To celebrate thirty years of the Balzac armchair by Matthew Hilton, SCP has released a Special Anniversary Edition which is made from fully sustainable and natural materials.
The Balzac armchair by Matthew Hilton was launched by SCP in 1991. It was SCP’s very first upholstery design and is made by hand at a small specialist factory in Norfolk. Initially the design was met with little fanfare, but within a few years its curvaceous looks, modernist sensibility and undoubted comfort had caught the imagination of both the design world and the public.
It went on to become SCP’s signature piece, a bestseller in retail that was also specified far and wide in the contracts market. Matthew Hilton’s idea behind the Balzac – to take a traditional furniture typology and update it for the modern world – is something that became embedded in SCP’s design ethos.
The Special Anniversary Edition Balzac is made with fully sustainable and natural materials. It has a solid beech frame with jute webbing and zigzag springs. Upholstered with 100% natural and sustainable materials, including latex and coconut fibre, needled lambs wool, needled recycled wool and recycled foam. As standard, the seat cushion is filled with feathers but other options are also available. The legs are natural oak. A lifetime guarantee is offer on the frame.
Prices shown are for the chair upholstered in its signature Sorensen Utah Russet leather. It can be upholstered in a wide range of fabrics and leathers. Please contact us for more information.
