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.
