About Us

After years working full throttle as an architect in a top London practice Jo was on the lookout for an alternative way to balance family life whilst also fulfilling her creative side. A way to share her love for design, modern furniture and tread a bit of a different path within the design world.

In 2018, alongside her husband Calum, a film editor, they took the decision to launch Urban Coo. A design shop that would champion products that they love and celebrate brands that share the same values as themselves - creativity, sustainability and the modernist aesthetic.

What a journey it has been. Year one was spent packing orders in the spare bedroom, taking a great deal of time over the presentation and ensuring Urban Coo was known for quality and exceptional customer service. They then began to grow..... out into the hallway, down the stairs, until eventually they said STOP ....... we're gonna need a bigger space!

They are now three years on and Urban Coo is a part of the family, it is growing and Jo works hard to ensure the offering remains relevant and fresh. There are many plans afoot for Urban Coo so watch this space and please come along for the ride!


Why Urban Coo?

Well this is a nod to our homeland of rural Scotland and those familiar hairy beasts roaming nature's space, loch's and munro's and because, today, we are just as familiar with city living. This pic is of Craig, a very modern Highland 'Coo', who makes us smile every day!
