LOS ANGELES, May 2 /PRNewswire/ -- If a picture says a thousand words, then these walls have very long conversations. This June, while hotels are battling over their beds, Oakwood Worldwide will present the next generation of comfort in corporate housing with its Oakwood Signature Apartment. These luxurious apartments feature not only the Oakwood Dream Bed, which rivals those of top hotels, but also upgraded home furnishings and one-of-a-kind art photographed by the company's own founder and chairman, Howard Ruby. Armed with a thirst for adventure and the latest digital technology, Ruby traveled the globe from Alaska to Africa, capturing enthralling images on many of his journeys. The result was a series of stunning and unique museum-quality photographs. The images range from a majestic landscape view of Mount McKinley to a sweeping aerial shot of the Skeleton Coast of Namibia. "Howard has a real eye and passion for photography," says Steve Selcer, senior vice president of Home Services and CFO. "He hand-selected the photographs that will adorn the walls within the Oakwood Signature Apartment. While each framed photograph gives the apartments a distinct sense of style and warmth, what is truly impressive is that they share with guests a part of himself." This rare example of a company founder sharing his personal experiences with his guests is just one element that makes the Oakwood Signature Apartment a standout. Another is the Oakwood Dream Bed. Offering a restful night's sleep, the Oakwood Dream Bed includes four pillows; down blanket; lush duvet; box-stitched, comfort-enhancing pillow-topper; a signature 'Oakwood' decorative pillow; and high thread-count sheets. "The Oakwood Dream Bed is an incredibly pampering treat," says Selcer. "The attention to detail and sheer comfort of our bed rivals any top-of-the-line hotel's."
