Universal to Launch Motion Upholstery at October Market
Universal officials said the initial lineup includes traditional, transitional and modern styles, and said each frame comes with three cover options.
“With our upholstery program firmly in place, maintaining both smooth operations and significant order volume, it’s time to expand our footprint into motion,” said Senior Vice President of Sales Sean O’Connor. “These introductions offer retailers more options for satisfying the customer’s whole home needs.”
He said all recliner styles feature top-grain Moore and Giles leather, and are available with either push-back or power reclining Leggett & Platt mechanisms. Feather-blend seat backs offer sink-in comfort and seat cushions feature individually pocketed coils in a down feather blend wrap.
“Our vertical manufacturing ability provides the flexibility to combine goods from one resource with a wide variety of products to create efficient mixed containers,” said O’Connor. “Motion will help support this offering to our partners.”
He said the new motion program, which is the result of two years of extensive research and development, is being coupled with the introduction of 37 SKUs in stationary upholstery, including a variety of sofa, chair, ottoman and pillow designs.
