Lavender flocked frame

We're continuing to have lots of fun experimenting with flocking. This time we've taken an ornate decorative frame and flocked it in soft lavender. Its very romantic and feminine - perfect for a boudoir...

We've shown it here with a chalk board, which gives it an interesting textural contrast, but it would work equally as well on a mirror or perhaps a brightly coloured poster.

The Hollywood Deco Frame

This beautiful frame is inspired by the glamorous Art Deco era.

Made from three sections of aluminium. The two outer sections have been patinated to achieve a gun metal finish to offset the steel finish on the inlaid section .

This design can be adapted with different patinated finishes and the inlay can be switched for timber or fabric. We think fake zebra skin would work well....

Artist Tamara de Lempicka's bold cubist style was clean, precise and elegant - all key qualities that we h
ave embraced in this new frame design.

The Botero Frame

This one off mirror was inspired by the curved sculptures of Colombian artist Botero.

At an impressive 2 x 2.3 metres, with a 14cm wide frame, it is a shining example of the large format projects that come through our workshops.

The frame has been hand gilded with 23 1/4 carat gold leaf on a red clay base. This has then been rubbed through with pumice powder to achieve a red glow, before being burnished by hand.

The furniture shown is shown by furniture designer Jens Risom who is represented by Rocket Gallery.
