Hastens handcrafted beds and mattresses rule the roost when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep – the venerable Swedish company has been making mattresses, boxsprings and bedding since 1852, when it first got its start as a saddlemaker. The Hästens secret is an all-natural one: mattresses stuffed with horsehair, which, as a hollow natural fiber, essentially functions as nature’s air conditioner. It’s perfect to sleep on, since the human body sweats out roughly a pint a night, and a horsehair mattress wicks the moisture away. Hastens’s reputation as a maker of luxury beds is due in part to the fact that each of these equine beauties takes 160 man-hours of master craftsmanship to build, stuff and sew – that, and the fact that the Hästens makes the $60,000 Vividus, often for sale as “the world’s most expensive bed” and sleeper of choice for Tom Cruise and other A-listers and royalty -- like His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden. Much of the brand’s beds, mattresses and bedding come wrapped in the venerable brand’s unmistakeable wide-checked gingham fabric, which is as timeless as the beds are long-lasting. Hästens is near-evangelical about the benefits of a comfy night’s sleep – and so are the people who choose to sleep on a Hästens bed!
