Chinese e-commerce firm JD.com Inc. also participated in the round.
The company says it will use the proceeds on product development, international marketing and brand improvement.
At the same time, Sleepace, Luolai Home Textile and JD.com will establish a strategic partnership to develop, manufacture and sell smart home devices.
