Round Floating Frames Defined

Blog post describing the difference between floating frames and conventional frames.

Floating frames work well for artwork such as stretched canvas that require no protective glazing. To put it simply, the artwork inserts from the face on a floating frame and from the back on a conventional frame. A floating frame does not clip (cover) the art around the edges and a traditional or conventional frame will.

There is always a reveal (gap or dead space) between the artwork and frame on a floating frame design. Typically the requested reveal is 1/4″ inch.

Both options are available in painted MDF (shown above) or hardwood. More examples to come soon.
