There’ll be no need to count sheep when you visit Hästens, 100 S. Old Woodward at the corner of Maple in downtown Birmingham, a Swedish bed-making company which has been in business since 1852. The beds are handcrafted using only natural materials and with traditional methods handed down by generations to “give your bed a character and soul of its own.” According to Arielle Walters, digital marketing analyst, the Birmingham location offers mattresses, linens, duvets, pillows, robes, pajamas, down booties, and a few other smaller items. “Hästens is driven by a passion for sleep and the benefits it brings to the body and soul. A Hästens bed is defined by its comfort and support, breathability and the ability to regulate your body’s temperature while you sleep. Each natural material used in the bed has its own unique benefits, together, they give you perfect natural sleep,” Walters said. As to the choice of their new location, their first retail spot in Michigan? “We chose Birmingham to launch our new store because it is a well-know high end shopping destination in Michigan, and is a fairly central location within the metro Detroit area,” Walters said. “Additionally, our store is the largest Hästens store in the world!” There are Hästens stores in 36 countries around the world.
