My Modern Shop: Our New Online Art Store is Now Open!

We have some very exciting news to share with you today! After a lot of behind-the-scenes work, we’re finally ready to unveil our latest project – My Modern Shop! After receiving countless emails from you asking us where you can buy a print of a piece of art or photo you fell in love with on My Modern Met, we knew we had to do something. Your emails became the inspiration for this exciting new endeavor.

My Modern Shop is where you can buy affordable art and photography prints from today's most exciting contemporary artists. The artwork you’ll find there is highly curated, first by us and then by you. All of the photographers and artists you’ll see on the Shop have had their work featured on My Modern Met and, in most cases, these are the artists and photographers you have most loved, appreciated and shared.

Today, we welcome you to check it out. Once you register and login, you’ll find a neat “secret” feature we developed called “My Gallery,” which shows you how your piece of artwork will look on a painted or bare brick wall and how it would it look framed or on canvas. (See below for screenshots of product page and gallery.)

One last thing, thank you for taking this journey with us. It’s been over four years since we started My Modern Met and we wouldn’t be here without all of your encouraging emails, tweets, and Facebook messages. Just like the artists we feature here inspire you, you’ve inspired us to make this huge leap forward in creating our very own online shop. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. We hope you’ll enjoy My Modern Shop.

Beautiful Vintage Light Bulbs Feature Luminous Floral Filaments

LED light bulbs are all the rage nowadays, but you can’t beat the timeless beauty of vintage filaments. Between the late 1930s and into the 1970s, the Aerolux Light Corporation produced novelty bulbs with tiny sculptures inside. These decorative filaments take the shapes of flowers and birds which are electrically illuminated in a variety of vibrant colors. To construct these bulbs, Aerolux used low-pressure gas in their filaments—either neon, argon, or both.
