I love our business. Most of our expertise is consumed in making a mattress that supports each sleeper the way their body needs. But Valentines Day reminds us that we have another very important role: making a mattress that a couple can snuggle, spoon and go through their lives together in. This side of mattress construction means we have to make a mattress that allows crossing over to the other side as natural as sleeping on your own side.
And we do! Every Flobed has two common layers at the top to make side-shifting as easy as rolling over: Our Luxurious Cover of Organic Stretch Knit Cotton quilted to Organic Wool Cover on top of our pressure relieving one piece Convoluted Talalay Latex Comfort Pad.
The perfect bed… built Just Right to support your body all night long and cozy and intimate all at the same time.
Goldilocks Was Right… so was Saint Valentine!

Buyinga mattress does not need to raise your blood pressure.
We think there are three important things a smart shopper should look for:
- Personalized Comfort Levels
- Ability to Change Comfort Levels
- The Right to get Your Money Back
Add great quality and some of our famous customer service
and you have a Dream Machine!

Good for you…
Good for the whole world!
Your body will thank you for the natural rest and recovery you get from 100% Natural FloBeds. You put 100% into your day, get it back each night our unparalleled line of human support systems.
Natural before it was “Green”.
At FloBeds, we construct our natural latex mattresses with what folks now-a-days call Green materials, like natural rubber, organic cotton and Plein-Air Wool, not because we are jumping on the green bandwagon to sell our wares, but because it is the right thing to do. And because, that’s how we have always done it.

Good for you…

Washington and Lincoln…
Foundation & Freedom…
Join us in celebrating our country”s finest Presidents.
It’s another election year… and we’re all going to need a better night’s sleep as we work to separate what is promised from what is possible. It’s a hard job… working weekends… but if we don’t do it, who will? This country Washington and Lincoln helped build is based on an informed electorate. Democracy needs us to do our job… I’ll study vote and build beds. You do what you do best…

Especially waking up on a FloBed. Where else will you find a mattress manufacturer that wakes up everyday thinking about how each and every customer is sleeping? When one of our customers needs their FloBed a little softer under the hips, or firmer in the lumbar region, we send them the adjustment cores or zones they need. Because a good night’s sleep every night adds up to a good year.
FloBeds, The Original Personally Crafted Mattress. We meant it then, and we mean it in 2012. Remember… your dreams may vary!

Wow… we didn’t make it to Cyber Monday… didn’t count on so many of our customers jumping on our clearance… The warehouse is back in order. Thank you FloBed owners!
Seconds? Latex cores and toppers that are not first quality. A manufacturing mistake (maybe a rough surface) , truck or forklift damage or a core made up of 3 or 4 smaller pieces laminated. We have been providing the best quality latex available anywhere. Others put their latex in a cover and sew it up… you never see it. We let you manipulate your latex cores to make the mattress firmness just right! And you get to see every piece… touch it, squeeze it and appreciate it. So of course we make sure only the best latex goes to our customers.
It only goes to follow we have to set some pieces aside. Some pieces becomes more pieces and soon we start taking up serious warehouse space. So what to do? We decided to have a “Seconds Sale” and offer our beds at a big discount. Save this Thanksgiving weekend. We couldn’t decide whether to call it a Black Friday Sale, Cyber Monday or Clearance Sale. So we went with all three. Welcome to the Black-Friday Cyber-Monday Clearance Sale this Thanksgiving weekend. All our designs: Save! Every one with a new ”First” quality FloBeds cover made of organic cotton stretch knit quilted to organic wool. Inside will be “Second” quality FloBeds Talalay latex components. These beds will sleep the same: just as comfortable, just as adjustable (you even get the Golidlocks Guarantee where you can buy 2 additional firmness cores for $75 for 5 years) and just as durable.

When we started making our Latex Beds in the 1997 we were the only ones in the United States other than the once mighty Englander. Back then Europe had regional manufacturers of latex mattresses. Natura of Canada started showing up at trade shows not too much later. Now, it seems every innerspring company in the country wants to add a couple of inches of latex and say “featuring 100% latex“. It’s a crying shame. A couple of the higher end lines have an all latex mattress, top-to-bottom and side-to-side, and are charging a king’s ransom (but they have a big distribution network to support, suppliers, factories, distributors, retailers and, of course, Madison Avenue). If you find one that is entirely Talalay Latex, like ours, you can expect to pay a thousand or two more than our prices. But back to the question: “Who’s using all the natural latex?“. Here is a graph of what natural rubber is looking like on the commodities market.
Natural Rubber Commodity Prices 2010-2011
I believe three things are affecting the price of rubber.
1) We’re selling so many latex mattresses;)
2) The Chinese and other developing countries are using a lot more rubber, from automobiles to consumer products.
3) Wall Street is making tons of money in the commodities market, and you and I are paying for those bonuses.
We are working hard to keep the price reasonable for you, and, of course, we still back up our beds with the best customer service in the business (some say the best they have seen since they fell in love with Nordstroms). Again, this is where our Manufacturer Direct model works so well for our customers: every increase in product cost does not get marked up 2 or 3 times.

Who says “There’s no such thing as a…
but remember, it only counts under a great mattress!
And we guarantee you’ll love it… or your money back! I remember when Rocky first challenged sales to try and sell more beds with foundations then the wood shop could make. That was one of our most successful events ever! Since then, when spring and summer roll around, and folks are outside, not thinking about how they slept last night… we sometimes kick it up a notch and have a foundation sale.
And boy, when you see the quality of what Rocky and his team put out… you wonder how we can afford to do it.

Sage sleep advice from FloBeds founder, Dave Turner, who also happens to be the Mayor of our fair city of Fort Bragg, California… Really, he’s our founder and our Mayor! We had to give him his own “column”.
Life is too short for a cheap mattress. OK, something original… Quality is important. As my kids say: “Huge”. We don’t cut corners when it comes to the quality of our components. And because of our manufacturer-direct-to-you model, our prices are still reasonable. But right up there with quality and our attention to detail is our attention to YOU. We’re real good at getting your mattress Just Right for your body. And when we don’t, were the best at making it right. We can tune our beds to you. If we can’t… we give your money back. It’s not complicated, but it takes a lot of attention. We promise to give you our attention. I hope you enjoy our new improved look. Thanks Eve.
