The most luxurious model in the Berkeley Ergonomics pocket coil collection, the Cairo offers a weightless sleep experience. This is achieved by combining intelligent components, including 3,112 queen pocket coils (4,018 coils in a king mattress), with layers of organic wool, camel hair, 100% natural Talalay latex and of course the unique European suspension foundation.

The unique layering of the Cairo mattress allows us to keep the highly responsive steel springs as close to the surface as possible for maximum support in a very comfortable mattress. While we do not expressly believe in a 'one size fits all mattress' the Cairo is the closest thing to it that we have ever been able to offer. This has made the Cairo a best seller for our stores for years.

Unique to the Cairo mattress, camel hair is quilted directly beneath the outer organic cotton shell. Subjected to a climate which can be boiling hot during the day, and freezing cold at night, camel hair regulates temperature and humidity better than any other natural material.

To achieve the weightless feel in the Cairo mattress, Berkeley combines layer-upon-layer of hand crafted goodness, alternating between European pocket coils and Talalay latex. The result is pure luxury, and one of the most comfortable mattresses available today at any price point.

Suggested Foundations

We recommend a sturdy, well-ventilated slat foundation for all mattresses. Berkeley Ergonomics offer three choices, in addition to any Green Sleep, Sleeptek or Vispring foundation. The best bases are active suspensions (such as the Berkeley Suspension, or Green Sleep and Vispring bases).

Suspension foundations are superior to rigid bases as they absorb energy, reducing pressure points while also providing for greatly improved ergonomic alignment and support.

Berkeley also offer a 2 ⅜" slat frame which will fit in most platform beds, allowing you to benefit from the suspension slats and their enhanced ergonomics when a platform bed would not normally fit a box spring.

For those looking to have an electric adjustable bed without sacrificing air circulation or support,

5 out of 5 stars
My husband and I were recently looking for a cleaner alternative to our current mattress. The experience at The Mattress & Sleep Company was fantastic-- Christo encouraged me to try many different options within the store, complete with pillow choices, as well. We decided on the Berkeley Cairo and we have had such wonderful, restorative sleep since then! I'm currently eight months pregnant with twins and I have been able to sleep through the night since getting the Cairo. It's truly a great mattress for someone interested in a pillow top-like option that provides nice support. We couldn't be happier with the purchase. Thank you, Christo, and the team at TM&SC!

Firstly I have to say the customer service was absolutely amazing! I've never felt so welcome at a nother establishment or dealt with such knowledgable sales staff. The bed that Daniel helped my wife and I pick out is great. I have had the best sleep of my life. Although the bed is quite soft it is remarkably supportive giving me the best of both worlds. The only bad point about this bed is that we can't sleep on any other when we travel. Lol.

Sleep investment

Verified Buyer
We are so pleased with the investment we made with our new mattress. At first, we weren't noticing anything exceptional about this new luxurious mattress. It wasn't until a week passed that I noticed how rested I actually was, it became a dramatic improvement to the rest from my old mattress. I used to wake up stiff and some serious hip pain from sleeping on my side. Now I don't spend my nights tossing and turning and I don't notice my partner moving or leaving the bed. We both now have fabulous solid nights of rest with no stiffness or pain in the morning. We love the temperature and humidity control with natural fibers and are really seeing it now that summer has arrived. This is an outstanding mattress and we appreciate the great service and knowledge we received in store. Thank you so much!
