Mattresses: Famous Foam is famous for mattresses! Our solid foam mattresses are hand made to customer requirements using high quality foam components in a custom configuration to match each customer’s unique needs for support, comfort, and value. Available in standard mattress sizes or custom sized at no additional charge. Just try getting a custom sized mattress at a conventional mattress store– they’ll probably send you to Famous Foam!

Our current hot seller is the 100% pure Latex foam mattress. We offer a variety of support options from soft to extra firm in these wonderfully luxurious and popular beds.

Our own version of the popular memory foam mattress (now being mass merchandised on what seems like every street corner), is a high quality quilted masterpiece that we sell at a fraction of the price of the other guys.

Futons: Our futon mattresses are not the uncomfortable lump of cotton of the 1980's and ‘90s. Using unique combinations of cotton and high density foam layers, (some of our futons even incorporate memory foam layers), these are truly comfortable options for those cutomers looking for a comfortable futon. We are so comfortable selling these, that we offer a 10 year NON PRORATED warranty for compression.

Our sustainably grown hardwood futon frames incorporate a unique front opening system for ease of operation and come with a lifetime warranty direct from the manufacturer. We especially love the fit and finish on these frames truly making them a furniture piece you’ll be proud to have in the living room!

Cushions: Sofa or chair cushions letting you down? Step up to the comfort of high density cushion inserts! Just bring in those broken down squishy cushions and Famous Foam will cut, wrap and restuff them at a mere fraction of the cost of reupholstery!

Custom Sewing: Our expert seamstress takes fabric (yours or ours), thread and zipper and makes absolute magic! You will not believe the sparkle that a new cushion will give that window seat, wicker furniture, or wherever you need a custom cushion!

Foam cut to size: From super soft to XXX-Firm we supply foam for all cushioning needs! We stock foam for a quarter inch thick to 6" thick and can cut whatever width and length you need, most times while you’re in the store! Need egg crate foam? We stock it in a variety of densities and sizes, and will cut it to your specifications at no extra charge! We also stock a variety of bolsters and wedge shapes for those special projects. Noise problems? Acoustical foam panels may be the answer– tell us about your situation, and we’ll see if these can help.

Thank God you are still around

A few years back I had a puppy in an apartment who rarely had the opportunity to run freely until I got home from a long day at the office. Well, one day I was running late for work and couldn't take him for his little ""session"" which proved to be the worst day for the newly purchsed sofa. I saw this place in Berkeley that I remembered as I was flee marketing. I called and inquired. The service was great. The foam was replaced for both sides L/R of the love seat sofa so that they were an exact match. Actually they were better quality than before.....I don't have a pet now but I did purchase a new sofa that has now within the past year lost it's memory. I looked online to find that Famous Foam Facotry is still around .........and I still got that great over the phone customer service. I will be replacing a sectional at their advice a section at a time so's I'll have part of it to sit on while the other section is having the ""memory"" restored......THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fix Sagging Sofa

I needed foam to fill the underside cavity of a sofa (plywood would be attached to sofa bottom to hold & provide support for the foam). The salesman offered ideas & options for the foam type & price. He cut the foam to my measurements & the job turned-out well. Thank you for offering the 20% off sale.

Helped me figure out what I needed

I went into Famous Foam looking for foam for a padded headboard. I kinda knew what I wanted, but wasn't really sure how to go about it.

The guy who helped me knew a *lot* about foam, and helped me pick out something that would work, mostly by asking me questions about my project and telling me how different foam materials would work.

When I had decided on an option, he quoted a very reasonable price, made sure I knew what kind of adhesive to use to stick it to the plywood backing and told me best tips for how to cut it to size.

Well, the tips worked great and we made the headboard right the first time. We love it, and the tips really helped.

Without his experience, we could have made expensive mistakes, so I appreciate his expertise. It worked for us.

Great sevice, very quick

When our dog ate up couch cushion I needed to find replacement foam quickly. A house guest was scheduled to sleep on said couch in a few days. I was in and out of Famous Foam Factory in less than and hour with the foam I needed cut to size at a reasonable price.
