Princess and the Pea Mattresses

Recently I’ve been noticing a little micro trend of sorts that falls within the casual laid back look we’ve been seeing a lot of these past couple of years. I think with more of us spending a fair bit of time at home, thoughts of comfort and cozy have been on the forefront. And what says comfort and cozy more than a few extra layers of mattresses “Princess and the Pea” style?

I was having a hard time labeling these little roll up mattresses, some call them toppers, others daybeds, and others, simply mattresses, but Princess and the Pea was what came to mind initially. Whatever you call them, I think they are the perfect little accessory this summer that can adapt inside to out, or simply just to protect the top of your sofa from day to day wear. Check out what I mean below.

Gotta love a trend that not only looks comfy and cozy, but is also practical too. Protect a sofa, or rolled them up and take to the beach! 10/10.
