As you make your bed, so you must lie on it – so, better make sure that bed is a Hästens. The oldest manufacturer of beds in Sweden has moved to Vienna, where it stocks the most expensive bed in the world. The Vividus is priced at €60,000: what you pay for is a perfect balance of horsehair, cotton, linen and wool; woven, stitched, cut, tacked and sewn by hand, all in accordance with the customer’s specific wishes. A unique system where each spring can move independently, making the bed particularly flexible, makes the six-month waiting period worthwhile. More affordable models start at €2,000.
