Is your mattress uncomfortable or just old? Having a good comfortable one is so important, but buying a bed in Singapore might be a little more tricky than in your home country. Typically, mattresses in Asia are a lot firmer, and the Queen, King and others sizes can be different here. Many beds are shorter in length too. Since you’ll want both you and your sheets to fit, take the exact measurements of your bed frame before you shop! Then, spend time trying the mattress for support and softness. We spoke to a few furniture stores in Singapore that specialise in helping you snooze more peacefully. You can customise the firmness, adjust to your preferred size and, in some cases, even try the mattress at home first.
Walking up the stairs and into the European Bedding showroom, located in a renovated Tiong Bahru shophouse, you enter a totally zen space, like the bedroom of your dreams!
European Bedding carries organic latex mattresses and pillows, FSC-certified bed bases and bamboo sheets. Their Heveya mattresses are made of 100 percent organic latex. Available in three densities across three different heights – each mattress is encased in a handy removable cover made of soft bamboo fibre and filled with organic cotton padding. You can also customise their king-size mattresses to allow for a combination of different firmness levels within one cover.
Benefits of a Heveya natural organic latex mattress:
- It has an inherent elastic property that offers comfort and support. It can conform to the body curve, promoting proper spinal alignment and pressure distribution, and improving blood circulation – perfect for a healthy sleep.
- The latex used in European Bedding mattresses is made from the sap of organic latex trees that haven’t had chemical fertilisers or pesticides poured on them as they were growing – so no harmful chemicals and off-gassing.
- With its natural open-cell structure, latex offers excellent air circulation. Added pinholes allow for increased airflow for a comfortable sleeping temperature.
- The cover is also easily removable and can be dry-cleaned for a more hygienic sleep.
If that’s not enough to convince you, the store also offers size customisation and can craft ultra-wide mattresses for families or ones to suit your home country size. What’s more, you can enjoy a 100-day trial; so, if you discover that your mattress is too soft or too firm when you get home, European Bedding will work with you to find the firmness that fits.

Danish Design Co
Scandinavian furniture store Danish Design Co stocks luxury bedding and accessories from Swedish brand Duxiana. The store carries several of the brand’s models including the DUX 1001, DUX 3003 and the ultimate DUX 8008. “We chose to introduce the Duxiana brand as the company has been researching and developing its sleep technology for over 90 years,” Rhiannon Hills from Danish Design.
Many of the mattresses offer the patented DUX Pascal system. This comprises six interchangeable spring cassettes to allow you and your partner to individually customise your side of the bed to suit your sleeping style. All DUX beds feature Swedish steel springs with nearly twice as many as an ordinary bed. This gives better contouring for the body, reducing pressure points and improving circulation.
The beds are also customisable, and customers can choose from various European bed sizes. Some models include adjustable lumbar support too and are toxin-free.
Benefits of the DUX:
- Studies by prestigious Swedish medical university the Karolinska Institute have shown that DUX users not only reach the deep-sleep stage faster, but they remain there longer. Deep sleep is beneficial for muscle healing and repair.
- The continuous coil system in the mattress contours and adjusts to body shapes and movements, offering flexibility and support.
