Classic Range

At Norris bedding, we've been hand-making our 9" Classic with open coil springs for generations. In fact, it's not unusual for us to collect a 30 year old Classic when delivering a new one, as these mattresses have always been built to last.


Hand made to measure in the traditional way with an open coil spring unit available in a choice of soft, medium or firm.

Layered with horse hair weaved through hessian and then two layers of cotton.

Tufted with rosettes and encased in our 100% cotton black and white ticking, this mattress will stand the test of time. It also gives a firmer, more responsive feel and can go on any surface.

This mattress can be made in any shape or size, as can the divan. Available in black and white stripe or cream ticking and as zip and link.

The 9" Classic features a solid timber base topped with cotton wool felt and covered in matching cream or striped ticking - although we can use your own fabric on request. All our divans are fitted with shepherd castors for ease of movement.

For all bed base and frame options please see the link below.

Horsehair creates an excellent micro-climate, keeping us comfortable in warm and cold conditions. 

Horsehair is very resilient by nature and has fantastic ventilating properties, the hollow fibre transports humidity away from the body and ensures a comfortable micro-climate.

Horsehair is used by the top-quality bedding manufacturers and upholsterers to provide their products with greater durability and comfort.



Wool is 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable. Wool isolates warmth, is healthy, breathable and controls humidity.

It will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.


Almost pure cellulose, cotton is the world’s most widely used natural fibre. The main reasons for this are it’s softness and breathability.

Cotton absorbs moisture readily which makes cotton comfortable in hot weather.
