Product Description

The Shakespeare Leonardo 1000 mattress is part of the excellent Pocket Sprung Collection, from this West Midlands based manufacturer. The Leonardo has a 1000 Pocket Spring unit and a deep layer of natural fillings on the surface, including Wool and Silk.

This all-time best selling mattress has been in our Top 10 list for more than 6 years, and rightly so. This mattress punches well above it's weight and offers the best value that we can offer.

This Shakespeare mattress has a 1000 Pocket Spring unit at its' core. This spring unit offers precise and instant support for the body, promoting good posture and ensuring there are no early morning aches and pains. Each spring is independent from the surrounding springs, which means there is zero compromise on the support offered.

The Leonardo comes complete with a breathable Silk knitted luxury cover to give better air circulation. This Shakespeare mattress features generous layers of natural fillings, including Wool, Silk and other natural fibres, which add to the unique comfortable feel.

40mm of Relfex foam adds a responsive pressure relieving dynamic to the mattress. Reflex foam compliments the other technologies within the Leonardo by helping muscle recovery as the foam instantly pushes back as you place weight on it.

The Shakespeare Leonardo is a hand tufted mattress. This is a traditional technique of mattress upholstery where the fillings are secured by hand with tufts from the top of the mattress to the bottom (the dimple like effect on the surface). This technique prevents lumps from building up within the mattress which create uncomfortable pressure points.

    Good but heavy
    This is a good mattress. It is actually our second one but this time it feels much heavier, it is hard to move around. Comfy as ever though.

    Amazing company, quick delivery!!
    I bought THIS particular set for my 88 year old Mom because it had NATURAL FIBRES in it - i.e. silk, etc.
    I haven't slept on it, but I would just like to say the efficiency of THIS company (I ordered the bed over the phone and who I spoke to was VERY HELPFUL), and, I was with my Mom when the bed was delivered and I have NEVER seen such 'quick' work!!! They packed up and took my Mom's old bed away swiftly and set up her NEW bed just as fast and the rest is history.
    I got this bed for her in 2015 and it still looks like new!!!
    VERY IMPRESSED and at the moment am recommending the home where she lives gets THIS BED for their GUEST ROOM (where the mattresses are TOTALLY COLLAPSED!!), so hopefully the wardens follow my advise!!
    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOUR STAFF - made buying a mattress I'd never seen a BREEZE!!!

Frequently Asked Questions -

Is the Leonardo mattress delivered rolled or flat?

The Shakespeare Leonardo mattress is delivered flat, and cannot be rolled.

I bought a Shakespeare Leonardo mattress from you and now need a new base. What base do you recommend should be used with this mattress?

Any type of base will be fine with the Leonardo mattress. If you do opt for a slatted base, then please ensure the slats are not more than 7cm apart from each other.

Do you take the old mattress away for a fee ?

Yes, we can do that when we deliver the Shakespeare Leonardo Mattress. You will see this option in the checkout once you have entered your address.

Is the Leonardo mattress delivered rolled up or flat?

The Shakespeare Leonardo 1000 Mattress is delivered flat, and cannot be rolled up. We deliver with our 2-man crew to the room of choice for free.

Where is the Shakespeare Leonardo 1000 mattress made?

The Shakespeare Leonardo mattress is made in Birmingham, England.

I want to buy the Shakespeare Leonardo 1000 Divan and Matress. I'll but the 4 drawer version. Are all 4 drawers full width or are they 2 full width and 2 half width?

Nick, You can indeed buy the Divan as a 2+2 combination, which allows for bedside cabinets etc. This would be the same price and is something you could state in the comments section of the checkout, or you could of course order by phone!

  • Breathability

    Mattresses need to breathe. With the amount of fillings and areas of space within a mattress, they can quickly hold heat and moisture. Over time this can influence the way a mattress behaves and also effect the life span of a mattress. 

    Manufacturers have developed different ways of tackling the problem of Breathability in mattresses. Some brands have used vents to allow air to pass through the mattress. Some brands use state-of-the-art materials to cover the mattress, such as Coolmax or Outlast. Memory Foam has a reputation of storing heat and moisture, as foam requires heat to soften up.Memory Foam brands have overcome this problem by applying Coolmax and Outlast, they also use Open Cell technology. This technique is to simply allow the foam to settle with larger spaces between the foam cells. This allows heat and moisture to move freely without getting trapped.

    Some mattresses are created in such a way that they do not require any additional Breathability methods. These mattresses are generally the entry level mattresses with Open Coil spring units and not a great deal of fillings.

  • Breather Vent

    See Vents.

  • Firmness

    MyNextMattress is developing a new and unique solution to the Firmness scale accuracy. Not seen anywhere else in the World, we will be measuring the Firmness of all our mattresses precisely and in detail.

    We are the only company in the Country that will actually measure the Firmness of a mattress and give a grading out of 10. We are always aware that choosing your next mattress can be a difficult and time consuming process, therefore we strive to give as much information as possible on every mattress we sell.

    The way our system works is by applying weight to a mattress. We will apply weight gradually and measure the amount the mattress dips. The more weight, the more the mattress will 'sink'. We would then measure the distance the mattress dips and plot these measurements (weight and distance) on a graph. This graph can then be used to tell us the Firmness category the mattress fits into, 7 out of 10 for instance.

    Our Firmness Device provides a central rod which we apply weights to, on the bottom end there is a disc which pushes into the mattress. The top of this rod supports the weights and will sink according to the 'give' in a mattress. We measure from this point.

    As a result of this unique technique, it will be possible for you to shop by the firmness of a mattress, this is not possible anywhere else.

  • Pocket Sprung

    Pocket Sprung units are an adaption of the traditional open coil/continuous spring unit. By placing each spring in its own individual 'pocket' (a fabric sock-like pouch), the spring is not joined to any other part of the mattress. The pocket that supports the spring is then joined to its neighbouring pockets and this effect creates a unique feel.

    By creating a spring unit in this way, it allows the springs to move independently, rather than sharing the pressure with surrounding springs. This effect allows for much more accurate contour following and a more comfortable feel overall.

    If you were to push your hand into a traditionally sprung mattress, the area around your hand would dip/sink too. With Pocket Springs, this sunken area is much more remote and therefore more accurately follows the contours of the pressure source. There are differences in the techniques used to create Pocket Springs, but more or less they remain the same.

  • Turn / No Turn

    Some mattresses require turning over, to aid even settlement. Others do not require turning, but will still require rotating.

  • Warranty

    Every mattress we sell comes with at least a 12 month manufacturers guarantee, though most come with much longer guarantees. To find out what mattress warranty is included with your purchase, look out for the rosette on the top right corner of the mattress page. All new goods are sold with a minimum 12-month manufacturers guarantee. Full details are available on request. In addition to the manufacturers guarantee MyNextMattress offers a limited extended mattress warranty. This warranty varies in length item by item. You must keep all your purchase records as they will be needed in the event of a claim. The warranty is applied as follows:

    • The mattress warranty is against faults in manufacture, not wear and tear or damage.
    • The mattress must always be used with a mattress protector, turned and cleaned as per the manufacturers instructions and must be unsoiled at the time that the claim is lodged.
    • The claim must be registered with MyNextMattress by email or in writing. All details of the claim must be lodged with MyNextMattress by email or in writing.

    If the claim is accepted the following process will apply:

    • We will arrange to collect the goods and return them to us for inspection.
    • The carrier reserves the right to refuse to collect items that are not packaged suitably or which is unhygienic.
    • We may require pre payment for the costs of the collection in some circumstances.
    • If we validate the claim we will contact you to arrange the replacement goods to be dispatched to you and delivered to you on a date that is convenient for you.
    • The replacement item can be any item from our then current range.
    • The difference in price from the warranty covered item is payable by you, along with the cost of collecting the original item.

    There will be an allowance granted against the replacement item according to the following scale.

    • If the claim is validated within the first two years - 40% of the original price will be credited.
    • If the claim is validated in year three of the purchase -25% of the original price will be credited.
    • If the claim is validated in year four of the purchase - 15% of the original price will be credited.
    • If the claim is validated in year five or (if warranty is for longer than five years then any subsequent year up to the warranty period) -10% of the original price will be credited.

    The warranty is only applicable to the original purchaser and is only valid if approved by MyNextMattress. It should be considered as extra peace of mind in case of manufacturing defects that arise after the manufacturers mattress guarantee has expired. It should not be regarded as a guarantee that any item will last for any particular period of time, or as a guarantee against deterioration in performance. It is in addition to your statutory rights. There is no entitlement to a cash payment in lieu of the replacement. The replacement item must be at the same or higher price than the original.
