Habitat Furnishings makes adjustable air bed mattresses in Baltimore, Maryland and is owned by United States WaterMattress. 

The company sells three different models called Arise, Aloft, and Ascend, ranging in price from $1,099-$2,099. Each model has its own special combination of materials, making each a more comfortable mattress for different sleeping positions and types of pressure relief.  

Habitat Arise Digital Air Bed is a firm feeling model best for back and stomach sleeping positions. It includes dense, high-performance support foam.

Habitat Aloft Digital Air Bed is a medium support level option for side, back, and stomach sleepers. It uses the same dense support foam as the Arise, as well as memory foam to help with pressure relief.

Habitat Ascend Digital Air Bed uses memory foam, in addition to natural Talaylay latex for a soft, plush comfort level.

The Good

  • Mattress Options and Customization
  • Free Shipping
  • Free Trial
  • Warranty

Mattress Options

Getting a good night's rest is not one-size-fits-all. Habitat tries to combat this with their three different firmness options. Each combines air bed technology with foam layers of varying materials to make a hybrid mattress with unique qualities.

Every model contains an air chamber made of a natural rubber, but you get to choose which type of foam is better for your comfort and sleep: either the Arise model's high-density foam for more support, the Aloft's combo high-density and memory foam mattress, or the most popular plush-feeling Ascend option with memory and organic latex foam. 

The bed comes with two digital controllers (only one for a twin), allowing you to adjust the firmness on each side of the bed. If you share a bed, but each of you prefer a different comfort level for your sleeping surface, you can adjust.

Free Shipping

Shipping is free in the continental United States; however, you have to contact the company about shipping rates for Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada. 

Free Trial

Habitat offers a 90-night, no questions asked trial on its airbeds. There is a $99 return shipping charge which will be deducted from your refund.


Habitat offers a lifetime limited warranty. The "limited" part can mean different things coming from different companies. From Habitat, everything is covered 100 percent for the first two years of ownership. After that, you get 50 percent off all replacement components for the lifetime of your mattress.

The Bad

  • Price and Financing
  • Limited Sizes
  • Setup and Removal
  • Trying It Out

Price and Financing

This is not just a run-of-the-mill air mattress. They all cost over $1,000; however shipping in the United States is free, unless you live in Alaska or Hawaii.

There are no special financing options available currently. You must pay with a credit or debit card.

Limited Sizes

Habitat Furnishings doesn’t offer Full or standard Twin size airbeds, although Twin XL is available. Shoppers looking to use this mattress on a pre-existing Full or Twin size platform bed or foundation will be disappointed. 

Setup and Removal

The company doesn't use any special mattress delivery service. The package ships via FedEx Freight in a giant 16" x 38" x 80" box. However, this service is a few steps above ground shipping, so you will get a phone call to schedule the delivery once the package arrives at the local delivery terminal. 

Your package should ship from the Baltimore, Maryland factory within three business days and it takes an additional three to five business days to arrive depending on your location. Barring any issues, it will take upwards of two weeks to get to you. 

As this isn't a mattress delivery service, there is no professional setup or removal of your old mattress available, free or otherwise. Setup takes about 20 to 30 minutes and you can watch an assembly tutorial online for help or call the customer service team for setup assistance at 1-800-313-2591. 

Trying It Out

The no-questions-asked, 90-day trial is a benefit for those who may still be worried about tossing and turning on a $1,000 mattress that just isn't a good fit.    

The Bottom Line

This hybrid air-foam mattress line offers enough options to appease any type of sleeper and the adjusting comfort level options should be a great help for uncertain shoppers. This is an expensive mattress and the lack of financing options may deter some people shopping for a mattress online. However, if this is in your price range and you want to try Habitat Furnishings, its free shipping and 90-day trial make this a low-risk commitment. In addition, the warranty option for the lifetime of the mattress is a great perk.

Purchased the Ascend in May of 2015. The only setting that was comfortable was Hi, which is 50. For the last 2 years, it needed to be filled everyday. Cannot hold a number even through the night. Could be either the air pump or the air bladders. The idea that you are going to return the product is unrealistic. It's way to large to package up in a normal residence. Would not recommend. I wasted thousands.

Adjustable air mattress which is complex to adjust... top pads fail quickly leaving indented sleeping areas. Have had them replaced and they quickly fail.
