Beautifully upholstered in Kvadrat Ria fabric, co-designed by Raf Simons, the Balzac Armchair and Ottoman makes for a stylish addition to any living space. Now marking its 30th anniversary, SCP's Balzac family is rightfully celebrated for being one of the key lines of 1990s furniture design, with it's iconic shape truly given a real sense of being in this modern configuration. Both the chair and ottoman are built around solid beech frames, and are generously proportioned, ensuring that the experience of being amongst them is as comfortable as one could dream of.
Born in 1957, British furniture designer Matthew Hilton studied at Portsmouth College of Art and then at Kingston Polytechnic. After graduating he worked for Capa as an industrial designer and model maker. He then went on to set up his own design studio/workshop in 1984. In 1986, SCP was the first designer furniture manufacturer to produce Hilton’s work. Several years on, SCP and Matthew Hilton continue to collaborate, producing modern furniture such as the SCP Oscar Sofa and Compass desk.
Matthew Hilton has since gone on to work with many international furniture manufacturers including CASE, Montis, Authentics and De La Espada.
