At our framing studio at Ebury Bridge Road on the edge of Belgravia and Pimlico, London. We have many years of experience in framing and provide valuable advice on the most suitable frame for your artwork. We have a wide and varied choice of bespoke frames available to suit any period of artwork and budget from simple and contemporary to ornate and designer. We can frame all types of artwork from antique oil paintings and delicate watercolours to prints and football shirts, posters. We can make shadow box frames to display sports shirts, mementoes and memorabilia. Each frame is hand-built specifically for the piece of artwork to provide structural support and complement its contents.
For added touches of authenticity, the frame can feature period moulding, decoration and corner design, and hand carving to replicate traditional profiles. Our archives contain a wide range of traditional profiles and mouldings that can be size-matched to your artwork. Frames can be gilded in gold and silver leaf. This can be hand-patinated and aged to match any period.
Visit our framing and restoration studio at 5 Ebury Bridge Road where our knowledgeable framing experts can help, provide samples and advice about all aspects of picture framing for clients in Pimlico, Belgravia, Kensington, Camberwell, Woolwich, Chelsea and all over London. We have a huge range of frame samples to view and we can even create a digital mock-up of what your artwork and new framing will look like to email to you.
For watercolours and artwork on paper, we only use specialist acid-free museum mount, mat and backing boards, as well as tapes and adhesives, they are pH neutral and will not damage your artwork.
Adding a mount to works on paper or watercolours create depth and will enhance your artwork. It also provides space between the artwork and the glass. We have mount and matboards in a variety of colours.
Glazing protects your artwork from air pollutants, dust, moisture, temperature changes and physical damage. We can provide picture frame glazing in a variety of glasses from standard to UV and museum glass which provides the highest levels of protection from UV light and fading.

We only use mount board that are pH neutral and will not damage your artwork.
Artwork ages when it’s exposed to UV light but can also occur due to acidic tapes, mounts and backing boards. Often the artwork will start browning and stain due to contact with the inappropriate framing materials.
Think about the colours in the room the artwork will be displayed in, are there other framed pictures? Do you have other gold, silver or wood items? The answers to these questions may give you some ideas. Still stuck? Speak to our framing team they can offer valuable advice and can even provide you with a digital mock-up of the artwork in the frame.
It all depends on the environment the artwork will be displayed in, if your room is bright and sunny we would advise using TruVue Museum Glass to protect your watercolour or work on paper.
