Maker&Son Brings Nap-Worthy Seating to the U.S.
Founded in 2018 by design entrepreneur Alex Willcock and his son, Felix Conran (grandchild of the late Sir Terence Conran), U.K.-based Maker&Son now brings its nap-worthy seating to the U.S. The company has mobile showrooms—vans outfitted with its pillowy seats for testing—plus brick-and-mortar outposts in both the family’s 17th-century West Sussex home and in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood. All pieces are manufactured locally to where they are sold: Yorkshire, Derbyshire, and East Sussex for the U.K. market and North Carolina in the U.S. The sectionals, sofas, et al.—including plush Song—are more like beds than standard seating, with solid hardwood frames, coiled-spring bases (akin to a mattress), feathery memory-foam-core cushions, and removable covers in fabrics like English Mustard corduroy and Teal velvet.
