Sheridan Coakley set up the furniture brand SCP in 1985, at a time when there were very few producers of modern furniture in Britain. He has been credited with launching the careers of design luminaries such as Matthew Hilton, Konstantin Grcic and Jasper Morrison. Nearly three decades on, SCP remains true to its founding idea, to make and sell design products that are functional, beautiful and made to last. In 2010 he won the Best Retail Innovation Award by Elle Decoration in The British Design Awards.

Matthew Hilton's furniture is held in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the Geffrye Museum, London, and the Manchester City Art Gallery. He was elected a Royal Designer for Industry (RDI) in 2005. In 2007 Matthew launched his company Matthew Hilton Limited.

Donna Wilson set up her company in 2003 after making knitted creatures for her final show at the Royal College of Art. Since then she has built her business designing and making a collection of curious cushions, luxurious lambswool blankets, and a variety of products for the home. Recently crowned 'Designer of the Year' by Elle Decoration Design Awards, Donna runs her studio and workshop in East London.
