Fact: The Golden State Warriors’ Andre Iguodala puts sleep first.

The Golden State Warriors’ Andre Iguodala has a, “…newfound devotion to analyzing and refining his sleeping habits.” (Huffpost Sports) He has spent the last few years prioritizing his favorite TV shows over sleep, but that has now changed. He received specific directions on how to improve his bedtime habits from an expert at Stanford University. The Steps include:

  1. No cell phone or computer in the bedroom after 11:15 pm
  2. Breathing exercises

Getting more rest improves exhaustion levels, decreasing injury risk and improving shooting performance. A study showed that Iguodala, “…exhibited a 29 percent gain in points per minute and a 37 percent drop in turnovers per game when he slept an adequate number of hours.”

If more sleep helped Iguodala win a MVP title and Championship, imagine what it can do for you.

Fun Fact Friday: Going Online

September 29th, 2015


Did you know that back in 1995 we put our new pressure relief mattress on the World Wide Web with the idea of providing hospitals and institutions with information? Virtually no facilities came… but boy did the rest of the world! Soon we were shipping our components around the world. Back when going online was a new concept, FloBeds was smart enough to take advantage of the new technology.

Natural Talalay Latex vs. Blended Talalay Latex

Many customers ask- what is the difference between Natural and Original Blended Latex? Well look, touch and feel is the same. Natural Latex is made with 100% Natural Talalay and produced using no fillers, petrochemicals. The Natural is made with 100% milk from the rubber tree. We source our Natural Latex from Radium in the Netherlands. FloBeds 100% Natural Latex is biodegradable and Oekotex Certified (Europe’s highest environmental consumer product standard) to be free of harmful substances or chemicals.

Original Latex is blended 70% synthetic and 30% natural latex. Our Original Latex come for Latex International. All of our latex is naturally hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial (Bacteria, mold and mildew cannot live in latex) and dust mite resistant (tests prove latex is 3 times more resistant to dust mites than a traditional mattress) making it the perfect mattress material for allergy sufferers or anyone interested in breathing fresh, clean air while they sleep.

Bright-Eyed and Bushy-Tailed Students

September 23rd, 2015

Inside the student mattress

It always seemed like my parents had a better mattress than me. Well, FloBed parents do not make the same mistake. Here is some great news: we sell a version of your mattress that is perfect for your kids!

The Student Mattress features two layers of Talalay Latex to make a 6″ mattress. We use our same Euro Stretch knit organic cotton that we use in all our mattresses. For students we quilted needled wool on all sides to provide a cool Tite-Top surface that breathes and wicks away moisture. And since wool is naturally fire resistant, we don’t have to add chemicals or artificial barriers to meet the Federal Flame Resistant Standard. We use blems, minor defects or laminated cores to create the highly affordable Student Mattress. Per special request, we can make a student mattress out of first quality cores for $100 more.

No more excuses. Nothing but bright-eyed and bushy-tailed smiling students every morning. Ok, maybe we won’t guarantee that, but you know we can guarantee the rest you & your students need!

High Customer Satisfaction Rating

Here at FloBeds customers satisfaction is our top priority. One customer mentioned:

“I stumbled on that site “” and it was here I discovered Flobeds. I noticed them because they had one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings of any manufacturer. That was impressive, especially in such a subjective area as sleep ware. I called Flobeds and bugged their sales staff for a few weeks with questions. They were always courteous and helpful, and knew a lot about their product. I really liked their business model of shipping you the bed in components that you build yourself into what feels best for you. I am a tweak-er so this fit my mode of doing things to a tee. I also like the ability to come back years later and replace components that might be worn out (like the Vzone layer) with new material rather than throwing away something 80% usable and spending another $3-5K. ”
