SPRING TO LIFE
Saatva was the first online brand to offer premium innerspring mattresses direct to consumers when it launched in 2010. The company manufactures mattresses at 19 factories across the U.S. and delivers them locally to minimize carbon footprint; buyers are offered a 180-night trial period. Its best seller, the Classic Innerspring Mattress features a base containing 416 stainless-steel coils to prevent sagging, a second layer of 884 individually pocketed coils to cradle the body, a layer of high-density memory foam for back support and an optional three-inch pillow top covered in organic cotton. The mattress is available in three levels of firmness and two height options. Adult-size mattresses range from $1,000 to $4,500; frames are sold separately. A two-story Logan Circle showroom is coming to 1714 14th Street, NW, with a targeted November debut. saatva.com
A family-owned Swedish company founded in 1926, Duxiana handcrafts beds with multiple layers of interlocking, continuous-coil springs that ergonomically adjust to the weight and contours of a sleeper’s body. A king-size model contains more than a mile of high-tensile steel wire with up to 4,180 interconnected bed springs. The Dux 6006 features dual bottom layers that provide deep suspension and a middle layer for lumbar support. An upper layer zips open to reveal six “cassettes” that can be positioned to customize support for legs, hips and shoulders. And a tufted, removable pad tops off the bed with a final layer of cushioning. All models boast an integrated base made of slow-growth Swedish pine; legs come in a variety of styles and sizes. Duxiana beds range from $4,100 to $21,950. The company’s Georgetown showroom is open by appointment only. duxiana.com

Choose a power-adjusted base or platform bed, sold separately by Avocado, or use a frame of your choice. Avocado mattresses range in price from $999 to $5,599. The company offers buyers a one-year trial and donates 90 percent of returns to charity. avocadogreenmattress.com
Hästens has been making bespoke luxury beds since 1852. The family-owned Swedish company still carries on the tradition it started six generations ago of using horsehair in its beds for the natural, pliable support it imparts and for its inherent breathability and anti-bacterial properties. During the manufacturing process, ethically sourced horsehair is washed in boiling water, rinsed, spun, disinfected and then heated to 284 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure that it’s clean, pristine and allergen-free. In addition to horsehair, the Vividus mattress contains layers of cotton and wool atop two layers of springs customized to suit the end users’ needs and preferences. The classic check fabric, available in multiple colorways, helps craftsmen confirm the alignment of their work; the frame is made of redwood from northern Sweden. Beds range in price from $9,895 to $879,900 at the Hästens showroom in Tysons Galleria. hastens.com
