The Herlewing sits towards the top of the Hästens range of luxurious beds, the soft, sumptuous and supportive feel is achieved with the use of 38 layers of premium materials that Hästens use to craft this beautiful bed. The unique layer-upon-layer technology transports moisture away efficiently, leaving you to rest fully relaxed in a precisely balanced sleep climate. The Herlewing is displayed in our large Hästens studio, in store within Horsham Bedding Centre – Jones and Tomlin.

The bed is composed of three main components, the base, the middle mattress, and your choice of top mattress. All of which combine to offer a level of support that leaves the competition behind!

The Herlewing base

The Herlewing base distributes your weight over the entire surface and gives the bed an almost bottomless feel. The Bonnell sprung base is generously upholstered with 1 layer of bolster fabric of outstanding durable virgin cotton, 1 layer of cotton and wool and 2 layers of flax that provides sound insulation and conducts static electricity away. The Herlewing sprung base acts as a perfect supportive platform for the middle and top mattress.

38 layers are used throughout the bed, each layer working hard to provide the perfect nights sleep. The Herlewing sits 65cm high which includes the pictured standard legs and top mattress. Hästens standard bed legs are included, or you can customize your bed with legs of your choice of legs, for an additional charge. Hästens also make a wide range of headboards, bed linen, pillows and duvets to accompany your luxurious new bed, all of which, including the beds, can be viewed on our website, and in our extensive Hästens showroom within our Horsham store just south of London, in West Sussex.

The Hästens Herlewing Middle Mattress…

The unique layer-upon-layer technology transports moisture away efficiently, leaving you to rest fully relaxed in a precisely balanced sleep climate. Two layers of virgin cotton bolster fabric, 4 layers of hand teased J horsetail hair and 12 layers of cotton and wool sit on top of a 15cm high pocket spring system designed to offer maximum support and comfort for the sleeper. Meticulously placed side-stitching is also an important feature of the mattress, side stitching increases both stability and pliability, ensuring the maximum longevity of your new Hästens bed.

The Herlewing benefits from reinforced edge springs along all sides, to prevent you from rolling out of the bed and to make it easier to get up. Four reinforced corner springs (covered in soft flax), ensure both comfort and stability when you sit on the edge of the bed and ensure added longevity to your new Hästens bed. All finished with robust handles to enable you to turn the mattress.

A choice of mattress firmness

Choose between four different levels of firmness: soft, medium, firm and extra firm. Beds 180cm wide or wider can have a different firmness level on either side, your firmness can be selected after you have chosen your size. To further enhance your comfort the bed is available with the choice of three outstanding all natural top mattresses.

Select your top mattress

The crowning glory on your Hästens bed. One simple extra that elevates your sleeping comfort to an utterly different dimension. It comes down, in part, to the additional softness. That in turn comes from highest quality natural materials and our specialist quilting techniques. We believe it is why so many describe their nights in a Hästens as drifting off — and waking up — in a cuddle. There are three choices of top mattress available.

BJ Top Mattress: Filled with cotton, wool, horsetail hair and a thick cotton core that’s soft and supple. Height: 7 cm.
BJX Top Mattress: Filled with cotton, wool and high-quality horsetail hair for extra comfort and ventilation. Height: 7 cm.
BJX Luxury Top Mattress: Filled with cotton, wool and high-quality horsetail hair that takes springiness to a new dimension. Height: 7 cm.

Choose you Hästens bed fabric

Made of 100% cotton jacquard. Suitable for Hästens beds, top mattresses, headboards, headboard covers and bed skirts. Blue Check and Silver Beige Check are always included at no extra charge. To further customise your new bed Hästens there are also supplementary fabric ranges B and C, these ranges can be viewed after selecting your desired size.


What makes the Hästens spring system great is not the number of springs but the different types, how they are placed and the way they combine with the layers of natural materials. A combination of spring dimension, height and number of coils determines the quality and properties of the spring system. This technology is precise and quite amazing. For example, the higher the number of coils, the higher the bed’s quality and the longer its life. But too many coils will affect a spring’s compression. The balance of variables is crucial when designing spring systems to achieve the optimal result. Each and every one of our spring systems is carefully calculated to provide the desired pressure relief and support needed to ensure a better sleep experience.

Breathable and naturally body temperature regulating

Few materials can match horsehair when it comes to constructing a bed. Every single curled strand of horsehair works as a tiny spring, enhancing the work of our internal spring systems, providing support and pliability. Horsehair also comes with its own extremely effective, built-in ventilation system. Each strand of horsehair acts like a miniature airway: a hollow tube with a microscopic capillary action that channels away moisture and lets fresh air in. It is so effective that if you soak horsehair with water and give it a shake, it dries almost immediately. The millions of comfortable natural micro-springs in Hästens beds transport any excess heat and moisture from your body during deep sleep. As a result you’ll fall asleep quicker and enjoy deep, uninterrupted, rejuvenating sleep at the perfect temperature. Just imagine what this does for the quality of your sleep.


All our beds are made by hand in Sweden. And, if there’s one thing Sweden knows, it’s crafting things from natural materials with our hands. When it comes to making a Hästens bed, no machine can surpass the talents and techniques used by our master craftsmen. They give it a higher dimension, building the spirit of excellence into all our beds and keeping them forever connected to the heart of Hästens.
In the right bed you will feel comfortable, rested, rejuvenated, healthy and energized. The difference is something you feel night after night after night. When you lie in your Hästens bed, imagine the caring hands that made it. It’s almost like they are there to tuck you in every night.


Some things can be measured; other can't. Anything that can be measured and tested in a Hästens bed is measured and tested: quality, durability, eco-friendliness and whether it contains any harmful substances. As evidence of quality, every Hästens is latex-free and comes with a 25-year warranty against frame and spring breakage. We are Purveyors to the Swedish Royal Court and it would be our pleasure to be your supplier as well.
