Robert O'Donnell  After 28 years as a picture frame manufacturer, I am now on my own and brokering deals for framers and galleries w/ the best frame makers nationwide!

Too Cool for Tuesday: Before the Show. My friend, Roberto, of @moldurartemolduras shared this photo of the runway set he and his staff created for @patriciabonaldi and her @patbo_official show for São Paulo Fashion Week. I’ve always thought empty frames / floating frames make a great artistic and dramatic statement in their own right. I’m glad I’m not alone! #fashion #week #saopaulo #brazil #runway #show #drama #set #doorways #floating #frames #moulding #length #chop #joined #import #creative #picture #framing #artistic #setdesign #outsidethebox #fun #creative #design #likeforlike #like4like

Too Cool for Tuesday: Fashion Forward. My amigo, Roberto, of @moldurartemolduras in Brazil loves to think outside the box. For Sao Paulo’s Fashion Week, top designer @patriciabonaldi asked Roberto to create three-sided pieces to “frame” her @patbo_official designs. Now, that’s ‘runway-ready’ framing! #wood #brazil #moulding #handmade #handfinished #frames #doorways #fashion #presentation #collection #art #southamerica #saopaulo #patterns #embossed #painted #metalleaf #antique #artisan #creative #import #mastercraft #traditional #contemporary #compo #fun #interiordesign #likeforlike #like4like

More Mercier Magic for Monday! My friends at @houseofmercier have been really working overtime to bring a modern and contemporary vibe to this stellar Peruvian line. Well, you can’t go modern without streamlined float frames and they’ve got these in spades! While available in most any of the Mercier leathers, these are three of the most popular! I love that leather is now full-blown contemporary. Floater sets are available! #wood #metal #core #handwrapped #handfinished #dyed #leather #hides #stretched #canvas #float #frames #corner #wrap #stitched #original #design #contemporary #modern #interiordesign #customframing #craftsmanship #leathercraft #master #artisan #peruvian #creativity #likeforlike #like4like

Monday’s Moment: And a big, warm welcome to New York @mercierandres! Andres has been making the rounds up the eastern seaboard this past week with new designs from @houseofmercier. Today finds him smack dab in NYC and his fans couldn’t be more excited! Now if only he was carrying this stunning, hand-tooled springtime newbie in a rich, green leather... Are you listening, Andres? 😉 #leaf #leafy #tooled #corner #design #natural #leather #cowhide #handmade #dyed #wrapped #custom #creative #peru #picture #frame #rich #craftsmanship #leathercraft #artisan #master #creativity #framemagic #contemporary #interiordesign #peruvian #creativity #nyc #like4like

Weekend Wrap-Up: Spring has barely sprung when thoughts turn to Fall ... well, maybe in Baltimore! My friends Deb and Meghan of @themitrebox, recently framed this exceptional F. Weston Hoyt landscape for a client. For this tranquil stunner they chose a classic RPF carving as brought to life by the artisans of @quattroframeworks. Besides the abbreviated carving, the real bonus is the nuanced wood finish that brings out the greens and the browns as found in the canvas! Beautiful! #carved #wood #olive #brown #stains #layers #handfinished #gold #lip #antique #dust #handmade #custom #creative #picture #frame #modified #design #craftsmanship #woodworking #mastercraft #artisan #craft #landscape #painting #canvas #traditional #interiordesign #like4like

Another Fun Frame: And then there’s Boba. Of all the Star Wars portraits @nwframing had the pleasure to frame, arguably the BEST of the bunch is this killer side view of Boba Fett! While all the pieces are perfectly matched to the @atomicframes style, this combo of frame and art is nothing short of spectacular! Kudos to Dennis and Chloe. It makes me almost like the bounty hunter! #starwars #bobafett #portrait #bountyhunter #starwarsfan #welded #steel #rivets #color #combo #rusted #antique #industrial #custom #handmade #picture #frame #craftsmanship #metalwork #customframing #creativity #contemporaryart #modern #interiordesign #fun #creative #movieart #like4like #likeforlike

Funster Friday: In a Picture Frame Far, Far Away. The staff at @capitolhillfc of Seattle had a client bring in a whole series of Star Wars inspired portraits to frame. Their first ‘reach’ was for the riveted, industrial samples from @atomicframes ... and the magic was obvious! No matter how many other samples they looked at, Coty’s welded steel frames were really the only choice. Perfect, they are! #jedi #starwars #portraits #art #yoda #obiwankenobi #welded #steel #rivets #block #industrial #fun #custom #handmade #picture #frames #color #combo #rusty #antique #distressed #raw #creative #interiordesign #craftsmanship #metalwork #maytheforcebewithyou #original #like4like

TBT to Rustic Elegance - When Copper Met Amara. Long ago I had the idea to create a deep, dark red wood finish as an alternative to Dutch black and dark woods. What I didn’t expect was that this new Amara finish would finally afford me the chance to play with Copper leaf on finished corners. Another happy accident!

TBT: Rise of the Rustic Period. I’ll always be grateful for my decades at RPF. Imagine having a crack team of master artisans always at the ready to help you realize your creative visions! Without these guys and gals I don’t know that the Rustic Elegance line (Pino & Bronzino [pictured], Banya, Mora and Amara) would exist today. It was one thing to design these original layered finishes in my head but quite another to see them come to life! #wood #cap #rustic #relaxed #elegance #art #pine #brown #stain #distressed #layer #finish #gold #22k #rub #antique #dusty #tbt #custom #creative #picture #frames #craftsmanship #woodworking #artisan #simple #interiordesign #like4like #likeforlike

Wednesday Wood: “You can be my Frame it doesn’t matter if you’re black or white.” Clients of @cedarowlframes now look at framing jobs ‘knowing’ they‘ll be playing with corner color splines. While virtually any solid shade is possible, sometimes you need to keep things simple. Erick of @framesandstretchers (who can work spline color into virtually any piece he frames!) is secretly monochromatic at heart. These Maple/ Walnut and Blackened Ash/ Maple combos are his two Cedar Owl go-to’s. Come to think of it, shouldn’t they be yours? #wood #gallery #cap #handmade #spline #corners #maple #walnut #black #ash #hardwood #picture #frames #custom #craftsmanship #carpentry #woodworking #creative #framing #design #contemporary #interiordesign #modern #simple #woodwork #color #spectrum #like4like #likeforlike

Two Acrylics for Tuesday: The French Mat Reborn! Since his @wcafexpo Debut, David Gallo of @vectormats has been swamped with orders for his truly original acrylic mats (and successfully juggling sample orders!). Two of the most popular are his French Mats 2.0! Clients are loving the drama of the Black, 12k & Red (available with Blue, Yellow, Green and Orange accents as well) and the softness of the Ivory, Gold and Aqua (or in the pastel shade of your choice). Let your imagination run free! #acrylic #mat #invention #oneofakind #gold #12k #22k #bevel #linear #accents #french #mats #reborn #bold #pastel #colors #handmade #craftsmanship #custom #creative #original #design #contemporaryart #modern #interiordesign #fun #imagination #likeforlike #like4like

Monochromatic Monday: Not Just for Siding! When prepping this collage I was struck by how varied the @stinky_metalworks aluminum finishes are. On the left is Roger’s original aluminum sample with a subtle mottled (textured) face. Top right is the brushed and powdered sidewall of a new Hicks-inspired piece. Bottom right is a patina’d floater inspired by Roger’s own powder-coated steels. All-in-all, aluminum is the new “it” frame! #metal #metallurgy #welded #aluminum #welding #modern #handmade #picture #frames #mirror #mottled #brushed #painted #patina #imagination #float #gallery #craftsmanship #metalwork #contemporary #sleek #mod #interiordesign #industrial #design #custom #creative #like4like #likeforlike
