Ashley Sleep Mattress Provides Comfort to Injured Broadway Spider-Man Actor, Christopher Tierney With a Memory Foam Mattress

MANHATTAN, NY--(Marketwire - January 5, 2011) -  Although Christopher Tierney, the fourth Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark Broadway musical actor to be injured in the ambitious and expensive stage production, would rather erase the memory of his fall, he can rest and recover with comfort on a new Talalay Latex mattress provided by Ashley Sleep, a division of Ashley Furniture Industries.

"Christopher's dad, Tim Tierney, has been a member of the Ashley family for over seven years," said Gordon Hecht, Director of Sales for Ashley Sleep. "When we heard about Christopher's fall our concern was for his immediate condition. We also knew that we wanted to give Christopher a great bed that would help in his healing process."

With the help of the local Ashley Furniture HomeStore located in Long Island, the new Ashley Sleep mattress set is being delivered to the Spider-Man actor's local residence in Manhattan.

Christopher Tierney, a dancer/actor for the musical stage production, fell nearly 30 feet at the end of a preview performance in late December and suffered multiple injuries in the accident. While he is recovering "we want to be sure he would have the best rest and comfort possible and wanted to give the mattress to him as a get well gift," Hecht added.

The Talalay Latex mattress is a naturally hypoallergenic product that also reduces pressure points to bring more oxygen and nutrients to muscles for better circulation and a more restful sleep. Ashley Sleep also manufactures the Memory Foam mattress, designed to adapt to body weight and temperature, which helps alleviate pinches and pains that interrupt a good night's sleep.

Both the Advanced Memory Foam and Talalay Latex mattresses are sold through Ashley Furniture HomeStore and other select retailers. For more information about the mattresses and other Ashley Sleep products, visit
