Las Vegas - Addressing the growing market for adjustable bed bases, Seahawk Designs is introducing the Synergy Collection, a series of low-profile platform beds engineered to accommodate most of the adjustable beds on the market today.
Officials of the Riverside, Calif.-based producer, which showsin World Market Center B-970,said the new series features amplestorage in seven designer woodand upholstery finishes as well asmatching headboard options.
The Synergy Collection is offeredin five upholstery optionsas well as two wood finishes -Espresso and a lighter, weatheredDriftwood. Each piece can be soldalone or with a matching 60-inchheadboard.
"Continued feedback fromretailers really sparked the creationof the Synergy Collection," saidWilliam Jahn, CEO of SeahawkDesigns. "Consumers were lookingfor two things - a stylishfoundation for their adjustable bedand full storage capabilities. Thatsimply didn't exist until now. Betteryet, we've created a universal pieceof furniture engineered to workwith the most popular adjustable on the market."
He said retailers who have seenthe line believe the new pieces willmeet their customers' needs - andhelp them boost their sales tickets.
Jahn added: "Care has to betaken with bases that they do notexceed 30 inches in height, becauseat that height the consumer wouldneed a stepstool just to get intobed! It's impractical and makes thebed appear overly large. However,that's a common problem whenadding any foundation to an adjustablebase. Our design keeps themattress at standard bed height, sothat it's both elegant and practical."
The Synergy pieces feature asmuch storage capacity as a bedroomchest, with four 24-inch fullextension drawers that have touchlatch features, the company said.
