Architectural Picture Framing

Handmade gold leaf frames

"less is more"

Using basic rules of scale and proportion, we create frames of extreme clarity and beauty. Wood, metal and lucite come together with stains, lacquer and gold leaf to strike the right balance between the art of the frame and the free flowing expression of art.

We understand the artwork you display is an integral part of interior design; it amplifies tastefulness and lifestyle. Our goal is to design enduring picture frames that compliment you as well as your art.


Selecting picture frames at Acanthus & Reed is an interactive experience; we ask questions, listen, and make recommendations based on your expectations, never on what's in stock. Our frames are all made to order.

While there is never only one right way to frame a picture, there are many ways to get it wrong. With gentle guidance and common sense you'll choose a frame that works for you, fits your budget and suits your artwork.
