Islamic Wall Stickers

I' m not a big fan of wall stickers because they usually look tacky to me and I keep envisioning future decorating shows with home owners complaining about the wall art left behind. But I found this online business from Malaysia which sells Islamic wall stickers and it looked quite nice especially the way they contrast with  the background paint colours. I don't know any business which is selling these though and I'm sure you don't want to order a thousand of them but it might be a good idea for muslim business owners to stock them before the trend dies out. Would you decorate with these or any other stickers?

  1. It seems that this link is broken, however, please do check out our website: http://www.IradaArts.com. We recently launched our own shop that sells Islamic wall stickers, only ours are done by some of the greatest calligraphers and designers alive (2 of them have made the annual "500 Most Influential Muslims" 3 years in a row). Please check it out and let me know what you think.

    One thing about going with classically designed wall art like the ones we have is they seem to have a great balance of being very traditional in their look but very modern in the wall decal format. I may be a bit biased but I would love to hear your thoughts.

  2. Oh dear the link does seem to be broken.Thanks for pointing that out. Your company also has very lovely designs, in fact my heart leapt when I saw this one http://www.iradaarts.com/wall-decals/Eat-Drink-Praise.html . I think its great that you can customize as well. I didn't care for the reed one as wind instruments are not halal in Islam but I know sufis have a different take on it.

  3. Thanks for your kind words!

    Regarding the reed design, the poem is not about wind instruments (I personally avoid them at all costs) but is focused around the theme of having an intense longing to return to one's land of origin. As children of Adam we all know very well that our original homeland and the place we long for are one and the same. Like almost all poems, it makes use of personification and metaphors to discuss a deeper meaning beyond the subject it's describing.
