I discovered Halstead while researching what type of mattress I should purchase on a forum. When a commenter mentioned that I could get a custom mattress for around the same price, or slightly higher than a big name brand, depending on the level of mattress, my interest was piqued. When I found out that big brand mattresses are now built with planned obsolescence and that a Halstead custom mattress lasts 3 times longer (25 years+ for the mattress, about 8 years for the topper), I knew it was a no brainer to spend a little bit more for a superior quality mattress. Throughout the process, Natalie and Martin set up several mattress configurations for my fiancé and I. First, we laid on a pad that mapped where the most pressure was between our bodies and the mattress. Then, Martin and Natalie let us try different modules (there are 6 modules per mattress, head, torso, legs for 2 people – really offers ultimate customization between soft, medium, and firm), cores, and toppers. We spent quite a few hours in total trying to nail down our perfect mattress and Martin and Natalie gave us as much time as we needed.
Our custom Halstead Mattress has been wonderful to sleep on. It feels like a bed at the Four Seasons, and is easy to rotate as you don’t have to flip the entire mattress (just unzip the topper and rotate the individual modules). Also important to us was the fact that we could support a local Canadian business as opposed to giving our money to the big brands which build products that deteriorate after 2 years so you want to buy new mattresses more often.
If you want to buy a superior mattress that is built to last, then I highly recommend Halstead. Thank you Martin and Natalie for a great mattress buying experience. Looking forward to seeing you in 25 years, after we’ve gotten married, had kids, sent them to college, and need a new mattress.
