Hand Gilded Frames

This imposing triptych painting is a feature work in the private dining rooms of London's prestigious Ivy Restaurant.

We collaborated with both The Ivy and artist Sebastian Horsley to develop a unique design that enhances the work without overwhelming.

Each piece is framed individually whilst presenting one iconic artwork that sits in harmony with the signature interior of The Ivy.

The elegant frames are gilded with gold leaf, whilst the deep sides are hand painted to subtly reflect the colour of nearby artworks, unifying the overall impact.

Gilding is a centuries old craft, using layers of gold leaf, painstakingly applied by hand, to achieve a luxe finish.
