Douglas by Novosbed Cooling Gel Foam Mattress

To reap the benefits of a good night’s sleep, it goes without saying then that you need a good mattress. Best Buy can help because the Canadian made Douglas by Novosbed Cooling Gel Foam Mattress is now available online.

It’s no secret that a good night’s sleep makes you feel rested, refreshed, and ready for the day ahead. However, the importance of sleep goes way beyond making you feel energized while simultaneously banishing those dreaded under eye circles. Research shows that sleep helps improve your memory, reduce inflammation, spur creativity, lower stress, and help control the metabolism.

What is the Douglas mattress?

Douglas foam mattressThe Douglas mattress is truly an All-Canadian mattress crafted for Canadians coast-to-coast. No, this doesn’t mean it smells of maple syrup and comes with a complimentary toque, but that its look is inspired by the Rockies, it is designed in the Prairies and manufactured in the East. Add to that the fact that each Douglas mattress is made to order, and the only thing that could make it more Canadian is an unnecessary apology.

The Douglas Cooling Gel Foam Mattress is an eco-friendly, medium-firm mattress with balanced support and pressure point relief for all sleeping positions. That means that whether you’re a back sleeper, side sleeper, stomach sleeper, or all three like me, you’ll be comfortable sleeping on Douglas.


What makes the Douglas mattress different?

The Douglas isn’t just a Canadian made product that caters to multiple sleep positions. It also has a two-inches of high-quality Elastex™ cooling gel foam that is just as durable, responsive, and luxurious as high-density foam, but won’t retain heat or make you feel like your mattress is sucking you in like quicksand, which is essential for a good night’s sleep.

The foam is also made without any of the harmful, allergy-causing chemicals that are found in many Latex mattress mattresses, and uses 50% less carbon, meaning that your Douglas is lighter, more breathable, and can be delivered using less fuel.

If you’re a “hot sleeper” like me, you’ll like its washable CoolSense™ cover that is made with Natural Eucalyptus Fabric™ as it draws moisture away, leading to a cool, dry night. As a “hot sleeper,” this feature is one that immediately grabbed my attention.

The other feature that makes the Douglas a winner insofar as mattresses are concerned is its six-inch Motion Isolation Support Foam, which is essentially millions of tiny pocket coil springs that work to eliminate motion transfer between sleepers without sacrificing edge support. If you share a bed with someone else, or have a pet or child who likes to crawl into bed with you, this feature is literally the difference between staying asleep and waking up grumpy in the middle of the night.


Environmentally Conscious Mattress

In addition to the fact that Douglas mattresses’ ecoLight foam is a 4th generation memory foam that uses 50% less carbon, its CoolSense™ cover is made of Eucalyptus Fabric™, and eucalyptus trees themselves grow quickly with little water and virtually no pesticides. The trees are then turned into raw organic fibre using a 99.5% efficient closed-loop process, which produces almost zero waste. This organic fibre is then spun into durable thread that is used to create the unique cover of every Douglas mattress.


They say you should replace your mattress every seven to nine years, so if you are in the market for a new one and are looking for something that isn’t just comfortable, but environmentally friendly and Canadian made, the Douglas Cooling Gel Foam Mattress might just be the next addition to your bedroom. Every Douglas mattress comes with free shipping, a 120-night trial, and they’ll be available in Twin, Twin XL, Double/Full, King and California King size this weekend online at Best Buy.
