As Seen In... Country & Town House

The Most Luxurious Beds in the World

What price would you put on a good night’s sleep? On average, we spend a third of our lives in bed, so finding the right one is important. Country & Town House included the Savoir No 1 within a round up of the most luxurious beds available in the UK.


The difference a good night’s sleep on a handmade, properly constructed bed can make to how you face the day ahead is huge. Knowing this, The Savoy Hotel decided in 1905 to create the perfect bed for its guests, and what is now called the No2 bed was born, a bed as famous as some of the legendary names who have slept in them.

Every Savoir bed contains the finest, chemical-free natural materials, from long, curled Latin American horsetail to Mongolian cashmere and British lamb’s wool, and each is designed to provide the perfect sleeping environment. The curled horsetail hair regulates body temperature to optimise the quality for your REM sleep, wicking away from the body the three-quarters of a pint of moisture each of us produces every night, and the hand-tied hourglass springs give the perfect support.


Referred to as the ‘world’s most luxurious sleeping system’, Savoir No 1 promises the ultimate in comfort and luxury. With taller springs and lavish layers of premium-quality natural filling for a deeper mattress and base, it is a naturally high bed that customers reportedly compare sleeping on to ‘floating in a cloud’.


The ultimate luxury item, it takes over 120 to craft a No 1, 80 hours of a master craftsperson’s time on the upholster floor plus the hours our cutter, seamstress and joiner invest in the creation of the bed.

Its frame of hardwood beech has several unique features, such as dovetail joints, Macassar ebony trim, suede upholstery and flexible, hand-tied cane edge. The latter, combined with a generous 2” hair roll with two rows of hand-stitching, give added structure and support the edge. The mattress, topped with a panes of high-tech stretch cotton fabric, is filled with extra deep, high-turn pocket springs, masses of loose, curled horse-tail hair and double layers of carded lambswool. This is topped off with a kilo of pure cashmere included in the topper.

Each bed is hand crafted by a single craftsperson, as well as being fully customisable, the mattress, box-spring and topper is signed by the person who makes it.
