The most luxurious model in the Berkeley Ergonomics pocket coil collection, the Cairo PF offers a weightless sleep experience. This is achieved by combining intelligent components, including 4,649 queen pocket coils (6,094 coils in a king mattress), with layers of French sheep's wool, camel hair, 100% natural Talalay latex and of course the unique European suspension foundation.

The Cairo PF's top layer of springs is made from a special titanium alloy wire. Titanium alloy springs are lighter and more responsive than standard steel springs, which results in higher performance. The ultra high spring count 'flows' with the body, hence the name "Posture-Flo."

The unique layering of the Cairo PF mattress allows us to keep the highly responsive pocket springs as close to the surface as possible. This delivers a tremendously unique combination of support and comfort. While we do not expressly believe in a 'one size fits all mattress' the Cairo PF is perhaps such a mattress.

Camel hair is quilted directly beneath the outer organic cotton stretch knit cover. 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 fibre while maintaining naturally fire resistant properties of wool.

To achieve the weightless feel in the Cairo PF 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.

Finish off your Berkeley Ergonomics mattress with a Formesse Bella Donna fitted sheet. Made in Germany, these special fitted sheets are stretch-knit, and super breathable. They work in perfect harmony with the high performance elastic materials found in all BE mattresses.

Suggested Foundations

We recommend a sturdy, well-ventilated slat foundation for all mattresses. Berkeley Ergonomics offer three choices. The highest performing foundation is the Berkeley Ergonomics suspension foundation.

Suspension foundations are superior to rigid bases as they absorb energy, reducing pressure points while also providing for greatly improved ergonomic alignment and support. They'll even extend the life of your mattress.

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.

All Berkeley Ergonomics mattresses are 100% compatible with electric adjustable beds.

All wood used in these three foundations comes from sustainable PEFC and FSC certified sources in Canada and Germany.

We Recommend Formesse Fitted Sheets

The highest performing fitted sheet for your Berkeley Ergonomics mattress is a Formesse Bella Donna fitted sheet. Your BE mattress features a knit organic cotton fabric outer covering, which is very stretchy and elastic. Typical sheets are woven (ie: sateen or percale), which can result in excess surface tension. Formesse sheets, Made in Germany, are different. They are stretch-knit, just like the Berkeley mattress fabric. This combination results in the most elastic, highest performing sleep surface possible today.

Knit fabrics are also more breathable than woven fabrics, which results in better temperature and humidity regulation.

Berkeley is the Toyota of Mattresses! - Review of Berkeley Ergonomics Cairo PF Luxury Natural Mattress

Several years ago, I herniated a disc in my lower back. I saw nearly every paramedical professional under the sun before I decided to try upgrading my mattress. The difference it made was unbelievable. I can't say that regular exercise and stretching did not play a major role, but having proper support for my back helped to relieve a days pain and this was noticeable after the first nights sleep. Its funny how we are all willing to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a fancy car we drive for an hour or two a day, yet we aren't willing to put a fraction of that into a bed that we will spend 4 times that on every night! Well, I'm glad I made the investment into a better sleep and an all-round happier life! TMASC has a wide variety of mattresses that should reasonably fit any budget, but I wanted to make sure I got what suited me, so I opted to spend a bit more and I am sure glad I did! Amazing value for the price. Bit on the heavy side, but they were great about having considerate delivery service that was able to set it up. Service at TMASC was phenomenal and I am a firm (no pun intended) believer in "you get what you pay for!". Money well spent. I will be going back to TMASC for all my sleep needs and will strongly gravitate towards Berkeley for life.

Amazing mattress, amazing sleep. - Review of Berkeley Ergonomics Cairo PF Luxury Natural Mattress
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!

Amazing!!! - Review of Berkeley Ergonomics Cairo PF Luxury Natural Mattress
5 out of 5 stars
Verified Buyer
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 - Review of Berkeley Ergonomics Cairo PF Luxury Natural Mattress
5 out of 5 stars
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!
