Fun Fact Friday

If you have called FloBeds you have probably spoken to Dewey Turner. Dewey started full time at FloBeds in 2003! His fondest memory is when he went to Utah in 2009 to get a new Edge Sweets Latex-Foam Horizontal Saw. That saw made it possible for FloBeds to control the quality and precision of the latex layers in every latex mattress.

Every Talalay latex core is slit into two 3 inch cores with the horizontal saw.  The new (center) surfaces are inspected to make sure there are no voids.  It then moves on to the vertical saw to be trimmed to size.

Our Customers Are Great

Thank you to all of our amazing customers who have written reviews for FloBeds. Your reviews help other people understand just how important a great mattress is for a better night’s sleep.

4-Star–I purchased two organic FloBeds last October. Every night I get into bed and say “I love my bed”. I am so thankful for the team of experts at FloBed. They customized our beds perfectly. I also purchased the cotton sheets, wool mattress covers and the contoured neck pillow. All are wonderful. The neck pillow is perfect. It is a wonderful feeling knowing that you are doing everything possible to protect your health from chemicals and EMF’s while you are sleeping. Organic latex and no metal in the mattresses or the bed frame keep me confident and peaceful. My teenage son would probably sleep all day in his FloBed if he could. Thank you so very much. A great nights sleep is priceless. Vicki Leesburg, FL

Happy 4th of July!

  Thank you for the fish!

No matter how you are celebrating the 4th of July, we hope you have a great day!

We will be enjoying the World’s Largest Salmon BBQ up here in Fort Bragg again (even as the smoke get’s in our eyes… that’s our Dave with Judge Luther at the grill.  The gang cooked over 2,500 dinners!) . “Join the fun at this annual event, sponsored by the Salmon Restoration Association to raise money to take positive action to restore salmon to our rivers and streams. Great food, live music and a love of the outdoors are all part of the atmosphere at the BBQ. Have a great weekend!

After the fireworks, as you lay your head on the pillow… imagine: drifting into a fabulous sleep on a FloBed natural latex mattress

You Deserve Options

One Firmness Does Not Fit All

We tell customers every day- one size does not fit all. Make sure you get a mattress that fits your body. Here is what one customer had to say about his ability to have options:
“I ordered a queen all latex mattress and fir-slat foundation from Flobeds, and received it this week. Customer service was outstanding. After having some questions answered on the phone, the packages showed up on time and well-packed. Assembly was not difficult, and I was pleased with the quality of workmanship in the foundation, latex, and cover. The latex has a very unique feel, very different from our past spring mattresses. The feel of the bed is difficult to describe; if you haven’t slept on a good latex bed before, you’ll have to experience it for yourself. The latex is very supportive, yet soft enough to feel VERY comfortable. “Pressure points” and poor support are clearly NOT problems with this mattress. I was tired of feuding with my wife over whether to have a firm or soft mattress. Flobeds bypassed that whole issue with its ability to custom make each side of the bed to our preferences (this was the biggest factor in our choosing Flobeds). The transition from side to side is very subtle, so you don’t abruptly “drop off” from the firm to soft side. It is also good to have the option of switching the firmness at any point. Thank you for making a quality product. It is nice to get a good night’s rest! By the way, your website was nicely designed and informative (I liked the sheep!).”

3 Steps to Detoxify Your Sleeping Space

healthy mattress & bedroom

All Natural Chemical-Free Mattress

Many of our customers come to us looking for an all natural/ chemical free mattress option. We spend one-third of our lives asleep in our bedrooms, so here are some tips to create a healthy, non-toxic space:

1. Sleep on an all natural latex mattress from FloBeds. 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.

2. Use solid wood furniture- like our Pine Slat foundation. Engineered to be put together with 8 wing-nuts, this strong foundation is constructed of solid wood sides and 3-1/2″ pine slats to provide a firm surface with air circulation for your latex mattress.

3. Use organic cotton sheets. Most cotton is grown using harmful pesticides and fertilizers, so make sure you go with an organic option.

Hottest Accessory

Wool Mattress Protector

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.

FloBeds vs. The Other Guys

 Latex vs Polyurethane vs Springs

Have the leading brand name mattresses companies invented a new way to build a bed?  In a word, no. They are working hard to provide more of the same:  bigger beds that require different sheets, sometimes even different headboards.  Yet still they are using the same spring construction, with more layers polyurethane foam.  Sometimes they add a layer of latex.  But in order to keep profits up, you will usually find lots of poly-foam going by the name super-soft foam, upholstery layer, extra plush pillow top

Polyurethane Foam

Polyurethane foam, or poly-foam, is a petroleum product designed to imitate latex derived from the rubber tree (foam rubber).  It weighs about one fourth the weight of latex, and lasts about one fourth as long (3-5 years instead of 20 years for Talatech Latex). Poly-foam is like a sponge.  Because of its open cell structure, every time you move on your bed you are sucking into the bed dust, moisture, old skin, pollens and whatever is in the air.  Wool and latex don’t do this.

Springs

Innersprings do not have the issues that polyurethane foam does.  They can be gauged to different firmnesses.  Probably the best thing going for them are they are incredibly inexpensive compared to natural Talalay latex, but do not last as long without losing their ability to support.

The FloBeds Talalay Latex Mattress

Natural Talalay latex is naturally conforming and supportive.  The FloBed invention allows you to change the firmness on either side of your 100% natural latex mattress anytime for the 20 year life of the mattress.

We don’t use any poly-foam for added plushness in our beds.   Instead, we use wool.  Naturally better.  Our covers are not as “fluffy” as the “high-profile” mattresses sold in many stores, just better.   Our covers unzip, so you can easily hang your mattress-top in the sun.  We suggest sunning your mattress-top a couple of times a year.  Sunning will kill dust mites. Latex is dust mite resistant.  If you suffer from severe allergies, with the top off, you can vacuum  your mattress components to remove allergens.  That, combined with your sunned mattress top will provide you with the cleanest and most comfortable mattress possible.

Just What the Doctor Ordered

Thank you Dr. Lago

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.

One Size Does Not Fit All

Every FloBed Is Personalized For Each Sleeper

We are all different heights, weights, and have different sleeping preferences, so why do most mattress manufactures use the one size fits all mentality? Here at FloBeds we know that your partner might like to sleep on something similar to rock, while you prefer a cloud. That is why FloBeds latex mattresses can be customized. Ever wonder what the inside of a FloBed looks like? Go ahead and take a look under the hood:

exploded-view
