Smithsonian Home Products Hit Stores

Breaking News

Move over Martha Stewart. You're getting some new competition from an old source: furniture and home decor products inspired by the collections of the Smithsonian Institution.

The Smithsonian Collection for the Home includes dining and bedroom sets, chandeliers, sinks and even fireplace accessories modeled after pieces and designs held by the world's largest museum and research complex.

"They all have a history," Peter Reid, of Smithsonian Business Ventures, said of the pieces. "As you would expect, some of that information accompanies each piece."
