Bernadotte & Kylberg

The Blue check, Remixed.

To quote the internationally recognized design duo: “Hästens’ blue check is iconic. You just can’t refuse when you’re the first people ever asked to reinterpret it. For us it’s a great honor, but also a great responsibility.”

Bernadotte & Kylberg’s philosophy aligns perfectly with that of Hästens. We are driven to create beds that last. They are driven to create iconic design that lasts, always keeping function and the end-user in focus.

“Our departure point was what we ourselves associate most with Hästens: a total unwillingness to compromise when it comes to quality and detail. Design is so much more than color and shape – it also has to do with sustainability: creating timeless products of high quality in a well-thought-out way.”

In 2017 we launched the two first results of our companionship of souls: the Marwari and Appaloosa beds – sophisticated interpretations of the blue check. Their designs both pays homage to our heritage as master saddle-makers and propels our blue check to a level of contemporary art.

Now it’s time for the next masterpieces. Specifically created to match and enhance the impressive characters of Marwari and Appaloosa, these Swedish-made bed benches and nightstands effortlessly complement all our beds. Exquisite craftsmanship and absolute dedication to quality mean these pieces excel in both beauty and function.

Appaloosa bed

When we first introduced Hästens 2000T series and our checkered fabric, we pushed the boundaries of our bed design. Today, our blue-check pattern has become the symbol of Hästens excellence around the world. So, what’s next? Push that boundary one step further, of course.
