Design is in the detail

How do you recognise the hallmarks of true design when you see them? The answer is to take a closer look – great design is almost always best appreciated in the details.

With a luxury Millbrook Bed, we like to think the difference in quality is apparent from near and from far. But – look closer – and you’ll see the details that we think are so important that, even in an age of advanced automation, we take care of them by hand.

Hand side stitching on our mattresses…

Every Millbrook Beds mattress features traditional hand-side stitching which secures the outer springs to the border at top and bottom preventing ‘roll-out’, and is the most highly skilled and labour intensive of all our operations.  Side-stitching is carried out by senior upholsterers using traditional long needles and twine to make borders and edges stronger.  The effects on the mattress are quite dramatic preventing the springs from distorting and extending the sleeping area right up to the edge of the bed.

Hand built divan bases…

All divans are made from solid timber to carry the weight of the sumptuous mattress and load-bearing joints are secured and glued by hand for lasting strength.  All divans are mounted on hidden smooth running solid metal casters. The drawers come complete with unique, smooth ball-bearing steel action runners.

Millbrook Beds; because design is in the detail.
