California King Mattresses

About Our California King Size Mattresses

First used in the 1960s, when a Los Angeles-based furniture company began producing extra-large beds for celebrities, the California king bed is rooted in history. Though the California king never gained the same popularity as the standard king (or Eastern king) size bed, it’s still a mainstay of the mattress industry. Whether you want to sleep like a 1960s Hollywood star, or you’re simply taller than the average person, City Mattress has a California king mattress for you.

A California king mattress is 72”W x 84”L, while a standard king size mattress is 76”W x 80”L. This makes a California king size mattress slightly narrower and longer, which can especially benefit taller sleepers. It’s also a great choice for people who have long, narrow bedrooms, where a regular king size bed might fit more awkwardly, if at all.

Our California King Size Mattress Options

Although California king beds were originally made for the rich and famous, City Mattress offers California king size mattresses for almost any budget. With many brands to choose from, you’ll find California king mattresses from the budget-friendly to the height of luxury. Available in firm, plush, and pillow top comfort levels, there’s a California king size mattress that’s right for you.

When it comes to choosing how your mattress feels, we offer plenty of options. We have California king mattresses that contain soft and supportive memory foam, specially-engineered innersprings, or a combination of the two materials. Some of our California king sizes also have latex foam, which adds an additional layer of luxury. We even have California king size mattresses as a Bed in a Box option! Lastly, many of our California king size mattresses are adjustable friendly, so you can use them with an adjustable bed base.

What Else You Should Know About Our California King Size Mattresses
