What’s happening: Kingsdown Inc. is set to mark its debut at HD Expo in May with the introduction of two new mattress collections specifically designed to target the hospitality and luxury hospitality categories. It will unveil the Hospitality and Luxury Hospitality collections with a total of nine mattresses.
Why it matters: “We have recently seen a significant interest in our portfolio of mattresses for luxury and boutique properties, where they appreciate the quality and comfort a premium brand like ours can bring to the guest experience,” says Kingsdown President and CEO Frank Hood. “In addition to adding products, we have also hired a well-respected executive in this sector, Vince Nicholson. His understanding of the needs of hoteliers is already serving us well with the signing of several boutique hotels.”
Key features of the Kingsdown Hospitality Collection — made up of five models — include antimicrobial FR fiber, breathable knit fabric, gel foam, tri-tech gel-infused memory foam in the support layer (a comfort layer infused with copper, silver and graphite that aid in providing a cooling sleep), and twice tempered tri-zoned wrapped coils that contour to the body to provide customized support in three important zones.
The Luxury Hospitality Collection — made up of four models — incorporates the same key features but adds luxurious latex for pressure relief and conformity, a higher coil count support system, and motion separation foam that runs the center length of the mattress to act as a motion absorbing buffer.
All of Kingsdown’s new hospitality models underwent rigorous durability testing and all foams used in the making of the mattresses are CertiPUR-US certified — deeming the mattresses safe for sleepers. Additionally, the Kingsdown Group operates in accordance with the Mattress Recycling Council and the Forest Stewardship Council.
