Eclipse International Launches “Bliss in a Box”
Mattress manufacturer Eclipse International recently introduced Bliss in a Box, for the first time developing a Talalay latex boxed bed at a $1,399 retail price point in a queen mattress.
Bliss in a Box provides three inches of high-quality, eco-friendly Talalay latex atop a 7-inch, 2.4 pound density polyurethane core allowing the brand the ability to provide the product at a previously unreached low price point. The mattress builds on the continued success of the Talalay Bliss line.
“Until now, quality Talalay latex mattresses were largely absent from the boxed bed business, and we are changing that with an innovative product at a very affordable price. Talalay latex is among the most expensive components used in mattresses today. Some of the best mattresses in the industry use either one inch or two inches of latex, and we stepped up to a full three inches of Talalay, the gold standard in the industry,” said Stuart Carlitz, president and CEO of Eclipse. “We see more and more opportunity in the bed-in-a-box business, and Bliss in a Box gives our retail partners the ability to either stock the beds in their warehouse for easy cash and carry or Eclipse International will ship the beds directly to consumers. The boxed bed also gives us the ability to target a wider demographic, including younger consumers who are looking for convenience without sacrificing quality. The success of the Pure Talalay Bliss and Talalay Bliss lines show the need for latex in a boxed bed and we’re pleased to be able to offer our retailers and consumers a high-quality affordable option.”In addition to the Talalay, the mattress features a Quilflex and Tencel cover that is soft, breathable and health-conscious to help protect against allergens. Packaged in a signature Talalay red box, the mattress can be shipped directly to consumers.
Bliss in a Box is designed to appeal to younger consumers who are interested in investing in Talalay latex but want the convenience of front door delivery and a lower price point.
