A Globe For Every Decor: Take One For A Spin

As we embark on another spin around the sun, I thought what better way to celebrate than by obsessively tracking down every cool globe I’ve stumbled across during my many years on the internet? See — we recently inherited a 3-foot-tall vintage globe ourselves and I’m debating the appropriate way to update it for our living room. I’m totally open to inspiration…since none of these will really help me…I just thought they were pretty. {Especially the chalkboard one…I die.}  Anyway — enjoy, and Happy New Year!

    ImagineNations
    Every single one of ImagineNations art on globes -- from their literal interpretation of Peace on Earth, to their stunning custom family trees -- take my breath away. Just...go look. (But then come back because there are a lot more globes.)

    This Land of Nod ceramic nightlight seems to have been discontinued from planet earth, but it's beautiful so I can't for the life of me figure out why.

    If you think life revolves around Manhattan, this is the globe for you. Okay fine, it's a print of the globe of Manhattan, but it's still cool. {via Stephen Wiltshire}
