Dear Dave, I have been waiting to write to you about the bed I bought back in October 2015. I wanted to make sure it wasn’t a fluke. First, Dewey was great walking me through and helping me pick the layers to best suit my sleeping needs. Second, being a single woman I was amazed at the ease of getting the bed delivered to my front door, me getting the sections upstairs, and assembling it in the bedroom. Third, and most incredible–I am so comfortable! I sleep soundly all night! I am in love with my FloBed! It has exceeded my expectations, my back no longer hurts or aches. I am so happy and grateful. Thank you, Margy (owner of Deluxe Latex Mattress)
Organic Cotton where it counts most…next to your body. You spend all day in a harsh world. Retreat to a natural bed covered with organic cotton for a true safe haven. Cotton, the original sustainable fabric, grown and processed without chemicals.
You can be confident that the wool in our luxurious mattress cover is chemical free. NO chemicals or acids are used in the production or processing of organic wool. The sheep are not dipped or treated with any pesticides or herbicides.
Natural Latex is naturally hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial (Bacteria, mold and mildew cannot live in latex) and dust mite resistant (tests prove latex is 3 times more resistant to dust mites than a traditional mattress) making it the perfect mattress material for allergy sufferers or anyone interested in breathing fresh, clean air while they sleep.
When you want to make sure your baby is sleeping on pure nature: Organic Cotton quilted to Organic Wool surrounding 100% Natural Latex. Our Student Mattress is the ultimate in good stewardship. Good for your student…good for our environment! Here’s when Mackenzie grew out of her custom Moses basket FloBed, and had to move into her FloBed Crib mattress!
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. ;-)”

Dreamers Get a Box Full of Sleep
FORT BRAGG, Calif., March 15, 2016
In 1996, Dave Turner had just patented an idea for a hospital bed that 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—a little town in Northern California on the Mendocino Coast, hours away from any urban hub. The second was that he was the stay-at-home dad for four kids—effectively ruling out 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 waited for the calls to come in. And they did. But not for hospital beds.
“The first call was from Germany. A man 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. Even though 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.
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).
Your relationship is unique, your mattress should be too!
Customization is the key to happiness for you and your sweetie! Our latex mattress makes a perfect Valentines day gift. Our multi-layer latex cores accommodate the firmness needs of each individual sleeper by allowing each of you to choose your own firmness combinations.
Our Organic Mattresses feature premium 100% Natural Talalay latex inside a luxurious organic euro knit cotton quilted to organic wool for a chemical free mattress. Take it a step further and really impress your sweetie with an adjustable base. The inspired design of the Prodigy adjustable bed base is a welcome indulgence for all who seek tranquility. Feel the stress melt away when you activate the sensuous built-in massage. Change positions with ease with our wireless remote. Smart as it is beautiful. Happy Valentines Day!
A mattress made for couples
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 Right… so was Saint Valentine!
It always seemed like my parents had a better mattress than me. Well, FloBed parents do not make the same mistake. Here is some great news: we sell a version of your mattress that is perfect for your kids! The Student Mattress features two layers of Talalay Latex to make a 6″ mattress. We use our same Euro Stretch knit organic cotton that we use in all our natural latex mattresses. For students we quilted needled wool on all sides to provide a cool Tite-Top surface that breathes and wicks away moisture. And since wool is naturally fire resistant, we don’t have to add chemicals or artificial barriers to meet the Federal Flame Resistant Standard. We use blems, minor defects or laminated cores to create the highly affordable Student Mattress. Per special request, we can make a student mattress out of first quality cores for $100 more. No more excuses. Nothing but bright-eyed and bushy-tailed smiling students every morning. Ok, maybe we won’t guarantee that, but you know we can guarantee the rest you & your students need!
“My husband and I spent two years researching and trying out organic and all natural mattresses from manufacturers such as OMI, Savvy Rest, and Hastens before deciding on a Flobeds mattress. We took a road trip to Fort Bragg just to try out the talalay latex mattress and we could not be happier with our purchase. My husband is a rotating shift worker and a good night’s sleep is extremely important. When our Costco latex mattress started to sag in the middle after only a few years we decided it was time to upgrade to a mattress with a longer life and better support. When I read the research on the chemicals used in cheap latex mattresses and the off-gassing that occurs with chemically stabilized talalay latex I quickly became convinced of the need for an all-natural and organic alternative. I also spent a lot of time comparing Dunlop latex vs. talalay latex mattresses and was reassured to learn that the process Flobeds uses to create their talalay latex is all natural without any chemicals used to stabilize the latex. There is no question that Flobeds is offering a top-of-the-line quality product at a significant discount than their competitors. Following over an hour of extensive showroom research we decided that a Z-Zone talalay latex mattress was the right fit for us (v-zone over firm over extra firm). We also bought the euro slat foundation and like the flexible support if offers. The bed shipped in a week and was easy to assemble as per the instructions and online video. What should really be noted is the exceptional level of customer service. Our salesperson, Dewey, was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and his father Dave was also a delight to work with. We both love the sleep firmness guarantee and plan on buying a medium or soft layer to accommodate a possibly pregnancy in the next few years. This was a major purchase for us and we really felt more comfortable dealing with a company that will stand behind our mattress. With over 33 years in the business, Flobeds is obviously leading the industry in quality and customer service. ” Natalie, CA

Call the Guinness Book! FloBeds makes worlds largest Dog Bed! Using 100% natural latex, and Organic cotton.
Happy Friday! Here is our fun fact for this Friday: In 2010 FloBeds made a record-setting dog bed of the same all-natural materials we use in our organic natural latex mattresses. That means it was not only the world’s biggest dog bed, but the most comfortable and most eco-friendly!
We love getting Yelp Reviews. Here is what the most recent Yelper said: “Best mattresses EVER! After trying out about 5 different kinds of beds and manufacturers, I will always buy another FloBed. It just doesn’t get any more comfortable or custom than this. Prompt delivery and easy to put together. I downsized from a king FloBed recently to a queen FloBed and love it just as much. The king was still in great shape after 12-15 years, I just needed a smaller bed for my place. Don’t even bother with other companies. FloBeds stands by their workmanship and are the most customizable that I’ve found. They have a terrific replacement policy once you buy from them…as your needs change, you can upgrade parts of your mattress for very little money. Ask about this “Goldie Locks” program. Plus, you will never feel your partner flop around. Back problems are all resolved…even with a serious spinal compression fracture. I healed using this bed and will always maintain good back health on this bed. I have the original FloBed.” -Blue R Austin, Texas
