More than 90 years after the flagship brand was first introduced, Spring Air is debuting a completely redesigned Back Supporter line. The new seven-bed collection maintains the brand’s signature zoned support, delivering hip and shoulder comfort along with less partner disturbance, but now features a stylish new white- and charcoal-hued look. Additionally, the collection is the company’s first truly national line-up, with every licensee be producing it. This creates a greater sense of consistency across the brand to eliminate any confusion among consumers. With this reinvigorated Back Supporter line, Spring Air has breathed new life into a classic offering.
ReST has introduced a new standard in comfort testing with its RISE diagnostic system. Designed for easy in-store demonstration, the system makes it easy for RSAs to match their customers to their ideal bed. RISE not only factors in the customer’s chosen comfort preferences and support needs, but actively adjusts in real time when they lay down on the bed— simulating different firmness and support levels. In addition to improving customer satisfaction and reducing return rates, the RISE was designed to help increase ticket averages as well. The system also allows retailers to customize the recommended results based on their store’s product assortment. And while some diagnostic stations can take up valuable space on the showroom floor, RISE incorporates the brand’s ReST Bed into the system: a high-end mattress that can be sold with a luxury price-tag.
Gaining popularity among retailers, Brooklyn Bedding has added several key wholesale accounts in recent months while launching a number of popular, niche sleep solutions under its private label arm. In order to meet increased demands for its products and streamline its manufacturing process, Brooklyn Bedding recently signed a lease to take over a 150,000-square-foot space. Enabling the brand to produce twice as many mattresses per day, the move not only expands the brand’s capabilities for its own brick and mortar locations and ecommerce business, but it makes Brooklyn Bedding an even stronger partner for its retailers.

Before developing its new Retail Edge marketing program, Tempur Sealy invested in a two-year, in-depth market research study. Surveying over 15,000 consumers and reviewing more than 20 million data points, the company gathered valuable information about how complicated the mattress purchase journey can be—and why many shoppers do not complete it. Retail Edge was designed to help retailers deliver a more connected and personalized experience that closely aligns with how consumers shop and buy today. Understanding that the mattress conversation is happening in new places across multiple platforms, the program first provides retailers with a 360-degree health check— then offers comprehensive resources including RSA training, digital, in-store and product assortment solutions.
