WARREN, Mich., July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Getting a good night's sleep will soon be easier with the announcement that Art Van Furniture plans to convert 31 Mattress World locations throughout Michigan and Indianapolis to its signature Art Van PureSleep stores. Well-known for its exclusive, state-of-the-art diagnostic system that determines the exact mattress and pillow best suited for each individual's comfort, Art Van PureSleep has become the most trusted and sought-after brand among consumers in search of their ideal bed.  The conversion now creates 76 Art Van PureSleep stores.

"Our number one focus is always on the needs and desires of our valued customers, and they have spoken loud and clear by placing their trust in the Art Van PureSleep  brand," said Art Van Elslander, founder and chairman of Art Van Furniture. "It makes sense to put all of our efforts into further enhancing and growing Art Van PureSleep, which has become one of the most sought-after sleep science systems in the entire furniture industry."

Specialty sleep stores are one of the fastest growing retail categories. Art Van Furniture originally acquired the Howell, Michigan-based Mattress World chain in May 2011, which provided Michigan's number one furniture retailer a presence outside of the state for the first time. The conversion will begin August 1st, will be completed by the end of 2013, and all Mattress World associates will be Art Van employees.

Art Van Furniture is Michigan's number one mattress retailer. The company carries all major mattress and bedding brands including Kluft, Sealy, Beautyrest, Sleep to Live, Stearns & Foster, Tempur-Pedic, King Koil, ComforPedic, and more. The PureSleep System fits guests to the right mattress, pillow and protector to deliver their best sleep ever - the deep restorative sleep that provides better energy, fewer body aches and pains and improved concentration. There are currently Art Van PureSleep departments inside all 35 Art Van Furniture stores and 10 free standing stores in Michigan and Ohio, with four more scheduled to open in Michigan in 2013.
