A good nights sleep is an absolute essential to our health

With a good nights sleep being an absolute essential to our health it’s no wonder everyone in the mattress industry continues to come up with innovative mattress designs that are meant to provide you with a better night’s rest.

For many years mattress manufacturers have been reinventing our sleeping surfaces with different materials for the tried and true inner spring mattress design. Then came the revolution of memory foam for mattresses. All of them garnered their share of followers and devotees and found themselves inside the sleeping quarters of homes across the nation. Some of the designs provided more support and comfort than others but all contain many chemicals. To achieve the ultimate sleep system, it is essential that the mattress be both comfortable, supportive and free of toxins and chemicals. Given the choices of mattresses available and their potential chemical hazards, most people ask “Is the comfort and support factor more important than the healthy clean sleeping factor?” For some this may seem a difficult question but I think the honest to goodness true answer is both. No compromises to either are necessary.

You might be wondering to yourself, “Is there a mattress that can be both comfortable and supportive while at the same time remain healthy, organic and an environmentally green choice?” You bet  there is! The good people at Dormio Organic Beds have been hard at work tackling what was once a contradiction in the industry. Here we have created the solution and are offering it up in a range of options. The Dual Support Natural Latex Foam Mattresses are supportive, comfortable and free from chemicals and toxins.

Now to explain further we will answer the question that many ask. “What is a latex mattress and what makes it so comfortable and supportive?

Natural latex foam is an extremely environmentally friendly material made with the hevea milk from the rubber tree. Hevea milk is the “milky” tree sap from a rubber tree. It’s extracted in the same manner as maple syrup from maple trees here in Canada. It is a highly renewable resource. Natural latex foam is a long lasting material and the latex foam mattresses we offer are made using 100 percent Dunlop latex and come with a twenty year warranty.

Latex mattresses are not a brand new invention. They have made a resurgence in popularity as a new generation has now discovered them and here’s why:

Latex is a true green product and stays naturally clean.

Latex is durable and always bounces back quickly to its original form, providing you with continual support as you move.

Latex’s exceptionally long life span means less environmental impact. Longer lasting products equals fewer transportation and manufacturing impacts on our environment

Latex is able to immediately conform to your body shape without having to wait until it has been softened up by your body heat to conform, such as the case in chemical based memory foams. This reduces pressure points and tossing and turning throughout the night.

Latex doesn’t transfer motion. You and your partner will not be disturbed by each others movements.

Latex is breathable and natural.  Latex’s tiny holes enable it to both expand and contract with your movements, keeping you at a more constant and comfortable temperature.

Dormio has designed and displays the most complete line of latex mattresses available anywhere in Canada.

All crafted in Canada, the Dormio mattress collections are designed for supreme comfort. Not just for today and tommorow but for many, many years.

All of the Dormio mattresses have zippered covers. This means you can open up the casing and re-arrange the layers to change the feel and support of your mattress. Since latex mattresses outlast all other types, we believe this to be a key factor when deciding which mattress to buy. Buy it for today because it feels right, but also buy it for the future because the mattress can be changed as you and your needs change.

In addition to natural latex, we make extensive use of organic wool. Organic wool is crucial, as this allows us to avoid the application of hazardous chemicals such as fire retardants. Wool is a natural flame extinguisher and it meets fire regulations naturally.  Wool also gives and added layer of “plushness” and controls the temperature in our beds. All the wool we use is completely organic.

Natural latex, paired with organic wool is the ultimate in sleep comfort. You have the choice to modify the feel of your mattress anytime as your needs change. Oh and did we mention that the majority of our mattresses offer dual zoned comfort? The mattress can be made to feel the same on both sides but it can also be customized by each side to meet your requirements. Make the left side a bit firmer than the right if you need.

Our many years of experience and our many happy clientele let us know that the Dormio line up is the best on the market. Contact us by phone or come by and visit us at one of our three Greater Toronto Area Showrooms.

Sleep Healthy

Is it time for a new pillow?

Waking up with a tight, stiff or achy neck even after a full nights sleep?  Do you suffer from allergy symptoms such as a runny nose, red, itchy eyes?  It could be time to consider a new organic or natural pillow.

Feather filled pillows can contribute to allergy symptoms unless the feathers have been thoroughly cleaned by having all the dander and microbes washed out?  These feather filled pillows are susceptible to hosting large populations of dust mites.  This requires a strict and routine cleaning schedule, often involving professional dry cleaning.

A perfect complement to your luxury bed or luxury mattress is an organic wool pillow with an organic cotton cover which not only stays naturally clean, but it is also hypoallergenic and antimicrobial. Mould and mildew cannot exist in this environment because there is no moisture retention. Wool will naturally expel moisture during your sleep.

If you like the feeling of a pillow with feathers because you can bunch it up to suit your sleeping position, then try a shredded latex pillow.  It offers you a similar consistency and possesses the same hypoallergenic benefits of an organic wool pillow.  Dormio’s premium organic shredded latex pillow have a removable organic cotton cover to facilitate ease of cleaning further helping you to maintain a healthy sleep environment.

See the following additional tips for choosing the right pillow.

Choose pillows that are:

Designed to assist the spine in keeping a natural alignment.

Designed with the ability to be fluffed so as to fit the specific contours, shape, and sleeping position of the user.

Designed to support different sleeping positions: Back sleeper, side sleeper, stomach sleeper.

Designed to cradle and support the head.

Designed to allow facial air circulation.
