SCP has been at the forefront of the British furniture industry for thirty years, playing an integral part in the development of two generations of designers. SCP has created an expansive range of beautiful contemporary furniture, whilst also providing a platform for young designers to bloom, many of whom have become internationally renowned talents in their own right. Rather presciently, SCP founder Sheridan Coakley summoned up the restrained modernist principles of form and function in the midst of 1980s Britain. The formula worked and SCP provided an oasis of calm in a decade of overtly gregarious design and chintzy styling. SCP has consistently sought out the most talented and dynamic designers to work with, designers who shape their generation. Launching designs from illustrious names such as Jasper Morrison, Matthew Hilton, Konstantin Grcic, James Irvine, Robin Day, Michael Marriott, Rachel Whiteread and Terence Woodgate. More recently SCP has been working with emerging talents such as Donna Wilson, Reiko Kaneko, Fort Standard, Lucy Kurrein and Faudet-Harrison. Genuine talent, pioneering spirit, competence and the importance of the brief have always been at the heart of what SCP stands for. SCP produces award winning and instantly recognisable designs, from full-blown contemporary classics such as Matthew Hilton’s Balzac armchair to lesser-known gems such as the Side chair by Jasper Morrison. Each year SCP develops a new range of furniture, balancing a dedication to traditional furniture making methods with the assimilation of advanced production techniques. SCP is a manufacturer, retailer, wholesaler and industry collaborator, free to efficiently manage the design process from conception to completion. SCP eschews transience, wilfully conspires against fashion, and is intent on producing design for use, as effortlessly beautiful as it is practical.
