Title

Simmons and The Battle for "Bed Room"

Subject

bed, advertisement, Life Magazine, 1964,

Description

A Simmons Kingsize Bedrest advertisement. The ad features a man and a woman lying side by side in pajamas. The man's body is sprawled, taking up a lot of space. The woman is glaring and she is restricted to a third of the bed. The image reads: "Simmons ends The Battle for 'Bed Room' with a great new idea in sleep (flip the flap and see.)" Once flipped, the interior shows the same man and woman, in addition to two children, nestled under the woman's arm as she reads to them. The ad reads: "King-size Beautyrest by Simmons (6 1/2 feet wide!)"
