Every framing order at Fine Artisan Conservation Framers is unique with each customer having their own particular needs.
In this case study our clients required a frame for a large oil on canvas to be displayed at a private residence in Mayfair, London.
They wanted the frame to match the style of an existing leather and metal frame, so the painting would sit well with the rest of the luxury interior.
We sourced frame samples with different finishes which would suit the painting and which could be combined to build a similar combination frame.
After visiting the residence and consulting with our clients, they chose a 68mm wide flat Larson-Juhl 'Antique Brown' faux leather finished frame with a dark silver aluminium wrap frame adding a polished metallic accent on the outer edge. The LJ Angus Faux Leather frames are available in 'Antique Brown' (Dark Brown), 'Cognac' (Tan) and 'Dutch Black' in three classic profiles.
Our clients requested glazing and so we recommended Anti-Reflective glass with spacers to provide protection and superb clarity, especially since the painting has dark tones which will become highly reflective under regular glass.
Oil paintings do not need to be glazed, although glazing will protect the painting from the build up of dust over time which can damage the surface of the paint and then require professional cleaning.
The faux leather with polished aluminium successfully frames this painting by being both contemporary and traditional.
