Leather Italia unveiled exclusive MoSleep

HIGH POINT — At the recent High Point Market, leather upholstery supplier Leather Italia USA unveiled MoSleep, a power motion sofa sleeper unlike any other motion product in its line.

Offered exclusively by the Leland, N.C.-based supplier, the MoSleep is a power motion sofa that can recline to 180 degrees for a fully flat sleeping surface, unlike most lay-flat mechanisms that recline to 170 degrees, offered by Leather Italia and other suppliers.

“We feel confident in the uniqueness of the MoSleep system in the (U.S.) market. Our research has not uncovered another product like this that offers a fully flat mechanism in a power motion leather sofa,” said Mike Campbell, CEO of Leather Italia. “We know that power motion is the driver and we have seen demand for a leather sleeper. The 180-degree lay flat makes it even more special.”

The MoSleep power sleeper has two motors for independent recline operation of the seat back and footrest. Offered in a contemporary style with leather vinyl match in two sizes, it retails for $1,199-$1,299 in the sofa size.

The two-over-two sofa measures 82 inches long and converts to a bed with sleep area of 58 by 71 inches, which is comparable to a queen size mattress. The oversized chair-and-a-half size measures 45 inches long and converts to a sleep area of 26 by 71 inches.

The patent-pending MoSleep mechanism features a support bar with a U-shaped design around the moving parts of the mechanism. When the seat is fully reclined, the support bar rotates up into a position to provide support and stability.

MoSleep has a 300-pound weight capacity per seat and is constructed of hardwood frames with reinforcing metal brackets at the joints, sinuous wire seating suspension, 56 pocketed coils per seat cushion with muslin wrapped blown fiber back cushions.
