Here at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design, we offer a wide selection of custom picture frames to help you display your art and photos in a way that highlights their best qualities. While many people associate custom framing primarily with wall-mounted frames, our team also offers an extensive selection of standing frames that you can display on your desk, end table, or any other horizontal surface. In this article, our team will provide a few tips on how to use standing frames in your interior design.
- Consider Style. Even more than wall-mounted frames, standing frames offer a wealth of possibilities when it comes to style. No matter what look you are trying to achieve in your space–rustic, modern, classical elegance–there are standing frames that are perfectly suited to that aesthetic. From the highly ornamental to the sleek and modern, you can find frames for any style here at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design.
- Play with Shape. Another area where standing frames offer greater possibilities for creativity is with shape. You don’t have to be limited to standard rectangles, but can instead create visual interest with round frames, heart-shaped frames, or even whimsical shapes such as stick people or the letters of the alphabet.
- Experiment with Color. We at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design also encourage you to play with the color of your standing frames or the photos inside them. One styling technique that we’ve seen used to great effect is placing black and white photos into colorful frames to play with the contrast, and some even take this further and pair photos and frames of opposite colors together for a pop-art feel. Of course, this is just one suggestion, and we are happy to help you explore your options further at our gallery.
