At Tensira, overlay mattresses are among the most iconic and essential pieces. Available since the brand’s creation in 2009, they are made in 100% cotton, a natural fiber that makes them irresistible. 

Over the years, our overlay mattresses also called bedrolls or throwbeds have been reinvented to meet your expectations! You can now order them in different sizes, options and in many beautiful fabrics.
Restyle your couch effortlessly with the your favorite Tensira mattresses.
Since Fall23, you can choose the filling of your choice: natural fiber, 100% non-treated cotton or our new alternative recycled microfiber filling, very practical, soft touch and light, and what the best you can wash it entirely in the machine!

Whatever the season: our blues, pastels, bold and neutral color palettes bring warmth and elegance into your homes. Tensira offers graphic patterns where stripes are a real link between each collection.
Timeless designs are also told in color. Indigo blue, because in the beginning there was indigo, the traditional West African dye. Blacks because they emphasize the essential. And finally, the beige & earth colors, reminiscent of clay and sand, warm and natural.
Each pattern is available in new colors and they can be combined to create a unique decoration.

Two versions of mattresses are available on the eshop:
