To support Savoir Beds ambition to provide the world’s best sleep.
Over the past decade we have set out to transform the perception of a traditionally unglamorous object, which people begrudge spending much money on, into something so infinitely desirable they will spend in excess of£125,000 on a good night’s rest.
Celebrating the craftsmanship, luxury and sheer glamour which underpins everything Savoir is about, we have worked on a variety of themes and projects which have had a direct impact on sales, including coverage in the Daily Mail which generated £250,000 of sales the day after publication.
Since we started working with Savoir they have grown from two employees with a sewing machine in to global luxury brand with showrooms around the world – a success story which we’d like to think good media relations has helped to tell.

The Daily Mail Online (the world’s second largest media outlet) ran these two online features, which included embedded film footage of Savoir’s craftsmen working their magic. The blogosphere went into orbit – the first piece inspired the Kardashian’s to splurge a reported $1million on six beds after they read about their existence.
