Chattam and Wells is one of the best luxury brands I've ever tested, and the Chattam and Wells Franklin Euro Top is one of the best mattresses I've ever tested. The attention to detail, quality of components, and old world craftsmanship makes this a truly wonderful brand. If you like a soft, enveloping level of comfort, as well as a substantial, supportive underlying feel, this mattress is most likely perfect for you. WIth a comfort scale rating of 8, the Franklin provides deep down initial comfort, yet avoids feeling spongy or marshmallow-like. Our comfort scale goes from 1 to 10, with 1 being the firmest, and 10, the softest.
One of the best parts about Chattam and Wells is their attention to detail, that starts right in the quilt. The Chattam Quilt uses Tencel fibers to help wick away moisture, a layer of Joma wool to help manage temperature, and 2 layers of High Density Convoluted Quilt Foam to contour to the curves of your body. The 4-way Stretch Knit Fabric easily stretches, for consistent comfort, and the hand-tufted construction keeps comfort layers from shifting over time, for excellent durabily. Hand-tufting is a process only used in the finest of mattresses because of the time it takes to do it by hand. Comfort layers include 2 layers of natural latex, one of the best comfort materials ever used in mattresses. Why is latex the best? It provides outstanding pressure relief, to help reduce tossing and turning. It pushes back against the body, while contouring, for added support. It's anti-microbial and anti-dustmite, for a healthier sleep environment, and it's one of the most durable materials ever created. Another unique feature found in the Franklin, is the Nano Coil layer. With this layer, the tiny Nano Coils add a buoyant layer near the surface of the mattress, which provides delicate contouring to cradle your body as you rest. A Joma wool blanket layer is another great touch. In this layer, each Joma wool fiber is individually crimped to act like a little spring. The 1” thick blanket provides a natural and supportive base for the comfort layers of the mattress.
Back support is provided through a combination of 2 innerspring systems, working together. The 450 Hinge-Flex Plus Knotted Offset Coil provides added life to the mattress and an exceptionally strong and quiet core due to the tighter-sewn helical wire. The offset coil is sensitive to body contours, improving sleeping comfort. The Chattam Core is manufactured from high-tensile wire and fabric encased for independent motion. This provides good body conforming support and reduces motion transfer between partners at night. Feel free to sleep all the way to the edge, because the Chattam Edge, a combination of High density foam rails and a portrait edge, offers greater edge-to-edge sleeping with no roll-off. An optional 18 slat foundation is made following the standards of old, proving at least one company still makes em like they used to. High quality handles make moving the mattress easy, and are most welcome on a stout mattress like this.
Overall, the Chattam and Wells Franklin Euro Top is one of best mattresses available on our site, if you enjoy a softer feel. From the quilt to the foundation, this mattress is the epitome of luxury craftsmanship, and easily outperforms other mattresses with higher price tags. If you're looking for the best, this is one of them. It also comes backed by a 10 year non-prorated warranty.
