When the company first began its journey, they ensured that they researched the bedding industry thoroughly before offering their services to the users.

The main objective of their research was to ensure that the users get the best quality bed with the best price, and that they do not face any inconvenience while buying and using their mattress from this company.

Also, it seeks to make users happier and healthier through rejuvenated sleep, and is grounded in values that safeguard users as well as the environment.

The king and queen size bed will offer the best comfort, support, and luxury, which is totally worth your money that is spent on buying the mattress from this company.

The design, technology, and the materials used in the mattress will ensure that the users are able to sleep in a healthier and cleaner bed.

In case the users wish to change the feel of their new mattress, they can simply replace the top layer of the mattress to change its feel and this will just cost them a fraction cost of buying a new bed altogether.

While there are tons of beds-in-a-box suppliers, Indigo is unique as the company provides the most healthiest sleep ever.

How Firm is it?

The comfort layers of the mattress are crafted with two different comfort options in one bed, suited to help back pain.

The top latex layer of the bed is rated 5.4 on the firmness scale and the gel memory foam layer is rated 5.8 on the firmness scale.

So, you do not have to settle for just one firmness option as the comfort layers are soft on one side and firm on the other.

You can easily flip its top layer in just seconds to totally alter the feel as well as the firmness of the mattress.

In the size Queen, these layers are split down the center with flippable comfort for you as well as your sleep partner.

Thus, you have a choice to simply pop the mattress cover and flip the comfort layer from the supportive and soft gel memory foam, which is the blue side to a specially designed firmer side which is the white side of the mattress.

If you purchase Queen size or up, you will get two comfort layers so that you along with your partner can select the bed feel each one of you prefers – so now no more compromise when it comes to your comfort.

How Many Layers does it have?

Indigo is the only patented dual feel bed that is easily flipped for a firm or soft sleep experience.

The top of the mattress is made up of 2 inches of the highest rated natural latex along with 2 inches of premium gel memory foam.

The base is made up of 6 inches of support layer.

How is Motion Transfer and Sinkage?

The mattress fares quite well in this category.

The latex as well as cool gel memory foam layers of the Indigo bed have been well known for offering motion isolation and eliminating chronic shoulder, hip, and back pain.

As far as the edge support is concerned, you will not have any issues while sleeping.

As this is an all foam bed, if you are sitting on the edge of the bed you may experience a little less edge support.

Does it Sleep Hot?

The bed does not sleep hot, thus offering a cooler sleep surface for a refreshed and comfortable sleep.

The gel memory foam layer as well as the natural latex layer comfortably dissipates the natural heat of the body, thus letting you sleep cool.

In addition to this, the cover of the bed is cool and fresh to the touch.

You will feel cradled, cool, and fresh when you wake up the next morning.

Does it Have any Smell?

The clean chemistry of the Indigo mattress keeps you safe even when you are sleeping.

It offers the highest-rated materials available on the market, with absolutely no harmful chemicals.

pulling the sheet on an Indigo Classic mattressUnlike most other similar beds, once you open the Indigo mattress you can lay down instantly, and there is no need to wait for any smell to dissipate as there is zero off-gassing, so you can use it immediately.

The mattress is crafted in the US, and the manufacturers leave out noxious chemicals like modacrylic. However, the company recently admitted that they use fiberglass as flame retardant, although in a safer form than most other brands.

The manufacturers ensure that scraps are transformed into carpet padding instead of being thrown into landfills.

They also take the extra step of curing their foam for a complete week before it is available for production, thereby eliminating the off-gassing of the Indigo bed, above and beyond what is needed in the CertiPUR-US certification.

Does it Require a Foundation?

A slatted or solid platform is very compatible with the Indigo bed.

While you can use a box spring, this company does not recommend it as the springs in the box spring may damage the foam over time.

However, any standard adjustable frame or platform is an ideal option, or you can place it on the floor as well.

If you need a higher box spring, or want to use your present set up that consists of a box spring, you can simply purchase a bunkie board which is a solid surface meant to be put between the box spring and your Indigo bed.

What type of Cover does it have?

The Indigo bed comes with a plush cover which is so soft that you won’t even require a sheet.

It gives just enough lift between you and your bed for a deep, cool, and comfortable sleep.

It is also easily removable so that you can get to the inside of the bed and clean it from within, in order to get rid of any built up dead skin, dust-mites, and allergens.

What is the Best Way to Care for the Indigo Sleep Mattress?

If you take good care of your bed everyday, your mattress will have a longer life.

In order to maintain good hygiene of your new bed, you must protect it with a cotton cover or quilted mattress pad that will not only keep the bed clean but also extend its life.

cleaning the classic mattressThe company suggests to shake as well as aerate the bed daily, where 15 minutes will be sufficient to clean any accumulated moisture and dust.

Once a year, you must aerate the bed by a window for a few hours.

You must also vacuum it once a month in order to get rid of dust mites that are not cleaned just by aerating the bed, however, you must not use any liquid.

The company also recommends to avoid making the bed as soon as you get up so you can give it some time to ventilate.

Furthermore, you must rotate your bed periodically from the head to the feet and vice versa.

In this way any stress supported by your bed is distributed on both sides, so the wear is slow and avoids any deformation.


The mattress is crafted to last a lifetime.

It is manufactured in the US, thus making sure that the best quality materials are employed in its construction.

When a section of this bed becomes worn, you can just replace that particular part at a very minimal price instead of replacing the entire bed, which can further extend the life of the original bed indefinitely, and also significantly mitigate the number of used beds that are being thrown away and harming the environment.

Since you can replace these layers at a fraction of the cost of the original price of the bed, this will also save you money and keep parts of your bed out of landfills.

Size and Shipping

The company offers free shipping in the US and the bed will ship within 2 working days.

When the bed is shipped, you will be intimated a tracking number so that you can trace your order.

When unpacking the bed, you must leave it for a couple of hours in some ventilated place, so that if there is some odor it will disappear in a few hours.

As soon as you cut its plastic vacuum seal, the bed instantly restores to its original shape.

Also, you can feel the superior quality premium materials the moment you lay on this bed, and thus it is worth every penny and you still get a tremendous value.

100 Nights Risk Free Sleep Trial and Guarantee

The company offers you 100 nights sleep trial, which implies that you have 100 nights from the date of delivery to experience your new bed and try it out at the comfort of your own house.

The company suggests you to sleep on your Indigo bed for at least 30 nights in order to allow your body to adjust to the new mattress.

However, if during this trial period, you decide you are not completely happy with it, you can simply let them know and they will arrange for some local charitable facility to fetch your bed from you.

Once the bed is retrieved, they will quickly start the return process.

They will contact some pickup company and you will receive a call within a reasonable span of time from the party picking up the bed to arrange pickup.

The amount of time before actual pickup will depend on where you reside, and on when the company arranges with the disposal company in order to pick it up.

Also, in order to be eligible for this return, your new mattress must be undamaged and clean.

You must scan the receipt, email it to support, and post their verification of the donation they will issue a full refund to you.

This receipt must specify that it is an Indigo bed, show the name, date, and contact details of the party picking it up.


The support layer of the Indigo mattress is covered by a 10 year limited warranty and the comfort layer of the bed is covered by a 5 year limited warranty.

In addition to this, the cover of the bed is covered by a 2 year limited warranty.
