Contemporary Gilding

We recently framed this beautiful abstract print with a contemporary gilded frame. Firstly, we chose an antique white mat board to compliment the warmth of the art paper. We gave it about 3-4″ with a slight drop at the bottom for gravity. Then we chose a very simple profile, clean and elegant in any finish: ½ Face x 1-1/2″ Depth. And lastly to add the cherry on top, we chose to make the finish a clean sharp moon gold. We decided on moon gold for the warmth of the tone, which fits this piece perfectly, but also to set it off: to make it special. This piece is going to be featured in a prominent place in the client’s home so it had to be a knockout.

Neo-classical framing

Pictured here is an equestrian photo with a contemporary and decorative French-style frame. This frame is normally much wider, but we scaled it down to about 1″ from the usual 3-4″. It’s also typically done in gold leaf but we finished this one in a painted matte antique white.

This is a good example of taking a classical style, changing a few key elements, and now it’s neo-classical.  This gives the piece a youthful air about it, which this piece needs, bringing it into the 21st Century.

Contemporary Flat Cap Frames

Our contemporary flat cap frames come in a variety of finishes, widths and depths. We carry every shade of white from brightest white to creamiest cream. We can paint our frames to match any Benjamin Moore color as well: pick a color, any color. We can even do the frame face white (or any color you want) with a natural wood side, like the sample in the above photo. Get creative!

The depth can be 2″ or 1″ or even 3/4″ to your liking. Some people like a frame to stand away from the wall and some people like a shorter frame, and we can do either to suit your needs.

We can do a thin 1/2″ face or 5/8″ or 3/4″ or 11/16″ or as large or thin as you like. All options are available.
