What is a Muurmeester?
YOUR MUSEUM AT HOME
Muurmeesters makes it possible to admire your favourite paintings - for which you used to go to the museum - on your own wall every day. With a Muurmeester you can enjoy the unique works of Holland's greatest masters. You can choose the size of your Muurmeester yourself, which makes your work of art even more unique.
THE MUURMEESTER SYSTEM
A Muurmeester is a high-quality print on textile of an (old) master, stretched in an aluminum frame. These prints are available in all conceivable formats and are easy to change. A Muurmeester is a 100% Dutch product.
The Masterpieces of Muurmeesters are printed sharply on a sturdy textile that is wrinkle-free, colorfast and easy to clean. The fabric is provided with a special strip for easy application and exchange of the fabric in the frame.
At Muurmeesters, in addition to our standard textile, you now also have the choice for a velvet textile. The standard textile from Muurmeesters is made of a very sturdy, smooth fabric, which is perfect for the prints of the old masterpieces. Our velvet is thicker in material, has a softer appearance, a shine and therefore a high cuddly factor. All Muurmeesters from our collection can also be supplied in velvet.
Please note: The maximum width of velvet Muurmeester is 150 cm.

The Muurmeesters are delivered in sturdy, luxurious aluminium frames that do full justice to the paintings. These frames are 27 mm thick and available in aluminium, black and gold.

And the best part: these frames make changing paintings very easy! This way you can order several textiles and completely change the energy and appearance of your space, if desired. Adjust your textile to your mood, an occasion or the season with the interchangeable prints from Muurmeesters.
THE SUSPENSION SYSTEM
Wall brackets are supplied with the Muurmeester to fix the frame to the wall.
You can of course also hang your Muurmeester in other ways. Sometimes a Muurmeester is suspended from a rail system. It is important that you choose a hook that fits in the recess of the Muurmeester frame. We do not recommend the use of acoustic material with a Muurmeester that is hung from a rail system, because in this way the Muurmeester cannot be mounted tightly to the wall and the acoustic panel cannot always stay in place.
The number of hooks you use depends on the size of your Muurmeester. For sizes wider than 120 cm, we recommend using 2 hooks at the top. Do you want to mount your Muurmeester completely tight to the wall? Then you can mount 1 or 2 suspension hooks at the bottom of the frame.
When using acoustic panels, we recommend that you also use 1 or 2 hooks on the bottom.
THE ROUND MASTERS
We are sorry but due to extremely high shipping costs and vulnerability, the Round Masters cannot be ordered outside the Netherlands. At Muurmeesters we now also have Round Wall Masters. The round frames are made of the same sturdy aluminium as our standard Muurmeesters. Your round Muurmeester will be delivered ready to use in a velvet version. The round frames are available in the diameter sizes 70cm, 100cm, 130cm and 150cm and are only available in black.
THE VELVET MASTERS
On our website you will find our standard View our small velvet masters here. Furthermore, all our Muurmeesters are available in a velvet version. Velvet gives extra shine and strength to the Dutch Masterpieces and provides dynamic color contrasts. The paintings are given a high cuddly factor: they simply beg to be stroked. Do not be afraid to frequently touch these soft Muurmeesters because the velvet is very sturdy and easy to clean.
Because the velvet Muurmeester is not smooth woven in comparison with the regular Muurmeester, but has a pile, it gets more depth. It is important to know that the velvet has a nap by petting and touching. The pile of the fabric can be flattened but the nap in the material will remain visible. In our opinion, this gives the visibility to the velvet the beautiful 'cuddly' effect to the Muurmeesters. If you don't want a streak to be visible in your Muurmeester, it might be better to choose a Muurmeester with the standard textile.
