Natural Latex Mattress Or Air Bed…Which One?

If you've studied our beds deeply, you know that we use natural latex in one of our Air Bed models as well as well as in our 100% natural latex bed program. Many folks who come onto our site looking for natural latex mattresses, get onto our Air Bed page, and after much deliberation and several phone calls to our expert bedding sales staff, often select one of our Habitat Air Bed systems instead of a pure Natural Latex mattress.

You might ask, why would I buy an Air Bed over a Natural Latex mattress?..or vicey versey, so to speak...First of all, Air Bed wise, many of you already have done the leading brand's Sleep Number bed, didn't like it, want a really good quality Air Bed system, and opt to buy either our Arise, Aloft, or Ascend Air Bed System. You're going to get major bang for your buck, and you're getting a bed that is built from the ground up using individually sourced components, engineered to our ridiculously picky and annoying standards (we drive our manufacturers crazy, squeezing them to find the best components on the planet, but at the right price).

So if you're set on an Air Bed, the discussion is over there. What if you like the concept of an Air Bed, and it's independent adjustability  with our dual remote control system, but you also like the all natural, eco-friendly, greener design and extreme comfort factor offered by one of our Natural Latex beds? Answer: Since we build in the natural latex layer into our Ascend model, you're getting the wonderfully elastic, yet giving and yielding qualities of latex...but also with the tweakability factor to customize your bed with our air chamber system.

It's likely that you may find the bed less bouncy and springy, or responsive, as our Natural latex, since the natural latex is immersed a bit deeper under the quilted top. You get "nestling in" qualities in our Air Beds, with the 2" natural latex layer working in concert with other support foam layers including our memory foam layer in the Ascend model, but it provides more muted elasticity, so motion transfer is a bit more controlled, an important issue for some.

Also, our Air Bed is made from some man-made, though quite sophisticated materials...so, if you're trying to buy an all natural mattress, you probably need to consider our Natural Latex program.

With any of our Natural Latex mattress models, you are in close proximity with 100% pure latex rubber and the end result is a mattress that offers up a whole lot of effervescent personality. Our natural latex mattress also has more of a "drifting on calm waters" floating, buoyant feel, as one customer described it, but offers no way to change or adjust one side from the other.

Bottom line, if there are two of you and one likes firm, and the other like plush and softer, it's an obvious choice to opt for one of our Air Bed systems.

And again, if there are two of you and you can share similar qualities in a mattress, but you insist on a more lively, bouncier, springier feel, without the pillowtop "nestle factor", and you like the green, eco-friendly design, our Natural Latex mattress is totally up your alley. If you're still confused, give us a call and we can sort of "diagnose" your specific needs. Remember, we offer 3 models in our Natural Latex program, our firmer 6" model, and our slightly softer, but still supportive 8" model, or our plusher, more giving 9" model.

Air Beds That Offer Highest Owner Satisfaction According To Respected 3rd Party Source

Time for a new mattress?  Want to find a comfortable air bed? Need independent adjustability on both sides of your bed?  Maybe you are thinking about an adjustable air bed,but who wants to pay thousands for a quality air bed?  Don’t worry… You can get a high-end air bed for about half the price of many digital air beds that are out there. And, Habitat Furnishings Air Beds have the highest owner satisfaction rating of all adjustable air beds on the market today, according to SleepLikeTheDead.Com – Check it out:

At Habitat Furnishings, we spent two years designing our extremely comfortable, high quality air beds.  These three extraordinary beds are specially crafted to be extremely comfortable cost half the price of many other brands offering similar components and features.  Afraid you won’t like our air beds?  We want to make sure you do.  That’s why we offer a full 365 days for you to try our air bed in your own home.  If you don’t like it, you can return it and get your money back.

The three models we have designed have their own specialized features and benefits to offer, even though each model is built using our proprietary perimeter side rail foam system (which makes it easy to transfer in and out of bed, putting shoes on, etc.), our super quiet air controller and LED hardwired remote control.

Our Arise model is designed for those who prefer a firmer bed, are back sleepers, but still want some control on the degree of firmness from one side to the other.

 

Our Aloft model is designed to provide great support while offering pressure point reduction for those seeking a supportive surface, but who made also need added weight distribution and a more nestled in feel, without that sinking effect. Equipped with a layer of super premium 4lb. memory foam (not cheaper 2 or 3 lb. density, which simply doesn’t have the durability) along with a layer of our high resiliency support foam, it’s designed to provide optimal pressure point relief and float factor, with no sinking or digging your way out of the bed.

And finally, our biggest selling model, the Habitat Ascend Air Bed, offers both the pressure relieving qualities you get from our 4lb density super premium memory foam layer and the added benefit of the buoyant, uplifting qualities of pure natural latex. No sinking, no digging your way out of an abyss, but rather effortless turning, a sumptuous floating sensation, and excellent “fill-in” of pocketed areas like your lumbar region, between shoulder blades, and between hip and rib cage, when on your side.

All Natural Latex Mattresses: Natural vs. Synthetic

Thinking about a new mattress?  Maybe you are thinking about an all natural latex mattress.  Perhaps you have some questions about all natural latex mattresses and how they are made.  Are all latex mattresses in the marketplace completely and 100% all natural?  No, typically they are not.  Read on…

A completely all natural latex mattress is 100% botanically derived and contains nothing artificial.  It is extremely comfortable, antimicrobial, dust mite free,  and resists mold and mildew.  It’s not only great for those with allergies and asthma, but for anyone who wants a healthier sleeping environment free of allergens and chemicals.

Both natural and synthetic latex have very similar qualities, are non-toxic and will last equally as long, but if you prefer a plant based latex mattress, Habitat Furnishings offers a variety of mattresses made using botanical latex. If you prefer a synthetic latex bed, say for example if you have a know latex allergy, Habitat can build a custom mattress for you using synthetic latex as well, offering the same warranty, 365 day trial, and comfort level.

Habitat Furnishings, the web’s specialty bedding experts, sells only 100% botanically derived latex mattresses.  Check out our site to learn more about all natural latex mattresses and their benefits.


Air Beds: Try One for an Extended Period in Your Own Home

Is it time for a new mattress?  Tired of tossing and turning to get comfortable?  Tired of sleeping in that crater in the middle of your old inner spring mattress?  Perhaps you’re interested in air bed but you’re afraid you may not like it.  What happens then?  How do you know if an air bed is right for you?

The best way to find out if an air bed is right for you is to try one for an extended period in your own home.  We recommend at least 365 days.  Some manufacturers of digital air beds offer you a tight 30 days to try their air bed in your own home.  We do not feel this is an adequate amount of time to know if any type of mattress is right for you, let alone an air bed, which is usually a new experience for most people.  If you don’t like your new air bed, you need to be able to return it and get your money back.  Do not buy from a retailer that only offers store credit or a “comfort” guarantee (same thing as a store credit).

At Habitat Furnishings, we allow you to try our two high quality air beds in your own home for 365 days.  If our air bed doesn’t work for you, you can return it and get your money back.


All Natural Latex Mattresses: Find Your Perfect Natural Latex Mattress

Tire of tossing and turning?  Time for a new mattress?  Ready to try something more comfortable than your old inner spring mattress?  Perhaps you are thinking about an all natural latex mattress?  How can you find the all natural latex mattress that is right for you?

A 100% all natural latex mattress is extremely comfortable.  It’s also antimicrobial, resists mold and mildew, and is dust mite free.  It is free of any chemicals or synthetic fillers.  But beware of the imitators — up to 80% of latex mattresses being sold today are not all natural, but are made synthetically using petrochemicals.  Although they claim to be just like all natural latex mattresses, but cheaper, they are not.  Steer clear of any latex mattress that is not 100% botanically derived.

How do you find the all natural latex mattress that is right for you?  The only way to do this is to try it in your own home for an extended period.  We recommend 180 days or more.  If you don’t like it, you need to be able to return it and get your money back.  Do not accept a store credit or comfort guarantee (same thing as a store credit).  These can leave you out a lot of money and still without a mattress that you love.

At Habitat Furnishings, we are the web’s specialty bedding experts.  We offer detailed mattress information on our site.  Check out our air beds and our all natural latex mattresses.


Habitat Furnishings All Natural Latex Mattresses: Designed By Customers, Not Two Guys In A Starbucks..

Is it time for a new mattress?  Are you tired of tossing and turning or sleeping in a giant crater?  Maybe you want to sleep more soundly or in a healthier chemical-free environment.  Then it’s time to take a look at forgetting about a traditional inner spring mattress and checking out an all natural latex mattress.

An all natural latex mattress is hypoallergenic and extremely comfortable.  It’s dust mite free, antimicrobial, and resists mold and mildew.  It is 100% botanically derived and is free of formaldehyde based adhesives, mystery foam layers given esoteric names like “Dreamfoam” of Ultrafoam”, often found in many startup companies like Casper, Purple, Leesa, and others pitching beds made using urethane foams and other materials that continually off-gas fumes for the life of the mattress.

A latex mattress, whether natural or even the synthetic variety, which does not off gas VOC fumes, is an excellent alternative to the fume factories sold online and in stores that look fantastic, but typically collapse and form indentations, and just don’t last. Don’t get roped into buying a mattress for $700 that doesn’t have a lot of history and years of reviews to back them up. Many of these companies have only been around a year or two, and don’t have an established track record of durability. Habitat Furnishings has been around longer than many of these companies-combined. Since 1994, we have been building and improving upon all of our mattresses, based on customer feedback…which would you rather sleep on? A mattress two guys invented on a napkin in a Starbucks, or a mattress that has been crowdsourced and constantly tweaked through the years by using actual owner feedback?

Habitat Furnishings is the web’s specialty bedding site.  In addition to offering completely all natural latex mattresses, we also offer high quality, affordable air beds.


All Natural Latex Mattresses: Can a Latex Mattress be Certified Organic?

Looking for a new mattress?  Perhaps you are looking at all natural latex mattresses.  Maybe you are confused about the terms… Some manufacturers and retailers call their natural latex mattress “organic.”  Can a natural latex mattress be certified as organic?  If so, how is a latex mattress deemed “organic?”

Here’s the cold, hard truth on this one — If a mattress retailer calls their latex mattress “organic” they are just using the term on their own.  Unlike food, mattresses are not certified as organic and it’s unlikely that they ever will be.  What you should be looking for when choosing an all natural latex mattress is one that is 100% botanically derived and contains no synthetic fillers or chemicals.  Unfortunately, up to 80% of all latex mattresses on the market today are not all natural, but are made synthetically using petrochemicals.  These latex mattresses may use the word “natural” because they have some natural latex in them, but they are not all natural and 100% botanically derived.

At Habitat Furnishings, we are the web’s specialty bedding experts.  The all natural latex mattresses we sell are 100% all natural and contain absolutely nothing synthetic.  To learn the differences between synthetic latex mattresses and 100% natural latex mattresses, check out Habitat Furnishings.  We also offer exceptional quality air beds at half the price of “leading brand.”


Natural Latex Mattresses: How to Get Great Sleep and Help the Planet

Thinking about an all natural latex mattress?  Maybe you’ve heard how comfortable they are or how they are great for those with allergies or asthma.  Natural latex mattresses are chemical-free, but there’s one other thing an all natural latex mattress does… It is 100% recyclable and won’t fill our planet and landfills with garbage and chemicals.

A 100% all natural latex mattress is completely botanically derived and contains nothing artificial or synthetic.  It is antimicrobial, dust mite free, and reduces mold and mildew.  It’s not only great for those with allergies and asthma, but for those who want to sleep free of allergens and chemicals too.

An all natural latex mattress is very durable.  A quality one comes with a warranty of 20 years and can last 30 years or more.  And the save the planet part?  Once you are ready to replace it, your 100% all natural latex mattress is 100% recyclable.  There are no chemicals to dispose of and no trash to accumulate in the landfills.

At Habitat Furnishings we want you to learn the difference between synthetic latex mattresses (80% of latex mattresses being sold) and 100% all natural latex mattresses.  We do not want you to be fooled by the “pretenders.”  Check out our site to learn more about all natural latex mattresses.


A Natural Latex Mattress: The Only Choice if You Have Allergies

Do you need a new bed?  Have environmental allergies?  Then an all natural latex mattress is probably the best choice for you.  Read on to learn why.

An all natural latex mattress is extremely comfortable.  It’s also antimicrobial, dust mite free, and resists mold and mildew.  This is what makes it ideal for those with allergies and asthma.  It’s also great for those who want a cleaner, allergen-free, chemical-free sleeping environment.

In order to get these benefits, you have to make sure the latex mattress you are buying is 100% all natural latex.  Do not choose a latex mattress that is made synthetically using petrochemicals.  Since many of the synthetically made latex mattresses use the term “natural” to describe them (because they have some natural latex in them), you do have to be vigilant about what you are choosing.  Ask questions and make sure the all natural latex mattress you are buying contains absolutely nothing synthetic.  A synthetic latex mattress also has tendency to develop lumps and sags and it much less durable than a 100% all natural latex mattress.

At Habitat Furnishings, we are the web’s specialty bedding experts.  We offer air beds and 100% all natural latex mattresses.  To learn the difference between 100% all natural latex mattresses and latex mattresses that are made synthetically, check out our site.
