The Essential Home Accessory
The beauty of mapped data in a frame makes for a desirable ‘map-as-art’ look that is conversation starting and of course a little bit educational.
Make your home a beautiful place to learn with a stunning framed wall map.
How we frame our maps
All of our maps are framed to order in our Somerset studio.
We frame our maps without glass allowing the quality of the print to remain. Light plays off the metallics of the seas and the gloss-varnished landmasses, adding great surface finish to the map. Covering with glass would add glare and reflection, so we treat our maps like we would an oil painting. The maps are all finished with a sealer which protects the inks, allowing your map to be gently wiped down with a damp cloth. The map is dry mounted onto a backing board, for support, and framed using a clean, aluminium profile.
Framed & Magnetised Maps
Add a magnetic finish to use your map as a noticeboard.
They make a great focal point for the kitchen or study and come complete with stainless steel ball-bearing magnets to mark places of interest, as well as larger cylinder magnets to pin postcards and photographs.
All our magnetic maps also have the plastic write on/wipe off finish to help you dream your next trip, or just write this week’s shopping list!
Framed Maps with a Plastic Finish
If you have kids with sticky fingers, or just want that extra protection for the bathroom or kitchen, then we offer a plastic finish that allows you to write on with non-permanent pens or wipe your map down as you need to.
A different look to the paper finish but for certain uses, it is the practical choice.
About our frames
We use only the highest quality Nielsen frames, all made in Germany to give a great balance of lightness and strength. All of our framed maps have a cord across the back allowing your map to be hung quickly with one or two screws in the wall.
All our frames are available in a choice of 3 different finishes.
Glossy White: this will give your map a clean, contemporary finish and blend in with almost all interior settings. A sleek, and safe choice.
Brilliant Silver: for that little pop of light and a ‘look at me’ surround, silver is the perfect choice. It complements the metallic inks used within our prints and coordinates nicely with appliances in kitchens.
Oak: presented in a contemporary slim-line profile, our oak frames offer a modern minimal look that will give you a pared-down Scandinavian aesthetic, and work well with your wooden furniture.
