ADJECTIVE Art & Framing builds custom-made contemporary hardwood frames for artists, collectors, galleries, and museums. We offer a personal relationship to guide you through the framing and finishing process, helping you to select the best materials for your piece.

Our standard line of mouldings are milled from sustainably sourced hardwoods into profiles which are engineered for effective preservation and elegant presentation. Though we have many stock profiles that are always on hand, we often modify these to match certain specifications, or mill unique profiles for clients. We regularly stock Ash, Cherry, Maple, and Walnut and use the natural colors and textures of the different species to match the features of your artwork.

We use the highest quality glass and acrylic glazing available and can help you decide which product is best suited to your needs. We also stock Peterboro 4-ply and 8-ply 100% cotton matboards, and acid-free backing materials for further protection.
