You’ll feel its soft, considerate, even embrace supporting your body’s every movement without disturbing your sleeping partner.

You will sleep and lie in perfect balance, with support coming from deep within. It’s this balance that makes Proferia special, responding to the movements of you and your sleeping partner effortlessly, so you’ll stir less as you sleep.

Calming and tranquil, there’s no end to the pure pleasure of sleeping in Auroria. We designed Hästens Auroria to be a companion for life; to give you truly beautiful mornings—whether you need to rush off to work, or have the time to enjoy breakfast in bed.

52


“Auroria is a calm, tranquil bed with a unique side stitch for lateral support so you can stretch out across the whole bed. You’ll feel its gentle support around you, with a different arrangement of layers and a single bonnell base.” P E R L A M U N H OZ B OV I N , R & D M A N AG E R

a very pliable combination of spring systems define Auroria, a continental bed with a softer personality. Double rows of side-stitching in a pattern developed for this bed bring structure and stability to its form, backed up internally with flax corners. Some say that Auroria has a special movement; we suggest you find out for yourself. Auroria has been constructed to bring pressure relief and support to your upper body and hips. An initial softness that you’ll sink into slowly is underpinned by deep stability. It has a 13cm Hästens Bonnell spring system in its base, combined with a 15cm pocket spring in the upper mattress, wrapped in layers of cotton, horsetail hair, wool and flax. Natural materials follow and adjust to your body’s contours to ensure the right sleeping climate. In Auroria, these materials are allowed to flex and move distributing pressure and softness across your body. Beautiful mornings are born out of wonderful sleep. And wonderful sleep—well, that comes from carefully selected natural materials, genuine craftsmanship, and centuries of bed making experience. Auroria is all that and more. It’s a work of art—the art we call sleep.

Hästens Luxuria is one of our newest continental beds.

Built completely by hand, and filled with durable horsehair and carefully selected natural materials, it’s not just a bed to feel good in. It’s a bed to feel good about.

“Luxuria’s such a great bed. Real value for money, steady but pliable with a low, slim profile that makes it really contemporary to view. We use a special Horsehair mix for Luxuria, which brings you closer to the heart of the support. It’ll never give you a dull night.” P E R L A M U N H OZ B OV I N , R & D M A N AG E R

low-profile and poised stance, Hästens Luxuria is a beautiful bed. Hand-crafted with durable horsehair and carefully sourced natural materials, Luxuria delivers an incredible night’s sleep and is built with firmer, more linear support characteristics. You’ll feel how it immediately meets, and adjusts to your body weight as you lie down, before gently carrying you off to sleep. This extra support comes from a Bonnell spring system with a thicker thread dimension. Thick layers of cotton close to your body provide added softness. With Luxuria, you’ll awake alert, refreshed and energized. Real luxury is never artificial, it always comes from nature. And nature is the birthplace of Hästens Luxuria, one of the most loved models in our continental collection.

The Hästens horsehair top mattress provides that little extra initial spring. In the base of the Hästens Classic sits an 8cm Hästens Bonnell spring system and sturdy corner springs for form alignment.

Hästens Lenoria features layers of cotton, wool, flax and horsetail hair—for a pliable surface softness. The bed’s layers glide over one another and make its movements almost unnoticeable if you alter positions while in the bed. Hästens Lenoria has been specially designed with a sliding lateral movement that maintains a constant distance between bed and wall. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, this also means that items like a bedside table will always be within reach. The bed can be adjusted via its own controller, or connected to your phone via Bluetooth so it can be adjusted from afar, ready for when you need it. Lenoria’s motors are certified in accordance with the Eco Design Directive (needing only 0.5W on standby) and can also be tailored to your requirements without hindering its performance. You can even specify a split bed, with different comfort and support levels on each side—with its wall-hugging movements ensuring you and your partner remain in perfect harmony.

Hästens Novoria has rich layers of breathable natural cotton, wool and horsehair spread over flax for static reduction and pliability. The movements of the bed are unhindered as a result and virtually silent in action. Hästens Novoria features two spring systems for a deep support that meets your body, holding it in alignment while sleeping but also giving a reliable hold when in a more upright position. Operation of the adjustable bed is made via a wireless remote to avoid wires and cables ruining your sleep space. Novoria’s motors are made and certified in accordance with the Eco Design Directive—requiring only half a watt to remain on standby. If you or your partner need different levels of support, Novoria can be made bespoke to fit your requirements as a split mattress. The pliable, breathable, natural layers will keep the stress on the bed’s motors to a minimum, meaning years of contour-hugging comfort.

As perfect for your first Hästens experience as it is to treating guests in your spare room, Superia is a high-performance sleep machine.

Multiple layers of cotton and wool are distributed by hand across its expanse for a pliability and softness no synthetic bed could ever match. Hästens attention to detail defines Superia, from the construction of its perfectly aligned frame to the lining that prevents dust from entering the bed from underneath. Superia is often described as supple to the touch, its layers of natural materials moulding to support and caress your body. Yet the support from within will make you feel almost weightless as you drift into sleep. Given that most of the technology in an integrated bed is contained in its frame, it’s vital this base is built to last to your exacting specifications, and that it meets our own peerless quality control. Superia exceeds on these counts. One factor of Superia’s twin Hästens spring systems is that they are virtually silent in operation. So while they work flawlessly to support your every move during sleep; they’ll do so without making a sound.

Marquis is a bed conceived as an idea during a conversation in one of the finest hotels the world has to offer; “Can a bed be revolutionary?” The best natural materials, handmade in Sweden with passion, care and love, so that you too can sleep perfectly—we call it our quiet revolution.

80


“Marquis is our steadiest frame bed. Slim, thanks to its compact spring system, and therefore very well ventilated. It’s got a minimalistic profile, and balletic poise. Experiment with the size of the legs, because you can really alter its aesthetic for any type of room.” P E R L A M U N H OZ B OV I N , R & D M A N AG E R

innovations in Hästens beds can be traced back to the Marquis. Wonderfully comfortable, with a clean low profile, Marquis is handmade using our finest natural materials. The bed features double spring systems set up slightly on the firmer side. With the same ground-breaking spring and layering technology as Hästens beds in other tiers, Marquis is a versatile bed and incredible value for money. Marquis’ firmness stems from its Hästens Bonnell spring systems, giving 13cm of steady support for ultimate relaxation. Layers of premium cotton, wool and flax create immediate softness your body will feel. Natural materials that will regulate your body’s temperature for a beautiful, energizing sleep.

can’t be measured against another brand. If you’ve been sleeping on synthetic beds all your life, really allow yourself to enjoy that first touch, and the way the rich Hästens softness embraces and caresses your body. And you’re welcome to spend as much time in the store as you need. Or at least until we have to lock up.

DON ’T BE AFR AID TO ASK

OUR BEDS

Asking “How to choose the right bed?” is an incredibly important question. Your bed is the single most important item of furniture in your life. You’ll be spending around 25 years asleep in it. And making sure that your sleep is deep and uninterrupted night after night is vital to living a long, active, healthy life. A life that’s as good as you’ll allow it to be.

W H AT K I N D O F P I L L O W I S R I G H T F O R Y O U ?

If you’ve a soft Hästens you may only need a slim pillow to help keep your body aligned as you sleep. In some cases, we’ve known individuals with soft Hästens to not even need a pillow.

TRY TRY AND TRY

Take your time and try different Hästens beds and levels of firmness as you work your way towards discovering which is right for you. We usually say that the right bed is the one in which you realize you are not even aware of the bed. You only notice how comfortable you are.

HÄSTENS SUPPORT IS SPECIAL

At a typical bed or mattress store, a salesperson would probably recommend you buy a very firm mattress. The reason is that most mattresses start to lose their support almost straight away—bad materials, and careless design. With Hästens that’s never a worry. You can buy whichever level of support you enjoy the most, one of the benefits of investing in a Hästens.

L E T YO U R B O DY C H O O S E

To find out which firmness to select, listen to your body and mind. How do you feel? If you feel like you are sinking into the bed, it is too soft. If you don’t sink in at all, then maybe the bed is too firm. The right bed is one where you experience a feeling of weightlessness, with your entire body supported and aligned effortlessly.

S U P P O R T FO R YO U A N D O U R P L A N E T

Hästens support lasts, and should do for up to 25 years as long as you flip and rotate your mattress every now and then. No more buying a bed every three-to-five years. Better for you, and much better for our planet.

HÄSTENS IS A DIFFERENT KIND OF BED

We say that there is a gulf of difference between a Hästens bed and others you may come across. The level of quality and lifespan of a Hästens simply

82


H OW TO C H O O S E YO U R B E D

is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your life. The wrong bed could ruin your life. Your Hästens will define it.

VIVIDUS IS THE FINEST BED WE’VE EVER MADE.

210 kilos of natural materials. 320 man hours of craft. Made by our most experienced craftsmen in our Vividus atelier.


T H E G R E AT E S T H A N D M A D E B E D I N T H E WO R L D

Created without compromise by hästens most skilled craftsmen to redefine the meaning of comfort and provide the most blissful sleep you’ll ever experience. The best bed we ever made.

88


THE FINEST BED IN THE WORLD

Vividus is the ultimate perfection. The luxury bed of luxury beds. The result of our centuries-long passion for craftsmanship and passion for expert bed making. Vividus by Hästens is a showcase of the finest natural materials, painstaking traditional hand-craft and detailing. And to experience the Vividus sleep is like touching a dream. Quite simply, it’s the best bed we’ve ever made. A bed like vividus can only be truly experienced in person at a limited number of exclusive locations. During your private, VIP experience you’ll be guided through Vividus’ construction, your personalised options and immerse yourself in its tranquilty.

90


91


THE GOAL IS SIMPLE: PERFECTION

“We build all beds by hand to be in touch with the bed and its construction in every way, to ensure that the outcome is perfection. It’s a work of art. When you are using natural materials, you can feel what is right. Working this way is about experience. It takes time to know that feeling. I oversee every element of each Vividus, very carefully. It is not only about touch, but also about sight, I use several senses when crafting a bed by hand. This is a mastery that you can’t just ‘learn,’ you really have to practice, time and again, over and over. My purpose is to ensure that our future generation bed makers are more skilled than I. If we want to have the best beds in the world, we simply have to do it better, and even better and do more every day—until it is perfect. If it’s not perfect, then I will start over.”

One of our favorite accessories for crisp autumn nights and chilly winter days. Made of 100% baby alpaca wool. The alpacas are around two-and-a-half years old when sheared for the first time. The wool from the first shearing is called ‘baby alpaca wool’ and is known for being finer than the wool from the adult alpaca. Alpaca wool is naturally hypo-allergenic as it is the only wool fiber that does not contain lanolin, the main cause of wool allergies. It also has softer fibers than sheeps wool, meaning it is less likely to cause itchiness. Available in three colors: navy/cream check, granite, and cream. The cream and granite are natural colors of the alpaca animals, navy is dyed.

S L E E P N A T U R A L LY Quality and sustainability go hand in hand. That is why we use renewable resources and exclusively all-natural materials to create perfect sleep. The finest pure flax, wool and cotton, the highest quality pine from Sweden, and genuine, hypo-allergenic horsehair.

natural materials. Know that regardless of how you sleep, there’s a Hästens bed perfectly constructed for you, and we’ll help you to discover it.

C R E AT I N G T H E C O N D I T I O N S F O R S L E E P

A S TO RY O F S L E E P

If you were to chop open up a few beds, you would be surprised to see how different they are. Especially if one of them was a Hästens. “Does a bed really need that many layers?” you might ask. “Does it really matter how you combine the materials in a bed?” With more than 160 years of experience and knowledge in bed engineering, we know the answers are all “Yes”. All-natural materials have properties and benefits that work differently depending on how they are used and layered. For example, when horsehair is divided into several layers and membranes of cotton and wool placed in between, the materials have greater room to move. This lends greater pliability and more comfortable support. And the horsetail hair itself has a capillary action that sucks up the moisture your body produces during sleep to help keep you dry and comfortable. Hästens beds feature individual combinations of the different layers of natural materials. The dimensions and proportions of each layer are also different to obtain the perfect design and comfort properties for each individual model. Natural materials allow the bed to breathe, circulating air around your body to create perfect sleeping conditions. Every single curled horsehair strand works as a miniature spring, enhancing the work of Hästens internal spring systems, while transporting moisture and unwanted heat from your body. Each bed’s layers are optimized according to the results of countless qualitative tests and mechanical calculations to maximize the benefits from the properties of our

A N AT U R A L C H O I C E

Choosing a Hästens bed is the most natural thing in the world. You get to sleep in a healthy environment that allows natural air circulation and transports moisture away – all free from foam rubber, polyurethane and latex. In our informed opinion, natural materials like cotton, wool, flax and horsetail hair are simply much better to have next to your skin than synthetic materials made from petro-chemicals. IT ’ S G O O D FO R YO U , A N D OT H E R S TO O

More and more people are becoming aware of the fact that certain materials are harmful to the environment, as well as to humans. Health and well-being go hand in hand with environmental and ethical responsibility, matters that affect us all. It’s our job to create and operate according to what is right, and adhere to a deep-rooted corporate and social responsibility program. In terms of sustainability and quality, Hästens beds are crafted to meet the most stringent requirements. This is important when the bed is made, when you use it, and when it is no longer needed. When the time comes, Hästens beds can be recycled, upcycled or safely returned to nature’s own natural cycle. As the saying goes, A product that comes from nature wants to return to nature. A comfort for your body and soul, and for the world we leave to our children.

H O R S E TA I L H A I R — P E R F E C T F O R S L E E P

A S TO RY O F S L E E P

Horsetail hair is a wonder material when it comes to constructing a bed. Every single curled strand works as a tiny spring, enhancing the work of our internal spring systems, providing support and pliability. Horsetail hair also comes with its own extremely effective, built-in ventilation system. Each strand of horsehair has a hollow tube that acts like a miniature airway, with with a microscopic capillary action that channels away moisture and lets fresh air in. Thanks to horsetail hair, you’ll fall asleep quicker and enjoy deep, uninterrupted, rejuvenating sleep at the perfect temperature. Just imagine what this does for the quality of your sleep and your life.

COOL COTTON

You have probably noticed how cool and dry you feel on a warm summer’s day when you wear a cotton shirt or blouse rather than one made from synthetic materials. This is due to cotton’s ability to ventilate and wick away perspiration and high humidity. Your perspiration during the night is 98 percent water, so it evaporates very easily if you sleep on a bed that breathes and use bed linen that does likewise. W O O L — P E R F O R M A N C E F R O M N AT U R E

Nature has created another minor miracle, the perfect partner for horsetail hair and cotton, a super-performance material; wool. Pure wool helps to ensure a good bed climate and works as your bed’s own temperature control unit. Since ancient times, people have known about wool’s amazing ability to warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s warm. You will stay dry, and sleep at just the right temperature.

C O M P L E T E LY F R E E F R O M A L L E R G E N S

The horsehair we use in our beds has been tested by a number of independent European research institutes. They have found it completely free from allergens, meaning that it does not cause allergies. Also worth noting is that horsehair is an organic material with natural antibacterial, antifungal and anti-mite properties that contribute to a healthy, hygienic sleeping environment.

OPTIMIZE D TH ROUG H E VOLUTION

The wool fiber has a complex spring-like structure with a textured surface, optimized through evolution to provide thermal protection. This unique cellular structure is very different from smooth synthetic fibres. The structure of wool allows for a large volume of air between the fibers, giving amazing natural insulation properties along with flexibility, elasticity and resilience. Wool can also absorb up to 30 percent of its weight in water without feeling wet. Tiny pores allow water to pass through the wool fibre, making the material comfortable during warm summer or cool winter nights. Sleep tight, all year round.

COTTON — FRESH , CLEAN AND SOFT

Cotton is perhaps nature’s softest and most comfortable gift to mankind. Providing wonderful comfort and breathability, Hästens soft cotton allows air to circulate around your body, keeping you dry and comfortable in a healthy sleeping environment. A FRESHER SLEEP

Human beings breathe through our skin as well as out lungs. We each have more than 7 million pores that breathe and remove toxins from our bodies. To stay dry and fresh, it is important to

springs to provide surface softness, and firmer springs below for deep support. With these spring systems working harmoniously, the bed conforms to your body to give you support, alignment and relaxation. Hästens springs carry a 25-year warranty.

THE PERFECT BLEND

Hästens beds contain a mix of wool and cotton precisely blended to provide superior comfort while bringing naturally fire-retardant properties to our beds. Wool is actually one of the most flame-resistant fibers in existence. It also possesses antistatic properties as well as being strong, elastic, water-resistant and heat-insulating.

MORE IS NOT BETTER

Flax has made life more comfortable for centuries. As well as being incredibly durable and flexible, it also diverts static electricity. According to studies, static electricity can cause headaches, dry mucus membranes and itchy skin. An overcharged human body can also attract undesired particles from its surroundings, which may cause or aggravate allergies. By using flax in carefully calculated layers, we remove static electricity from your body and help you create an altogether more positive energy while you sleep. Furthermore, flax is a fantastic noise and vibration absorber—a real peacemaker.

What makes the Hästens spring system work so well is not the number of springs, but the different types, how they are placed, and the way they combine with the layers of natural materials. A combination of spring dimension, height, and number of coils determines the quality and properties of the spring system. It is a precise engineering algorithm. For example, the higher the number of coils, the higher the bed’s quality and the longer its life but too many coils will affect a spring’s compression. The balance of variables is crucial when designing spring systems to achieve the optimal result. Each and every one of our spring systems is carefully calculated to provide the desired pressure relief and support needed to ensure a better sleep experience.

THE STRENGTH AND BE AUT Y OF PINE

POCKET SPRING SYSTEM

Hästens wooden frame gives your bed remarkable strength and stability. Our frames are made of solid, carefully selected pine trees from Sweden’s northern forests, where they grow at a slower pace—something that gives them enhanced strength. Quality and environmental responsibility are close to our heart. Our passion for nature extends from how each pine is grown to the regeneration of the forest. All wooden frames in Hästens beds and headboards are FSC-certified, which means they are traceable, and come from pine harvested in a way that maintains the forest’s biodiversity, productivity and ecological processes. We provide a 25-year warranty on all our bed frames.

Our pocket springs work independently of each other in a unique way. When weight is placed on a single spring, the adjacent springs are barely affected. Each spring moves individually according to every movement of your body, which means that when your partner turns over in bed you will barely notice it. Special heat treatment of the steel rearranges the springs’ metal structure, ensuring they retain their exact form and elasticity; always returning to their original position after compression. Each spring is placed in breathable pockets that allow air to pass through the entire bed to provide a healthy sleeping climate.

The lower spiral system serves to absorb more intense stress levels to the bed and contributes to spring depth and bottom spring action, giving your body support and in-depth relief. Each Hästens Bonnell system is configured according to the characteristics of each bed.

retains moisture, which means that much of what the body expels through perspiration stays in the bed. Your foam mattress is basically a sponge. Within a handful of years, your average foam mattress will double in weight from the moisture it will soak up! And in a warm and damp environment, bed mites, bacteria and germs multiply rapidly in these damp conditions.

OUR STUDIES

We have actually tried using chemical synthetics like foam, memory foam, latex, rubber, and silicone in the past as an R&D experiment. “Everyone else is raving about these materials, so we should investigate them as well,” we thought. After all, our 160 years of applied research in bed making has given us a deep-rooted understanding of why we sleep well and, equally as important, why we might not. So we tested. And what we found was revealing in many ways.

DISRUPTIVE SUPPORT

In terms of support and alignment a foam mattress, even memory foam, cannot compare to a spring system’s isolation of support. With a chemical synthetic mattress, the movements of you or your partner will never be truly isolated. And a chemical synthetic mattress will find it hard to maintain its support for the length of time a Hästens can. As articifical materials age they become brittle and dull in support—often breaking down and crumbling to expel microscopic particles into your bedroom. As if the initial gas-off wasn’t bad enough.

Temperature is one of the main reasons you’ll sleep badly. Too hot. Too cold. Sweating, overheating… Things the body does not like when it’s trying to repair itself. And, much like wrapping food in foil or plastic, your body simply cannot breathe and control its natural resting temperature when it’s wrapped in chemical synthetics. Things like thread count, comfort or support don’t matter when you’re too hot or too cold, which is one reason why we still use natural materials. Put simply, non-porous chemical synthetic materials like rubber, polyester, foam or latex offer barely any ventilation.

CR A F TING If you want to make the best beds in the world you have to have the best craftsmen and women. Skilled artisans whose technique and expertise surpasses that of anything a machine could achieve. Master Craftsmen like Jan-Erik Leander, whose passion for their art verges on the obsessive.

A S TO RY O F S L E E P

“When you are using natural materials, you can feel what is right. This is about experience. It takes time to know that feeling. I see everything through, very carefully. It is not only about touch, but also about sight and I use several senses when crafting a bed by hand. This is a mastery that you can’t just ‘learn,’ you really have to practice, time and again, over and over. My purpose, my responsibility, is to ensure that our future generation bed makers are more skilled than I am.”

H Ä S T E N S B E D S A R E nothing without handcraft, and we’re nothing without our soulful team of experts who ply the skills and traditional techniques handed down to them through six generations. Because of their tireless dedication to Hästens, your bed has a soul and character of its own. Swedish excellence and a devotion for making the best beds in the world are engrained in Hästens and everything we create. The world around us changes. Our devotion to hand-craft remains. It’s been this way since 1852. “I’m proud of the enduring commitment that is Hästens. Every day we continue the legacy. We create the innovations of discovery for the future, following the road from the heart to the unknown potential. We build all beds by hand to be in touch in every way, to ensure that the outcome is perfection. It’s a work of art.”

Jan-Erik Leander, Vividus Craftsman.

M A N U FAC T U R E R S OF SLEEP We’ve made beds since 1852, and we’re yet to find a better way of making than our traditional methods. Sure, there’s been refinement, as our mastery of natural materials has progressed but pure handcraft lies at the core of every detail of our beds. And the quality of the result is something that you can feel and sense, even before you lay down.

A S TO RY O F S L E E P

bed is a true case of design thinking in every aspect of its construction; with every element performing numerous individual tasks that add up to the whole Hästens experience of perfect sleep.

PROUD TRADITION, HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Hästens was, and still is, driven by our master craftsmen whose skill and attention to detail is beyond compare. Together, we share the desire to make better beds than anyone else on this earth. It’s an ambitious goal, yet one that we truly believe we’ve achieved. The culmination of the finest natural materials being placed in the finest, most capable hands.

W E D O N ’ T S L E E P O N T H E D E TA I L S

Sleep lies in the details. The engineering of the bed. In the devotion of the master craftsman’s work and handling of the all-natural materials. The selection of slow-growing pine from Sweden’s north. It’s the flax; durable and anti-static. The softest cotton distributed by hand. Breathable, temperature-regulating wool layered with care. And horsetail hair, ventilating and naturally springy massaged into place. It’s the variations of side stitching on each mattress, the placement of each spring, and the quality control—using Hästens Blue Check as an alignment tool. No corners will ever be cut in the creation of your Hästens.

H Ä S T E N S A N D T H E C R A F T O F I N N O V AT I O N

Sweden’s legacy of design and handcrafting is long, illustrious and fascinating. Rooted in what it is to be Swedish, how we think, act and live. And Hästens is very much a part of this legacy; boasting many landmark developments of our own that have actively contributed to how we sleep today. Behind every Hästens bed, from the feet up, are hundreds of man hours of iterations, research, development and design considerations. A Hästens

recommended that it be washed, laundered or dry cleaned. But accidents do happen and a textile cleaner or furniture foam should be sufficient to clean any stains. There is a small risk the cleaner could discolor the fabric or damage the natural mineral solution that makes the bed fire retardant. To prevent this, we suggest testing a small portion on an unobtrusive section of the mattress. For ultimate mattress protection, we recommend using a Hästens bed skirt and mattress cover.

Your Hästens mattress is upholstered with 100% natural materials—horsehair, cotton, flax, and wool. These materials will conform over time to adapt to your body shape and sleeping style, becoming more pliable and form-fitting. Careful care of your mattress will ensure it retains its beauty and, more importantly, delivers great comfort for decades to come. G E T T I N G S TA R T E D

Cleaning your bedroom or changing your sheets is an excellent time to examine your bed. Be sure to look for accumulated dust, any stains, and that your mattress is settling correctly.

COLOR APPEARANCE

All natural fabrics have a tendency to fade when exposed to intense sunlight or powerful spotlights for long periods. Hästens fabrics retain color well and we follow the European standard for color change due to light, where Hästens fabrics achieve 4 + on the 5 point scale. However, we recommend that you keep your Hästens bed away from strong direct light or protect the bed with a bed skirt if you wish to avoid slight color variations on the bed.

CLEANING

Your mattress will need vacuuming at regular intervals. Use the furniture attachment for best results. Don’t forget the dust inhibiting, cotton lining on the underside of the mattress. You can clean this area by flipping the mattress. If you have an adjustable bed, simply raise the head and foot sections so you can access underneath. Never try to beat the dust out of your top mattress! Use your vacuum instead.

FR AG R ANCE

When you first get your new mattress home, you may notice a slight scent from the natural materials your bed is made from. This is normal and will decrease over time. You can accelerate this process by keeping the climate in the room as stable as possible and airing out your mattress. This is as easy as not making your bed in the morning, and putting your linens and top mattress to the side. Your top mattress should be more thoroughly aired out at regular intervals—simply remove any bed linens that would normally cover it.

OU R STORY Swedish excellence and a devotion for making the finest beds are engrained in Hästens and everything we create. The world around us changes. Our devotion to handcraft remains. It’s been this way since 1852.

A S TO RY O F S L E E P

From the day we made our first bed, natural materials have always played a fundamental role. In 1852 cotton, horsetail hair, wool and flax were superior to other materials and, even today that remains the case. And then, as it is now, the best way to craft using these materials is by hand. This tradition of hand craftsmanship gives our bed makers a deeply-rooted understanding and mastery of both their art, and the natural materials that are so crucial to its consolidation. Imbuing everything we do with our Spirit of Excellence is still a founding principle that informs the work of our master craftsmen. And to them, there is no other way or standard of working.

a saddler. At the time, master saddlers were also upholsterers, proudly devoted to their craft of making equestrian goods and beds using horsetail hair. Our legacy—the horse, the horsetail hair, the tailor, the handcraft—is present in every detail of Hästens and its beds. Over time, as the automobile reduced the need for saddlery, the family focused more and more on beds. Soon Hästens specialized in making the most comfortable beds ever made; our knowledge and mastery of this intricate handcraft becoming unmatched. A fact not overlooked by Sweden’s Royal Court, to whom we have been purveyors since 1952.

On the face of it you might think Hästens Blue Check is a nice pattern—easy on the eye, with a color gradient that looks great on a bed. Yet the blue check we use on our beds is more than just a fabric or pattern. It has many roles to play; as a standard, as a means of communication, and one of our most important quality-assurance tools.

Hästens blue check was created in 1978 by our own Jack Ryde, father of current owner and executive chairman, Jan Ryde. He was fascinated by arts and design, and set out to draft a fresh, distinctive pattern (in a fabric of highest quality) to represent the brand. When his blue check was introduced at a furniture trade fair in Sweden it drew criticism from journalists who, at the time, believed this eye-catching design was at odds with the trend for shades of brown, green and orange. The blue and white chequered Hästens upholstery was unlike anything ever seen on a bed before. Today we know that developing blue check was a wise decision; and it’s a design which has grown to define Hästens.

The classic Hästens check is a jacquard woven fabric, made of 100 percent cotton of the highest quality and eco-friendly dyed in compliance with Oeko-Tex standard 100. The dense, lustrous fabric is woven with twined cotton, with as many as 45 threads per square centimeter (290 threads per square inch), engineered into bolsters with precision accuracy. Blue check acts as a physical alignment tool for our craftsmen, to give the right shape to our products. Throughout the Hästens factory, blue check is the grid from which quality and alignment are measured; to give you the ultimate sleep experience functionally and aesthetically.

The functional design and innovative weave has made Hästens blue check an icon of bedding culture and a guarantee of authentic quality. Only Hästens and its devoted master craftsmen can combine the finest natural materials with the art of bed-making. The Hästens check pattern,

In some countries, the checks are registered three-dimensionally on beds, mattresses and bed linen; giving Hästens exclusive rights to use the pattern on its products.
