Stearns & Foster Lux Estate Mattress Reviews

Updated July 7, 2020

The Lux Estate Collection is the mid-range of the Stearns & Foster brand, and there are six mattresses in this collection. There's also a sister collection called the Lux Estate Hybrid that combines foam and inner-spring. We've compiled our Lux Estate reviews so you can get an easy understanding of their pros and cons, as well as the details of the individual beds.

Stearns & Foster Collections

The Lux Estate Collection is among the four available collections from Stearns & Foster. View all the collection comparisons and details.

  1. Reserve Collection (top of the line)
  2. Lux Estate Hybrid Collection (mid-range with memory foam top)
  3. Lux Estate Collection (mid-range)
  4. Estate Collection (entry level)

Type of Construction

The Lux Estate Collection has a traditional innerspring mattress construction, which utilizes an advanced innerspring coil design called IntelliCoil HD. The 6 models offer a range of comforts from Luxury Firm to a super soft Luxury Plush with Euro Pillow Top options.

Stearns & Foster Lux Estate Mattress Collection Overview

As we mentioned, there are six models in the Lux Estate collection. Lux Estate adds key features over the entry-level Estate Collection; Indulge Foam HD and the IntelliCoil HD innerspring, both of which are new technology for the brand. What's interesting about Indulge Foam is that it's actually made by Tempur-Pedic which is widely regarded as the leading producer of memory foams. There are three pillow top models and they go further by adding a layer of micro coils they call IntelliCoil Micro HD.

All Lux Estate mattresses have additional layers of premium gel foams to help make the mattress soft under your body's curves. They also have a TENCEL cover fabric that actually comes from the eucalyptus plant. The fabric helps to wick away moisture. As mentioned, there are six models and they're constructed in a range of comforts from firm to soft, three of which incorporate the added puffy pillow top.

More on Lux Estate Features

Stearns and Foster Lux Estate Mattress Cutaway

  1. TENCEL Cover

    The fabric on top is called Tencel plant fiber which comes from the eucalyptus plant. Tencel is soft and stretchable, and the cover material improves airflow and wicks away moisture.

  2. Indulge HD Memory Foam

    Indulge memory foam is an advanced memory foam made by Tempur-Pedic, a top supplier of premium memory foam mattresses. It helps relieve body pressure and make the mattress more comfortable.

  3. IntelliCoil Micro

    The micro-coil layer is made of small, soft coil springs. The metal springs help provide a comfortable, conforming surface under your body. Since they are metal they will keep the same feel for a long time and are very durable.

  4. IntelliCoil HD

    The coil-in-coil design features an outer coil that is softer when the coil is first engaged and a firmer interior coil that engages to provide more support under your body as more weight is added. This design can fit 20% more coils than traditional designs.

  5. PrecisionEdge HD + Air Vent

    The edge support system makes the entire top of the mattress usable, so you can sleep right up to the edge. Airflow is enhanced with breathable pocketed sleeves.

Delivery Method

Stearns & Foster Lux Estate mattresses can be purchased from approved stores and online retailers. They are not available from Stearns and Foster directly. They’re shipped uncompressed and are delivered by home delivery services. Delivery is free and so is the removal of an old existing mattress.

More about Stearns & Foster Brand

Stearns & Foster has manufactured the most luxurious and lasting mattresses since 1846. Every Stearns & Foster mattress is built by certified craftsmen in a dedicated luxury cell, meaning that no other models can be built there. Every piece of material that goes into a Stearns & Foster mattress is tested to ensure top-notch durability. By constructing mattresses out of the best materials in the industry, they deliver unmatched comfort and quality. Their foam-encased edge contains a border rod to provide the best edge support available. Each mattress has twice-tempered, individually-wrapped, titanium alloy coils. They deliver the perfect balance of comfort and support.

Stearns and Foster became part of the Sealy Mattress Company, serving as the premium sister brand to Sealy Posturepedic. In more recent history, Tempurpedic bought Sealy. Stearns & Foster now resides in the Tempur-Sealy mattress company, based in Lexington, KY. In recent years, there has been a resurgence in the Stearns & Foster brand. Sales growth comes from continued investments in the products. Broad acceptance of the brand by luxury mattress buyers also factors into this.

Conclusion

The 2019 Lux Estate Collection offers a breadth of options ranging from firm to soft (3 beds) and doing so again with a puffy pillow top construction (3 more beds) for a total of six mattresses. The Lux Estate beds represent the heart of the Stearns & Foster luxury brand.

The softer beds tested extremely well when we studied all the models. We especially liked the Plush and Pillow Top models. Those four mattresses demonstrated exceptional contouring to create soft, pain-free sleeping surfaces. There will be no painful pressure points that would cause you to toss and turn - and these tested well with all body sizes. When it comes to the Firm and Ultra Firm mattresses, they are in fact firm beds. They didn't test as well, especially with back sleepers. But if you prefer a firm surface then the test results may not matter to you. However, if you like a medium or soft mattress then be forewarned that the firm options of this line may be too hard for you.

All these beds are relatively expensive, but they do include premium features to go along with the higher prices. These include Indulge Memory Foam, the IntelliCoil pocketed dual-stage coil system, and the Tencel cover. Those are all premium features that make a difference in the feel of the beds that we experienced in our testing. So if you are looking to go upmarket and spend more for a luxury mattress, take a close look at these beds. Quite a few mattresses from this collection deserve Recommended ratings because the beds deliver what's intended.
