In an exclusive collaboration, Savoir Beds and The National Gallery have joined forces to deliver an inspiring approach that takes art in interiors to another level. Pick a painting, any painting from over 2300 pieces of mid-13th century to 1900s art housed in The National Gallery of London, and Savoir Beds will upholster one of their luxurious models with that very piece of art.

Savoir will work closely with their design and upholstery specialists to incorporate and customize any National Gallery owned painting into the headboard and base of the bed.

Once commissioned, the design is specially printed in the UK, by Andrew Martin (who also prints custom wall coverings with paintings from the National Gallery) , using the latest technology on a selection of three fabrics – lustrous velvet, textured linen viscose and versatile cotton.

Patrick, one of Savoir’s skilled upholsterers, begins working on the Savoir headboard featuring Gherardo di Giovanni del Fora’s ‘The Combat of Love and Chastity’ from The National Gallery.

Finished with a bespoke plaque detailing the portrait and artist, every commission will be personally approved by The National Gallery to guarantee the design preserves the essence and integrity of one of the greatest art institutes in the world. The fine art of sleeping beautifully.
