We all know that a good night’s sleep is priceless. But, in this case, Swedish manufacturer Hästens estimates that it is $149,900, the price you have to pay if you decide to buy their Vividus bed.
“Vividus is the ultimate perfection. The luxury bed of luxury beds.” According to the company which is based in Köping, Sweden, Vividus is the world’s most incredible bed. This bed is a showcase of the finest natural materials, painstaking traditional handcraft and detailing. And to experience the Vividus sleep is like touching a dream.
At first glance, it looks so ordinary. There’s no LCD TV, no massage device, a device for cooling or heating, not even lighting. But, each bed is custom made for over 320 hours by just four master artisans and takes a minimum of 10 weeks before delivery.
It starts out with a wooden frame cut in northern Swedish pine, with a box spring housing multiple steel springs and several layers of flax for soundproofing right on top of it.
Above that is the mattress, which holds more springs, layers of cotton and wool batting, and horsehair lining. The horsehair is braided and unbraided by hand and acts as a miniature airway to wick moisture away so there’s no sweat buildup.
A bed like Vividus can only be truly experienced in person at a limited number of exclusive locations. During your private, VIP experience you’ll be guided through Vividus’ construction, your personalised options and immerse yourself in its tranquilty.
