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.

Customer Review

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 Back, Side and Stomach Sleepers

Back, Side and Stomach Sleepers

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.

vZone Layers provide adjustable pressure relief for shoulders and hips and extra lumbar support

If you have more questions please give us a call at 1-800-356-2337 and one of our firmness experts can give you more information on which mattress configuration fits your sleeping position.  Or use our firmness advisor for our natural latex mattress.
