Summary: Is the Luxi One a Good Mattress?

The Luxi One is a companion product to the Luxi mattress we've previously reviewed, and most of our observations here are in direct relation to the Luxi bed.

The Luxi One is a more affordable mattress compared to the Luxi, and some of the same key materials are used in both mattresses. However, the Luxi One does not have the Luxi bed's customization options (where the layers of the mattress can be rearranged at home to suit different preferences in softness and cushioning).

Both mattresses use Luxi's synthetic latex, called Luxitex, in a 4-lb. density. And both also incorporate the company's proprietary SBT foam layer, which has cut-out towers (we call them mushrooms). These columns collapse and compress independently on the Luxi mattress, but on the Luxi One, they are glued to the latex layer, so they don't have as much independent movement.

The Luxi One, in our view, fills a hole in the Luxi lineup in terms of softness; None of the Luxi mattresses are firm; although there's a Firm version, we found it to be more of a Medium. The Luxi One, however, is what we would call a Firm (though be aware the company called it Medium Soft). Overall, we think the Luxi One will suit stomach sleepers in particular better than the Luxi mattress, and we think it will work well in terms of support for back sleepers who prefer a firmer feeling mattress.

The Luxi One and the Luxi mattresses both offer excellent motion isolation. Both have good edge support, especially for a foam mattress, and we found the Luxi One's edge support to be a bit better than the Luxi mattress.

So what's missing? Aside from no customization options, the Luxi One has a different cover. It's simpler, and does not have the Luxi's quilted-in memory foam. The Luxi One is a 9" tall mattress while the Luxi is 11" tall. The Luxi One is also missing about $500 in cost (for the queen size) compared to the Luxi.

The companies SBT foam is included in both the Luxi One and the Luxi mattresses. The Luxi One has 2.5" of the SBT foam, while the Luxi has 3.5" of it.

You can place the Luxi One mattress atop the support of your choice, including a separately purchased box support, a bed frame, platform bed, or adjustable bed frame. Luxi at this time does not sell its own frames or foundations.

Bottom Line: Who is the Best Match for a Luxi One Mattress?

BEST if you:

  • Are a stomach sleeper
  • Are easily disturbed by a partner repositioning
  • Prefer a firm mattress
  • Want too edge support

NOT IDEAL if you:

  • Like a slow, melting into the bed memory-foam feel
  • Are primarily a side sleeper

Materials & Construction

What's in a Luxi One Mattress?

Overall, we classify the Luxi One mattress as an "All Foam" construction type. It is a 9″ thick mattress comprised of 3 layers, listed here from top to bottom.

  • 1" Luxitex synthetic latex, 4 lb. density
  • 2.5" SBT foam, 2.5 lb. density
  • 5.75" polyurethane support foam, 2 lb. density

The Luxi One is comprised of three layers, glued together and enclosed in a non-removable cover. The top layer is the company's proprietary synthetic latex foam, called Luxitex. Under that is 2.5" of the company's SBT foam, followed by a support block of standard polyurethane foam.

Cover

The layers of the Luxi One are wrapped in a soft and stretchy cover. It is not removable.

 

Comfort & Feel

There are three aspects that make up our assessment of comfort and feel. We call these "preference-based characteristics" because no rating here is better or worse – rather, the attributes that are most desirable to you will be determined solely by your personal preferences. We apply the same classification standards to each mattress so you can more easily compare apples to apples.

Softness what’s this )

The company calls the Luxi One a "Medium Soft" mattress, but we found it to be a Firm on our softness scale. It is firmer than any of the Luxi mattress configurations.

Not sure what softness is best for you? Take our Mattress Match Quiz and find out.

Softness Level
(1=Least Soft, 9=Most Soft)
3 Firm

 

Cushioning Depth what’s this )

The Luxi One has shallower cushioning than the Luxi mattress configurations, giving you more of a floating-on-top feeling than one of deeply sinking in.

Cushioning Depth
(1=Shallowest, 9=Deepest)
4 Shallower than average

 

Responsivenesswhat’s this )

The Luxi One has no memory foam, so has none of that slow-responding memory feel. The bed springs right back after being compressed.

There was also little to no bounce in this mattress when our tester dropped his weight on to the bed.

Response Rate
(1=Slowest, 9=Fastest)
9 Very quick recovery, little bounce

 

Back Support & Pressure Relief

Our review of the Luxi mattress includes a more detailed assessment of support and pressure relief, and a discussion of how the SBT foam effects those.

The Luxi One is a firmer mattress, and in our view it would suit stomach sleepers very well. We also felt it would be a good choice for back sleepers that prefer a firmer feel. Those who sleep primarily on their sides may find the Luxi One too firm overall, but for occasional side sleepers, it may be just fine.

Other Features

Beyond the preference-based characteristics of comfort and feel, and the body matching for spinal alignment and pressure relief, a mattress will have a number of other attributes that can make it a better or worse choice for you. We call these "priority-based characteristics" because they are areas in which a mattress can be better or worse, but that will have differing amounts of importance to each sleeper. So, determining how much importance to give to these features will be entirely a matter of your own personal priorities. As always, we apply the same ratings standards to each mattress so you can more easily compare apples to apples.

 

Motion Isolation what’s this )

We quickly tested motion isolation by dropping a bowling ball on the bed, as well as the weight of our 200 lb. tester to see if a bowling pin standing on the bed would topple. As with the Luxi mattress, it did not.

If you are sensitive to a partner's movements in bed, either the Luxi One or the Luxi would be a very good choice.

Motion Isolation Rating 10 /10 Exceptional

 

Temperature what’s this )

All-foam mattresses in general are not the best choice for those with concerns about sleeping hot or overheating in bed. The Luxi One shares similar materials and construction to the Luxi mattress, though it has shallower cushioning, so more of your body is exposed to air.

For most people that haven't had a past issue of sleeping hot, we don't think the Luxi One bed will be problematic, but if this is a known issue for you, a hybrid bed or bed with more specific cooling features may be a better choice.

Stays “Cool” Rating 5 /10 Average

 

Edge Support what’s this )

Foam mattresses aren’t typically very supportive along the very edge of the mattress—important if you like to sit on the edge of the bed, or if you tend to sleep along the edge. In our tests, the Luxi bed performed well for both sitting and laying on the edge of the mattress, and the Luxi One was even better.  Our tester did not feel like he was melting or rolling off the bed.

Edge Support Rating 7 /10 Good for a foam bed

 

Ease of Repositioning what’s this )

The Luxi One is a firmer mattress than any of the Luxi configurations. Our tester did not have trouble with ease of movement on any of the Luxi mattresses.

Repositioning Rating 8 /10 Very good

 

Green Features what’s this )

For mattress shoppers concerned with the use of natural materials, sustainable manufacturing practices or the like, we offer our subjective evaluation of any efforts taken by the company to make the mattress more green, healthy, or safe. 

In the case of the Luxi mattresses, including the Luxi One, all of the foams used are certified to the CertiPUR-US standard, which verifies that a material has low VOC off-gassing as well as a lack of chemicals and other substances regulated by the CPSC.

In addition, some of the petroleum oils used to make the foams are replaced with plant-based oils. The Luxi website has a page on its sustainability initiatives.

Green Rating 7 /10 Has some certifications and some plant-based oils

 

Adjustable Base Compatibility what’s this )

We did not specifically test the Luxi One on an adjustable base, but we did test the Luxi mattress, and it performed well.

Adjustable Base Use Rating 9 /10 Very compatible

 

Price, Value & Longevity

How Much Does the Luxi One Mattress Cost?

Prices shown are list prices. Remember that GoodBed keeps our site current with the best available discounts on all online mattresses, many of which are exclusive discounts for our readers.

Size Dimensions Mattress GoodBed Discount?
Twin 39" x 75" x 9"  $649 Yes
Twin XL 39" x 80" x 9" $749 Yes
Full (Double) 54" x 75" x 9" $799 Yes
Queen 60" x 80" x 9" $949 Yes
King 76" x 80" x 9" $1,099 Yes
California King 72" x 84" x 9" $1,099 Yes

 

What Are You Getting?

The Luxi One is a 9" all-foam mattress that employs a layer of the company's propriety SBT articulated foam, along with a top layer of synthetic latex in a 4-lb. density. While it lacks the adjustable features of its sister mattress, the Luxi bed, the Luxi One is much less expensive (about $500 less for a queen size), making it a good choice if you prefer a firmer mattress and do not need to adjust the softness on the fly.

 

How Long Will the Luxi One Last?

When it comes to estimating the comfort lifespan of a mattress, we tend to use foam density as our best, albeit imperfect, predictor of how long a foam will retain its shape and resiliency. In the case of the Luxi One mattress, the only question mark in our view is the SBT foam which is of 2.5 lb. density, and since it is proprietary, it does not have a track record.

 

Overall Value

On balance, we feel that Luxi One mattress stacks up very well compared other all-foam mattresses available online in terms of price. It has some interesting proprietary materials that are unique to Luxi, although it lacks the adjustable features of the original Luxi mattress.

Value Rating 8 /10 Good value

 

Other Factors to Consider

Delivery

  • Free delivery to your door

Luxi includes free delivery, which is not particularly unusual among its competitors. Delivery will be to your door, so you are responsible for getting the box into your home and unpacking the mattress.

 

Returns

  • 100-day trial period
  • Full refund with proof of donation

Luxi offers buyers a 100-day trial period, and requires that buyers keep the mattress for a minimum of 30 days. The company requires proof of donation to initiate a refund (they will help you find a place to donate the mattress). See: Luxi return policy.

 

Warranty

  • Warranty Length: 10 years
  • Indentation Coverage: 1.5” and above

One of the biggest, if not THE biggest complaints about any mattress from consumers regards body impressions — the inability of a mattress to spring back, eventually creating a low spot/sinkhole in the mattress. As such, mattress warranties all contain a term defining how big a sag or ‘body impression’ (measured when no one is on the mattress) is considered a defect, and thus covered under the warranty. The industry standard for mattresses is generally between ¾” and 1.5”. Luxi has chosen to cover indentations that meet or exceed 1.5" which is certainly on the high end of average. Practically speaking, that means any softening or sagging would need to be at least that deep before the warranty would offer you protection. See: Luxi warranty policy.

 

Bottom Line: Is the Luxi One Mattress Right for You?

The Luxi One is an all foam bed with some unique materials.Based on our findings, here’s who we think is the best and worst match for a Luxi mattress

BEST if you:

  • Are a stomach sleeper
  • Are easily disturbed by a partner repositioning
  • Prefer a firm mattress
  • Want too edge support

NOT IDEAL if you:

  • Like a slow, melting into the bed memory-foam feel
  • Are primarily a side sleeper
