The trick with room set photography and mattresses in particular is to make an empty space look like a room without looking like a room. Dressers are slid in at unusual angles, improbable plants and impractical lamps are mixed and matched whilst chins are scratched. These sorts of shoots are always a team effort and the simple end result takes a lot of sweat to get there. This shoot for Usel was in their new light-filled showroom. At one point I sped across town and raided my house for all the plants and cushions I could put my hands on.
