In 1946 when Walter Croll opened his small upholstery and bedding workshop in the Millbrook area of Southampton, majestic ships from such famous lines as Cunard, P & O and Union Castle daily sailed into Southampton Water. The craftsmanship of Walter Croll’s workshop soon began to win it a growing number of orders from discerning customers, and when the Union Castle Line awarded Millbrook a contract to refurnish and carpet their entire fleet, the success of the young Company was assured.
It is very reassuring in these days of mass production, to find a company totally committed to the traditional ideals of quality and craftsmanship. Millbrook beds is the perfect reflection of these traditions highlighted in the elegance and sumptuous qualities of their bed collections. By using only the finest natural fillings such as British wool, silk, pashmina, cashmere and cotton in their mattresses, Millbrook create a mattress which is truly sumptuous and luxurious.
It has been recognised for many years that sleep in its finest form is a vital part of a healthy life, promoting well-being, both physical and mental. With the return of good craftsmanship growing, the demand for true quality is becoming more popular. Your Millbrook bed should therefore be treasured as an investment, not only for its inherent quality, but also for the luxurious comfort you will enjoy – allowing you to awaken relaxed and refreshed.
Millbrook Beds is dedicated to the traditional British ideals of quality and craftsmanship. From the hand-nesting of their individual pocketed springs, to their natural upholstery – every stage in the making of their beds must meet their own exacting standards of timeless quality.
Today, Millbrook 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, in Embassies around the world and in elegant private homes throughout Britain, Europe and the United States.
