Nuvanna LLC is very new to the bed-in-a-box industry. Their primary mission is to enable their customers to live a balanced life, supported at night by the Nuvanna bed. Nuvanna is specifically targeting the “overstressed” millennial market.
Some key strengths of the Nuvanna mattress include:
- Responsive customer service: The Nuvanna support team quickly answered all of my questions and even provided me with a direct line to the founder & CEO, Alvaro Vaselli, should I have any additional inquiries.
- Additional support products are coming: Currently Nuvanna only sells mattresses, but they are building a wellness community, and plan to expand their offerings to include additional products that support a healthy lifestyle.
Potential drawbacks of the Nuvanna mattress include:
- Single firmness level: The Nuvanna bed comes in only one firmness level. While this should suit the majority of sleepers, there will be some consumers who prefer a more or less firm sleeping experience.
- Availability: The Nuvanna mattress is only available online. While they offer a 100 night trial, the only way to try a Nuvanna mattress is to buy one.

About the Nuvanna Mattress
Nuvanna Mattress Specifications
The Nuvanna bed is an all-foam mattress constructed of 3 layers and encased in Tencel mattress cover. Nuvanna has not released density details directly on their website, however their customer service team was happy to provide the additional PCF details. The details of each layer are as follows:
- The cover: 100% Tencel, an environmentally friendly material made with minimal waste and low emissions.
- The top layer: 2 inches of hybrid gel-foam meant to dissipate heat and keep the sleeper cool overnight. PCF 3.
- The middle layer: 2 inches of open-cell memory foam meant to reduce bounce and isolate movement. PCF 4.
- The bottom layer: 6 inches of high-density, open-cell foam meant to provide support and reduce sinking. PCF 1.8.
Like many other bed-in-a-box options, Nuvanna foams are certified as CertiPUR, which means their mattress is produced with reduced emissions and environmental stewardship in mind.
Where it’s Made
The Nuvanna mattress is made in the USA.
Buying Logistics + Where to Buy
The Nuvanna mattress is available directly through their website: https://nuvanna.com or on Amazon.com.
Sleep Trial + Refunds
Nuvanna offers a 100 night trial period. If the Nuvanna bed doesn’t work for you, Nuvanna will arrange a free pick-up for your mattress and it will be donated to The Salvation Army, or another charitable organization partnered with Nuvanna. You will receive a full refund.
Delivery + Shipping Policy
Nuvanna mattresses ship free, unless you live in Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, or Puerto Rico, in which case you will pay a $100 shipping fee. You can expect delivery in 2-5 business days.
All mattresses are shipped in a 19″ x 19″ x 42″ cardboard box. The weight of the shipment varies by mattress size and is detailed in the following table:
|Mattress Size||Shipping Weight|
|Twin XL||53 lbs|
|California King||95 lbs|
Setting up the Nuvanna mattress should be relatively simple. After removing the mattress from the box, you’ll be able to unroll it and remove the plastic. Within a few minutes, the Nuvanna mattress should expand to it’s full size.
The Nuvanna comes with a 10 year limited warranty. The warranty covers manufacturing defects including unraveled stitching, foam splitting, sagging, or permanent body imprints. If within the 10 year period something goes wrong, Nuvanna will either replace the single problematic part of the mattress or provide you with a completely new mattress.
Nuvanna does not offer a haul-away service to remove your old mattress. However, if your current mattress is in good condition, they will schedule a Salvation Army pick-up for you at no cost.
Mattress Performance + Support + Firmness
While there are minimal reviews online for the newly available Nuvanna mattress, current customers seem to be very satisfied with the support and minimal motion transfer the Nuvanna provides. Firmness for Nuvanna is reportedly between a 6 and 7 on the firmness scale. The Nuvanna bed stays cool overnight and provides a supportive night’s sleep, despite the soft top layer.
Longevity + Durability
The support layer of the Nuvanna bed is made of a high-performance 1.8 PSF foam that should prove durable and last for many years.
Like most memory foam mattresses, Nuvanna provides minimal motion transfer. The second layer of the Nuvanna mattress is designed specifically to absorb motion without compromising softness. If you share the bed with a partner at night, this second layer will allow you to sleep through the night without waking up every time your partner rolls over or changes position.
All foam mattresses will produce some off-gassing in the first few days as they expand and settle into position. We found no reports to indicate the Nuvanna is different in this regard.
Given that the Nuvanna bed is made for minimal motion transfer and limited bounce, customers with an eye towards intimacy may find a latex, innerspring, or hybrid model more accommodating.
Nuvanna bed has minimal motion transfer with a soft, body-conforming top layer. Individuals who sleep on their back or stomach will find the Nuvanna bed conforms to their bodies without sink. Because of the firm supportive layer and the minimal motion transfer, individuals who sleep on their sides may prefer something with a bit more give.
Nuvanna is a very recent addition to the bed-in-a-box industry and only began selling mattresses in January 2017. They do not yet have a rating from the Better Business Bureau; however, they do have a chat feature enabled on their website, and their support team was very responsive to questions.
