Posterlounge World Map

When Posterlounge contacted me offering me a piece of artwork to review in honesty I hesitated. I always want to bring you as my audience interesting products and gorgeous businesses and as such I don’t have any desire to introduce you to anything that I don’t believe in or love. With art I need to be inspired or moved. It needs to spark something in me to get me excited about it and I couldn’t tell from the initial information if this company would do that.

With this hesitation I took a look at the Posterlounge website. For some reason I fully expected to find a few children’s posters and not much more. I didn’t. In fact, I was blown away. Seriously. Yes of course as the name of the business suggests the prints can be ordered as posters. It doesn’t stop there though. There are a variety of alternative materials too, along with different sizes and a huge, super huge in fact, collection of artwork. Children’s bedroom, hallway, work space, relaxation room, kitchen or bathroom you could find a piece for them all here. Not only that, but you have plenty of choice for each of these spaces at Posterlounge. In fact their motto is “art for every wall” and I can see why! They have over 100,000 motifs to choose from and I was immediately taken by the options and with the company and knew that you would be excited to learn about them too.

After much deliberation even leading to a late night conversation with my husband visualising what would work with our available wall space, I chose a world map to review. For the material I decided to go for the Alu-Dibond. I confess I hadn’t heard of it before (where have I been?!) but it seemed like a great fit for our home. Regular readers will know that a couple of years ago we moved from our 1830s home into a 1960s build and the style and therefore vision for the interior is definitely different. Made with two layers of aluminium and one of polyethylene I’ve heard that the Alu-Dibond compound is highly rated by professional photographers not just for its finish but also because it is long lasting. Not only that but it first became popular as a material for printing art in the 1960s, which makes it a perfect partner for our house.

Posterlounge started life in Germany as a decorating company back in 2003. With its three founding members still firmly at the helm there is a lovely, gentle family feel to the business. Their customer service is exceptional, nothing is too much trouble. Having ordered my artwork it arrived very quickly (in four days to be precise!) all beautifully well packaged so that it was secure and undamaged on delivery. The fittings and full instructions were all included too, all I needed was two screws and a handyman (aka my husband) with a drill and with a flutter and a flourish it was hung on our wall.

The piece itself is perfect for the space. We chose to hang it on the landing and our boys admire it every time they are upstairs. I’m very glad that we went for a world map as it is sparking their interest in the wider world (“where’s this country?”, “where does this person live?”, “where shall we go on holiday next?” are commonly asked questions when admiring it). My only teeny tiny gripe is that the poles of the earth are missing. Then again that is a style point rather than a quality one, and I was after a piece that found a line somewhere between being informative and pure art so I feel that this is a perfect fit for that. The quality is superb and although I only have the one piece to write about I suspect that this would be the case whichever product you chose and whichever material you opt for.

Thank you so much for having me! Yes, they get to see it every day and check in and notice things about it. Just the small matter of removing the wallpaper on that wall now to smarten the wall up and make a better feature of the map. It certainly deserves it! 🙂 xx
