1. Eclipse International
Looking to create a higher margin bed-in-a-box option for retailers, Eclipse International’s new Sol line-up features ultra-premium components and a more resilient feel. Priced to retail from $999 to $1,999, each mattress is dressed in an upscale all-black knit cover and is available in firm, plus and euro-top designs. By enhancing the quality, look and feel of many boxed bed options, Eclipse’s new Sol collection gives retailers a valuable opportunity to capitalize on this growing trend while maximizing their delivery options.
Building on momentum from its retail partners, Kingsdown is continuing its rollout of its Body Science Technology. Supported by an in-store kiosk, Body Science guides consumers through a series of questions about body type and sleep styles. Once the survey is complete, the kiosk makes a mattress recommendation based on the company’s comprehensive alignment system. Combining extensive scientific research and testing with an unparalleled amount of consumer data, this unique approach to selling sleep products makes it easy for retailers to determine which mattress will deliver the best sleep experience for their customers.
3. Responsive Surface Technology (ReST)
Combining advanced technology with a compelling performance story, the ReST Bed was designed to help athletes sleep better and recover faster. Using a patented smart fabric to continuously monitor changes in pressure, the mattress automatically adjusts its five zoned air chambers to accommodate the sleeper’s unique comfort and support needs. In addition to offering an innovative premium product, ReST provides retailers with geographical exclusivity and valuable selling opportunities through its partnership with the Ironman Triathlon.
Expanding upon the success of its cooling SUB-0°line, PureCare recently unveiled its new seven-pillow Body Chemistry collection. In addition to offering the same latex, memory foam, gel and down pillow constructions as the SUB-0 pillows, the new Body Chemistry line features Celliant-infused covers. This unique fiber material has been proven to promote a better night’s sleep by increasing blood flow, improving recovery time and helping the body regulate its temperature throughout the night. With the addition of this new line, PureCare equips retailers with a wide range of comfort feels and the choice of either a cooling or recovery story.

Ranging from $1,499 to $1,999 at retail, the Therm-A-Sense provides an advanced cooling story at an approachable price point.
