One Size Does Not Fit All

Share

We are all different heights, weights, and have different sleeping preferences, so why do most mattress manufactures use the one size fits all mentality? Here at FloBeds we know that your partner might like to sleep on something similar to rock, while you prefer a cloud. That is why FloBeds can be customized. Ever wonder what the inside of a FloBed looks like? Go ahead and take a look under the hood:

What you are going to find is-

A mattress you can adjust: Top-to-Bottom, Side-to-Side & Head-to-Toe
  •Top-to-Bottom: Several adjustable layers of Latex customized for YOUR body
  •Side-to-Side: Each side personalized to accommodate both sleeper’s firmness needs
  •Head-to-Toe: Pain in your shoulders or hips? Need extra lumbar support? Are you a side or back sleeper? The vZone allows you to micro-tune customized “zones”

Don’t Miss Out On The Fun This Earth Day

Happy Earth Day! To celebrate Earth Day today NASA is asking that we share pictures of our favorite places using the hashtag #NoPlaceLikeHome. When you look up this hashtag you will also see photos that NASA will be posting as well. After Earth Day NASA will use some of the best pictures to compile a video.

Operations Manager Dewey Says his #NoPlaceLikeHome is anywhere with his family-

Certified Pure

Have you ever taken a second to stop and think about what you are sleeping on? If you have a FloBed you have nothing to worry about, however, not all mattresses are made with the same materials that we use. You spend a third of your life in bed… consider what you’re sleeping on. We were the first to use wool to pass the federal fire standards for mattresses, making our covers chemical free. Organic Cotton is obvious… but we even wash it before quilting it to our organic wool.

We even use solid Ponderosa Pine for our slat foundations. The Pine slat foundations are FCS certified of course.

Okeo-Tex

FloBeds is Okeo-Tex certified. Okeo-Tex is the world leader in testing for human safety in textiles.

People spend about a third of their lives in bed. We want to make sure that third of your life is not only comfortable but chemical free.

He said, “We had such a great time there 2 weekends ago. We stayed in the best room, the cove cottage. It felt as if we were all alone in paradise, but with a wonderful breakfast waiting for us every morning, cookies every afternoon, hot tub in the evening, and a ready made fire at night. We can’t wait to go back.”

Delivering the Perfect Natural Mattress

Share

Derived from the rubber tree, natural latex has qualities that simply make it the PERFECT NATURAL MATTRESS MATERIAL.

Organic Cotton where it counts most…next to your body. You spend all day in a harsh world. Retreat to a natural bed covered with organic cotton for a true safe haven.

Nature’s best bedding fiber, Plein-Air Wool® is the term used for wool that comes from… well, happy sheep that live outside all year round and aren’t exposed to pesticides or herbicides. Not surprisingly, wool from sheep raised in this humane manner is superior in resilience, bounce & loft.


Dunlop vs Talalay Latex and…

Interested in latex mattress.

1. I believe firm Dunlop latex is better for the support. Do you have such an option?

*We only offer Talalay.  We feel it is superior in consistency and longevity.  Latex firmness is measured in ILD, which is how many pounds it takes to compress a 4” piece of latex to 3”.  A 36 ILD  Talalay piece of latex takes the same 36 pounds to compress as a Dunlop piece.  Dunlop is stiffer, and can be used as a bottom layer without compromising the mattress.  This will allow for a lower cost mattress.  However, we feel that it is important to be able to move layers up and down in your mattress to achieve the best support for your body.  If you have a Dunlop layer on the bottom and want to firm up your mattress, moving the Dunlop to the top will bring a stiffer, less conforming layer closer to your body and compromise the comfort.

2. Convoluted latex is soft. I prefer a bit firm as a top. Does convoluted latex also has firm, medium and soft type?

*We offer our 2” layer of convolute on all our mattresses.  It is for pressure relief and blood circulation.  If, after trying our mattress with convolute, a FloBeds customer wants a solid 2” layer instead, we will exchange (no charge) the convolute for any firmness desired from 22 ILD to 36 ILD.

3. After purchasing, can I change one of the layers, e.g. Change the firm for medium… What is the cost?

*We offer our Goldilocks Guarantee which allows you to purchase new cores (half width in King, Queen or Full) at a deep discounted price of $75 for the first 5 years.  Here is a link to the complete details of the Goldilocks Guarantee:  https://www.flobeds.com/guarantee/goldilocks-guarantee.htm

4. Returning cost

*Our 100 day test rest allows you to return your FloBed for a full refund of the purchase price.  You only pay the shipping.  For example:  A queen mattress and foundation would cost  $149 to ship to the Continental US.  We offer our UPS account to return at the same price, so your risk would be $149 twice, or $298.  A mattress only is $99 each way.

Thank you for considering FloBeds,
