What are Floating Frames?

Floating frames are designed to display paintings done or photos printed on stretched canvas

Here at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design, we know everything there is to know about picture frames. Whether your frame is for family photos for your office desk or fine art for your dining room, our team can help you select the perfect frame to set your piece off to its best effect. One style of frame that has been gaining popularity in recent years is the floating frame, and in this piece, our team at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design will tell you all about it.

Floating frames are designed to display paintings done or photos printed on stretched canvas. The frame has its own canvas backing, to which the canvas of the artwork is mounted. This method of attaching the artwork means that the piece does not need to touch the frame itself in order to be securely fastened, creating the illusion that it is “floating” within the frame. The additional border that floating frames create between the art and the frame itself provides an extra element of visual interest to your display, giving it a three-dimensional effect that other framing methods can’t achieve.

Floating frames are highly versatile in terms of design, as they are available in a multitude of materials, colors, and styles that will allow you to match any decor scheme. They are a great way to give your art displays a clean, modern look, but can also add a breath of fresh air to a more classical style while still preserving a dignified atmosphere. If you are interested in the design possibilities of floating frames, give our team at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design a call.
