Brothers Terry and Tony Pearce have been engineering lightweight cushion materials for wheelchairs and sporting goods since 1989. In 2013, the pair set out to design a mattress made entirely of their own patented foam, and two years later the Purple mattress was born. Today the brothers continue to expand their company with other sleep products beyond mattresses.

Heritage - 5/5

Purple is the latest technology venture from brothers and longtime inventors Tony and Terry Pearce. The two gained recognition in the early 1990s for innovating a lightweight cushioning material for wheelchair seats called Floam. Since then they have continued to develop durable, pressure-relieving foam products for a variety of consumer and medical markets.

Innovation - 5/5

Between them, the Pearce brothers have over 30 cushioning technology patents. They developed a machine called Mattress Max™ to make full-size mattresses out of their patented hyperelastic polymer, a strong and stretchy gel-like material.

Reliability - 4/5

The Purple website FAQs page addresses concerns regarding products, sizing, financing, and set-up. Customers can contact customer service representatives through live chat, email, and phone.

Social Good - 3/5

The company has not yet adopted a philanthropic mission.

Relevance - 5/5

Purple has high engagement on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Its social channels solicit reviews and customer feedback, promote products and giveaways, and post educational content on improved health through sleep. It is known for a viral "egg test" video, where a Goldilocks brand mascot tests if raw eggs on a Purple mattress crack under heavy glass (they don't).
