Custom Framing Projects

Art Dallas is unlike other frame shops in that our frame shop team can create many unique and hard-to-find custom framing styles. We have a large selection of closed-corner, gilded frames, from 16th century to early 20th century, as well as contemporary styles in our 5,000 square foot showroom space. The Art Dallas art consultants all have the expertise to help suggest framing styles and techniques to perfectly complement your treasured artwork. Here are a few of our unique, custom framing styles: 

To complement today’s furniture finishes, mouldings are available in a wide variety of natural woods, from oak, to walnut, to natural cherry. Frame styles can even be combined, stacking one style with another, to create fresh, new looks that would be virtually impossible to find in a mass-produced frame. The sky’s the limit! Custom picture framing and art selection should be an exciting experience. Our ongoing mission is to stay on top of the latest trends in color and design so that we can give you the best advice possible.

From your favorite corkscrews, to personal treasures , shadow boxes present a wonderful array of memorabilia for daily viewing. One of our favorite designers brought a group of antique corkscrews into the gallery to be framed. Art Dallas created an attractive layout for these corkscrews that are now part of a beautiful installation.

Art Dallas can create a custom acrylic mount for your artwork in-house! Placing artwork between two custom-cut and smoothed pieces of acrylic is a fun framing option for a modern twist on displaying photography or fine art prints! Sandwiching the piece protects it from damage as opposed to a matted frame with no plexi barrier; it is an option for artwork of any size!

In addition to the bike frame alterations, Art Dallas created a working feature on this now stationary bike. The bicycle wheel was transformed into a working clock.  Which now sits behind the reception desk reminding everyone that it's always time to ride! 

A large frame was created for a hallway in this space. The wood panels with the bike chain served as accents around an existing work of art, making it feel much more road-worthy.

Art Dallas has worked with Acrylics for the better part of 3 decades! Acrylics in an Art Dallas framer's hand can be used in several beautiful ways. As a framing option, acrylic makes a major statement while staying classic. Printing on acrylic creates a new way to view a fine art print. The colors come out incredibly vibrant and it makes for a truly unique piece. Displaying your precious items is a solution to shadowboxes where you may miss all sides of your treasures.

Everything looks better dripping in gold. This piece was commissioned by Studio 11 Design. The Art Dallas design team took special care with the original musical works to create this gorgeous work!  

These natural elements add major glamour to any room. The cultured and regal aesthetic of this vibrant precious metal has proven to be timeless and enduring in its appeal. Décor pieces in rich gold are a lovely addition to a neutral environment, and appear luminous in the soft glow of diffused, natural light.

 

From flat, rectangular frames, to rounded, contoured styles, Art Dallas offers a selection of over 6,000 frames. The Art Dallas frame shop is known for its selection of moulding, creative use of materials, and professional results. Each design project, whether large or small, can be beautifully framed. 

With our relationships with frame manufacturers as well as our ability to create specific solutions to projects, the options are limitless. If you have previewed a molding that works with your project, let us know the frame number and, chances are, we already have a longstanding relationship with that manufacturer or can match the frame.

Bathroom Mirror

Art Dallas works in large-scale. In addition to artwork, Art Dallas provides full service custom mirror solutions. Art Dallas mirrors are framed to cater to the exact size specified for your project. Each mirror is fully customizable with frame moulding that can match your artwork solutions and décor. In addition, Art Dallas offers mirrors with beveled or non-beveled options.

Most people use a mirror everyday without thinking about its beauty or significance. A mirror is intrinsically neutral, neither traditional nor contemporary, and blends well in any interior. It can give the illusion of depth to a flat wall or even make the wall seem to disappear.

In the public rooms of a house, a mirror is about definition and decoration rather than checking one's reflection; in bedrooms and bathrooms, it's a practical necessity.

Custom Copper

Go beyond silver and gold (and avoid the slight brass overkill of the past) by incorporating a fashionable copper accent to your space. Metals are a great lightweight alternative to traditional art. Copper is the lightest of our artwork solutions and allows for a sleek and ultra-modern look and feel. Art Dallas prints custom images directly on the metals allowing the copper to shine through your image. Art Dallas also chemically ages copper to create the effect found in these works. Metals can be installed with standoffs or framed.

This custom copper piece was created on a mid-range scale for a senior facility as a statement piece. Custom-framed in an acrylic box and cut-to-size, these chemically aged, hand-cut copper pieces make a big impact in a space.

Finally, this custom copper piece was cut, printed, aged, and mounted in-house at Art Dallas! Metal works are one of Art Dallas' specialties. Each of the 150 individual copper pieces were cut  by hand and then arranged for the most beautiful aesthetic appeal. This work brought some serious sheen to the HD Expo 2017 booth!

Custom Lobby Bicycle Art

Art Dallas customized an antique bicycle for this beautiful lobby space. This was a first for the Art Dallas design team. We created several custom features for this corporate space. 

This client shared our love for antiques and mixed era spaces.  The French racing bike was well loved before it became the center of attention in the lobby.

The bike itself had several parts removed so it could hang on the wall as a work of art. This French racing bike is beautiful in its own right so the original colors and logos were not changed. However, it needed some custom flair so we created a hand-stained wood box to mount it to the wall as a beautiful statement piece. 

In addition to the bike frame alterations, Art Dallas created a working feature on this now stationary bike. The bicycle wheel was transformed into a working clock.  Which now sits behind the reception desk reminding everyone that it's always time to ride! 

A large frame was created for the hallway for the space. The wood panels with the bike chain served as accents around an existing work of art, making it feel much more road-worthy.

Use your walls as a canvas

Wall mural designs can speak volumes about the tastes and personalities of the heritage of the spaces they occupy; they also can tell the story of the owner, infusing the space with character like a piece of art.

Mix in antiques

The most dynamic, contemporary interiors are not confined to artwork of any singular look or period. Combining pieces that vary in period, shape, form, color, and culture and arranging them harmoniously creates interest, timelessness, and even some whit. We love the warmth, history, and grandeur that antiques can bring. Art Dallas has the perfect pieces that will give your space the right amount of antique influence.

Authentic organic impact

The frame shop at Art Dallas is known for its selection of moldings, creative use of materials, and professional results. Art Dallas makes an effort to preserve the traditional, handcrafted custom works.

From leather to custom wood, Art Dallas creates custom work from many different substrates.  

The large, wooden works of art mark the space with a warm, inviting aesthetic, while big, bold wood works will never go out of style. Trending this year are beautiful wooden finishes that can be accomplished several ways. While one of our in-house selection of frames is a beautiful solution, a hand-painted finish still achieves a high-end style and lends it to a lighter budget.

Use texture to make neutrals pop

Aside from creating contrast with color, texture is a subtle way to bring new drama into a space.  

One thing you will never catch a stylish space without is beautiful artwork. It's a necessary investment you can not skimp on. Whether it is a classic original Monett or a graphic design custom-created for your space. It's not about the piece but the commitment to the art.

Find your One-of-a-Kind

If you don't remember anything else, the artwork matters the most. While large originals can be a budget buster, if you are smart about styling your space, an original from an up-and-coming artist will appreciate in value and add some major lux to your space. 

Allowing your artwork to take up space is the perfect way to give it a feeling of grandeur; talk about dramatic!

The introduction of art is a chance to infuse color and personality into a neutral palette. Think large-scale photography, paintings, or even mixed media. When it comes to statement pieces, go big or go home.

Custom Art Install

This project was beautiful from conception. Art Dallas partnered with HUE Design to create this glowing art installation in a hospitality space. 

We started by hand-finishing the wooden panels to match the interior of the space. The deep colors and dramatic lighting have a classic, luxurious feel. 

Individually spaced using a CAD drawing, each of the 740 individual hand polished rods were placed to create that beautiful glow in this space. Walking down this hallway is like walking into a modern art exhibit.

Custom Graffiti

file-20.jpeg

Art Dallas commissioned this graffiti wall, created by a Dallas artist well known for his graffiti work locally.  The letters were routed out of wood to stand out from the rest of the booth.  'Custom,' 'design', and 'create,' are all things Art Dallas does in-house.

 Our mission is to encourage and promote creative artistic expression both locally and throughout the world. We utilize the finest materials and designs to manufacture custom artwork and accessories in collaboration with the finest contemporary artists.

The artist commissioned for the graffiti portion of this work is a local Dallas artist you need to watch. Krik Garnett spent a week creating this work with the direction of the Art Dallas art consultants and design team. As a young progressive artist of modern hieroglyphics, fine art, and design, Kirk “NOIR” Garnett has opened up his mind of color to the world around him. While being influenced by many of the greats, Kirk has chosen to push the ideology of peace, unity, love, and having fun through his expression and teachings. 

“Art never ceases to amaze us! Its effect on your senses covers the gamut, it can evoke sensory overload to bliss and tranquility. “ Judy Martin (Founder)

Pinks in Decor

It's official: pink is losing its gendered connotations; it evokes so many feelings that everyone can relate to, from joy to lust, making for the perfect mood-enhancing paint color. Pink has shape-shifted into a stronger, more complex version of itself. We are seeing designers developing more spaces with sophistication, power, and subtlety utilizing shades and tones of pink more than ever before. 

Interestingly, pink is the only primary color with its own moniker (it is technically pale red) but the psychological effects are much different to its passionate foundation shade. In a study carried out in the late 60's, it was noted that color affects muscle tone, and that staring at the particular shade, Baker-Miller pink, after exercise, lowered the heart rate, pulse and respiration more significantly than other colors. The color is both soothing and aesthetically pleasing, making it a great choice for the living room or bedroom.

minimalist pastilles

2018 is ready to give way to a new minimalist palette. Soft, washed pastels like mint greens and sandy pinks will totally reimagine design spaces this year. 

In art, pastels are a specific type of medium. They are colors with low saturation but not necessarily the light, delicate colors we think of as pastel colors. While many pastels are light, they do not have to be. Any color that has a lower saturation and a high value is considered a pastel. Subdued colors fall into the pastel category as well. 

Soft, washed neutrals, greens and sanctuary pinks work together to create harmony.

 

 

Pink as a power color

When we said millennial pink has, "been taking over décor," We didn't know it would take such a powerful stance in the design space. Diverting from loud bubblegum pink, millennial pink is meant to make a statement. 

To make a room feel larger, light to mid-tone shades are the way to go. Rich, saturated colors such as grey or chocolate brown tend to make a room feel small and cozy and bring the walls inward. In addition to color, consider the framing finish. Glossy surfaces reflect light, and this helps to expand the space.

 

 

Sophisticated blush

Abstracts on canvas are a gorgeous large-scale way to warm up your space. The pink tones in these 75 by 50 originals on canvas draw the eye and warm the space. A blend of pastel and neutral hues is a charming touch to your already fabulous space.
