Whether you spend your hard-working day on the run or sitting too long, whether you're chasing toddlers or racquet ball, chances are, you could end the day with a backache. Here's where a waterbed can help! In a recent survey conducted by National Family Opinion Polls, back trouble was the most common reason why people bought their first waterbed. Why?

Seniors Find Waterbeds Give a "New Lease on Life"

As time goes by, most of us find it more and more difficult to get really comfortable at night and sleep soundly. Many older people feel they "just can't fall asleep in a strange bed." Truth is, many have trouble sleeping even in their own beds. A waterbed can offer them a better night's sleep than they've had in decades.

The waterbed treats older bodies gently, giving soothing support without hardness. The therapeutic benefits of flotation sleep have given many seniors "a new lease on life" by soothing tired muscles and providing sound sleep for regeneration.

Adult Beds

Relief from aching joints and morning stiffness is one of the most dramatic benefits a waterbed provides. With arthritis the most common complaint of older people, a waterbed can be a sensible investment in adding years of restful sleep. Since heat and rest, along with aspirins and exercise, are the most commonly recommended treatments, a heated waterbed offers welcome relief from stiffness and pain. Many arthritis suffers also enjoy the gentle way a waterbed cradles their aching joints and gives even, comfortable support "like sleeping on a cloud!"

Why Not Take A "Test Rest?"

We invite you lie down on a water mattress and see for yourself what total comfort feels like.

Futons are real beds! Unlike old-fashioned sofa beds with thin pads and metal bars, a futon mattress offers true comfort for a great night's sleep.


Whether for a den, home office, spare room, or anywhere in the house, space-saving futons convert easily from sofa to bed. Many can be positioned as a chaise lounge too.


Surprisingly so, futon furniture is often half the price of a traditional sofa-sleeper, and offers twice the comfort.


From classic to contemporary, futon frames are designed of wood or metal in a myriad of furnishing styles to create rooms as individual as you are.


Redecorating has never been so simple! Futon covers come in a wide variety of fabrics, prints, and colors... just change the cover for a whole new look.
