Millbrook was founded by Walter Croll in 1946 in the Millbrook area of Southampton when he opened his small upholstery and bedding workshop. Nowadays the Millbrook craftsmanship in the Mattresses and Divan Sets has been acknowledged as being of the very highest order. There are examples of their skill in both of the Houses of Parliament, in Embassies around the world and in elegant private homes throughout Britain, Europe and the United States.
Millbrook is very much a family company, a lot of their Mattress and Divan craftsmen/women have followed their parents or grandparents into the Company. Therefore the excellence and high reputation of Millbrook is a matter of quiet personal pride and because of this Millbrook can continue to make Divan Sets/Mattresses with supreme quality and finish.
Millbrook Mattresses are upholstered to offer comfort to the sleeper – soft fillings mould to body shape and allow muscles to relax, helping to prevent restricted blood flow caused by pressure points, Millbrook’s mattresses are upholstered with loose fibres such as horse hair, lambswool, cotton and silk.
These mattresses have tufts (cords that pass through the mattress) to keep all the fibre in place, preventing migration to the edges. An indication of the quality of the mattress is if it’s ‘hand side stitched’. This is where the border is sewn to the internal spring unit by hand, helping to strengthen it and to stop the edge of the mattress bowing out. Millbrook hand side stitches in time honoured tradition, but has also developed a method of machine side stitching that is more economical for lower priced mattresses.
The size we have are 2ft6 Small Single, 3ft Single, 4ft Small Double, 4ft6 Double, 5ft King Size, 6ft Super King Size and even ‘Zip & Link’ sizes. Zip & Link means that there are two mattresses zipped together to make a whole mattress, the good thing about a ‘Zip n Link’ mattress is that each side of the bed can be completely different, for example, if someone who prefers a medium tension mattress is sleeping in the same bed as their partner who prefers a firm mattress, then a Zip & Link mattress would make this possible as one mattress can be a completely different tension to the other, creating a bed where both people are comfortable in. It also removes ‘roll together’ which means that if a heavier person is on one size of the mattress the mattress would dip in that direction. You can also pull apart
