Custom Framing: Before And After

What a difference a frame makes! Our client loves this piece but was over it’s original frame and wanted a custom frame that is more clean and modern.

So, here in our San Francisco Picture Frame shop, we lightened it up with a white wash hardwood frame that has a sharp and clean edge that lets the brown tones and shapes of the art come out even more! We love the result of this museum quality re-housing!

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.
