 Summary List Placement

Parachute is known for its cozy bedding and bath linens, but you can now count mattresses — well, to start, just a singular mattress — among its offerings.

The Mattress, which ranges in size from Twin to California King, is made with wool, organic cotton, and tempered steel for a foam-free mattress.
During testing, Its medium-firm support provided me with the perfect combination of comfort and breathability, and helped me sleep more soundly through the night. 
With prices ranging from $1,299 to $2,199, the mattresses aren’t cheap, but the craftsmanship and quality are worth the investment.

Chances are you’ve heard this one before: Good things take time.

Such was the case when it came to the development of the Parachute’s The Mattress, a first from a company known for its luxury sheets and blankets. It took two years and a partnership with a 4th-generation mattress manufacturer for this mattress to enter its final form. After testing it with my partner, I can say it was worth the wait to get it right, and get it right is exactly what Parachute has done.

This foam and latex-free luxury mattress has the perfect combination of comfort, support, and breathability that’s kept me sleeping soundly through the night without overheating.

Delivery and first impressions

Usually, this wouldn’t be your typical bed-in-a-box situation where you’re left to lug your new mattress into the bedroom on your own. The mattress would arrive via white glove delivery, and you can elect to have your old mattress safely removed. But due to the novel coronavirus, Parachute has temporarily suspended both services and will offer contactless delivery via FedEx.

I tested the mattress in early 2019 so I was able to experience the usual white glove delivery. Once my order was placed and the mattress was ready, I was contacted by the delivery service to set up a time for delivery.

Some may argue that it’s inconvenient to have to be present in order to receive a mattress — especially in our case because the service where we live doesn’t deliver on weekends. However, eliminating the hassle of having to set up the mattress on our own, and being able to unload an old mattress we’d never use again made up for having to wait around for the delivery.

No off-gassing is required as the mattress is both latex and foam-free so I was able to roll around immediately. As soon as I laid down, it was clear that the wait was worth it. Both comfort and support are present here, and the handcrafted quality could be seen in details like the hand-sewn tufts, which allow the mattress to be held together without any toxic adhesives or chemicals.
