Here's a great pavilion from the 1964 World's Fair in New York, from the Simmons company. It's called the "Land of Enchantment," and it's a great example of modern architecture, now gone of course.
From the back of the card: "Downstairs, the Sandman guides a fascinating tour through the Wonderful World of Slumber with its lovable animated characters of fantasy. Upstairs, worn out visitors can privately rest, relax - even snooze, on a Beautyrest Adjustable Bed - the Bed of Tomorrow - that automatically adjusts to any comfortable position at a finger's touch."
A comprehensive description of the exhibition is available here, at the outstanding NYWF64 website: http://www.nywf64.com/simmon04.html Spread out over several pages, this article is one of many documenting the New York World's Fair by Bill Young, a great resource.
