Howard and Hugh Miller have been designing and making together since childhood.
Being brothers, they share an understanding and ambition that transcends most normal business partnerships. Central to their success as a team is that the brothers bring complementary skills, architecture and furniture making, that combine into something greater than the sum of their parts.

Masters in Wood
Experimentation, prototyping and re-thinking old ideas are at the essence of all our kitchens.
When a client wanted a place to put up her children’s drawings, we developed a cork-clad cabinet door for her that could take push pins; when another client wanted her kitchen to be a place to sit quietly, we designed her a modern dresser complete with reading seat; and when a client expressed frustration at the standard air inlets at the bottom of fridges, we invented a sleek, crafted vent that we now incorporate into all our kitchens.
This approach comes from the brothers’ background as designers - Howard in architecture and Hugh in furniture. It’s a pedigree that is as fundamental to us today as it was when the brothers founded the workshop over a decade ago.
Our commitment to creating a environmentaly sustainable business
At H. Miller Bros, we recognize and enthusiastically accept our responsibility to work in an environmentally conscious and sustainable way.
We are committed to continually searching for ways to reduce the impact of our work on the enviromnet: in the materials we buy; the processes we use; and the waste we create and how it is disposed.
Over the many years we have been making luxury wood furniture and kitchens, we have discovered some amazing environmentally conscious materials and processes that we’re very keen to incorporate into our projects. If you’re looking to create a design-lead project in wood, that’s as environmentally responsible as it is beautiful, we’d love to hear from you.
THE H. MILLER BROS. WORKSHOP
Where the magic happens...
The H. Miller Bros. workshop is located in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle, on the south of the city centre. Our home is a warehouse built in 1916, that we have transformed into a contemporary furniture workshop. This sense of history and renewal chimes with the way we work – using both traditional hand tools and state-of-the-art equipment to create unique, design-lead, crafted, projects in wood.
It's easy to get to us by train, car or air! We’re 1 mile from Liverpool Lime Street station, where there are direct trains to London every hour. If you’re driving, there is 2 hours free parking on the street outside our workshop at all times. And if you’re coming from further afield, Liverpool John Lennon Airport is located just 7.5 miles south of our workshop (20-25 minute taxi ride).
