Floater frame for a highly designed Aztec-esque painting

We framed this Aztec-esque painting in a distressed wooden floater frame to show the edges of the art work and play on. This way the geometric design on the edges of the painting are kept fully visible and the gap between art and frame creates a nice separation.

That and so much more we can do as your neighborhood frame shop in San Francisco. Come see us anytime at our Gough Street or Church Street location.

Feeling spooky framing this crow!

Halloween is coming up and this crow from our friends at Creativity Explored here in the heart of San Francisco has us feeling spooky!!

For this outstanding watercolor painting we designed a custom frame consisting of a thin black frame with silver accents for a bit of shine and some matting with a black bevel for some contrast!

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.
