Simon Alderson and Tony Cunninham of London–based high designer purveyors twentytwentyone talk kitsch versus collectible and the integrity of good design.

In 1993, Tony Cunningham and Simon Alderson founded twentytwentyone, a design store that sources, produces, and sells modern furniture, lighting, and products from a converted stable building in London’s trendy Islington neighborhood. Through their uniquely curated exhibitions they continue to make people aware of great design—–modern, vintage, and contemporary.
