ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the influence of the principles of feng shui on the mattress makers in China. Mattress makers in China use Eastern beliefs and inspirational sayings that would be right at home in the Western countries to give their companies an edge in the marketplace. For example, Xilinmen Group and Stylution International Corp., two of China's largest mattress makers, have factory complexes that employ principles of feng shui, a set of traditional Chinese spiritual law used to bring good luck and keep away bad luck.
