Leggett & Platt® Consumer Products Group Joins Forces With Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

Furniture World News on

As part of the company’s enhanced marketing focus, Leggett & Platt® Consumer Products Group announced that it recently partnered with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, donating three Leggett & Platt® Fashion Bed™ products to recently filmed shows. The first donation, one of Leggett & Platt® Fashion Bed™ brand’s top-selling “Euro” platform beds, was included in the November 18th episode. Donated to the Dunning family of Cool Spring, Del., the European-inspired, queen-size faux leather bed now adorns a bedroom in the family’s new home.

One of the largest projects in the show’s nearly eight-year history, the new Dunning home not only features high-quality bedroom décor and modern upgrades, it includes a soup kitchen for the family’s ministry, Jusst Sooup Ranch. All soup prepared by the Dunnings in their soup kitchen feeds the hungry.

“We were honored to participate in such an important episode. The Dunnings inspire hope for so many, and it was a privilege to be asked to contribute one of our products to their new beginning,” said Rob Woods, president of Leggett & Platt Consumer Products Group. “On behalf of Leggett & Platt®, we wish the Dunnings many great and lasting memories in their new home.”

In addition to the Euro donation, Leggett & Platt® Fashion Bed™ “Sasha” and “Miami” ornamental beds will be part of a future episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, focusing on the rebuilding of Joplin, Mo.

“Many Leggett & Platt® employee partners live in Joplin as it is just a town over from our headquarters in Carthage, and many of our own employee partners were profoundly affected by the tornadoes back in May,” Woods said. “The devastation was deeply felt within our corporate family as we lost one of our employee partners to Mother Nature’s destruction. Being involved in this episode was very important to us.”
