PATERSON, NJ—Samuelson Furniture has donated Allure, a ‘Sound by Samuelson’ chair, to the Miriam Apartments at Daughters of Miriam Center. The center is a local not-for-profit independent living facility providing care to senior residents in northern New Jersey. The Paterson-based furniture manufacturer contributed the upscale, Bluetooth-enabled lounge chair to the long-standing organization to promote wellness and empower community members. The fully-upholstered Allure chair is installed in a communal space in the Esther and Sam Schwartz building, located on The Daughters of Miriam Center/The Gallen Institute campus on Hazel Street in Clifton, New Jersey.
”Our team loves exploring new ways to give back to our local community,” said Michael Chalfin, executive vice president of Samuelson Furniture. “We’re honored to offer our support to the residents of The Miriam Apartments—our hope is that Allure benefits their day-to-day lives by giving each person the opportunity to have a unique, immersive sound experience within their common space, whether it be relaxing with music, watching movies or listening to audiobooks.”
Samuelson Furniture’s thoughtful seating design is the result of years of extensive ergonomic research, with each piece thoroughly tested and engineered to meet the needs of seniors. Allure provides optimal back support with a height and depth that has been engineered for ease of entry and exit.
The patent-pending Bluetooth system is built into the brand’s seating through high-grade technology—transforming the chair itself into the speaker—for a private sound experience. The integrated technology eliminates the need for invasive earbuds or a volume level that is uncomfortable for those nearby. Additionally, the engaging, personalized audio experience makes it an effective means for sound therapy and memory care applications, such as playing calming music or other soothing sounds for community members.
“Music is indeed a universal language, so all our seniors can benefit from this gift,” said Daughters of Miriam’s executive vice president Fred Feinstein (quoting American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow).
