Skaftö is Carpe Diem Beds’ most exclusive continental bed as well as our highest model. This is the perfect bed for those who appreciate flexibility and wish to influence their postural comfort. Skaftö’s moveable mid-section can be adjusted to your needs and features built-in back support – one of our five patented innovations. Simply press a button on the accompanying wireless remote, and Skaftö will instantly provide additional support for your lower back and hips or achieve the perfect alignment between your hips and shoulders.

Continental bed with three mattress layers

Besides its top and bottom layers of springs, Skaftö also features an additional middle layer: the X-pocket. This layer simultaneously intensifies the bed’s suspension and creates a stabilising effect. Skaftö is the optimal choice for those who wish to influence their postural comfort, who appreciate a high degree of comfort and who are looking for a bed unlike any other. Skaftö features built-in lighting that can be turned on at night to create a gentle and peaceful glow.

Patented solutions for Carpe Diem Beds

Just like all Carpe Diem Beds, Skaftö is designed to give you an ergonomic, relaxing night’s sleep that leaves you revitalised the next morning. Carpe Diem Beds has developed a unique spring system and a viscoelastic bottom segment for maximum pressure relief and sleep comfort.

Carpe Diem Beds’ Contour Pocket System

Our Contour Pocket System is a patented spring system placed just below the surface of your bed. In the Contour Pocket System, the padding materials usually placed on top of the spring system are integrated in each individual spring instead. This unique spring system ensures each spring adjusts to the shape of your body, resulting in a sleeping experience tailored just to you. This allows your muscles to unwind, leaving you to gently fall asleep in a supremely relaxed position.

Visco Elastic Bottom Layer – a viscoelastic bottom segment

In cooperation with the Spinal Unit at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg as well as with massage therapists, Carpe Diem Beds has developed a patented viscoelastic bottom segment: the Visco Elastic Bottom Layer. This unique bottom segment, located in the lower layers of your bed, ensures the most burdened springs relax instead of pushing back against your body. Our Visco Elastic Bottom Layer reduces the pressure on your body and stimulates blood circulation. This allows you to sleep undisturbed for longer stretches of time during the night, leaving you free to sink into the coveted phase of deep sleep.

Back Support – adjustable back support

Skaftö features our built-in Back Support, which is designed to allow you to make small adjustments to the way your back is supported with just the press of a button on the accompanying hand-held remote. Thanks to the moveable mid-section in the bottom of the bed, you can achieve the perfect alignment of hips and shoulders as you’re lying on your bed, allowing you to sleep and relax in an ergonomic position.

Design your own Skaftö continental bed

Skaftö comes in multiple sizes: as a single bed, double bed and king-size bed. Choose between a soft, medium or firm mattress and complement it with a mattress topper. Frame Skaftö with one of Carpe Diem Beds’ elegant headboards and elevate your bed by adding a set of legs from our extensive range. Recommended bed leg height: 13 cm. You can select a fabric and colour to have Skaftö match your interior design preferences. When you purchase a bed, you can select any one of the 16 complimentary fabrics that are part of our Classic Collection. Should you wish, you can also pick one of the 20 different fabrics in our Exclusive Collection, at an additional cost. The fabrics in Carpe Diem Beds’ Classic Collection are all Nordic Eco labelled.

Handmade in Sweden

Skaftö is made by hand in Carpe Diem Beds’ factory in Sweden. Carpe Diem Beds offers a 25-year warranty for faulty frames and/or pocket-spring breaks.
