Four and Twenty to open on Cedar Road
Sean Fagan and Kim Scholten are relocating and expanding their vintage antiques business, Four and Twenty, from Cleveland’s Larchmere neighborhood to 12433 Cedar Road in the historic Cedar Fairmount Business District.
The owners plan to open in their new location before Thanksgiving, in a space almost twice the size of the Larchmere store. In their mix of products, Fagan and Scholten focus on Industrial Arts, significant rural pieces and Mid-century Modern.
Fagan’s expertise as a master craftsman in both furniture and lighting, paired with Scholtens’s background in interior design and architecture, enable them to give cater to their clients’ needs. In addition to antiques, rustic pieces and found objets d’art, they design and build custom furniture—some reinvented using reclaimed materials from local demolished buildings—and lighting for both residential and retail clients.
Along with Richard Zingale—who has joined Four and Twenty, bringing his background and perspective in both architecture and interiors—the owners plan to expand their business by adding contemporary furniture lines as well as unique home furnishings. The three plan to develop Four and Twenty into a “lifestyle incubator” that will include smaller, useful home wares and new handcrafted items.
“People always ask us how we buy?” Scholten said, “What do we like? “Where do we get our inspiration? Our answer—always—is 'With our eye.' It’s not a sixth sense, but perhaps a seventh!”
