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.

Come and have a look

There’s nothing better than mixing and matching our samples in real life

Expertise

Apart from frames, we also stretch canvasses, cut glass and mounts to size and make bespoke plinths for sculptures.

Colours and finishes to match your home

We can paint any frame in any colour of your choosing. The Farrow & Ball range is one of our most popular options.

This unusual #1950's oil from #Sweden was framed in #Oak, with an Oak fillet to match. The Oak was toned down to give a #retro look and the background mount was linen. ...

We recently framed a complete set of four Muhammad Ali, 1978, screenprints by #AndyWarhol (1928-1987) in colours, on #Strathmore Bristol paper, each signed in ink by the artist and numbered 50/150. Each Sheet: 40 x 30 in (1016 x 762 mm). The frames were made from a 50mm square section and glazed with #Optium from @truevue ...

Our team created from scratch this stunning #Edwardianstyle #sweptframe with #runningornaments all in #goldleaf. The #mount has a couple of #debossed lines, applied by hand. The picture is a beautiful and incredibly detailed watercolour by #GeorgeGoodwinKilburne (1839 – 1924) an English genre painter specialising in accurately drawn figures. He favoured the watercolour medium, although he also worked in oils, pencil and initially trained as a wood-engraver. ...

Earlier this week we made some frames for @dioneverulam to be shown @cricketfineart. Dione specialises in #multimedia #collages. This week's works were all ski themed.

Something we do a lot. Bronzing parts of a frame to give them lustre. While it's called bronzing, the process is the same whatever the colour... gold, silver, bronze or copper. ...

This #pictureframe uses internal illumination from #LED lights to create the intense glow on the highlights. Very dramatic. The artwork is by @sirishill. ...
