Founder’s Story

26.11.18

The idea for Maker&Son came many years ago. It was one of those ‘what if…’ moments you may have had too. You know the ones, those dreams of having a career that combines everything you love, being able to work from home and many other things as well. My doubting-self however came up with a list as long as you can imagine as to why it would never work. So, the years went by and nothing happened. There then followed some life changing events that, in combination, turned my world upside down. I found myself forced to think again about my priorities, my life and its overall direction. It was within this context that the original dream of Maker&Son finally started to take shape.

The journey to actually creating our first range of chairs and sofas really started 30 years ago. For over three decades, I have worked with teams designing hundreds of chairs and sofas for various retailers. The key thing I learned was that, not surprisingly, the bestselling sofas are always the ones that are the most comfortable. Often though, the materials needed to make a sofa or chair even more comfortable are unaffordable to the retailers which inevitably leads to compromises.

When you consider that most high end furniture retailers mark up their products by three or four times from cost, it’s hardly surprising that there is a limit to what materials can be used. Instead of trying to create a product to fit a price or specific design trend, we decided to do things differently and create a range of sofas and chairs with no compromise on the quality of any part of the product. We focused on comfort, quality and a timeless style. The result is a range of extraordinarily comfortable chairs and sofas that will last a lifetime.
