Founded in 2018, Maker&Son is a designer of Luxury and extraordinarily comfortable sofas and furniture that are handmade locally using natural materials. Home to an iconic collection of distinctive and stylish furniture, Maker&Son is best known for producing ‘The World’s Most Comfortable Sofas’.  

The Maker&Son brand was started with a simple dream – to create beautiful things from natural materials that make a positive difference in people’s lives. They ensured to make it their mission to help bring people and families together and shape the way we enjoy our living spaces.  

Back in August 2022, Maker&Son was purchased in a ‘Multi-Million-Pound’ deal by Inc & Co. The acquisition occurred at the end of a rough patch for Maker&Son, who found the business had stalled after the impacts of COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine.   

The owners reached out to Inc & Co, who already had the luxury retail brand KNOMO London, hoping to agree on a positive way forward for the brand and its heritage.   

After a lengthy due diligence process, the acquisition secured the jobs of the current staff at the time, and Inc & Co. was committed to fulfilling historic customers’ orders.  

While not every acquisition is a success, this one is an excellent example of when things go well. Get a taste of what went on behind the scenes, diving into the post-acquisition stages and expansion plans for the future.
