The new Copper Mattress line is designed to kill the COVID-19 virus.
MARCO ISLAND, Fla. – A father-son team with more than four decades of experience in the mattress industry has created a line of copper-rich mattresses designed to kill the COVID-19 virus.
The Copper Mattress Co. is offering three models of the mattress in different comfort feels that can be ordered online and delivered anywhere in the United States within a few days.
The Copper Mattress Co. is the brainchild of Greg and Richard Sumer, who have steadily grown Marco Island Mattress into one of the largest independent furniture and mattress retailers in the region, they say.
Copper Mattress is designed with three times the amount of copper-rich Talalay latex used in some mattresses. Copper’s anti-microbial properties repel germs, bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19, the company says.
“As consumers around the globe search for ways to make their homes safe from the COVID-19 virus, we have a tool to help in the fight,” said Richard Sumer, president of The Copper Mattress Co. “You spend most of your time at home in bed: seven to eight hours, or a third of your day. That is more than a chair at a desk or at a dining table. Having a safe sleep surface is critical. We not only provide a safe night’s sleep, but also a restful one.”
In addition to its germ-fighting abilities, copper helps maintain a cool sleep environment and also offers a number of proven health benefits, including anti-inflammatory properties that help rid the body of free radicals, increased blood flow and decreased recovery time.
The mattresses are available in three comfort levels – firm, cushion firm and plush – and sell for $2,000 in queen size.
Designed with copper-infused Talalay latex, individually pocketed coils, a cool-to-the-touch fabric and CertiPur-US foam, the mattresses are made in the U.S. The complete Copper Mattress Co. lineup is deliverable via FedEx in one box for contactless delivery.
In 2015, Sumer and his father relocated to Naples, Fla., from New Jersey and opened their first retail store in the Sunshine State. The showroom on Marco Island has been a success, and the store has expanded twice in the past five years and now boasts 8,500 square feet of showroom space.
Founded in 2019 by Richard Sumer, The Copper Mattress Co. is rooted in more than 70 years of home furnishings industry experience. The collection of mattresses is the first Sumer family brand to be sold on a national level though an e-commerce platform.
