Our range of picture frames

We have an extensive range of contemporary & classic picture frames & moldings to suit any requirements. Pop into the shop to have a chat and see our selection of high quality frames - if we don't have anything you like we have a huge range that we can order from.

Choosing the right frame

Choosing the right frame and mount for your artwork is crucial and is determined by a number of factors - the visual style of the artwork, where and how it will be hung & your own aesthetic preferences. Using our expert knowledge and experience we will discuss a range of options that will create the best & most suitable presentation of your artwork.

Quality & craftsmanship

Each frame is handmade and finely crafted by us, in our workshop on site, using traditional picture frame making tools and mouldings, handpicked by ourselves for quality and finish. To enhance and preserve your artwork, we cut, mitre, pin and lovingly finish each piece, to produce a picture frame of the highest quality.
