Be a world explorer from the comfort of your own home by decorating with globes and maps.  Globes and maps have shown us the way for centuries.  Cartographers have created works of art that allow us to circumvent the globe from our classrooms, board rooms and homes.  Turn your interiors into a unique journey by using globes and maps to decorate your rooms.

Old maps can be framed and hung in a room to add rich character.  Use actual maps or map-themed paper for an inspired wall treatment.

Vintage school maps are coming into fashion as home décor.  They can be used alone as wall hangings or grouped for a colorful wall display.

Use old maps for practical decorative uses, such as lampshades and book covers.  Map lampshades illuminate worldly charm.  Map book covers really add interest to book shelves and hide those covers that aren’t as attractive.  These are also great for travel-themed rooms.

Repurpose old paper maps for trays, wooden letters and other decorative items for the home.  Fold them into Origami shapes and use them at the table for place settings or as party favors.  Put up a map of the world and pin where you’ve been or where you’d like to go.

Globes have mass appeal and come in all sizes and styles, making them a unique collector’s item.  Grouped together, globes make a bold statement.  Place a collection on a bookshelf or display them on and around a table for maximum impact.

Craft globes into other household items, such as clocks or even pots for planting.  Transform globes into lamps or cut them in half and mount them on the wall for a creative display.
