Closely examine any piece of Millbrook Bedding and you will immediately see that throughout the years both material and workmanship have remained as high as ever.
Walter Croll opened his small upholstery and bedding workshop in the Millbrook area of Southampton in 1946 as the majestic ships from Cunard, P&O and Union-Castle shipping lines sailed into Southampton Water. When the Union-Castle Line awarded his workshop a contract to refurnish and carpet its entire fleet, the success of the young company was assured. It also marked the beginning of a tradition of superior craftsmanship – a tradition that’s evident in every mattress, divan base and headboard that Millbrook Beds makes today.
Made only by the most skilled of craftspeople, beds feature the highest quality natural materials. Divan bases are made of solid timber, and mattresses are filled with beautiful Hampshire wool and feature a careful arrangement of individually pocketed and hand sewn springs for the perfect balance of comfort and support.
Millbrook mattresses and divans are meticulously hand-crafted to enhance their individual character. The finest materials are used to ensure the greatest comfort and traditional hand-finishing helps extend the life of the bed. Overall, a “rightness” of design, avoiding both the fussy, or whimsically fashionable, and yet offering the highest standards in visual appeal makes each Millbrook bed a classic to treasure and enjoy for many years.
