GIFTS FOR MAP LOVERS
Maps are a symbol with a visual value. Via maps we can show our favourite places. They do well in pretty
much every interior. Let us see how maps and various types of interior fit together:
Decorations play an important role in the sitting room – with their design and style you make a statement,
you are telling your story. This is the room we normally spend most of our time while at home. The living
room design reflects our personality yet it is also a place where we welcome guests and visitors. Based on
my own experience, map art on walls is a great conversation starter! Almost all of our guests immediately
focus on the antique map that hangs in our living room, study the map, ask questions, and a conversation
Staircases and hallway are the places of movement. They are highly frequented and any wall decor placed
here will be seen the most. Do you have a favourite place that you really want it to be seen? Place the map
We spend the longest part of the day in our office. It is a great idea to decorate such spaces with something
from your private life. It can be a map of your last holiday destination, or perhaps a map of your hometown.
It will help you feel more comfortable in the office and help you better concentrate for work.
A bedroom is a private space. It is a place where we rest and dream. Why not hang a map of your dream
Maps are ideal items to support the theme of any public interior. Whether you are opening a Mexican
restaurant or your Irish pub needs a facelift, a well-selected themed decor will do it good. You will also find
a number of maps covering places where coffee is grown. Such map decor will enhance any café interior.
No wonder antique map art is one of the most popular hotel lobby decorations. Just notice it next time you
travel. Hanging maps are a great way how to welcome visitors to your city or region.
Old nautical maps are an ideal wall decor for boats’ and yachts’ interior. Sailing is an active, adventurous
lifestyle. There is no better traditional symbol of an adventure than the exploratory voyages from past centuries,
which wouldn’t had been possible without navigational tools including sea maps. The development of mapmaking
from the 15th century onwards contributed immensely to the rise in the scale of overseas traffic. Antique nautical
maps keep the spirit of these important voyages alive. No boat should leave a harbour without one.
Vintage maps are a fine segment of wall art. They are an ideal type of a wall hanging to express someone’s
personality, someone’s life story. This means historical maps are definitely a great gift idea.
My customers often buy map posters as a birthday present for their loved ones. Since the pre-holiday season
usually gets very busy in my shop, the old maps clearly make a great Christmas present too. During the wedding
season, I also regularly have customers who give maps as wedding gifts. They choose the map according to
a favourite place the bride and the groom have travelled to together or where they’ll spend their honeymoon.
Last, but not least, historical maps are a perfect anniversary present idea. Having spent time together, couples
have their favourite locations that are worth being reminded of! The first wedding anniversary is nicknamed the
“paper anniversary” which offers a great opportunity for products made of paper. Our map reproductions are
printed on sheets of high quality handmade paper so it suits the theme well.

to you with a tailor-made offer for a thematic wall mementoes.
