Hästens makes possibly the world’s best beds. I’ve been dreaming of owning one since I spotted the classic check pattern in this beautiful photo shoot back in 2010, which is the company’s trademark; a stamp of quality that guarantees the height of confort.
Dedicated to quality, craftsmanship and tradition, the Swedish company has been a leading provider of luxury beds for over 160 years. Having set the standard, Hästens supplies the Swedish Royal Family, and countless exclusive hotels proudly furnish their rooms with the famous mattresses.
As you might know by now, I’m growing fond of earthy hues (just take a look at this interior designed by Katty Scheibeck or these pictures from Daniella Witte’s portfolio, and you’ll be convinced too!), and I was in awe when I found out about the recently launched limited edition. From 1st of September to the 31st of December 2014, Hästens beds are available in a new color inspired by the iconic ‘Stockholmsvit‘ (Stockholm White) from the 1950’s. This white with a warm and comfy greyish-yellow tone is a new twist on a Scandinavian classic, and a tribute to Hästens’ Swedish heritage. Classic, elegant, timeless.
I had the chance to sleep on an Hästens bed before; It felt like sleeping on a cloud! The beds are made entirely by hand skilled and passionate craftsmen in Köping, Sweden, using only the finest all-natural materials: Horsehair (Hästen means ‘horse’ in Swedish), flax, cotton, wool, pine… An impressive 140 hours go into the production of one single mattress. A true work of art.
