Furniture design that puts comfort first.

Maker & Son, a new luxury furniture company launched last year in West Sussex, has a vision to create beautiful furniture crafted from natural materials.

With a loyal celebrity fan base such as Ellie Goulding, Maker & Son create furniture designed to last a lifetime.

Meet the founders: Alex and Felix

Alex trained as a cabinet maker and furniture designer back in the early 1980s. He started his retail career running a chain of 27 home ware stores in Australia called Country Road. Coming back to the UK in 1995, Alex worked as a buying director for the Conran Shop and developed products for the Conran Collection. In 2000, he set up his own design and communications agency called The Nest. With Maker&Son, Alex is returning to his design roots and his love of creativity in all its forms.

Felix is a designer and artist working across an array of disciplines including fashion, painting, pottery, cooking, and furniture design. Felix is proud of his design heritage, being the third generation of the Conran family to work in the field. His grandfather pioneered a new era in retailing home products, a family tradition that he is continuing with Maker&Son.

“The comfiest in the world”

With over three decades of experience designing furniture, Maker & Son understand that pieces that are comfortable are key. 

Burn-out is real. Finding time to relax both the body and mind can be difficult. Maker & Son look to encourage the ultimate relaxation whilst fitting in with the style and decor of any given interior setting.

Using traditional techniques and unparalleled skills, a small team of experts make each piece of furniture. Each design takes time. 

“The comfiest in the world” are the Song Sofa and Armchair. Each Design is crafted to any required size.

From L-shaped to super-sized sofas, Maker & Son have also taken arms off certain designs to create a chaise style and also offer modular units for unique configuration.

More than furniture

Ensuring each of their bespoke designs is perfectly suited to the rooms they reside in, Maker & Son are dedicated to maximising the room configuration for each of their clients. From making the best out of smaller spaces, less conventional and odd shaped rooms to working out how to accommodate the needs of the whole family in one living room.

With over 30 years of furniture design experience, Maker & Son’s expertise today also extends to interior design advice. They offer tailored inspiration and advice on colour schemes and fabric choices as part of creating a new look for a space with a genuine passion for design.
