Founded in 1852, Hästens is Sweden’s oldest manufacturer of beds.
They started out primarily making saddles and carriage furniture. The main filling material used for saddles at the time was horsehair, and already back then it was common knowledge that it also provided the best possible filling material for mattresses.
The saddle makers at Hästens at first only manufactured beds by special request. But demand soon increased at such rate that making beds quickly became the main business.
Today Hästens retail stores sell a full range of some of the most luxurious beds in the world, along with branded premium bed linens, pillows, duvets and accessories.
