A Bed Fit for a King
This is the ultimate perfection. The result of our centuries-long passion for craftsmanship and passion for expert bed making. Nobody in the history of mankind had ever before slept in a bed like the Hästens Vividus. Are you one of the privileged who ever will?
We gathered the most valuable insights from our 160 years of expertise in handmade bed making. We sought out the world’s best knowledge of what creates comfort and the best sleep for the human body. We searched the planet for the very finest natural materials. Then we put it all in the hands of our most skillful and experienced craftsmen. Everything is done exclusively by hand using nothing but nature’s own materials. From this comprehensive process emerged the Hästens Vividus. There is simply nothing like it in the world.
The frame is crafted with the finest knot free pine with Northern Sweden. The frame is secured in a recessed groove and secured with wooden plugs. The middle ribs are affixed using dovetailing and secured with oak dowels. It takes an experienced craftsman a week to make a Vividus frame.
The Vividus top mattress features a unique pattern of seams and filled with layers upon layers of pure cotton, wool, mohair and hand-teased horsetail hair of the highest quality the top mattress provides the highest levels of comfort.
The inside of the frame is upholstered with flax. On top of this we place the hand-joined Vividus spring system. We use flax between the springs to ensure a completely silent bed and a quilted cotton fabric of the highest quality to cover the lower section. The middle section comprises a carefully balanced mixture of hand teased horsehair, cotton and wool. We arrange the material in several thick layers and stitched together by hand, ensuring that it is all held in place. Your bed will retain its comfort and shape for a long time, giving you many nights of sound sleep.
Every Vividus is unique and Each Vividus is personalized with an engraved name plate in either brass or aluminum.
