It’s hard to believe SCP has lived on Curtain Road for nearly three decades, having been founded in 1985: its creative, contemporary products feel entirely geared to the East End’s influx of cool-hunters. But founder Sheridan Coakley has long championed functional and beautiful design and stocked the two floors of his store with statement items for every space in the home, from garden furniture to bathroom accessories. Each cherry-picked product is designed meticulously and aimed squarely at stylish homeowners who care as much about what their tape dispenser looks like as their dining table. There are textiles, furniture and homeware by guest brands, together with SCP’s own work, which often takes the form of collaborations with international designers.
