What Makes Silk & Snow Different
True High-Density Foam
At Silk & Snow, we strictly use 4lb High-Density Memory Foam in our S&S mattresses. 4lb memory foam ensures your mattress is not only more comfortable, but also built to last. Other companies like Douglas claim to use "high-density" foam, but often use foams that are 2.5 lbs in density.
Total Transparency
We stand by our products and what goes in to them. That’s why we offer total transparency and disclose everything about our materials and manufacturers. Douglas does not do this.
Easily Washable
Everybody wants to enjoy a clean sleep. That's why our S&S Mattress features a fully removable and machine washable cover, which makes cleaning an absolute breeze!

Douglas Mattress Canada Overview

Douglas is a sub-brand of (previously Novosbed), who has been in the bed-in-a-box industry since 2009. The Douglas was launched in 2017 to respond to the growing need for foam bed-in-a-box mattresses in Canada.

Douglas Mattress Construction and Materials

Just like the mattresses we offer at Silk & Snow, the Douglas mattress is manufactured and constructed in Canada.

The Douglas Mattress features an all foam construction comprised of a cover and 3 layers of polyurethane foam. The cover is made from a blend of 68% Polyester, 31% Tencel, and 1% Spandex, and the first layer (or comfort layer) is comprised of 2" of 2.5lb cooling gel foam. The next layer (the transition layer) is 2" of "Elastex" foam, which is a synthetic foam that is made to mimic the properties of latex. Lastly, the base layer is comprised of 6" of polyurethane foam, for added support and durability.

Douglas Mattress Firmness and Feel

We tested the Douglas Mattress for firmness and feel, and in our opinion, we rated the Douglas Mattress at a 6/10 (on a scale from very soft to very firm) in terms of firmness.

We thought that the top layer allowed for a slight sinking feeling, while the base layer provided a marginal level of support to the mattress. You will not feel as "sunken in" to the mattress when compared to other varieties of memory foam mattresses, but the overall feel of the mattress is not as responsive as a mattress with coils, for example.

Where Can I Buy the Douglas Mattress?

All mattresses offered by can be found on the website, including the Douglas Mattress. The Douglas Mattress is currently not available for purchase in any other way.

Does the Douglas Mattress Smell?

Some customers have reported a smelling a sublt odour when first unboxing their Douglas Mattress. This smell is referred to as "offgasing" in the mattress industry, and is not considered harmful to human health. In order to allow this smell to dissipate, we recommend letting the Douglas Mattress "breathe" for 24-28 hours after opening it.

The History of Douglas Mattress

As previously stated, the Douglas Mattress was launched by in 2017 in response to the growing consumer demand for foam bed-in-a-box mattresses. was founded in Edmonton, Alberta in 2009 as Novosbed by siblings Sam Prochazka, Andy Prochazka, and Helenka Prochazka. Novosbed initially only sold their flagship mattress (the Novosbed) before offering different varieties of mattresses. Novosbed officially became in 2019 to reflect this change in brand strategy.
