Independent mattress manufacturer Southerland announced it will introduce its newly revamped Evolution Collection at the Winter Las Vegas Market.
The next generation line, called Evolution NXT, is a luxury assortment with enhanced aesthetics. It’s also the first time Southerland will introduce a tufted bed program, which not only enhances the aesthetic but also provides additional zoned support.
Evolution NXT includes a more elevated style of quilted side panel, which gives it a distinct look that separates it from the pack. The line features an 1130 perimeter active edge five-zone support system, with profiles that range from 14.5-inches to 16-inches. The ticking includes thermo balanced cooling properties for a more comfortable sleep. Luxury foams include copper-infused viscos and copper-infused Talalay latex throughout the line.
“The relaunch of the Evolution NXT Collection offers our retail partners the opportunity to expand their assortment with an exclusive brand that appeals to a luxury consumer,” said Bryan Smith, president and chief executive officer of Southerland. “This is the first time we are offering a tufted program, which is recognized as a symbol of elegance and gives our retailer partners a springboard to introduce consumers to the new enhanced aesthetic. It’s a luxurious look and feel for their discerning consumer.”
The five-model line includes the Evolution NXT 2000, the Evolution NXT 3000 and the Evolution NXT 4000, and offers a choice of comfort feels in plush and firm. The Evolution NXT 4000 is a tufted model. The Evolution NXT 5000 is also a tufted model and is available in plush. All the beds are quilted and offer a more contemporary look with a traditional flair that appeals to today’s luxury consumer. The collection provides retailers with tremendous margin opportunities at affordable luxury price points. Prices range from $2,000 – $4,000 in queen.
Among the other offerings showcased at market will be the American Sleep line, which includes hybrids and two-sided mattresses, and the successful Signature Hybrid and ThermoBalance® collections, which are made with premium materials such as copper-infused latex, gel-infused memory foam and temperature-regulating technologies that promote better sleep health. Also on display will be Southerland’s adjustable bed bases, including its one-piece king.
