My only mattresses from Chicago, but it is a quite good catch :-D
Just twin mattresses with nice flowers, in the american way (Wim, I know you were once wondering if it exists in Old Europe : my old mattress also had flowers or this kind of drawings, but it is in my attic and so i can't show it in here)

Yes or maybe a junk worker once order flowered fabric instead of the conventional plain one because he was drunk. Then they use it anyway, in order to not waste, and fired the worker. Luckily, it was springtime, so they have pretended to launch a new trend and it worked. But because the life is sometimes ironic, the worker never found a new job again.

Do you wonder how this trend came about? Did a mattress worker one day pop off the assembly line and say, "I think we need flowers! Flowers!" and it was so.

I have learned so much here on Streetmattress - I never thought to question the presence of flowers on mattresses.
