PRODUCTS & SERVICES
Frames believes that every piece of artwork that passes in
and out of its doors is precious to its owner and should be treated
carries all well-known lines such as Roma,
Caxton and Nielsen
Metal, and we are proud to be a Larson
Juhl partner (as seen in Architectural Digest, Condé
Nast House and Home and other design magazines). We also
collaborate with many local, national, and international artisans-for
hand crafted frames. Our suppliers are eco-conscious and purchase
their wood from countries who re-forest. We carry Tru Vue glass, and Cyro acrylics. These products include many
specialty items such as museum (anti-reflective and 99% UV protected) glass and plexi and Ultra
Clear (super-white with UV protection).
With more than 5000 corner
samples in the shop, we also carry catalogues and can purchase any
molding offered in the U.S. market.
Our studio is known for its Gallery line of frames. Made of specially
milled hardwoods, these reflect current and enduring trends in
framing. Most woods are native to North America and maple,
wenge, rosewood, cherry, ash, oak and walnut. We also carry Honduras
mahogany, basswood, birdseye maple and purple heart, to name a few.
These are specially milled for our studio. Employing 'Old World'
techniques, the frames are hand-finished with
natural dyes, inks and then waxes.
Acid-free backing, acid-free 'rag' museum matboard, and UV glazing are
standard materials used. Because of our high volume and storage
capacity, Chelsea Frames is able to offer these higher end materials
at a reasonable cost. In a survey conducted by Decor
magazine, our prices fell at or below the national average for a
standard 16"x20" framing project. This puts us at a very
competitive edge for Manhattan. We believe in taking the time to
explain to our clients the benefits of using these materials to
preserve and protect their artwork.
Chelsea Frames offers framing
solutions from the simple to the complex. Our services include:
Mat and glass replacement
