Construction & Materials

Idle Hybrid
Idle Quilting Foam, Idle Air Flow Response Foam, Idle Cooling Buoyancy Foam, Quantum Edge-to-Edge Pocketed Coils, Idle Cooling Buoyancy Foam, Idle Air Flow Response Foam, Idle Quilting Foam
Top Layer: 2" Hyper-Elastic Polymer™ material in Smart Comfort Grid™ Non-toxic polyethylene copolymer powder coating, Middle Layer: 3.5" 1.8 lbs density polyurethane foam, Base Layer: 4" 2.0 lbs density polyurethane foam
Our Thermocool™ fabric is designed to work with the body's natural thermal capabilities through smart fiber cross-sections. It helps you to feel warm when you are cold and cool when you feel hot.
NEW SoftFlex Wave Knit : 29% Viscose, 67% Polyester, 4% Lycra (all +/- 5%). A custom, super-soft knit with tons of stretch so it can flex with both your movement and the Grid's. Its breathable material is also the perfect complement to the Grid's 1,800+ air channels.
Thermocool cover. Latex-like top layer is aerated for airflow and does not trap heat. Our Idle foam is temperature neutral, not using any visco-elastic or other heat-trapping chemicals so it's much cooler than memory foam. The coil units can sleep 20% cooler than a foam core. The quilting foam Is quilted into the cover for added softness and comfort on the very top layer. Combined with the custom blend foam (Idle Cooling Buoyancy Foam) that does not trap heat like memory foam and is much easier to adjust positions on. It is made without visco-elastic chemicals so it stays cooler than memory foam with better pressure relief.
Ventilation is the key to sleeping just right - not too hot, and not too cold. Purple achieves the ultimate sleep comfortability by combining a totally new material with a totally unique design. Purple remains temperature-neutral so you don't sleep hot and sweaty at night Purple's column design allows air to flow freely, preventing moisture trapping, extending the life of the mattress, and providing cleaner, more comfortable sleep. Thanks to the free air flow design and patented polymer materials, Purple naturally sleeps much cooler than memory foam, latex, and other mattress technology.
All Idle mattresses were 2-sided (the range has been expanded!). Two-sided meaning you can flip your mattress over to avoid body impressions in the foam and furthering the life of the bed. Ever wonder why your bed gets softer with use? The foam is breaking down and it will begin to sag and lose support. Flipping your mattress means it will feel new longer, last longer and save you money. Not to mention, the headache of buying another new mattress in a couple of years. The Idle Hybrids use the Quantum Edge-To-Edge Coil Unit. This is one of the best coil units available on the market. The Quantum Advantage: Edge Support: The coils run all the way to the edges of the mattress providing excellent edge support so you will not get a "roll off the bed" feeling. Motion Reduction: The coils react independently and will have much better motion isolation than a traditional coil system. Durability: The Quantum Coils System is one of the most durable systems you can get. With over 1000 coils in a queen your Idle Mattress will hold up for years.
A revolutionary mattress designed for just about everyone. It's designed to not only help you get better sleep, but to soothe joints, release pressure on the hips and shoulders, and support the neck and back. It's designed to make bedtime the highlight of your day! The Hyper-Elastic Polymer™ Purple is a pressure-releasing material. This material is organized in a grid formation, which creates walls that can support or fold, depending on how much pressure it receives. It's durable enough to last decades so you won't develop a body impression. And it buckles under specific pressure, which provides excellent motion isolation so you don't feel someone else move in the bed.
