IKEA, the low price furniture store also offers mattresses that you can pick up in store or have delivered. They offer a selection of foam, latex-blend, and spring mattresses for the price conscious shopper. Those looking for a deal for the materials used find their mattresses compelling for their lower prices, but there are many that describe durability and firmness issues with their mattresses that lead to discomfort or poor sleep.
Voila is aiming to disrupt the mattress-in-a-box market with its luxurious hybrid mattress that puts an emphasis in lots of comfort layers to melt away pressure points and also superior pocket coils. Overall, they have 11 layers to their bed, which is way different than most others in the mattress-in-a-box space. Do all those layers translate to better comfort? Take a look at the details to learn if this mattress is right for you!
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Voila in this match up!

If you are considering this brand, take a look below for more from customers Unfortunately, they get poor ratings from some customers. Some customers had positive things to say about their new mattress, but others didn't feel good about the comfort.
Having a supportive mattress is a make or break for stomach and back sleepers. Side sleepers also need deeper support and a responsive mattress for their hips and shoulders. For most reviewers, these mattresses provide a good amount of support. That said, some others didn't like the support so if you are heavier, make sure to take a harder look.
Most find these mattresses to provide good edge support. Some customers weren't entirely satisfied with the edge support.
Long lasting mattresses are wonderful, but not always simple to discover. These mattresses are not reviewed highly by customers when it comes to durability. That being said, some may provide comfort for years and years, while other mattresses may break down faster. If you are a heavier individual, read up on your options because you may be at a higher risk for durability issues from some mattresses.
It can be a difficult task understanding which mattresses get higher marks from customers versus others. Customers are very happy with these mattresses overall according to our analysis. Although this doesn't mean they will work for you, a great customer satisfaction score is a good starting point.
Mattress support is important for keeping your spine well aligned and sleeping well. Overall, these mattresses are above average in terms of supporting sleepers. This is important if you have back problems or need something that will keep the spine aligned properly. Most customers respond that these mattresses provide proper support.
Edge support is how much supportiveness there is along the edges of the mattress versus the middle section. These mattresses offer good edge support overall, but there are some folks that may experience more contouring along the edge.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
The bowling ball and density tests are good measures of mattress firmness. It is also great for figuring out if there is supportive evenness or if there are peaks and valleys. Overall, these mattresses should provide an even supportive feel.
Good durability when it comes to comfort is one of the best factors in selecting a new mattress. Though there might be some factors, like our bodies, that would mean that we would still want to a new mattress after 15 years, we would all be more comfortable if we knew our mattress would last that long anyway. These mattresses do well overall when it comes to durability. Most customers will find they last over 7 years, but some have reported not loving the overall feel. If you are a heavy person and worried about durability, take a look at some of the customer reviews before puchasing.

I also have had lower back issues for a few months, especially in the morning, and I think it is because my 8yo sleepmaker pillowtop mattress had 'hammocked'. I tried adding a memory foam mattress pad to extend its life, but that didnt really work - it just felt like being partly buried in a softer hammock.
The Hesseng mattress is very firm, as others have mentioned, but using the mattress pad (its also ikea - tussoy) on it I find it really comfortable and supportive. I havent tried it without the mattress pad, but I think it would be okay. After only two sleeps, my back definitely feels a bit better this morning
I chose the Hesseng because it has good quality materials, zoned pocket coils and no pillowtop. I didnt want a pillow top because they get sink holes, so I wanted to be able to replace the mattress pad rather than the whole mattress when the mattress pad fails.
I checked out lots of mattress shops but couldnt get a mattress of similar quality with these features anywhere near this price, plus I kept getting the hard sell to upgrade which is very annoying!
As someone else mentioned, it really did smell a bit like hay in the first day or two, in a nice way, but it doesnt smell at all now.
I am very happy with it so far and will try to remember to post an update once I have had it a while, as I found it difficult to find enough reviews to make my decision. Others have indicated that the Ikea mattresses dont last that long, and nowhere near their 25 year warranty. However, my expensive sleepmaker also only lasted 8 years and I hear the same of other beds, so even if this one lasts about the same amount of time before needing replacement, I will save money
I had bought firm Hesseng Pocket Sprung Mattress (Article Number 402.577.29) from Ikea in June this year, and ever since facing back issues. It's not only me, but my wife as well as her parents; everyone in my family is experiencing back pains. Even an employee from Ikea told me that she too faced the same back problem. Additionally, my friend who bought the same mattress too faced the same issue.
But Ikea is not ready to accept this. All they are saying is that the mattress can be swapped only once as per your comfort level. But what do I swap it with? This is apparently the best mattress in Ikea.
For the past one month, I am sleeping on a rug happily and I wake up without any pain. And my family is sleeping on the other bed. Overall, we have a $800 big junk lying on our bed :(
Does not feel anything like the ones in store although only had for one night hope it softens up a bit more I may have to buy a topper as well although the ones in store were very comftable with out topper just have to wait a few more days and see
Having had back issues for some time, I was convinced that it was our, not so old and expensive Sleepmaker mattress, which I was very disappointed in. The combined product information, price and good reviews for the Hesseng sounded like what I was after; a firm and natural mattress without all the nasty chemicals. I feel so supported by this mattress, it's lovely. I was concerned that my husband, as a side sleeper, would find it too hard, but this has not proved to be the case. Like a previous review, both of us experienced discomfort in adjusting to the new firmness for a couple of weeks. However, we have now had the mattress for a month and I can honestly say that we are both very happy with it and all discomfort has gone. I actually look forward to going to bed now. My husband does not need the topper either. A great mattress at a good price, only time will tell how long this will last. I would definitely recommend it for someone looking a for a firm mattress and without being ripped off.
Simply excellent quality at a good price. After my last terrible experince spending too much money on a horrendous Harvey Norman, King Beard, I cant recomend this highly enough. Agree with comments below. No smell and super coooomfotable.
After reading others' reviews here, I decided to get the firm Hesseng and also buy the Tromsdalen mattress pad in case the Hesseng was too firm. Upon delivery, I tried out the Hesseng without the mattress pad for a week. For the first few nights, I was a little achey after waking. Retrospectively, I think my spine was readjusting, having been used to a seriously sagging mattress that was well beyond its use-by-date. After those first few nights, I just loved climbing into bed on that Hesseng mattress. I ended up returning the Tromsdalen mattress pad unused - didn't need it. The other thing I LOVED about the Hesseng was that because it's all natural fibres, it doesn't have the toxic leach of most new mattresses. It didn't need any airing time, no smell at all. The only downsides I can see are that a) it's super heavy (52kg) which will make turning it a chore and even makes fitting sheets on it a little tricky and b) its one-sided so you can't flip it. Hopefully that doesn't have wear implications. Overall though, I'm very happy, sleeping extremely comfortably and highly recommend it.
I wouldn't recommend this mattress to anyone. My boyfriend and I bought it last year, and ever since I have suffered from a terrible back ache. (I have never had back problems and always had hard mattresses previously) It is the hardest mattress money can buy and even with a topper it doesn't make the slightest difference. The biggest waste of money.. : (
After 2 years of constantly reading mattress reviews, we bit the bullet and decided to go with the Ikea Hesseng. We figured that as it was half the cost of other brands like a similarly sized Sealy, if we didn't like it at least we weren't as much out of pocket. We bought the firm king sized mattress with the extra mattress topper and like another reviewer, we found it to be very firm at first but loved it anyway because we could move without disturbing each other. We have now had it for almost 2 months and have to say that I would buy another one in a heartbeat. It is still firm but does not cause any back or side pain, the topper can be easily swapped around, unlike other brands where they are attached and I like the fact that the materials are predominantly natural ones.
First we bought the firm Hesseng which was a bit too firm, and when you first lie on it I can guarantee it will be the firmest mattress you have ever slept on. In hindsight I wish we had persevered with it but after a week we decided that it was ridiculously hard and we swapped it for the Hesseng medium/firm, which was a very, very, VERY bad idea. The Hesseng medium/firm is not supportive whatsoever, it feels like an air bed with 1/3 of the air let out, moving around in the bed throws you off balance, the mattress digs into your back and hips. You can only swap mattresses once at IKEA so we are stuck with a £600 mattress that we can't sleep on. Avoid at all costs.
My husband and I bought the Hesseng (firm) a few months ago, after much research and shopping around. We wanted a reasonably firm mattress with sufficient padding, but preferred to avoid memory foam due to concerns about toxicity. The Hesseng is advertised as being comprised of natural materials.
Before buying this mattress, I was only getting a few hours sleep each night due to lower back pain. My sleep improved significantly after buying the Hesseng, but I found it was still a bit too firm. We did not want to swap the firm version for the medium firm, however, as we found the latter to be far less supportive. So, we ended up buying the Tromsdalen mattress pad to go on top. Fortunately, this product does not have memory foam either. Instead, it has a 4cm thick layer of natural latex. I'm also glad that the mattress pad is replaceable, since I've read a lot of complaints about mattresses which have the plush layer attached. Purchasers often complain that the top layer sinks and gets distorted and uncomfortable.
In any event, the mattress pad was a good solution for us, as it provided enough cushioning to adequately support our lower backs. Having said this, it's worth noting that my husband and I are both (predominantly) back sleepers and I don't think this particular mattress and topper combination would be soft enough for a side sleeper. Also, the topper did make the bed feel much warmer, but we were able to work around that by keeping the winter doona on but wearing summer PJs to bed.
To be honest, we were a bit reluctant to buy an IKEA mattress, but they said that if we scanned our IKEA Family card we would have 12 months to return the product if we didn't 'love' it. So far so good. We don't have any plans to return it yet.
We originally got the Hyllestad from Ikea and it smelt awful, chemicals etc due to the memory foam (I found out after some research) after 3 weeks with the window open night and day the smell still wasn't gone. Took it back and swapped it for the Hessing (ok so we spent another 300) boy it is worth it not to have the awful smell! It smells a tiny bit but more like a fabric smell, or like hay, it's cleaner and not chemical. Soo much happier now...
Hesseng medium firm was the one we looking for 6 months.Firm but soft at the same time,it keeps stable your body temperature.I can t feel my wife movements during the night because of the self springs.Latex keeps the body relaxing.Best price for value.thanks ikea!!!!
It was a good mattress for one year and then the whole side collapsed. The sleeper weighs 48 kilos so it was not a weight issue. I am hoping IKEA is faithful to the guarantee. I will update you as it unfolds.
I'd give them 0 stars if i could.. Ordered a crib and mattress, haven't received the mattress....It's for my new born; 1. I waited on the phone for hours to speak about a missing mattress and wrong parts 2. They still haven't answered, i think it's ridiculous to wait 2 hours to speak with someone 3. Wrong parts .. Most frustrating situation i have been in, never will i shop at ikea again
One star for ease of shopping in-store, the speed of the assembly techs, and the relative inexepensiveness of the items (relative to quality). Minus four stars for the after point-of-sale customer service, which has tainted our whole experience. During the last month since our purchase, I have spent over 5 1/2 hrs on hold/speaking with 5 or 6 different customer service reps at 888-888-4532. In defense of the humans, everyone was very nice, apologetic and deferential. I believe Ikea's customer service system needs an overhaul; at the very least, it needs way more staffing to reduce the hold times. Woe be unto you, shopper, should you ever need to speak with a live rep: it is a cyber no man's land. Thank goodness for earbuds and other tasks. We selected our items ($3000 worth) and chose to have Ikea deliver/assemble. This was the easy part ---except the delivery time was changed on us without notice, which I only found out about because I am a planner (plan for the worst, hope for the best) so I called to verify when they were coming. Now began the first of our many "on hold" odysseys. We were told the original delivery time was no longer correct. Did it become inconvenient for Ikea's outsourced delivery company? Not sure; the result was we, the customer, had to rearrange our schedule. Btw, assembly techs were excellent. Interspersed with the above occurrence was the fact that the mattress we were sold was no longer available. (While in the store shopping, we had made sure that it was because it seemed a little "iffy" even then. And besides- they sold us the darn thing!) Also, found out a chest was not available, but would be soon. A case number was created for me to apply for a credit to back to my card and schedule the chest delivery. By and by, the first scheduled delivery occurred and an item was damaged ---more time on the 888 number to arrange replacement item via a new case number. (I got a lot done around the house while on hold.) Replacement item and chest was scheduled/delivered/assembled a few days later (they combined delivery of the two items, which was convenient for all), but again, not at the originally appointed time. I suspect poor communication between Ikea and local delivery service they use. Or maybe it's just that no one is trained for excellent customer service anymore. We had had such a time with delivery/damage/no mattress, that the next customer service rep agreed to refund our $59 delivery fee and mail us a $100 gift card. We thought all would be well, finally. Then, after many days, I pulled up my credit card online and: no credit for mattress. To chase that down required three additional calls; two of these requried I be put on hold so the rep could call the store. I have just gotten off the phone, so I hope the credit will show up in "2-3 business days." Also, we received only a $30 gift card; an additional card for the balance is, supposedly, coming soon.
A few days ago I made a purchase at the IKEA store in Frisco, TX, USA. I drove to the store to purchase the Sultan Hultsvik (king size) bed, which retails at $749. Prior to checkout, I stumbled upon the same mattress in the "as-is" section at a discounted price (because it was an in-store display). The mattress was very clean, other than the words "as-is" written on the bottom of the mattress (which was acceptable). I decided it was a great deal so I purchased the discounted mattress instead of paying full retail. Since I only have a small car, I took the mattress over to home deliver, and paid an additional fee for it to be delivered to my home. While making the payment, I asked the employee (Chris) to please make sure they wrap plastic around the mattress to prevent it from becoming dirty during transport, and he assured me they would. The mattress arrived at my home with no plastic, and an additional large round dirt stain on the corner at the head of the mattress, and another stain on the "pillow" top of the mattress. The large stain had some sort of smell (i'm guessing its from whatever was on the floor of the truck during transport). I asked the delivery guys why there was no plastic cover and they replied, "we told them the customer asked for it to be wrapped in something so it doesn't get dirty," and they said IKEA told them it was "as-is." Having purchased nearly all of my furniture at IKEA, I am disgusted to say the least, at the service I received on this day. An "as-is" item doesn't give IKEA the right to damage the product even further and force the customer to take it. The delivery guys could have urinated all over the mattress and I would have been forced to accept the product. The clean product I purchased in the store is NOT the same product I received at home. I was unable to refuse the product because the document I signed stated IKEA wouldn't replace the product because it was "as-is", so I'm stuck with the dirty smelly mattress. I attempted to eliminate the smell and the dirty stain still exists. This is not how you treat your customers in ANY business and I would certainly expect more from a company such as this. If it cost extra to wrap the mattress in plastic, I would have gladly paid the price to prevent further damage to the product. After contacting customer service and the store, they refused to help me. IKEA should be a company of integrity and do the RIGHT THING for the customer. I will seek legal help for this!
I went in and bought a bed, mattress, box spring and Bos spring cover and paid for delivery and assembly. The day they were scheduled to deliver they were a no show with no call. I had to spend over an hour to get through only for them to tell me there was a discrepancy in my order, but they couldn't tell me what. I went all the way back to the store to get answers and they said it wasn't delivered because the BOX SPRING COVER was out of stock! I told them to please move forward with everything else. So, they rescheduled for the next day. I sat and waited for the 4 hour window and again, no one shows up. I called back into customer service and was told the drivers van broke down. Again, no call letting me know they weren't going to show up. I reschedule again for the third day, the day of my daughter's graduation so had to have a neighbor sit for the delivery. They finally show up and put the bed together but didn't have the mattress. The reason they gave us that they couldn't locate it in the warehouse! No special mattress just one of their main ones they sell all the time. The delivery people didn't tell my neighbor they didn't have the mattress just made it seem like everything was grand! Again call, hold for about an hour only for them to let me know they have to reschedule the mattress delivery. I finally ask to speak to a manager and they say they don't have a manager working for the next couple of days. Here it is over a week since I placed my order and I still don't have everything to make my order complete, for an order I was told that everything was in stock. Would have been better off paying a little more to a more professional furniture store with real customer service.
IKEA's customer service was so bad, I was waiting for 1 hour to finally someone answered my call. Deliver service was good for me, they delivered on time, nothing was damaged and no missing part. But the mattress I ordered from IKEA caused my neck and back pain. The return process was so painful. This is my first time shopping at IKEA, very likely the last time.
In regards to delivery, I had to have a king size mattress delivered, there is no other option this bed had to be delivered. A week and a half ago I ordered my mattress and king size bed. Today my bed showed up, no mattress. I have disassembled and donated my bed. I have no where to sleep. I call IKEA, they are after all the ones I paid, they arranged this delivery. I call IKEA, they tell me North American logistics has the mattress they just need to find it and they will call me. It is 3.5 hours later and nothing. I call the delivery company myself, they tell me they do not have the mattress. Why on earth was I not told earlier, why on earth deliver a bed frame knowing the mattress was not there. This is not a living room set missing the coffee table, and IKEA has not lifted one finger to resolve or help in this situation.
Simply awful in every aspect of service. Nearly all of the bad events listed by others here - website malfunction, terrible phone response time and frustrating in store experience - have also happened to us in the last week, so I won't repeat them. Suffice it to say, our first major purchase - bed, dressers, nightstands, mattress, etc - will be our last. As I write this, delivery for several of the larger items has not happened as scheduled and we've been on the phone for literally 4-5 hours trying to reschedule. Insults to injuries abound! We stayed home ALL DAY for them (they had a four hour window) and they didn't show up, didn't call as promised and then ABOVE ALL, someone, somewhere, reported that they attempted delivery - a flat out lie. Beware. Prepare to waste lots of precious time and feel frustration like few other retail experiences provide. Truly, in today's consumer driven world, it's a wonder how so many put up with this terribly managed product service and delivery model.
Read this before you decide to use their delivery service. IKEA failed my delivery twice. They never loaded my furniture to the delivery truck and never informed me proactively about the issue. For both times, I had to call customer service, average waiting time is 40 mins, to find out that my delivery is canceled. If you are reading below, my nightmares start on 4/24 4/22 Purchased sofa and mattress at Emeryville IKEA; delivery is arranged on 4/24 from 11am - 3pm 4/23 Received a text message asking to confirm Tuesday's delivery; happily responded YES. Received missed calls from North American Logistics, IKEA's delivery partner. Called back and was connected to the automated system which told me my order will be delivered from 11-3pm. 4/24 Started waiting at 11am. Received no email, text message, or call from 11am to 3pm. At 3pm called American Logistics. Got to the automated system which says the order is on schedule for delivery. Decided to talk to a customer representative, took 20 mins to speak with someone. Gave my order number and she said she will connect me with California team, they can then connect me with the driver. Got transferred, waited for another 5-10 mins, a female rep answered, I explained the situation, she asked for my order number, after I answered, I was immediately put on hold, waited for another 5-10 mins, then a guy picked up and said he can't help me, he only supports deliveries to Canada. He transferred me again to the US team. No one picked up and I was connected to voice mail. I then decided to call IKEA customer service. Waited 20 mins to connect to a rep. Took the rep a few mins to pull out the status. She explained that my order was never loaded to the truck. She told me it rarely happens but it does happen sometimes, maybe the product was damaged. She said she filled out a form for me, gave my info to the delivery team, they will get back to me about the delivery time. I asked her to make a note that they need to call me back ASAP as I just moved in and am waiting for the mattress. She said she made a note in her request; they will call back on the same day or the next day. I asked whether I can make a claim on the situation. She said yes. She said she made a note on my record and transferred me to the customer resolution team. I waited for 10 mins, no one picked up, I eventually hung up because I needed to get to a meeting. No one called me back on 4/24 4/25 Received an email in the morning indicating my order will be delivered 4/26 without the 4-hour timeframe indicated. At 7pm, my husband called customer services, trying to figure the delivery window. He waited for 1 hour and 20 mins before speaking with a representative. The rep told him it will be delivered from 11am to 3pm. He told my husband he is sorry about what happened. He advised us to talk with customer resolution after receiving the delivery. 4/26 Received text message at 9:05 am asking to confirm today's delivery from 9am to 1pm by responding YES or call to reschedule (what? You told me it's from 11-3 and now is 9-11 and you are telling me at 9:05???) Called, the system told me the wait is 41 mins; waited for 30 mins. Hung up because I had to go to a scheduled meeting. Meeting ended at 10:30; I decided to skip the rest of the scheduled events; replied the confirmation text message with a YES and rushed home. Got home at 11am. Waited till 1pm. IKEA never showed or called. Called customer service, waited for 40 mins before speaking with someone. Took her awhile to find out what happened. The result is she doesn't know, because she couldn't get a hold of the right people at Emeryville to find out what happened. As for compensation of my time lost and had to buy a air mattress before my real mattress arrived, she asked me to deal with the store. I've never been so disappointed as a consumer. Never. And when it happened with one of your favorite brand in the world, it can get your emotion down pretty badly. Please fix this IKEA.
As a repeat visitor I keep getting let down by your terrible customer service and cheap furniture. I would rather build a bed out of Levi's than ever buy another mattress from you guys. Meatballs get five stars cuz they are on point.
I have been here many times and never really had an issue to vent about until my experience yesterday. The restaurant is always clean and relatively fast, the store is clean and organized, was able to find a team member when needed near by and the cashiers are always quick and ready for their customers. I went to Ikea yesterday to buy a king mattress and frame. The employee put what I wanted in the system and told me that it would be ready downstairs when I was done shopping. AWESOME. We browsed a bit more and then went to check out. Forgetting my wallet in the car, MY BAD, I finally checked out. We, my husband and 3 children (3 month old, 2 year old, 8 year old), made out way to the pick up. Our order was in red, not picked yet. We waited a hour, after them reassuring us it will only take 15 minutes. I talked to 3 different employees to check on my order. People after me have come and gone. The employees told me it was being taken care of, when it clearly wasn't. I went to the returns to ask for a refund because I was truly done and at this point we wanted to just go home, and she politely went to check on my order again, and only then was my order picked and was getting ready to be pulled. 20 more minutes and my order was finally ready. There excuse was because they didn't have the proper employee to use the machine to get my order that was up high. Wouldn't have been nice if they would have told me that or let me know that my order will be a little longer than expected. Neither was it a busy day or a time of a day either, mid week, mid morning.
I have lived in many homes before. But I never had my own, so when my family and I finally obtained our own place, we were excited and decided to buy furniture. Hence, Ikea. We go and everything seemed fine... until we got home. I have never lived in a home with bed bugs. But when we set up the Ikea Kura bed for my daughters, they were constantly getting bit by something. The doctors thought it was hives or something in our detergent but only my two daughters who were sleeping on the bed seemed to be affected. After 3 long months of questioning why my kids were always itching, with no answers to be found I was pretty much at wits end. Then as I was tucking my daughter in one night, there it was a bed bug as big as a chocolate chip drop. I freaked and told my husband to inspect it, low and behold it was a bed bug. But how was it that we got bed bugs. Everything in the house was fine, it was a brand new mattress. I took it to google, "Emeryville Ikea" and there I found reviews of people also coming home with bed bugs. I will NEVER buy a bed from here again as much as I love Ikea. I'm sorry but this has got to change. If you know what's good for you, please I advise you to take precaution when purchasing furniture from here.
Today, I came to get the mattress . My mattress was at aisle 24 bin 34. I came and grab the mattress on that bin. I have double checked the bin and the brand of my mattress. But I was at the checkout I just figure out it wasn't the brand I want. And the price was double . I asked one of the assistance, he told me this have two location. My mattress was moved to the front of aisle 24. It was wasting my time that I have to return the paid mattress and get in line to checkout other one. Please!!!!!! If you have moved your item please put a note or change its location on the tag. The mattress was heavy and I was just alone today. !!!!!
Bought a mattress in the Emeryville ikea last week and after the first night I noticed a bite on my leg, 2 nights later i had 17 bites, i striped the mattess and found a BED BUG on my mattress, I had no bites before i got the mattress. after 2 hours on hold to customer service they said they would give me a gift card for the cost of the mattress. they said i had to talk to there insurance company if i wanted to get them to pay for extermination,. I asked them to pick it up but they refused, I have no mode of transport and now i have nowhere to sleep, thanks IKEA, my skin is crawling at the thought of my room Ikea=BED BUGS
We went here to buy pillow top. After a long way walking around we finally got mattresses and pillows. Disappointed, after pick out the pillow top that we want, the girl who works there said if we buy it, can't return. Damn it is $300 bucks plus tax and what if it is not good for our bed then what we gonna do with it. Definitely never come to Ikea buy mattresses or pillow top. And the service is not good.
Unfortunately, I had the worst consumer experience of my life at IKEA. It's still a pretty sore subject for me, but I think potential shoppers need to know this. 13 months ago I bought a bed, (Sultan Flokenes) with frame and slats, at IKEA. Less than 2 months later the bed started to sag in the middle. I checked the frame and how I put it together, and it was built fine. I used to work as a builder, so I had no problem solidly putting together a bed frame. Here is the painful part. I called IKEA to talk to them about this sagging mattress problem, and it was impossible to get anyone from IKEA Emmeryville on the phone. I reached a call center. They told me, "go ahead and take the mattress in and they will take a look at it. We can't really say anything unless we look at it first." "Bring it in???" I said. "It's a mattress not a lamp. I can't just throw it in my back seat and drive it over. This is a very difficult situation." He replied coldly and sternly, "Sorry sir, but that is all we can do. We can look at it to determine if it is defective. If so, we can talk about a replacement." "Is there anyone from IKEA who can come and look at it?" I asked. "No. Sorry sir. You have to take it in." He answered. "May I please have a phone number for someone at the store in Emmeryville?" I requested. He took my phone number and several days later someone from IKEA Emmeryville called me and pretty much told me the same thing. That I had to bring it in, and they would "look at it" to determine if it was defective. No one could come look at it in my apartment. (to their credit, there was a manager there who was very kind, but he was stuck within their rigid, unhelpful customer service policies) So... I got a friend, rented a truck, and took the mattress in. They gave me a brand new replacement, the same mattress (Sultan Flokenes) and I brought it home. I was happy Two weeks later it started to sag. Right in the middle. Back pain inducing sag. Horrible. I was so upset I didn't even want to call IKEA. I just wanted to sell the mattress and get the whole thing over with. Leave IKEA behind completely. But then again, I did not want to sell a lousy mattress to someone else because that is not nice either. I slept on the lame mattress for several months. Then... Around a month ago, in a moment of strength, I called IKEA (I still had the number and extensions of some managers) and left a manager a long message letting him know what was happening. I told him to please be mindful when replying. I asked him to please not call me and ask me to "bring the mattress in." I asked him to please talk to top level management and carefully weigh his response before returning my call. I told him this was the worst consumer experience of my life. I told him I wanted a refund. He called me back 5 days later and told me they would refund my money if I brought the mattress in. I took it in. They gave me a cash refund. I doubt I will ever walk into IKEA again. It was so insensitive to ask me to "just bring it in and we'll look at it." A mattress!! For a lamp or a trash can or a dish rack that would be fine. But for a mattress?? I drive a compact car and live on the 3rd floor of an apartment building! Come up with other options! Help me out a little! But they stuck it to me. 2 failed mattresses. The Sultan Flokenes. Don't buy it. IKEA? Beware. The worst customer service I have ever experienced. Horrible horrible experience.
On July 4th, 2016, I purchased a foam mattress from IKEA Emeryville. On November 19th, I found the mattress has lots of mold spots on the back side. The old mattress that I have been used for more than ten years. I never see any mold situation. This one just four and half months! So I tried to call customer service. But I was waiting for 45 minutes still not get though the phone. I just went to IKEA in Emeryville. The lady who works in return center said she cannot do anything, cannot return or exchange it for me. I said I want to talk to a supervisor,Later A lady came to me her name is FEUPA. I show her the picture of moldy mattress and receipt . She said no problem just go ahead bring the foam mattress in, she will take care of it. I went back home and picked up the mattress back to IKEA, I waited in return line for 2 hours, she checked the mattress and said it looked different from the picture,it is not mold, it's stain! She can't do anything, And she called a duty manager came out. He said yes it is mold but the warranty is expired! They gave me different excuses!! I argued if FEUPA told me at the beginning. I don't have to stay there waste 4-5 hours for nothing. She made promise, later she went back on what she had said. It is unprofessional!! If she didn't make any promise. I don't have to waste half day. Terrible Customer service!!! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY, I will NOT go IKEA again!!!
Worst delivery service ever, they threw the new mattress upside down and left the wrapping on, onto the brand new bed frame (fjell the hardest to assemble piece we've ever put together). The delivery people would rude and extremely 'rough'.
In desperation, I am utilizing public media. Online orders made at Ikea.com are a BAD idea. I purchased a mattress and bed-frame, supposed to be delivered on Friday, August 21. Instead, I received the bed-frame, an apology from the moving company that Ikea had not provided the mattress. Judging from the extraordinarily high call volume, all circuits being busy, and a non-functioning email contact -- supposed to be up and running by August 29th, but still not -- I would say I am not the only patron with a problem. I have been on hold twice for over two hours. Ikea, this is terrible. I will never order from this company again and would never recommend to anyone else that they do so.
TL:DR: ikea is kewlz to browse and for swedish meatballs but not furniture. Don't get me wrong, I like browsing through Ikea. I love seeing their displays because it allows me to become inspired and decorate my house to my own creativity. Buuuuut...the quality here..there is no quality. Ikea is nice for those who plan to constantly replace their furniture but if you want something durable and is built to last, I would not, I REPEAT, not buy your shizzz here. I've purchased a bed frame and a mattress here (no, not their cheap roll out mattresses but the higher priced ones that they offer) and its been barely two years and my mattress is dipping. It's uncomfortable as hell to sleep on at this point because it is so lumpy. The mattress frame is a little better but the base boards were so annoying initially because they constantly fell under and my bed would collapse, I eventually just placed actual large pieces of wood under to keep everything in place. I've purchased a lot of furniture and random things for the house over the years and some items are more long lasting than others but honestly I would recommend taking your money and going elsewhere. You pay a little more, or less..I guess it depends where you go and if you haggle, but most times you WILL find better grade furniture. To be honest, the prices at Ikea are not even that cheap. Like I bought a leather couch here and it cost me well over $1000 and the center started to concave not even a year into my purchase. Annnnnd another thing, have you ever seen those videos of when they cut Ikea furniture in half?? Everything is like cardboard, no wonder it breaks so quickly!! And another-nother thing, everything is so complicated to build...
I like shopping in the store - definitely have had a range of experiences with their products from feeling like I got a great deal on something that lasted to a few items that did not wear well, but over all good experiences - however I am giving them one star for my latest saga with them and please Do NOT BUY A MATTRESS HERE!!!! Or anything you have to have delivered!!!! I purchased a mattress after carefully trying out the mattresses in the store AND ASKING LOTS OF QUESTIONS- the one I received felt nothing like the one in the store. Confused I went back and asked why mine felt so much harder - I was told "of course the ones in the store are softer - lots of people lay on them" Do you think they could have mentioned that when I was there for over 45 minutes the first time? Then I exchange it - but if I had them pick up the first one, wait for the return, then order the second one with the credit I would have been without a bed for about a few weeks. So I asked - can I purchase a new mattress and have you credit the old one to my credit card when it comes back - THEY SAID YES - then a manager reviewed it and made it a store credit for the first one since it was "used"( ie I took the plastic off of it) without contacting me to give me the option to exchange - so I am stuck with an IKEA gift card - Grrrrr. Never again! Horrible customer service!!!! Miss informed. Management that does nothing to help. I will never get anything delivered from here again. Just to add to my frustration they have their hours on their outgoing message do not include a time zone - I do not know what time zone they are in - but they said they were closed at 10am pacific time on a Wednesday- go figure and their email link to the contact information for problems with online sales is broken (I have reported it to them twice) They really need someone to fix their systems and their customer service.
Absolutely TERRIBLE SERVICE! Delievery was scheduled labor day! Ruined my holiday waiting for it, and it never showed. Then 3 scheduled NO SHOWS since then. Finally today, weeks later, they show up at a time I specified NOT TO SHOW up! Then they have the balls to say I need to go back to the store to settle this?!?! This is my first apartment, this was my first furniture buying experience, and I am offended at how poorly they have treated me and how unwilling they are to accomodate their own mistakes. Money lost calling out of work, I have been sleeping on a blowup mattress waiting for my bed! My apartment is a mess because I have nothing to put my stuff in! DO NOT GO TO IKEA IF YOU NEED TO RELY ON DELIEVERY!
This Ikea has BY FAR the worst customer service and without a doubt should be rated below average. I have never experienced anything like this before: I went to Ikea Emeryville, CA to purchase a queen malm (brown veneer ash) bedframe, lonset slats, mattress and mattress pad. I was helped by an Ikea worker, because I couldn't put everything on the cart by myself since it slid around when trying to put heavy objects on it. I proceeded through checkout, and got my items delivered that day. I put together my bed frame first, which I then realized was actually a full bed frame. Whoever helped me at the store pick the bed frame off the shelf, the cashier, and the person who did my delivery all looked at either the item or the receipt of my purchase and no one pointed out that I was buying a full bed frame. So I called to get the full bed frame picked up for return and delivery of a queen bed frame, and also admitted it was my fault for not checking my receipt closely. Even though, the store worker picked out the wrong size bed frame for me, the customer service person said it would still cost $50 (half of the delivery fee) to get my bed frame, which is ridiculous, but I agreed. I now have been playing phone tag with both two customer service reps (extensions 1458 and 1378). They asked me to send them an authorization form with my credit card information because they cannot accept payments over the phone. I've emailed that form a dozen times and left at least six messages on each of their voicemails.
I love IKEA and have been shopping there since it opened. Today I bought a mattress it took about 15 min to get it and pay. I then stood in the "Home Delivery" line for over an hour. There are two lines labeled "Home Delivery" I got behind one person in one of the lines. It took about 15 min to process her. I smiled at the employee while she took care of the woman in front of me. When she was done she walked away and seemed to meander around-She never said to me when I arrived "I am sorry but when I am done with this person in front of you I will be leaving" . I watched her go up to someone in the "Pick up line" and ask them if she could help them. I had to get in the other "Home Delivery" . I waited 45 min behind 2 people. When I finally was next person up the Ikea employee kept turning and having a conversation with another employee about some personal gossiping while I stood there waiting for her to finish. I finally asked her to focus on processing my paperwork. The employees in the store and at check out have always been helpful and nice, but my first experience with "Home Delivery" was terrible.
Well this is a review on one of the customer service people on the floor. So I wasn't told that I needed a mid-beam for the bed frame I purchased from the Palo Alto location. I only found out that it was needed when I read the instructions on how to put the bed together. I got all 3 boxes which is all I thought I needed. Anyway, I asked one ikea sales floor person about whether the beam was supposed to come with the bed and she mentioned no. I asked for the part number and she gave me the bin where I can find it. Then off to the bed section of ikea. I asked another sales floor person about slats for my bed. I also mentioned that I was getting a foam mattress so she added a specific slat to get for a foam bed. I don't like sales people most of the time because they are too pushy or most customer service people don't spend that much effort into explaining things, but this was a diamond in the rough. And I had to write a review about it.
Ikea and its employees behave like gangsters when a customer complains about a not delivered as promised product. Wife bought a mattress and after checking in person at store was told it was ready for pick up at a warehouse in Hayward. We rented a truck and drove all the way from Larkspur but were told it was not there. We returned to the store and asked for an explanation, which was not acceptable for us since they just blamed the other company. When we requested a refund they said basically that it was up to them, whenever they wanted. The supposed store manager, by the name of Jeff acted rudely, abusive and when he realized that we did not accept his abuse decided to call two muscle men to force us out of the store, My wife and I are 60 year old persons just stating our right to get our money back for a product that was not delivered to us as agreed. Ikea and its employees acted in an abusive and overbearing manner, just like gangsters pushing out an unwanted customer. The supposed manager Jeff showed no real capacity to sustain an intelligent argument or satisfy a client's rights. I do not appreciate being treated like a criminal just because I do not agree to being abused, lied and threatened by management's muscle men. It is incredible that this type of behavior is still allowed in this day an age by an international business, SHAME ON IKEA and its incompetent employees. Why does the customer have to pay for their incompetence and abuse! By now the purchase price of the product has more than doubled in cost, thank you Ikea and thank you Jeff for humiliating me and my wife. I cannot believe that this company has such an incompetent working there, a real gangster! Or perhaps it reflects the company's real policies? Is he the gangster or are they all?
I'm always reluctant to write reviews on such poor customer service but I feel as though this time around it needs to be heard. Like many of us, Ikea has been a great source for inexpensive do it yourself furniture. I actually find that the quality of the furniture has gotten better over the years which is the ONLY reason this review gets 1 star, otherwise it would be zero if the choice was possible. My gripe is with the awful customer service! Where should I begin? The problem first came up when I went to buy a new bedroom set for the spare bedroom. Bed Frame, Box set, Mattress all in all just under $900. Before I gathered all the items on my cart I asked if there would be a delivery date available for the upcoming saturday. It can only be saturday because no one is home friday and sunday would be too late as my family that will be visiting will already be there. I was very specific about the request. The guy at the service desk assured me that YES the saturday I need my things delivered should not be a problem. So here I am in my suit sweating as I gather all the items onto two separate carts. Roll them through the checkout, stood in line for home delivery for another 30 minutes, got to the front only for them to tell me that Saturday delivery is NOT available! Needless to say I was pretty upset. This was the last thing I needed after having worked overtime all week with family on their way into town and I only had ONE opportunity to get them some type of bed to sleep on before their arrival. So now I had to stand in line in returns to get my money back. That was another 30 minutes. I had to explain to them why I'm returning items I only just bought a little over an hour ago. The concept wasn't sinking in so they called a supervisor. The supervisor final approved my return but low and behold they didn't have enough cash to cover what I paid in cash for the transaction. So they gave me a smaller portion back in cash and were supposed to refund the remaining amount back to my credit card. "Supposed" to be the key word there. After several days of not seeing the refund hit my account I called Ikea. They said its the banks fault. I called the bank. Bank said there is nothing on their end indicating that a refund was made. Told me to go back to Ikea. Long story short, I've now been back to Ikea 4 more times since the initial purchase and return date and still nothing has been resolved. They have an authorization number to re-do the return because it wasn't completed the first time. I was told a rep would call me to get the credit card number over the phone so I wouldn't come back in. That was now 4 days ago. At this point I should be surprised. I'm still missing my $600+ dollars and I'm looking to go back again to settle this once and for all.
This is a review for Dynamex (IKEA's delivery service) I bought a king size bed, slats, and mattress from IKEA and paid for a delivery service on Thursday. I was informed by IKEA that Dynamex would call me Saturday to let me know of a 4 hour delivery window for the Sunday. Saturday: I never received a call from Dynamex. Sunday: I called them as soon as they opened to find out what was going on and was told that no information on my order has been updated and to call back in an hour... So I did call back in an hour and was told that I did not have a delivery scheduled and that neither the dispatch nor the driver was picking up the phone. I was assured by the woman at Dynamex that she would call the driver every 15 minutes to get an update on my delivery and that she, in turn, would call me to give me a status update. Sure enough she did call me back (only phone call that was ever returned) and let me know that no delivery window was available. I called a few hours later again and spoke to a very rude man named Michael who interrupted me numerous times. He told me my order "could not be located." When I asked for an explanation he simply said, in a matter of fact tone, "Your order is lost and there is nothing I can do" Wow. Monday: I called around 11 am and spoke to a woman who said no delivery window was available but promised me that I could expect a phone call back from Dynamex in a short while at which time I would receive a 4 hour window for delivery the following day. I was worried when she added, "If you don't receive a call, call us before 4pm today" Well, as I am sure you can guess, nobody called me. So, before 4pm I gave Dynamex yet another call. Again I spoke to Michael who gave me the run-around. Same, story "ma'am your order cannot be located in the warehouse" and "ma'am, we are doing our best." When I ask Michael for details/ an explanation he acts as though I am irritating him. I let him know that another Dynamex employee let me know that my delivery would happen tomorrow and I could expect to get a delivery window today. He basically said that wasn't true and that I was shit out of luck. What customer service! I STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED MY ORDER. IKEA should not do business with this clearly incompetent company. Yes, this is the fault of the delivery company, but I hold both IKEA and Dyamex responsible. If you have to buy something oversized from IKEA may I suggest renting a U-Haul or Truck for the day and doing it yourself? There's no doubt that it will be cheaper and more efficient. Side Note: I've called IKEA to say that if my items are not delivered tomorrow I want a refund/ cancel my order. I've been on hold for $25+ MINUTES. What a beacon of efficiency !!!
I was in the process of moving and my old mattress was over ten years old and giving me and my older dog all kinds of problems. I had a car accident injury that would act up a lot and the mattress was too soft to be of any help. My dog was almost 11 at the time and had arthritis and the mattress was so soft he couldn't get in and out of bed; I had to carry him. I was drawn to this mattress when I read the description because I wanted something very firm but still comfortable. My concern was that the mattress be comfortable for myself and my dog since he sleeps on it too. The mattress arrived in a box very quickly with consistent updates (when it was being processed, shipped, etc). We had it shipped to our new apartment so that there would be plenty of room to unbox it and let it settle (it's recommended you give it 48 hours to fully form). We unboxed it in an empty room (make sure you have lots of space) and it was like unrolling a giant tube of cinnamon rolls! As soon as we cut the plastic, it started settling very quickly. I'm pretty sure my dog did not give it the full 48 hours before he insisted on testing it. Our first night with the new mattress was great- it doesn't dip or leave an indent when you've slept in it for a while. My dog can move really easily on the mattress and sleeps very comfortably through the night. My back pain has gradually started to go away as well. The mattress also doesn't seem to collect a ton of body heat which is especially helpful in the summer! I've had this mattress for over three months now and I am SO happy with it. I fall asleep much quicker than I did before and wake up much more comfortably. My dog prefers to spend as much of his day as possible on the bed- it is even preferable to his favorite spot on the couch he's had for years. I've been telling all my friends who need new beds to check out The Voila Box because a good mattress makes SUCH a huge difference in your quality of life. Good sleep helps everything!! *I received this mattress complimentary; however, all opinions are entirely my own*View More Reviews
We bought 2 twin extra-firm XL's around Xmas 2017 when we were in FL and had them delivered to the condo we bought in MA. We slept on them a few days, went back to FL, and then moved back to MA. June 7, 2018, so I have actually been sleeping on it for about 7 weeks. The extra firm mattress was too firm for my hips, neck, and shoulder (side-sleeper) but it was 100-day comfort guarantee, and I was well over the 100-day comfort guarantee. When I emailed Voila about this they offered to send me a 2" Performance enhancing gel-infused memory foam topper designed to complement their Voila Hybrid mattress. I appreciate this gesture of goodwill from Voila and must add my wife loves her extra firm mattress, as she did not like the "valley" that formed over time with mattresses we had in FL.
Purchased a medium queen sized Voila for my parents and they have loved the bed from day 1. My father is a light sleeper and will wake up randomly through the night for whatever reason and not fall asleep. With the Voila bed, he has been sleeping through the night and is less grouchy overall. When I need to replace my own bed, I will be buying a Voila for myself. Worth every penny.
We received our mattress yesterday. It was two days early! Being an older couple, we hired our grandson and friend to carry it upstairs. It was easy to unpack and the plastic removed without problem. There was no smell. We let it rest for 4 hours. Then I made it up with our queen sheets. They fit better on this bed than on anyone bed we have had. Six hours later we tried it briefly with my husband saying it might be too hard. I ordered the plush for him. Well we had a fantastic first night sleep! I hesitated to order a bed online but so far we are completely happy.
I had a 100% memory foam mattress for the past three years and decided to get a new one after I herniated a disc in my back about a year ago and my doctor suggested upgrading to a firmer mattress to help support my back while sleeping. I ended up settling on the firm Voila and it has been a substantial upgrade to my memory foam mattress. I find it much more supportive than the "firm" memory foam mattress I had, and since purchasing it about 4 months ago I haven't noticed any degradation in the shape of the bed. Recently I've been able to start doing athletic activity again, and I think part of that is due to upgrading my bed to a firmer, better mattress. I sleep really well, and feel great getting out of bed in the morning. I'm extremely satisfied with the bed and would definitely recommend their firm mattress to someone searching more back support. The one thing to note that I didn't expect is that, coming to Voila from a 100% memory foam mattress, this bed is HEAVY. Makes sense when you think about the implications of the construction, but it shocked me when I was moving the bed from the box to my bedframe, especially considering I have a bad back! But that isn't a reason not to buy it. Just be careful the first time you try to pick it up!
After 46 years married to my best friend (Judy) and many different types of mattresses over those years, we found the "Voila mattress" has given us the best nights sleep we have ever had. Thank you,-Jerry and Judy
Absolutely love this mattress! My back hasn't felt this good in years. I have waited 100 days, so I can give the best review. After much reading, including reviews on Consumer reports, I decided on the medium firmness to help with back pain. I had increasingly worse back pain on my old innerspring mattress that had gotten too soft and was sagging. Finally decided it could be the mattress and I was correct. It definitely felt too firm the first month, but my back was already feeling better, so decided it must be the right firmness. Currently it feels so comfortable to me. I sleep in all positions, back, side, and stomach. Even after a day of yard work resulting in soreness, my back feels back to normal the next day. Can't recommend it enough!
After many years of a traditional mattress, we were looking for an upgrade to the sleeping experience. After trying another well known foam mattress, we were left with a less than satisfying solution. The mattress had minimal edge support and was softer than expected......so we returned it and searched for an alternative. We found Voila and frankly were slightly skeptical. Full disclosure - we had a back-up plan to buy a traditional mattress if this one did not work out. It has been a few weeks now, and we are happy to say the Voila has delivered on all of our sleeping expectations. Great edge support! Great comfort! Awesome breathability! This is a keeper! The only thing keeping us from awarding a full 5-stars is that the company does not offer a delivery/set-up option. The OTR carrier simply wanted to leave the mattress in our driveway - not good for a king-size delivery! Besides that point we are 100% satisfied and recommend this mattress. Best regards, The Hanshews
I got this mattress quickly and it has been extremely comfortable. No complaints so far with it.
I purchased this mattress two and a half months ago. I saw that people were saying the medium mattress was really firm, but didn't want one that would be too soft. My husband loves the firmness. I am not so sure. At 102 lbs., I hardly put a dent in it. However, I was recently diagnosed with sleep apnea, so I hope things will improve. I'm giving it a 4 until further notice.
We had a pillow top mattress for about 8 years and even put a gel mattress topper on it but I would wake up with back aches and as a side sleeper-numb arms! So I decided it was time for a new Cal. King mattress so the research started! There are SO many mattress stores everywhere and stopping in can be an education in itself but a very expensive one!! So I went to Consumer Report and read the reviews and recommendations on foam, traditional coil mattresses and then hybrid mattresses which combines the two; that was what we wanted! Now to order a “bed in a box” or go to a store?!? Decided to order-no huge commission for sales person- but then which one because are about 10 different beds here too. Most all have some return policies so that relieved my husband fears IF we didn’t like it. Viola has 90 days but they want you sleep on it 30 days before you decide so you can adjust to mattress. We have slept on the mattress 16 days and I can say I don’t wake up with back aches! The numb arm comes and goes so will have to see on it. My husband greatest fear was it would be too hard we ordered medium firmness and he says it is fine. There is many layers but I just wonder if there could be a little bit more woven jel on top so there is a little more softness for the initial touch? All in all we are pleased; there are cheaper “ordered” mattresses and a few more expensive but $1400 was what we paid.
I have been sleeping on a Sleep Number mattress for 20+ years (two different mattresses). I find the Voila mattress to be just, if not more comfortable. If you've been shopping for mattresses you know that Viola is about 1/3 of the price as Sleep Number. Enough said.
We recently purchased the Voila king mattress for our second home based on the Consumer Reports and other reviews we read. I must say I was skeptical buying a mattress in a box and not checking it out first. We love it!! It is extremely comfortable and my lower back pain is no longer an issue in the morning. Our youngest daughter is moving out on her own and we bought her a smaller size in the same mattress.
Amazing how the bed fits into a box. Cal king size. Great price. Ordered firm and it’s very firm I’m sure it will soften as time goes on. Only real problem was the delivery R+LCarriers gave the 5 hour window at the end of the 6th hour the driver called as we were about to go to dinner and said he wouldn’t deliver because he didn’t know the streets in our area (wasn’t the normal driver) and didn’t want to take the truck up the hill. My wife and I had to met the driver and deliver the mattress to the back of our car. Not great service.
I bought 2 twin sized mattresses for teenage daughters - they are blown away with the difference between their old mattress and the Voila mattress. Delivery was prompt, unpackaging was easy, and overall no fuss. I highly recommend.
I ordered the Plush XL Twin. I am a side sleeper and I woke up several times at night because either my arm on that side was asleep or my entire side hurt. It really did not feel "plush" to me. Perhaps this mattress is more ideal for back sleepers.
Medium hard/soft. Very good mattress, excellent for the price. Very comfortable. just a note: getting it up to the 2nd floor is a two person job, I recommend removing the box, but not cutting the inner plastic wrap, the plastic slides better on stairs.
We were sleeping on a Saatva for just under two years when we decided to downsize the bed for more floor space in our bedroom. I was just about to pull the trigger on another Saatva when I saw Consumer Reports ratings of the Voila. Figured what the heck, they pay shipping both ways so I'll give Voila a try. THE BEST decision I've ever made concerning a bed purchase. I'm a side sleeper, but on the Voila I sleep side, back, stomach, and am so comfortable and rested in the morning. Love this bed so much I ordered another to replace the mattress in our guestroom. I cannot recommend this mattress enough. I bought the medium and it is perfect. Seriously, if you're thinking about a new mattress look no farther.
The mattress is fine. No complaints at all. In fact, it's quite comfortable. My only small peeve was the shipping. They used FedEx and required a signature. It was stressful since the FedEx truck usually comes during work hours and it's tough to take time off work to wait at home to sign for the mattress. Once the mattress was shipped, the folks at Voila weren't able to change the signature requirement. Still, it all worked out and now I have a fine mattress. Just be careful when you order and do everything you can to avoid the signature requirement.
We were searching for a new and firmer mattress than we currently were using. After doing an enormous amount of online and Consumer Reports research, we decided on the Voila. To be perfectly honest, we had never heard of Voila, but we certainly are glad we found it. It is amazing to watch this king size mattress, in a relatively small box, unfold into a great mattress. So far it has met all our expectations with quality and comfort. If it remains as it is, we have become Voila customers forever!
Our 9 year old Temperpedic has permanent divits on each side. They have been getting progressively worse over the past few months, which was very disappointing with such a "high priced" mattress. So I ordered a Voila King in firm which has gel top layers, not Visco foam which can and does break down over time. We then put a 3/4" memory foam mattress pad on it and when you first lay on it, your brain says, "Whoa, that's pretty firm".....then you wake up the next morning feeling great. The Voila scored a 77 out of 100 in Consumer Reports with the highest score of all mattresses tested at an 84. We went with the Voila because in the same test it's durability rating was listed as "excellent" and the price is reasonable. CR does some pretty serious accelerated wear and weight testing & I recommend reading their report. The packaging of the mattress is brilliant(the box was about 1' square and 6+' long), but remember, a King weighs in at 160lbs, so having help moving the box in recommended. Unlike the Temperpedic reviews, neither one of us noticed any strong smells from the Voila when unwrapped. Anyway, so far we are extremely pleased with the Voila, and are curious to see how it holds up over the years.
FedEx shipping required a signature for delivery. Few of us are readily available at home during the day to accept delivery. This required me to change the delivery address to a Fed Ex store, which then required me to load it into the car to bring home. So much for front door service. The packages weighs 100+ pounds, which would prevent most would-be thieves from taking it. Leaving it on the doorstep seems reasonable to me.
I had to return my first mattress from another manufacturer and now love this one. Have had it for 3 weeks
We purchased our Voila medium queen mattress last fall. Last week we discovered a bulge in the side 🙁 Not knowing much about the company, I was really concerned that there was going to be red tape, loop holes, and/or frustration trying to utilize the warranty. It ended up being one of the most pleasant customer service experiences I've had with any company. My initial email and every subsequent was responded to in a couple hours or less. All of of my questions and concerns were answered in a clear and professional manner. Those that responded came off as just being really nice. I was offered a replacement or a refund. We definitely took the replacement (we LOVE our mattress). And we already have the replacement in our apartment. Kudos to the Voila family for truly standing by your product and for treating your customers (us) so well. I will continue to recommend you to anyone and everyone. 🙂
I wanted a traditional mattress without the price and with the ability to return it after sleeping on it at home for a few weeks. I also wanted a thicker mattress and to try a boxed one with innersprings. However I didn't want to go to a traditional mattress store like RC Willey and feel...well...boxed in while trying to make a decision. The edge support on this mattress is amazing. I've slept on a few foam type mattresses that seem smaller because the edge collapses and you feel like you need to stay far away from the edge so you don't roll off. Also, the springs give Voila an advantage over a lot of the mattresses that you order online. Since it has heavy metal, ha ha you can expect this mattress to be heavy. You'll need some help getting it from the porch to the bed and in our case, up the stairs. That was definitely a workout! This is going in our guest bedroom - our old mattress upstairs has developed body impressions and that's when you know it's time for a new one.
If you are completely overwhelmed with the mattress buying process, as I completely was with so many companies, here is my review to hopefully help you out if you're looking at Voila. Research, Research, Research! I’m so happy I researched a dozen mattress companies in detail before purchasing. These companies included the likes of Casper, T&N, Purple, Alexander, Sapira, Leesa, Serta, Sealy, Beauty Rest, etc. I was overwhelmed by all the options and felt so many of them were simply telling the same story with fancy marketing videos. I had a friend tell me about an awesome new mattress company he said was breaking the mold of the typical bed-in-box company that was focused on a luxury mattress experience with an affordable price. It was Voila. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to add another company to the mix of all my research and I’m sure happy I did. Here is a quick summary of the reasons why I purchased Voila over all the other companies without going into too much detail or sharing my massive excel spreadsheet. The main things is for all the components/layers that Voila has to offer, it was extremely cheaper than all other comparable products. Coiled Springs: When I looked at every mattress over $3,000, almost all of them had zoned pocketed coiled springs and realized this is critical piece to actually get the support on all the high pressure points of the body. My lower back was in desperate need of something to provide adequate support. Quality: Voila wasn’t just 2-3 pieces of memory foam put together and compressed in a box. It had 12 layers of materials that all worked together to provide a pleasant sleeping experience. This included high quality latex, gel-infused memory foam, 5 zone pocketed coiled springs, triple edge support around the mattress (makes your mattress feel 2x the size), and breathable airflow materials to offer a cool sleep at night. Comfort Choice: I loved that there were 3 firmness options (Plush, Medium, Firm). So many of the other companies had a one size fits all firmness, but I knew we wanted something a little firmer for my wife and I, and something a little softer for my kids. Price: No, it wasn’t low-cost mattress. But Voila was easily the biggest bang for your buck company in terms of quality, layers, support, comfort level, etc. when comparing to other companies offering the same product, layers, and quality. It was actually 1/3 to 1/4 the price of comparable mattresses made with the same quality and same components. After sleeping on the mattress for a 3 months now, I can say with confidence I’ve never slept better. We had a Sleep Number before and absolutely hated it. I felt like I was always a little sore in the morning and the my butt/hips area never had support. I’ve also noticed a HUGE difference in the coolness of sleeping at night. I’m comfortably on top of the mattress and don’t feel like I’m getting smothered into the mattress. We ended up ordering twin and full size mattresses for all of our kids as well since they were on the old floral looking mattresses that were probably 20 years old. We feel it’s been a great investment. Negatives/Cons: Box came pretty dirty from the shipping company and looked a little beat up. I would recommend removing the box in your garage or outside and then carrying the plastic rolled-up mattress to your bedroom to make sure you don’t stain your carpet or floors. There was about 12-24 hours of a very light off-gasing smell. I assume this is completely normal with any compressed mattress, but couldn’t smell anything after the first day.
Voila has really created a premium style mattress that's well worth the price. Instead of going to a local store to find a mattress with coils and memory foam we found Voila. We selected the plush style and are very happy with the softness and durability of the bed. We will be looking at Voila again when we need to replace another bed at our home.
My wife and I have couldn't be happier with our Voila mattress purchase! Delivery was timely and easy to track. The mattress was a lot of fun to open, we couldn't get the six year old to stop giggling at the insta-inflate! The mattress has a great look, with the patterned top and the wavy sides. But most importantly, it's super comfortable! We are both on the larger side, and the medium is perfect. I also love that it has great edge support for sitting, unlike many other box brand mattresses. Soft but firm, cool but cozy, Voila! Our new favorite mattress!
This mattress offers both firm support and the perfect amount of cushioning on top. We got the plush mattress and we love it. I was worried that it might not be firm enough but it offers great support! I love having a little extra memory foam on top, it makes it easier on aching joints. The mattress is also really pretty with a quilted white top. We are super happy with out Voila mattress!
I ordered my Voila mattress on a Saturday evening and it arrived on Wednesday morning! The mattress arrived early on the 3rd business day just as promised. Fast! The online order process was really simple and the website is easy to navigate. I originally thought about ordering the medium firm mattress, but my husband talked me into the plush. We are very pleased with it! The mattress is still very firm and sturdy, but with just the right amount of cushioning on top. (Great for my stiff joints). When we put the mattress on our bed I was pleased with how pretty is it! The top has a white quilted pattern that looks really nice.We are super happy with our Voila mattress! Lisa L Utah
I tried Casper, and another brand that also got high marks in a review. Voila is the one I kept (medium firmness) because it was the really comfortable. I purchased about 6 months ago, and still genuinely happy with it. It's soft on the top layer, and really gets rid of pressure points. On the Casper my arms were falling asleep and getting numb. The other one I tried, was way too soft and misaligned my spine. Even thought it was so "soft", I still had pressure points on it somehow. I felt sunk into a poor posture as I slept, and rolled into the center - it was horrible. The Voila, while soft and pressure relieving on the top layer, has great support. It's really a perfect balance. When I purchased, Voila was kind new to the game. I don't know if they've got more recognition since then, but I'm writing this for some reason at 2am because I just really like this mattress lol. The only down side, I really wish there was a way to change to covers on it. I have a mattress protector, but I'd still like to change the cover once a year. Maybe my impression, but it just looks yellowish compared to bright white sheets. But, perhaps not that white to begin with I can't remember. Overall pretty minor issue. And yea, it's heavy. I solo carried it up 2 flights of stairs. You probably would like 2-3 people for the job though. And yea, it is so comfortable. Part of the reason I'm writing this, is so Voila stays alive and if I ever need replacing or adding another mattress I know where to go.
We've had this bed a few weeks and so far it has been great. We set it up in our living room so we could be sure it was going to be the right fit and left our Sleep Number bed in place. One night we switched back to the Sleep Number bed and my husband said "NO MORE!!" We both woke up hurting. My only complaint is the company who delivered it. They would not bring it up my drive way and my husband had to go and pick it up in his truck. The man would not even come help him get it in the house! So much for good customer service from R and L Carriers in Birmingham, AL!
My Voila Mattress is the BEST purchase my husband and I have ever made. Not only is their customer service incredible- they made sure our mattress arrived at the house that we were moving to (across the country) the exact same day we moved in- but also the mattress is the best I've ever slept on. The Voila mattress is not just a chunk of foam like all other bed-in-a-box mattresses out there. The Voila mattress has springs that give support, while still offering you a choice in firmness (plush, medium, or firm). Honestly, I will never sleep on another mattress ever again. It is really that amazing!
For a while now, I have been having trouble getting comfortable in my bed--lots of tossing and turning, leg aches, back soreness, waking up frequently during the night, etc. A neighbor of mine recently purchased a Voila mattress and suggested that I take a look at the Voila products. My husband and I did some research on beds and decided to purchase the Plush Voila mattress. We slept on our new mattress last night, and it was really comfortable for both of us. The difference was amazing. I had thought, "Oh, my old mattress isn't that bad," but our new Voila mattress proved me wrong. We are so happy we purchased our Voila bed, and we highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a new mattress.
Love everything about Voila!! The mattress, the delivery/packaging, their customer service, the company, the people, the price point, firmness options…!
I bought this mattress after seeing a Sleepopolis review on it. I was originally looking at getting a Tempur-Flex Supreme, which they claimed this was very similar to. Well, it wasn't; this mattress is firmer than the Tempur, but I'm hoping the foam softens some over time. I will say that even though it's firmer than I originally wanted, it only took 2 weeks to get used to the change. The new foam smell went away after 2 days. Before I would wake up 2-4 times in the middle of the night and wake up with a sore back in the morning. Now I sleep like a rock. My girlfriend and I don't wake each other up anymore when either of us moves. I've been recommending it to all my friends because you can get the mattress and a decent platform bed frame all for under $1000. Shipping was fast; I ordered Monday and received it Thursday. I would recommend that you put on a sheet before setting anything else on it because the cover likes to grab fabric.
I ordered the 'soft' mattress and it is VERY firm. After extensive research and foam density comparisons I bought this mattress because it had a better warranty than the in store mattress that we liked with nearly the same specs. However, upon arrival this mattress is MUCH firmer than both the site and the reviews had led me to believe. I weigh 180 lbs and only get 1/4-1/2" compression when lying down which doesn't even fully conform to the small of my back. The mattress firmness is about a 6-7/10 compared to everything else I have tried, not the '3' that the mattress reviews tell you. The quality of the mattress seems nice and there have been no hassles with the ordering process which is why I gave it 3 stars, but after the required 30 day trial I will have to return mine.
No joke Voila is the best mattress I have EVER slept on!!! I had another competitor's boxed mattress before my Voila and there is no comparison. I travel a lot for work too and I can't wait to get back home to slumber upon my own personal cloud! Thank you Voila!!!!!
This has been the easiest mattress buying experience ever. No pushy salesman or going into a store to lie on a bunch of different mattresses. It arrived at the door one day, then we unrolled it, opened it up and done. I love that it is a hybrid of memory foam, latex, and pocket coils. We replaced my daughter's old saggy memory foam only mattress and she has loved it.
I have researched extensively on the kind of mattress we were ready to purchase. My decision was a hybrid . Glad I waited for this newer innovative option-because its the best of both worlds. Business on the bottom-Party on the top!. I consulted customer service because I wasn't sure the "soft " option would be supportive enough for my large husband, but it has proven to be great. Smooth delivery, easy set up, and a very well made product that is affordable for a high quality mattress. So happy to have a fantastic choice for a good night sleep for both of us! (P.S. The soft is on the firm side) We really got a winner!!
