It's been about 6 months since we purchased our mattress
and I can't stress enough how much of a difference it has
made. I'm a big guy (6'6 about 275lbs) and this mattress
is like a dream compared to our innerspring mattress we
replaced. It has completely ruined me for hotels and other
travel because where I used to LOVE trying out different
mattresses that were better than what I had at home, now
I KNOW I'm not going to come even close to as
comfortable as our FloBed.
Their customer service is also excellent. They had a sale
running and it ran out before my wife and I could decide
what mattress to buy and when I called in the following
day they still honored the sale price. Overall I couldn't be
happier with this product and I have recommended it to
anyone I encounter that is looking for a new mattress.
Dear David and all Employees...
I have slept on two waterbeds, my entire adult life, nearly 35 years, now. The first was a full bladder type, the second a soft side tube type. I worried, because of my disabilities, when the latter finally leaked, that I would not be able to manage a waterbed again, should I ever have to live by myself.
The answer came in the middle of the night, when I was researching different options, online. I couldn't believe what I saw. The more I read, the more unbelievable it all sounded. To make a long story short, the bed we ordered arrived and waterbeds of any kind became history. The laborious concerns of having to set it up and take it down are gone. The concerns of water weight on the second floor are gone. Also gone, are the concerns of breathing chemicals with any other options.
Your company is definitely a God-send, a Gift to this world. I am dumbfounded by every single aspect of this phenomenon. I have Fibromyalgia and several other conditions which produce enormous pain and almost impossible sleep. The softness of this Latex must be experienced to believe. Putting the bed together with my limited capacity, with another individual was a piece of cake and pure joy, I must say. I enjoyed every moment of this experience! It was so easy! I chose the Softest latex I could, and found, with my level of pain, the Medium to be uncomfortable. One night on the Medium, and I knew I had chosen correctly. So far, neither of us has made any adjustments to the Slats as you had sent them. For many years, we whined and complained our way through vacations wishing for the waterbed back at home. IF we had not found "Flobeds.com" we definitely would be sleeping on a waterbed, again. There isn't anything else that compares to them, bar none, except for THIS experience. It is a dream not having to smell chemicals! It is definitely a good feeling, knowing we have not damaged the environment, and it is a great feeling, knowing we are supporting the livelihood of individuals who have chosen work which sustains the environment and enhances the lives and health of human beings, as well.
David, you should be SO proud of this endeavor! It is a powerful statement at every level. We are extremely grateful to have found you. This little tiny ad on the right hand margin of my computer screen is how it all happened. It will be our profound pleasure to tell people about our experience! Perhaps, I will write again, but for now, I just wanted to drop a line to let you know, that our lives have changed for the better because of all of you, each and every one of you. If I could, I would be blessing the sheep, and bringing them something special. I would be writing to the individuals who brought the Latex to our lives, as well. What a fine and extraordinary Product! What extraordinary people! We will think of all of you in Fort Bragg, and the Sheep, and the Latex manufacturers, for the rest of our lives. We hope the wonderful gentleman who had critical surgery, is getting better! Thank you for your wonderful assistance, in answering all our questions, and in getting things to us so rapidly. You have been delightful! We are anticipating years of enhanced sleep and relief from pain. And we are so grateful not to have to worry about waterbed concerns.
Good-bye for now. Give our love to the Sheep! You have brought an aesthetic sleep to our world! Thank you so very, very much!
Sincerely, Randal Carpenter and Chris Mc Cary
About 5 years ago I had back aches almost all the time because of my work as a Nursing Assistant at the area hospital. My daughter had gotten a FloBed, and for several years encouraged me to buy one. After a lot of thought, and more pain, I decided to get one. It came in really small boxes compared to what I had expected. I took them out and laid them on the bed in the order I thought I would like, with firm and soft on the side I sleep on the most. Almost immediately I noticed I was sleeping longer through the night, not waking up every time I had to turn over because of my pains. After about a year, I decided to change my side of the bed to firm with medium on top. That is when I really felt the best relief. Now I don't have those back aches, and other joint pains from sleeping on those metal coils. I am able to get a really good rest. I am so glad I got that bed, I wish I had gotten it years sooner. If I had ordered one after I first heard my daughter rave about hers, I would have been a lot happier a few years sooner. I really do love my bed.
Dear Flobeds,I have waited until we had the bed for several months to write this - just to be sure. I admit I was a bit nervous about getting a bed that my wife and I had not tried out somewhere. But the bed is wonderful and has eliminated our shoulder and other aches that other beds have caused. It was very easy to setup and was easy to move when out ceiling fan had to be repaired. Thanks for a wonderful product.
My husband and I purchased our FloBed in 2006, we had just finished building our home in Fort Bragg. We are committed to supporting local business, which is what lead us to FloBeds. We found the customer service very helpful in making our choice. They delivered, set up, and explained how to make any adjustments. They offered to come back and assist us if needed. Both their additional core / return policy are very generous. We have been very pleased with our bed. We refer anyone looking for a bed to check out Flobeds, regardless of where they live. No matter the climate, Fort Bragg to Hawaii FloBeds is the way to go.

My wife and I have been sleeping on a king size latex FloBed since 2003. Over the years, I have meant to write to tell you how much we LOVE our FloBed, but I never got around to it. I just happened to receive a marketing email from FloBeds, and now I am taking the time to tell you about our FloBed experience (finally! five years later!).======Prior to having our FloBed we had a traditional, high-end mattress. We are both in good physical shape and we were always of the belief that a quality, firm mattress was the proper bed to have. But when we wanted a new bed for our new home we did lots of research and decided to give FloBeds a try. When we received our FloBed (firm on my side and medium on her side) we were very skeptical because the foam pieces seemed way too soft to provide the firmness we were accustomed to. The FloBed took some adjusting to for the first couple of weeks because whichever position you sleep in, the FloBed gives you the feeling that you are floating on total, gentle support.=====On our old traditional mattress my lower back would develop a dull ache if I "slept in" too long on weekends. But I have never experienced anything but blissful sleep on our FloBed. When we travel and have to stay anywhere for an extended period, one of us usually comments how much we miss our bed. And it is always the greatest feeling to get into our FloBed after being away from home for a while.=====If the topic of mattresses ever comes up with our friends or family we always rave about our latex FloBed.=====On a slightly negative note, we do find that the FloBed mattress cover eventually develops indentations that are difficult to get rid of. All traditional mattresses develop the same problem. But what is nice about the FloBed is that the mattress cover can be completely unzipped and shaken out, which helps to alleviate the indentations. We might even replace the mattress cover within another year or two. But let me be clear -- the latex foam pieces have never developed indentations and have remained 100 percent the same since the day we got our bed. In fact, the bed has held up quite well even through an out-of-state move.=====If you are doing your research about mattresses, you owe it to yourself to try a latex FloBed. It will provide an immeasurable quality of life difference!

We've had our beds for almost 3 years, and there are still a couple of times a week that we're sitting up in bed, drinking our morning coffee, 'taking our massage' and one of us will say. "Boy am I glad we got these beds!". They truly are SO comfortable. The Noyo foundation is terrific, with the adjustability of the head and foot areas, and the massage in both areas.Having the two different beds makes it ideal when one of us wants to stay up late reading; the other isn't inconvenienced by having to sit up to sleep. I also found it invaluable when I developed breathing problems that were related to a heart problem, this past Christmas. After getting out of the hospital, I was able to sleep at more of an angle than usual without my husband having to do the same.I'm so glad we did the research and found your website! We'll be enjoying these beds for many more years!
Best company we have ever done business with. The customer service is incredible. My husband and I almost gave up on ever sleeping well until we got the Flo latex mattress. (And if his back is especially bad, we just put the firmer piece on top for a few weeks. We love having the option to do that.)We are buying another one for our guest room.
I have a Antique Bed, with a very unusal shape. I thought I would have to go out of my home town, to find someone who could build a mattress to fit it! But I talked to a local furniture store, and they suggested that I talk to the people at FloBeds. What a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! I not only got a CUSTOM made bed, but wonderful service, and a wonderful mattress. I want to say Thank You to everyone at FloBeds...from Mr. Turner and his staff and Rocky and his staff. Thank You!

We have received our new bed and after a week of using we can say that we love it! My wife is happy to tears!Thanks a lot!Frank
We started using our 100% Talalay Mattress two days ago. The difference in feel versus our old mattress was noticed by both my wife and me. I am not a great sleeper and have noticed a lott of tossing and turning during the night. The last two nights I still wake up but go right back to sleep and have not tossed or turned at all. It is very easy to find a comfortable position. Clearly I am waking up much more rested.The FloBed experience of purchasing on the WEB was scary at first but the service was excellent, putting the mattress together was excellent and the advice on firmness right on.

We have had our queen latex mattress for 1 and a half years now, and we still wake up most mornings commenting about how glad we are to have purchased it. I used to have alot of pain in my shoulders - I thought it was stress, but I guess it was the coil mattress, because it is gone.We have not had any problem with the mattress being too hot; we bought the latex top (vs. memory foam) and the wool and cotton cover. Since we set it up we have not felt the need to change a thing, and we used the firmness selector on your site. We just wanted to give you an update and to thank you so much for your high quality product.
I ordered a queen all-latex mattress and fir-slat foundation from Flobeds, and recieved it this week. Customer service was outstanding. After having some questions answered on the phone, the packages showed up on time and well-packed. Assembly was not difficult, and I was pleased with the quality of workmanship in the foundation, latex, and cover. The latex has a very unique feel, very different from our past spring mattresses. The feel of the bed is difficult to describe; if you haven't slept on a good latex bed before, you'll have to experience it for yourself. The latex is very supportive, yet soft enough to feel VERY comfortable. "Pressure points" and poor support are clearly NOT problems with this mattress. I was tired of feuding with my wife over whether to have a firm or soft mattress. Flobeds bypassed that whole issue with its ability to custom make each side of the bed to our preferences (this was the biggest factor in our choosing Flobeds). The transition from side to side is very subtle, so you don't abruptly "drop off" from the firm to soft side. It is also good to have the option of switching the firmness at any point. Thank you for making a quality product. It is nice to get a good night's rest! By the way, your website was nicely designed and informative (I liked the sheep!). Sincerely, Keith and Tammy of Virginia
Dear FloBed,I purchased a king sized latex sleep system from you in October 2003, almost 6 months ago. I had deliberated and researched beds for a very long time before taking the plunge. I just want to say how happy I am with both your product and service. You are truly a "no-hassle" company, making customer satisfaction and service a high priority. I love my flo-bed and sleep better than on any other mattress I have had in the past. I was worried about the bed running "hot" but so far it has not been a problem. I have chronic insomnia and seem to get back to sleep faster and easier on this bed. I also have experimented with flipping the cores and it has been fun and interesting to compare all the options. Thank you so much for my bed.Sincerely,Eileen DeutschAnacortes, Washington
It's hard to believe that we've had our latex King bed for 18 months now! It's such a wonderful bed that when we go on vacation we can't wait to get back home to our wonderful comfy bed!! We wish all the hotels and B&Bs knew about your fabulous mattresses.
OK, we could gush forever...but we were wondering if you guys make sofa bed mattresses? We have a Queen sofa bed with a horribly uncomfortable spring mattress that we'd LOVE to replace with latex. Is that possible?
Happy Holidays to you and the FloBeds staff,
Nancy and Peter
I LOVE my bed! During the week that I had the replacement cores you sent, I compared sleeping on the originals to sleeping on the replacements. While at first I thought that the replacements were better, in the end I decided to stick with the originals. I can think of
no other store that would have allowed me the opportunity to make such an extensive comparison (or any comparison at all). Flobeds rocks!
Subject: Our new bed
Thanks for your help - we got the cover to our bed last night & set it up immediately. My husband and I appreciate the excellent customer service we received from Flobeds. We are also enjoying the bed - after sleeping on a futon for the past 10 years, it is a luxury! The packaging system is ingenious, by the way. Who would've thought you could fit a queen size bed into a bunch of very carryable boxes? I was tickled.
Anyhow, thanks again.
I already received your shipment, and slept on my new bed last night.
Thank you!!!! Scott W. S.
Our bed arrived yesterday, we put it together last night (very easy!), and I had the best night's sleep I've had in months! I'm going to love it, no doubt. Sam's side is a little hard though. He wants to use it for a few nights, then decide whether to order a softer core. My side feels better than anything we tried in a showroom. Thank you- Carolyn B.
We dearly love our new bed, but will need to soften up Sam's side. Even at his size, the firm over extra firm makes a pretty hard mattress. He would like to try a medium over firm base. Please let me know what we need to do. The wool filled pillows and comforter are wonderful, too. I haven't slept this well in a very long time.
