We’re not surprised to hear that business is booming for Love Maps On, for here ‘the writing is on the wall’ means a steady flow of orders for their wallpaper, canvases and posters.
Run by two husband and wife teams, they offer a collection of high quality modern and vintage map prints for interiors, which can be centered on a postcode of your choice. Love Maps On’s resident cartographer, Jane Voss, has created and sourced maps that appeal to everyone from home decorators to educators.
The maps include early Ordnance Survey maps of the UK, contemporary urban street maps and historic and present-day world, UK and European maps. Available as framed prints, posters, canvases, or wallpaper, they can be printed at a size and in a finish to suit any room.
With their striking graphics in bold monochrome or subtle colours and shading, the stylish maps can focus on a significant place, showcase a home or business location, celebrate a special destination or share the love of a favourite city.
Jane works with husband James Anderson in Warfield and, as he says: “Everybody loves maps, whether that’s the detail of modern day or ones from past centuries showing how an area once looked.”
They’ve teamed up with Rob Cullingford and Helen Barnes to produce the maps that turn walls into works of art. Rob Cullingford, Director of Love Maps On, says: “We’re passionate about maps and creating personalised prints that look great at home, in the office or business space. Visitors to the Love Maps On website can choose a print from our growing collection, in the format and finish they prefer. We’re delighted that customers love the quality of our products, and our bespoke maps, centered on a postcode of their choice, are proving popular as gifts.”
You’ll pay from £22 for a poster, canvases start at £37.50 and wallpaper at £106 a roll. Pick your favourites at www.lovemapson.com and keep an eye on the website as coming soon are both static and personalised mapping are flooring, Formica, tiling, kitchen/giftware and soft furnishings.
