Sleep well, and your waking life – the vital two thirds of your lifetime – can be physically active and mentally energetic. Sleep badly, and you never catch up on the day. The difference a handmade, properly constructed bed can make is remarkable. Knowing this, The Savoy Hotel decided in 1905 to create the perfect bed for its guests, and what is now known as the Savoir ‘No2 bed’ was born.
Good sleep is fundamental to our health and wellbeing. As life speeds up, Savoir slows down, resisting the myriad challenges to quality sleep with extraordinary beds. Made from completely natural materials with traditional, handcraft techniques, these are beds which stand the test of time. Savoir make fewer than 1,000 beds a year because it is focused on making the best, not the most.
The Savoir story began in The Savoy Hotel, when in 1905 impresario Richard D’Oyly Carte unveiled an establishment revered for its luxurious creature comforts and legendary services. With no bed meeting his pioneering luxury standards, D’Oyly Carte set about creating one. The result is still made today, Savoir N°2 (the Icon) and the spirit of its creation governs Savoir’s approach to every bed it creates.
Skilled craftsmen work intently at individual oak trestle tables; the tapping of tacks, material in motion and calm conversation between colleagues. These are the Savoir Bedworks in West London and Wales, the antithesis of a production line. There are no hulking machines, just craftsmen hand-making a bespoke
bed from inception to completion. Every bed is bespoke, from custom comfort to design details, made and signed by one master craftsman for one customer.
With 15 global showrooms, from London to New York, Paris to Shanghai, Savoir’s mission is to provide every customer with the most comfortable and stylish bed imaginable. From the required support to the style of the home, dimensions, materials and fabrics can all be personalised. Beds for superyachts, headboards inspired by architecture and bespoke prints; anything that can be imagined can be made.
