Talk for Interior Designers at London Art Fair

Join us for our talk at London Art Fair - press release below:

‘Picture framing is an area that is often underestimated in Interior Design’ says Matthew Jones, Managing Director of master frame maker John Jones. ‘The earlier we’re involved in a project, the more successful the art will be. Its not just about framing a work of art to look amazing, its about connecting it with the interior too. We work closely with designers to develop handmade frames that are statement pieces, enhancing both the art and the interior’. With an impressive portfolio of clients including Candy & Candy, Ralph Lauren and David Collins, John Jones are the experts when it comes to frame design and art installation.

On 13th January join John Jones as they share their knowledge on framing for interiors. As well as covering the key elements to consider in frame design and installation, John Jones will present recent case studies including The Connaught Hotel, The Ivy, Luciano’s restaurant and various residential projects, talking through their design approach and specific considerations.

John Jones will discuss design components such as frame shapes, materials and finishes, as well as the more subtle elements in creating impact such as proportions and glazing. The design options are infinite, from a wide variety of FSC timbers and welded aluminium and brass to Perpsex boxes and hand gilded gold and silver frames. As well as the highest quality mount board the frame designers often specify silk and linen backings, or even coloured perpsex for more contemporary works. All of John Jones’ designs can be applied to mirrors.
A family run company with over forty years experience in framing for the worlds of fine art and interior design, John Jones are based in London. Their team of eighty includes designers and craftspeople who specialise in traditional skills as well as the latest conservation techniques. Their frames can be found in museums and private homes around the world.
