Slide

Sliding is fun.  Why else is sliding associated with some of our favourite pastimes. As kids, who didn’t love the big slide at the playground? And a love of sliding sees millions of people pack up skis and snowboards and fly off in search of snow each winter, or stay home with their sledges and...

However, because our bodies’ inability to regulate...

Serendipity

This year, Millbrook Beds proudly celebrates 75 years in the business of crafting quality furnishings. And, if the definition of serendipity is when one accidentally finds something good, then we’d have to say that 75 years ago marked the beginnings of a serendipitous journey for Millbrook Beds. Because good things have indeed happened.  We’ve not...
