The Vividus springs are strung together with string in the traditional way rather than being clipped together, “which means they move differently and have a slightly different feel,” says Newell. Flax is added between the springs to ensure a completely silent bed, too.

And, finally, the distinctive checked Hästens upholstery is, he says, a matter of pride for its customers. “In Sweden, if your guest sees a blue and-white-checked bed in your house, they know you’re a person with taste and refinement who understands Swedishness and hand-built quality.”

The mattress itself is made of alternating layers of steel springs, soundproof flax, cotton, wool, and horsehair. The horsehair is treated with special care, and is braided then un-braided to create a signature bounce in the mattress. The process involves quite a bit of science.
