Colorful Finds

New York hosts great museums — imposing ones like the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art and smaller gems like the Frick. In between are some of my favorites, such as the Whitney Museum and the Museum of Art and Design (with a recently changed name from the American Craft Museum). The Whitney has a good online store where you can find some unexpected designs.

Museum stores online carry different merchandise than their physical counterparts so they are resources for good-looking, unusual and well-designed items either for yourself or to give as gifts. One other non-New York online museum store that has interesting items belongs to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Don't overlook these arty avenues for something refreshingly different.
