Description
León has furnished what was once a third-floor bedroom at the Mattress Factory’s satellite facility with natural elements. In Habitat, the pillowcases on the bed are printed with images of rocks, and sheets display pictures of earth. A bedspread is made with artificial grass, and clouds dot the blue sky wallpaper behind the bed.
