Tony White, sales manager, shows the Kingsdown Sleep to Live® custom mattress, exclusively available in Oklahoma at Sunshine Furniture.
Many people know of Sunshine Furniture, 7178 S. Memorial in Tulsa, as having the largest selection of quality merchandise at the best prices in Oklahoma. Now Sunshine can also provide you with the best night’s sleep possible – every night.
Sunshine Furniture is the only retailer in the state to carry the Kingsdown Sleep to Live® mattress that is custom made for each individual’s body profile. Not only has Kingsdown been in the mattress business for over 100 years, they have also introduced the first sleep science store in the country.
Kingsdown’s philosophy is simple. The better you sleep, the better you will live. The company has taken the guesswork out of finding the right mattress for you by developing a scientific evaluation process that requires only about two minutes of your time. Just answer a few basic questions, then relax on the Kingsdown Sleep to Live diagnostic bed. Its computer goes to work on 18 key statistical measurements and more than 1,000 calculations.
The result is a personalized printed assessment that recommends which range of Sleep to Live mattresses is ideal for your body. Floor samples within each recommended range allow you to select different amenities at different price points.
Your partner goes through the same quick and easy process, and in about two weeks, a custom mattress is ready for the two of you. Each side is different, like having individual mattresses.
Owner Giovanni Rundo says that the Sleep to Live mattress has made a world of difference to customers who have long dealt with pain and thought they simply had to live with it. It has also changed the lives of people who used to feel tired every day, regardless of how much sleep they got, because they would toss and turn, wake up throughout the night, and were unable to get comfortable.
“We want value,” says Giovanni. “No other mattress retailer offers anything close to this.” Sunshine has only carried the Sleep to Live since January, but already customers are saying they wish they had known about its comfort and relief sooner.
Sunshine Furniture also features a large selection of home office furnishings, entertainment centers and television consoles. Their 100,000 square feet of inventory includes over 200 dining tables, 120 recliners, 110 sofa groups, 60 reclining sofas, 95 bedroom ensembles and 20 youth groups on display. For students going away to college, there are many pieces ideal for dorm rooms or apartments.
All kinds of accessories are available to complement the furnishings – just about anything that goes over, under or around each selection. Area rugs come in a wide range of sizes, colors, shapes and designs. Artwork and lamps add the final touches.
All products are sold with a full manufacturer’s warranty from companies that include Aico, Ashley, Carlton, Coaster, Holland House Furniture, Howard Miller, Legacy, Magnussen, Powell Company, Riverside, Samuel Lawrence Furniture, Shaw, Southern Motion and Steve Silver.
A popular convenience at Sunshine Furniture is the online financing application. Fill it out any time, 24/7, and in a few minutes you’ll have your pre-approved spending limit before shopping in the store. A layaway plan is also available to pay cash for purchases in small installments.
Sunshine Furniture is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. The store is conveniently located on the southwest corner of 71st and Memorial, behind Chuck E. Cheese’s.
