Stearns & Foster Lux Estate Collection

Lux Estate is one of two collections revised by Stearns & Foster for 2014. The other one is the Estate Collection. Along with these, two other collections were created, Signature and Lux Estate Hybrid.


The Lux Estate Collection shares all the key features of the Estate Collection. It also enhances some of these features and adds others, as follows:
* Hand tufting
* Twice as much memory foam as Estate
* Silk and Cashmere Infused Cover
* Latex Specialty Foam
* Cotton & wool insulator

QUILT - The cover fabric of Lux Estate mattresses is silk and cashmere blended with Outlast, a space age temperature-regulating material. This is quilted with Stearns & Foster's PrimaCool aerated gel memory foam. S&F cites the breathablility of this quilt as well as its ability to warm or cool the sleeper as needed. This quilt is also hand-tufted to the underlying comfort layers to make the mattress components more stable, an important consideration when dealing with several layers.

COMFORT LAYERS - Four Stearns & Foster proprietary foams are used in the comfort layers of Lux Estate models: PrimaCool™ Gel Memory Foam, PrimaSense™ Gel Foam, PrimaCore™ Comfort Foam and Latex Specialty Foam. Together they cradle, cushion, absorb shock, and dampen motion transfer. The gel's cooling is to keep memory foam from building up heat. Layering the foams graduates the support from softest at the top to the firmness of the coils.

Beneath the comfort layers is a cotton and wool insulator, protecting the foam and the coils from each other.

SUPPORT - A Stearns & Foster IntelliCoil® Encased Coil (dual pocket coilinnerspring unit supports a Lux Estate mattress. These coils are a "two-in-one" design, a taller outer coil and a shorter inner coil made from one wire. This design was patented by Sealy. The outer coil, with only five turns, has a soft response, while the inner coil, with seven turns, provides deep support. The softer response conforms to lighter persons, and the firmer response supports heavier ones.

EDGE SYSTEM - The entire sleeping surface of Lux Estate models is made usable by the StabiLux™ Edge System. This includes a perimeter rod for the top and foam encasement for the coils. It also includes the PrimaVent airflow system, which has solid brass air vents on the sides and ends of the mattress.

Comfort Levels

Stearns & Foster lists an explanation of the comfort levels for their mattresses:
Ultra Firm For customers who want a stiff surface support with just a hint of softness for comfort.
Luxury Firm For customers who want a stiff surface support with quilted softness for comfort.
Luxury Cushion Firm For customers who want a substantial surface support with additional quilted softness for comfort.
Luxury Plush For customers who are looking for an enveloping softness with deep support.


The recommended foundations for the Lux Estate Collection are the Stearns & Foster Foundation and the Reflexion 7 Adjustable Power Base. The S&F Foundation is available in two heights: 9" Standard and 5" Low Profile. The Reflexion is made by Leggett & Platt.

Warranty and Availability

According to the manufacturer, "All Stearns & Foster mattresses come with a 10-year warranty." Lux Estate Collection models are available through several retailers. Most retailers are still showing previous models of this collection online, but more will carry new models as they sell out the older ones.  Different retailers have their own names for Stearns & Foster mattresses, which makes comparing models a distinct challenge.
