16 Years Later and Still a 5 Star Review

GoldilocksGuarantee

We tell our customers that latex lasts much longer than the other foams out there. That is why we have such a great 20-year guarantee, the Goldilocks Guarantee. FloBeds want to make sure your bed is always “Just Right”, whether it is 18 months after your purchase or 16 years! We make mattresses that are made to last. Nancy Barry-Jansson has had her mattress for 16 years and here is what she has to say:

Nancy Barry-Jansson
5 Star Review

“Read the 2nd of my 2 reviews on the FloBed site, under “Customer Service Reviews” that I wrote after we’d had the bed 18 months. It’s now been 16 YEARS and the bed is seriously *still* as comfortable as when we got it! This is a great investment in your sleep and physical well-being!

The only downside, as I said before, “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.” <—Hasn’t changed in 16yrs! Thank you, FloBeds. I look forward to buying more for the guest rooms and referring people your way. ;-)”

Celebrating 20 Years of Dreams in a Box

FloBeds (1)

In 1996, Dave Turner had just patented an idea for a hospital bed that he was sure was going to change the way people slept, rested, and healed forever. But he had two problems: the first was that he had just relocated to Fort Bragg, California-a little town in Northern California on the Mendocino Coast, hours away from any urban hub of industry. The second was that he was the stay-at-home dad for four kids-effectively ruling out any long business trips to trade shows. Hungry to gain traction, Dave decided to take a chance on another revolutionary idea: the World Wide Web. He taught himself how to build a website, and then he waited for the calls to come in. And, sure enough, they did. But not for his hospital beds.
“The first call was from a man in Germany. He wanted a waterbed and wondered if I could ship it to him, and I thought, ‘why not?'” So while every other business of the 90’s was trying to think outside the box, Dave began to figure out how he could adapt his business to fit inside the box.
Twenty years later, Dave’s ingenious FloBed Latex Mattress is so unique that UPS published a case study: “Fitting a Bed in a Box.” And the World Wide Web has done the business well: over $2 million yearly in sales come from FloBeds.com. Despite the fact that they are shipped all over the world, every single FloBed remains handcrafted in Fort Bragg, California, where Dave’s “dream team” works to make sure every customer’s mattress is “Just Right.” Specializing in customization, FloBeds come with personalized levels of firmness for each side of the bed. And the “Goldilocks Guarantee” means that your bed will always be just right-if you need to adjust your firmness, just give the dream team a call.

OrganicNaturalTalalaySelect

FloBeds uses 100% natural Talalay latex, the best material for conforming to and supporting the human body. Their best-selling mattress is completely natural, using no harmful chemicals-so you can rest easy.

Morning on the Fort Bragg Coast
The best bed for dreamers. For thinking outside and inside the box. Dreamt up, drawn up, crafted, shipped and adjusted from Fort Bragg, California-where the redwoods meet the Pacific Ocean (oops, a little Fort Bragg Mayor Dave slipped in).

Tips for Back, Side and Stomach Sleepers

VisitingNew York (1)

Did you know that sleeping posture is just as important as sitting posture? It is very vital that you protect your back while you sleep. You put the least amount of pressure on it by sleeping on your back or side. Side sleepers should sleep with a pillow between their knees to keep proper spine alignment. Stomach sleepers specifically should use a smaller pillow to keep your head aligned while sleeping. When purchasing and customizing your FloBeds mattress make sure you keep in mind that stomach sleepers need a firmer mattress than back or side sleepers. If you have more questions please give us a call at 1-800-356-2337 and one of our firmness experts can give you more information on which mattress configuration fits your sleeping position.

Stop Tossing and Turning and Start Sleeping

At FloBeds we pride ourselves in selling latex mattresses specifically. We believe latex is the solution to all of your uncomfortable and restless nights. According to the ErgoCheck system (pictured below) a latex  mattress distributes pressure more evenly than even the most expensive innerspring mattress. The ErgoCheck system is a measuring pad with 648 individual pressure sensors distributed across the testing surface. It shows the physical pressure between the body and mattress to determine pressure points.

Tests have demonstrated that areas with pressure measuring above 32 millimeters of mercury (shown in dark blue) will inhibit blood circulation and cause muscle ache and tossing and turning.

So even science shows you that a Latex mattress is your solution to a better nights sleep.

BED BANDITS (2)


“We’ve had the FloBed about 6 months now and love it! We were both experiencing morning back pain with our previous pillow top mattress. After researching the qualities of latex mattresses we decided to try it. We were very impressed with the ability to create your own firmness levels to match your body type and preferences. Very easy to put together and the best news – no more back pain!”

Calling Paul

summer deals!

Have you noticed someone new answering the phone at FloBeds? That is the one and only Paul. He started a few months ago and has become an important part of our team. We interviewed Paul so you can get to know him better:

Q: What do you like about working at FloBeds?

A: I love the atmosphere! When I first started working here I repeatedly asked myself, “What are you doing here pal? You are not a salesman. You hate talking people into anything!” But I soon realized the awesome family aka management, puts no pressure into selling beds. The product is so good it sells itself! All I do is provide service and information, I love it. The office is completely open with all the desks facing each other, whenever I have a question or when someone needs anything we just vocally launch it across the room and answers come flying back. On a typical day we get to hang out and share thoughts about basketball and other tough guy things, while working of course ^_^, oh and there is always nice upbeat music playing.

Q: What is your ideal FloBed model and firmness setup?

A: I am currently sleeping on an Eastern King Deluxe placed on the Euro Slat Foundation, with the cores setup as medium over firm on top of extra firm. I literally dream about this bed while sleeping on it. I am juggling three jobs and the feeling I get when I come home and melt into this mattress is indescribable. <—- did not mean to sound like an ad.. its just awesome!

Q: Do you prefer Natural or Blended Latex?

A: I tried but I really can’t tell the difference. My bed at home is blended latex and I have taken quite a few quality control office naps on our 100% natural version. I have come to the conclusion that more office naps will be required for final judgement.

Q: What do you like about speaking with FloBeds’ customers?

A: I like taking care of people, and I love that everyone who calls in is calling for the same exact reason; they are looking for that good melt into your mattress sleep, and I have been given the tools to help them make it happen. BRING IT ON FRIENDS!!!
