Luxury bed maker Hästens with headquarters in Köping, Sweden, has added two continental–style beds to its product lineup. Each has a three–part construction—an innerspring base, mattress and removable topper. All beds are constructed and sewn by hand.
The Hästens Proferia uses a unique layering method in the coil–on–coil base, in which horsehair fiber is divided into several thin layers, with membranes of cotton or wool placed in between.
The construction allows the springy horsehair greater room to move and provides increased comfort, the company said.
The mattress contains a pocket spring system, as well as 10 layers of cotton and New Zealand wool. It has a suggested retail price of $23,640 for a king–size set.
The Hästens Auroria has a similar construction, but a thinner profile with fewer layers.
The base contains a Bonnell coil spring unit. The mattress has a pocketed spring system and layers of natural cotton, wool and horsehair. It retails for $16,500 in king.
