Artists Attend Star-Studded Opening at One-of-a-Kind Soho Gallery in NYC

When two like minded companies come together, dreams come true, and that's just what happened on Wednesday, April 26 at 112 Wooster Street in Soho, NYC.
Leesa and ArtLifting are a natural fit—Leesa donates a bed to a homeless shelter for every ten mattresses they sell. The newly opened Leesa Dream Gallery (which doubles as the most unique mattress store you could ever imagine) proudly displays our partnership and features commissioned pieces from twelve ArtLifting artists centered on the theme, “Everybody has a dream: what’s yours?”
“Having successfully introduced a new mattress and a new way to shop online in our first year, The Leesa Dream Gallery is the next frontier. Combining with ArtLifting to create a new kind of retail experience while giving homeless and disabled artists a platform to show and sell their art is a dream come true,” said Leesa Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer David Wolfe.
Five ArtLifting artists were present to celebrate the opening of the gallery and the unveiling of the limited edition Leesa ArtLifting Mattress, featuring a stunning design by Scott Benner. The large showing of support for the gallery's opening was beautiful to behold, with many celebrities on hand to witness the artists' emotional speeches and striking artwork. Artists mingled with stars such as Dan Stevens of Downton Abbey fame, and one of the Leesa-inspired pieces—"Stacey's Dream" by Stacey Williams—was purchased by power couple Eric and Jessie James Decker (Eric & Jessie: Game On).
The Leesa Dream Gallery in NYC is open every day of the week, and for those who can't make it to the gallery, you can find here the ArtLifting Leesa Collection Art Prints and Original Paintings. To learn more about the gallery and ArtLifting Limited Edition Mattress, please visit Leesa.com.
