Kingsdown Handley Collection

The Handley Collection of luxury innerspring mattresses by Kingsdown began as a subset of the Tradition Collection. According to a news article, this collection is named after its creator, bedding designer Joyce Handley.

A. 2,520 (Q) Wrapped coils: stacked coil units work together for customized support and conformance
B. Memory Foam and Latex: conforming support and pressure-relief for deeper sleep
C. Joma Wool: resilient pressure relief and cushioning comfort, naturally wicks away moisture

What sets the Handley Collection apart, first within the Tradition Collection, and now as its own line, is the innerspring. Tradition models are supported by open coils*, Handley models by wrapped pocket coils. This is a stacked coil innerspring, two layers of 1,260 coils separated by an insulator pad. There is another pad atop the innerspring. The coils in one layer are not necessarily the same height as those in the other layer. In one model, Hunter Ridge, the lower coils are twice the height of the upper ones (7" and 3½").
*Bonnell, offset or continuous coils

Two current models, Wentworth Farms and Hunters Ridge, are one-sided no-flip mattresses, so there is a base pad underneath. This is not to rule out two-sided models in the future.

The role of pocket coils is pressure relief and spinal support. Each coil responds to the weight and shape of a sleeper's body indpendently. This spreads support evenly under the entire body, so that larger body parts (such as hips and shoulders) do not bear a disproportionate share of the pressure, and the less prominent parts (such as the lower back) are supported. This relieves pressure points and maintains spinal alignment.

Since the coils do not pull on each other, they do not transmitt motion from one portion of the mattress to another. This isolation of motion minimizes partner disturbance, so that if one partner gets up or turns over, the other keeps on sleeping peacefully.

Kingdown's Full Body Surround® Edge Support foam encasement holds the pocket coils in place from around the sides. It also supplies edge support to the sleeping surface.

The foam comfort layers in a Handley Collection mattress are memory foam and latex. The memory foam is infused with gel for cooling. Bundled with this is a gel pad, contoured for extra support under the middle of the body. The latex layer is resilient, keeping the memory foam from having that "sinking feeling."

The comfort layers also include two Flexatron® Cushioning Layers. One is made with Joma wool, one with horsehair. These natural fibers are breathable. They also disperse moisture. Wool and horsehair were among the common cushioning and padding materials in early mattresses before the introduction of latex and polyurethane foam.

The cover fabrics for Handley Collection mattresses include silk and New Zealand Joma wool. The top panel is quilted. From the photos, it appears that the fabric is either Damask with an elaborate center pattern or is embroidered. The side panels are Damask and breathable.

The pictured base for Handley mattresses is an upholstered box foundation. This foundation has center beams for extra support. Handley Collection mattresses are also compatible with adjustable beds and platform beds. Traditional box springs are not advisable.

Mattresses in the Handley Collection bear a 15-year manufacturers warranty from Kingsdown. They are available through a number of retailers.
