About Us | The Hypnos History | Hypnos Contract Beds

Our Story

Hypnos, the fifth generation, family-run British company, has been manufacturing luxury handmade beds using time-honoured methods for over 100 years. Combining traditional skills with constant innovation, and using the finest natural and sustainable materials, Hypnos has a reputation for making the most comfortable beds in the world.

Each Hypnos bed is a bespoke creation, individually made to order and handmade, customised to personal comfort, size, shape and styling, creating an authentic piece of exquisite furniture. A Royal Warrant from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II reinforces Hypnos' reputation for service excellence and the very best of British quality. Indeed, Hypnos doesn't just make beds for the home, our beds can be found around the world in the finest palaces, superyachts and hotels. Hypnos is proud to be the only bed manufacturer to have won the National Bed Federation's "Bed Manufacturer of the Year" three times, in 2011/12, 2014/15 and 2017/18. Hypnos also gained the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade in 2017.

Today the 'Hypnos Group' comprises Hypnos Limited, supplying beds to consumers via an international network of retailers from its workshops in Princes Risborough, and Hypnos Contract Beds Limited supplying 'Sleep Solutions' to hotels from its factory in Castle Donington, and throughout the world via a network of over 20 International manufacturing partners.

With a clear commitment to the environment and the 'Circular Economy', Hypnos focuses on sustainable design and the manufacture of beds and sofa beds that are 100% recyclable at the end of their life. Hypnos' Contract Beds factory is FSC® certified, providing the assurance that not only is the divan timber responsibly sourced, but that every stage of Hypnos' supply chain is independently monitored and audited. Hypnos is also the only bed manufacturer in the world to be carbon neutral, complying with the PAS 2060 Carbon Neutrality Standard. Hypnos has also passed the Sedex™ ethical trading audit.

Hypnos has a leading position within the hospitality industry, with a specialist hospitality sales and customer service team, in-house installation teams and a new dedicated factory, using modern production techniques to make over 100,000 hotel beds a year. Whatever the project, Hypnos takes pride in helping clients to design a range of supremely comfortable beds, providing higher levels of comfort for Suites and Penthouses, installed on time and with complete cost certainty - ultimately helping to create a safe, healthy and hygienic sleeping environment that will have a positive effect on a guest's well-being and satisfaction. Hypnos’ beds and our client’s guests and brand are also protected from the risk of fire and bed bugs.

Hypnos works in partnership with Hoteliers to help increase occupancy rates and to maximise revenue and gross profitability per room. Our zip and link beds quickly and efficiently turn a Double bedroom into a Twin bedroom; our designer sofa beds, or a divan base with a hidden extra underbed, can turn a Double bedroom into a Family bedroom. Our pillow top mattresses are 'no-turn' and help housekeepers to quickly and efficiently maintain beds.

Hypnos' partnership with Marriott extends from Marriott Vacation Club in Disneyland Paris to JW Marriott in Dubai, whilst Lenny Henry sings our praises on TV for Premier Inn.

All Hypnos' beds come with a 5 year guarantee. This enduring quality is reinforced by compliance with BS 7177: Ignition Source 5 (Crib 5) fire and flame retardant tests, which are amongst the strictest tests in the world. Hypnos is also certified by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) for the supply of marine mattresses to the cruise industry.

Hypnos also combines the elements of long lasting comfort and a memorable night's sleep with an unrivalled project management service for hassle-free solutions, from design, manufacture, delivery and installation to a disposal and recycling service for old beds, sofa beds and furniture - a low cost, green and responsible alternative to landfill.
