Hi Alan,

I changed the title and created a new thread to make it easier for others in your area to find this thread :)

You are fortunate in that there are several quality independent factory direct manufacturers near you. They are ...

foxmattress.com/ Holly Hill, FL. They are a local factory direct manufacturer that makes all types of mattresses. I have had some great conversations with Rick the owner and he is exceptionally helpful and knowledgeable. They are also a member here which means that I believe they compete well with the best in the industry in terms of their quality, value, service, and transparency. They would be well worth a drive to Holly Hill to include them in your research.

www.orlandomattresscompany.com/ and atlasmattressfactory.com/ Lake Hamilton, FL. They are local manufacturers who are working in partnership and make a range of good quality mattresses. They generally make commercial mattresses for hotels and cruise liners but they also sell direct to customers at the Atlas Mattress showroom. They make traditional mattresses (innerspring/polyfoam using a wide range of foam densities depending on budget), latex, memory foam, and microcoils and are transparent about the type and quality of the materials that they use. Both Orlando Mattress and Atlas Mattress can provide information about the materials inside any of their mattresses but at the Atlas Mattress Factory showroom their first language is Spanish so while they can certainly answer general questions ... for more technical questions it may be a good idea to call Orlando Mattress if you don't speak Spanish. They can also custom build.

denvermattress.furniturerow.com/dmc/ Daytona Beach, FL. Regional factory direct manufacturer who makes a wide range of traditional innerspring mattresses including some with latex in the comfort layers and their iChoice which is a mostly latex mattress with either a latex or memory foam topper. Some good quality and value.

www.originalmattress.com/locations Orlando, Ocoee, Kissimmee, Apopka, Lake Mary, FL. They are a regional factory direct that manufactures all types of mattresses. Their mattresses include a two sided latex hybrid and memory foam models as well as traditional innerspring mattresses. They have some good quality and good value choices.

www.relaxincomfort.com/ Winter Park, Sanford, The Villages, Windermere, FL. They carry Savvy Rest mattresses which are a line of high quality component latex mattresses that give you a choice between organic Dunlop and 100% natural Talalay latex but I would also make some careful value comparisons here because they are also in higher budget ranges than other similar mattresses.

www.ikea.com/us/en/ Orlando. See post #3 here for comments about their mattresses.

Hi Painintheback,

Unfortunately there are not a lot of independent factory direct manufacturers near you.

www.matterbrothersfurniture.com/ They make mattresses of all types.

www.verlo.com/ Independent manufacturer. Their website says that they do not have an outlet near you but if you look online (for example here find.mapmuse.com/map/verlo-mattress-factory-stores/27.9167,-83.6075,6 ) it seems there either is or was several near you. You may need to call the closest one to see if they are still in business there.

EDIT: I checked and there are no Verlo outlets anywhere in Florida. There is also now a more detailed list for the Port Charlotte, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Naples, FL. areas in post #2 here .

Other than these ... I'm not aware of any others near you however there is always the option of using local mattress outlets that are transparent about the layers of their mattresses (or that sell mattresses where the layering and materials are available online) to test mattresses that work for you in terms of pressure relief and spinal alignment and then to "duplicate" it through a high quality and high value manufacturer that sells online.

I would avoid any mattress that has more than an inch of polyfoam in the comfort layers (including any polyfoam in the quilting). This includes any so called bio friendly or "green" polyfoams which are just regular polyfoam where some of the oil based ingredients have been replaced with plant oils. There are some local manufacturers that use much higher quality polyfoams in their comfort layers and/or will make a 2 sided mattress where these lower quality will last longer for those that have a lower budget but you will not normally see this in any of the national brands.

Basically ... if you are considering a mattress with foam in the comfort layers, it should contain either good quality memory foam (for those that know for certain that they like this type of foam in spite of its disadvantages) or good quality latex foam (which is a much higher quality foam with many advantages over memory foam).

Thanks so much for this informative site and your thoughtful recommendations. We are on our way today up to Fox to begin the process of replacing our 10-year-old Kingsdown and feel much better informed for the search.
