Spring Air opening Atlanta showroom in January
David Perry -- Furniture Today, December 28, 2010
Spring Air's Southeast licensee, which operates facilities in Cameron, S.C., and Atlanta, will show its Spring Air, Nature's Rest and Chattam & Wells lines. It will also show The Bed Boss Collection of memory foam beds and a three-bed line of memory foam beds made in the United States. The company will also show adjustable beds by Leggett & Platt.
The showroom will be open during the January Atlanta International Home Furnishings, Area Rug and Gift Market in space 5-F-1 of Building 1. The market runs Jan. 13-16.
Wes Price, president of Spring Air South, said it makes sense for his company and the bedding industry to be in Atlanta.
"Many of the buyers for larger regional, national and big box companies come to this market, and these same buyers also make the purchasing decisions on mattresses for their companies," said Price. "We want to bring bedding back to Atlanta, and the best vehicle for this is to show at AmericasMart, which is the most central location for the eastern half of the U.S."
"As floors 3-6 in Building 1 - the destination for everything home - evolve, we are staying ahead of the game and focusing and expanding on complementary home products in the area rug product center," said Chas Sydney, senior vice president of area rugs for AmericasMart. "With its strength, buyer loyalty and industry-wide recognition, Spring Air is the ideal fit to help pioneer this new category for AmericasMart."
