As posted earlier in the other 2 Mattress threads, my new Dunlopillo Duchess mattress [Queen size] that I'd bought from aafrenz was delivered today

Will feedback after sleeping on it tonight smile.gif

The free bedframe arrived first [gss freebie ?] - now sorting out a minor 'hitch' as somehow the headboard isn't the model I'd chosen at the showroom rolleyes.gif [Color and PU leather seems ok tho']
[The salesguy I dealt with is now busy at the Expo exhibition - seems he made some rectification on the model without confirming with me 1st ???]
I'd taken pics of BOTH the desired/chosen curving bedframe model as well as Duchess mattress on my handphone then [so as to know/show exactly what I was expecting] - the aafrenz lady got me to mms over to her the headboard pic and they'll look into it

Then the Dunlop guys also came with the 'std' freebies + mattress :
1. 2 Dunopillow White Cloud pillows
2. 1 Dunlopillo quilted mattress protector
{Errrmm .... the salesguy did say his manager should personally be delivering an extra free Dunlopillo bolster to me too since he's staying very near my place which happens to be quite near the Expo too - had asked why free bolster not possible since TradeHub place was giving a free bolster too to some of the posters here who managed to wrangle this .... so far no bolster delivery yet - let's see now tongue.gif }
My mom was asking me why I want so many bolsters for what -
hahahaha - all the more the merrier expecially if free - right ?

The new new Duchess mattress is thick - 12" with the Talalay latex pillowtop
All these for only $1299 plus gst : think this is the lowest bargain price right now ?



Can you please advise where you bought the matress at $1299? I thinking of getting the same.

Thank you!

I bought from Aafrenz Bedding Pte Ltd - they are at :
7030 Ang Mo Kio Ave 5
#01-39/58 Northstar
Singapore 569880
Tel : 6570 8034
{across the road is seagate factory - where have bus no. 88, 72 etc
OR 2 bus-stops before Sheng Shiong [off main-street] if enter from Serangoon North Ave 4}

Paid $1299 + gst $90.93 = $1389.93 total [all free delivery]

Call them if they're still at Expo exhibition and if prices better at Expo or not ???
My freebies besides the new Duchess mattress :
- 2 White Cloud Dunlopillo pillows
- 1 Dunlopillo mattress protector
- PU Leather "Designer" Bedframe [extra gss freebie ?? - unfortunately they got the wrong model for me [got the 'boxy rectanges instead of diamonds' pattern at headboard .... sighz ]
- not sure about that free bolster now .....

If you stay in the west, go to TradeHub 21, next to the NOVA, I got my Dutchess (NEW) "Q" c/w free bedframe @ $1500nett. If just the mattress only, it only sells @$1299netts with the existing freebies plus bolster.

Today went shopping in Orchard Rd - and also checked out the Dunlopillo mattresses at the various furnishing stores which carry that brand
Thank goodness - what was delivered by the Dunlopillo guys IS INDEED the NEW Duchess thumbsup.gif
Well - u never know [so many false claims & promises etc]
- so MUST cross-verify with various 'independent' sources [even if it's after the fact]
Yes the Talalay Latex Pillowtop is the much-thicker one of 2.5-3" [found in the New Duchess with the braided cord] compared with the old previous thinner 1" one in the old Duchess

I was hoping to be able to find a nice-coordinating-color sofa throw for my sofa but no luck
guess I can only find such at Ikea .... so must make a trip there probably 2molo

Sighs ... burnt quite a hole today !
Last evening had already bought 3 pairs of shoes [no gss discount there] but when friend called to meet her in Tangs shoe dept, couldn't resist temptation and bought my 4th pair this afternoon !
Then "itchy-itchy" as we'd both not been to Orchard Central OC before - kena 'lured' into a local designer boutique after an interesting item on a mannequin caught my eye ..... arrghhh ended up with 2 items bangwall.gif good.gif
My friend said "Good bc hopefully that would reduce my urge/itch/funds for the casino" that I was planning to make a 2nd trip within the next 2 weeks sad.gif
Nvm - pay day is next week hahahaha wink.gif

Thanks for sharing het.
I was ogling over the simmons lack series once upon a time, thinking that expensive is good.


I saw the Richmond model from courts previously, it's a latex with memory foam, Queen size, retailing at $2600 with storage divan. How long have you been in use of this matress, may I ask?


correction.. bought it 3 yrs back at courts at $2099 only e mattress alone ... yes latex n memory foam.. afterall is good n comfy..
However seahorse mattress is quite durable at e budget price nowadays.. can say their technology n quality is always new for buyer. if have $$ y not go for a good material mattress..eg, Like u pay wat u get.. hehe... can last u for more than 10 or 20 yrs or above..
just my humble point of view... : )

My previous normal spring mattress [old divan style] lasted me well over 22 years
- it was some brand from UK [if not wrong bed+mattress was something like $500 or so then] and from a furnishing retailer that went up-lorry more than 10-15 years back
Actually the replaced old mattress was still in relatively 'good condition' bc after 22 years still no spoilt spring or sagging as such - but I replaced it bc the covering linen material was all tearing apart .....

My mom liked her Dunlopillo latex mattress [bought when she got married] bc that lasted well over 24 years too but her present mattress bought from Robinsons at $400 offer price >5 years back still OK [it's either FourStar or Seahorse ... must remember to check her mattress one of these days to see which brand ...]

I zeroed in on Dunlopillo for my replacement mattress after reading the posts here and especially after I saw the Aafrenz ad that Saturday 10th July which spelt out specifically New Duchess etc & freebies at that price ....
Since this new mattress should hopefully last me until I expire [maybe in say 30 years ?], didn't mind a slightly 'upgraded mattress' for myself this time round bc afterall doubt I'll need to do another mattress replacement unless I live on for say beyond another 35-40 years ??? yamseng.gif

Thanks for sharing jjcc, will KIV the 'new dutchess' as well, the thicker Latex is more comfortable than the former. Was told that it's an inch thicker.
The old dutchess would amount $2099 while new dutchess would amount to $2299,
both with all freebies (mattress protector+2 pillows) and storage divan (as personally I'm looking for storage)
Was told that the storage divan is about $1k, seems like EXPO (dealers from Plaza) are offering the same price.

You may want to check out beds.sg. they offer my storage divan at $860 so, with that in mind, I could save $140.

Oic thanks Ashanti, any deformities with the foam on a closer look? I'm hessistant on getting foams for pillowtop after some feedback from popular brands..
I might just get a replaceable piece; microgel pillowtop from Kingcoils@ $189 (queen-size) during their sales price.

Thanks so much for the beds.sg link !
Hmmm ... from the prices of the Faux Leather Beds stated there
- leads me now to ascertain more {take issue ?} with aafrenz on THEIR claims that the freebies they're giving with the 4 stated mattresses listed in their 10th July ad is worth total of $899
I HAD in fact earlier spoken/emailed the salesguy just 1-2 days after my 11th July visit/order on the "drastic price discrepancy" after comparing the bedframe models I had found on the Sleep Post site then [the Sleep Post then New Duchess online promo has since ended too]
The reply I was given on 13th July was "that those were overpriced/discontinued models/not their own but from suppliers etc" and that "good quality leather" means PU leather [not necessarily real/genuine leather - fair enough]
and my queries on THEIR 'own' models and 'true/not inflated' prices were left typically unanswered deal.gif

Now after exploring the Faux Leather Beds in beds.sg, I wonder now ... unsure.gif
Seems like someone pulled a 'fast one' here somehow on me sad.gif Yikes ....'misrepresentations again ?'
Shouldn't I have been entitled to that "Designer Leather Bed" that should be worth at least $800-$899 ????
- Alano Faux Leather Storage Bed Frame from beds.sg is $859
- Livio Faux Leather Bed Frame is $857 {had seen similar at showroom and was then told that the free bed does not include this model excl.gif}

What was delivered to me is the 'identical' Monaco faux Leather Bed Frame listed as $359 only - in beige
Hmmm - just WHERE is the other $500++ value ??? [$899 - $359 = $540]
{and this was not the chosen 'diamond-shapes' seen at the Northstar showroom - and as captured on my handphone too - but not found at beds.sg site}
My friend likes the simple minimalist boxy rectangles/squares tho' when I showed her the various models we saw at the Orchard Road Mattress & Beds showrooms today
Actually the curved bedframe design is exactly the same/identical in both Alano & Monaco except that Alano is the one with storage

Discounting the 2 pillows and the mattress protector which came from Dunlopillo anyway, the BULK of the $899 should rightfully be attributed to the "Designer Leather Bedframe" since the New Duchess is Item 2 in the Item 1 to 4 stated in the ad !
I know these are FREEBIES but still ...
I hate marketing gimmicks - there shouldn't be ANY misrepresentations of any sort
Make sure you carry thru' your promises, no false claims etc

FYI - from http://www.sleeppost...p...=1159&set=1
The Dunlopillo - SP Latex Topper Pad (Q-size) online price is $407
Latex Toppers are hypo-allergenic. It breathes to keep you warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. Latex toppers add that comforting latex feel, without the cost of an entire latex mattress. Commonly used to increase thickness, and give you a soft feel when sitting on a hard mattress, yet when you lay down, will feel the soft comforting yet supporting feel of your mattress.
Aerated, well-ventilated interior dissipates heat and body moisture.
Talalay toppers are made of 100% Natural Latex Foam.
Latex is hypo-allergenic and its anti-microbial properties inhibit the growth of common bacteria, mildew, and dust mites - so it can be particularly beneficial for asthma sufferers.
Quality control of production gives you the same density and firmness throughout the topper
Conforms to your body contours for superb comfort

On further exploring the Sleep Post site, the dunlopillo storage divan {Q & K size} is ONLY S$ 799 (Online Price)
Futher savings of abt $60 : total savings = $200 for you ?
See http://www.sleeppost...p...=2752&set=1


BTW - the Sleep Post SP 008 Bedframe Model at $379 is 'identical' to Beds.sg's Monaco faux Leather Bed Frame listed at only $359 [$20 cheaper at beds.sg] ------> presently the 'similar' bedframe that was 'wrongly' delivered to me in beige

The sales lady Isa.. I spoke with on Delivery Day last week [not the original sales guy S] from Aafrenz called today and said the correct 'diamond-shape pattern' head-board will be delivered next Thurs afternoon - said it would still be in beige PU leather [guess it would be too much to expect a storage bed from them - even tho' that should add up to the promised $899 value for the freebies as originally advertised - at present there's a MISSING $540 value somehow ....]

I was checking out the ibeds.com.sg site and noticed a similar 'diamond pattern' headboard at http://www.ibeds.com..._805__39319.jpg
which x-805 diamond pattern was more pleasing to the eye as it was 'less complicating with fewer or only 4 diamond shapes at top row' compared with the 'equivalent' aafrenz showroom model with slightly-more or 6 diamond shapes at top row etc ...

Now the present boxy rectangular shape pattern has kinda 'grown on me' after a week ....
[btw it's called Tiffany at ibeds.com.sg and priced at $359 http://www.ibeds.com...s/Tiffany.html# - or called Alano & Monaco at beds.sg as mentioned earlier]
I really hope I won't regret my 'diamond-shape' option at the end of the day rolleyes.gif bangwall.gif
tho' I remember the 'curving' was far more pronounced here and therefore very good for sitting up in bed
Fingers crossed 'no regrets' here smile.gif


BTW dexufto the Dunlopillo SP Latex Topper, Thickness: 1.5" [Q-size] is cheaper - only $380 at v-shopper.com compared with sleeppost's $407 stated earlier

Today saw aafrenz's latest ad - still with "lowest price guaranteed"

BUT the new Duchess mattress is now priced at $1,899 [instead of the previous $1,299 (+ gst)]
with 2 supposedly ADDITIONAL Freebies - Quiltcover + Bedsheet Set - making total 5 freebies instead of the original 3 comprising the Designer Leather Bedframe + Pillows + Mattress Protector

Also 3 other brand mattresses featured - KingKoil + MaxCoil + Four Star - with same 5 freebies now

Seems like the Northstar shops all having big sales bc also saw other ads. in today's ST papers

So the $1,299 deal is over already?

Do you think the new duchess is too thick for regular queen size bedsheet?

Hi DivineParadise,
Sales will come and go..
Wait and observe if you have time to spare, the 'sales price' will come again.
And don't get pushed by sales-talk, with those "only this weekend sales" nonsense.
As like IT fair, I believe there would be the home/ design fair@ expo, seems like a quarterly affair.

The dutchess spelled 11" from sleeppost.com
Most queen size bedsheet should be able to accomodate up to 14".
Do check on the labels before you purchase the next time. It should be indicated.
cheers.

The sales lady from aafrenz called me Wed to remind me of the Thurs delivery for the diamond-shape bedframe and I confirmed it since I'd already arranged to take half-day leave for Thurs afternoon specifically for this [even tho' I would have much preferred a Wed PM delivery where I won't need to take leave being one of my 2 afternoons-off but was told MUST be Thurs...]

So I rushed home but no delivery at all so I changed into my sleepwear after waiting till 8 pm [unable to reach them since phone was busy all this while]
Then I received a call after 9pm from the delivery guys that they were on the way
When they finally came after 10 pm, they had to first ascertain with me the exact style of the bedframe 'whether it contained crystals 'diamonds' or not etc' - was shocked that they seemed so uncertain even at this late stage and they said that it was very dark in the van and they want to make sure they were bringing up the right product etc ....

So finally they brought up a diamond-shaped bedframe [but it didn't look at all like what I'd remembered tho' and the curving wasn't as pronounced as seen at the display set etc ....]
On comparing, I still preferred the 1st original 'wrongly-delivered' boxy rectangular design and told them I would stick with that instead - they said no problem [saved them some work]
So my bedframe was left intact after all instead of being changed wink.gif
Guess us women have the final perogative here

divineparadise - why don't you call aafrenz and inquire on their price and whether the Duchess can be bought at $1299 now [maybe with fewer freebies] etc ?
I strapped the mattress protector over the pillowtop layer since the elastic couldn't stretch easily over the whole mattress base
So far no problem with the bedsheets tho' the Duchess is 11-12 inches thick.

Felt a little silly after reading all these posts. Not sure if I got the right deal having bought King Koil Imperial Comfort - Renaissance for >$4k at Robinsons!

Felt very comfortable with the plush pad and firmness. Slept on a couple of Simmons and Sealy but thought KK felt most comfortable. Kenna chop already?

Hi all,

After trying out a few different brands from the 3S's (Serta, Sealy and Simmons), I find Serta to be the best mattress for me.
I tried out the Field of Dreams at the Taka showroom and straight after lying down a short while, both me and my gf started smiling.
It really did feel much different from the other mattreses. However, good things don't come easy - the prices was about $5K+ (if I remember correctly).

We tried out some other Serta models at the IMM outlet, and were impressed with the Willow Spring mattress.
The salesman explained that the latex in the mattress would make modulate the temperature, so the mattress felt very cooling and nice when I tried it out.
The support was also very good. The salesman jumped on the other side of the bed while I was lying down and I didn't feel a thing.
I think the price quoted was about $3.7K for the Willow Spring King-sized mattress with freebies included.

Just this weekend, I went to the Singapore Expo for Asia Furniture Fair, and came across a Serta booth.
They had a "spin the wheel" promotion where you could win a separate single mattress.
However the price quoted for the Willow Spring mattress was about $4.3K.

Does anyone know which outlet / salesperson gives the best price? If necessary, I'll be happy to organize a group buy too :)

It really did feel much different from the other mattreses. However, good things don't come easy - the prices was about $5K+ (if I remember correctly).

We tried out some other Serta models at the IMM outlet, and were impressed with the Willow Spring mattress.
The salesman explained that the latex in the mattress would make modulate the temperature, so the mattress felt very cooling and nice when I tried it out.
The support was also very good. The salesman jumped on the other side of the bed while I was lying down and I didn't feel a thing.
I think the price quoted was about $3.7K for the Willow Spring King-sized mattress with freebies included.

Just this weekend, I went to the Singapore Expo for Asia Furniture Fair, and came across a Serta booth.
They had a "spin the wheel" promotion where you could win a separate single mattress.
However the price quoted for the Willow Spring mattress was about $4.3K.

Does anyone know which outlet / salesperson gives the best price? If necessary, I'll be happy to organize a group buy too :)


Hi according to the ppl in this forum the group buy has ended. May i know which outlet u went and got the mattress cheaper? i went to the boutique at
centrepoint before the AFF and they quoted me 10% cheaper said it was for the GSS if i remember correctly...

If you are still able to initiate the group buy pls pm me... Im interested in buying too...

Just bought the Simmons Heavenly Bed(Glendale) at Courts last Tuesday.
After going to the top brands, we find Simmons comfortable and price quite reasonable to us. Price is about $2880 with 2 free pillows. :)

Wifey and I went to the Asia Pacific Furniture Fair today at Expo. We bought a queen size Slumberland Royal Regency mattress with bedframe, 2 pillows, 1 bolster and 1 mattress protector for $2398.

We liked the mattress and the bedframe and thought it was a good promo.

Anyone went to this furniture fair as well and bought something?

hi, has anyone tried the maxcoil mattress? I found out that the comments and thread on this brand is not much talk abt. most ppl talk abt the branded ones. but i went and test the mattress in the expo fair and talk to the sales staffs there. friendly staffs they have. I tried the posture care jewel model and thought it felt very comfy as compared to some other branded ones of the same price range. For me to get the feel, i gotta pay alot more for other brands and after some consideration, i went bk on the following week to place a deposit.

Just sharing and maybe u guys can keep yr options open.

nobody thinking of using seahorse? I have been using that for the past 10 years and it is still serving me well and price is reasonable.

We bought Sealy Mayfair, $2.4k not including bedframe which is optional at an additional $599. Wife felt the mattress was comparable to some she slept on in hotels. :)

i tried lying-down on alot of brands of mattresses...
From Sealy, Slumberland, Dunlopillo, Sweet dreams, King Koil, Magic Koil...etc.

Prices for above mattress brands varies alot...
Some can go up to $3K-$5K! Wow!!

In the end,i bought the Magic Koil latex queen-size mattress & storage bedframe for about $2K.
The lying-down comfort w support feeling, feels the same as branded mattresses. :notti:

Saved me $1K to buy other stuffs for my new home...! :thumbs up:

Hi C Monkey

Saw your post on this mattress some time back. How is it so far (heard that it isnt so good after a while) so just wanted to check it out with you ~ thanks!

Thanks!

snowiee, my Simmons Backcare Ultimate is a Queen size and it's my basic Beautyrest that is the King size. I remember the former to be 3K. It's been too long, so I can't remember well. If you really want to know, do call Taka bedding department to check out.

The Backcare Ultimate has a very thick plush layer right on the top. Luxurious is what I would describe it as. I am very tempted to change my King size mattress but I think I will have to wait a bit more. I have so much to do for our new home this year already, so this prospective purchase can wait.

im also looking for a bed but so irritating all the places have different models very hard to compare prices.

So far, I like the sealy moret 9inch with 12layers pillowtop (think it looks like 3 inch plush top) but it's at $4200 best price liao at IMM (my hubby refused to even go look at it as it's way past our budget), another one max coil therapy 4 pocketed spring box with 3 inch natural latex pillow top at courts choa chu kang $2699 but I have seen bad reviews about maxcoil that the mattress don't last.

Anyone knows where's the best value buy currently?
So far I have heard good reviews for Tempur, Dunlopillo Duchess, Serta Field of Dreams.

My old mattress is from Simmons Beautyrest, I bought like only $999 10 years ago. So worthwhile!! But now the cheapest range from Simmons still cost at least $2499, my gosh.

Any reviews on Princebed?

I heard it is a local brand, but comfort level seems good.
