Expanding the number of retail touch-points through 2014 helped luxury Swedish brand Hästens Beds to high top line growth last year.


The company said new showrooms across Europe — in locations spanning Hamburg and Frankfurt in Germany to Antwerp and Brussels in Belgium — contributed to 15 per cent sales growth last year.


Revenue for the Köping based bed manufacturer reached 442m Swedish Kroner, equivalent to £34.2m at today’s exchange rates.
