Custom Framed Art

Captivating Art

Captivating Art
We at THE FRAME STUDIO had a lot of fun with two cool client's of ours who have a three very interesting paintings done by artist Loui Jover.  Their idea was to frame the art to protect them after the damage that they had sustained while being unframed and folded during numerous moves. The art was so powerful, that simplicity became the key for the custom framing package.  A modern bright glossy white frame was used to contrast the aged and weathered look of the pieces to give them a more polished look.  Our client's loved the look, and so do we.

Back to Nature

Back to Nature
We at The Frame Studio love nature.  Even more so, we love framing anything nature related.  With this Torres del Paine print that a client recently brought in, we really love the combination of  the rugged linen textured top mat combined with the smooth shocking orange underneath paired with the weathered black frame to make an amazing custom framed piece.  It really makes us want to put on our hiking boots and do nature stuff!

Michael Jackson and His Art

Michael Jackson and His Art
We at The Frame Studio are always fascinated by singers who are also artists.  Is it possible to have that much talent in one person?  Sure!  Look at John Lennon, Jerry Garcia, or Marilyn Manson - their art even seems to echo their music in mood and ease.  What about Michael Jackson?  Well, a new client came in to The Frame Studio recently to frame two of Michael Jackson's prints.  We had no idea that he was an artist, too!  Working along with the client, we found great custom framing combinations for both pieces. The glossy black frame accentuates the swirling lines of the image, while the pi...

The New HARLOW Collection

The New HARLOW Collection
A client brought in this beautiful serigraph by artist Martin Lawrence to THE FRAME STUDIO to change the custom framing.  The original frame was a black lacquer that really dated the piece.  We found that stacking two frames from the new Harlow Collection from Larson did the trick.  This art entitled "Concerto for Harpsicord" now has the true theatrical sensation that sitting at the symphony should invoke. We wanted to keep this piece for ourselves!

Add a Little Drama

Add a Little Drama
This beautiful original pastel of Myrna Loy (Artist: Maria Mitchell) recently came across our table at THE FRAME STUDIO.  The owners of the piece went for bold custom framing for this rich piece of art work using one of Roma's new Lavo frames.  When we combined the Electric Red frame with black and grey silk matting, it created a more dramatic look that works with the red in the art.  We enjoyed the final result so much, we didn't want to let it go!

Museum Treatment

Museum Treatment
When you have an extra special piece of art work, you want to make a statement with the framing.  We at THE FRAME STUDIO recently had this gem - know as a Picasso - come across our table.  The client wanted to custom frame it to show it's great importance and beauty.  A Roma Vintage frame in gold leaf was chosen to give it that museum look which was combined with a black linen mat, a Larson Chateau fillet, and museum glass to finish it off.  Now the richness of the colors is accentuated, and it looks like it was just pulled from the walls of The Louvre. We love framing exceptional  art!

The Perfect Frame for a Wonderful Gift

The Perfect Frame for a Wonderful Gift
A new client of ours brought in this beautiful Sansao Pereira painting that she received as a wedding gift.  When she was growing up, her best friend's parents had this original painting hanging in their home.  She admired it her whole life.  When her best friend heard she was getting married, her parents removed it from their wall, and shipped it to the client all the way from Brazil.  A wedding gift like that truly shows how much you are loved, doesn't it? The client had looked at numerous frame shops looking for the perfect frame.  She even brought numerous family members to help choose,...

Framing Greats

Framing Greats
One of our favorite framing clients - and very good friends - recently sent us something in the mail.  This special client has a very interesting and extensive art collection, and appreciates the importance of the perfect frame for the perfect piece of art. We understand why this article got his attention.  The article is about a framing star named Eli Wilner. Many people in the regular world, know very little about life in the framing world.  Did you know we have framing conventions?  It's kind of like Comic Con without the costumes.  If Eli Wilner were to show up at one, we at The Frame S...

Guy Harvey

Guy Harvey
Guy Harvey has been a favorite artist of mine since my dad bought me a t-shirt when I was a kid. Since then, I have always taken a liking to all of his paintings and this one was no exception. Not only is the painting beautiful but the frame compliments it so nicely it really takes it to that next level. The wooden frame provides a nice neutral color which is easy on the eyes. The insert is what sets this piece apart from other framings though, it has a copper color that looks like its beginning to oxidize. This color combination is the perfect segue between the frame and the painting. The met...
