Nobody knows what will make you feel good. Everybody is different.
Many times customers have asked me “What mattress do you recommend ?” My answer is always “Whatever mattress makes you feel good.” Nobody knows what will make you feel good. Everybody is different. One customer will say a certain mattress is perfect; someone else will say it is too soft; someone else will say the same mattress is too hard. There is not one mattress that will make everybody feel good. It depends on whether you sleep on your side, back or stomach. Also, how much a customer weighs will be a deciding factor.
Consumer Reports magazine (March, 1997) said “A good mattress will gently support your body at all points. Although we could find no published scientific data on what type of mattress is best, orthopedic experts generally recommend the firmest mattress that you find comfortable.” I always start with “comfortable.” If you are not comfortable, you wasted your money.
Very Important : Lay on the mattress at least about 10 or 15 minutes before you buy it. A mattress can feel good at first, and later you might start feeling pain or pressure points.

You can use most mattress warranties for toilet paper. Almost everything that will go wrong with your mattress is not covered by the warranty. Most mattress warranties actually protect the manufacturer more than they protect you. The warranties do not cover dips, body impressions and sags; They say that the mattress is conforming to your body. That protects the manufacturer, but the customer is not happy, and your money is gone. Also there are so many “ifs”, “buts” and exclusions that make the warranty almost useless. Make sure you buy from someone that will take care of you.

What you need to know about foam.
Foam can be “low-density” or “high density”. Low density foam is like whipped cream or angel food cake: You can take a small amount of materials and whip it up in to a thick soft-feeling foam, but the low-density foam breaks down quickly, and you are soon sleeping in dips and body impressions, and the nice feeling you had when you bought the mattress is gone. Naturally, because the low-density foam uses less materials, it is cheaper to make. Low-density foam is 1.5 lbs./cubic foot or less. The lower the density, the cheaper it is, and the sooner it will break down. High-density foam is like pound cake: It is heavier, because it uses more materials, but it lasts longer, and it is not cheap. High density foam starts at about 1.8 lb./cubic foot and can go as high as 4 or 5lbs./cubic foot. Good foam is not cheap, and cheap foam is not good. PROBLEM: Many salespeople, even factory salespeople, do not know the foam density in the mattresses. And the factories are not eager to tell you about the foam density, because many of them are using 1.5 density foam, even in their very expensive mattresses. Some manufacturers are saying that 1.5 lb. foam is “high-density”. Most mattress warranties do not cover dips, body impressions and sags; They say that the mattress is conforming to your body. That protects the manufacturer, but the customer is not happy, and your money is gone. A further word of caution: I have read that some foam (NOT from USA) was “weighted”: meaning that something was added to the foam to make it heavier – to give the impression that it was high-density foam. (I think this would be a rare situation, because most importers are trying to protect their reputation.)
Renaissance Furnishings does have low-density foam in our economy mattresses (to keep the price down), but we tell the customer up-front, before buying.
We do not sell mattresses with “egg-crate” foam. Egg-crate foam gives a nice wonderful, soft feel, but it wears out fast, and the nice, soft feel is gone. Naturally the customer is at a disadvantage, because the customer cannot see inside the mattress.

Contour-Coil / Cool Gel Comfort Combination
This mattress is equivalent to or better than many so-called “top-of-the-line” mattresses, and is much more affordable.
Contour Coils: Each coil is individually wrapped to contour to your body – to help take away the pressure points of your hips, shoulders and back. (Most of the old mattress innersprings were all connected together with wires – which was more like sleeping on a trampoline.)
Foam-Encased: Wall of firm foam around the springs makes a nice edge to sit on, eliminates a thick border wire and allows us to have a softer innerspring.
Four-pound Density Cool-Gel Foam

899.95 KING mattress
Many customers like this better than the “memory-foam mattresses”, because in addition to the cool-gel memory foam on top, it has contour-coils underneath, instead of a thick base of firm foam. The mattress also has an extra layer of foam between the springs and the cool gel foam. It is very comfortable.
“Boxsprings” and Foundations
Real boxsprings are better for regular innerspring mattresses, and their purpose is to make the mattress last longer and be more comfortable. BIG PROBLEM: Customers would SIT on the edge of the mattress to test it. If the mattress went down (because of the real boxsprings), the customer would say that the mattress was junk – which was not true. Besides a mattress is to lay-on, not sit-on. A mattress cannot be hard when someone sits on it, and then become nice and comfortable when someone lays on it. Most manufacturers and retailers decided not to fight customer perception, so they just gave up on the boxsprings idea and made “foundations.” (You can win an argument and lose the sale. Perception is everything. You cannot argue with how someone feels, etc.)
Exception: Foam mattresses and mattresses with individually wrapped “pocket coils” do NOT need real boxsprings. Foam mattresses and mattresses with pocket coils could actually be damaged by a boxprings with too much bounce in it. It is best just to lay it on a flat surface, or a platform bed or a foundation.
The color of the fabric is different than what is shown in this picture.

2) We sell mattresses made in USA. Most of the people in China, Viet Nam, Mexico, and other countries are people just like us – working hard, trying to make a living. I have nothing against them, and I wish God’s blessing upon them. But I’m responsible, as a retailer, to make sure I sell you a safe product. You may have heard about safety issues regarding toothpaste, dogfood, drywall, etc., imported from China. The mattresses made in China are supposed to be safe. There are plenty of cheap Chinese mattresses on Amazon and other internet retailers. Call me paranoid, but I just don’t want to take that chance with my customers. Also, here is something important to remember: There are many mattresses with American-sounding names and brandnames that are actually made in China, and some companies just put a new cover on them here and say they are made in United States.
3) Made in USA, Part 2 If I buy something made in America, it helps another American have a job. It’s American workers who pay for our roads, schools, Social Security, local police, and all the benefits we have here. It’s American workers who shop at our grocery stores, hardware stores, clothing stores, and buy our cars, etc. It’s American workers who pay people to build our houses, fix our heating and air-conditioning, do our landscaping, pay the doctor bills, etc. In one way or another, the job you save by buying American may be your own. Renaissance Furnishings does sell some things that are imported (not mattresses), usually because there is a large price difference, but as much as possible we try to search and find American suppliers.
