Celebrate Arts Advocacy Day with Iconic Art
Miami-based boutique site Musart reinterprets contemporary classics for the modern home as trays, statuettes, and more
While searching for bar carts in the Lonny archives—because it's technically happy hour and I'm obviously not at a pub—I came across the spirited console in interior designer Michelle Smith's Sag Harbor house and was instantly reminded of the Vitruvian Man, Leonardo DaVinci's masterpiece of human proportion. The importance of art in the home isn't a new concept, but today, on Arts Advocacy Day here in the U.S., it seems more significant than ever.
We've highlighted countless gallery walls and portraits throughout Lonny's lifetime, but what if your taste for the arts centers on the contemporary classics—those iconic pieces that have made their way into museums across the globe? Enter the new Miami-based boutique Musart, where you can find hundreds of reproductions of your favorite works, from Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss" to Rodin's "The Thinker," reinterpreted for the modern home as trays, statuettes, and more.
"Our vision is to perpetuate the legacy of iconic artists such as Dali, Miro, Mondrian, Picasso, and Van Gogh and share our passion for cultural heritage," say Musart owners Gregory Rouf and Vincent Gregoire. It's a sentiment that ties into their feelings on home decor in general. "We believe that one iconic piece can change the entire dynamic of a room. Our items are more than simple objects—they have beautiful stories to tell." We couldn't agree more.
