Air Bed Luxury

In The Luxury of Air Bed Mattresses, the writer discusses his first encounter with an air bed, which he slept on while visiting his sister’s house.  I am quite familiar with these portable type air beds.

I have an Aero Bed that I travel with (my two boys and I can all sleep on it at anyone’s house), and a portable bed with legs that I have used in my guest bedroom.  That portable bed unfolds out of its own case with wheels, but it isn’t very portable.  The case is huge.  It is good for keeping in a large storage area in your house and pulling it out when you have guests, but it is way to big to travel with.  I used to leave mine out and made up in the guest room just like a regular bed.  It is now in storage and a “real” bed with an actual bed frame and mattress has taken its place.

The writer mentions these types of air beds, as well as the old camping air mattresses of yesteryear.  He also mentions air beds that are used as one’s primary bed.  These air beds have come a long way in recent years.  We are proud to be at the forefront of the air bed market and want to share everything we know about air beds with our site visitors.  To learn more and check out our custom designed air beds, go to Habitat Furnishings.


Great Reasons an Air Mattress is a Great Buy

This blog is an example of what most people think about when they think of an air bed — a portable bed that you can take camping or pull out of a closet when you have guests.  Many people don’t know that air beds are actually one of the fastest growing segments of the specialty bed market.  More and more people are choosing air beds for their primary bed.

Why are more and more people choosing an air bed for their primary bed?  People choose air beds because they are adjustable and can be custom set from soft to firm as your needs or desires change (great for sleeping partners with different comfort needs).  An air mattress has flotation and buoyancy qualities that people love and they have a supportive feel without the “bottoming out” problems you find in a traditional mattress.  Bottom line:  Air beds offer comfort and qualities that a traditional mattress can’t match.  You can learn more about air beds by going to Habitat Furnishings.

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, go with our Air Bed instead of Natural Latex…the most commonly asked question, in a nutshell? 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 buy either our Arise 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, but 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 all botanical product is an issue, you need to consider our Natural Latex program. With both 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. So…if there are two of you and one likes firm, and the other like plush and softer, go with our Air Bed. 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 2 models in our Natural Latex program, our firmer 6″ model, and our slightly softer, cushier 8″ model.
