I am always on the hunt for new and eclectic furnishings that can add exciting interest to one’s home decor. The MoMA Museum Storeis fast becoming one of my new, favorite go-to places to shop for interior design inspiration. As quiet as it is kept, the MoMA is not just a haven for many of the world’s most exquisite pieces of modern art. Of course it is no secret that you will find great works of post-impressionist, surrealist and cubist art from the likes of Cezanne, Picasso and Seurat on display. However, once you step inside the MoMA, you will find that it has a superior museum store that features global product lines for the home and for personal use.
With Cinco de Mayo fast approaching, the MoMA Museum Store is showcasing unique products from the country of Mexico as part of their Destination Design Series. According to the MoMA museum, this collection showcases “emerging Mexican designers that provide contemporary interpretations of classic Mexican themes”.
There you will find everything from unique and festive kitchenware, furniture, lamps, jewelry, gifts and personal accessories all inspired by Mexican artisans. But don’t take my word for it. Check out some of my favorites items featured here in the slideshow as well as others showcased in the gallery that are currently in the MoMA Museum Store.
