We’ve recently moved to our new ‘framery’, next to Florian Rd, in a renovated railway arch between Putney Bridge Rd and Deodar Rd..

We frame pictures, prints and objects. Our frames are bespoke and made-to-order, designed to complement your artwork or home.

Whether it’s a window, float or shadow mount, we’ll make it, we stretch canvasses and make closed corner frames. Our frames are made from pre-finished mouldings, as well as raw timber. We hand finish timber frames in many styles and colours.


We’ve also made frames from reclaimed wood and other weird and wonderful materials. If you can imagine it, we can make it!

Our Framery is a renovated railway arch, between Putney Bridge Road and Deodar Road, near the Oxford Road/ Putney Bridge Road mini roundabout. There’s free parking right outside the Framery. Hope to see you soon.

Helpful and friendly

We don’t bite – whether this is your first frame or your twentieth, we can help you through the process.

Frames we’ve made, frames we love…

This lovely oil on board, by Putney artist Margaret Knott was framed in a shallow tray frame. Deliberately set back from the edges, our solution celebrated and highlighted the bashed corners of the artwork, which had been knocking around at the artist's house for some years! ...

These frames started off as two flat pieces of #roseandhollis moulding F5. We put two pieces of it at right angles to one another to form a T shape, from which the final frame was cut. Painted #paintandpaperlibrary Sand II, and fitted up with AR glass, the finished frames looked fab! ...

The artwork is John McEnroe, by American artist, the late #leroyneiman. The moulding started off as #roseandhollis A272, which we veneered in Bird's Eye Maple and stained to harmonise with the artwork. We then added a little sight-edge gold trim. ...

We ran up this bevelled profile on our bench saw and then water gilded the front edge. Minimal and beautiful! ...

The artist of this oil painting is @Malcolm Liepke, an #Americanpainter. We made this wide #rosetta style frame from three parts and then water gilded it with warm gold...looked fab! ...

#LawrenceToynbee, 1922-2002 was a fine all-round painter of sportsmen, landscapes and portraits. This oil painting of tennis players was #watergilded in #renaissancegold. ...

A tiny oil painting on plywood by the contemporary oil painter @rupertmuldoon. A little tray frame with front edges of only 8mm, #watergilded in warm gold. ...

This little 3D artwork from the studio of @kristjanaswilliams was framed in a white #boxframe with acrylic. ...

There's large and there's large! This #giantpictureframe measures 3.6 by 1.9 metres and was destined to surround a private collector's #WilliamScott oil painting. ...

The brief for this frame was to "wrap" the sculpture invisibly, protecting it without any visual distractions. We attached a bracket to the rear of the artwork that supported it on the wall and at the same time provided hangers for the #acrylicboxframe. ...

These artworks from @Kristjanaswilliams are inspired by the classic Victorian lepidopterists specimen trays. Kristjana uses the same concept, with her colourful paper butterflies, folded and layered, and pinned in place on either a white or gold base. The frame is @roseandhollis pp207, painted @farrowandball All White. ...

Our starting point for this frame was @roseandhollis #scoop #moulding A108. We painted it black, and finished in with #specialeffectswax for a rich patina. The internal edge was #bronzed (gold) and then a very deep window #mount with a painted front edge (made from @roseandhollis SC3) was added. The #JoanMiro artwork was floated under AR glass from @Truevue ...

This 120cm diameter #roundframe was made for a mirror. It's painted black with a hand finished #bronzed internal sight-edge scoop. ...

We like a challenge. We've just made this #revolvingpictureframe for a work by @kristjanaswilliams. It's a refreshing change to hang a framed artwork and not worry if it's horizontal on the wall! ...

We paid homage to the incredible watercolour work of @KarlMartens by creating this wide #watergilded frame. The Renaissance gold on a red bole give the cool white frame a shimmering warm edge.⁠ ...
