A good quality frame protects your artwork, preserving it for many years to come. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you chose the perfect finish.
To ensure our hand-finished frames last a lifetime, we select our timber very carefully. Grown in a temperate climate, the raw ash and oak we use comes from sustainably-managed forests in North America, allowing it to mature slowly and achieve a consistent colour and grain.
If you like to see the grain of the wood, our solid ash frames have a beautiful artisan touch. They look great paired with a Modern master or Vintage poster. We carefully stain each frame with water-based paint (which is non-flammable and more environmentally friendly than oil-based paint) and apply a coloured lacquer which creates a deep lustre.
A natural oak frame is a classic choice that works particularly well with paintings from our Museums and Archives collection.
Oak also provides a beautiful surrounding for bright contemporary prints, giving modern pieces a timeless appeal. We apply a clear lacquer which creates a satin finish that emphasises the natural character of the timber.
Our cool grey ash frame is always a popular choice amongst interior designers as it is understated and smart. This versatile tone works with many colour palettes and is the best choice if you want a contemporary look and subtle frame.
We carefully stain each frame with water-based grey paint (which is non-flammable and more environmentally friendly than oil-based paint) and apply a coloured lacquer which creates a slick finish.
