The Princess and the Pea (and a daybed by Moroso)

This week I'm back to language school. We are reading the stories of Hans Christian Andersen (in Danish off course... so not as easy as it seems), and yesterday I rediscovered one of my favourites since I was a child. The Princess and the pea. I could always relate with that story because I bruise like a peach, and what little girl doesn't dream of being a princess?! But I liked it, above all, because of the pictures in the books of that huge bed, with 20 mattresses and 20 duvés, and all the other wonderful and colourful images I could create in my mind.

So It probably doesn't come as a surprise that one of my favourite pieces of furniture ever... a "must have" in my dream house... is the day bed called Principessa, designed by Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien for Moroso, and inspired by this same story.
