In the constant search to improve mattress design and functionality, we at Ideal try to listen to the market demand for a better sleep system that could be utilized by all categories of mattress manufacturers. The "Crown Top Mattress Cover" was created by Ideal to accommodate a wide variety of internal components and provide the consumer a unique functional multiple use mattress. The "Crown Top" Mattress is a multi sleep surface unit, with a removable top mattress that fastens on to either a single or dual zoned sleep surface(s). The crown top portion fastens to the base sleep units via a decorative laminate border that buttons down flat creating the look of a typical sleep unit. The fastening system securely hold all unit into place. Underneath the "Crown Top" is a secondary sleep surface that would allow the consumer to enjoy a good nights sleep. So in essence if you have guests spend the night you could remove the "Crown Top" for the guest bed, while still having the base unit for you own personal slumber.
The Unique feature of this construction is that it works with all internal components, Water, air, latex, viscose, and pocket coil units. Any one of these constructions will pass the 1633 requirements easily. There are no exposed zippers, but you have easy access to the inner chambers. The design would allow you to have a common base with multiple tops to create a diverse lineup while reducing inventory. In the case of a comfort guarantee, what could be easier than just sending the customer a new top portion or internal component, no need to send back the entire unit. All top units are interchangeable. Think of the possibilities, one base unit with multiple tops to create an entire line, customers could upgrade the mattress by purchasing a new top only, you could even accommodate new technology that wasn't available at the time of purchase. The "Crown Top" design is only available from Ideal. For more information contact us at Sales@idealquilting.com or visit our website http://www.idealquilting.com

Sleep King also introduced several lines unique to the market. Their new Lloyd and Penfield line featured 4 new beds: ``Kultur``, ``Pavilion``, ``Freemont``, and ``Scala``. These box top mattresses are the first to incorporate the axiom class centered panel quilting only available from Ideal. Part of a symmetrical line, these mattresses are the future of sleep vision and comfort. Centered border and centered panels, along with decorative trims put these units in a class by themselves. Kudos to the other models introduced by Sleep King, featuring new colors and new quilt designs. This years line is a refreshing change from the sea of ``blah``seen over and over again on today`s retail floors. For more information on the Therapedic line, visit their website:

Ever wonder where and how designs are conceived? Well it starts with a simplistic vision. Remember when you were a young child lying in the grass on a summer's day looking up at the clouds and imagining what they look like ( "a car", "a lion's head", "a dragon", etc....), thus began the rudimentary vision of design at it's most primitive state. Ever listen to music and transform the sound into images in full vivid color " Plasticine People and Marshmallow Skies" and it inspires you?. There is a skill and foresight of looking at the ordinary and finding it possesses you to envision, draw, create, or invent new ways of achieving new functional concepts that could revolutionize future trends.

The Axiom Quilting Machine allows us to have more control of quilting pattern designs. Cluster patterns are a unique technique of grouping or "clustering" shape to create a centered panel look. Ideal originally conceived the concept on the Paragon Multi-needle Quilting machine, even though this worked we were limited by needle distance, fixed needle bar spacing, and software limitations. Once we challenged the Axiom with this type of design we found that we had a lot more freedom and could efficiently control the sewing time of the output. Through a function called "looping" we could also simulate centered panel patterns without having to design a different program for each mattress size. These patterns look great in the mattress panel, but are equally appealing in centered border. But let's save that for another blog. Ideal has created several 'cluster pattern" templates that will make product that standout in the sea of product on the showroom floor. Ideal mindset and drive is to innovate and not duplicate. We are always on the quest to turn the impossible into the possible. Stay tuned to this blog, as this is where we will announce and discuss new idea's and innovations and concepts for the mattress industry. Ideal's new website will launch in a few weeks, so be sure to visit us. www.idealquilting.com

At "Ideal" not only do we believe in investing in technology, but we embrace and expect to test the limits of technology. One of our recent acquisitions is the Axiom quilter from Gribetz International. Even though the Axiom can be used for traditional quilting, we have spent the last 12 months pushing the envelope of the design software and the machinery to see how we can utilize to make unique and innovative products for the market. And did we ever, over a thousand new pattern designs were tested from the subdued to the intricate. Centered panels, Centered Borders, Zoned Panels, Dual Pattern Channels, and Optical Designs, all made to function in a practical manufacturing environment. We are still creating new designs and could create the one of design for your mattress line. If you can imagine it, "Ideal" can create it.
