Where to buy latex mattress?

Hi

I want to buy latex mattress but I am not sure where I can find it except in IKEA. Is there any King koil shop or something like that in Lausanne or Geneva?
Thank you very much for your help, really appreciate it.

If you have transport, there is 2 bed shops that sell them much cheaper than in CH in Pontarlier (over the border in France near us).

Odile, a question.

Are the French mattress sizes the same as the CH ones (i.e. 90x200, 140x200, 160x200, 180x200)?

I seem to remember (many moons ago) that they were different. Still the case?

A quick look shows that they sell both FR and CH sizes. For example, many beds in France still are 190cm long while in CH they are all 200cm.

In CH we have standardized on 140, 160, 180 wide while in FR they have the 110, 130, 140, 150, 160 cm sizes.

The OP just needs to make sure he/she checks the bed/frame size they have and makes sure they get a CH size and not a FR size.

this place is yet to be beaten. Smooth delivery to CH, taxes taken out, top notch product and comfort. Many options. Recommended to several friends and all are happy. This was recommended by fellow EF'r to me. Just look at the prices!

Re: Where to buy latex mattress?

thank you so much for all responses. It's really helpful. Thanks to remind me the mattress size too. I brought my bed-frame from Australia which has size 153*202 I guess I need to buy French mattress size then.
