When it comes to mattresses, there are seemingly endless options on the market. But if you're looking for a mattress that offers the best of both worlds in terms of firmness and softness, then a Purple mattress is the way to go. Not only does a Purple mattress have the GelFlex Grid – which provides both – but it also offers simultaneous support.


At the Furniture Mall, we have a Mattress Headquarters, with tons of mattresses for you to look through, and we recently got in Purple mattresses. Here's a breakdown of the pros and cons of Purple mattresses, and the benefits of shopping for them at the Furniture Mall.



why are purple mattresses so popular?

The GelFlex Grid

  • Using a repeating geometric structure, the Purple Grid is able to maintain support while creating an area of cushioned comfort.
  • It instantly adapts as you move. No matter how you like to sleep, GelFlex Grid will reconfigure itself to your body shape.
  • The unique design of the Purple GelFlex Grid enables it to be both soft and supportive. Broad surfaces, like your back, are supported as well as more concentrated areas of weight like your shoulders and hips.


Find Your Perfect Match

  • The Purple mattress comes in a variety of sizes, so you can find the perfect fit for your body. Twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, California queen/king, and even Split California queen/king are all available.
  • There are also several types of Purple mattresses. Purple offers a comprehensive breakdown of the different types on its website here.
  • Mix and match different adjustable bases. The Furniture Mall offers a wide variety of headboards, adjustable bases, and pillows not just limited to the Purple brand.


Returns & Exchanges

  • Purple mattresses have a great policy for returns or exchanges, but the Furniture Mall actually offers a longer period of time for returns and exchanges. Purple offers 100 nights, while we offer 120 nights.
  • Our delivery times are also faster than Purple mattresses.


So Many Benefits!


  • The GelFlex Grid lets air flow and body heat escape. It also does not retain heat, so you'll sleep cool and comfortably.
  • Purple Mattresses are backed by a 10-year warranty, meaning they are very durable. The Hyper-Elastic Polymer effortlessly stretches and springs back.
  • This mattress is hypoallergenic and non-toxic. The GelFlex Grid is 100% nontoxic, CleanAir GOLD, and CertiPUR-US certified. That's a lot of fancy certifications that essentially mean this mattress won't poison you in your sleep.

Not Everyone Can Handle the Grid


  • Of course, if you're transitioning to a Purple Mattress you may not be used to the polymer grid. Make sure you read up on reviews before purchasing.
  • Purple Mattresses are pricey. The Furniture Mall offers financing options, but sometimes it's out of people's price range.
  • The mattress is also quite heavy. It might be difficult to move around or set up on your own, so you may need help from a friend or family member.
