Friday Fav: MapIsArt

Last Thanksgiving while touring the Hotel Viking’s annual Small Business Saturday Showcase, we came across one of the coolest businesses. MapIsArt allows buyers to put in a location, down to a specific address, and a water color style piece of art is generated from the topographical map of that location. These beautiful images can be put onto marble coasters, lamp shades, a serving tray, canvas, clock, print, and coming soon, baby onezies and pencil skirts. Each pieces is beautiful and completely unique.

Based in Newport Rhode Island, MapIsArt is our latest Friday Fav. Just as perfect a gift for the couple of honor, remembering where they tie the knot, as it for bridesmaids, groomsmen, mothers, fathers, and god parents. Their art is something everyone should own. Too cute!
