Founded in 2005 by Nick Batchelder, Archive 20th Century is devoted to the thoughtful and discerning presentation of historic and contemporary furniture and objects by leading designers. The collection includes works from the United States and Europe, 1945 to the present, with an emphasis on iconic forward-thinking works from the 1970s and 80s.

Focusing on quality of concept, craftsmanship and condition, we are a services oriented dealer. We work with a global network of experts, bringing a selective catalogue of design to collectors, interior designers and enthusiasts around the world. Each piece offered is found in original condition and finishes, or expertly conserved by Archive's team of professional restorers.
