Household Swedish name Carpe Diem Beds are dedicated to ‘optimising the bedroom environment to create an oasis of calm’Carpe Diem Beds is a name associated with the ultimate in sleep comfort. The brand is highly passionate about providing a good nights sleep, having patented a mattress specially designed by a chiropractor and a team of medical experts.
An uncomfortable night can be all too familiar. You decide to go to bed at a reasonable hour and head to bed with heavy eyes, only to wake up feeling less than refreshed. A comfortable mattress is essential for any sleep, and this is something that is at the very heart of the company’s ethos.
New to the UK, Carpe Diem Beds opened a showroom on Wigmore Street last year. Alongside comfort, there’s also a strong focus on design and streamlining, so the bed you choose can be housed in an environment that’s conductive to optimum sleep health. For the UK market, Carpe Diem Beds have released 36 different Designers Guild fabrics for beds and headboards that can be colour matched with carpets, cushions and curtains. Manager Rui Franca explains ‘In selecting the fabrics we look at colours that are neutral and subtle. Bright colours are energising and we need to be relaxed in the bedroom, so there are no oranges or shiny finishes. It’s all about neutral tones, which are adopted in Scandinavian design to create a sense of calm in the mind’.
The Wigmore street branch also stocks side tables and lamps, with chrome and marble finishes available, ensuring a minimalist yet luxurious final look. To accompany the final design, you can match your new bedroom with lifestyle products such as kimonos, slippers and candles. Do you live with a four legged friend? No problem. The company has recently introduced a range of dog beds to their collection, so your pooch can sleep in comfort.
On the perfect nights sleep, Rui says ‘there’s a widespread misconception that a firm mattress is better for you…but we believe that you should sleep in the bed, not on the bed, and our contour pocket system is meant to contour your body so that you feel you’re sleeping on a cloud’.
If you are constantly searching for the perfect night’s sleep, the answer is clear: Carpe Diem Beds, neutral tones, a well ventilated room and no phone. You can thank us later. Sweet dreams.
