Visit us in New Orleans - French Quarter
People ask us all the time about how and why we fell in love with New Orleans and about why we chose to open up a shop here. Words really don't come close when trying to describe such a feeling, but maybe it has to do with Pure Art. Pure Art is living and breathing everywhere you turn; being truly surrounded by soulful music at all hours of the day; the spontaneity of a second line coming down the street and the way it automatically makes you stop, smile, and take part; the incomparable cuisine, boasting a vast spectrum of flavors rivaled only by the wide variety of forms it comes in; being cut off from the outside world; a city whose collective pride has helped sustain a way of life unknown anywhere else in the world; being part of something significant--history, brotherhood, a unique culture--a family. Thank you New Orleans!
Located in the heart of the French Quarter, Royal street is one of the oldest streets in New Orleans and renowned for its art galleries, antique shops, and stately hotels. It is located in the 700 block at 738, across the street from the Pere Antonie Restaurant.

“I have been surrounded by art my entire life. From a young age, I have been passionate about showcasing unusual and unique artists from all over the world. I have been very fortunate thanks to the founders (my parents) to be a part of bringing our collection to a city like New Orleans, and am extremely lucky to have met my wife, a native New Orleanian (Frances) here in the French Quarter.” – Michael
