Bali views… because it’s always summer somewhere. Created by our founder, Kristian Gallagher, who explains it this way: “everyone has a dream escape in their head. For some it’s the beach, or the mountains, or a penthouse in the city. This is mine. An open-air villa with tropical flowers and an ocean view.”

It’s available framed or unframed, in multiple sizes.


Modern Tropical specializes in tropical art + decor, all things nature, and anything else we feel like creating today. We encourage you to do the same.

Today we released the latest in our Bird series: Bird Stack III. Is this not the cutest neighborhood watch ever? Inspired by mid century poster design (and the birds I interact with on my beach walks!), these minimalist feathered friends look great in any room, and bonus: they’ll keep an eye on your stuff.

Origin Story: Chinese Lucky Cat

In America we call it the Chinese Lucky Cat, but it actually got its start in Japan where it is known as maneki-neko, or “beckoning cat”.

Its association with being lucky comes from Japanese folktales, where cats who hung around a merchant’s doorway were believed to attract customers. These talismans are still immensely popular in Chinese American communities, which is why we think of them as being Chinese.

Fun fact: It is also said that the Pokémon named Meowth is based on a maneki-neko, though whether that’s true or not is much debated on the internet.

What we can all agree on is that they are adorable and everyone should have (at least) one.  Because who doesn’t want more good luck in their life?
