I’ve owned Thuma’s The Mattress for 3 years now, and it feels nearly 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 strategies, and it took me about quarter-hour to place the entire thing collectively. Which means disassembly and reassembly once I needed to transfer was really easy—there are however two thumb screws on the prime and backside edges of the body, which you’ll hand-screw in as soon as all the things else is in place.
Extra shocking is how sturdy it’s. I’ve gone by way of so many mattress frames earlier than the Thuma, and after a 12 months or two, there’s normally a damaged slat or bent metallic rod right here and there. Or the slats maintain 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 a further expense, however it’s comfortable. Thuma has since added a wooden headboard, which is pricier, however that is what I am going to most likely improve to subsequent, because it completes the look. Part of the issue is how costly this entire mattress body is (the worth has jumped since I first bought it), but when it helps, the Thuma is constituted of repurposed wooden, and it is UL GreenGuard Gold Certified, assembly low chemical emissions. —Julian Chokkattu
