Alan Fears and his partner Pippa Kahn started their vintage furniture and accessories store Fears and Kahn selling items from 1950 through to 1980, specifically selling pop-plastics, space-age, and modern objects.
They keep their stock in a "crumbling old warehouse", but somehow their home - in a gloriously inappropriate Victorian double-fronted house, in the smart suburb of West Bridgford - has become a showcase for the finer points of modernist design. "It's full of things we love too much to sell to anyone," says Kahn. "Or that are a bit knackered and we haven't got round to doing up yet," adds Fears. The solid, well-crafted rubs shoulders with quirky one-offs wherever you look. Snippet taken from Independent article)
