Much more than a mattress, HORIZONTAL is a complete sleeping system. Primary components include a patented interlocking  hardwood bed frame, duel layered independent suspension system, high density latex padding, cruelty free wool padding, natural wool fire barrier, woven and knitted  cottons. 99.8% biodegradable and designed with replaceable parts to last a human lifetime, this bed is unique. Nonetheless, it is informative to compare.



NATUREPEDIC EOS PILLOWTOP, 7” STD FOUNDATION

We know Naturpedic comes from a good place. They use many of the same natural materials as Horizontal…respect! However, Naturpedic’s bed/mattress continues to mimic conventional petroleum bed/mattress design, with multiple mattresses stacked like a layer cake, with an enclosed foundation below. Remember “The Princess and The Pea” ? No matter how thick you pile up that padding, the bed does not get any more comfortable.

Thick, bulky and dense bed/mattresses inhibit healthy air flow; and those coil springs below are a problem. Find out why here.

Naturpedic’s closest comparable offering costs about $654 USD more than Horizontal.

AVOCADO GREEN BED PILLOWTOP, ECO BED FRAME

Avocado says they stopped using the  Fire Retardant chemical formulation, “hydrated silica”, in June 2019. However, in June 2020, Avocado acknowledged they still use silica in some bed/mattresses. Silica is known to cause eye and skin irritation. Avocado does use Dunlop latex, just like Horizontal. But inside, Avocado is mostly metal springs. Today, with made man electro-magnetic fields (EMFs) now vastly exceeding Nature’s limits, Do you really want to spend 1/3 of your life sleeping on an  ‘antenna’?

Avocado describes it’s bed frame as “rustic”. True, and not nearly as beauteous or substantial as Horizontal’s interlocking Ash hardwood bed frame. Avocado’s closest comparable costs about the same as Horizontal, but won’t last as long.

CASPER WAVE HYBRID, PLATFORM BED FRAME

Like nearly all conventional bed/mattresses, the mattress industry’s Poster Boy, Casper, is made from oily petrochemicals. Toluene di-isocyanate, who-knows-what chemical fire retardant brew of the moment, polyurethane foam gels, memory foam, and always, other undisclosed chemicals. Unlike its namesake friendly ghost, Casper and cohorts are environmentally terrifying.

Casper describes ‘Platform’ as being made from,“..the same stuff planes and rocketships are made of, so you know it will last.”. And yet, Platform’s warranty limit is only 5 years. So why is Casper on this list? Because Casper’s own prices prove that for about only  $449 USD more, you could sleep on a Horizontal Bed your entire life. Reduce, Rejuvenate, and Raise you expectations!

DUXIANA DUX 1001 XUPPORT

Duxiana is a well regarded bed maker. No doubt, in 1926 coil springs were the best choice, but human circumstances have changed a lot. So many springs. So many layers of springs. In fact, up to 2 miles of metal inside a Dux bed! That burns a lot of carbon. We question the wisdom of making a bed in this way, in this time of Climate Breakdown. And why must Dux’s ‘Pascal’ comfort system be contained in oily polyurethane foam? An otherwise materially ‘clean’ bed contradicts its commitment to environmental probity by relying on petroleum and metal. 

Just like Horizontal, Duxiana uses Dunlop latex. Duxiana’s closest comparable bed costs about $1,833 USD more than Horizontal.

Price Calculation Methodology:

  1. All prices have been calculated and recorded from the public  information provided on the websites of the Companies identified. They include their regularly advertised retail prices, shipping charges and/or in-home set up charges when applied by or recommended by the Company being compared. For consistency, the mattress recycling fees and sales taxes calculated above are based on a typical delivery address in a major city in the State of California.
  2. In accordance with United States law, American customers of Horizontal are not charged sales tax because Horizontal does not have a ‘sales tax nexus’ within the United States.
  3. In US dollars, some minor changes in Horizontal prices may display or express as small discrepancies, due to daily currency fluctuations between the Canadian and US dollars.
  4. All prices are accurate based on the information made public by the Companies being compared at time of this publication. From time to time Horizontal will update these comparisons.

ESSENTIA DORMEUSE FIOR, VERTEBASE 2.0

Counting all, including 3 models with additional thickness options, Essentia offers 13 choices; even before thinking about bed sizes. The Opus, The Dormeuse Fior, The Tatami, The Statami… what’s next? The Pastrami? This Deli sausage approach comes with sale prices on all beds, all the time. After two years secret shopping Essentia online and in-store, we have yet to find a ‘regular’ regular price. So we quote Essentia’s ‘sale’ prices, because it appears these are the real prices. Available in major centres, Essentia’s ‘memory foam’ latex is some kind of latex, but not the kind of latex we would wish to offer.

The Vertebase 2.0 is just a very basic wooden box with rigid slats.  Essentia’s closest comparable costs about $1,217 CAD more than Horizontal.
