Millbrook beds – The History began in 1946 when Walter Croll opened a small upholstery and bedding workshop in the Millbrook area of Southampton where majestic ships from such famous lines as Cunard, P&O and Union Castle sailed into Southampton Water. The superb interiors of these vessels, which had made Britain's passenger fleet a byword for luxury and elegance, demanded the highest standard of workmanship. 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. Through the years Millbrook has continued to grow and prosper, using the skills employed on the luxury liners to create an ever-growing range of luxurious, high-quality furniture and achieving an enviable reputation - both in finest retail stores and among a widening circle of discerning contract customers. 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. In addition, millions of people have unknowingly seen Millbrook craftsmanship on their television on programmes produced by TVS such as the "Ruth Rendell" mysteries. Amongst their many diverse skills Millbrook have restored antiques on display in such diverse places as Sterling Castle and Osborne House, created an artificial “Aladdin’s Cave” for a Middle Eastern Sheikh and more recently completed major work in Downing Street.
