The first FloBeds adjustable Latex mattress design, still selling 20 years later.
The Select Latex Mattress is a great option if you are in the market for a new mattress. The Select Mattress is made up of two 3 inch core layers on each side that can be customized to create the perfect sleeping environment for a sleeper’s specific needs.
The very top layer is called a comfort layer.
That is two inches of convoluted latex, which provides pressure point relief.
All of these layers of latex are wrapped in a luxurious cover. We use wool quilted to organic cotton to create a chemical free yet fire retardant mattress.
Our European Slats compliment the Select Mattress very well. European Slats have more give than the Pine Slats we offer.
The Select Mattress is a great option for customer’s looking to save a little but still desire a luxurious mattress. Test it out with the 100-night test rest we offer.

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.
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.
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

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
-Step out side for some fresh air
FloBeds has been using UPS to send our beds across the U.S. for years. The FloBeds Sleep System comes via UPS ready to place in your room and sleep. Just 8 wing-nuts and a zipper is all the assembly required. Our Smart Packaging saves natural resources (cardboard/trees and fuel). The FloBeds Manufacturer Direct to you business model further saves fuel and lessens your carbon footprint. A FloBeds Mattress & Foundation comes in 4 Cartons with waist high handles.
We talk to many people every day about how easy it is to set up our natural latex mattresses. No component weighs over 30 pounds, so one person can easily set-up their FloBed.
Here is a great example of how easy it is for customers: “You were right a 71 year old woman can set up one of your beds and it was fun. This is a wonderful sleeping unit.” -Donna E.
If Donna can do it so can you! If you need some direction just take a look at the video instructions below.
ps. It may come UPS, but it is not a bag of polyurethane that can be rolled into one box. Natural Latex is real foam rubber, and can not be squeezed into a single box. (we usually ship in 4 or 5 manageable cartons, including foundation).

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.
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.
