Hastens - Our Principle
Image of Hastens Bed
There is nothing superfluous in your Hastens.
Apart from the nameplate, perhaps. As you may have guessed, we are sticklers for detail. Each of which must have a reason for being. Otherwise, we do not incorporate it. That's because our beds are not design objects. Form must follow function. And at Hestens our only function is to contribute to your sleep comfort for a more wakeful day. It's crazy how many things there are to attend to, assess, improve and then ponder about a bit more. For example, the direction of the scales in the wool fiber, the elasticity of the cotton threads, the pre-tension on the steel springs, the growth rate of the pine, and the degree of curliness of the horsetail hairs, to name a few of the most obvious considerations. All of which begs the question of how a little brass plaque with your name on it contributes. It's there to remind you that you have a bed where not a single detail is superfluous, apart from the nameplate itself.
THOUSANDS OF BUILT-IN REASONS WHY. SOME EXAMPLES:
THE REASON WHY THERE IS ONLY A SINGLE THREAD IN THE SIDE-STITCHING:
Not because we are miserly, but because we are precise. When the same strong thread runs through the entire mattress -or at least along a whole side of very large mattresses -it makes the tension even, and the stability well-balanced.
THE REASON WHY THE MATTRESS CORNERS AND EDGES ARE EXTRA STABLE:
Because your bed is also used as a chair. Strengthening the corner and edge springs makes it easier to sit. lie down, and get up again.
