Modern Map Art is a unique gift and decorating idea that artfully preserves precious memories.
While I received a free personalized map of the city I raised my family, the opinions and comments in this article are my own.
What do you use to capture special memories of places you’ve visited, lived, or where important milestones have happened?
Photographs, paintings, and digital scrapbooks are pretty common. Have you ever considered a map as a unique gift and decorating idea to remember these meaningful places?
Modern Map Art was founded in 2016. The founder of the company had just returned from a honeymoon travelling all over the world and wanted to take what she had learned about the culture and colors of the trip and turn it into something special.
Since she had always been passionate about maps — atlases, vintage maps, street maps – she thought that would be a clever way to tell the story of all the places she visited. From there, the founder expanded her idea and started using city grids and imagery from other familiar cities around the United States, creating posters and art that would look good in anyone’s home or office. Modern Map Art’s unique gift and decorating idea is elegant and modern, with a touch of nostalgia for anyone that has a connection to a particular city.
I was first introduced to the idea of decorating with maps from my daughter, Rachel. She and her husband are well traveled, both in the U.S. and abroad. Rachel started the tradition for her family of picking up a map from their special trips as a souvenir. Her living room wall is a collage of these maps.
I love having my first art map be the location where I raised my family. Rancho Cucamonga was our foundation. What a great reminder of all we did and accomplished as a family in this town. It’s especially meaningful today since our children are now grown and living in different states.
Modern Map Art is willing to work with their clients in creating a unique gift and decorating idea that is memorable to them. What a great way to remember a special trip, honeymoon, alma mater, hometown, or any other special place. Modern Map Art also makes Map pillows and iPhone case art.
