Salamander Adds Memory Foam for Extra Comfort to All Premium Home Theater Seating

Memory Foam Increases the Customer Comfort of Company's Entire Collection

CEDIA EXPO, ATLANTA, Sept. 23, 2010 - Salamander Designs, Ltd., a leading designer and manufacturer of modern furniture, seating and mounting products for Home Theater and audio/video entertainment systems, is increasing both the customer comfort and environmental responsibility of its premium Home Theater seating collection.


Salamander Designs is adding a layer of memory foam to the cushions and backs of all its theater seats. This will make all the seats more comfortable. Eco -friendly, soybean -based foam will continue to be used as the core for all seating. This soy foam reduces the amount of petroleum used in polyurethane foam (a core material in cushions). The new combination of foams is more comfortable, more durable and more eco -friendly than the combination of materials used previously.

The memory foam, similar to that used in Tempur -pedic® mattresses, is much denser than conventional foam, with an open -cell structure that provides better support. As a seated person shifts his or her weight, the foam constantly and subtly readjusts itself to provide continuous support.

The new combination of materials further demonstrates Salamander Designs' dedication to its philosophy of continuous innovation and Environmentally Friendly Operations. "We are committed to making business decisions that are globally responsible and environmentally friendly," said company president Salvatore Carrabba. "As alternatives present themselves, we make every effort to take advantage of Green opportunities in all aspects of our business."

Salamander Designs is applying the memory foams to its entire collection of premium Home Theater seating, including the Alex, Talia and Matteo lines. All the seats are hand -made in the USA by dedicated artisans. The company pays attention to every detail to ensure maximum reliability, durability and comfort. The three basic styles come in 27 high -fashion colors and four cover materials, including leathers that use an eco -friendly tanning process. Consumers can still customize their seating selections as simply as before, while enjoying the satisfaction of defining a solution, that is uniquely their own. The Salamander process allows customized seating to be shipped quickly, thus eliminating the usual penalty of a long wait for customization.

Salamander Designs can be seen at the CEDIA Show, Booth 3546, Georgia World Congress Center.
