Sure, the Internet has been great for bringing us all together, but the democratization of design it’s created does have a downside: It’s increasingly difficult to own things unique to your home and closet. Enter 20LTD.com. The London-based website’s “editors” handpick all 20 products offered on the site at a given time, without solicitation from the designers themselves, and the wares are created exclusively for 20ltd.com in very limited quantities by design stars such as Marcel Wanders, Zaha Hadid, and Derek Lam. A favorite recent addition is the Domino trolley and suitcase from Globe-Trotter, the venerable English luggage company favored by Winston Churchill and Kate Moss.
