Frequently asked questions

Where are you based?

Just outside Cambridge, approx. 50 miles to the north east of London.

Where are the mattresses shipped from?

Just outside Cambridge, approx. 50 miles to the north east of London.

How many mattresses are there in your range?

Just one. After many years making and selling mattresses, most designed just to protect the manufacturer or the retailer, we decided to shake things up; a mattress for the modern person. We know what makes a mattress most comfortable and supportive. We’ve applied our knowledge and experience to design and make the one comfortable mattress that will universally appeal. We won’t make the usual outlandish statements about the cheapest mattress or hybrid mattresses or the best mattress in the world or the most comfortable mattress in the world. We’ll just go about our business.

What are your influences?

With some family roots based in Scandinavia and a professional career working for Scandinavian bed and mattress manufacturers and a love of hygge, the Danish mindset for warmth and cosiness, it was easy to build our vision on a Scandinavian ideal and approach to furniture design.

What other products do you have?

Presently, our HÜGGE range also features a wonderful, squishy pillow and a comfortably cool mattress protector. We’re also developing our own sheets which will fit seamlessly into the HÜGGE brand.

About the HÜGGE Mattress

What is the best foundation for the mattress?

Any supportive flat surface works, from the floor to the elaborately designed slatted bed frames. Just make sure that the base is not damaged or is unable to evenly distribute weight. Also, make sure it is rated to handle the combined weight of the mattress plus the bodies you put in it.

How does the zoned bottom layer work?

Everybody likes to sleep in his or her own way. A sleep specialist we worked with claimed the best position was on your back; followed by your side, then last resort on your stomach. Not everyone agrees. What is commonly agreed is that your shoulders and your hips tend to be the most prominent parts of your body. Therefore, in a five-zoned mattress, there are two softer zones, approximately where your shoulders and hips are. This allows them to sink in a little while the firmer areas of the mattress support the other parts of your body. It’s a trick we learned working for a very expensively priced manufacturer. We want to bring such luxury mattress thinking into a more affordable price point.

Will I feel my partner moving about in bed?

We’ve designed the mattress so that movements are very isolated. Of course, if you’re perched on a very spring base, you’ll feel overall movement, but that’s more down to the laws of physics than the way mattress core is behaving.

What happens to my mattress at the end of its life?

While we do not presently offer a recycling service, it is possible to have all parts of the mattress sent for recycling and re-use. For example, the foam can be recycled into furniture backing, carpet underlay.

Will my mattress solve my back pain?

HÜGGE has not undertaken any specific tests and is not designed as a medical device. However, reviews from customers so far have claimed to ease their discomfort.

What certification does my mattress have?

All of the foam HÜGGE uses is CertiPur™ certified and audited by Europur. In addition, the mattress complies with applicable UK standards (BS 7177:2008 & A1:2011 Low Hazard) tested at FIRA.

How deep is the HÜGGE mattress?

The HÜGGE mattress is 25cm deep, giving you the comfort and support you deserve Ü

How firm is the HÜGGE mattress?

Firmness for any mattress is quite subjective, we feel that we're on the slightly softer side of firm - 6.5/10 on the firmness scale Ü
