If you’re looking to buy a bed, the first piece of advice would be to buy a bed from one of the country’s reputable bed shops that stock brands that have used advanced sleep technology and top-quality material to manufacture their beds. If the last time you bought a new bed was at least 7 to 8 years ago, you’ll be surprised at what innovations have been made in recent years.
There’s a lot of bed lingo in bed buying, and it may get overwhelming. Visit a bed shop that employs salespeople who are patient and knowledgeable about bedroom furniture, like beds, bedroom pedestals, bed frames and sleeper couches. It helps to have a wide range of expertise when it comes to quality sleep.
The Mattress Warehouse took a look at some of South Africa’s most well-known and loved bed brands. Here are the top 10 bed makes in South Africa for you to research to kick-start your quest to find the best bed in South Africa:
Cloud Nine is a wholly-owned independent division of a South African company that manufactures premium quality polyurethane foam mattresses and upholstered bases. Part of what makes Cloud Nine range of bed products so good is that the products are manufactured using multi-layered Viscous Elastic and Polyurethane foam materials.
The Cloud Nine company started in Cape Town in 1968 and had expanded its distribution to the rest of South Africa. Each mattress consists of high-density foam layers, with each layer adding to its unique purpose in providing the best support possible.
There are three different types of Cloud Nine beds to choose from:
- the i-Sleep Range offers a layer of memory foam for a plush comfort feel
- the Euro-Latex Range has a Latex finishing layer for a firm feel and can accommodate a heavier weight
- the Rapid Reform Range combines different density Polyurethane foam layers for unique comfort and feel
Each Cloud Nine mattress provides perfect posture support, which is great for back and neck support . Cloud Nine mattresses are hygienic and allergy free because the foam is completely stable once cured.
All mattresses are SABS approved and endorsed by CASA (Chiropractic Association of South Africa). A Cloud Nine mattress and base set promises great comfort on top of functionality and support.

Each mattress incorporates materials such as cashmere and organic wool, which is combined with advanced technology to create the perfect bed. The mattress leaves you feeling cool, fresh and dry; the mattress is designed to constantly circulate air while some models are made with gel-infused memory foam and natural latex which prevent the bed from sagging.
Unique Compression Activation technology acts as a rapid response system which provides support to pressure points of the body and keeps your back well aligned. The pocket spring systems are regarded as one of the most advanced in the business.
The Genessi Bed range promises superior durability and great support, using a unique combination of high density and specialty foams. The mattress is made to ensure your back stays in alignment while absorbing pressure points such as shoulders and hips. A sleeper is not disturbed by the movement as the foam does not have a rigid, connected structure and is designed to react only to the immediate area where pressure or weight is applied.
Genessi beds are treated with Nano-Technology which is added protection against mosquitoes, dust mines, bed bugs, and bacteria. The foam is non-allergenic and has an open cell structure which makes it more breathable. Air and moisture flow freely through the foam mattress. Find a king-size bed or queen size bed in the Genessi Bed range.
