Bedding Industries of America (BIA) has added two new two-sided mattresses to its Ernest Hemingway collection. Part of the Artisan line, the new additions—the Ascension and the Extraordinaire—will be unveiled at the summer Las Vegas Market along with a new logo.
The hand lace-tufted mattresses are crafted using a combination of Tussah raw silk and 100% cotton imported Belgian damasks quilted to GOTS-certified, Organic New Zealand wool. They feature a layering of 100% natural latex foams on each side of the company’s proprietary lumbar zoned, four-inch, pocketed, coil-on-coil designs. The encased coils provide relief under the sleeper’s shoulders and extra support under their hips to better align with the natural shape of the body, aiding in a better sleeping experience. The mattresses are completed with an embroidered border featuring Ernest Hemingway’s signature along with the signature of the BIA artisan who crafted it.
“Since this collection is a step up from our other Hemingway mattresses, we decided that it warranted Ernest Hemingway’s signature on each of the beds in this particular collection,” said Stuart Carlitz, president and CEO of BIA. “When creating this collection, we tried to marry everything to provide an all-in-one, handcrafted mattress, which is also two-sided.”
