Sleeping solutions with passion


Sleeping solutions with passion

We have high standards. Do you?

Life is diverse and demanding. It is constantly changing and demands flexibility, today more than ever. That’s why you long for a place to relax. That’s why you shouldn’t compromise when furnishing your bedroom.
As passionate sleep experts, with high quality standards, we strive to improve your quality of life and well-being through unique sleeping solutions. Down-to-earth things such as craftsmanship, sustainability and aesthetics are a matter of course for us.

Cleverly thought out and perfectly finished

You don’t like an off-the-peg bed? Perfectly. Because with us you get a made-to-measure suit that tells its very own story. Sleeping solutions from RUF I Betten are unmistakable originals that combine aesthetics, innovation and comfort. To this end, we at RUF | Betten offer you numerous models in various comfort versions that are as individual as you are.

Design that works

The proportions, appearance and functionality of a bed must be in harmony. Designing a beautiful piece of furniture is easy. But to also convince functionally – this is where true design art is hidden. For us, functionality means creating sleeping solutions that envelop you, support you, embrace you or simply carry you on their hands. Comfort that is perfectly tailored to you and your habits. So exclusive expert knowledge, craftsmanship and creative passion go into every one of our beds.

Consciously focused on quality

Quality and sustainability are particularly important to us, because we see our sleeping solutions as a contemporary expression of high sleep culture that should accompany you for a long time. That’s why we at RUF | Betten set ourselves high standards. We are self-confident about our location in Rastatt and therefore about responsible production “Made in Germany”, which helps us to sustainably protect the environment and resources. As a climate-neutral furniture manufacturer, tested, certified and awarded, we proudly present our seal of quality to give you the assurance that you are getting the best.

Choose a bed that makes you happy

We want our beds to be an inspiring home for body, mind and soul. A place of well-being which, as an individual expression of personality, is the deserved reward for a life full of demands. A place of well-being where you benefit in terms of quality of life and sleep. Quality we have been proud of since our founding by Albin Ruf.

Every bed tells a story

At RUFBetten, we want you to sleep well. We also understand the importance of a comforting atmosphere in the bedroom: after all, this is the ideal place to recharge your physical and mental energies so that you are fit to face the hectic routine and the stresses of work – or simply to unwind at the end of a demanding day. Our task is to supply you with the upholstered or box spring bed to make your bedroom perfect.

We devote all of our energies and experience to making your personal dream bed, thereby focusing on what matters most – quality to enhance your life and delight your senses. Our dedication to the genuine and the valuable shines through at every stage of production, while responsible manufacturing – to Made in Germany standards – helps to protect the environment and conserve resources. Outstanding designs give rise to timeless beauty, innovative ideas enrich both days and nights. Each one of our beds is filled with exclusive expertise, craftsmanship and creative passion – and has been since the day Albin Ruf established – RUFBetten in 1926.
