The Birch and the Birch Luxe natural mattresses have similar designs, combining organic cotton, organic wool, and latex comfort layers for a premium natural product. The Birch Luxe, though, does include a few key upgraded components.
The Birch Luxe uses an enhanced coil base with zoned lumbar support, full perimeter edge support, and an increased coil count to provide incredible support and durability. The Birch Luxe also uses a medium-firm Pulse Latex pressure relief layer rather than the Talalay latex used in the standard Birch model. This Pulse Latex provides more breathability and less motion transfer across the mattress. Both models are designed to provide excellent pressure relief for your hips and shoulders in side sleeping positions as well as durable support for back or stomach sleeping positions.
The Birch Luxe also includes a 1/2 inch layer of organic cashmere blend to promote breathability and moisture wicking that will help keep you cool while you sleep. The organic cashmere layer is one of three distinct comfort layers in the Birch Luxe (compared with one comfort layer in the Birch) maximizing its airflow and breathability.
The Birch Luxe Natural Mattress is approximately 11.5 inches tall, compared with 11 inches for the standard Birch model. Both models include six certifications, including GOTs, Greenguard Gold, Fair Trade, Forest Stewardship Counsel, and more.
