Beautyrest Opens Eyes with Innovative Sleep Concert at SXSW
South by Southwest is a weeklong party of innovation and hipness in Austin, Texas, each year, with everything from music to film to food sharing the spotlight. This year, one of the highlights was created by bedding brand Beautyrest. The brand set up 150 of its mattresses—complete with branded pillows, blankets and silk eye masks—on the stage of the Bass Concert Hall. The beds were placed around a piano, and German composer Max Richter along with a five-piece band and a vocalist performed his melodic, lullaby-inspired music for eight hours, starting at midnight. Adweek staff writer Katie Richards got one of the coveted beds and wrote about the experience. Beautyrest, by the way, is donating the 150 slightly used beds to charity, while Richter is teaming with the brand to take his “Sleep” performance on a North American tour.

In an attempt to capitalize on the exit of Toys R Us from the market, the California company that bought the KB brand in 2016 is in talks with pop-up operators to open stores in malls before Black Friday, the article says. What’s more, the article says that KB Toys’ specialty was selling discontinued and discounted merchandise and, in light of the downfall of Toys R Us, it’s a safe bet that Walmart, Target, and Amazon will increase their toy offerings. We wrote an article about Toys R Us back in November.
