Have you ever stoped to think what your ideal day would look like? People are different, so do not force yourself to adhear to the typical daily routine. If you work a 9-5 job you will have to work around those times but you can still figure out what works best for you.

Important to keep in mind:

-Don’t forget to take breaks when you work

-Exercise matters

-Step out side for some fresh air

 

One Size Does Not Fit All

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”

How it Began

Owning a business is not an easy task, and it is not for everyone. Dave, the owner of FloBeds, has been in business for over 35 years. It all began one summer while he was attending Stanford in Palo Alto. In 1971 he entered the specialty sleep business in Palo Alto, California as a means to pay for college. After 4 years of political science and waterbeds, Dave opened a second retail store. Since then his business has changed and adapted multiple times. Watch the video below to hear how FloBeds evolved into the successful natural latex mattress shop it is today:

Fine Wood Working

On the Mendocino coast in California lies a world renowned wood working program. The College of the Redwoods in the city of Fort Bragg offers the Fine Wood Working Program for cabinetry and furniture making. The FloBeds Sleep Shop partnered with two of the program instructors, Todd Sorensen and Greg Smith, to build a frame that is featured in our showroom.

The frame Todd and Greg built demonstrating their fine craftsmanship

This beautiful handcrafted frame is made of African Afzelia hardwood paired with French Ash Panels and finished in catalyzed lacquer. This frame is only on display in our showroom until you are ready to purchase it and bring it home to your FloBed. A queen size frame is priced at $3989 and a king size is $4289. Please call us at 800-356-2337 if you have questions or are interested in purchasing this frame.

Thanksgiving… a time to pause… and say thanks.

Thanksgiving…

It has been a good year at FloBeds, thanks to all of you who put your trust in our team to make your mattress “Just Right”.   We love to hear from our customers about how they love their FloBed.  And it is no small matter.  It turns out that after 15 y ears of making the “Original Personally Crafted Latex Mattress”, over half our sales come from satisfied customers:  either purchasing another FloBed… or recommending FloBeds to a friend or relative.

We want to take this Thanksgiving to offer a discount on our Twice Fluffed line of shredded latex products.  Half off as a way of saying thanks.

Since February of this year we have been offering our organic and original latex mattresses at every day good prices.  No sales.  No wondering if this is a good deal.  Day in… day out… we are offering our best price for a product we are proud to back up with the finest customer service and “personally crafting” in the sleep industry.  We have been taking care of our customers and their adjustable latex mattresses one-on-one for since the 1990’s.  And with your good will and the continued blessings we are so fortunate to receive, we will continue to provide quality service to you and your friends for generations to come.

Happy Thanksgiving to  you and yours,

Dave

The Matrimonial Bed…


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 Rightso was Saint Valentine!

Do You Have a Mattress Like The One In The Store?

Q: We tried out the XYZ quilt top pure latex mattress at ABC Carpet and Home store and liked it very much, except for the price.  I’m wondering if you’re familiar enough with XYZ’s products to recommend whether it’s possible to create a similar feeling product from your own lineup.

A: The XYZ  7-Zone would be most comparable to one of our vZone mattress blended latex version or natural latex version.  Most manufactures are producing some sort of zoned mattress these days to relieve shoulder and hip pressure points or offer additional lumbar support. To match the feel of the XYZ exactly we would need the ILD’s of the latex used.

But rather than trying to match the feel of their 7-Zone, we’d rather build a bed that’s just right for the two of you.  While the XYZ may have felt great in the store, the chances of it being the perfect sleeping surface for both of you is slim. Based on your body weight, height and sleeping style, and that of your sleeping partner, we can recommend what we feel would be best for each of you.

Are You Comfortable?

Make sure you feel cozy and secure, and most importantly, comfortable in your new bed.

Forget the old adage that a mattress has to be hard as a board to be good for you.  The only things a too-hard mattress will put to sleep are your shoulders and hips.
