Ethan Allen sells their own brand of hybrid and foam mattresses at their retail and online locations. At well over $1,000 for a queen, their prices are only competitive against high end name brands. They have multiple firmness options in their lineup and most customers have described their mattresses as comfortable. Some customers had issues with the durability of some of the mattresses.
It just may be time to try something new! Novosbed has been around for a while making memory foam mattresses comparable to some of the most popular out there. They make one mattress with soft and firm varieties and are still a bit of a secret outside the mattress industry. That said, they put out a great mid-line price with quality materials and plenty of price value that may just be what you need.

Everyone wants a mattress that will last forever, and when our mattress causes us back pain after only a few months, we feel terrible However, finding lasting comfort nowadays is a real challenge. With more products in the industry than ever and rife competition, companies are sacrificing quality to find profits. When it comes to these mattresses, some folks had issues with discomfort over a short period of time. Longevity issues aren't a guarantee, but make sure sure that you read up on the specifications to make sure your choice works for you.
Great customer satisfaction scores are what shoppers want to see. Mattress buyers give these mattresses better satisfaction scores than most other competitors, which should give you a good foundation to finding out if they will work for your preferences. Keep looking below to learn how this mattress will work for you!
Solid support throughout a mattress is essential to its feel and whether it helps alleviate back pain. These mattresses are good at supporting most sleepers. This means you can rest easy that it will help with keeping your back straight while you sleep.

Bowling Ball & Density Tests
Some online reviewers use the bowling ball test to measure firmness. These mattresses do well at keeping consistency across the mattress surface without many quality issues, which is is a good selling point of this brand.
Having a mattress that really lasts can mean thousands of dollars saved for you and your family. It's one more reason why longevity is so important for mattress buyers. That said, most brands are out for profits and quality is a secondary concern. Even in spite of that, there are still some great brands that build good products. These mattresses are very well rated when it comes to durability. Unless you are of a heavy build and use the mattress more than average, these mattresses should perform for you for 7 - 12 years.
Like many people, a back ache prompted me to buy a new mattress. After much research, I selected a bed offered by Ethan Allen and was willing to drive a long distance to purchase it. When the bed arrived at the local warehouse, I was told there would be approximately 7-10 days for delivery to my home. My back ache and sleep were worsening so I called the store and asked if there was any way to expedite the delivery; I didn't expect this special service but tried anyway. To my surprise, the store manager cut some red tape and had my bed delivered in two days. The bed is great, sleep is great, back ache gone. Thank you, Ethan Allen.View More Reviews
On 4/29/06, I ordered a mattress and box spring from Ethan Allen for $2,500. It was to last a lifetime. On 9/15/08, Ethan Allen replaced the set with the same item. Here it is, 1/2012, and the mattress sags so badly, I am forced to replace it again. What is my recourse with Ethan Allen for a partial rebate?
My husband and I purchased an Ethan Allen Bella Queen Mattress Set about one year ago. The disappointment is almost unbelievable! It is as though this is NOT the same bed we tested in the store. My husband, in particular, wanted this style of bed - not too much padding, but still enough padding to be comfortable. I actually wanted a big pillow top. However, I did try the bed in the store and thought it was comfortable. Once it was delivered, WOW! We were BOTH disappointed immensely. The mattress is the comfort and quality of a mattress set priced at $500 to $600. We have a very old Ethan Allen mattress (20+ years) and it never caved in, but had very little padding as they were made then. We have rooms of furniture bought from them at that same time, and recently bought a 2nd bedroom set and are happy with the furniture that we bought then and now.
Worst Mattresses Ever! My wife and I used to love Ethan Allen. They had awesome designs that we loved. We decided to fully furnish our new house from them. Overall, we were happy with the result except for some issues that varied between annoying (minor) to outright unacceptable (major).
Minor issues: 1) The surface of the corner tables in the main living room were damaged because of the lamps that we put on them. The lamps were from Ethan Allen as well and they were equipped with some form of pads at the bottom to avoid scratching the surface. That pad actually stuck to the surface and when lifting up the lamp, the paint was pulled out from the surface! Needless to say, it was an expensive piece. It happened to both corner tables. 2) The main dresser and bedside small ones we bought for the master bedroom looked great. Except that after a while, the drawers won't open and close properly. When we contacted EA, they told us it must be because of the weather conditions of where we live (hot and humid, although the A/C is running all the time).
Major issue: The memory foam mattresses we bought (qty. 2) were the worst mattresses we ever slept on in our lives. And it wasn't only us; any guest who slept over in the guest room gave the same feedback. They are just horrible. They cause back pain and neck pain. They bulge and form valleys and mountains! Upon calling them, they advised us to give them some time to get used to them! We tried. We never got used to them - $4,000 down the drain. Do not buy mattresses from Ethan Allen.
Don't buy your mattresses from them, they do not honor their warranty!!!
Ethan Allen's furniture designs are beautiful and of great quality. However, I am really disappointed in your service and will not return to furnish the rest of our home with your designs. Having spent a rather significant amount of money on furniture for our daughter's room, this past May, I am surprised that we are still waiting for her bed to arrive this October. The initial delivery was set for June. I took the day off of work to wait for the delivery at the set appointment time. An hour prior to delivery my husband was contacted that the bed arriving was damaged and a new one would need to be made but the rest of the furniture would be delivered. Since we had a delivery appointment for June and a delivery set, we made room for the new furniture. The new dresser, end tables and mirror were dropped off and our daughter's mattress was now on the floor. What was a one night situation, has now been 4 months. Today, you finally arrived to install her bed. My husband took the day off of work to meet the delivery. Too bad your team didn't bring the screws needed to install the headboard or the frame...REALLY? To even add more insult- your team said it was at the warehouse and would probably NOT make it back again today. We have taken two days off of work, had our daughter without a bed for 4 months and making it happen today was not even considered. So sorry Ethan Allen, we were inconveniencing you.
We have been buyers of Ethan for a long time. Our entire apartment in NYC was furtnished by Ethan Allan. Our home in PA is mostly Ethan Allen as well. our last experience with KOP store was to buy a mattress for our Ethan Allen bed. The mattress turned out to be not of good quality. There are visible depressions on the mattress where we sleep. We called the store and their "technician" came by and opined that the depressions are not deep enough for the mattress to be covered under warranty. I will not buy anything from Ethan Allen any more, their warranty is worthless.
In November, I was on the hunt for a good quality, nice looking, durable & comfortable sofa bed that could withstand the wrath of two young kids and a heavy husband when the wife snored too load. I went to many, many furniture stores throughout the bay area, including an initial visit here w/ Leda Lindsay. With all the research and browsing I did, I still ended up returning to Ethan Allen. I based it on the quality of what i was getting, along w/ the price (it was the last day of their sales event). I purchased the Bennett Queen Sleeper and air mattress w/ the Maxwell Nutmeg fabric. The quality of the sofa frame, mattress frame and fabric were evident. And Leda was very patient and answered many questions during both visits, even made herself available in-between other customers. I've had the sofa 6 months now. I'm very pleased w/ it and the performance of the fabric thus far. I would definitely recommend this sleeper sofa and fabric combination for anyone looking for a quality sofa bed w/ kids. Leda was a great help w/ my purchase decision.
We went in to check out mattresses. The entrance is pretty formal so I checked in with reception. She to me to feel free to look around and that the sales lady would be right with us. It's set up like a bunch of rooms. You walk from one complete room to another. The sales lady showed me several mattresses and they had a lot of literature on each one. She seemed as though she wasn't very knowledgable about the beds but was more than willing to get the answers that she was unsure of. Unthinking he was just new. The produces are nice but it takes a month to get a new mattress.

Horrible !! I'm Sorry for anyone who falls victim to these scammers . They sell used furniture as new . They tell you furniture Is new , But they sell you model of the show room floor . They sell used mattress . As new . If anyone has purchased a mattress from them and it is off white kind of yellow with a Malibu logo on it your mattress is used . Also the furniture they sell if partly defective or they by furniture from other manufactures show room floors that are used as sell as new the last thing I will say is this I witnessed them with my own eyes sell a couch and a mattress that somebody dropped off next to the store trash can to a customer that came in saying that they were in need of a couch and a mattress and then they had very little money and this is what they sold them. I refuse to deliver the couch and Mattress so how was fired two days later
Fantastic furniture store with high end products at a very reasonable price. The thing I like about Ethan Furniture is that it's not a huge chain like "Living Spaces" so you'll get much more personalized service. Employees are very helpful and can answer any questions you have on their furniture. Great assortment of couches, tables, bed frames and much more. I ordered a couch set, dining room table, bed frame and mattress from them. They took care of the delivery and the delivery guys were very professional and put together the furniture pieces perfectly. I love the couch and take naps regularly on it! If you're looking for a quality furniture, exceptional service and a "one-stop-shop" experience, look no further than Ethan Furniture!
My wife and I spent thousands of $$$ on our son's entire Ethan Allen bedroom set (Bed Frame, Headboard, Mattress, Night Table, Book Shelf Cabinet, Closet, and Desk w/ Shelves) from this location. Admittedly, that was several years ago but, considering the reason we bought it in the first place (name recognition) and what we actually got (poor quality), and the fact that I am continually reminded of the bad deal we got every time I look at it, try to fix the hardware (again and again), or see how easily the wood stains by anything put on it (it's painted white), I had to finally share my tale w/ the rest of those who spent a lot for subpar furniture. We certainly were misled by the brand name and gave up going back to the saleroom in trying to address our issues w/ the furniture.
Purchased this for our spare bedroom and our guests think it’s better than their bed at home.View More Reviews
Absolutely love it. The whole experience from delivery to set up was very easy. Probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in
We ordered the comfort + softening for our mattress and was really impressed by how quickly it arrived and once again how easy it was to get. No sales tactics, just good customer service, clear communication and high quality product. Thanks!
I have the Novosbed for 3 months and it feels and sleeps wonderfully. I never had a foam mattress before but I love my Novosbed and won't ever sleep on a spring mattress again.
Purchased a Novosbed in October, 2017 and couldn't be happier. It is so comfortable and the customer service is very friendly. I would definitely recommend a Novosbed!!
...wait, and give the bed a good 90-100 sleeps. WE ARE SO HAPPY with this BED! I'm really, really happy to support Albertan / Canadian business as well. It's very nice to contact customer support and talk to...once again, Canadians! Still, nothing is holding a candle to the comfort of our new Novosbed. Thanks guys.
I am enjoying my new mattress. And novosbed is a great company to deal with. I had no problems what so ever. Everything was on time and in Perfect shape when I received it. Thanks
Loved my first novos bed so much, bought one for my guest room. A more comfortable and value for money mattress cannot be had!
This mattress is unlike any other. It compels me to lay in it, even if I am wide awake. My sleep has improved immensely. Sex on this mattress is great too; I can really bring it from the hips without having to accommodate annoying spring-loaded squeaking and recoil. It has been a great improvement to my psychological and physiological health. Than...Read Moreks Novosbed. Read Less
you should mention that it is made in the U.S.; one out of two "ain't" bad.
We received our king size bed very quickly after ordering. It was easy to set up and had very little odour that dissipated within a few days. It is so very comfortable and we are loving it!
My husband and I both enjoy the mattress when typically we have different opinions on what is comfortable. This mattress is the perfect balance for both of us.
I no longer suffer from backache.
I love my novos bed! I first bought a twin and planned to buy a king if I liked it. It was good from the first night but both of my hips have been replaced and some times the medium was just a little too firm. I had called about making it softer. They were very pleasant and I found out they offer only one adjustment per customer so I held off in c...Read Morease I needed it on the king which will be used more. Long story short, the king needs to be just a little softer and it will be on its way in a day or two. How refreshing to find such a great customer service company! The matteress description is exactly what you get. Read all the reviews and you can't go wrong. The king size is really heavy. But it is a quality matteress...

Replaced a mattress that was about 8 years old and really not of good quality. It's been a few months now and this is exactly what we were looking for. It is on the firmer side for me, but I did get used to it and our muscle and joint pains from the previous mattress have completely disappeared.
Great bed so far,maybe a little less firm than I would like, but that is what sold me on the Novosbed , the option to increase the firmness of the mattress.
My body has never been so enveloped in comfort before! I truly value a good night's sleep and changing to a Novasbed has enhanced this for me. Many thanks for your wonderful product and excellent service. Most sincerely, Lorinne MacKenzie
This bed makes me sleep much warmer...we are still deciding if it is causing more pain or what is going on...
From the beginning our experience was not a pleasant one. After countless hours of research, talking to novosbed representatives, and reading reviews, my wife and I decided that a medium firmness would be a good choice for us because it was supposedly equivalent to the temperpedic cloud supreme that the novosbed representative suggested it would be. After a week passed our mattress was lost in transportation. We recieved it a week after our estimated delivery date. I know errors happen but it was just the beginning of our bad experience. Once they were able to locate it and deliver it, the box was hardly a box. After we got it into place and let it air out, we were inticipating it to be stiff from being new. We understood we would need time for our bodies to adjust but still after three weeks of misery, sore bodies and sleepless nights, it was still just as stiff as the day we got it. Once we were able to request a comfort plus kit, we asked for the softer topper. It did not help one bit! We had to put on one of our own 2'' foam toppers on top of that to make it tolerable. I'm 205lbs and it does not contour to the body like typical memory foam does. I'm counting down the days until we're able to take advantage of their return policy.
Transitions are ongoing in our household with adjustments...Novosbed Service has been great though-thanks!
will require adding the firm addition.
Comfortable and great service
We have heard all positive comments from our son about the excellent support & comfort.... granting him the best night's sleep each evening. He is thoroughly pleased and very satisfied with his Novusbed. We his parents are most appreciative. Thank you, Dianne & Ewart Locke.
After one year we still love it.
I love my bed!
Very happy with this mattress - as side sleepers we had trouble adjusting to our previous memory foam mattress. However, the Novosbed with the extra layer of foam worked out perfectly. No issues with heat either - it seems to absorb and dissipate body heat effectively.
It took a while to adjust to. I found it too soft for the first few weeks. The bed sleeps hot, meaning waking in a sweat quite often. It has helped my lower back and sciatic thankfully.
Extremely satisfied with both my purchase and the customer service that I received during every part of my purchase and trial.
We tired 2 other mattresses before keeping this one. We live the mattress. It’s very comfy and I wake up with no more back pain. Very happy with our purchase.
It is the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. There is no discomfort at all from pressure points after six months.
Great Product We have had a Novosbed firm mattress for over 6 months now and are still enjoying a well rested night sleep. Would strongly recommend this product not only for a high quality mattress but for their customer service. We ordered a Medium firmness at first realizing this was not quiet right and call customer service asking for customer + firming and within days received our adjustment to firm.
I'm so glad I chose to order from Novos. I wasn't sure how soft or firm I wanted my bed to be, so I bought the standard mattress. Turns out I needed something softer, so loved that the firmness adjustment (comfort+?) was free after a while. It's so comfy, and my only regret is that I didn't pick the softer mattress.
I find the bed very nice but it is a bit warm. I will want to try a different firmness soon.
Very happy with this bed. After years in a waterbed, I was surprised how easy it was to sleep well in our Novosbed. Glad we spent extra to get 2 twins to put on the king frame. Set up was manageable and the crack is not an issue.
We have now owned our King medium Novosbed for about a year, and we still love it. It is the perfect firmness for me and my husband, and it has helped alleviate my back pain. Highly recommended!
Good bed. Should have gotten a king size and a little softer though.
Love our bed! Firm with the firm topper is the way to go!
We have had the mattress for almost a year now and it has proven to be the best mattress we have ever owned. Do not hesitate to invest in a Novos mattress for yourself.
We are really liking the Novosbed. Awesome!
Bought our first mattress in 2017 and another one this year! Mattress is amazing and would highly recommend!
