KCE Story

The KCE Bed Story

How the
Side Sleeping Electric Adjustable Bed
Came to Be

The idea for the KCE Bed came to me when visiting my son, Gavin, out-of-state one weekend. 
At the time Gavin lived in a minimalist-style studio apartment with the sofa being the guest sleeping space.  As I usually found myself sleeping on the sofa at home, rather than stay at a hotel, I slept on Gavin’s.  His sofa was deep seated with overstuffed removable pillows – and it was incredibly comfortable.

Awakening the next morning, after having slept so comfortably, the idea came to me and I said “This needs to be a bed!”

Gavin and I started discussing why so many people we know, including ourselves, prefer to sleep on a sofa.  We recognized the design actually creates an “embracing” effect while you sleep providing support, cozy-ness and comfort that encourages uninterrupted sleep.  

We researched side sleeping and found several scientific studies that state side sleeping is our anatomy’s natural sleep position.  We also discovered there are many wellness benefits to side sleeping and to feeling embraced during sleep.  

Upon returning home, I went on a search for a side sleeping bed.  The available adjustable beds all raised at the head and foot.  This type of design has you sleeping on your back and does not provide the side sleeping embrace sensation.  

I thought “Think of how many people would benefit from this new bed design”.  And so the KCE Bed story began.  

There are several amazing and wonderful people who contributed towards bringing You the KCE Bed.  

Jose who recognized the potential of the invention and agreed to build it in his manufacturing plant established by his grandfather in 1902; 

Justin who understood the value of the invention and worked expeditiously to secure the patent; 

Gavin who worked tirelessly and built the comprehensive internet marketing presence; developed the business plan & coached me on the process for success; and designed the appropriate composition of memory foam mattress to function correctly with the bed base; 

Martha and Patience who inspired me, always reminding me when the process became overwhelming, of the many people who will benefit from the KCE Bed; and 

Keith who pointed me towards the mattress manufacturer of the exclusive mattress.

Please enjoy Your KCE Bed and the wonder of a comforting and comfortable sleep!
