The Posh Box Company

Wooden Toy & Blanket Boxes

About Us

The Posh Box Company - manufacturers of traditional solid wooden toy boxes, blanket boxes and furniture.

The Posh Box Company is based in the old farm buildings of Gault Hill Farm, in Cambridgeshire. Jeremy Vella, the founder of the Posh Box Company, bought the derelict farm buildings back in 1996 and since then much effort has been put into bringing life back into the site with a mixed development of home, offices and workshops. It is a great rural setting and we are fortunate as a business to have a team made up of family and old school friends.

Located in the main barn adjoining the house, The Posh Box Company prides itself on producing traditional solid wooden toy boxes, blanket boxes and furniture which are beautifully hand painted and finished in Farrow & Ball heritage colours.

Our small team is dedicated to making traditional pieces of furniture that will last for years. We are fortunate in having two great artists working for us on our bespoke range of toy boxes.
