We understand that buying furniture can be tricky, as it's a big decision. We like to do things a little differently at Maker&Son - here are the things we can do to help you get exactly what you want for your home.

We can bring Maker&Son to you

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 toexperience 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 will come to your home at a time that suits you, bringing our wonderful furniture and samples of all our fabrics so you can really get a feel for the pieces you’re interested in. Our lovely Maker&Son expert will give you as much time as you need and will be able to answer any questions you might have about the furniture. If you’d like to book your home visit, simply click on the ‘Book a visit’ button or give us a call.

Bespoke Design

We can make our furniture to any size. The Song range has been carefully designed to be the comfiest furniture in the world – so we recommend keeping the height and depth as they are but we can work to any width. Our standard Song Sofa is 210cm wide, our Armchair is 110cm – but if you want to go longer or shorter, just ask.

Costs are calculated according to size – special orders do come at a small premium but it’s probably not as much as you think. Our lead time for standard sized furniture is up to 8 weeks – for bespoke sizes it will be between 10-12 weeks.

We have created U-shaped sofas and super-sized sofas; we’ve taken the arms off the sofa for a chaise style and we can do modular units so you can configure your furniture any way you choose.

We can use any fabric you like, as long as it’s suitable for upholstery; you’ll just need to send us a sample so we can check it out.

If you have a specific size in mind just send us the dimensions for a quick quote. If you’re not sure what will work best in your home, then our floor planning service can help.

Floor planning

It can be tricky to work out the best configuration for your furniture – maximising smaller spaces, working with odd shaped rooms or simply working out how to accommodate the needs of the whole family in one living room can be challenging.

We can help with our floor planning service. Simply send us floor plans if you have them, or simply a few photos of the room with the length and width of the space and we can create some alternate plans with different furniture configurations and relevant prices.

Meet the Founders

Alex & 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 homeware stores in Australia called Country Road. Coming back to the UK in 1995, Alex took on the role of Buying Director for the Conran Shop as well as developing a huge range of products for the Conran Collection. In 2000, he set up his own design and communications agency called The Nest, going on to found a digital business called VisualDNA in 2006. 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.
