Trick or Treat

20 years ago we introduced the FloBeds Layered Talalay Latex Mattress.  Back then we spent a lot of time explaining the benefits of latex foam rubber in a mattress.  The superior qualities of Talalay Latex made it pretty easy:  comfortable, natural, healthy and durable. Demonstrating the advantages of sleeping on a buoyant, breathable and baby-safe Talalay mattress was not difficult.  In 1997, convincing someone they should consider ordering a mattress on line was a different story.

We knew we had to make it risk free, so we designed our mattress to be the first personally crafted latex mattress.  Need if firmer or softer, just take out a layer and replace it with the firmness you need.  And if you can’t get it right.. get your money back!  Unheard of in those days.

Over the last 3 years, a 100 new mattress companies have realized that customers like to order from the convenience of their home.  Enter the hucksters and snake-oil sales types, which leaves you asking:
Trick or Treat?

At FloBeds we guarantee no tricks, all treats and sweet dreams.  How can you tell?  Look around the web… our customers love us.  Check out the website.  Email or call us!  We take care of our customers… we always have and always will.Family Business

After you realize we are a family business that has a 20 year online record of excellent service offering the best mattresses in the world, Talalay Latex, you know have found the bed of your dreams.

 

All About Latex Mattresses – And A Good Night’s Sleep

We all need our sleep:  beauty, brains, energy or just for rest and recuperation.

You may have heard of the six sleep admonitions to getting a good night’s sleep:

  1. Keep to a schedule, even on weekends.
  2. Maintain a bedtime pattern.
  3. Get exercise everyday, but not just before bed.
  4. Don’t eat or drink alcohol or caffeine before bedtime.
  5. Keep your bedroom environment conducive to sleep: cool, dark and quiet.
  6. Give your body (spine, lumbar, shoulders and hips) the support it requires with a proper mattress.

If you can take care of items 1 – 5, we can help you get a mattress that, as Goldilocks said, is Just Right.

To design a mattress that gives you spinal alignment as well as relief for your pressure points, just take a momement to tell us about your six sleep demographics:

  1. How old are you?
  2. What is your height?
  3. What is your weight?
  4. Are you male or female?
  5. Do you predominantly sleep on your back, stomach or side?
  6. Do you generally like your mattress softer or firmer.

We make every mattress out of Talalay Latex surrounded by Organic EuroKnit Cotton quilted to Organic Wool.  Each side is designed for each sleeper.  Life

is too short to compromise on proper support in your mattress.  We will build your mattress to your sleep demographics.  And every FloBed is adjustable.  With our Goldilocks Guarantee you can make it softer or firmer for the 20 year life of the mattress.

Because we manufacture every FloBed latex mattress and ship it directly to you, we can afford to put in the very best materials and provide you with unparalleled customer service.    All at a price that is less than you will find in the traditional distribution cycle because you are only paying for the materials and the 10 person company that makes your FloBed.  You are not paying for storefronts, wholesale and retail sales force, extra transport and all the usual cost of doing business.  And a money back guarantee as well as a Goldilocks Guarantee allowing you to order new firmness cores at a steep discount for 20 years.

Visiting NYC

BrynaTurnerAnne and I took are visiting New York City and our daughter, Bryna, to witness her professional playwriting debut.  The Lincoln Center LCT3 Theater is producing  her comedy: Bull in a China Shop (LCT3 produces shows by new playwrights, directors and designers).  http://www.lct.org/shows/bull-china-shop/

Needless to say, we are proud parents and are having a blast.  The play is still in previews and it is amazing to watch the actors, director and playwright fine tune the production up until the March 1st opening.  Last night the cast and show were surprised and thrilled to find  Gloria Steinem and Christine Ann Lahti in the audience.

I’m supposed to be working on the new website from our apartment in the Upper West Side… but this is just too much fun.  (Dewey, I promise to get to it.)  I am excited to showcase the easier to navigate site (especially on mobile) and can’t wait to get customer feedback on our latex mattresses .

We arrived the night before the February snow… we knew it might come, but 10 inches?  Come on!

It’s pretty much gone now, but us Californians still get shocked walking out in to a 30 degree (feels like 20) morning.

Often imitated, never duplicated.

Back in the 90s, we were shipping common carrier. We worked hard to make it possible to ship our latex mattress and quality foundation via UPS by 1998. And we never lost sight of the importance of having the right support for each person. We knew that people of different age, weight, height and sleeping positions deserve a mattress that is built for them.

It is fun to see all the mattress companies popping up on the Internet, making “bed-in-a-box” ubiquitous. But as they say: As they say: “Often imitated, never duplicated.”

The “Boxing” is just one part… Many of these ghostly wanna-be’s promote “one firmness fits all”. Crazy, but at last count there were over 60 of these companies… usually offering a couple of inches of latex or memory foam on top of inexpensive polyurethane foam. Glad you found us in the increasing noisy Internet mattress market. We know we have to make each side right. We believe you deserve a mattress made with more than one or two inches of latex (ours, of course, is 100% latex. Top-to-Bottom, Side-to-Side). And of course you deserve a company famous for its unparalleled customer service. Maybe age does matter.

Finely Crafted Tranquility

Our customers love the Prodigy 2.0 Adjustable Base from Leggett & Platt.

Here is what one customer said about why she decide to get an adjustable base:

“I constantly struggle with pain in my sciatica. When I raise my feet and head at the same time in the adjustable bed, I feel some pressure relief in my back.

Also, my husband has asthma and finds that he sleeps best when he is propped up. Instead of using all of our pillows to prop himself up, now all he has to do is raise the head on his side of the bed.

It is convenient for both of us because we can adjust each side to fit our personal needs. Having the adjustable base for our FloBed has made a huge difference in the quality of our sleep.”

Customer Review Episode 3

In the final episode of our mini-series, Lea Laase describes her experience working with the FloBeds staff. Lea found that her husband’s side of the mattress was perfect but her side needed some adjustments. So she called the FloBeds team and was told over the phone what changes she could make to start sleeping comfortably. The great thing about purchasing a FloBed is we are only one call away. Our team is here to support you in your quest for a better night’s sleep.

Here is one customer’s Yelp review:

Literally, some of the best sales staff I have ever worked with.  The crazy part, is that I have never even met these people in person.  I feel like I’m a part of their family and that they honestly care about their customers and their products meeting the standards of their customers.  I have been using my vzone bed for a little over a month now and my wife and I love it.  I can also feel great about the fact that, if there ever comes a time when this bed doesn’t meet our specific needs, I can modify it to whatever specs I want (i.e. firmness).  If my wife needs a change because she is aching from pregnancy, there are ways you can help with that with this bed.  It’s truly an amazing company and I’m glad I did the research and took a hard look at the mattress industry to come to the conclusion to go with FloBeds.  I couldn’t be happier.

Thanks!
