FloBeds customers sleeping on latex, “just enjoy, staying in bed”
Dave, I remember when the bed arrived. Those boxes are really sturdy and the bed so easily fits inside due to its modular design. I have to tell you, I hung on to those boxes for a while just in case I was going to move but after 10 years I had to let them go to recycling. My wife Virginia and I love our bed. We have had it for over ten years and it continues to give us a great night?s sleep, the construction is solid, the support is great and we just enjoy staying in bed. The only maintenance activity we perform is taking the mattress apart each year and putting it back together. I?m not really sure its recommended but it just seems right! Thanks for constructing such a great bed. Best, John W., Carpinteria, CA – 3/16/2016 (owner of a zoned latex mattress)

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).

Everyone Is built differently. Your Pillow should should be too!
Our Natural Latex Pillows can be Adjusted!
There are some things to keep in mind when you are adjusting your FloBeds Twice Fluffed Shredded Latex Pillow, including the depth of the curve in your neck, your sleeping position, and your mattress firmness. For back sleepers make sure the pillow fills in the gap between your neck and pillow. You do not want to be propped up so high that you can see your feet. Side sleepers should have a pillow that fills in the void between your ear and the bed. Your pillow should be thicker than a back sleeper’s pillow. Stomach sleepers need a thinner pillow to try to keep your body aligned. You do not want your pillow so full that your head is higher than the rest of your body. Luckily the FloBeds Latex Pillow can adjust to meet anyone’s needs! Shop Twice Fluffed Shredded Latex Pillow.
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.

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!
Too good to be true? Don’t take it from us, listen to our customers!
“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!” To read more reviews please take a look at our reviews page.
