This was one of those incredible opportunities I like to think of as kismet. Bo and I had a barely 3-year-old mattress that was nothing but problems, and we were debating getting a new one (it was pretty hard to stomach the thought of buying another new mattress so soon when we definitely didn’t cheap out on the last one, but our sleep quality was dismal). Then, I checked my email and had a message from the (incredibly nice, helpful, knowledgable, proud, and excited) people at Logan and Cove by Novosbed, wondering if I’d like to try out one of their brand new king size mattresses. I say proud because in all my dealings with them you can FEEL the pride they have in their work, they are excited about this new luxury mattress brand. It’s a lot easier to trust a company when you can tell they’re emotionally invested in what they’re selling.
There are so many different things I want to tell you about this whole experience, so let’s break it down into sections to make it a bit easier. First I’m going to give you my personal experiences, what our issues were with our old mattress, and how this amazing hybrid innerspring and foam mattress solved those issues. After that, I’ll lay out exactly why the Logan and Cove mattress is miles above other brands!
We spent over $2500 on our last mattress. We didn’t cheap out, and we got hosed. First off, it didn’t have handles on the side (I know this isn’t the most important detail, but it’s such a simple thing, it speaks to how little some “luxury” brands actually think about the end-user). It is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to rotate a mattress without handles (I literally squealed when I saw the handles on the side the Logan and Cove). On the very first night on that old mattress I woke up with back pain, but we bought a firm mattress then because it was supposed to be better for sore backs. I assumed it would get better (it didn’t). Within two years the mattress was sagging, Bo was sweating through shirts every night, both of our backs were hurting, and my joints were unbearable. But the company (Sears) went out of business, and our warranty went with it.
So, there are going to be some trigger words in here, words that would have made me RUN from any mattress if I had seen them, so PLEASE READ TO THE END! This was a lesson that assumptions can’t be made when the time was taken to design something properly!
My first impression when I laid down on this mattress was “uh oh”. It felt firm. Like, super firm. When we bought that last mattress we bought a firm one and from day one I suffered from back pain. But I kept laying on it. In fact I grabbed a book and laid there and read for 30 minutes. Then I was really confused, because I was so comfortable.
I realized that when you laid down, you sunk in just enough to be comfortable, while still being totally supported. It didn’t matter how I laid down either. On my side or on my back, I was always super comfortable for as long as I wanted to lay there.
When I sat up I noticed something else pretty awesome – the edge barely sags when you sit on it. If you sat on the edge of our old mattress it just collapsed into a slide to the floor (good times). On the Logan and Cove mattress, the edge holds its shape amazingly well. I’ve even woken up a few times sleeping basically right on the edge, and it feels like any other part of the mattress. It’s crazy!
Also – there is NO SMELL. Before it arrived I talked with some family and friends that had ordered a mattress in a box from some of the other “popular” companies, and every single one of them warned me that there was a very strong chemical smell for about 3 days. Logan and Cove mattresses DO NOT SMELL. At all. I laid down on it as soon as it was unboxed and even then, there was no smell at all. This is a true testament to being a 100% luxury mattress made in Canada. They use high-end foams, and that means no nasty chemical smells. Bo and I both suffer from migraines, and strong smells are a trigger, so this was a really big positive for us.
So, that’s the first thing I tell people. This mattress is confusing. Your first thought is that it’s going to be too firm, but it never (and I mean NEVER), gets uncomfortable. It’s incredible, and supper supportive. Actually, while I’m mentioning support…
What about if you suffer from joint pain?
Surprise! I haven’t talked about this on the blog yet, because it just hasn’t organically come up, but I think this is the perfect time to let you in on the fact that last summer I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis (I’ve probably been suffering with it for about 4 years, but I’m slow to admit I don’t feel well). I also didn’t tell the folks at Logan and Cove about this either.
What is Psoriatic Arthritis? Well, it’s basically the same thing as Rheumatoid Arthritis only it can also affect the tendons, as well as the joints. Fun times. So far I’ve got it in my feet, ankles, knees (the worst is in my knees), hips, and left hand. It means I hurt pretty much all day long while doing things I used to take for granted, like walking, kneeling on the floor with the kids, or climbing stairs. On our old mattress if I tried to flip over at night, the pain in my knees woke me up every time (spoiler alert – this hasn’t happened once since we got our Logan and Cove mattress). I truly hadn’t had a restful nights sleep in over three years.
I have been completely shocked with the difference this mattress has made in my morning routine, and I’ll explain that in detail next.
What our nights were
What they are now
We’ve had the Logan and Cove mattress for three weeks now. I honestly can’t believe how much of a difference it has made in my sleep quality, mood, and overall well-being. I’m just going to give you a few before and afters with the big changes we saw:
- Movement – I used to be woken up multiple times a night when Bo would move around or flip over. I haven’t woken up once from him moving on the Logan and Cove. There is virtually no motion transfer – thank you 1000 spring mattress.
- Sweating – Bo always sweat on our old mattress. It didn’t matter what we did – window open, fan on (we had a giant tower fan right at the end of the bed blowing only on him), air conditioning blasting, he still sweat. A lot some times, like waking up to change his shirt a lot. That is completely gone on the Logan and Cove, thanks to the layer of heat-dissipating cooling gel foam and the breathable silk blend pillow top. This is probably the biggest shocker to me, I didn’t think the mattress could possibly be the cause of his sweating, but it was. Three cheers for a real cooling mattress!
- Tossing and Turning – I used to toss and turn all night. For years I just thought I’d become a terrible sleeper. I could be in bed for ten hours, tossing and turning, and still wake up feeling exhausted. It didn’t matter how much rest I got, I was always tired. On my first night on the Logan and Cove mattress I slept for exactly 7 hours, woke up just before 6am, and felt completely rested and ready to tackle the day. This is how I used to sleep years ago, and I missed it so much. I have felt so much more like myself since we got our new mattress, more alert, more energy, more myself.
- Joint Pain – On our old mattress I would wake up every time I flipped over because my knees hurt so much. I’m not waking up at all now due to joint pain, and I’m guessing it’s because I’m more supported, and I’m not moving as much in a struggle to get comfortable (because I am comfortable). I also used to have a tough time getting moving in the mornings. The struggle isn’t completely gone, I still have Psoriatic Arthritis and that’s never going away, but I’m REALLY surprised with the difference that’s been made. Now, even though I’m still a bit more sore in the morning than I am at two in the afternoon, I would say that I have had a 70% decrease in my morning stiffness. This is SHOCKING. On the old mattress it would take me about an hour before I felt like I was moving at my best in the mornings, and now I get out of bed basically feeling exactly the same as I will all day long. Only people with joint pain and stiffness will probably understand what I’m saying here. It’s kinda like our joints rust up over night, and it’s not until we use them for a while that they start to get greased up again. My treatment hasn’t changed over this time, and isn’t really working very well so far (in fact, I’m currently waiting to get started on biologics, so it’s only going to get better in the future for me). Literally the only thing that changed for me over the last month was getting the Logan and Cove mattress.
Alright, now that I’ve told you about the difference the Logan and Cove mattress has made in my sleep quality, I’ll get to the nitty gritty details about exactly who this company is, and why their mattresses are so amazing.
Logan and Cove by Novosbed
100% Canadian Made
Luxury Hybrid Bed In A Box
Logan and Cove is a new mattress brand by Novosbed. They are a Canadian company, designing and fabricating mattresses across the country, using only Canadian products. This is incredible, and makes you feel really, REALLY good about owning one.
The Logan and Cove line isn’t your typical bed in a box either, because it isn’t just foam. This is the only Canadian inner-spring/memory foam hybrid that comes in a box. I was shocked at how small and easy to manage the box was, and then how big and luxurious the mattress was once it was opened up. If you’d like to see an unboxing video, I really liked this one (I watched and read everything I could find over the 24 hours it took our mattress to arrive, their shipping was crazy fast).
3 parts to the mattress
You can see an amazing cut away of all the layers here.
The first is a cooling pillow top with heat dissipating gel memory foam and natural temperature regulating silk and eucalyptus-derived fibres. It’s incredibly soft and comfortable.
The second section is made up of multiple layers of foam that shape, mould, and conform to your body. This is what is giving me all that needed support for my hips, shoulders, knees, and feet. It also has targeted lumbar support for better spine alignment no matter what sleep position you prefer. I switch between sleeping on my side or my back, and Bo is always either on his side or stomach, so we run the gambit in this house.
The bottom section of the mattress has individually wrapped pocketed coils and more memory foam to absorb movement and isolate motion. This is why I don’t feel Bo if he moves at night, and how I can get out of the bed first thing in the morning without waking him up now.
The Logan and Cove Guarantees
Logan and Cove give you a worry free, no questions asked 120-night sleep trial. If you aren’t happy, they’ll give you a full refund and pick the mattress back up. All they ask is that you give it 30 days before deciding, because it can take a little bit for your body adjust to a new mattress.
To make this guarantee even more warm and fuzzy, if you aren’t happy with the mattress and do return it, they donate the used mattresses to charities. Talk about being Canadian through and through!
Plus, after those first 120 nights, you’re still covered with a
10 15 year warranty (Updating on May 30, 2018 – they just tacked on an additional five years to make the warranty 15 years, what other company INCREASES their warranty period!) for any issues relating to craftsmanship and quality. And that warranty is non prorated!
Want a deal on this mattress?
You get one every day!
One of the things I REALLY loved about Logan and Cove is this – the price is guaranteed, 365 days of the year. There’s no middle man, no brick and mortar store adding percentages, and they never want you to feel like you need to wait for a sale to buy. The price will not change all year, because you’re getting the best price all the time! And shipping is always free, and fast. I know, it’s amazing! They have a pretty amazing comparison on their website too, comparing the Logan and Cove mattress with other luxury brands and stores in Canada. Click here and scroll down to the bottom to see it.
Ok, I’m pretty positive that I have GUSHED through this entire post (at least I hope I have, because that’s honestly how I feel about our new Logan and Cove luxury pillow top hybrid mattress). The wonderful people at Logan & Cove are almost as excited as I am to be giving away one of their mattresses to one of you!
