We’re going to let you in on a little secret. 

Behind the scenes, we’re always looking for more ways to provide you with the complete home experience. We are continually striving to deliver quality interiors that not only look good, but also provide entertainment, form, and function with the latest home technologies. 

That said, we believe that good sleep is an essential part of the home experience. That’s why, we’ve added a full line of mattresses to the Parker Gwen collection- ranging from affordable functionality to luxurious, superior comfort. 

We’ve curated a full assortment of the best mattresses and box springs from the top brands. And as always, we only included mattresses we would sleep on ourselves. 

We’ve learned a lot along the way and know how hard it can be to pick out the right mattress. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help every type of sleeper find the fit.

Below, we’ve broken down the different types of mattresses with recommendations for every type of sleeper. Keep reading to find the mattress you’re looking for.

Often used in: Master bedrooms, in-law suites, warmer climates

Does sleeping on a cloud sound like a dream? Then coil technology mattresses are a great place to start. These are where you find the luscious, plush mattresses that envelop you for a cloud-like experience.  

Not only will you get the most luxurious sleep of your life, but coil mattresses are also where you can find other great features like cooling technology, antibacterial properties, and even recycled materials. 

One of the top coil mattresses is the Beautyrest® Harmony. It features new innovations in support, comfort, and cooling to unlock your best sleep. It’s designed to offer additional support with pocketed coils placed within the center of your mattress to power a new support system where your body needs it most. This patented, dual-stage coil design provides additional support under heavier compression.  

 It also contains new comfort technologies, including a premium memory foam infused with charcoal that provides natural cooling and pressure relief. You can choose from breathable and eco-friendly fabric, or step-up to enhanced cooling with cool-to-the-touch technology.


Recommended for: All sleeping positions, light sleepers, athletes
Often used in: guest rooms, kid's rooms, first adult space, cooler climates

When it comes to a good night's sleep, foam mattresses take a unique approach. The wide variety of memory foams distribute weight evenly to accommodate every style of sleeper in finding a supportive night’s rest. Memory foam is also engineered to reduce motion transfer, so you and your partner won’t disturb one another throughout the night.  

Foam mattresses are known for their unbeatable price point, but they are also designed to have a longer lifespan than other mattresses. So, you can enjoy their benefits for years to come.   

While some foam mattresses are better suited for colder climates and cold sleepers, we stocked our collection with temperature regulating foam mattresses that use your own body heat to regulate temperature, keeping you in a deep sleep all night long.   

If this sounds like your dream night’s sleep, take a look at our Icomfort and Nectar foam mattresses. Their high-density foam contours to your body and helps relieve aches and pains caused by pressure points and channel heat away from the body. Hauling a mattress to your space is cause for concern, the Nectar mattresses are compressed, rolled, and shipped in a box for easy set up.


Recommended for: Back, side and combination sleepers, scoliosis

Often used in: Master bedrooms, kids rooms, guest rooms

Searching for the best of both worlds? Take a look at the hybrid mattress collection. If you haven’t guessed already, hybrid mattresses provide the luxurious sleep of innerspring coils with the relief of a foam topper for a balance of support and comfort. 

A lot of mattresses are designed specifically for back, side, or stomach sleepers. But we’ve not forgotten about combination sleepers who find themselves in every position throughout the night. If that’s you, take a look at some of our favorite hybrid mattresses. 

Starting with the Beautyrest Black mattress line. These mattresses are where technology and luxury intertwine to take you far beyond mere comfort. The high-performance fabrics play a key part. When combined with T3 Pocketed Coil Technology and premium memory foams, the luxurious fabrics create a rejuvenating sleep environment.  

Our Dreamcloud mattresses take a similar approach, where the innerspring coils sit on top of the cashmere pillow top of your dreams.
