Q: Hi,  We tried out the Royal Pedic 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 Royal Pedic’s products to recommend whether it’s possible to create a similar feeling product from your own lineup.

Here is a link to it (although the image is wrong as it’s not actually a pillowtop as shown).  The product tearsheet link along the bottom of the page shows the correct image along with some specs, but unfortunately not the ILD ratings

I’m not especially concerned about whether the materials qualify as all-organic. However I would be interested to know whether your all-natural latex actually feels any different than your blended talalay latex.

I’m also not concerned about whether the thickness is exactly the same, I’m more interested in knowing if we could put together a mattress that feels about the same as the Royal Pedic regardless of the physical differences.

Could you also point me to some pictures of the cotton/wool cover you use on your mattresses, and describe how much padding is in it?
Thanks,
Dan

A: Dan,  The Royal Pedic 7 zone would be most comparable to our vZone mattress.(blended latex version https://www.flobeds.com/products/6299EK ) (Natural Latex version https://www.flobeds.com/products/6499EK ) Most manufactures are producing some sort of zoned mattress these days to relieve pressure points for a sleepers shoulders and hips as well as offer additional lumbar support. In order to match the feel of the Royal Pedic exactly we would need the ild’s of the latex used, however we at FloBeds feel that a mattress should be custom built for each sleeper, while the Royal Pedic may have felt great in the store the chances of it being the perfect sleeping surface for each of you is slim. Based on your body weight,  height, sleeping style, we can recommend what we feel would be best for each of you, we then give you 100 nights to make sure the bed is for you.  Our Goldilocks Guranantee lets you fine tune your mattress for 20 years https://www.flobeds.com/guarantee/goldilocks-guarantee.htm.

As to our 100% natural Talalay vs The Blended Talalay (30% natural 70% synthetic) I tell folks; as far as look, touch, feel, performance, and warranty goes the two are the same. The Natural will run a little bit thicker and weigh more, but it really comes down to a personal preference.

Here is a link to our organic cotton and wool cover https://www.flobeds.com/information/natural-organic/covers.htm , we use 1inch of organic wool in the quilted top, as well as needle punched wool in the side walls and bottom of the cover for our flame barrier. Wool is naturally flame resistant, and a great addition to the organic cotton ticking in our mattress covers.

If you have any further questions about our mattresses, please feel free to give us a call, or email back.

Thanks,

Historical Fact: Who is the Sheep Mattress Company?

Share
Historical Point on Sheep Liberation: FloBeds started using the Jumping Sheep in 1997, when Anne decided to draw something to better represent us. Serta must have liked Anne’s Jumping Sheep. In 2001 they started sticking Counting Sheep in showroom windows across the country. Not only was it the humane thing to do, freeing all the Counting Sheep helps set the “Who is the Sheep Mattress Co” question straight.

Hello FloBed Bloggers, I have finally persuaded my father to get up to speed with the new “hip” and “cool” technology  (where the vast majority of his business is already done online). A big part of what I’ll be doing is helping get the viral marketing campaign on board. I’m lucky my father is allowing me to be my creative self. This video, however, was my fathers creation (although i want to take a little credit for moving the mountain;) which they made while i was still in D.C. with my NAIA/American Red Cross internship.

This Video is the first of our YouTube videos, involving everyone that was at work that day. It also involves another local business, Furniture Mart. And as you will see, we liberated their Serta Sheep from their show room window. Enjoy!
