These Swedish proprietors have been crafting beds handmade from sustainable, natural materials like cotton, wool, flax, Swedish pine, steel and horse hair since 1852. Shoppers can even sample the beds—which have been awarded the Swedish Swan environmental certification—in private sample areas, using their own personal test pillows. The store also stocks a signature line of pillows, blankets, bedding and sleepwear.
