(1) FASHION BED GROUP® GIVES ITS ADJUSTABLES LINE A LIFT
Design Updates Focus on Features and Value
CHICAGO, Ill., December 16, 2016 – Who says you can’t get more for less? That’s exactly what Fashion Bed Group® (FBG) plans to deliver to Winter Market-goers this January in Las Vegas. The industry’s premier provider of bedding accessory products has completely revamped its line of adjustable bases to provide its customers and their consumers with even more features, benefits and value.
“We’ve taken our adjustables line to a whole new level,” explained Rob O’Neill, vice president of product development for Fashion Bed Group. “We’ve re-designed our entire selection to better cater to today’s design tastes and have made feature upgrades across the portfolio. At the same time, we’ve focused our pricing on delivering the best possible values.”
S-Cape Series Upgrades
The highlight of the new line-up is the expansion of the company’s flagship S-Cape Series. Offered in three designs – available in foundation and furniture styles – all of the S-Cape models now come standard with:
- Upgraded back-lit wireless remote that stands on its own and includes features like zero gravity, two programmable positions, a snore button and a flat button
- Easy wireless syncing
- Dual full-body massage with wave
- Under-bed lighting
- Adjustable height legs
In addition to these features, the S-Cape 2.0+ also includes an app and four-port USB hub on each side of the base capable of charging up to eight devices at once. The app is available as an option with the other S-Cape models. S-Cape models are priced to retail starting at approximately $1,199.
Value-Driven Opening Offerings
FBG has also re-designed its opening price point offerings to be more value-driven, starting with models such as the new Raven, which comes with a wireless remote and features an attractive suggested retail price of $699. Additionally, the popular Falcon has been upgraded to the Falcon 2.0+ and now includes a full suite of features such as adjustable-height legs, under-bed lighting and a new wireless remote design with more options. The Falcon 2.0+ is priced to retail at approximately $849.
In addition to these enhancements, all of FBG’s adjustable bases now come with the company’s proprietary MicroHook™ mattress-retention system, which effectively eliminates the need for an unsightly retainer bar at the end of a bed. The revolutionary gripping application keeps the mattress from sliding off the base and presents a sleeker, more appealing overall profile.
“As the industry leader in adjustable bases, we continually strive to elevate the category through innovation and reinvention,” added O’Neill. “We approached this line refresh with a keen focus on delivering attractive, attainable designs loaded with thoughtful standard features that respond to the needs of today’s consumers.”
FBG maintains a robust inventory of all of its adjustable bases and can readily accommodate quick ship requests. Additionally, the company offers the best warranty in the industry along with a renowned customer service team.
All of Fashion Bed Group’s latest product offerings will be on display in the company’s Las Vegas showroom (Space #B1326) during Winter Market. For more information, visit www.fashionbedgroup.com.
