(pronounced ka-leh-FOR-nyah keeng)
In the USA, California King is the descriptive term for a mattress, bed frame, bedding, or bed foundation measuring 72″ wide X 84″ long. Also known as a “Western King,” the California King is the longest available standard bedding size and works well for taller people. In the USA, the Standard King, also referred to as the “Eastern King,” is wider but shorter at 76” wide X 80” long. California Queen sizes are less common at 60” wide X 84” long, but with their additional 4” of length over the Standard Queen, they create a more comfortable sleeping surface for those who are 6-foot tall or more.
