8 Oversized Posters I Love

For the past few years I’ve been all about editing down my collection of prints and posters to focus primarily on larger pieces. Nothing fancy or expensive, just something large enough that it can command a larger wall-space without feeling as cluttered as a gallery wall can. So far that means we only have a few pieces hung on the walls, but the ones we have are bold and beautiful and always seem to start a conversation. For me, that’s the power of a large piece- they grab your eye and make you think. So this morning I decided to round up a few oversized prints and posters I’ve been bookmarking online. It can be expensive to frame really large pieces, so I love that most of these look great just with a few clips or pins to attach them to the wall. xo, grace

  8. maggie says:

    I am OBSESSED with that crystal print! I am a fan of large, oversized prints and canvases – I think sometimes one large piece is a great way to bring a bunch of smaller pieces together. Thanks for introducing me to some great art!

  9. V says:

    Thank you for this! I have been struggling to find large-size affordable posters.

  10. Cathy says:

    I also think the Marilyn one is hilarious!

  11. I have been crushing on that black and white crystal poster for a while now. It’s so big, bold and beautiful!

    The poster with Oscar Wilde`s quote caught my attention. I started t think that it has a deep philosophical and psychological senses. We tend to forget that we should appreciate our personality because each of us is unique.

  13. Hillary says:

    Fantabulous! Thanks for sharing.

  14. Steph says:

    Ok I feel like a grandma for asking this question but how do people hang these big posters? I have one I really like but don’t want to pay to have it framed and can’t seem to think of a way to hang it so it doesn’t scream COLLEGE DORM ROOM. Any thoughts?

  15. Thanks for the love designsponge!!
