Localizado en un edificio Art Deco del distrito de Miami Beach, Florida en la Avenida Washington 1001 y afiliado al Museo Wolfsoniana de Liguria en Nervi.

El Wolfsonian fue fundado por el coleccionista y filántropo de Miami Beach, Mitchell Wolfson, Jr. en 1986 para exhibición y preservación de su vasta colección personal.[1] En 1997 donó la colección y el edificio de tres plantas a la Florida International University.[1]

Ashbee, Christopher Dresser, Ernest Gimson, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, William Morris, M.H.
