La-Z-Boy Revolutionizes Sofa Bed Comfort

MONROE, Mich., Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- La-Z-Boy, the nation's leading manufacturer of upholstered furniture, has revolutionized sofa bed comfort with another industry first -- the new La-Z-Boy(R) Slumber Air(TM) mattress system. It is a La-Z-Boy exclusive that ingeniously combines an air mattress with the Supreme Comfort Mattress by La-Z-Boy for luxurious support.

"The Slumber Air(TM) mattress system is going to change the way people think about sofa beds," said Greg White, vice president of merchandising for La-Z-Boy. "It's so comfortable that people might start encouraging their guests to sleep in the master bedroom, so they can have the sofa bed for themselves."

The one-of-a-kind system consists of a five-inch air mattress that rests on top of the five-inch Supreme Comfort Mattress to produce incredible comfort. Set-up is simple: a special valve on the air mattress, and an electric pump that comes with it, inflate or deflate easily in 45 seconds. Both mattresses are encased in ticking and are separated by a non-skid material so that the air mattress will not move once it is inflated.

Sofa beds are the perfect solution for those who want to offer their guests a place to sleep, but may not have the space for an extra bed. The Slumber Air(TM) system folds easily into the cavity of any La-Z-Boy queen size or full size sofa bed, as well as stationary and motion sectionals.

"Part of being a good host is giving your guests a comfortable place to sleep, which can sometimes be a challenge," said White. "The Slumber Air(TM) is the kind of innovation that comes from our commitment to listening to our customers and developing products that meet their needs."

Scheduled to begin appearing at retail this fall, the Slumber Air(TM) mattress system will be available through La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries(R) stores, La-Z-Boy In-Store Gallery dealers and anywhere genuine La-Z-Boy furniture is sold. Consumers can call 1-800-MAKE A HOME (1-800-625-3246) or visit to find the La-Z-Boy dealer nearest them.
