Which beds are these you ask? Wait for it… they are none other than the incredible Hästens beds from Sweden, that promise to provide the best rest you can only dream of. Never heard of them? Now is the time to learn all about them. Form has officially opened a Hästens store on Valley Road, Birkirkara, a bit further down the road from the Form showroom, so it’s easier than ever to get your very own Hästens bed.
Known as the Ferraris of the mattress world, Hästens is the chosen brand by the Swedish royal family and it recently made waves after it emerged that the world’s largest luxury cruise ship suite — the Regent Suite on the Seven Seas Splendor — will feature the Hästens’ most luxurious Vividus bed that costs €145,000.
But you don’t need to be a millionaire to invest in a bed that frees you from the shackles of fatigue and the starting price for a Hästens bed is €4,000, which when you think that this will last you for the rest of your life it amounts to the cost of an espresso a day. The advantage is that although the bed comes with a 25-year guarantee, nobody really knows how long a Hästens bed can last and the company has even stumbled upon one which has been used for over 90 years!
The Swedish bedmaker, which has been perfecting its craft since 1852, gives the assurance that its beds can change three-thirds of your life: the one-third when you are sleeping; and the two-thirds when you are feeling refreshed and awake from a good night’s sleep. Their philosophy is a simple and undisputed one — a good night’s sleep is the human body’s way of self-rejuvenating, mentally and physically. Without the ability to properly and thoroughly reset night after night, both the mind and the body will suffer.
We at Form, have been supplying quality mattresses and beds since its inception in 1947 and we felt bringing Hästens to Malta was an opportuity to take our legacy to next level.
Julian Galea, our head of sales said: “Once we were properly introduced to the Hästens world we were totally transformed and there was no going back. At Form, we have always maintained that a good mattress is one that provides proper body alignment, combined with comfort and other benefits related to health and hygiene. Hästens delivers all this and much more.
The finest natural materials are used creating layers of organic components. There’s cotton (for coolness, ventilation), wool (natural insulation properties) and flax (diverting static electricity), as well as thousands upon thousands of fine, curly (and disinfected) strands of horsehair, which behave like tiny springs to fend off moisture and assist in ventilation. It is amazing that in 2019 you can still find a global brand in a highly developed country, which does it all by hand with no rush to speed up production. Each bed only leaves once it is perfect.”
