About Malouf

Sam and Kacie Malouf transformed a two-person operation into a company with over 11,000 product choices. In their journey, Sam and Kacie found a common thread tying consumers together—desire for comfort, identity, and value.

They’ve explored the globe, hunting for artisanal bedding honed through generations of practice in Italy, France, and Egypt. They’ve refined modern products, infusing unique foams with natural materials, and improving the features and usability of adjustable bed bases. The result is an ode to time-tested materials fused with the freshness of cutting-edge technologies.

N50 Folding in Half


The lowest-end model in the Structures collection by Malouf is the N50 Adjustable Base. It's the most basic build that Malouf offers in an adjustable base. This base features an independent head incline only, giving you the ability to sit up and watch TV or comfortably read a book.

The only function that this base offers it to lift the head section of your bed. Some benefits of keeping your head inclined are reduced snoring and acid reflux prevention. This base will also offer decent comfort for those who like to sleep with their head inclined up from their bodies.

I really don't recommend the N50 adjustable base to anyone. It's not very durable with its basic construction and limited 5-year warranty. This base would do well in the short term for someone who is recuperating from an illness. If you're searching for a long-term base to enhance your comfort then I suggest you look at a different model. The E455 or the M555 would work better for you.
