latex mattress

Latex mattress get the highest customer satisfaction rating out of all of the different types of mattresses. The majority of customers who sleep on latex mattress say that latex mattresses offer them comfort and support that they haven’t received from any other kind of mattress.

Latex mattresses are a breakthrough new product. But, are they really new? Latex foam mattresses have actually been around since 1929. The process for making latex mattresses has been around for quite some time.

Latex mattresses are made from rubber trees. The sap of the rubber tree is used to manufacture natural latex mattresses. The sap is ‘foamed’ into latex foam. It is whipped into a porous and some-what soft bedding material.

There are two major manufacturing processes that are used to make latex mattresses. The Talalay and Dunlop processes are used to create memory foam mattresses. The Talalay process is the most traditional method and widely used method.

Latex mattresses are naturally hypoallergenic, pest resistant, odor-free and anti-microbial. These mattresses are perfect for people with asthma and/or allergies. Latex mattresses are more firm, more durable and more comfortable than any other kind of mattress.

Specialty Sleep – What It Is

Friday, February 20th, 2009

Bedding and mattress companies have begun offering specialty bedding. Specialty bedding promises to offer the best quality of sleep to those that try it. What is specialty sleep exactly?

By definition, specialty bedding refers to all of the sleep surfaces that use special support systems instead of a typical, conventional and traditional steel innerspring coil Specialty bedding is often referred to as “alternative” sleep surfaces as well.

Specialty mattresses look the same as traditional innerspring mattresses. These mattresses have been specially designed to even use conventional sheets, comforters and other bedding. Many people who use specialty mattresses prefer to use deep pocket sheet with these high profile beds. It can be hard to distinguish the difference between a traditional mattress and a specialty mattress at first glance.

However, it doesn’t take long to notice the difference once you lie on a specialty sleep mattress. Instead of using steel coils, specialty sleep mattress utilize more comfortable and supportive systems. Specialty sleep mattresses may include air mattresses, latex foam mattresses, memory foam mattresses, fluid suspension mattresses, responda-flex mattresses, adjusta-flex mattresses, and waterbeds.

These premium mattresses make sure that your entire body is positioned correctly while sleeping, as well as offer complete support to your entire body. Specialty sleep mattresses can be more expensive than regular innerspring mattresses, but they are definitely worth the cost. Instead of waking up each morning feeling achy and sore, you are sure to wake up feeling well-rested and refreshed after sleeping on a specialty sleep mattress.

If your sleep is lacking something, you need to try the specialty sleep experience. Once you do, there will be no more tossing and turning. There will be no more morning soreness. There will be no more unproductive and sleepy days. Specialty sleep is something that your life can’t go without.

A Brief History of the Mattress

What is the most important part of your bedding? Of course, your mattress. The average person spends over one-third of their lifetime sleeping. Can’t you see why it is so important to use a high quality mattress.

Mattresses come in a variety of sizes, textures, materials, etc. It isn’t very difficult to find a high quality mattress that will fit your individualized needs. In fact, it is easier and more cost effective now to get a good quality sleep.

It can be helpful to understand what our ancestors had to sleep on to really appreciate the quality of sleep that you get every night.

-Between 8,000 B.C. and 6,000 B.C., people moved from sleeping on the floor to sleeping on simple mattresses. These primitive mattresses were often made from leaves and grass and were held together by animal skin.
-The first water-bed was invented around 3,500 B.C. by the Persians. These mattresses were made from goatskins and were filled with water.
-Affluent Romans of the Roman Empire began to sleep on feather-filled mattresses around 200 B.C.
-Mattresses were filled with water, leaves, grass, hay, etc for several hundred years.
-Steel coils were patented in 1865 for the purpose of adding support to mattresses.
-A higher quality water-bed was introduced in 1873.
-The first box-spring mattress was invented during the late nineteenth century.
-Expensive latex mattresses were first introduced in 1929.
-The futon was introduced in North American during the 1940s.
-The first adjustable bed was invented in 1953.
-NASA created memory foam rubber during the 1970s.
-Air mattresses were introduced in the 1980s.
-Tempur-Pedic begins selling memory foam mattresses to the general public

Mattresses have come a long way since 8,000 B.C. Mattresses can be inexpensive and extremely comfortable now instead of being expensive and not comfortable at all.

A Mattress Far Superior Then A Four Seasons Mattress

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

Dear David:

Your service has been wonderful and this is my first experience in buying something this costly form someone I did not meet. I formally lived in Beverly Hills and sold my house to Mathew Perry of TV Friends and am used to good service. If you want to use me as a reference please feel free to do so.

The bed and latex mattress system are wonderful. We formally purchased a mattress that they use at the Four Seasons Hotel and this is far superior. You will be hearing from someone that I did suggest the bed to in the near future.

Again thanks and Happy New Year

Your Mattress is not only as good as Tempur Pedic I think it’s BETTER

Monday, February 2nd, 2009


I just wanted to say thank you, we received the mattress and are ecstatic with it! We replaced our Tempur-pedic mattress that had been damaged with the Sundance 10″ on our Tempurpedic adjustable base, and it works wonderfully.
I also wanted to let you know, that having slept on a Tempurpedic for a few years, that your mattress is not only “as good”, I think it’s BETTER.

Thank you for the excellent price, the fantastic friendly service, and shipping. But most of all, thank you for the GREAT mattress! I’ve slept wonderfully since receiving it.
