Back to Basics
As our 40 Day Wood Sale winds to an end, we’re finishing off the sale with our oh-so popular and versatile Basics collection. This selection is the perfect go-to, do no wrong frame collection. These mouldings are 100% solid wood with eco-friendly resin finishes and stains. They feature streamlined, linear profiles and offer a high style at an economical price point. What we admire about this particular line of frames is this: they pair nicely with almost any artwork as well as almost any décor.
Here, we framed various types of artwork to illustrate just how adaptable this assortment can be. From paintings to pastels to graphite and photography, these frames look great with any medium.

For this drawing, we used Basics-Grey frame to accentuate the tones of the graphite on crisp white paper. We finished it off with a bright white mat, Porcelain (4754). The result is a refined, monochromatic look.

This lively photograph of a sea turtle obtained an effortless yet effective framing treatment. This was achieved by using a clean, white mat and a moulding with a simple finish and stain. We used frame 533517,Basics- Coffee and a continuous core, acid-free mat board. By keeping the frame dark and the mat white, we allow the colors in the photograph to really take center stage.
