Framing a memento from a day or simply framing a collection/collage of things you love - multi-opening mats can be a dynamic visual for your wall. Here we have a Masters flag and another golf piece from last year - a rare moment memorialized - the near mythic Hole in One.

It's an iconic image - how do you make it 'pop'? Boring black is of course the knee jerk reach-for, but why not have some fun with such a playful image? Here we've used +Universal Arquati Moulding's Chromo II profile in copper. Matched the color of the slim frame in the photo, but that texture was a dead ringer for Marilyn's hair!!

The lovely dental detail of the Sophia line from +Larson Juhl in Bronze is a subtle nod to the architectural subject in these two pieces.

Memorial framing is surprisingly common in framing. What isn't common is what ends up getting framed which is often as unique as the individual being remembered. It can vary from a photo, or a document, but this was a nice little piece that came through our shop recently - a dried wild flower, a type of daisy.

A frame from the Sophia line from +Larson Juhl  came to mind - the motif looks like feathers/leaves and is a subtle nod back to the botanical. The frame was deep enough to encompass the bud cluster and allow for a shadowbox.

Sure a bold painting would look great with a simple frame, but how do you handle a patterned frame?
A frame with tiny byzantine details would have burdened this painting and looked out of place, but keeping the pattern bold and simple matches the look and feel of the this cool still life.

Clash or clever? We took this cool painting and floated it on one of Bainbridge's Tatami Silk mats and framed it with a cool ribbed frame with red highlights from +Roma Moulding.  We love the mix in style, and we love the artwork by Zach Taylor (instagram:@Zach Taylor)

This is a very unusual piece that came through the shop. Vintage photo with a hand painted mat. Dated 1918, the Whitman Tortoise Shell frame, from +Larson Juhl  feels like someone found this piece in the attic from the day it was taken.  Understated cotton rag mat protects the surface of the painted mat from the uv glass. What a find at an estate sale! Instant family!!

Cool painting by Georigan artist Merab Gagliadze in +Universal Arquati Moulding 'Rustique' - a perfect and understated look that worked well with the textures of this painting.

Sadly, we didn't get a before photo, but this had really been abused in the hands of it's former framer. Among the problems: shallow frame, sewn down with heavy duty fishing line willy-nilly, stapled and elmer's to the back of the frame . . . awful. It took us over an hour just to get the piece out of the frame.
Silk poses a whole set of challenges, but antique silk is especially ornery. This childs kimono was gently sewn in place atop a cotton rag board. Nothing would hide the scars from its former framer, but the new tacks were hidden in the seams to lessen their appearance.
The photo (of the wearer circa 1920s) was given a mini platform and floated under the arm. 
The frame is Skyline from Omega - a beautiful and subtle warm silver which we felt harkened the deco feel of the time period.

Extremely popular profile from Universal Arquati! Many of the colors are on a slight backorder which is understandable! This versatile rustic frame suits so many types of artwork! Check out one of our more recent uses on this trippy canvas!
