How Carpe Diem Beds Came to Be

Posted January 4th, 2018 in Carpe Diem, Hastens, Mattress Brands by Chris Corey


Last time we told you a little more about Swedish luxury bed maker Carpe Diem and what it’s all about. Today we’d like to tell you a little more about its history which begins with a man named Börje Thuleskär. Mister Thuleskär had dreams of becoming a chiropractor, which fueled his passion to learn more about human anatomy and physiology. As Thuleskär gained knowledge, he began to see the importance of sleeping well and how it affected the body and mind. With that in mind, Thuleskär decided to invest in a high end bed.


The bed Thuleskär bought failed to live up to his expectations. It was during an outing to the island of Kornö that Thuleskär had an epiphany of sorts, mesmerized by the beauty of the island and its natural landscape. Walking barefoot over the rocks, Thuleskär relaxed on a bed of wild heather, completely immersed in nothing but the natural sounds as the heather molded to his body shape. It was during this moment that Börje Thuleskär was inspired to create a bed focused on comfort and achieving a genuine sleep experience.


Today, Carpe Diem Mattresses of Sweden are exported to more than eleven different countries.
