It’s hard to believe SCP has lived on Curtain Road for some 25 years: its creative, contemporary products feel entirely geared to the East End’s relatively recent 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.

SCP is number 100 in our list of the 100 best shops in London.

A design institution - one of the first retailers - and customer facing businesses- to open in Shoreditch, way before the area became trendy and then Leicester Square. If you've got a bit of money to spend, you can get the coolest in homewares here.  If you haven't, there's still plenty to buy - whether it's a Moomin mug or a set of six glasses. Lots of iconic designers Eames etc but the treats are to be found in their new discoveries. Really nice shop for a stroll around.
