SCP on a budget with Case
You've probably seen SCP if you've spent a bit of time wandering round the design section of Selfridges. The company, set up by Sheridan Coakley in 1985, sells classic designs of the "modern" period, along with new designs made in the same spirit by up and coming designers - which have included Matthew Hilton, Jasper Morrison and Terence Woodgate.
We've enjoyed checking out their range in the past, but found the prices a little rich for our tastes. So it's good news that the company are introducing a more pocket-friendly range, known as Case, with the same design aesthetics, but produced in Slovenia, which apparently has a tradition of highly skilled woodworking, not to mention a fine stock of timber.
For an example, check out this rather appealing oak cabinet by Terence Woodgate. It will set you back around £1,000. Still not down there with Ikea price-wise, but remember, this is designer furniture that will serve you well and prove a worthy investment in years to come.
