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.

This Affordable Art Trend is Becoming a New Classic

Have you noticed that botanicals are making a big comeback? Maybe it has something to do with how plant-crazy ladies and gents are lately. To be fair, botanicals never really went away; it has to be their versatility that keeps them on trend. Most people, even those of us critical of mass-produced art, appreciate the graphic impact these pieces make, even when they're not the real deal. Vintage bookplates or pressed botanicals are obviously ideal, but there are tons of great reproductions on the market: big and small, cheap and pricey. And better yet, botanical prints impress wherever you put them. Need proof?

 

You fill up a large amount of wall space with only three pieces, and the blank background feels bolder and more modern than some of the smaller, daintier botanicals. These guys can stand on their own. These 3 bright originals on canvas are gallery wrapped and give this corner a floral glow. 

Canvas provides an elegant and stylish look and feel that has withstood the test of time. In keeping with that tradition, Art Dallas  provides printing and stretching canvas services that will add to the ambiance and style of your project. Art Dallas has a full gallery of original works of art!

Botanicals don't always have to be big and bold though. In fact, it's often easier to find smaller botanicals. But with the right framing smaller florals or botanicals can be the perfect fit.

Enlarged and separated this photograph becomes more than just one shot. This statement wall would not give nearly the stylish impact without a colorful canvas. 

Art Dallas has a beautiful collection of artwork that can be cropped and printed on many different art medias.  Looking onto a landscape is the perfect escape from that city space. Art Dallas prints on paper are a cost efficient solution for providing beautiful artwork to your project. 

 

 

Custom framing is a large part of our business...we've created beautiful work  continuously under the same family ownership since 1988! We specialize in the individual custom framing project.

If botanical artwork isn't your style there is always room for florals in the framing. With ornate framing any piece can create a fun flair to any style. Art Dallas provides a full range of picture frames to choose from. Our fully custom framing allows the client the flexibility to design concepts and develop sizes that fully integrate into their space.

Let's Talk Framing

Frame design encompasses so much more than simply putting a frame around your picture. The size, color, texture, and style all work together to enhance your artwork, while simultaneously complementing your unique personality and style. But the quality of the materials used will work to ensure that you will be enjoying your art for many years to come. When thinking about how to frame something, keep in mind, your art piece will always look its best if it is framed for the art and not for the room it will be going in. The decor of the room may change over time or you may decide to move the piece of art one day. 

With the right matting and frame, the framing package can become a work of art in and of itself. However, care should be taken that the design does not overpower the art by drawing too much attention to itself. Some may mistakenly take this to mean that the frame should always be small, or simple, or that the mat should only be a small border in some neutral tone. Not true. By taking into consideration the color, size, style, and visual texture of your artwork, the frame design will become part of the art, enhancing the piece as a whole. Detailed or busy art pieces are best displayed in simple frames. Simple or not so busy art pieces are enhanced through more ornate frames. Mirrors can handle very detailed and extravagant frames.

THE FRAME
As with matting, the frame serves multiple purposes, both aesthetically and functionally. The frame lends strength to the frame package, adding structure that allows the art to be protected from the environment. A multitude of styles, colors, textures, and sizes are available in frame choices today, so your art can be framed to match virtually any décor. Bamboo-style mouldings can be used to great effect on Asian-inspired art, while olive wood veneers can be used to compliment that painting purchased in Italy. 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!

The Art Dallas frame shop is known for its selection of moldings, creative use of materials, and professional results.The frame shop has over 6,000 frames to choose from. Each design project whether large or small can be beautifully framed.

Leather Wrapped Framing

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.

This week we watch the craftsmanship in the art Dallas frame shop. He hand wraps a flat modern frame in beautiful leather. Creating a custom frame for a custom space!

This process is careful and well planned. The Art Dallas Inc. Framers pay special attention to detail when creating custom works such as close corners and hand wrapping leather frames.

Leaving no room for error the framer measures, and cuts the leather to match a corner sample of the frame to be wrapped. He then carefully folds the organically tinted leather to wrap the frame. Hand wrapping a frame is an artisan process. We won’t give away the technique but you can find more examples of art dallas work in our showroom.

 

Art Dallas has over 6,000 molding samples to choose from in the showroom.

When framing a piece of artwork great care is taken to complement not only the work of art but also the space in which it will hang.
