Many times, clients will come by with a dilemma . . . they love their art, but it doesn’t seem to work in their home. The reason is usually because a gallery-wrapped canvas is hanging without any framing around it.
A floater frame creates the illusion that the artwork is ‘floating’ within the frame instead of being covered by it. This is a great solution for those clients who want an elegant minimalist or modern look for their gallery-wrapped art. The floater frame finishes the edge—giving the art a completed look and a sense of space. It no longer looks lost on the wall or just ‘stuck there’.
More floater frame options are available than ever before, that go beyond the traditional very slim, wood stain to include metals in gold and silver. The frame widths of some floaters have grown to accommodate large-scale artwork, and new frame styles have angles or curves that really make the canvas shine.
