Map makers at Pangea are pushing the boundaries of home decor with these beautifully vivid coastal topography maps. The maps are cut individually from pieces of wood and require precision and attention to detail. Each one is fastened into a frame and intended to be hung on a wall to let visitors know of the unique sentiment that specific point holds. The company typically focuses on water bodies surrounding more common places like New York, San Francisco, or Canada and Australia, but will also customize pieces upon request. The company puts a different perspective on familiar places by revealing the deep layers that exist but remain out of sight.

Maps have remained a popular home decor item adding elements of vintage nostalgia to any room, however these modern coastal topography maps act as a modern solution for the travel bug with modern design tastes.
