Frames & Framing

Bringing the designer-maker studio tradition to picture framing, we provide beautiful handcrafted hardwood frames as well as sensitive intelligent custom framing design and full framing service. These are “closed-corner” frames and are made to order and from scratch. At our showroom we display hundreds of designs and constantly develop new ones, but because our capacities are unlimited we’re able to provide completely individualized framing — a setting in perfect sympathy with, and unique as, the picture. Frame styles range from delicate “drawing” frames to massive architectural designs, from plain and simple to detailed and more decorative. Techniques include fine joinery, sensitively shaped and proportioned profiling, hand-carved and painted details, and gilding (directly on oak — a favorite period treatment). We urge you to visit us, if at all possible, with your artwork — but we’re also fully prepared to meet your needs by mail order.

While custom framing, and customized frames, are the heart of our work, we also offer frames all made and available for purchase.


Due to the coronavirus emergency, the physical frame shop is closed through April 7. However, we continue to serve our customers by phone and email,
using our extensive website. Learn more…
