This may look like a post-apocalyptic shell of something in the Design District, but it’s actually an iconic but very mucked up sculpture known as ‘The Living Room’ created by artist duo Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt. Doubling as the entrance to a furniture showroom, ‘The Living Room’ was oversized and adorable, with tangerine orange floral wallpaper, a drapey curtain, a bright lipstick red couch, and even a window that when looked at it in the right way played a clever trick of scale and perspective. The showroom has long gone, but the sculpture itself is still there, under layers of spray paint, signage, and dirt. Although The Living Room has been on the market for a while, it is now being offered by Metro One Properties as part of an assemblage of lots that make up over an acre of land for $37.5 million.

Wow. $37.5 Mil. This makes Lemon City and Little River look better and better.

It would be really cool if they could incorporate it into whatever they’re building; even if it were a low-rise skyscraper, it would be a great save for public art in Miami.
