Hästens is the unconditional Rolls-Royce among sleeping beds. The Swedish manufacturer has spent several years manufacturing the perfect sleeping cloud. Today their beds are world-famous, mainly because of the typical check pattern.
A human being sleeps for more than 24 years of their life. Often he does this on a mattress that is not adapted to the body in the best possible way and is, therefore, uncomfortable. And while we lie on our mattresses that are too soft, too hard or too worn out, we dream of the perfect bed. Hästens.
Luxury beds with horsehair
What makes Hästens beds special is their filling made of horsehair – in this case, the tail hairs of a horse. When you think of upholstery for your bed, you may not immediately have horsehair in mind.
Horsehair is one of the oldest upholstery materials. It has unique hygroscopic properties, absorbs hardly any heat, is air-permeable and also durable. When crimped, it is also very elastic and has good bounce.
Now the cosiness results first of all from the construction of the beds. All Hästens beds are boxspring beds: at the bottom are the Bonell springs that make up every boxspring bed. Then follow several layers of pocket springs, horsehair, cotton, alpaca wool and wool in the Swedish luxury models – constantly alternating. On top still follows a topper, which is also filled with cotton and horsehair. By the way, this is also suitable for allergy sufferers without any worries.
The Hästens life-style
Neither the horsehair nor the checkered design typical of this manufacturer initially drew attention to the luxury beds. It was simply the price. One celebrity has a Hästens in their bedroom that costs over USD 100,000.
However, looking at their homepage, you realize that while each Hästens costs a few thousand US dollars, the 25-year warranty can be well worth it. You better take a slightly cheaper Hästens, but the best topper to sink into your dream journey. The question is: What is a good night’s sleep worth to you?
At least we are always delighted to lie back in our Hästens after a business trip and give our bodies the rest they need. The extreme care and attention to detail make each bed unique and customizable to the smallest detail. Experience the difference – just as a test in one of the Hästens stores.
Unfortunately, Hästens does not have a media library.
