Hastens Beds at the Nordic Light hotel


Dear Shaded Viewers,

I’m ready for my Lost in Translation Bill Murray moment, if Hastens beds wants an endorsement, I’m just back from my brief stay at the Nordic Light hotel in Stockholm and I am wondering if I will ever sleep as well again, that is until I have my own Hastens Bed. Hastens was founded in 1852 and is the oldest luxury manufacturer of beds in Sweden. The beds are made using horsehair, cotton, flax and wool. It was awarded the prize by King Carl Gustaf after the jury appointed by the Swedish Trade Council ruled that its international sales figures made it an example of Swedish export success. All I can say is it is the best nights sleep that I’ve ever had.
