Classic Picture Framing with a modern twist
We frame so many different pieces of art here at our shops in San Francisco and each photo, painting, canvas or object gets a frame that will be a good housing for the piece itself and also fit the clients taste and needs.
For these three images we wanted to show you how a classic frame design can be adjusted for a modern appeal:
The first image of an antique black and white photograph is framed in an ornate carved Art deco frame inside a distressed wood frame to keep with the antique feel while maintaining a modern line.
The watercolor painting of the koi fish is floated on a clean, light silk mat in a thin hand rubbed maple frame to show off the movement in the paper and keep it modern.
We love dogs! For this fun take on a classic still life we used an ornate gold frame with a matching fillet inside the fabric mat.
