Larson-Juhl's new Stitch collection is inspired by the great resurgence in all needle arts, including cross-stitch, quilting, needlepoint and embroidery. Stitch's vast array of finishes is derived from the best selling colors from top craft thread manufacturer, DMC Floss. The Stitch collection's finishes feature matte tones with natural wood toned back edge that work perfectly not only with needle arts, but also floral art, kid's art, landscapes as well as both modern and traditional artworks. Stitch is a FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified collection. The collection is available in twelve finishes whose names are matched to thread of the same name from DMC, including Christmas Green, Pumpkin Orange, Light Citron Green and Medium Cranberry.
Biltmore Collection by Larson-Juhl
With a frame from the Biltmore Collection by Larson-Juhl, you can have all the grandeur and tradition in your own home. Inspired by Biltmore’s beautiful antique frames, the frame collection’s ornamentation is created by century-old compo wheels and a six step hand-finished process that includes several layers of paint, leaf and patina. The Biltmore Collection is the first Programe for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) certified moulding in the framing industry.
Taking its design cue from the breathtaking landscape surrounding the historic Biltmore house, the new Olmsted Collection by Larson-Juhl is inspired by Fredrick Law Olmsted, the landscape architect behind the grounds of the Biltmore Estate as well as New York City's Central Park. The Olmsted collection is a PEFC certified collection and the third Biltmore-inspired frame moulding collection by Larson-Juhl. PEFC, which stands for Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification, traces the chain of custody of lumber product from forest to final product. The Olmsted collection features classic Acanthus leaf ornamentation, which has been an important element in architecture for centuries. Olmsted is available in four finishes, ranging from traditional Gold and Silver to more contemporary finishes of Deep Bronze and Iron.
Inspired by the historic rooms and aged papers of Biltmore’s Library, the Artique Biltmore Collection of conservation matboards offers a unique variety of rich neutral colors that will enhance many elegant frame designs. Larson-Juhl is pleased to note that the Artique Biltmore Collection is the first Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified matboard in the framing industry.
Timeless design that's at home in the present - that's the hallmark of the Nurre Caxton Contemporary Classics line. In times past, interior decorating was all about making an entire living space conform to the style of a certain period or movement. But today's interiors are different. They boast a combination of tastes - old blended with new, traditional mixed with modern - crafting harmony from a palette of diverse elements and adding a new sense of character and personality to the contemporary home. This fresh, eclectic manner of decorating allows each room to reflect its own variety of tastes and textures, lending a completely individual flair to every space.
Classic furniture and contemporary lighting fixyres, carved woods contrasting with simple metal lines... in today's interiors, these elements are no longer out of place side by side. Mixing styles of the past and the present has become a popular way of making one's house into a comfortable, stylish and uniquely personalized home.
Nurre Caxton's new Contemporary Classics wood mouldings bring this movement full circle. Each moulding in each new collection combines an elegant element of past with a shape or finish that's truely modern.
Bold is Better
Because Bold is Better we've stepped Outside the Frame with this signed Katy Perry photograph. We've floated the photo on a bottom mat called sunshine from the Artique - Larson Juhl mat collection. For the inner mat we've selected cerise from the Crescent mat collection and our top mat is called thistle from the Neilsen Bainbridge mat collection. We've selected a curved black metal frame from Neilsen's metal line called "Facets."
"Salsa". Shows the options when framing a print or copy of a piece of art. In this example we used a small inner red mat followed by gold fillet - small inner frame - a larger black mat and finished with a black and gold frame called Academie by Larson-Juhl.
“West End Work Horse” shows a picture framed with moulding to accent the image of the engine. Here we used a triple mat of blacks and greys and a texured moulding (frame) from Larson-Juhl called Sofia Iron. The wood moulding has the look of weathered iron.
“Dog Print” shows a framing technique in which the image is small and the mat is wide. In this example the image was approximately 7" wide and 5" tall. The mat, which is almost the same color as the background in the print, was cut 4" wide on the sides and top and 4 1/2" wide on the bottom - often called a weighted bottom. This wide mat accents the simplicity of the print. The piece is finished with a simple mahogany and black frame called Ascot from Larson-Juhl.
Often reframing an old picture or painting brings new life to a tired work. In this example we have an older oil painting in great condition but in an old out-dated frame that did not match the decor of the owner. Below you see the same painting in it's new frame.
We removed the old frame and added a 1 1/2" white linen liner to the painting. The piece was then mounted in a classic black Silhouette moulding from Larson-Juhl allowing the painting to "float" within the black moulding.
