FloBeds Family | FloBeds

FloBeds, how this family business found themselves selling beds all across the country!

In 1996, Dave Turner had just patented an idea for a hospital bed that he was sure 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, California-a little town in Northern California on the Mendocino Coast, hours away from any urban hub of industry. The second was that he was the stay-at-home dad for four kids-effectively ruling out any 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 he waited for the calls to come in. And, sure enough, they did. But not for his hospital beds.
“The first call was from a man in Germany. He 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. Despite the fact that 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.

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

How to Adjust Your FloBeds Latex Pillow | FloBeds

Everyone Is built differently. Your Pillow should should be too!

Our Natural Latex Pillows can be Adjusted!

Review FloBedson Google+
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.

Tips for Different Types of Sleepers

Tips for Different Types of Sleepers

Your sleep quality has a massive impact on your overall health and productivity. Much like you can suffer an injury throughout your day, you can also injure yourself while sleeping. Therefore, it is essential to have a healthy sleep routine that sets you up for a successful life.

Did you know there are risks associated with the three different types of sleepers: side sleepers, stomach sleepers and back sleepers? Each poses a unique type of threat, which is why it is vital to implement healthy sleeping positions and practices. Keep reading to learn several healthy tips for different types of sleepers you can start using tonight.

Tips for Side Sleepers

Below are some of the most effective, science-approved tips for sleeping on your side. They are also pretty straightforward and easy to apply, so you can easily try them out for your next slumber.

Place a Pillow In Between Your Knees

Positioning a pillow between the knees is an effective method to relieve pressure points. Pain in the back and legs is a common problem for a side sleeper because of the minimal support. Your legs and hips support your opposite side while you sleep, which can be damaging to your joints. A leg pillow will enable optimal spinal alignment, which minimizes pressure on your back and entire body.

Try To Sleep On Your Left Side

One common misconception is that it does not matter which side you sleep on. However, it is actually more beneficial to lay on your left side because of the arrangement of your organs. Your stomach sits on the left because it allows for easier digestion and flow of food. When you sleep on your left side, it also facilitates healthy blood flow, reduces the chance of heartburn and limits symptoms of acid reflux.

Choose a Mattress with the Right Firmness

Choosing a mattress for side and stomach sleepers with optimal firmness is critical in supporting your waist and neck. With an ideal mattress, you’ll notice relief in common pressure points, and your ligaments and muscles will start to heal while you sleep. Plus a latex mattress for side sleepers is much more breathable and responsive than memory foam. The best side-sleeping mattress allows for adjusting pressure in the hips, shoulders and lumbar. Our vZone mattress can be easily adjusted from head to toe at six different areas of the body, making it the perfect mattress for side sleepers.

Tips for Stomach Sleepers

Sleeping on your stomach is not the healthiest option out of the three sleeping styles. However, you might not be able to sleep any other way since you have done it your whole life. Here are some helpful tips for stomach sleepers to limit any issues or complications.

Sleep with a Thin Pillow

Try sleeping with a thinner pillow or with no pillow at all. Your head and neck will rest at less of an angle with a thin pillow. This sleeping style will reduce the chance of pain in these critical areas.

Place a Pillow Underneath Your Hip

A latex pillow for stomach sleepers beneath the pelvis will provide many alignment benefits. This pillow position will assist your back in keeping a neutral posture. Putting a pillow under your hip will also help reduce the pressure on your spine throughout the night.

Perform Morning Stretches Every Day

Stretching is useful before and after physical activity, but it can also benefit sleeping performance for a stomach sleeper. Consistent stretching helps your body retain its alignment. A quality routine will also give your supporting muscles the strength to produce a healthy night’s sleep. As you start stretching, be sure to get some movement in first.

Tips for Sleeping On Your Back

Sleeping on your back provides many benefits when it comes to alignment and digestion. There are also a variety of strategies and solutions you can implement to elevate your sleeping experience. Here are some of the best tips for sleeping on your back.

Prop Up Your Head

Sleeping on your back may worsen sleep apnea symptoms. Because of how your tongue rests in your mouth, it can block your airway when you sleep on your back. To solve this, you can prop up your head so that it rests slightly higher than the rest of your body. Doing so will relieve any symptoms and help with the angle.

Place a Rolled Towel or Pillow Underneath Your Knees

Some back sleepers complain of severe back and hip pain. If you are a back sleeper, there might be extra pressure on these areas. However, you can address that pain by putting a rolled-up towel or pillow underneath your knees. This strategy will make your spine more rounded and take off some pressure. Stretching before bed also makes your hip flexors loosen and relieves further spine pressure.

Build a Barrier of Pillows on Both Sides of Your Body

Creating a pillow barrier on either side of your body will help keep your body straight throughout the night. It will also reduce the chances of your body rolling over. You will also feel a sense of protection and security, which will improve overall sleep in this position

Restored Body Upon Awakening – Hannah Teter | FloBeds

Rest, relax, rejuvenate.

These are all things that not only Olympic athletes want in a bed, but what we all deserve.

FloBeds is proud to craft latex beds for some very talented athletes. Everyone deserves a good night’s sleep, and that can be especially hard for athletes. That is what we are here for! Here is what snowboarder Hannah Teter thinks about FloBeds:
“I could not be more happy about my FloBed… it provides everything that I‘ve ever been looking for, from comfort to recovery. It is so important to sleep on a healthy Organic bed that can give you more than just a good night’s sleep, but also a restored body upon awakening.

What Are You Sleeping On?

You’re missing out if it’s not a FloBed

All Natural Mattress

Our cover provides a soft and plush surface for you to rest your body on after a long day. The Cotton Euro Knit quilted to wool on all six sides makes a FloBed different than the other latex mattresses out there. Our wool is Pure organic Plein-Air Wool® fiber used to promote maximum airflow around your body, and provide natural moisture- wicking. . We don’t use any poly-foam in our covers because it breaks down in 4 or 5 years, it sucks in dust and moisture, and it doesn’t breath. We don’t use a pillow-top in our beds.  The cover should not interfere with the pressure relief and core support of the components beneath.

Since our covers are made with wool it is extremely important to remember that our covers are not machine washable. We do suggest hanging covers out in the sun 1-2 times per year. We also suggest the very popular St. Dormeir Wool Mattress Protector. This mattress protector is completely machine washable. Breathability keeps you cool in the summer, and cozy in the winter, and it lasts years longer than polyester.

Inside this luxurious cover you’ll find the key to the FloBeds natural talalay latex mattress 100% natural latex made from the milk of the rubber tree.
