If the kitchen is the heart of the home, then the bedroom is the soul – and what better way to nourish your soul than with a good night’s sleep – something which is best achieved when you have a bed by Hästens. With many of us now living and working in bed more than ever before, we’re dreaming of getting in some extra sweet dreams, and this Swedish luxury bed maker is the mattress that dreams are made of.

With a price tag of $400K, this luxe piece, which is handcrafted by only four craftsmen, take sweet dreams to a whole new dimension. Some might call this partnership a match made in mattress heaven.

Hästens, which start in the price range of $10,000, might be considered the ultimate luxury, but according to Linus Adolfsson, the founder of The Sleep Spa, which currently has locations in Beverly Hills and Manhattan, a Hastens is the most essential part of the home.
“You can spend six to ten hours a night in your bed and still not feel refreshed. People come to our stores to learn about sleep, and we love to educate them. The three pillars of staying healthy and boosting your immune system are exercise, diet and sleep. Getting enough sleep is crucial. It will help you eat and digest differently, and overall your body will recover more.”
Now more than ever, keeping your immune system strong is a top priority, and a restful night’s sleep is a major key component. When it comes to schooling others on sleep, Swedish-born Linus is the leader. “Americans don’t have a tradition of understanding the value of sleep. In Sweden, investing in your bed shows that you value your health and well-being. It is not considered a luxury item. Also, people think that if they fall asleep they are automatically getting a proper rest, but just because you are sleeping doesn’t mean that you are getting the most beneficial type of sleep, or deep sleep, regardless of how many hours of sleep you get in.”
The Sleep Spa also collaborates with sleep tracker Oura Ring in order to keep track of their sleeping subjects heart rates. After all, if you’re not going through the best sleep cycles, you will still wake up exhausted. The Sleep Spa aims to teach customers about support and body alignment. Depending on body type, the experts will select one of their five different models, featuring everything from soft to extra firm. With a Hästens. the main difference between the mattress types is the thickness in steel and layers of horse hair. During your consultation – which can be done virtually at the moment – they’ll tell you which level of softness you want, not the other way around! Often times, people are making a decision about a mattress that they know nothing about, but Linus and his Sleep Spa are setting the record straight. Each mattress also comes with a lifelong commitment and lasting relationship with the Sleep Spa team. Made with breathable horse hair rather than latex, foam and chemicals which can be found in most other mattresses, you can rest assured – literally – that you won’t sweat at night or have to worry about mold or dust mites creeping in.
Let’s just say that you’ll sleep well knowing that Hastens, the official bed maker of the king of Sweden, will make your days at home even homier. You can also order their posh pillows, bootie slippers, pajamas, eye masks and quarantine packages that will keep you looking stylish in seclusion.
