Stay comfy with a mattress sofa

Go from lounging on the sofa to being sprawled (comfortably) on the floor. Here’s how to do this. The sofa is made of a mattress. When you decide to cosy up on the floor, simply unhook the headrest, take it down and make yourself comfy.

How does one create the backrest? It’s simple. Cover the mattress and sew on some buttons and hoops. Next, attach some hooks to the wall and hang the headrest (like this). The mattress sofa is one of the ideas from our Square Metre Challenge living/dining room. (check it out here).
