BED BANDITS (2)


“We’ve had the FloBed about 6 months now and love it! We were both experiencing morning back pain with our previous pillow top mattress. After researching the qualities of latex mattresses we decided to try it. We were very impressed with the ability to create your own firmness levels to match your body type and preferences. Very easy to put together and the best news – no more back pain!”

Moving Your Mattress

You don’t have to dread moving your mattress any longer! FloBeds are made up of multiple parts so you can move your mattress piece by piece.

Here are the instructions for shrinking latex cores:

  1. Fold the core in thirds and place in larger plastic bag.
  2. Use vacuum to shrink it down to small bag size.
  3. Slide it into smaller bag.

Calling Paul

January 21st, 2016

summer deals!

Have you noticed someone new answering the phone at FloBeds? That is the one and only Paul. He started a few months ago and has become an important part of our team. We interviewed Paul so you can get to know him better:

Q: What do you like about working at FloBeds?

A: I love the atmosphere! When I first started working here I repeatedly asked myself, “What are you doing here pal? You are not a salesman. You hate talking people into anything!” But I soon realized the awesome family aka management, puts no pressure into selling beds. The product is so good it sells itself! All I do is provide service and information, I love it. The office is completely open with all the desks facing each other, whenever I have a question or when someone needs anything we just vocally launch it across the room and answers come flying back. On a typical day we get to hang out and share thoughts about basketball and other tough guy things, while working of course ^_^, oh and there is always nice upbeat music playing.

Q: What is your ideal FloBed model and firmness setup?

A: I am currently sleeping on an Eastern King Deluxe placed on the Euro Slat Foundation, with the cores setup as medium over firm on top of extra firm. I literally dream about this bed while sleeping on it. I am juggling three jobs and the feeling I get when I come home and melt into this mattress is indescribable. <—- did not mean to sound like an ad.. its just awesome!

Q: Do you prefer Natural or Blended Latex?

A: I tried but I really can’t tell the difference. My bed at home is blended latex and I have taken quite a few quality control office naps on our 100% natural version. I have come to the conclusion that more office naps will be required for final judgement.

Q: What do you like about speaking with FloBeds’ customers?

A: I like taking care of people, and I love that everyone who calls in is calling for the same exact reason; they are looking for that good melt into your mattress sleep, and I have been given the tools to help them make it happen. BRING IT ON FRIENDS!!!

 

Restored Body Upon Awakening

January 10th, 2016

“She turned to the sunlight And shook her yellow head,And whispered to her neighbor- -Winter is dead.”

FloBeds is proud to craft beds for some very talented athletes. Everyone deserves a good night’s sleep, and that can be especially hard for athletes. That is what we are here for! Here is what snowboarder Hannah Teter thinks about FloBeds:

“I could not be more happy about my FloBed… it provides everything that I‘ve ever been looking for, from comfort to recovery. It is so important to sleep on a healthy Organic bed that can give you more than just a good night’s sleep, but also a restored body upon awakening. I wish that I could pack this bed in my bag and bring it everywhere with me!” -Hannah Teter

What Are You Sleeping On?

December 7th, 2015

All Natural Mattress

Our cover provide a soft and plush surface for you to rest your body on after a long day. The Cotton Euro Knit quilted to wool on all six sides makes a FloBed different than the other latex mattresses out there. Our wool is Pure organic Plein-Air Wool® fiber used to promote maximum airflow around your body, and provide natural moisture- wicking. . We don’t use any poly-foam in our covers because it breaks down in 4 or 5 years, it sucks in dust and moisture, and it doesn’t breath. We don’t use a pillow-top in our beds.  The cover should not interfere with the pressure relief and core support of the components beneath.

Since our covers are made with wool it is extremely important to remember that our covers are not machine washable. We do suggest hanging covers out in the sun 1-2 times per year. We also suggest the very popular St. Dormeir Wool Mattress Protector. This mattress protector is completely machine washable. Breathability keeps you cool in the summer, and cozy in the winter, and it lasts years longer than polyester.

Just pick the firmness combination that is going to work best for your specific needs and get ready to start sleeping better.

4 Star Review

4-Star–We bought a “latex” mattress about 9 years ago. It started to sag so we went
mattress shopping. We tried 4 different high end models and none were
soft/supportive enough! My hubby found this site and we ordered firm soft
soft for him and firm medium soft for me. Perfect! We are currently using our
old box springs but are looking forward to upgrading to the slat base. We
want to eventually put these in our guest rooms as well! We love them!!!
