Origins Pocket 1500

From £525
Our most popular man-made, natural fibre mattress combines a 1500 pocket-spring unit with layers of luxurious fillings, for a soothingly satisfying sleep experience.
GSM: 1550
Pocket Springs: 1500
Guarantee: 3 Year

The firmness of the mattress you desire is determined by a few factors. Your weight and height, and the mattress of your choice. The upholstery layers are the very top comfort layers and give different degrees of firmness alongside the spring unit. The higher up in the list the mattress is, the firmer it will be in the top upholstery layers. The lower down the list, the softer the initial upholstery layers will feel.

The Origins 1500 is our most popular model in the range. Giving a true Medium feel, this two-sided model simply can’t be beaten by our competitor’s offerings.

First Layer: 300 gsm Wool: This component is blended with (nominal amount) silk to give the primary layer beneath the fabric a gloriously soft cushion.

Second Layer: 750GSM Very soft Polyester: This coupled with the layers below brings the level of upholstery quite high. However, when compressed through tufting gives these layers a medium comfort but also has sufficient support by use of the springs.

Third Layer: 500GSM Polyester: This is the cushioning layer that acts as the dampener between the insulator layer below and the soft polyester that will follow.

Fourth Layer: One-inch foam insulator: Directly on top of the spring unit we use a one-inch layer of HD foam. This cushions you from the spring unit but also works with you enabling the pocket springs to rise and fall as you move.

The stretch knit mattress side panels are machine stitched. Traditionally hand-tufted. Even though the mattress side panels are 9″ deep, the undulations caused by the abundant upholstery brings the mattress depth to a more realistic 13″.

How it will feel

Origins Platform divan bases are 12″ with or without drawers 2″ for Glides not Castors making 14″ total height.

The drawers on the Origins are 32″ wide, 20″ deep and 9″ high.

You can have 2 or 4 drawer options. If using bedside tables you may want to have 2 full size and 2 continental drawers so the drawers next to the bedside tables can be opened fully. Continental drawers will have the same depth and height as the normal, but width will be 17.5 inches.

All our bases come with standard headboard fixing grommets present. To find out more such as the sizes and splits that Divans come in please read more here.


The Origins Pocket 1500 is a substantial well built and well filled and ultimately a well-priced mattress. There really isn’t much out there that can be deemed a good comparison for this price.

The side panels may be machine side stitched but the price absolutely justifies this. Although, classed as a 9″ mattress (the depth of the side panels) the number of fillings contained make the surfaces protrude so when hand-tufted creates a sumptuously deep mattress bringing the overall depth to a more realistic 13″.

All in all, this is a thoughtfully conceived mattress. Every component used works together to create an outstanding mattress for the money. Bear in mind when doing comparisons, that this is a full double-sided mattress – not one-sided.

  1. Karen & Andy

    Our only regret was not choosing John Ryan in the first place !! It was only a double disaster with another company (now looked on as a blessing in disguise), that we came across the John Ryan site and didn’t look back.
    As we digested the easy to follow and endless info about mattresses, we soon realised how naive we and most people are when it comes to choosing a mattress. Armed with our newly acquired knowledge (and yes we couldn’t help showing it off to anyone who would listen), we narrowed our choice to two. We then spoke to JR to discuss and help make a final decision and the rest is history.
    We have been sleeping on our Origins Pocket 1500 double for 6 weeks now and can honestly say it is worth every penny.You can immediately see the quality and from the first night feel and benefit from it’s comfort. We have completely differing weights yet there is no disturbance to the other when turning over.
    For us JR proved to be an excellent company which provides you with all you need to know on it’s website, backed by friendly knowledgeable staff and a very good reliable delivery service.
    We have no hesitation in recommending JR and if anyone dares to mention mattresses we do !!

    Came across John Ryan beds by chance on the web when I was serching for a double bed for my son. All the bed shops/sites were made so confusing with different deals for this and that, strange pricing structures etc, it was a revelation to find JR beds, simple no nonsense structure and pricing. All customer contacts were very polite, helpful and knowlegeable, including the delivery guys. One further comment is that the bed came double wrapped in a really strong plastic which gave the final consumer, me, the confidence that everything inside was going to be of a very good quality. Don’t bother serching anywhere else for a bed just give these guys & gals a shout.

    Amazing company!!! King size origins 1500

    I had spent a year researching what mattress to get i didn’t have a lot of money to spend and nearly purchased from ebay (£1000 super pocket sprung reduced to £200!!) Then found this company and was astouinted by the knowledge and honesty. I decided it was better to splash out on something that was going to last (buy cheap buy twice!) and am delighted that I did – it is so comfortable!!! the customer service was brilliant and teh delivery company too – they carried it upstairs and even took the packaging away with them! Briliant never have i slept on a more comfortable matress!! Sarah

    After deliberating for a few months, I decided to order from John Ryan and was not disappointed. The base and mattress ordered is of excellent quality and so comfortable. Would not think twice about ordering from them again. The service and delivery was also excellent.

  5. Kathryn Boat

    We brought a king size and zip and link for our holiday home in Cornwall. The service we received from John Ryan was great from ordering to delivery and we had to change the delivery date a few times no problem. The house wasn’t the easiest to deliver to or two flights of stairs but it was still no problem. These beds have to be the most comfortable beds iv slept on and they look and feel really luxurious. Our qests say so too. Such good value for money we’re now looking to buy one for home. Thank you.

Have you ever thought about buying a mattress but found yourself scratching your head at the kind of information that’s available? There’s a reason for that. The mattress industry is incredibly tight-lipped about the contents of a product because they are easy to replicate. Mattress manufacturers give as much information as they want a customer to know. That’s not how we operate.
