Subtle play with a maple frame on Chagall Art

IMG_3018.JPG

We really wanted the colors in this art piece from Chagall be playful and decided on a yellow stained maple frame! The white mat and museum quality glass just add to the viewing experience and conservation framing.

We love what we get in to frame here in our San Francisco neighborhood frame shop! Soon we will open our new location on Market Street in San Francisco, until then enjoy our Gough Street location.

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.
