Hästens Vividus Mattress


The exquisite craftsmanship of a true master. The finest materials Mother Nature has to offer. Generations of experience. All culminating in the perfect sleep experience.

Hailed as the finest mattress that can be found, the Vividus from Hästens features attention to such details as swallow-tail joints, hand measurement of the correct position of the holding dimples, side stitching of the mattress to increase stability, and hand-flailed horsehair to make sure the bed maintains its comfort and shape for a long time.

If all this sounds like it will destine you to the perfect night's sleep, you may want to check the price tag first, lest the nightmares of how to pay for it defeat any benefit the mattress may offer: $60,000!!! Since that price tag would put the bed payment somewhere in between the car payment and the mortgage payment for most folks, it’s not hard to understand why the Swedish manufacturer has only sold approximately 30 units since introducing the Vividus in the U.S. last year.

Perhaps Hästens’ flagship bed is worth almost 100 times what the average bed costs. If any Internet moguls or royals are reading, please let us know.

One last thought… I have to wonder if the Vividus comes with the ubiquitous tags that are never to be removed.
