How did FloBeds begin to make natural latex mattresses in Northern California?
It starts with sourcing the best materials possible. Our Latex Mattress cover is made with Organic euro-knit Cotton quilted to Organic Wool. Not only does the cover and wool provide you with soft yielding comfort that does not interfere with the natural latex inside, it is naturally fire resistant. That means we can provide pure comfort without chemicals. Inside the FloBed you will only find Talalay latex. A Talalay Latex Mattress costs more to make than a standard dunlop processed latex mattress, but the Talalay process results in a more supple and conforming latex foam that outlast regular latex.
And for best foundation in a supporting role… the FloBed slatted foundations (Euro, Fir and Pine). Build like a house, our foundations rely on positive wood on wood support (solid FSC certified ponderosa pine). We use twice as much wood in our foundations… but as they say: “It starts with a good foundation.”
We try and keep it simple, source out only the best materials.
The exclusive FloBeds Latex Dual Adjustable Firmness provides each sleeper with their own firmness that can be adjusted to make your side of the mattress JUST RIGHT.
Our exclusive Dual Adjustable Firmness provides each sleeper with their own firmness that can be adjusted to make your side of the mattress JUST RIGHT. And if you don’t get it Just Right, we offer you a 100 Nite Money Back Guarantee. Couples lose an average of 25 minutes of sleep because of their partner. As we age, we get more sensitive to a restless or tossing and turning partner. FloBeds has been solving this issue for couples for 20 years. Back in 1997 FloBeds developed a bed that each person could adjust the mattress firmness on their side. And FloBeds fixed it with out the problematic issue of leaking air cells. Instead they took the best mattress material in the world, Talalay, and created a layered and adjustble firmness mattress. In 2007 FloBeds took the design to a whole new comfort level with the “Goldilocks Gurantee”. FloBeds General Manager Dewey Turner said it succinctly: “Everyone should have the right to be a Goldilocks, making sure their bed is “Just Right”. FloBeds customers agree, the FloBed is the “Best Bed for Couples”.
Our Goldilocks Guarantee means if your side of your new latex mattress is too soft or too firm, you can order a softer or firmer latex core. And under the Goldilocks Guarantee, you can order up to two additonal firmness cores for up to 5 years for only $75. And then, for the next 15 years, as life happens, you can order additional cores to adjust your FloBed to your life at a prorated price.
For an demonstration of how you can adjust your firmness, check out our “How it Works” page.
Under our 2 inch comfort pad of pure convoluted latex each sleeper has two or three layers of talalay latex cores in the firmness combination best suited for your body. By bracketing the firmness you think is right for you (for instance we might make your side firm/extra-firm and your partner’s medium/firm) we are able to guarantee you will get the comfort and support your body deserves.
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 natural latex matttress has made a huge difference in the quality of our 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.
Last year we had the pleasure of working with the Albion Schoolhouse. This beautiful vacation rental on the coast of Northern California has multiple FloBeds.
“Enjoy fresh air, the comforts of a fine hotel; a stage with live mics; a bounty of totally excellent board games; yoga mats; secret gardens; a big tv screen and a fully stocked kick-ass chef’s kitchen. Constructed in 1924, this grammar school served the town’s schoolchildren and community until 1995 when it was purchased by William Bottrell who spent 20 years lovingly restoring and renovating it.”
If you are looking for a getaway where you can get some peace, quiet and good sleep, look no further! It is always hard to go on vacation and leave the comfort of your FloBed Latex Mattress. A very important part of vacation is having the chance to catch up on your sleep. However, we all know what a gamble it can be when you go to a hotel and have to hope that the mattress is comfortable. Head on over The Albion Schoolhouse and you can rest assured that you will be able to catch some Z’s on a FloBed.
Finding a new mattress can be an arduous task. We all know the drill- you enter a mattress store, work with a pushy salesman and leave with a mattress you don’t want.
Here at FloBeds we like to do things a little differently. We educate customers about our latex mattresses, find the one that fits them best, guarantee a 100-night test rest and work with them to make any changes they may need.
Over the next few weeks, we will release videos about one customer’s experience with FloBeds. Many customers call into our shop or stop by and have similar stories to the one Lea Laase’s is sharing in the video below:
A custom mattress: Many people sleep on mattresses that are too firm or too soft. FloBeds can be customized, so your mattress can fit your body and sleeping habits just right. Our latex mattresses are extremely supportive and the layers in the mattresses can be switched around to achieve different firmnesses.
The right height frame: Make sure it isn’t too difficult to get in and out of bed because of your bed frame height. Even the rules of Funghi suggest you pay attention to the height of your frame. FloBeds offers various height legs so you can find the best one that fit your needs.
The right sleep temperature: Research shows that your bedroom should be between 60-67 degrees Fahrenheit. Invest in a smart thermostat to make sure your room is the right temperature.
The right humidity: “Extreme weather conditions impact our mood, our health, and can even our sleep. When the air has a high humidity concentration, we feel hot and sweaty – which means uncomfortable sleep. When the air is too dry, on the other end, our skin, eye and nasal passages dry out which is also uncomfortable.”-Huff Post According to the National Sleep Foundation your room should always be at 50% humidity.
