Little Canada-based Slumberland is the first furniture retailer in the country to sell a bed that's Wi-Fi- and Bluetooth-enabled, the Business Journal reports.
Slumberland is carrying Reverie 7S, which runs about $1,700 for a queen-size, at seven of its 126 stores, including one in Maplewood. During a six-week trial period, 19 of the high-tech beds sold.
It features a built-in alarm clock, dozens of head or feet positions, and massage functions, according to the Star Tribune. The wireless connections allow users to control the bed’s adjustable base and other compatible electronics with their smartphone or tablet.
“A lot of people go home and are sitting up in their bed with their laptop and they’re doing work on there,” Slumberland spokeswoman Carlynn Felipe told the newspaper. “It becomes way more difficult when their bed is not Wi-Fi-ready.”
