About CBH Wood Furniture
Knowledge & Experience:
CBH Wood Furniture was launched in Canada in 2001 by Balthasar Huesler, in partnership with Horst Haueisen but these two associates have a great deal of experience with bed and mattress design in Europe and Asia. During its first nine years of operation, CBH Wood was manufacturing entirely for export. High-quality wood was manufactured and shipped to Switzerland where it was assembled into the Huesler Nest which was first developed in the 1970-1980s. Setting out to improve on his original design and incorporating over 30 years of experience, in 2010, Balthasar and Horst, completed the first prototype of the bed which they later called the "Balancer - Das Original" (English: Balancer - The Original). Following a few more years of fine-tuning the Balancer – Das Original was completed in 2015, which is a bed system with a flippable (dual comfort) mattress and a sleeping system which is innovative, unique, and robust. The “Tri-Slat” slat system, consisting of wooden slats in conjunction with the supportive latex strips, is placed on a solid wooden frame. It is an original design which allows for dynamic adjustments of the support/comfort functions of the bed due to body’s weight, shape, and various sleeping positions, thus promoting adequate spinal and joint alignment. The system’s design has the capacity to accommodate a wider range of individual sleeping positions and needs. CBH Wood Furniture’s two main products are the home and the road version of the Balancer - Das Original:
(8") Balancer ~ Das Original ~ bed for the home (21.5”) Total System height (frame + mattress + topper) The Bed & Mattress system has three modules:

As a small intro to who we are:
We are a small family owned business located on the east coast of Canada. We moved to Canada from Germany in 2007 and have been involved with these Swiss designed beds ever since. My father is a carpenter who earned his mastery in carpentry in Germany and worked in the field for over 30 years now. I am a civil engineer working in Toronto and am helping out my dad with all the online work, retail, advertising, customer care, etc . Our beds are quiet different from the conventional mattress / box spring combination and purposely so. The inventor (and family friend of ours) Balthasar Huesler designed this bed system when he was diagnosed with chronic lower back pain in his 40s. Today he is 87 years old and still back pain free, simply by sleeping on a bed that properly supports the spine. Many people in Europe and Asia have found the same relieve and since 2015 this bed is now also available in North America.

I visited Hendrik from CBH today. I was happy to hear I could see and try one of their Mattress systems in Toronto. I was a little put of when I arrived and it was actually his home. (they are based out of New Brunswick) I was immediately at ease once I met Hendrik and saw his passion and knowledge of his product. The bed was like nothing else I have ever seen before. While the price tag of a King bed is a little out of my price range, I feel the need to sleep on this bed and am considering spending more to make it happen.

If I end up purchasing I will leave another note with my experience, but I felt the need to share the positive experience I had with Hendrik and the Mattress System.

Hi nmon,
It was a pleasure to meet you and thank you for your kind words. I get that the having a showroom in a home is a bit unconventional, but at then end of the day it has a very positive effect on the price of our beds. In the meantime please don't hesitate to ask any other questions that you may have.

We wanted to upgrade our non-supportive queen mattress and also size up to a king mattress. After a lot of research, finding an older post on here about CBH wood furniture and trying out some mattresses, we ended up ordering a king sized bed from CBH wood furniture (Swiss dream bed). We have had it for 3 weeks and have no complaints. The ordering and delivery was very easy and quicker than expected.
We chose them because we wanted a Canadian company and I liked the idea that it would be easier to move this bed vs other king sized latex mattresses. We also liked that it is a complete bed system and that we wouldn't have to worry about finding a suitable base/bed frame for a latex mattress. So far, we are very happy with our purchase!

Hey Beee,

Thanks for the update on your Swiss Dream Bed, we are not surprised at you like the high quality of the base and latex. And yes many people do like to buy a bed system, and knowing the origins of this product, this really is a great "bed system". Glad you are far.

Thanks again
