Please Remain Seated

Purple seat cushion makes the world a softer place

Details are key in this world. And sometimes those details are obvious, and sometimes not so much.

That new chair you ordered for your home office where you may spend the rest of your professional career? It swivels, it leans, it hops and it careens, but is it really comfy enough?

We thought ours was, it being a nationally known, high-quality, state-of-the-art office chair, which you would recognize. But we digress.

As comfortable as it was, it seemed to lack that little last bit of “aaah,” when we sat down for yet another day of everything in the world. So we looked around. And you know, there are lots of seat cushions out there, in a lot of different designs and constructions.

A lot of them caught our eye, and one caught something else—the place where we sit.

The Purple seat cushion, from the Purple mattress company, is a new way of building seat cushions—with something called Purple GelFlex Grid technology.

The pillow looks like an open-topped screen, that, made of any other material, would be decidedly uncomfortable. But the Grid’s columns give way under pressure from hips and shoulders to cradle your weight, while offering support to evenly distribute one’s weight.

It shifts as one changes their position. When you move, it moves, with 1,400+ ventilation chambers for better airflow.

When ours arrived, we slipped it into the discreet and stylish black cover (with handles!), and eased down into our seat. Hours passed.

We were cool. Literally. And comfy, which is really all that matters sometimes.

The Purple seat cushion is available at Mattress Firm – Shops On South Lake Avenue, 455 South Lake Avenue Suite 105. Pasadena, Ca. (626) 263-4739; and Mattress Firm – Foothill Blvd, 3385 East Foothill Boulevard, Pasadena, CA. (626) 469-8740
