1 - Although California King is available in Canada, this size only makes up approximately 10% of our king mattress sales.
2 - Super king sized mattresses are available from Vispring, makers of hand crafted pocket spring mattresses since 1901. Super king bedding including sheets and duvets are available from St Genève, Canadian luxury specialists.
Nearly all mattress sizes are rounded up. For example a Twin bed in real-world dimensions is usually 38 x 74" or a Double is 53 x 74". Queen and King are almost always 79 inches long. Most mattresses today are still primarily hand made, which will always lead to variances. Foam mattresses tend to adhere to sizing guidelines more accurately than spring mattresses.
Square, rectangle, round, cut corners to fit antique four poster beds, we're well suited to work with our manufacturing partners to provide these unique requirements. Our hand crafted luxury natural mattress range from Berkeley Ergonomics, Obasan and Vispring allow for just about any possibility.
Our custom mattress category is an excellent starting point for obtaining ideas and approximate pricing on special sized natural mattresses.
Our partner suppliers are able to craft a mattress in just about any of these uncommon mattress dimensions. With these sizes it is critical to know that there are two distinct choices available to consumers in Canada:
- An inexpensive polyurethane foam mattress cut and upholstered to the sizing required. A mattress made with these materials would usually cost less than $500, regardless of how large. This type of mattress is best sourced from your local foam upholstery shop.
- A high quality, hand crafted mattress from our carefully curated range of mattress brands including Berkeley Ergonomics, Green Sleep, Obasan and Vispring. Uncommon mattresses made to order start from the low $1,000's in one of the smaller sizes listed below, to the low $2,000's for a very large size such as a king waterbed.

It is not uncommon for a particular mattress to not match up exactly to a size listed above. As many aspects of building a mattress are still done by hand, there will always be variations in sizing from one mattress to the next.
Often times, mattresses may measure as much as one or two inches shorter or narrower than the "official" dimensions. This is considered normal.
