Let’s be honest: no one is swapping out their mattress every 10 years like we’re supposed to. Online ordering alone hasn’t been enough to bump the mattress swap up our list of priorities, though the mattress-in-a-box delivery trend thankfully improves on the superstore experience—and perhaps none other more so than Parachute’s new complimentary white glove service.
Get carefully curated content filled with inspiring homes from around the world, innovative new products, and the best in modern design.
As linen enthusiasts are probably aware, Parachute has established itself as an authority on understated and affordable bedding essentials. The brand sells everything from duvet covers to bed frames, and they’ve recently rounded out their collection with the announcement of The Mattress.
The Mattress is designed to set a new standard. While polyurethane foam dominated the mattress scene for a while, it's recently been challenged by the desire for less toxic, more supportive alternatives. Parachute’s mattress is crafted in the United States with the environment in mind, using only organic cotton and ethically sourced New Zealand wool. It’s also non-toxic and hypoallergenic.
However, for those who truly dread the suggested decennial mattress change, the most alluring feature may be the free delivery and setup. If you're like us and you don’t look forward to unpacking an 80-pound box of solid mattress and waiting for it to carefully rise like a giant cake, the white glove service will be an appreciated bonus. (As of August 1, Parachute will also offer customers UPS shipping as an alternative.)
This service may be baked into the price, which at $1,899 is a bit pricier than other mattresses available online. However, the price also reflects the careful choice in materials, including tempered steel springs rather than foam. Steel spring construction helps with cooling if you run hot, and harkens back to traditional innerspring mattress design. For the marriage of luxury mattress construction and a chemical-free sleep experience, we'd consider the price justified.
Parachute’s reviewers rave about the flexibility and ease of the delivery process—and the 90-day trial period which guarantees free returns if needed. With the stress and hassle of moving a mattress eliminated, all that’s left for you to do is get a good night’s sleep.
