When we began the business in 1981, we started off building simple, elegant, gallery style frames, mostly for our Artist friends in Boston’s Fort Point artist neighborhood. These handmade, contemporary “cap mouldings,” distinguished by their spline-corner joinery, are still at the heart of our framing business.
Our Contemporary Frames (CT) are available in beautiful natural hardwood finishes like maple, cherry and walnut, as well as over 40 different solid lacquer colors, including a set of whites, off-whites and grays that we call our “Museum Colors,” finishes that have been manufactured to match Rising Museum mat boards. These solid lacquer finishes are exceptionally smooth and are of the finest quality. Our CT frames are a timeless, classic gallery-style option. Built for museum quality framing, they possess a singularly clean and contemporary appeal.
