Founded 20 years ago on the Swedish west coast by Börje Thuleskär, Carpe Diem Beds envisioned a sleeping experience that would reflect the feeling and freedom lying on a bed of heather, enveloped by nature. Börje had a professional background as a chiropractor with previous studies in psychology and recognized the importance of sleeping well to live a healthy life, both mentally and physically. This paved the way for Carpe Diem Beds: to create a bed so comfortable that anyone who slept in it would know the difference between sleep and sleep.
Customers will be able to customise their beds, headboards, and decorative pillows with fabrics in collaboration with Designers Guild and ROMO Group as well as choose from a wide variety of bed legs to create an entirely bespoke bed. The Wigmore Street store is complemented by its e-commerce site where customers across the UK can have a complete brand and product experience. The brand currently ships to 15 countries worldwide.
