Q1. How do you decide the best solution for each of your clients?
A fine frame should integrate and provide a link between the painting ( art ) and the surrounding. The frame is an essential part of interior furnishing. With over 30 years and thousands of satisfied clients, we let our experiences with natural instincts guide us through the process of finding the best solution to each of our clients’ needs. Each day brings a lot of interesting items to be framed.
