Launched this month is SCP Pimlico Road, situated at number 57, right in the heart of Grosvenor Estate Belgravia – an area known for its thriving design scene.
The new showroom is presenting an edit of the highest quality designs that SCP make, and products from a select group of exclusive partner brands. The space hopes to provide professional advice for interior designers, architects and private clients, and a new type of product previously unavailable to them in their local area.
Pop along and you can expect to find high-quality upholstery pieces, bespoke decorative lighting, and examples of wonderful craftsmanship, all in an environment that expresses a sensitive understanding of material, texture and colour.
Alongside SCP own brand products, SCP Pimlico Road is showcasing a selection of key brands, including furniture from Piet Hein Eek, De La Espada and statement lighting from American brands David Weeks Studio and Roll & Hill – more on these shortly.
Working with selected partners, SCP Pimlico Road will also host a series of openings, talks and happenings throughout the calendar year. These will be both standalone activities and those held in conjunction with other events such as London Craft Week, Decorex, The Chelsea Flower Show and the London Design Festival.
For its opening month, SCP will present a blend of their most popular handmade upholstery pieces from designers such as Philippe Malouin and Matthew Hilton, a number of their larger furniture pieces in wood and new textiles and rugs from Donna Wilson.
Also on show will be Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek who developed the iconic Scrapwood Collection in reaction to the problems created by traditional mass manufacturing. The collection established his brand and he continues to work with reclaimed materials to turn potentially wasted offcuts into desirable pieces of modern furniture with artisanal appeal. His designs show an intricate understanding of materials, are full of feeling and their value lies in both their aesthetics and in the intensive labour that goes into their creation.
Elsewhere, minimal in style yet expressive in detail, the De La Espada collection places focus on the simple, primary requirements of the modern home. The brand specialises in solid wood furniture and works closely with a roster of leading designers and their dedicated factory in Northern Portugal.
Also available to view are pieces from David Weeks Studio, a New York-based, interdisciplinary design practice producing furniture, lighting and sculptural objects as well as collaborating on custom commissions and experimental projects. SCP is presenting an edit of the brand's iconic centrepiece lighting.
Last but not least, you can see more of Roll & Hill, founded in 2010 by lighting designer Jason Miller. Based in New York City, they are at the forefront of an American contemporary design movement, working with American and international designers, both emerging and established.
