Millbrook Beds – A history of luxury and reputation
In 1946 a small upholstery and bedding workshop opened in the Millbrook area of Southampton. Majestic ships sailed constantly into Southampton and furnishing their superb, luxurious and elegant interiors demanded the highest standard of workmanship. The craftsmanship of this new workshop soon began to win it a growing number of orders from discerning customers and year by year the Company continued to grow and prosper, using the skills employed on the luxury liners to create an ever-growing range of luxurious, high-quality furniture. In this way the business acquired an enviable reputation for its craftsmanship and is now acknowledged as being of the very highest order.
Millbrook Beds today
Millbrook is a family business and many of its skilled mattress and divan makers and seamstresses have followed their parents or grandparents into the Company. To everyone in the company, the excellence and high reputation of Millbrook Beds is a matter of quiet personal pride and it is perhaps this, more than any other factor, that results in the supreme quality and finish of each piece of Millbrook furniture.
All of Millbrook Beds divans are constructed using timber from FSC certified forests and they use British Wool in their mattresses, particularly Hampshire Wool which is fuller and bulkier than sheep reared in other parts of the Country.
Millbrook Beds' craftsmanship in both bedding and upholstery is acknowledged as being of the very highest order and examples of their skill can be seen and admired in both Houses of Parliament and in Embassies around the world.
The company has adopted a zero tolerance to modern slavery and is fully committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all its business dealings and relationships.
Millbrook Beds Craftmanship
Throughout the years the standards of both material and workmanship have remained as high as ever. Their mattresses and divans are meticulously hand-crafted to enhance their individual character. The finest materials are used to ensure the greatest comfort, whilst 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.
Millbrook Beds mattresses are made using individually hand-nested pocket springs, which will offer your spine and body ultimate support. The finest of the spring systems, these individual springs move independently of each other, eliminating roll together and relieving pressure points all over the body, enabling your muscles to truly relax. All Millbrook Beds mattresses are available in a choice of comfort options designed to create the ultimate sleep luxury for you.
In addition, the unique Millbrook Beds designed Zonal Edge Spring System presents two rows of firmer springs around the edge of all mattresses ensuring support while sitting on the edge. The range brings together sumptuous natural fillings all encased in an Egyptian cotton cover, hand tufted and hand side stitched.
All divans are made from solid timber to carry the weight of the sumptuous mattress and load-bearing joints are secured and glued by hand for lasting strength. All divans are mounted on hidden smooth-running solid metal castors and you may choose to add drawers which come complete with unique, smooth ball-bearing steel action runners.
