Set-up Was Easy Peasy
We recently received an email from our customer Pat saying, “…seeing how quickly our second Flobed was assembled.” In these photos, you see Pat setting up our Pine Slat Foundation and Deluxe Latex Mattress. Watch how easy it was for Pat:
Great job Pat! Thanks for continuing to depend on FloBeds for a better night’s sleep.
As most customers know our FloBeds covers are not machine washable. That is why we carry the very popular St. Dormeir Wool Mattress Protector. Even people who do not own our beds call our store in search of the popular St. Dormeir Protector. This amazing new Wool has been specially milled by a new European process to make it completely machine washable (and dryable) without shrinking. Typical wool pads need to be dry cleaned, or at best hand washed. St.Dormeir protectors have all the convenience of polyester fills, but you can now sleep on natural wool with all its famous characteristics. Breathability keeps you cool in the summer, and cozy in the winter, and it lasts years longer than polyester. Wool is even naturally flame retardant (Polyester burns easily because it is made from hydrocarbons – just like other plastics, gasoline, etc.). St.Dormeir Protectors are made with 100% Cotton Terry covers, filled with New Zealand Wool. This Cotton Terry is also used as the skirt that goes all around the sides of the protector, to fit completely over your mattress. It has full elastic all around the bottom edge for the best fit. They are extremely moisture-absorbent, and they are also very soft to sleep on.
Here is a little thank you note we got from one of our customers Dr. Lago- “As an orthopedic surgeon, I have seen many patients who have been adversely affected by an uncomfortable bed. The obliteration of pressure points has been a major result. Motion on either side of the bed goes un-noticed with FloBed. The old days when I awoke with a low backache are gone.” FloBeds latex mattresses are adjustable for the 20 year life of the mattress.
Admiral McRaven, a Navy Seal, gave a new meaning to making your bed every morning. He states that, “If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another. And by the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed.” Watch the video below to hear more on his philosophy: if you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.
And then there is Making Your FloBed… creating your personalized natural latex mattress. But that’s a little off the Admiral’s message.

Goldilocks Was Right
When the time comes to make a purchase that you will be using every day, you might start to feel a little overwhelmed. Often times mattress shopping includes heading to a crowded mattress shop, wondering if you are getting the best deal, fending off the aggressive salesmen, and spending a few minutes testing out a mattress that you hope you will like spending 8 hrs on every night. That does not have to be your shopping experience. At FloBeds we like to make sure you don’t have to deal with crowds or haggling. You can have a great mattress shopping experience from the comfort of your own home. Let us help you design a latex mattress to fit both your body and your partner’s.
Even Newsweek thinks you should try a FloBed. As mentioned in the Newsweek article, “…find a mattress you can adjust to the point of perfection. Flobeds (flobeds.com or 1-800-FLOBEDS) sells stackable latex panels that range from soft to superfirm. Stack two panels of different firmnesses for a truly customized sleep. And because each side of the mattress has separate panels, your partner can sleep on marble while you float on marshmallows.” T.E. Newsweek

Destination: Andiron Seaside Inn and Cabins
This Friday we are featuring the Andiron Seaside Inn and Cabins. The Andiron is nestled in the woods off of Highway 1 in Little River, California. It is only minutes away from the coastal town of Mendocino where you can find fun shops, fine dining, and amazing coastal views.
The Andiron is exciting and different because as the website states, “…rooms are each entirely unique and reflect our love of everything vintage, salvaged, rehabbed, and recycled.” The Inn offers fun activities including board games, croquet, badminton, and a hot tub.
One Andiron customer Nicole Said, “Beautiful, comfortable, fun place to vacation. Amazing host and hostess, Scott and Madeline treat you like family. If you LOVE vintage, wilderness & kindness you have to go!! Thank you for a wonderful stay. Wish we lived closer so we could visit more often.”
The Alegria Inn, a popular ocean front inn with cottages, is located in the beautiful town of Mendocino, California. The Alegria Inn has not 1, not 2, but 3 FloBeds for guests to enjoy! Our latex mattresses can be found in the Pacific Suite, Cove Cottage, and the Tree House rooms.
Whether you are exploring the garden or unwinding in the hot tube with an ocean view, you are sure to experience a relaxing vacation. On the Alegria Inn Facebook customer Edu Montenegro Susperreguy gave the inn 5 stars. He said, “We had such a great time there 2 weekends ago. We stayed in the best room, the cove cottage. It felt as if we were all alone in paradise, but with a wonderful breakfast waiting for us every morning, cookies every afternoon, hot tub in the evening, and a ready made fire at night. We can’t wait to go back.”
So what are you waiting for? Come up to the Mendocino coast and stay at the Alegria Inn for a relaxing vacation on a FloBed.
