a strenuous gym workout. Just lifting the mattress is ridiculous. Once, while lifting the corner, I felt the fabric tear, on the underside of the mattress.
My mom kept telling me how expensive the mattress was, that it was a really good mattress. I can't lie; it's super cushy and comfortable, but the sagging is beyond annoying. I have propped it up under one side with books/magazines to even it out, but I can promise you I won't be spending my own money on an aireloom, when I am ready to replace this one.
When we tried this bed in the store my husband felt very comfortable as soon as he laid on it. I felt like it was a little firm, but thought I could get use to it. From the first night it has been a nightmare for both of us. We are exhausted! My back, shoulders, hips ache. It has gotten so bad after two weeks I have gone to the spare bedroom. My husband is not sleeping well and it feels like only after two weeks there is already a body impression on his side of the bed. He feels that the bed sleeps hot. I have not noticed that yet. Very disappointed overall.
Do not even think of buying an airloom bed. We bought one from Macys in Oceanside. It began to sag within about a month or two.
Made the mistake of waiting too long to call the company. You have 90 days. After that, they came out and agreed that it sagged , but since it wasn't over an inch and a half they would not take it back. Actually the bed sagged an inch and the box spring sagged another 1/2 inch which equals the 1 1/2 inches but since the box spring was involved they would not take it back. Macy's refused to help. We sold the bed less than a year later with over a $3000.00 loss.
My advice is do not get involved with Airloom.
I purchased an Aireloom Mattress. The store that I bought it from no longer carries Aireloom. The inspector from the independent inspection company determined that the mattress failed. Originally, Linda Menzel from Aireloom wanted me to spend about $1420 to ship the mattress to California from New Jersey and back. When I pointed out that they had a plant in PA, Ms. Menzel stated that it would cost $620 to ship the mattress to and from PA.
When I accepted their offer to ship the mattress to PA, Aireloom wanted me to sign an agreement not to disparage as well as waive any future legal rights. After questioning Ms. Menzel, she stated that even if the mattress were defective when it was returned to me, I could not sue Aireloom. By adding the requirement of not to disparage and to waive all future rights, they violated the terms of their warranty and thus defrauded me.
In my opinion, Aireloom is a terrible company to deal with because they do not honor their warranty. If they did this to me, do you think they will treat you any differently?
I bought an aireloom mattress from OC mattress in Costa Mesa CA. Was told when I bought this that there was no memory foam, but alas this was untrue. After purchase I noticed heat retention and complained to the store and manufacturer. Found out that it contained 7% memory foam. After several months have noticed sagging and 'holes.'' Paid lots of money and disappointed. Would not recommend.
If you're researching a new mattress please read the above reviews and DO NOT buy an Aireloom product. Like the others above have written within weeks my wife and I found our new mattress to be forming deep depressions. We called Aireloom and they sent an inspector and the results were that the 'holes' were within expected body depressions. That's the last Aireloom I'll ever buy. Absolute junk.
3 years ago my husband and I made the trek out to our local mattress retailer. We were buying two mattresses - one for personal use and the other for a duplex for our parents. Decided on two Sertas when at the last moment.....I spotted the Aireloom. I had to test it and I fell in love. It was the most comfortable bed I had ever tried! But alas, the honeymoon period ended and we were left with a mattress that had some serious sagging issues after only 3 years. Some might say that is a good life for a mattress but I have to point out the only two other mattresses we have purchased for personal use lasted at least 10 years each and with no sagging. We only replaced them because we wanted to try newer models. Aireloom - I wanted to love you! Love you for being handmade, being the cushiest bed on the showroom floor, for being the sexiest in looks and for being handmade in CA. Sorry but I can love you no more. Moving on to a new lover.
I wish I had ready reviews like these before spending over $3000 on our Aireloom in 2012. We expected this mattress to last 20-25 years. When we first got the mattress I couldn't have been more satisfied. It was firm, supportive and so good for my bad back recovering from surgery. Within a few months I noticed I was making a sag in the bed. I tried moving around in the bed more and that helped for a while but now my husband and I are so miserable sleeping in this bed that we can't wait to replace it. We have flipped it end to end but I'd rather return to an old fashioned innerspring mattress that I can flip over. It just makes sense that with more sleeping surface the mattress will last longer. I will for sure NEVER spend $3K on a mattress again.
I have had a real problem with sciatica over the last couple of years. While this mattress has not prevented it, better body pressure distribution seems to have really helped. I don’t wake up in the AM tired and feeling achey.
Macy's was a pleasure to work with throughout and the mattress has been very comfortable so far.
We had been looking for a new mattress for over 2 years, and finally landed on the Airloom Hybrid. Already on the first night, I noticed when I woke up in the middle of the night, my hip and shoulder pain I would typically feel before I rolled to the other side was gone! This mattress really takes the pressure off.
I took my time to find the right bed for my needs and really liked the Aireloom Hybrid. When I returned to buy it, my salesperson was tied up with another customer so that allowed me a good half hour to lie on the bed to make sure it was the one for me. Within 2 weeks of owning the mattress I noticed it wasn't springing back into shape. I've only owned it a month now and it has such deep depressions from my body (and I'm only 5' tall and 115 lbs!) that it feels almost as uncomfortable as my old mattress and is hurting my back. I've informed the salesperson I worked with that I'll be returning this one and hoping she can find something that will work as well as I hoped the Aireloom would. Highly disappointed.
Tried this bed 3 times at Macy’s laid on it , sales women was great she recommended this bed I looked at a few in mac
We tried 3 different mattresses in 3 months before picking this one. The others were either too firm or too soft, but this one was absolutely perfect. Plush, but with the right amount of support. Finally getting the best nights sleep. Waking up feeling rested, and not sore. If you are picky about your mattress, this is the one to try....you wont regret it.
Love this mattress, so comfortable, soft, best sleep in a long time.
Shopping for a new mattress had turned into a nightmare, between pop up stores and online beds in a box/bag I'd given up. Then I thought Macy's that were my parents would go. Our salesman was great listened to our needs and pointed us to several options, gave us the time we needed to decide. Delivery and set up was a breeze. Great mattress! ! Love it.
Very comfortable, conforms to body for a comfortable night sleep. I have spinal problems and this has been a big help. It lets me toss and turn with no problems. I tried many mattress' in the store, and this one worked. The salesman was wonderful it took us 2 hours and many jumping from mattress to mattress, his patience was above and beyond.
My purchase could not have been accomplished without the help of the OUTSTANDING Members of the Macy's team in San Francisco at Union Square. Their care and attention to my unique needs and wishes got this very important purchase accomplished. Lili Spagnoletta helped me this time and with my previous mattress over 15 years ago. For this purchase she got her Customer Service Manager Lori to help secure financing options. They Really Care!
We tested out this bed in the store and it was, by far, the most comfortable! We tried at least a dozen beds that were 5X the cost and this one was the best. The delivery was seamless and we can't wait to sleep on this tonight!
Took a couple of days to get use too, since I was sleeping on a mattress over 20 years old. Now I love it, and would definitely recommend it. Also had great delivery service on a very hot day!
It's firm and yet soft. Very comfortable! Great Buy!
It’s been exactly one year since purchase. Have called for questionablydefect internally. Mattress sags on one side causing excessive backache for me yet other side is firm. My weight 215 lbs. we purchased for a it being firm and king size. Compared to a foam inner coil mattress purchased in 2003, now 2019, this mattress is better built and low indentation of body points on bed. For the Airloom, I have to wake up completely to turn over. Yet when testing was done on Airloom, it was visually different between side and what measurement that was taken only involved a string pulled taught across mattress and a card with lines drawn to distinguish body indentation. There wasn’t any weighted pressure on points where indents were to measure any foam or spring collapse. I have now received letter from company I purchased from saying it meets standards under warranty. I’m doing a follow up for better practices to measure internal, not visual, of mattress. Over $4000 spent with less than 1 year of use. My queen foam/coil mattress after 16 years outperforms the Airloom and my back doesn’t hurt.
I have owned my Aireloom mattress for about 11 years. I called and emailed customer service and never received an answer. After 3 weeks of trying, I finally reached someone who was extremely rude. I weigh 110 pounds and the indentation of my body is so deep that I can't move at night. When I asked if they have any kind of warranty they said they can't guaranty anything, without asking what the problem is. I would not suggest purchasing this procuct
I really wanted to love my AIRLOOM CORONADO mattress. I wanted to support the local California business and own a handcrafted bed. But what happened is that I wasted $5000 and now have a giant piece of trash in my bedroom that I have to dispose of. After only 4 months, I noticed the mattress was starting to sag but I didn't despair because the mattress has a warranty. But this is just a scam because it took multiple phone calls and emails to get Airloom to send out a mattress inspector. This inspector makes all the movements of performing an inspection, taking measurements and photos. But, in the end, Airloom does nothing. Like other unfortunate customers, I will be returning to the mattress store to purchase something with a better reputation.
I switched from a Sleep Number to The Euro mattress and I only wish I had done it sooner. I haven't slept so good in years. I purchased the medium-firm and it is perfect. I am grateful to Lifekind and its excellent customer service. Thank you!View More Reviews
packaging damaged in shipping, so it sat in warehouse for a while. So far mattress seems OK
Purchased a Euro ten years ago. Beautiful mattress and shows no sign of wear or age. It is as wonderful now as when it arrived. Definitely is firm, with excellent support and stability. Those needing plushness may need to buy a mattress topper.
I've never slept better. Great feel.
My husband and I invested in the Lifekind Euro mattress in 2015. After almost 2 years, I am happy to report that this mattress is simply the best of all the conventional or natural mattresses that we have ever experienced. Thanks for being there, Lifekind!
I am sleeping more soundly on my new firm mattress. I love it!
I am so grateful that we got this mattress. I knew it was a risk to get it without seeing it or trying it first, but decided to go for it. We got the firm variety since I tend to prefer sleeping on firmer surfaces. It was way better than I expected it to be and I already had high hopes. It had absolutely no chemical odor, which is to be expected, but I was still very pleased to find this to be the case since most things you buy these days smell like chemicals. It also is ridiculously comfortable. I love it more than any bed I have ever had. Thanks Lifekind for making such a great bed.
So nice to sleep on a clean non-toxic mattress! And it's very comfortable as a bonus. Also love the fact that its environmentally friendly. The rubber trees are harvested sustainably and as I recently read in Mr. Bader's book, the animals who contribute wool are treated humanely. Kindness and compassion for the earth and fellow creatures who inhabit it provide us all with a healthy sustainable environment. Thank you Mr. Bader!
Over the years, I have bought four of these mattresses: two twin XLs, one Queen and one Cal King. Obviously, they are great. We like firm mattresses and everyone who as laid on our beds comments on how great they feel. I sold all but the Queen and these have excellent resale value. I would buy another but Full XL is not available despite being the most logical mattress size possible (a full mattress is the length of a regular twin, Full XL is the length of a Queen, but America is more fat than tall).
I bought this mattress in medium-firm a couple of months ago to upgrade my son from toddler to big bed. Customer service was great, Naomi was very helpful. The mattress feels amazing, so much so that i now fall asleep with my son in his bed. Instead of sneaking out after ten minutes to get my chores done, i sleep for hours until I wake up and wander groggily to my own not-so-comfortable-anymore bed. My son loves his bed and sleeps so well.
This is our 2nd Organic Rubber Latex Mattress. We bought a King for us 10 years ago and love it so much that we just bought another one for our kids. Most comfortable and mattress we've ever slept in, not to mention it's chemical & pesticide free. :-)
Slept on this mattress for over 7 yrs and still loving it! We bought the firm option because I had bad back problems form our old mattress. This one has amazing support although sometimes I wish half of it was softer... Overall I'm very pleased with it and would recommend to family.
Switched from a traditional mattress to this incredible organic product, which I got in FIRM, and I have never slept better in my life. I also love that I am supporting an US company. Keep doing what you are doing! As a loyal customer and huge fan for 15 years, I am satisfied with not only all the wonderful items I have purchased and enjoyed over the years, but am especially impressed with your outstanding customer service. Thank you, Lifekind! And thank you, Naomi! G.G.
It's been three years since I purchased my Lifekind bed and I still couldn't be happier with it! I absolutely love the rest and comfort it provides as well as the organic/cruelty free philosophy behind its creation. Truly one of the best purchases I've ever made. Thank you for such a high quality product. I've chosen to purchase another pillow from you and am confident I will be just as satisfied.
We purchased one of these in 2013 because I was pregnant at the time and sleeping with my 6'2" tall husband on my old queen sized mattress (15 plus years old) was not cutting it. After talking with Sylvia (who has since helped us with other purchases, including two Shastas for our toddler/guest room as well as an additional Euro for my parents -- they tried ours and were converted!) we purchased the firm option and we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our kingsized bed! It was fabulous to have during the ups and downs of pregnancy, and now that I'm no longer pregnant, we STILL love our bed. My husband no longer sleeps with his feet hanging over the edge and we don't sink into a pit in the center of the mattress like we did on our old one. It's so nice to wake up feeling relaxed, refreshed and healthy instead of stuffy, sore and tired.
Extreme satisfaction... to the point that I tell my bed how much I love it when I awaken in the morning. It's the most refreshing sleep I've ever experienced. Had I known there was a difference, I'd have made this investment long ago. I have recommended you repeatedly, handing out your catalogues to others interested in Lifekind products. Excellent quality and customer service. The products are in a class of their own. I researched most of the other organic mattress manufacturers, and there really was no comparison once I looked at all of the factors.
We purchased our mattress and wood slat foundation, together with our furniture, several years ago. Our bed is the BEST we've ever had and provides an amazing night's sleep. We wake up every day refreshed and alert. This has never been the case with beds we've owned in the past. The fact that our mattress and foundation was made at the only organic mattress eco-factory in North America is also extremely important to us. Finally, the assistance we received from our product specialist was invaluable. It is difficult to make such an important purchase without actually seeing the product, but the process was seamless thanks to our product specialist. I enjoy all our Lifekind products, including the dish towels, bath towels and washcloths. They are so soft and last forever. I've had friends comment on how pretty they are. Thanks, Lifekind. I'm definitely a lifelong customer!
LOVE the mattresses (two so far). They have really eased my back woes. I love that I am not breathing in toxic fumes as I sleep. I chose you because of your sincere commitment to quality from beginning to end of the entire manufacturing and delivery process.
Hands down, the most comfortable mattresses on the planet. The people at Lifekind went way above the call of duty helping me decide which mattress to purchase. They are professional, helpful, and patient.
I've had my mattress for a week now. It arrived earlier than I expected (Thanks!) It's been so nice not waking up inside a deflated air bed feeling like a human taco. Instead of having to pump it up before bedtime and during the night, I just sleep until morning now. What a concept. When I first realized that only an idiot sleeps this way, I went to my local natural bed store. The first time I went in there, they tried to sell me pillows and blankets and were really scattered in explaining my options for beds. I left my head spinning. I decided to give them one more chance, so a few days later I went back and the service was even worse. After researching different companies from a Google search, Lifekindï£¨ stood out. I'm very confident now that I'm actually sleeping on the mattress that I made the best choice. Thank you for being so kind and quick when I started emailing you questions during my research phase. Every single part of the process was smooth. And your personal thank you note was a classy touch and made me laugh. I'm not taking a good night's sleep for granted anymore. I'm the King of Dreamland!
We scoured the internet to find the perfect organic mattress and have looked into so many different companies. It was a tough decision to buy an expensive mattress without seeing it first and we are SO GLAD we decided on this one! Lifekind is an amazing company and the customer service is phenomenal. We have been sleeping so well and LOVE our new mattress.
We own three of these for our children. We bought our first one about 4 years ago and have been very happy with all of them. They are super comfortable to sleep on when we sleep with our children and I love the peace of mind that comes from knowing they are sleeping on mattresses free from from toxic chemicals! Well worth the price.
We have had our Euro now for about 6 months. We ordered a box spring and a bed frame as well. We are absolutely in love with this bed. I have never slept so well! We are organic in everything else, and finally took the plunge to an organic bed and couldn't be happier. The sales rep was very helpful choosing our bed and everything arrived well packed and clean.
This is the best bed I have ever owned. A few days ago I was faced with the option of spending the night in a hotel or driving for an hour and a half (with traffic it was about 2 hours), I drove home, knowing I would sleep well in my Lifekind bed : )
