What to Expect From a Southerland Mattress
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
Southerland Inc. is another one of the traditional US manufacturers that has been producing mattresses for well over a century. With their headquarters in Nashville Tennessee they are unusual in that they are 100% employee-owned. Southerland made a name for quality in production of inner-spring mattresses but recently announced an agreement with the Sharper Image to make specialty mattresses in memory foam, inner spring, air and latex, plus adjustable mattresses. Here we take a quick look at the existing Southerland mattress range.
The main Southerland collections are the basic Southerland range, the Sleep Xpressions range, the American Sleep range, the Estate Collection, the Majestic gold, the Majestic Silver and the Total Protection range.
If we take a cross-section of Southerland mattresses from across these ranges we see that a queen size Sleep Xpressions Rockwell inner-spring is a 14 inch mattress that includes over 800 coils in combination with memory foam or latex foam. It costs around $900 and comes with a 12-year warranty. A queen size Singer mattress from the same range is slightly thicker, uses latex foam and costs around $1000 and a Turner will be around $1200.
In the Majestic Silver range a queen size Athens mattress is a 7.6 inches thick mattress, using around 460 coils, polyurethane foam in the comfort layers and comes with a 7-year warranty. This mattress retails for around $400.
This gives you a feel for Southerland mattresses but it is rather difficult to find much information online for such an established mattress manufacturer. The Southerland official web site has many pictures of their beds but very little detail on the individual products; likewise you may find it a struggle to find much in the way of meaningful Southerland mattress reviews.
