Cadence Keen Introduces The Bed MadeEZ Bed Maker

By Brooke S. Pisarsky After more than twenty years of success in the hotel and cruise industry, Cadence Keen Innovations (CKI Solutions) is focusing on the mattress and bedding retail industry. The company is launching its newest prod- uct at the Winter Las Vegas Market: the Bed MadeEZ Bed Maker Kit. “For over two decades, CKI Solutions has focused on products that solve real problems and make life easier,” explained CEO Sam Montross. “Customers’ rave reviews and sig- nificant demand for the Bed MadeEZ initiat- ed our change in focus to the world of retail.” First launched in the hotel industry, the Bed MadeEZ Bed Maker proved to be a key factor in eliminating the issues housekeep- ers face when changing bedsheets, many of which also apply to consumers.

“Today’s mattresses can be very heavy,” Montross continued. “For many people, tuck- ing sheets while making their bed can be a real hassle. Our new consumer version of the patented Bed MadeEZ Bed Maker is the first product for consumers that takes the strain out of making a bed because it lifts and holds up the mattress in a raised position leaving hands free to change linens. Our narrow tip design allows the bed maker to tuck in sheets quickly and neatly and makes placing bed skirts on and removing sheets a much easier task.” CKI Solutions is offering two basic op- tions for the bed maker. With a suggested retail price of $15, the single BedMadeEZ Bed Maker can be displayed in the store on a hook card. Additionally, CKI Solutions also offers an eye-catching bed-making kit, which

retails for $40 and features two mattress lifters, a chic storage bag plus a unique item that makes it easy to put on pillow cases. In addition to the Bed MadeEZ Bed Mak-

er Kit, CKI Solutions will also spotlight its full line-up of innovative bedding accessories at the Winter Las Vegas Market. “We believe that these added-value bene- fits to the consumer offer a huge opportunity for mattress, bedding and home furnishings retailers,” said Steven Gordon, president of CKI Solutions. “Given the need for retailers to offer more choices, options and add-ons in today’s market, we offer the retailer a strong story. [Our bed maker kit] is everything a con- sumer needs to make a bed. And while it can be a high profit margin it also makes a unique promotional item.” Visit

Southerland Unveils Copper-Infused Ionic Sleep System

This new line features pillows, mattress protectors and sheets that are infused with copper ions, offering ben- efits ranging from odor control to improved hygiene and overall skin wellness. With copper ions woven directly into the cotton fabric, the Ionic Sleep System delivers a cool, comfortable and healthy sleeping en- vironment. In addition to offering antimicrobial properties, copper has been thought to bene- fit circulation, act as an anti-inflammatory and deliver anti-oxidant properties. Sleep products made using copper are said to offer a number of benefits, including odor control, improved

hygiene, improved skin texture, skin tone and overall skin wellness for the consumer. “This is the wonder fiber for sleep prod-

ucts,” said Bryan Smith, president and CEO of Southerland. “Copper has a great health-ben- efit story to it and studies have shown it helps remove toxins from the body. We’re bringing in fabrics with benefits for our sleep acces- sories line that complement our Ionic Sleep Systems mattress line, and we look forward to expanding the selection as new, more in- novative fibers continue to be developed.” The collection will feature four pillows made of latex and memory foam, one mat- tress protector and two sheet sets.
