PILLOWTOP MAKES TRUMP CUSHY
The Donald Trump Organization has officially joined the bed wars. In conjunction with Sealy, it has developed the Trump by Stearns & Foster Plush Pillowtop, a mattress covered in a two-tone, off-white luxurious knit accented with gold piping. The custom, luxury bedding system will debut at the Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, a 92-floor skyscraper condo-hotel set to open next year.
The new bedding system, which also will be the exclusive sleep system at the Trump International Hotel & Tower Las Vegas opening this spring, aims to deliver the “highest level of service, style and exclusivity to our guests and residents,” says Jim Petrus, spokesman for Trump International Hotels.
Among the attributes of the special Trump by Stearns & Foster system:
Comfort layers of silk and wool, zoned convoluted foam, and “Flawless Foam.” These aim to provide support and resilience;
A Liquid Injected Foam Encased edge support system enveloping the innerspring to maximize the sleep surface and prolong mattress durability;
An UltraSteel boxspring for shock absorption and proper weight distribution.
“Every element of the Trump by Stearns & Foster Plush Pillowtop is designed to work in harmony to indulge guests with an ultra-luxury sleep experience,” says Mark Akerman, vice president of global contract sales & export for Sealy. Stearns & Foster is one of Sealy's key brands, along with Sealy, Sealy Posturepedic and Bassett.
