Furnitureland South Featured on Animal Planet’s “Tanked” as part of Sleepland Grand Opening

Tanked Bed

Jamestown, North Carolina, April 18, 2012 -- Furnitureland South is excited to be featured on Animal Planet’s hit series “Tanked” on Saturday, April 28, at 9 pm (ET/PT). The episode will spotlight Furnitureland South as it works with brothers-in-law Wayde King and Brett Raymer, co-owners of Acrylic Tank Manufacturing, the largest aquarium manufacturing company in the nation, to create an incredible 650-gallon headboard tank that is currently on display in Sleepland.

Episode Description:

World Premiere Saturday, April 28, at 9 PM (ET/PT)

Wayde and Brett arrive in America’s furniture capital, North Carolina, to meet with Furnitureland South’s owners, Jason and Jeff Harris. When Jason and Jeff request a serene and tranquil tank for the store’s bedding section, Wayde and Brett learn that you don’t get to manage a furniture empire without having a few crazy ideas. While one brother asks for a serene and tranquil tank to occupy the bedding section, the other wants a “loud tank that doesn’t scream.” Jason and Jeff’s varying visions for the aquarium end up making Wayde and Brett’s heads spin. Later, on another job, Wayde and Brett discover these types of requests keep rolling in when a client asks for a giant, floating spade tank for his tattoo parlor. With tattoo guns buzzing and bikers coming in and out of the shop, the owner of Black Spade Tattoo Parlor wants a tank that creates a calm environment and alleviates any worries ink newbies may have. Wayde and Brett decide to try and find their own Zen place to get in the right frame of mind and even go as far as checking out a yoga class for ideas. Unfortunately for Wayde and Brett, they find these tranquil tanks leave them far from relaxed.
