The Dream Factory

Even today, the horse in the logo and of course also the name itself – “häst” means horse in Swedish – hint towards the fact that the bed manufacture started as a saddlery in 1852. But only a short time later the young company committed itself to the high sleep culture and accompanies people across the world into sweet dreams as a global brand today.
