CYPRESS, CA--(Marketwire - May 8, 2008) - Exemplis Corp., makers of SitOnIt® Seating, the top selling brand of midmarket task seating, announced the launch of its newest furniture brand: IDEON. This line of upscale furniture boldly extends the company's offering by providing high-quality, stylish lounge seating + tables for the contract furniture market quickly and consistently. The design platform, combined with flexibility, technology and speed, revitalizes the way designers and dealers specify furniture.

Stylish, functional, warm and inviting -- the IDEON line sets the standard for great taste in every project and displays attention to detail at every turn. Whether designers want a look that's "casual and adaptable" or "sophisticated and plush," IDEON is a top choice for any project, looks good and sits delightful.

"IDEON is much more than a brand; it's a new way to design, specify and order lounge seating and tables," said Paul DeVries, CEO. "It delivers creativity, value and ultimate responsiveness to furniture design -- offering dealers and designers more control over specifications and a whole new way to turn their visions into beautiful reality. Our online customization + design process, combined with our precision craftsmanship and 10-day standard lead time, truly represents innovative thinking -- and an unprecedented value proposition to the industry."

    sizes, fabric options and edge treatments -- creating the exact look they
    want in just minutes.
    
--  Business efficiency - Designers can streamline their processes and

--  Environmental responsibility - IDEON manufacturing processes were
    designed from the ground up to minimize environmental impact through lean
    processes, waste management and recycling of raw materials. The entire
    seating line is GREENGUARD certified, and a unique rail system allows for
    modular assembly and in-field retrofits, which extends the life, investment
    and sustainability of the product.
