The Power of Design…

The Power of Design…
Somebody just recently brought this Ketubah in for framing.   Their wedding was a while ago, it was neatly packed and stored away for some time.  She searched and searched for framing ideas and frame shops on-line. She didn't just want to take her precious Art anywhere.   Finally a mutual friend and client of ours recommended The Frame Studio to her and she came in.  We frame a lot of different Ketubah's, wedding invitations or shadow boxes, but have to say, this is one of the most beautiful and unique pieces we have seen.  The challenge was to find the special colors and style to complime...

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,...

Hand Painted Italian Glass Tiles

Hand Painted Italian Glass Tiles
From time to time we all come across works of art that we are drawn to.  Often those art pieces are not framed and therefore there is no good way to display them.  So even though we love them, we tuck them away in a drawer, under the bed or in an already overstuffed closet. These two Picasso inspired, Morano Glass tiles were purchased in Italy during a family vacation.  Then they sat in a drawer for over a year.  She didn't forget about them, she just wasn't sure what to do with them. One of our frequent clients was a good friend of hers, they recommended she come see our local frame s...

One person could enjoy a more abstract style while the other might prefer more realistic pieces. Although thousands of couples in homes all over the world have managed t...

Repair/Makeover

Robert brought in this picture of a Bald eagle that he had hanging in his home for years.  He loved the piece but felt it needed a make over. With a little TLC from Mayra and Bela.  That eagle has a new lease on life. Robert chose to go with a Larson-Juhl Charcoal Antica, with a barely blue mat to accent the colors and was so pleased with the end result, he brought us a dozen doughnuts to say "Thanks!"
