Good sleep is fundamental to our health and wellbeing. As life speeds up, Savoir slows down, resisting the myriad challenges to quality sleep with beds crafted to an extraordinary standard of luxury.
Beds made from completely natural materials with traditional, handcraft techniques, which stand the test of time. Savoir makes less than 1,000 beds a year because it is focussed on making the best, not the most. Skilled craftsmen work intently at individual oak trestles; 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 here, just craftsmen hand-making a bespoke bed from inception to completion. It takes three years for Savoir apprentices to learn their craft and a lifetime to perfect it.

In 1905, impresario Richard D’Oyly Carte unveiled the Savoy Hotel. Guests marvelled at ensuite bathrooms with hot and cold running water, electric lighting and ‘ascending rooms’ (we now call them lifts). With no existing bed meeting such pioneering luxury standards, D’Oyly Carte set about creating one and the Savoir No 2 is still made today. The spirit of its creation governs Savoir’s approach to every bed it creates. Savoir’s mission is to provide every customer with the most comfortable and stylish bed imaginable. The solution will be as unique as the customer’s own body and style, optimised support comes from the placement and tension of the pocket springs with a virtually unlimited choice of contemporary fabrics.
Anything that can be imagined can be made – beds for superyachts, headboards inspired by architecture, bespoke prints. Savoir collaborates with the world’s leading names in art and design from all four corners of the earth. In 2018, Savoir joined forces with The National Gallery in London to take the placement of art in interiors to another level.

The Gallery worked closely with Savoir’s design and upholstery specialists so now any painting owned by The National Gallery can adorn a Savoir bed. Additional collaborations include award-winning Hong Kong-based designer Steve Leung and creators of the world’s most beautiful wallcoverings, Fromental, along with New York and Los Angeles-based designer, Nicole Fuller. Nicole specialises in residential and commercial design projects worldwide and through the exceptional skills of Savoir’s skilled artisans, her seamless sense of luxury style and exquisite taste is masterfully translated into the STELLA bed.
