Savoir Beds has unveiled the world’s most expensive model, the Royal State, which costs £113,000. Each bed is handcrafted and designed to fit the precise specifications of each client. Alistair Hughes, the company’s managing director, thinks it’s money well spent: “Now it takes close to 700 hours to build. There’s an amazing amount of skilled craftsmanship that goes into it the crest on top, which literally takes 70 hours by the same people that did Kate Middleton’s wedding dress at the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court.”
The company is planning to make just 60 of them, as a tribute to Queen Elizabeth’s time on the throne, and has even sold one already, to someone in China. Report by Jeremy Barnes.
