35 Princess and the Pea Inspirations

From Fairy Tale Featherbeds to Piled Pillow Seating

— January 11, 2011 — Art & Design
Reminiscent of one of my favorite Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales, these Princess and the Pea inspirations take the form of couches, chairs, beds and multilayered mattresses that will have you living the cushy high life.

From foldable featherbeds to unstable sofas, these furnishings would truly test your sensitivity to stacked up softness.
