Astrabeds sadly no longer sells mattresses. manufactures a latex mattress that they sell exclusively online. Their mattress comes with multiple firmness options. They also provide a dual-sided option so that partners with different preferences can still have what they want on their side. Some customers have had good experiences, but there are some that had issues with initial comfort and durability.
Flobeds is an all-natural Talalay latex mattress company based in California. They have been building latex mattresses for decades and offer a range of mattresses that are mid to high priced. Using only Talalay latex puts their mattresses in the higher end grade for latex mattresses. They also have some nice tools to figure out which firmness foam is right for you.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Flobeds in this match up!

Making sense of customer reviews can be a powerful tool for shoppers. Unfortunately, sleepers don't always feel great about these mattresses. Some are very satisfied with the feel, but others report discomfort. If you are considering buying, there are more details about mattress specifics below.
Some are happy with the supportiveness of these mattresses, but others have described support issues. For those that have tender backs already, make sure to read the reviews to make sure the mattress works for you.
There are some mixed reports about edge support for these mattresses. Some folks have reported good amounts of comfort throughout the mattress, but others had issues with supportive comfort and changes in support.
Mattresses that last a long a time are great, but not always easy to find. These mattresses are not rated well for their longevity by reviewers. That said, some sleepers may discover their mattresses lasts more than a decade, while other customers find their mattress to break down quicker than expected. If you are a bigger person, make sure to take a look at all of your options.
Each of us need to read up on what customers are saying before we buy a product worth hundreds or thousands of dollars. That being said, it isn't always simple for shoppers to get to the bottom of things after looking at many different sites. In our analysis of sentiment and reviews, we found that sleepers score these mattresses above average. However, there is some mixed feedback Make sure to do more research about the specifications.
Having a mattress that supports you will help with spine alignment and comfort over the long term. These mattresses are well regarded for support by most customers, but there are some rare cases where folks haven't felt completely supported.
Edge support is a very important factor for those looking for a great mattress and for those that spend lots of time sitting on the edge of their bed. These mattresses are well regarded for edge support, but some heavier folks may experience more contouring along the sides.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
Bowling ball tests are good measures of firmness and support. These mattresses provide even support overall, but some rarely may experience issues with even support long term.
Companies that properly invest in testing, quality control, and good materials should have durable mattresses. Those that don't put a focus on these things may have some complaints from sleepers. Sadly, these mattresses get mixed feedback from customers on lasting comfort. There are some customers that have complaints about comfort over the short term, while others report a happy night's sleep. Make sure to double-check the warranty and return policies before buying.
I love that this mattress is healthy. Toxic chemicals do known to cause respiratory illness do not continually outgas from this mattress. This mattress is made of natural materials, latex, 100% organic cotton, and wool. My 3 year old sone is very prone to respiratory illness. This mattress doesn't add to him being sick. This mattress is also very, very comfortable. I love it.View More Reviews
I thought I researched high and low for the best bed latex bed I could find for my new family. I was thrilled to find this highly recommended company online... until I actually had to sleep on it, and then deal with customer service. My partner was quickly kicked out of the bed to the guest room as the minute he came in, we rolled to his side of the bed and any movement anyone made, moves the bed like a wave. On top of that we get back and shoulder pain in ways we do not on any other mattress we sleep on! I've expressed all of this to customer service several times for several months and still nothing. Stay away from this company.
I had never tried a latex mattress before so I had no idea how we would like our new bed. Of course I read all the reviews and did quite a bit of research before our purchase. My husband and I have loved the bed ever since our first night. It is solid, but soft, firm but not hard. There is sufficient support and a lot of comfort. We are very happy with this latex mattress system. The only tricky part was putting all the layers down exactly one on top of the other. Zipping it closed was not a problem and the quality of the enclosure is very good.
Well i've been sleeping on this mattress since may of last year and I think I probably should've gone with the softest version. I don't really like firm beds and I switched the layers to better accommodate my sleeping preferences, however, that didn't really help. I would love a softer bed. If you like beds on the firmer side, then you'll probably love this, but not me. Aside from that, I don't like how difficult this bed is to set up. The layers come packaged separate from the rest of the mattress and you have to zip the layers inside of the mattress, and that is a pain in the neck. Not to mention how heavy each part is. Not only that, but if you aren't careful while zipping those layers into the mattress, then you'll damage the foam. Overall, if you are in need of a firm bed and you have back problems, then I would suggest this mattress, but if not, save your money and get a cheap one.
After an exhaustive search through countless websites, and speaking with many in the industry I had settled on a mattress offered by Habitat Furnishings when, by chance, I came across Astrabeds. I liked what I was seeing and made the last minute switch to the Harmony bed. I do not regret it for a second. It was love that first night. I did not require an adjustment period nor did I experience any of the soreness others have while transitioning to a new mattress. While I have had the bed for less than a month, I cannot emphasize enough how pleased I have been so far. Also, the pillows are equally amazing. Just the right density and buoyancy yet remain light. I was very happy with my bamboo pillows but Astrabeds offered free pillows at the time of purchase so there was nothing to lose. Now they are the primary pillows we use with the bamboo relegated to the closet.
Mu husband and I have found our new mattress comfortable from the first night we slept on it.
I supports our bodies from head to foot, but without feeling we are sleeping on a board or extra firm mattress. Although my husband did not think we needed to replace our previous mattress, he admits now
he is sleeping better and more comfortably. Thanks Astrabeds for making me right!
We are both so pleased we chose Astrabed and the Solace bed.
I have my pads sorted so as to firm up the bed. I may need to get another 90 pad(firmest) to add more firmness.
The cover zippers pull apart. The zipper teeth separate as one tries to close the cover. Huge pain in the butt trying to reintegrate the teeth.
I need one more firm pad but now concerned that (A) can't get the cover unzipped due to teeth separation and (B) won't be able to zip the cover closed again.
I am sleeping better.
What I am curious about is how long until the latex weakens so as to lose integrity. Only time will tell which is why I am giving only 4 stars. With such short usage time I'm not comfortable giving any more stars.
I should be asked for a review in a year.
As I sleep alone I am concerned about the wear on just that one side. The mattress weighs a lot so it's impossible for one person to rotate so as to get even wear.
It's almost too difficult to find enough positive adjectives to describe this mattress. It's wonderfully comfortable, supportive and just dreamy to sleep in. When I get in it at the end of the day, I just say, "Ahhhh". The only downside is that i'm not awake long enough to savor it enough.
I received this bed two weeks ago. The first thing I noticed about it is that it was heavy - heavier than any bed I'd ever lifted. But all that weight is pure organic latex. The moment I rolled out the bed and plopped down on it, I felt I was laying on sixty pounds of very high quality product.
On the other hand... I got a 'medium' firmness bed and it seems quite firm to me. In retrospect, I'm thinking I should have either gotten the harmony bed with three inches of extra height to compress or gotten the sonoma bed in the 'soft' firmness. As many of the other reviews have pointed out, this is by far the firmest bed they offer. If you're a side sleeper, you may want to also consider these two alternative options. But again, this is a question of suitability to my own sleeping style rather than product quality.
I bought this bed in December so I have had it for 9 mos now. When I first slept in it it was too hard and my back was sore when I woke up. Customer service recommended I switch the layers around, which I did and it still didn't help. I asked for the softest combination I could get so I could sink into it. It seemed like my shoulder was kind of jambing up because of the firmness. I called again and customer service said they would send me out a new layer free of charge And that I just needed to donate the old layer. Super easy. Customer service was always really helpful. Once I got the soft layer on top of another soft layer it has been the most comfortable bed I have ever owned. I love the fact that I know I am not breathing any toxic fumes at night and I wake up feeling really good and my body doesn't hurt. The only problem with it is it is soooo comfortable that I hate to go on vacation now and sleep in hotel rooms because I miss my bed!
We have noted Mattress holds heat, Partner had to get thick pad because of heat. To put mattress together they should send out instructions if you buy split with different levels of firmness. Had to call to find out how to put together.
We are very pleased with our Serenity Queen mattress. I was a bit worried about buying without having the chance to try it in a store but the delivery was flawlessm, it was very easy to unpack and put on the bed and my husband and I like it very much. One caution: we both like a firm mattress and ordered such but I guess our old mattress had settled in more than I'd realized. The mattress was too firm for me as I'm thin and it felt almost too hard. I added a memory foam pad and it is fine but it would have been better to order one that was a bit softer. I would definitely buy from Astra Bed again
Love that is eco friendy. We got medium firmess, but found it to be too soft. After talking with a costumer representative, he suggested rearranging the layers. Which is easily done, but each individual leayer is heavy and difficult to move. We still have to try the new arrangement, but trust we will be satisfied at the end with the firmess we want.
For the past year I have been suffering from the lingering pain from a lower back injury. After countless massages, physical therapy, and regular yoga practice, I noticed that my symptoms usually diminished during my frequent trips away from home. It must be my bed! So I embarked upon a quest to find a replacement. My physical therapist recommended tempurpedic, but I didn't like the price tag or the multiple reports of allergic reactions I encountered online. I found many organic mattress retailers, but they were all of questionable authenticity and varying price points. After a long search, I found astrabeds and decided to give this mattress a try. So far I have been sleeping more soundly than I have in years.
Took a leap of faith on this bed, since, you know, the store exists on the internet. I felt comfortable with the guarantee, and I'm so glad I made this purchase. After ample research, including a visit to a competitor's awkwardly staffed storefront, from what I could tell, astrabeds offered the highest quality at the most reasonable price. The bed itself is great -- sturdy, but with enough give that it feels comfortable (I don't like a "sinking" mattress), it is supportive and also absorbs/diffuses most motion, making it great for couples, or you know, your special bed friend. I had neck pain and often strained my neck leading up to this purchase, 4 months later, that has essentially dissipated. I recommend this bed to all my friends and have even invited some of them to sleep over BECAUSE IT'S THAT GREAT.
- Mattress and adjustable base are very comfortable. Assembly was easy - although I would consider the full setup option due to the weight and awkwardness of moving the bases.
- We had read some comments regarding selecting the firmness of the mattresses. This lead us to chooses too soft an option. I would suggest going with what you use today for firmness. Exchange of mattress layers was easy, but delays the time you are ready to use the mattress.
- 90 day trial with no hassle return is a misleading. For various reasons, it took 80 days for us to get everything fully delivered. That leaves very little time to evaluate the bed fully setup. Also, the 90 day trial does not include the adjustable base. So, if we decide to return the mattresses, we would have to keep the bases.
Very comfortable. Weight makes putting on contour sheets difficult. Provides great support whether sleeping on side or back. Shipping was on time and the FedEx carrier even put the large b0xes in the bedroom rather than leaving at the door.
Improved quality and duration of sleep. More restful deep sleep
Bed came rolled up and compressed. We let it air out for a day before trying it out. It seemed too thin at first. We could feel the floor when kneeling on it.
Once we put it on the box spring that feeling went away.
The bed is much thinner than our old mattress but it supports us well.
We really like that it is made from natural materials and does not have a chemical smell.
I purchased a top of the line Tempurpedic about 18 months ago to replace my worn out spring mattress. I HATED IT. It sort of swallows you up, so you have to work hard to turn over (and therefore wake up more). It's also HOT. I was not getting a good night's sleep, and was at my wits end. I have always loved latex pillows, so I decided to give Astrabeds a try. I am in love! It's like sleeping on a cloud...a bouncy, supportive cloud. The only thing the old mattress did better was dampening my husband's movement. You do feel movement more with latex, but the new bed is still leaps and bounds over the Tempurpedic. And, it's made in the USA. Love, love, LOVE!
My wife and I got sick of buying a mattress every few years. We decided to take the plunge and buy an expensive, highly rated mattress. We couldn't be happier. We both have back problems and chose medium firm for our firmness level. It is perfect. No cupping and hammocking so far. I even said to my wife it feels like I am a kid again sleeping at grandmas house!
Best sleep ever. Massaging is a total bonus. Unbelievable pain relief
I travel a lot for work so when I get to be home I want to make sure I'm as comfortable as possible and this bed has nailed it so far. It's a pain to put together and you can tell where the different sides of the latex pads are, even when the bed is made. But I have been sleeping like a rock and that's what matters.
The mattress feels very comfortable and maintains its shape very well. It is a great addition to any bed. I specifically love the fact it is all natural.I ordered the mattress via phone and Customer service was very professional and helpful.Also, the mattress arrived before the expected delivery date.
We knew it was time for a new bed and after researching I knew that latex was the route I wanted to go. Astrabeds custom make your bed once you order so it took a bit for it to arrive. When it did, the FedEx driver was pretty unhappy because of how heavy it was. It took two strong men to move it and get it situated on our bed. We just used our original box springs and put a piece of plywoood to create the firm flat base the bed needs. At first... I hated it. It was too hard, I couldn't get used to it...etc. But we gave it time and now I love it. My back doesn't hurt anymore and it seems comfy to me now. I wouldn't get one for a guest bed as I think its kind of an 'acquired' type of bed that your body adjusts to. Overall, if you're thinking of getting one, I say go for it!! They do offer a return policy and want to help you get comfortable with your new bed.
I was worried that when they said "firm" that it wouldn't really be FIRM, but it is. My body is still getting used to this firmness, but it is what I wanted. It has kept its shape and works out great for doubling as a daybed/couch/bed. I use it as my main bed and my back feels great when I get up. The mattress does seem to give off a slight scent that it seems to give to the sheets on top. I am hoping that it will dissipate over time. Overall, the price point and the quality of the organic materials was in a very good spot compared to what other companies would ask you to pay, and that is what made this bed so compelling. All I can say to other shoppers out there, is to really research the firmness you want, because that will be the most important.
I was very impressed with every aspect of my purchase. the sales person was endlessly patience and truthful. I wanted an organic material with no metal springs. So dumped my Duxianna mattress and am very happy with my latex.
I heard that metal coils in the beds are a cause for health issues. I swear by god I've stopped getting headaches and migraines. It's so comfortable to boot.
Price is best i've seen and easy assembly.
After owning and IKEA mattress for ten years, I was suffering from terrible hip pain and was ready for a new mattress. My husband didn't seem to mind the hard, squeaky IKEA mattress, but I spent hours doing research for our next mattress. I had heard of memory foam, but never of latex, and was happy to read about how it doesn't retain heat as much as memory foam (I am a hot sleeper). The mattress was definitely expensive, but you can't put a price tag on a good night's sleep! I loved that I could order a firm mattress for my husband and a soft mattress for me (split king, see photo). My expectations were high on the first night, but the first night was not perfect! Luckily Justin, from Customer Service, was able to help us. He suggested a new arrangement for the three mattresses and that worked. The great thing about these mattresses is that you can rearrange the three layers to get different levels of softness/hardness. Justin was great, always answered my e-mail immediately and even phoned to ask how I was sleeping. My husband now loves his mattress and so do I. Oh, I also loved that there are no chemicals used as latex is a natural material. You can't go wrong with an Astra mattress!!
I've been using my Astrabed for over a month now. I have been very satisfied with the comfort of my bed. I usually wake up with back pain most of the time, and since I started sleeping on the Astrabed my back has felt much better and I don't wake up sore.
My mom visited so I let her use my bed and I slept in the year room. One night after she returned back to her home, she told my dad she liked my mattress more than theirs.
The very first night I slept in this bed, it was heaven! I had a memory foam bed for many years, but boy do I like this bed even better. I prefer a hard bed, and the beauty of this bed is it gives the support I need but the top layer is very soft (I got the medium-hard mattress). I also am always cold, so I appreciate how this bed holds my body heat well.
Got a CA King size mattress to replace a 10 year old innerspring one. Settled on soft, having read many reviews about latex mattresses running generally firmer than other types of mattresses. Turned out a wise decision -- does not feel too soft at all, more like what one would expect from medium.
The only word of caution is about its weight -- pretty heavy, takes at least 2 strong men to handle. Other than that the installation is pretty easy, fits perfectly in its nice fabric enclosure.
GREAT BED. GREAT QUALITY. I SPENT QUITE A BIT OF TIME RESEARCHING THE TYPE OF BED WE WANTED AND THIS FIT THE BILL. IT PERFORMS AS DESCRIBED.
I WOULD RECOMMEND BUYING A BOX SPRING SEPARATE. IT DOES NOT FIT THE MATTRESS. OBVIOUSLY THEY OUTSOURCE THE BOX SPRING.
I purchased the Medium Serenity bed in September 2014. I love it. I am mainly a side sleeper and it gives me the perfect support. It also feels great when I sleep on my back or stomach. My previous mattress, an old Sealy posturepedic, was hurting my back. I researched and found Astra beds, and am glad I did. Before I bought one, I tried out some other latex mattresses to give me a feel for them, but this one is the most comfortable by far.
I love this bed. My wife and I both sleep better since getting this bed. However, when it was delivered, the bed was delivered late because one of the boxes had exploded open (because the contents were previously vacuum sealed in a plastic bag that ripped). They had to drive a separate U-haul just to bring the box that exploded (and poorly taped back together) to my house. Astrabeds has been diligently trying to get to the bottom of this mishap. But all that said, this bed is still fantastic! I would buy another one in a heartbeat... but ask them to double bag it this time. :)
We were looking for a comfortable bed that would provide good support and also "breathe" . Both my wife and I have found that any mattress with a foam top layer is too hot to sleep comfortably. After reading all we could find we decided to try latex, and chose AstraBed. We have not been disappointed, the bed delivers on its advertised features. AstraBed have been very supportive and helpful, and you can't lose with their warranty. We particularly like the organic aspect, as we wanted to avoid anything with fire retardent chemicals added.
This bed is amazing! Was skeptical to order online after shopping several stores but I am so happy that I did. We ordered the Serenity Cal. King in medium and it accommodates my husband (side sleeper) and I (used to be a stomach sleeper-now I rest peacefully on my back!) perfectly. We look forward to many years of our amazing and natural bed!! Thanks Astrabeds!
My wife and I have bad backs. The internet research indicated this type bed may be the ticket? The other beds we have (four other beds in the house) tend to wiggle when a person rolls over. It was at the point that we would spend a considerable amount of money to get some rest. We needed a firm mattress that would:
1 Not "form fit to each person sleeping on it" but would recover to its original shape
2. Not wiggle when one person moves,
3. Support the body in any position,
4. Large enough to fit two adults and two kids to lay on it for TV movie time,
5. Allow air circulation around the bed because we have Hydronic Heating in the floor and the floor cannot be covered. Covering the floor results in no heat in the room. We live in cold wet Seattle,
6. Preferably light to move for cleaning the room and carpets,
7. Will not have aromas of gas off like other synthetic foams.
8. Have longevity and last us more than a couple of years.
9. Mattress durability when being moved.
This mattress accomplishes some of the goals
The mattress is actually 4 pieces. It consists of a cover holder that retains the various foam layers, a large foam layer (about 8 inches thick), and two smaller foams (about 2 inch thick each). Each of the two smaller foams has different durometer ratings (hardness ratings). We first tried only the large foam only. It was too hard. We then tried the middle foam (firm on top of the hard and the softest on top of the firm). This was much too soft. We then tried the 2 inch hard foam on top of the 2 inch soft foam. This was still too soft. We then tried only the 8 inch foam and the hard 2 inch foam and eliminated the soft 2 inch foam. This is where we are today. Each trial period lasted about 2 to 3 weeks (except the single 8 inch) layer. We only slept on this for about 5 days because the other two layers had not arrived. (The bed came in two different packages delivered at two different times).
We have been sleeping on the various renditions (stacks) of the mattress foam for almost 3 months.
We both still have back pain.
As for our list:
1. Not "form fit to each person sleeping on it" but would recover to its original shape – So far the mattress seems to have a good hysteresis (the ability for the material to return to its original shape) We tried some artificial foam mattress before the Astra and although the artificial foam recovered, it took a long time to recover and it would also tend to pocket too much when rolling over leaving lumps. The Astra foam does not seem to pocket and it returns almost immediately to its original shape.
2. Not wiggle when one person moves. While we understand that a lot of the movement of a bed is due to its frame, we know from experience that in other beds, just the makeup of the bed with springs etc , motion on the bed will pull other parts of the structure and result in motion, or what I will call wiggling when two people are in a bed and one moves. I in fact can actually feel a regular bed move from my heart beat. The Astra does not have this motion.
3. Support the body in any position. The Astra Bed seems to accomplish this. Due to my bad back, I move a considerable amount during the night. I will move from my back to either side numerous times. With each roll my body will have different curves on the mattress. It does not seem to matter what position I end up in, the mattress still recovers nicely without pockets.
4. Large enough to fit two adults and two kids to lay on it for TV movie time – We purchased the standard King Size bed. Our other bed was a California King. The standard Astra King mattress is shorter and wider than a California King. We are using the California King bottom springs mounted on top of 2 x6 boards which brings the height of the bed off of the floor. We separated the California King bottom springs about 4 inches beneath a plywood top. We placed the Astra bed on top of the plywood with a space at the head of the bed where we have place additional foam to make up the difference. The result is a California Bed length with the width of a Standard King. Plenty of room for kids next to us or at the foot of the bed to watch movies.
5. Allow air circulation around the bed because we have Hydronic Heating in the floor and the floor cannot be covered. Covering the floor results in no heat in the room. We live in cold wet Seattle – The above description (4) allows for air circulation beneath the bed and warm air to escape into the room.
6. Preferably light to move for cleaning the room and carpets- This is not a light bed, nor portable. The Astra Foam is very difficult to handle due to its flexibility. It has no handles. Its like moving a 250 lb piece of jello. The foam itself is also delicate. It will tear easily if not careful. Don't jump on it! Movie night should not include a trampoline on mom and dad's bed. It would be a good idea to have a frame made that could sandwich the mattress together and allow it to be moved as a unit then when being used as a bed, the top support of the sandwich could be removed to allow use of the Mattress. Maybe a honeycomb type of frame?
7. Will not have aromas of gas off like other synthetic foams – There was only a small aroma after opening the plastic bag that held the foam. I am very susceptible to vapors and aromas. I tried the artificial foam and it was not acceptable. The Astra foam did not have the chemical smell.
8. Have longevity and last us more than a couple of years – this has yet to be determined however the "guarantee is that if there is a problem, Astra will replace it.
9. Mattress durability when being moved – This was covered in item "6" above.
This is not an inexpensive bed. I anticipate notifying Astra of the soft 2 inch thick foam that is not being used anymore and asking to return it for reimbursement since we will not be using it.
The outer cover holding the Latex foam is difficult to move and should have additional edge support with handles allowing the re-positioning of the mattress on top of whatever frame it sits on. I think the zippers around the outside and the cover material itself will eventually tear. It should be made of a sturdier material because the Latex itself is so flexible.
My wife loves the fact that when I get up at night, she does not feel any motion. This allows her to continue her rest.
Overall, we will be keeping the bed. I will probably come up with a different type of bed frame to accommodate a higher bed and solid supports. I looked at the frames available from Astra and opted to not purchase due to the apparent lack of leg support (not enough gussets to eliminate bed motion).
We went out on a limb buying the Astra bed because we couldn't try it first, but it is great!
My wife and I retired in 2014 and decided to add some comfort to our sleep by purchasing a new mattress. Our old mattress was over 25+ years old and had a number of pressure points hurting the backs. I reviewed various mattresses on-line with pros and cons regarding their composition and concluded the latex layered memory foam one was the best for us. I was skeptical in purchasing the Serenity on-line since I never laid on this type of mattress before. After sleeping on this mattress for five weeks, I am happy with my purchase with its comfort (backs feel better refreshed upon awakening) and how the foam quickly responds back upon turning from different positions. The only problem that I experienced was a slight delivery problem which the company quickly and graciously corrected.
Enjoying my Serenity bed so far. I got the medium density variant. I find it much more comfortable to sleep on my side than an innerspring mattress. I don't have any problem shifting position as I sleep on my side, back and stomach during the course of a night.
Downsides are that the mattress is very heavy and unwieldy. Difficult to move without someone to help.
It also has some moderate heat retention. This is both a benefit and a negative in my opinion. I am going to try it for a while with a simple cotton mattress pad/protector. If heat retention becomes a bigger deal, I may try adding a gel mattress topper.

My brother, Darrell, had highly recommended the FloBed, so I ordered your queen size about 2-3 years ago. I have a history of behaving like the princess and the pea; I am very finicky about my mattress. Before purchasing your FloBed, I tried purchasing a memory foam topper and after just ONE night (not even!), my back was screaming at me in major pain! I could not even make it through that one night and ended up trying to straighten out my back by laying directly on the hard floor. That did not do the trick either. Obviously, it was quickly returned to the store! It took a full month to finally get my back to the place, it was tolerable again. When I purchased your mattress, you can imagine my fear when hearing it had ANY kind of memory foam and so I was skeptical, plus the price compounded that fear. Once your mattress arrived, I was cautiously excited about trying it out that night. I am happy to report that I slept pain-free! UPS is typically not my preferred vendor, as the boxes for my deliveries usually arrive damaged. Yes, it did have a corner damaged but fortunately the mattress was fine. Thank you for my good nights sleep bed!
We enjoyed reading the account of 20 years of dreams in a box. What a account of believing to accomplish your goal. You certainly have made a wonderful product. We love sleeping in our flobed. We recently moved to another location instead of having our hired movers deal with the flobed, we decided to move it ourselves. We rolled up each section of the latex mattress and filled six large plastic garbage bags. We loaded them into our hatchback car, dismantled the frame and set up the bed in our new location. it is our prize possession. We always look forward to a good night sleep in our flobed. We got the idea for packing our bed like that from how it was packed by you all and shipped to us via UPS. It is a very efficient form of transportation. Much easier than hauling a large box spring and mattress through a hallway. Thanks again for building such a quality product.
Congratulations on 20 years! When we were considering a Flo Bed, we thought we'd ride over to Fort Bragg from Lakeport and try them out. Did not think about how to get it home but had heard they came in sections, etc. Getting beds upstairs is not fun. After testing and resting for several hours, we chose our bed. We asked if all would fit in our pick up and you said no problem. Sure enough, our new queen size Flo Bed went home in our regular size pick-up even with a camper shell with room to spare. While UPS did not bring our bed to our door, we think it's pretty amazing how you package each piece. Getting a queen size bed upstairs and around corners was never easier. Thanks for many years of comfortable sleep. Our pillows are the best, too.
Every year our family camps at Caspar for a week in June. Our brother-in-law, Don Dillier, had been telling us about your beds for about 2 years prior to our stay in June of 2013. He just raved and raved about how comfortable the Talalay latex beds were. So on that fateful day of June 25, 2013 he brought us to your store in Fort Bragg and introduced us to your beds. Needless to say we left that day having purchased one of your queen size beds along with two of your super comfortable twice fluffed pillows. We have been happy every since that day. We have even come back to buy pillows for our kids. You were super helpful in helping to get the bed just right in making adjustments to personalize the bed for each of us. Now we look forward to going to bed every night knowing that we have a great nights sleep ahead of us. Thanks, and we would be happy to make a statement about how awesome it was too receive the bed in boxes and take that journey in creating the best nights sleep we have ever had.
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.
I wanted to send you an email to say we are enjoying our Flobed. I think it is working and will continue to work really well. I do like the additional softness on my side. Will it hold up even though it is softer? As far as UPS, our Flobed arrived promptly in 4 boxes through UPS. The driver was incredibly nice and accommodating and put the boxes in my garage as I requested. I was able to put the bed together easily by myself using the directions included. It is a split queen with customized firmness levels on each side so the pieces were manageable to handle myself. It fits perfectly on top of our platform bed. The materials are very high quality. My husband and I have been sleeping on it for about 5 weeks. My husband says his back feels better since getting this mattress. I am glad I spoke with you and followed your suggestions regarding firmness. You were right. Thanks very much for your help. A friend of mine may be ordering a Flobed based on my recommendation. She is going to come and lay on our bed and I will show her the inside of the bed. Do you offer your current customers a bonus for sending new customers?
A Mattress That Will Last a Lifetime It took me the third try but am I super glad that I found Flo-beds. with the other ones I was waking up 5 & 6 times a night or more, OUCH!!! When I called Flo-beds & talked to them about their V-zone it sounded very logical how you could dial it in for both of us but even then after my last 2 tries you just do not know. Am I ever happy that we tried the third time because the small of my back was just killing me. It cost a bit more, but believe me it is worth every bit of it !! After we first set it up I had to re-dial my side 3 times but once you find the right combination, WOW it was great. It doesn't have the poisons from the fire proofing, you don't need a ladder to get on it, & it will never start sagging & developing lumps. I also like the way you can zip off the top & hang it out in the sun to refresh it. This for sure was the best investment we could have made, it will last us a very long time. You could save yourself a lot of time & just get the V-zone right off the get-go. If you an accident or get hurt some other way all you have to do is re-dial it till you get better & then put it back.
One Saturday morning seven years ago, I was unable to walk because my right leg wouldn't work! Pressure on my right hip from my old conventional mattress, along with the fact that I do not move at all in my sleep, made the leg go dead for several minutes! It scared me pretty badly, and I found FloBeds online that day because I knew I needed a better mattress alternative. I knew I was going out on a limb to order a mattress online. But I searched exhaustively and found nothing but praise for your mattresses. The customizable aspect appealed to me. When my new mattress arrived, I was prepared for it to look impossibly small in its boxes, but I was not prepared for how much fun it would be to unwrap! Watching each piece expand and testing all the variations of squishiness was as exciting as the anticipation of a new sleep experience! Seven years later, I am still loving my customized Flo Bed mattress as much as I did at the start! It is in perfect, out of the box condition! I have told so many about this incredible mattress and how it has improved my health! I look forward to lying down on it every night and frequently think as I am falling asleep, Thank heaven for my mattress!
I had a back injury and could not even sleep in my bed anymore. I purchased a flo bed and my life totally changed. I sleep through the night now and my back feels way better. Thanks, flo bed.
I have been meaning to write a review for some time, but it has been hard to find time with a toddler. Your promise of a Twice Fluffed Travel Pillow caught my eye because all of my recent road trips have found my trusty, yet bulky, natural Twice Fluffed Pillow riding shotgun. I was sleeping on a 12 year old conventional innerspring mattress when I got pregnant. As I grew larger, hip pain started keeping me awake - I was flipping from side to side constantly between nighttime bathroom trips. No amount of extra cushion under my hip helped me sleep. I took to the web looking for a new mattress, and I quickly settled on FloBeds. We were also due to move a few months and there were boxes piled along the walls in our small second floor apartment. I remember thinking that having a mattress we could box back up would be more convenient on the stairs for the friends we'd enlisted to help us move. I remember checking the UPS tracking page daily. My husband helped the delivery person carry the boxes up the stairs and we set it up right away. We were impressed with how comfortable the mattress was and have nothing but positive things to say about sleeping on our cloud . Since then: I delivered our baby at home on our FloBed, have easily swapped the cores as my body has changed postpartum, and purchased a twin-sized FloBed for our daughter. Thank you for crafting such an excellent product. If you have any questions, or are in the market for a born-on-FloBed toddler model, let me know.
Dewey and his father really took the time to answer my questions.i had purchased 6 beds off the internet and none were comfortable for me.so far I’m liking my flobed(v zone).i would say I’ve had it for three months.
What other bed can customize two different sleepers top layer to bottom layer and head to toe like a Flo bed. We have had ours for six months and it is everything we expected and more.
Best mattress ever
We switched to a FloBed last year when my wife started having should pain from our Stearns & Foster bed. Immediately she felt relief and has been pain free ever since. Great product!!
It is the most comfortable nights sleep. We are side sleepers and we enjoy getting firm support without the painful pressure points.
Ordered an additional core and as always, Dewey made it a seamless and easy process. I am very happy with my purchase and have been getting the best sleep ever.
We ordered the Flobed on faith, hoping that it would be better than our 5-year-old Original Mattress Factory mattress. Assembly was no problem. We have been sleeping much better with no hip or shoulder pain. Great addition to our home!
My wife and I had it for a year now and we love it. We have different preferences, she likes it softer, I like it harder. We both get our perfect bed this way. Customer service is great also. We can only recommend Flo Beds.
I purchased a king size vZone bed a bit over a year ago. I have not regretted this purchase what so ever. Many nights I say that I have purchased the best bed ever. I also ordered the latex pillows. The bed is very comfortable and is consistent from edge to edge. I highly recommend this bed and would definitely purchase the vZone again if I were making another purchase.
I was waking up in the morning stiff and with pain in my lower back and C-spine for years sleeping on a major brand memory foam mattress. I did lots of research and decided to try a natural latex mattress. I selected a FloBed mattress because of the way they do business, no hard selling, no hounding with ads on every web site I visited and the concept of being able to customize the bed to my exact requirement. I can say after living with the bed for a couple of months and make one small adjustment in one section of the mattress I have never been more satisfied with mattress. I now wake up pain free, sleep cooler and don't wake up during the night from back pain. The customer service is first rate. You can buy a cheaper mattress but not one that is so customizable. From the first night I have been totally happy with the mattress and if you are considering a new mattress this is a great product and a great company. I am totally satisfied customer.
In the immortal words from the movie "The Matrix" this mattress has proven to be "The One". I shopped around for along time and did lots of research. Have had this for about a year and it's fantastic.
My husband and I both have bad backs. After 2 years of research, I ended up with the wrong mattress. I was lamenting to a friend of mine and she said the same thing happened to her. She was unhappy with her mattress purchase - but then she was introduced to Flobeds and her life was transformed. I couldn't believe how much she loved her bed. So I dove in head first -- while the sticker shock hurt, it's so worth it! My husband and I couldn't be happier!!
About six years ago, I bought my first FloBed, a queen size mattress and it was shipped and delivered on time to Anchorage Alaska, where we can almost see Russia from our house. :) After some research, I bought two twice fluffed pillows to help me count more sheep! Several years and a wedding later, my wife and I bought a king size organic latex mattress and once again it was delivered by speedy UPS. Packaging was still in great condition and delivered straight to our doorstep. My wife and I love our FloBed and we make sure we recommend the company to family and friends when one is searching for a new mattress. Thanks for your great products. Looking forward to the travel pillow as we miss our pillows and mattress when we vacation. Thanks for producing great products!!
Dave, I bought my first Cal King FloBed in 2008 for my home. It came UPS in boxes that were fairly heavy, therefore I knew that this was not a flimsy urethane mattress set. The instructions were easy to follow and the bed was assembled in a little over an hour following the easy to understand instructions. The best was yet to come. The first night sleeping on the new mattress was as if was moths old and broken in by months of wear. It has remained the same firmness with absolutely no sagging or hollowing since new. This prompted me to purchase a second Cal King in 2009 for my second home that had a high end coil mattress at that time. Same results as the first mattress and both mattresses are performing as they did when new, and that is the rest of the story! I also purchased two of the latex double shredded pillows. I found them to be too firm so I purchased an extra cover for the pillows and divided the shredded foam to make three pillows. Now I have the three best pillows I have ever used. They are perfect for my back and side sleeping. Thanks Dave... for choosing the latex mattress business.
Almost a year ago, after a lot of research, my wife and I purchased an Organic Natural Talalay vZone Mattress from FloBeds. You personally took the time to assist us in making the choices in designing the custom arrangement. It arrived in boxes and was simple to put together. After a few months, we made one change to my wife's side and we both found the mattress to be the most comfortable and therapeutic of the many mattresses we have purchased over the years. In fact, the mattress is so good that we miss the comfort when traveling. In addition, we chose a few months ago to replace our guest bedroom mattress with exactly the same FloBeds mattress and configuration so our guests can enjoy the same comfort we have. We have also recommended your mattress to friends.
About two years ago my wife and I were in dire need of a new mattress. We were sleeping in a queen-size conventional spring mattress. We had two problems 1) my wife was going through menopause and her sleep was restless at best. I felt every one of her dozens of toss and turns so my sleep quality wasn't much better than hers and 2) we were both experiencing back pain and general aches and pains upon waking every morning. So off we we went to mattress store after mattress store and, after much frustration, almost settled for a tempurpedic memory foam mattress. We couldn't pull the trigger though because we just didn't want to sleep in a bed of chemicals. We wanted something organic and chemical-free so I started searching online and clicked on a link to your Flo beds. It felt somewhat serendipitous because we had been to beautiful Fort Bragg not long before. After reading your bed descriptions, manufacturing process, reviews and fitting process I told my wife about you guys. We live in the Southeast and were both apprehensive about ordering an expensive bed sight unseen and especially one we'd have to assemble. We called with our questions and for a little reassurance. We ended up convinced this was the right bed for us and ordered our organic v-zone King-size Flo bed. At this point we began to wait, albeit impatiently, for our new bed. Finally d-day (delivery day) arrived. The UPS truck backed into our driveway and began unloading box after box and my wife and I exchanged sideways glances wondering what we'd gotten ourselves into after all. Our other mattress had been moved out of our bedroom so we were ready to start building our new one. Assembling our Flo bed was so unbelievably easy. Because each layer is explicitly labeled and you provide step-by-step instructions, including a pictorial, there was no guess work involved. Honestly, the most difficult part was breaking down and recycling all the cardboard boxes. We don't plan to ever own anything other than a Flo bed regardless of where we live and can't wait to upgrade our guest rooms with Flo beds.
Congratulations on 20 years! My husband and I ordered our king sized FloBed about 5 years ago, after sleeping on a hand-me-down spring mattress on the floor - talk about an upgrade! Having an organic latex mattress with the ability to switch out layers was a huge plus for us, and we've been very happy and comfortable ever since. Living in NYC in a 4th floor walk up, I have no idea how we would have gotten a traditional king sized bed up the stairs. It was awesome to have our FloBed delivered by UPS in multiple boxes - making transport much easier. We are due to have our first baby in about 6 weeks, and plan to get him a FloBed for his crib as well. We are absolutely in love with our mattress and can't wait to give him the same experience! All the best,
I'd like to say how much this bed has helped my daughter. After a car accident with three slipped discs she could not sleep because of the injuries .she would be up All night .after 2 years of restless nights i called dave the fouder of flobeds. I've heard on the radio for over 10 years about flobeds made in Fort Bragg and shipped worldwide and I lived only 30 miles away! I took a chance on a fairly expensive bed but it was worth every penny and more. The very first night we setup the bed my daughter had some good sleep and relief from her back pain. To this day, 2 years later, it's the only bed she wants to sleep on. When she visits others she brings a layer of her flobed with her. Dave at flobeds did everything to help us, from custom comfort zones to fit christina to weekly adjustments and even extending a personal loan to me who he never met. I am thankfull. Excellent quality beds and awsome people... that's flobeds. I bought my brother a bed and next I'm getting one for myself.
Needing to replace my 25 year old Dux bed, I began a search online to help me decide which beds I needed to research further. I then realized a new world of bedding in a box delivered to one?s front door existed. It sounded logical that I could save money by the seller not needing brick and mortar stores across the country. It also became clear to me that memory foam was not the best choice?off gassing, hot, and a mushy feel were just some of the complaints I consistently read about. I ended up choosing the 100% organic latex FloBed and my husband and I couldn?t be happier. There was no adjustment period; we slept comfortably from the first night. There was no chemical odor and neither of us feels like the mattress heats up during the night. I also have to compliment the patience level of everyone that answered my numerous phone calls. To summarize I would tell those searching for a good night?s chemical free sleep, to go with the 100% natural organic latex?it is worth the little extra you may have to pay. When you think about something as long lasting and important as a mattress, I would not advise skimping on price. I would also add that we have your customizable latex pillows and they too are wonderful!
I live in Canada. Flobeds is located in California. Buying a bed without trying it, and from another country was a daunting task. However, it is the best bed I have ever slept on. I read countless reviews, and participated in an online bed forum ? yes, they do exist. Ultimately, I decided to move forward with Flobeds for the following reasons: Outstanding product quality Superb customer service (very patient) Incomparable reputation of taking care of clients I am so glad I bought this bed as I sleep soundly, and wake refreshed every day. Thank you Flobeds!
We had just moved into a new home, bought a new bed and were in need of a mattress. I did the typical online research (well, a lot more than most people) and decided the overwhelming winner to be FloBed. I used the online design tool and then spoke to someone at FloBeds to ensure I was selecting the appropriate bed for me and my wife. I placed the order and anxiously awaited the delivery. It showed up just as advertised - in a box, well, several boxes. My wife and I had actually had fun putting everything together. The labeling, instructions and online videos were very helpful. Once everything was stacked and zipped up, we put on the FloBed sheets and took her for the maiden voyage. I've never had this kind of relaxing feeling on any bed I've ever slept on. It just doesn't compare to anything else. I've owned several Tempurpedic, which felt good in the store, but eventually didn't live up to expectations. We've been sleeping on our FloBed for 6 months and it's the most relaxing, comfortable sleep we have ever had. I'm certain we will continue to be loyal customers and will recommend FloBed to friends and relatives.
I would love to comment and share my experience with FloBeds and the delivery. First, I would like to comment on how nice your staff is, truely the best staff in sales I have ever worked with. The delivery was easy and painless. I recieved my king-sized bed in 6 boxes ~60lbs each, all of which were right outside my door. All I had to do was bring them and start opening up what felt like presents. I took them straight up stairs and started pulling everything out. It took me about an hour to set up the platform and bed. I have videotaped the entire thing if you are interested in using it for any reason. I sped up the footage so the video is about 10 minutes long. Thanks so much for an amazing service,
We purchased our Flobed 4 years ago, and love it as much today as we did the day we got it. Both of us have very different body and sleep styles and back problems, and the extremely customizable Flobed has been a savior for us. We have not yet had to swap out any of our sections, as we have been able to simply rearrange them when our needs changed. We also love that Flobeds has the same passion and commitment to environmental sustainability as we do -- natural latex, organic cotton, organic wool,and certified wood all come together in an incredibly comfortable bed. This was one of the best investments we've ever made. Thank you, and here is to 20 more years of Flobeds!
We love our Flobed! In the fall of 2013 we were looking for a new bed and did not enjoy what we were finding in the retail outlets. We tried traditional beds, air-filled beds and memory foam beds. My wife searched online and started telling me about Flobeds and how great the user feedback was, including the positive comments from Mark Ruffalo. I studied your web site and was interested and we both knew we wanted to visit Fort Bragg and meet the people at Flobeds and try the beds out. Our drive north from Southern California was fun and we were glad to meet Dave and Dewey at the Flobed store. They were both very friendly and helpful. We knew after a couple of hours trying out their beds that they were exactly what we were looking for. The following February we made our online order and in March, UPS rolled up to our house with seven boxes. The UPS driver carried all the boxes into the house for us. It seemed a little overwhelming at first until I opened the first box with the easy to follow instructions. I assembled the Euro slat bed frame with turned legs and then built up the V-Zone mattress. It did not take long to get a rhythm going and a short time later the bed was fully assembled. We have enjoyed the bed ever since. It is comforting, supportive and gives us both a nice sense of peace and relaxation. I was also concerned that the foam might be hot, and we have actually found it to be comfortable in all temperatures. Thank you to the team at Flobeds for making such a wonderful product.
My whole family simply adores our flobeds! My husband and I ordered your natural latex V-Zone when we upgraded to a king size bed several years ago as an anniversary present to ourselves. Since my early 20s, I have become a princess and the pea sleeper ? EXTREMELY picky about my mattresses and pillows as pressure points would result in a numb leg or arm. When I married my husband, he had to come to terms with my armada of pillows and mattress toppers which I used to get comfortable. I encountered your website when exploring latex mattresses after having a pair of shoes with natural latex soles that were very comfortable and kept their spring forever. We were hesitant to order a mattress online but were encouraged by the reviews and what I call your layer exchange until it feels great policy. We also liked the idea that each of us would have a customized side of the bed that fits our sleeping styles, weight and body type. The outcome has been glorious! Your website predicted our mattress layers perfectly and we never had to use the exchange. My husband and I love our bed more than any other and find ourselves thankful when returning from even wonderful vacations because we get to sleep in our flobed again. Meanwhile, our kids have fallen in love with our flobed and are constantly trying to invade it. Last year, we decided to try your student mattresses for my sons bunkbed. As I could not see that there could be choice in layer firmness online and knew he wanted it to be softer like mine, I called your office and your team was able to have it made with layers that would approximate the softness of my side of our king mattress. When they arrived in the boxes, he and my daughter were so excited to create his mattresses and test if they were as amazing as ?moms and dads?. They absolutely love them and my daughter does not mind sleepovers in her brothers room because they are so comfortable. We are saving up so she can have one in her room sometime as well. My son and I were just discussing the other day whose mattress was more perfect: mine or his. We eventually decided his was perfect for him and mine was perfect for me and are looking forward to decades of sleeping on our respective mattresses, happily ever after! Thank you for making a wonderful product and for such excellent customer service!
I love my bed it is comfortable it is like sleeping on a cloud with no toxins! I told my son about the mattress and he and my daughter in-law laid on mine and had to purchase one, I also bought one for my grandsons crib. Everything came in boxes and were wrapped really good, the directions were easy to understand as well as watching Dewy talk about how to assemble it in the video. I would highly recommend these mattresses to everyone! The best out there!
My husband and I are very pleased with our new mattress. We really battled over purchasing without trying it out, as buying a mattress has normally been a searching game. Trying to find a mattress that we both are satisfied with has not been easy in the past. We read several reviews, trying to find out what type of mattress was best. From the reviews, we determined we wanted to buy an all latex mattress. We were only able to try a couple different latex mattresses here locally, and I was not impressed, as they were all very firm. My husband found in his research, that FloBed was recommended over and and over. He was insistent on purchasing, based on reviews. I was not so easily persuaded, as I hated the thought of buying a mattress without first spreading out over it, to see how I liked it. Because of the amazing return policy set in place, should we not be satisfied, I figured we had nothing to lose. When the mattress came, I was amazed at how easy it was to set up. We had our box spring and mattress all put together in less than 30 min. We bought the V-zone series, so we were able to customize each of our own sides. I loved the flexibility of being able to change out the different layers, should we later decide we liked a certain area softer, or firmer. My previous experience of trying store bought mattresses, consisted with going back and forth, tossing and turning, trying to see the difference from the previous one, and indecisive on whether I liked it or not. I have to say, as SOON as I lay on the mattress, I felt I was on a cloud. Which is exactly what everyone says that lays on it. Best sight unseen purchase EVER!! Thank you for an amazing mattress!!!
I was so excited to buy a new bed when we moved into our new house. We bought an expensive memory foam bed that had such a strong chemical smell I couldn't stand to sleep on it! I had to wait 30 days to return it so I wrapped it in plastic and started my hunt for a better option. After a great deal of research I decided to give natural latex a try. There were not any stores selling natural latex beds within a reasonable driving distance and I was not wild about the idea of buying a bed without trying it out first. However, I decided to give Flobeds a try because each side is fully adjustable and I could return it if it didn't work out. One of the best decisions I have ever made! I had to make a couple adjustments to the layers but it was easy and now I have a perfect bed! I used to toss and turn trying to get comfortable, waking up several times a night, and now I often sleep all night without changing position -- it's that comfortable! Whenever we travel, even to hotels with great beds, I still can not wait to get back home to my own bed. Until we bought our Flobed I had no idea what I was missing but, now that I do, I will never go back to an unhealthy, uncomfortable bed. Oops, I almost did not mention the UPS delivery but I would say that it arrived quickly in boxes that were easy for me to move and unpack on my own. I had he bed put together in no time.
Our experiences going thru the different mattress options included a traditional pillow top to Temperpedic. Many sore backs and sleepless nights searching for a mattress along with the frustrations of trying something in the store and hoping that it equated to the comfort promised. Then I found Latex and more importantly Flobeds and the flexibility your product provides. I happily provide my endorsement to all family, friends and coworkers on your mattress solution that I honestly believe to be the best product on the market.
