If you’ve been following Sleepopolis for a little while then you’ve probably already read or watched some of my reviews on Tuft & Needle. Tuft & Needle is a company that places a big emphasis on gradual improvement and constantly looking for ways to better their mattress. As a result, the Tuft & Needle that was shipping 6 months ago is significantly different, and significantly improved, over the T&N mattresses that ships today.
This past Summer my wife and I upgraded from our full bed to a king sized Tuft & Needle. Unfortunately, that mattress just didn’t work out for us. It was extremely firm and we ended up returning.
However, a few days ago my brand new Tuft & Needle mattress arrived. This new mattress has all the new design improvements and foam enhancements, making it a totally different (and hopefully better) mattress.
Check out our unboxing of the new Tuft & Needle and read some of my initial thoughts below!
Just as with my first Tuft & Needle, this one still has great cooling and a very buoyant feel. You will not sink much into this mattress. It’s quite a bit softer than my previous Tuft & Needle also.
Very simple, but it gets the job done. Tuft & Needle as a company places more emphasis on function over form, so you won’t find a special design, texture, or extra bells and whistles in on the cover. It’s white, a bit stretchy, and has a nice logo embroidered.
All in all, I’m optimistic. My biggest complaint with the original Tuft & Needle was the firmness, and that seems to have been fixed to a certain degree. Last night felt a little firmer than I would really like it to be, however, we only gave the mattress 3-4 hours post-unboxing before sleeping on it. As with any mattress that comes compressed in a box it can take a few days to full unwind. We’ll be conducting our sleep test this week on the Tuft & Needle and posting our full review towards the end of this next week.
