Pure LatexBLISS, a division of Latex International, announced the opening of its first permanent European showroom in Brussels, Belgium. Opening its doors to retailers on May 10, 2012, the 884 square foot showroom is located at the high-traffic Trade Mart Brussels center in space D-334.
“Pure LatexBLISS is becoming the world’s fastest growing luxury mattress brand. This is the perfect time to expand our international presence and position Pure LatexBLISS as the go-to company for Talalay latex bedding worldwide,” said Pure LatexBLISS Co-Founder and CEO, Kurt Ling. “We chose Brussels because in addition to already having a presence in the city, as one of the largest international business hubs in Europe, its central location allows us easier access to the broader European market.”
The new showroom will highlight the company’s popular Slow and Fast Response Latex collections, all featuring ActiveFUSION Climate Control, as well as its uniquely designed Talalay latex mattresses. All BLISS products will continue to be made in the United States and shipped overseas to accommodate various sizes for each international market and ensure that all mattresses, toppers and pillows provide the same comfort and feel.
Launched in 2009, Pure LatexBLISS was the first branded all Talalay latex product offered in the United States. In January 2010, Pure LatexBLISS started being recognized as an alternative to memory foam sleep products and began its worldwide expansion in the UK. Later that year, the company added Maison de La Literie as its exclusive distributor in France. In 2011, the brand was launched in Belgium and in early 2012 began distribution in the Dutch market.
