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!

FloBeds believes in a good nights sleep for both you, and your 4 legged friends. FloBeds Natural Latex Dog Beds!!
Fun Fact Friday: your furry friend can have a FloBed too! For years we’ve had customers call us and ask us to make a custom Dog Bed out of the same ingredients they are enjoying every night: Organic Cotton and 100% Natural Talalay Latex. Check out our dog beds to make sure you dog gets the best night’s sleep.
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
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.
Many people who work in offices sit at desks for 8 hours! This can cause back pain. The yoga instructor featured in the video below is named Jake and he says, “Back pain is an epidemic in America. And the pain is accentuated by our desk culture and the use of mobile devices.” (Yoga With Jake: 10-Minute Yoga Routine to Ease Back Pain) So if Jake was describing you, or if you are looking for a good stretch take a look at the video below.
Have you ever stoped to think what your ideal day would look like? People are different, so do not force yourself to adhere to the typical daily routine. If you work a 9-5 job you will have to work around those times but you can still figure out what works best for you.
Important to keep in mind: -Don’t forget to take breaks when you work -Exercise matters -Step out side for some fresh air
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!).” Sincerely, Keith and Tammy of Virginia T.K. Williams Brookneal, VA

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.
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.
“We’ve had our beds for almost 3 years, and there are still a couple of times a week that we’re sitting up in bed, drinking our morning coffee, ‘taking our massage’ and one of us will say. “Boy am I glad we got these beds!”. They truly are SO comfortable.” -Susan K Susan is referring to her FloBed and the adjustable base she purchased for her natural latex mattress. One our new favorite adjustable bases is the S-Cape. Here is comfort that transcends anything you’ve ever experienced before. Luxurious comfort you customize at the touch of a button. Deeply satisfying comfort in an infinite selection of positions. Features *Plug-in Electrical Components – All electrical components plug into a central junction box for easy replacement in the rare event of a component failure. Motors, massage units and hand control are factory tested prior to shipping. *Plywood Base Platform – Only the finest plywoods are used for platforms, providing a strong unbreakable surface for your FloBeds Mattress. *Quiet Operation – Two powerful, yet extremely quiet, DC electric lift motors respond instantly and smoothly. Maintenance and service free.
