Ever since I have found out that Megan Markle was engaged to Prince Harry, I have shamelessly been bingeing on Suits on Netflix. Being interested in DIY and interiors, I’ve noticed things on the program that others might not. Like the fabulous giant patent art hanging on the wall in Rachel and Mikes flat. One of them is an old box camera and another typewriter.
I do love the trend to hang patent art prints of everyday objects on the wall. If you have a particular interest or hobby you will easily find a patent that would match it, whether it’s photography, guitar patents, sewing, tennis, etc. I bet whatever it is you will be able to find something out there that’s related.
Being interested in photography I especially lovely the patent art of old-style cameras. Patent prints of camping and sports equipment such as racquets and bats look great on the wall, especially in dens and man caves.
I’ve seen the patent art decoupaged to furniture and trinket dishes and it looks really good. I’ve even made some cool kitchen patent DIY placemats for my home.
Fun On Trend Printable Patent Art For Your Home
Most of the patents found on google patents are simple black and white drawings. However, it is easy to transform these images into patent art inverting the images in a package such as Photoshop to create a blueprint effect.
As the results of a Google patent search can be overwhelming and time-consuming to pinpoint the exact image you would like. I have done the work for you and curated a collection of retro patent art that would look good in any home.
The images on google patent searches are .png files. Just click on the patent title you want and it will take you directly to the relevant Google page where you can download the image for your own personal use.
To convert the png images into jpg images is very simple. Just upload the png image into Windows Paint (it comes free with your Windows software). Then in the file menu click save as and choose the jpg extension before clicking save.

This box camera is very much like that patent art print I spotted on Rachen & Mike’s wall in Suits.

What about some patent art of a Singer sewing machine for your craft room.
Another fabulous patent image for the office this time one of the humble paper clip. There are more cool vintage art supplies and stationery images on Pictureboxblue.
This is a classic, the original patent image for Thomas Edison’s electric light bulb.
A retro roller skate patent design would look fabulous in a teen bedroom. Who new that the roller skate went as far back as 1881?
I will be getting a print out of the Shuttlecock patent image for my home as my husband and boys are all badminton obsessed and play regularly at a high level.
I’ve even tried to find ways to upcycle their badminton shuttlecocks.
I’m not sure if this is the original coke bottle design but it looks very similar.
I admit I love this patent for a time chart just because it has a map on it. I tend to love anything with a retro-style world map on it.
Finally, this patent for a reading lamp would look great in any home. I’ve also shown how the patent art would look if you invert it.
Personally, the roller skate patent is my favourite and I’m going to download it and frame it for my son’s room.
