I’ve owned Thuma’s The Mattress for 3 years now, and it feels as good as new. You do not want a single instrument to assemble this wood mattress body. The corporate makes use of conventional Japanese joinery methods, and it took me about quarter-hour to place the entire thing collectively. Meaning disassembly and reassembly after I needed to transfer was really easy—there are however two thumb screws on the high and backside edges of the body, which you’ll hand-screw in as soon as the whole lot else is in place.
Extra stunning is how sturdy it’s. I’ve gone by means of so many mattress frames earlier than the Thuma, and after a 12 months or two, there’s normally a damaged slat or bent steel rod right here and there. Or the slats hold falling down, so you need to do this factor the place you pull the mattress over your head as you attempt to shove them again in place (simply me?). It does not creak and by no means slides round. The froth Pillowboard is an extra expense, but it surely’s comfortable. Thuma has since added a wooden headboard, which is pricier, however that is what I will in all probability improve to subsequent, because it completes the look. Part of the issue is how costly this complete mattress body is (the worth has jumped since I first bought it), but when it helps, the Thuma is produced from repurposed wooden, and it is UL GreenGuard Gold Certified, assembly low chemical emissions. —Julian Chokkattu
