“Luxury Beds For The Best Sleep Imaginable”

Hästens: History Since 1852

Hästens was founded in Sweden in 1852. It is a family company with a legacy running through six generations. Each generation has played a major role in shaping the company along the way.

Today, Hästens is a world leader in the handcrafting of luxury beds. They only use ethically sourced natural materials, used in traditional bed making techniques. The skills they use have been passed down through generations of master craftsmen for 160 years.

In the early days, Hästens were master saddlers and upholsters. With the introduction of the car there was less need for saddlery. Because of this, the family then focused on producing beds by hand by master craftsmen entirely of natural materials.

Hästens are passionate about their beds. This unrelenting passion has driven them to pursue their dream over six generations. So that they can help you fulfil your dream of getting a good night’s sleep.

Master Craftsmen – A Passion for Beds


The Natural Materials in a Hästens bed

  • Horsetail Hair – Perfect for Sleep – Each strand of horsehair has a hollow tube that acts like a miniature airway. Therefore this helps to wick away moisture and lets fresh air in. Horsehair is free from allergens. Horsehair is an organic material with antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti- dust mite properties. Hence contributing to a healthy, hygienic sleeping environment.
  • Cotton – Keeps you Cool – Cotton also helps ventilate and wick away perspiration and high humidity.
  • Wool – Nature’s Minor Miracle – Wool is nature’s minor miracle. Pure wool will ensure you are warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s warm.
  • Flax – Stay Grounded – Flax diverts static electricity. Static electricity can almost certainly cause headaches and itchy skin. Hästens carefully calculates the layers of flax used in their beds so as to remove static electricity from your body.
  • Pine – Strength and Beauty – Finally, Pine is carefully selected from Pine trees from Sweden’s northern forests in their bed frames.
