Maps are one of those classic design staples that will never get old. When framed or hung correctly, a good map will fit just as well into a modern space as it will a country-chic dining room or that mahogany-clad smoking room. (Those are still around, right?!)
When I came across this new way to frame maps, I almost fell right off of my chair.
How clever is this!? Instead of spending hundreds of dollars to get a custom made frame, carefully attach the map directly on the wall and add a off-sized hanging frame in front of it!
That boring map has instantly gone from blah to bordering on genius.
You could even take this up a notch and use the frame to point out a special area (home, favorite vacation spot…or wedding location, anyone?!)
I’m so loving this. It’s a clean, new take on something that’s been around for decades. This could also totally work in a dorm room or apartment! Hello chic-est rental, ever!!
Would you hang a print and a frame independently like this?
