Let’s get creative with what we hang on our walls. Vintage maps offer the character any empty wall needs. It’s hard for us to think of a time when maps weren’t around – when they arrived, it was exciting. For the first time, you could see and imagine the whole world, understanding how big each country was and where they all sat alongside each other. The same goes for wall charts – people used to gaze at the detailed illustrations for ages.
We might now have maps at the touch of a button, but the beauty of vintage maps boasts even more charm.
They’re colourful, bold and full of wanderlust. They could take up a whole wall or you could divide up maps and frame them individually. A map could include somewhere you’ve got happy memories, or somewhere you’d love to visit.
Making vintage maps work for your home
Have you ever seen a home and wondered just how they create the vibe? It tends to look like people have collected carefully chosen stuff for years. In many cases, they have. But the style can still be recreated easily with vintage goods. The idea is to create a feel that years of collecting went into creating your home – that’s exactly what our virtual flea market can do. All the effort is already done. All the vintage stuff – including maps and other great things to hang on your walls – is in one place.
