H/M “Artist Series” Seamless Corner Frames
In addition to an extensive selection of standard framing materials, we also offer our own exclusive line of hand-crafted seamless corner frames. These frames are hand finished, starting with raw wood mouldings. Each frame is assembled, sanded, then hand leafed and toned with custom finishes to compliment your art. Choose from many combinations of gold, silver, black and distressed finishes, each one a truly unique “custom” frame for your home.
Home & Office Art Consultations
Our staff of experienced art consultants are available for home and office appointments. We will assess your needs and help coordinate art selections to your personal interests, decor and budget. If you are already working with a designer, we are happy to assist them in finding appropriate art pieces for your interior. We believe that art is the most personal part of your environment. It influences the mood of your room and reflects the image of its inhabitants more than any other single element. Many people make the mistake of leaving their art selections until the end of a design project. We suggest you use our expertise from the start, avoiding the limitations of matching your art purchases to a certain group of fabrics or color schemes. In this way, you will acquire a collection of art which will reward you with many years of enjoyment.
