Athena Calderone is a lifestyle designer with an eye for the unexpected. A visual creature who believes beauty comes from self-expression – and that self-expression is about giving yourself license to be more than one thing – this model-turned-interior designer and dedicated foodie embraces unusual pairings. The result is design with texture and authenticity that draws inspiration from the world around it and aims to inspire others. Her partner in the sale, Factory 20, is a multidisciplinary art and design collective discovering intrinsically valuable decorative arts and furnishings to convey a different impression of 20th century design.
