Have you heard of Celliant®? Here is what you really want to know.

First, a little science. When astronauts are on the international space station, they experience gravity, light, and atmospheric pressure in an entirely different way than when they are walking around Earth like the rest of us. That makes sense—after all, if you spend your day floating around, you are bound to experience life a little differently.

One of the jobs of scientists is keeping those space explorers healthy. That is why NASA invented a performance fiber that came to be known as Celliant®. Celliant® is a blend of 13 natural minerals that, based on ancient wellness processes, interact with the body to actually change the performance of our biology.

Celliant® uses your excess body heat (expressed as infrared light), and through specially designed clothing, recycles it into a form of light/energy that your body will reabsorb. This recycling process helps increase circulation by re-harnessing the body’s energy, which results in, improved (higher) oxygen levels from your skin to your arterial level.

Depending on whom you are and what you do, you care about this discovery for different reasons. Reebok™, Saucony™ and IronMan™ use this technology to improve performance in top athletes: they feel less fatigue, experience increased endurance, have faster muscle recovery, and experience less soreness. Healthcare centers use Celliant® to help diabetic patients improve circulation in their limbs or to increase the rate of tissue growth in burn units.

Sopora uses Celliant® in our sleep products because the fiber has been clinically proven to improve sleep quality. Increased circulation results in more oxygen in the blood which results in deeper, calmer rest. It also results in improved temperature control. So, when you add a performance fiber to your crib, you are offering your child (and yourself) better sleep every day and every night. And let’s face it, a happy, well rested child equals a happy, well rested mommy.

Sound amazing? It is. And what’s more, our Celliant® fabric crib mattresses are available to you right now from our Sopora retail partners. And arriving in stores soon, you’ll find Celliant® products for your child no matter what their age: from crib mattresses, to liners for bassinet/cradles, twins and fulls; from swaddle blankets to toddler pillows, our Sopora O2 Collection is filled with cool technology to help your child sleep longer, better. Visit one of our stores today to see our amazing crib mattresses for yourself, and get ready to meet the rest of the O2 Collection coming this winter!

Beyond the Crib

If you’re expecting your first child, chances are you in the midst of tossing around nursery ideas and exactly what you want that space to be like for your little one.  You are probably not thinking beyond the next several months when you bring that beautiful bundle of joy into the world, but you should.

While shopping for the perfect nursery furniture, you should consider making a purchase that can provide you with longevity.  Because, let’s face it, our little ones grow up, and fast!  Just think, as much fun as you are having designing that perfect nursery now, you will have just as much fun in a few years creating the ultimate big kid room, and eventually turning that space into a guest room once little bambino is all grown up and off to college.

Muniré and Echelon cribs are designed with this exact situation in mind.  Our lifetime cribs are designed as a full bed first, and then we adapt them into beautiful cribs.  High-back headboards and detailed footboards make it hard to imagine a converted full bed was ever a crib—because let’s face it, furniture is an investment, and you want to make it worthwhile.

So, to show you exactly what we mean, and how you can transform a crib into a beautifully styled big kid or guest room, take a peek at these rooms using Muniré and Echelon Collections.

Parents, tell us what you think.  Do you see the benefits of lifetime cribs and premium furniture collections, protecting your investment today to continue enjoying tomorrow?  We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Another Addition to Our Family

We are simply thrilled to bring you the all new website dedicated exclusively to our luxury children’s furniture brand, Echelon Furniture.

Echelon Furniture is a sister brand of the popular Muniré Furniture and Sopora Sleep.  But, you should know that there are several things that set this brand apart from the other luxury children’s furniture brands out there.

First, most of the pieces in each of the Echelon collections are built right here in the United States—in Indiana, to be exact.  The finest American hard maple is used, along with a 9-step finishing process for added quality and durability. They are built to last with all-wood English dovetail drawers and high quality concealed under-mount soft closing drawer glides.  And of course, all pieces in our luxury nursery furniture collections meet or exceed U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission regulations and conform to ASTM standards.

So, we’ve launched this new site to give you the information and products you need to create the perfectly luxurious nursery for your little one.  We’ve now made it possible to purchase Echelon through our website and pick up at a local dealer, or have it shipped directly to your home if there is not a dealer within your area.  All the components you need to create that perfect little nest, right at your fingertips!

And, we’re on all of your favorite social sites, too.  Join us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ to stay up to date with all of our latest products, industry happenings and receive access to exclusive deals.  Oh, and we always enjoy hearing from you, too, so feel free to drop us a note, share your nursery and tell us about your Echelon experience.
