Beth English and I spent four days touring Winter Las Vegas Market last week. Scroll down to see a gallery of product images that we took, from creative angles. In the closeups, you’ll get an idea of some of the detailing that went into the latest crop of mattresses from a number of vendors.
There’s an entire market report coming your way in the April issues of BedTimes and Sleep Savvy magazines. We’ll be sure to highlight a couple of new product themes and provide some details on new collections, new showrooms and sleep accessories, too. (As for mattress trends, how about lots of hybrid introductions that had intricate, quilted knit tops covered in comfy gray knit sweatshirt material and zig-zagging panel stripes?)
The sun shone brightly every day. It was the best weather ever at a Winter Las Vegas Market. But Beth and I faithfully sacrificed all of our daytime hours patrolling the windowless halls of the cavernous World Market Center, testing multitudes of new mattress models. (Then, we tossed and turned each night in our respective hotel rooms. It was total circadian confusion.) Ah, the irony of it all! But we have lived to tell our tale–which will come your way soon.
Right now, you can check out some of the new beds and power bases that we saw below. Also, see more products and showroom videos at the publications’ joint Instagram account: @BedTimesSleepSavvy. If you’re a Twitter devotee, we’ve also cross-posted on Twitter, @SleepSavvymag. Don’t forget to follow us!
