One of our highlights from London Design Festival was the new upholstered collection by SCP. All made in SCP's specialist factory in Norfolk using 100% natural and sustainable materials, we think you will love them.
There are two armchairs and four sofas by Matthew Hilton, Philippe Malouin, Donna Wilson, Wilkinson & Rivera and Terence Woodgate.
Natural and sustainable materials
For the first time, this SCP collection is 100% foam free upholstery designs. A project that their factory has been working on for over a decade. Foam, being petrochemical based, is the key unsustainable material in modern upholstery, and SCP believe it has to be removed from products to ensure they are truly sustainable. You can read more about this in our interview with Sheridan Coakley, founder of SCP.
Frames are made from FSC beech and softwood ply, with oak feet. The collection is upholstered with wool interliner, hessian, Typar, jute webbing, wool felt, Cocolok, needled wool and HD wool.
The theme of this collection is an exploration of soft power. Blending the ornate with restrained, the extravagant with the classical.
Designed by Matthew Hilton, the SCP Ada armchair design balances comfort with a delicate, hand-drawn aesthetic. Its proportions cradle the human frame.
Matthew Hilton says:
Element sofa system by Philippe Malouin
With a well-rounded aesthetic, this design grew from a focus on one particular element: the corners. By creating symmetrical matching corner units, which can act as ends as well as sides, and the addition of a central ottoman module, allows for the creation of a fully enclosed internal seating space - ideal for ultimate comfort, conversation and conviviality.
The MacDuff sofa by Donna Wilson
Featuring a boxy design, the MacDuff sofa is substantially sized with large, oak feet. We love the bright yellow upholstery - a playful approach like Donna's approach to design - and think its a distinctive and unique piece of furniture.
