Everything we do at Maker&Son is focused on how to do things in the very best way we can, and our service is a big part of this. We want to make the process of choosing your furniture as easy and enjoyable as possible; we created our Mobile Showrooms so that we can bring a little piece of Maker&Son directly to you.
Discover the magic of Kemps House, the emotional and physical heart of our Maker&Son. Take a glimpse inside this centuries-old home as Alex Willcock, founder of Maker&Son, shares why its innate comfort, family memories, and heart-warming rooms inspire him. Every day Alex and Felix pour their incredible knowledge and care into making future family heirlooms that are as timeless and comfortable as Kemps House.
We believe that to be truly comfortable with your sofa, you need both physical and emotional comfort. The latter comes from the knowledge that you are buying a sofa that will last a lifetime and that has been responsibly sourced and made from natural materials by local craftspeople who are well rewarded for their skills.
All of our furniture is handmade with love in the UK. We begin with sustainably-sourced hardwood frames which, together with individually coiled springs and entirely natural materials, are designed to support you brilliantly throughout your lifetime. Paired with our easily removeable, washable covers and the most heavenly cushions in the fabric and colour of your dreams to ensure that you always sink into absolute comfort.
Alex Willcock and Felix Conran are the father-and-son team behind the direct-to-consumer furniture brand Maker & Son. Founded in the UK in 2018, the company has grown quickly with an unorthodox approach. Its core product is a pillowy sofa that retails for over $10,000, and rather than brick-and-mortar showrooms, Maker & Son relies on a fleet of decorated vans that will visit potential customers in person.

To sit in our chairs is to experience a level of comfort that is hard to describe – the best way for you to understand just how good it feels is to experience it for yourself. We don't have traditional showrooms so we have come up with a different way for you to experience our chairs…. our lovely Mobile Showrooms.
We started Maker&Son with a simple dream - to create beautiful things from natural materials that make a positive difference to people’s lives and that will last forever. Maker&Son is a family run business with a dedicated team of wonderful people who are all completely committed to delivering your perfect furniture.
