Natural Talalay Latex

Not all latex is created equal, which is why we only use 100% Natural Talalay Latex in our beds. Latex is comfortable and supportive, sleeps temperature neutral and promotes increased airflow, which helps with moisture dissipation. As if that’s not enough, latex is naturally hypoallergenic, biodegradable and antimicrobial.

    This is our primary bed and it’s a vast improvement from the 15 year old mattress we were stretching the life out I of. I really enjoy this bed for back sleeping, but for side sleeping I have some contact points that I didn’t feel when I laid on it for 10 minutes in the store. We love that we don’t need a box spring and have the bed on the metal frame that gives us underbed storage. I do run a little warm in this bed so I’ve just made modifications to my stacks of covers. The new bed smell did seem to last quite awhile. I can still smell a bit of it months later. Overall, I I’m happy with the bed and Parklane made it easy to know what I was getting.

    This is our primary bed and we think it is great. This is a mattress I would still purchase.

    This is my primary bed. I’m a side sleeper but have 2 children. I’ve developed some hip pain over the years of sleeping on a “too soft” bed. My hips are better (it’s been 5-6 months) since I bought the bed. I try to migrate to ; stomach sleeping sometimes but it still kills my back on this bed. My husband is a stomach sleeper and has no complaints.

    The Cornell mattress is just what we were looking for… cushy without being mushy. We can snuggle down into it at night, and still roll over easily. No big dips!
    Service: customer service we received in the store was great. Very low key but ready to answer whatever questions we had. Our set up and delivery went very smoothly. After they set up the box spring, the delivery guys even asked if I had a dust ruffle I wanted to put on before they brought in the mattress. Nice!

    I love my new mattress and look forward to going to bed each night now. I went to the showroom twice. The first time was to come up with a short list of mattresses that I might want. The salesperson was helpful and informative without being pushy. I felt comfortable wandering around, laying down and bouncing on the beds. The second time I went, I “camped out” with a magazine to check out the support for reading in bed. I found just the right combination of softness and support for my sleep position and reading in bed! Love to go to bed now

    It was time to for a new mattress as our old one was 14 years old and was getting very uncomfortable. No more waking up with back pain after getting this mattress! Very comfortable and supportive. A bit heavy to move around, but that’s probably expected for a quality mattress.
    Service: Buying experience at the store was excellent. There was no pressure at all and we were able to take as long as we wanted trying out mattresses. Delivery was right on time and the workers were friendly.

  7. Rated 2 out of 5

    Bed was harder than the one at the store. When I contacted the office, person who identified himself as the VP had no customer service skills. He didn’t know how to resolve the situation, couldn’t offer any compromise. Rude.

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    After hours of trying mattresses, I decided on the Cornell. I had taken advantage of the expertise and patience of Mark, Elizabeth, and Vincent at the Clackamas Store. Since the first night, the mattress has been perfect. For the first time in years and multiple mattress trials, I have not experienced any pain and being that I have multiple neck and low back disc problems this is much appreciated. Thank you so much.

    I had been shopping for a bed for about two months to replace my 17 year-old mattress. I mostly shopped at the major Matress stores and was reluctant to spend over $2000 for a matress and boxspring. A friend told me about Parklane and how please she was with her experience. So I went there one Sunday afternoon, almost fell asleep and the bed in the showroom then purchased my new bed at 1/2 the cost of what I was looking at spending with the other retailers. I am happy to support my local businesses and very pleased with my purchase and service. And I love my bed!!!!

  10. Rated 5 out of 5

    The best decision we made! This mattress has helped with my hip pain. Customer service is great. Set up time was about 20 minutes for frame, mattress and foundation.

  11. Rated 5 out of 5

    I purchased the Cornell for my teenage son who grew too tall for his double bed. He tested all of the Parklane mattresses and determined that it was the most comfortable of all, except for maybe the all-latex Macadam. I didn’t purchase the Macadam for him mostly because he’s a big kid (6’2″), and I didn’t want to risk the latex possibly sagging over time as a result. I think that he’ll get more support from the coils in the long run, and will still get that latex comfort on top. Super comfortable!

  12. Rated 5 out of 5

    Love Parklane Mattresses. Excellent service and delivery. The mattress feels soft, but is very supportive. I would highly recommend Parklane Matresses– already have:)

  13. Rated 5 out of 5

    We enjoyed the shopping experience compared to other places. The young man asked how we sleep to determine which mattress might work best for us and our budget. The delivery and pickup of the old set went very smoothly. We are very happy with the new mattress.

    The Quimby replaced a bed we had for almost 20 years – long overdue to be replaced. We did extensive research, visited a number of stores and returned to parklane for the quality of the bed and the low-pressure sales approach.
    Service: we loved the service, which for us started in the showroom where the sales person provided great information without the drama and sales tactics we encountered at competitors. Delivery was well organized, on time, and very courteous. We couldn’t be happier!

  15. Rated 5 out of 5

    We bought this bed for my daughter and she loves it. The bed gives firm support but without the firm feel you sometimes get. The materials are top quality and so soft you could sleep directly on the mattress but I wouldn’t advise it. We were so happy with her mattress that we bought two more Parklane mattresses for our family.

  16. Rated 5 out of 5

    I felt very comfortable spending almost an hour in the store trying out different mattresses. The staff was friendly, helpful, but not intrusive. Prices are very reasonable, and there are no “specials” to wait for or fake markdowns. The mattress is extremely comfortable. I sleep well and wake up without my usual aching back or shoulders I got from sleeping on my old mattress. I recommend you don’t buy this mattress in December like I did, because you’ll want to sleep even more during those dark, cold NW winter days.

  17. Rated 5 out of 5

    My partner and I use the Cornell as our primary bed and we both love it. I am most impressed with the sturdy sides and the box spring can be bypassed if you have a futon type bed frame. My partner likes the latex core and price. We both think it’s super comfortable for any and all bed activities we’ve been able to conjure. I would recommend this bed to anyone who is looking for a rad, reliable, sturdy, yet comfortable and cozy bed. And it is very handsome.
    Service: I am pretty certain Parklane has bed delivery down to a science. Two handsome and strong men arrived on time and quickly delivered and placed our bed in the frame. 15 minutes tops including stairs.

    We went to Parklane first and your sales rep Lany guided us thru the various models. No sales pressure, she just let us know the subtle differences between the models. I was very impressed with her ability to keep each one’s different features separate as we tried about eight different models. Compared to the price, feel and customer service(pushy sales guy) at another major mattress retailer that we visited afterward, Parklane won hands down. On the second visit to buy, Mark was also very helpful getting everything set up for purchase and delivery after we made our choice. We’ve had it now for about four months and we both sleep soundly and wake without being sore like before with our old mattress. Delivery guys were great too. Great purchase and a great mattress at a great price.

    After acknowledging my firm futon was just not working with the aches and pains we all get as we age, I spent several hours trying every mattress in a big mattress store. I wasn’t finding the magic combination of firm yet giving until I ended up visiting the Parklane store when I read about their eco friendly materials and practices. It took several attempts to find the right combination of firm and soft that I found in the Cornell. Than we learned the company was local which allows them to keep the prices lower than the big stores- a win-win.

  20. Rated 4 out of 5

    The mattress is a little too firm; I am using it and hoping that it will become a little more forgiving in the hip area. Sometimes I wake up with achy hip joints.
    Service: the deliverymen were GREAT. They obligingly removed the old mattress to the guest room and set up the new one to perfection, all in a cheerful manner.

  21. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in! I broke my back a few years ago so having a bed that’s both soft and supportive at the same time was really important. This bed met all my requirements in one fell swoop.

  22. Rated 5 out of 5

    We purchased the Cornell mattress for ourselves, and we are thrilled with our purchase. This is a very comfortable mattress, which we would recommend to anyone searching for a new mattress.

  23. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is our main bed. We were looking for a bed that provided comfort and support. We had a bed with a thick pillow top that created too much heat. This mattress provides the perfect balance between support and comfort.

    Service: The delivery experience was great and we love the fact that we are buying local.

  24. Rated 3 out of 5

    My spouse and I shopped for this at the Gresham store for over an hour. The sales person suggested two models for our size and sleep pattern. We did our own PU as we live out of town. We wanted an easy buying experience and made in USA. We had both but the quality is poor and not at all comfortable. I wish I still had my old mattress, it was much better. Next time I will buy from a dealer that I can get a full refund from if necessary.

  25. Rated 5 out of 5

    The mattress is firm but not hard. It was firmer than the model at the store, but it does need a break-in period before it feels totally right. I like the fact that the edges retain their shape even under load. It does not sink in when I lie on it. It is a medium firm mattress, which works best for me. It may not be for everyone, but I love it.

  26. Rated 4 out of 5

    Reluctantly had to replace my 12 year-old Stearns & Foster pillow-top—best mattress I think I ever owned until now. For past year or so when my old mattress was beginning to wear out, I bought a 4 inch Novaform foam topper that I loved, soI knew I wanted a mattress that had memory foam, too. I did a lot of research and was considering a Tempurpedic then I realized Parklane was a local company. Further due diligence revealed that Parklane used materials sourced in the U.S., and none of the latex type materials that produced long lived fumes or odors, and about the time they no longer smelled, the material began to break down. I went to local site in Tualatin just to see mattresses for myself and was very impressed. I chose a mattress with qualities that suited me best, and felt price was fair, albeit higher than I’d expected. Delivery was as scheduled, and two men were very efficient taking my old beloved mattress away and stowing it in the second truck that arrived, for recycling. The first night on the mattress was not the best—it just felt too hard, but realized I was used to the foam topper. Second night was no better so the next day I put my Novafoam topper over the mattress and now have the best of both worlds—good flat support with the memory foam soft top that is most comfortable to me at this stage of my life. I am very satisfied with the mattress but if not for the foam topper, I probably would have asked to exchange it for one with a softer top layer.

    We purchased this bed for my son who is a big guy. This bed is very supportive but still very comfortable. He has had it for about a month and is still commenting on how comfortable it is. He had been waking with daily backaches and they are gone.

    After many mattresses over the years that were too soft or too hard, Cornell is just right. The sales person listened to my needs — side sleeper, etc. Thanks, Parklane, for a great locally-made product.

    Sleeping on a cloud very comfy. I get a good nights sleep every night.

    In use as a “primary” bed. Haven’t had the bed long enough to address the long term sturdiness or “cavity” questions, but our back and shoulder pains seem to have gone away! So far, this looks like it could be the answer to the discomfort we have had from other beds for years. Thank you, Parklane. Staff was quite knowledgeable, especially Jon in Tualatin.

    The Store and Delivery experience was awesome. While testing the beds, they allowed us to check them out without hovering over us.

    I love the mattress. I have had back problems in the past and thanks to the Cornell my back is feeling a lot better. I like how solid the sides of the mattress feel. Each time I get in or out of my bed it has a solid frame feel.

  34. Rated 5 out of 5

    I did a bit of shopping around before coming to Parklane, what I ended up purchasing was still $500 less than I was going to get somewhere else and I had a discount of $500 on top of that. I absolutely love my new mattress and wake up well rested every morning even if I don’t get a full nights sleep. I would highly reccomend visiting Parklane and checking out their mattresses before going anywhere else.

    Beautifully designed; great night’s sleep. Looked at a number of outlets – should have gone to Parklane first. Be sure to see comments under service also.

    Service: The mattress is great – what really makes the total difference is the service. Expert information; thoughtful advice based on the customer’s sleep habits; excellent price; delivery and setup are flawless.

    My wife and I went from a beat up Double Size, made in China or somewhere not anywhere near Oregon, to this amazing King Size. It’s not just the size or the fact that it’s made so close to home. This mattress is amazing and I never want to sit, lie, or do anything anywhere but on our new bed. I guess the only negative comment I have is that it’s too big to take with me when I leave the house.

    Service: I have never had such a good experience when buying a mattress. Absolutely no pressure and very helpful. My wife, our 5 year old daughter, and I spent at least an hour in the store laying and jumping on every bed in there. It was fun and educational. Delivery was prompt and just as refreshing as the sale.

    After serious searches and testing beds to make an informed choice we decided talalay was best for us. From there we researched where to find what we wanted and came upon Parklane. So glad we found them local. After several trips and conversations with the staff, ALL of which were extremely knowledgable of there products and their uniquenessess, we decided on the Cornell. Fabulous bed!! Couldn’t be happier. As the staff says, there is a short break in period with the new bed as opposed to the beds that are softer in the showroom due to “trials” from customers, but once you get there it is like Heaven in a cloud. The staff were very concerned for the customer to make the right choice for their individual needs and although they did not push any certain bed, they were consistent with their knowledge and what each bed could provide an individuals specific needs, and the balances for dual sleepers with different needs. We ordered our bed and it arrived on time by very courteous and friendly folk who went out of their way to be mindful of our property, etc, entering and exiting with extreme care and caution. They set up the new bed and removed the old one to a separate truck which I find above and beyond others methods of removal. Right down to the little blue booties over their shoes. That really impressed my husband! The only thing I was sad about was the bed came in the NEW color fabric than the floor model, which I liked the looks of better, not that you would ever see it once made up, and certainly does not alter the quality! All in all, very satisfied with our purchase, which, by the way, was a significant savings by comparison, which I did a lot of! When it is time for a new bed, or one for the guest room, We will certainly go to Parklane! Many thanks Parklane!!

    A great mattress for the price-we looked a long time and chose the Cornell. It sleeps like a dream-we wake up feeling refreshed and ready for our day-not tired from tossing and turning like before on anothers brand…the only complaint I have with Parklane and the Cornell is I waited soooo long to buy and enjoy it!

    Service: our delivery team arrived within there time frame-with a call before they were on their way – set up was quick, the guys were very friendly. The trucks were clean as were the uniforms of the delivery guys-another great example of the superb service Parklane offers

    We were in dire need of a new mattress set. We searched around and were dreading the shopping. Finally a friend mentioned Parklane and so we went there. Wow, what a difference from the other places! Very low key was our experience, which for us was perfect. We have had the mattress now for only a couple weeks. I love it, although it might still be a bit too soft for me. We will try it out a bit longer, and if not it is nice to know that we can swap it for something more firm, if need be. That alone is a huge benefit of shopping at Parklane. I KNOW we will end up with a good fit. We received an email the night before our scheduled delivery to tell us the time. They were prompt and very nice. Our entire shopping experience was excellent, as was delivery. I was back at Parklane today as I wanted to check out the more firm mattresses. It was good to talk to them about it and to know that we can swap if we need to. We will give it a couple more weeks and get used to it (never slept on a pillow top before) and then decide. Regardless, I will still tell everyone I know about our experience and how great it has been. Also a plus are the prices. Much more reasonable than anywhere else!

    We bought this bed for our master bedroom after sleeping on an coil spring futon mattress for four years. Needless to say the futon needed to go. After perusing the store and talking with a very helpful employee about the different beds we landed on the Cornell. While it was a little bit more than our second choice it was by far the best for us. As a side sleeper I have never been more comfortable or felt more well rested. I literally feel like every part of my body is perfectly supported when falling asleep. My SO also loves the bed and he is a sometimes back sleeper. Neither of us have had a difficult time getting comfortable or falling asleep since we got the mattress-which was a common problem with the last one. I can’t recommend Parklane or the Cornell enough.

  44. Rated 2 out of 5

    I have to say I was very dissappointed with this mattress. When I tried it at the store it felt like heaven, but when I slept on it I awoke with one of the worst backaches. I put my featherbed on it and after about 2 weeks it was okay to sleep on. Not great but okay.

    Service: the advice I got to “break in” the mattress was ridiculous…get some kids to jump up and down on it! I have never heard of having to “break in” a bed and neither has anyone else I asked. I was told that it was like breaking in a pair of shoes. If I try on a pair of shoes and they hurt, I’m not going to buy them!

  45. Rated 5 out of 5

    We really considered a memory foam mattress, but we’re so glad we went with latex. The temperature neutral element means that we don’t climb into a rock hard, ice cold bed at night, and we don’t get overly hot at night, enveloped in our own body heat. This bed strikes a happy medium between firm support and sink-in comfort. We can lay on our backs or sides and sleep peacefully. Other activities and positions are also very comfortable.

    Service: the whole shopping experience at Parklane was great. We were greeted by a friendly and very knowledgeable sales associate, who patiently guided us through the best options for our sleep styles. She really listened to us, and made us feel confident about our purchase, clearly explaining the warranty/return policies. The delivery people were also fantastic, giving us white glove treatment. We are very pleased!

    we received excellent advice about the differnet mattresses which assured us of buying the right mattress. Our last mattress came from the “warehouse” store 12 years ago and we never have enjoyed it like we have the new Parklane Cornell.

  47. Rated 5 out of 5

    We began with the Irving for 3 weeks and quickly realized that a little more cushioning would be better for our hips and shoulders. The Cornell was just enough softer, yet still provides great support. We had been on an expensive Tempurpedic for 5 years, but the Cornell is much more comfortable overall. It has eliminated some back pain that both of us were experiencing.

  48. Rated 5 out of 5

    I really like our new Cornell. It’s a lot softer than I had remembered from the store, but still very supportive and firm underneath the top pillowy, cushiony layer. We’re light sleepers, and we tend to toss and turn a lot, but we’re both finding that we’re getting a lot more sleep with the Cornell—if one of us is moving, it doesn’t wake the other one up. Plus, we don’t feel “stuck” in one place like we did with our foam mattress. As an extra, unexpected bonus, I don’t wake up with lower back pain anymore. Really great mattress!

  49. Rated 4 out of 5

    I was given great customer service at the store. The sales person suggested a slightly firmer mattress because of my very bad back. I do love the mattress and like that it is large in width so I am higher off the ground, it feels quite fancy. Sometimes, I do wish it was a little softer like a pillow top, though that would probably not be good for my back. I do love that the bed was made in Oregon.

  50. Rated 4 out of 5

    Great mattress. Purchased this to replace an old mattress with a foam topper. We have been sleeping great for months now. Very comfortable for both my wife and I. She typically prefers a more firm mattress but this has been great for us. My only complaint is that this mattress is a bit bouncy with two people sleeping.

    Service: Service in the store was great. No pressure. The salesman was very knowledgeable and helpful. We decided on Parklane after a friend suggested “this great place where the mattresses are made in Oregon”
    Delivery was on time and the delivery men were very professional in delivering our new mattress and taking our old mattress away.

    This is our main master bed and we are sleeping very comfortably on it. The sales people were great, a young person who was very knowledgable and helpful in selecting our bed. I like the size of your store because it is not overwhelming with too many selections. Thanks for the great service, fast delivery and great price. We will recommend your product to our friends, family and neighbors.

    Since my wife and I bought this bed in October of 2011, we have had the best sleep in years. Our old mattress, which was only 5 years old, was giving us back pain. I would literally have to get up in the morning because my back hurt soo much. Since we bought this mattress, our back pain has dissapeared, and now I can actually sleep in on my days off 🙂 This was a great buying experience. We went to many mattress stores and they played the pricing game and Parklane was the cheapest with no pricing hassle. My wife and I had time to lay on the mattresses for at least an hour while our 1 and a half year old daughter played with the toys they had. It was great! Thank you

    I didn’t like the first mattress I chose so I returned it for the Cornell. As advertised, the store exchanged the mattress without question. I did have to pay a recycling fee, which was understood up front. I used my old box spring, but bought the 7 leg emBrace frame. Great bed frame! I am totally happy with the Cornell. Being a side sleeper, it is perfect for me. Great customer service!

    I have slept like a baby since the day our Parklane Mattress arrived. This mattress is everything we had hoped it would be and the price was very reasonable. My back has never felt so good. I loved that our salesperson was knowledgeable and let us take our time choosing.

    “I LOVE my new mattress (The Cornell) from Parklane Mattress. Buying a new mattress was such a frustrating endeavor until I looked into Oregon made mattresses. When I discovered Parklane has a store near me, everything changed. NO pressure buying experience. Helpful and informative staff (of one when I was there). Excellent variety of quality mattresses and AFFORDABLE. It is absolutely true that you will need to break it in for a few months. When you get tired of looking and fretting about all the reviews you read online about other big name mattresses…I hope you too discover Parklane. I know it sounds like hype but I really like this mattress 🙂 especially after shopping around. If you are in Oregon and need a mattress…I highly recommend Parklane Mattresses.”

    This a Goldilocks’ mattress that’s just right: it has great support and firmness, and is comfy soft enough for snuggling into. I have not been waking with back, hip or shoulder pain anymore. There is not a hint of body indentation in the mattress in the almost 4 months that I’ve had it. I rotate the mattress regularly, but warning: the mattress is heavy! It’s hard to rotate it over the traditional sleigh bed foot board by yourself. I’m so glad that I made this purchase!

    Love my new Parklane bed. It’s the best I’ve ever purchased. Totally comfy. The guys who delivered were great. Nazareth and Hector delivered and set it up in no time. They are very professional and efficient. My salesperson, Elizabeth, was so helpful and knowledgeable. Kudos to Parklane!
