SCP in the making
On Saturday April 6th, between 11am – 4pm, we will be performing a live upholstery demonstration in the window of the Heal’s Tottenham Court Road store as part of the ‘Heal’s Masterpieces’. This live presentation will showcase our upholstery making techniques, brought straight from our Norfolk based factory; Coakley & Cox Ltd. Throughout the course of the day, two Oscar armchairs, designed by Matthew Hilton, will be constructed and upholstered in the front window of the store, alongside a short film about our upholstery process.
Coakley & Cox Ltd is our very own specialist upholstery factory located in the flatlands of Norfolk. It’s made up of a small dedicated team of framemakers, pattern cutters, seamstresses, upholsterers, product developers and designers. They all work closely together to create each individual piece of furniture that leaves the factory. In recent years, the factory has made great advances; producing sustainable pieces using FSC approved European hardwood, natural fibres, animal hair and wool. The factory uses traditional techniques, little having changed in hundreds of years, except an improvement in the tools.
We are very proud to be a British manufacturer, one who launches new products year after year. So many great people have helped us along the way and we take real pleasure working with wonderfully talented craftsman and woman.
There is also a new display of SCP products on the first floor of the store. On show is a wide selection of our furniture including theBalzac armchair, Oscar sofa, Agnes range, Flipper and Cricket coffee tables and a selection of SCP rugs, pouffes and theBoundary pendant lights.
