Rotating Frame Set

It’s nice to have a few personal photos in frames scattered around, unless you’re a severe minimalist, in which case those same pictures of family and friends would give you a serious bout of itchiness. Maybe do yourself a favor and clean up that clutter of photo frames by replacing several frames with just this one Rotating Frame Set. It holds ten photos or artworks, and each frame rotates on a wood dowel for vertical or horizontal presentation. On sale now from MoMA Store for $39.95 (contrast that with the sold out $85 tag over at Dwell Store).

Frame Drawing Pad

A quick framing job is just what your drawings need, because, let’s face it, you’re not a famous artist (yet). I’d suggest scattering a few of these around the house for friends and family to play Picasso and possibly leave you some excellent little cartoons that you’ll cherish for years… or throw away as soon as they leave the room, it’s up to you.

Rope Frames by Dollinger and Fleveau

Yes, these frames are a little more expensive that what you may be used to, but they’re made of cotton rope (probably by hand). Traditionally used as piping in furniture, the cotton rope is used in a traditional style to playfully mix historical periods. Frame whatever you choose- a picture, a mirror, or leave it empty as a piece of art on its own.

T-frame T-shirt Display

Now, some might say that framing a favorite t-shirt is for a 20-something’s decor, but we’ll politely ignore them and carefully put ours behind this frame from Umbra. Never say donate! (Never say donate to the one (or two) worn out shirts that are worth keeping, that is, but donate the heck out of the clothes you don’t wear.)

Nearest is Dearest Picture Frame Set

If you’re still searching for a Valentine’s Day gift, listen up. Unless you have the time to make something thoughtful (like your own valentine notebook), do not, I repeat, do not, resort to a heart shaped box of chocolates or fluffy teddy bear. It lacks all kinds of imagination and is just plain wrong. You can do better. Perhaps pick out a picture frame, or two, such as this Nearest is Dearest Picture Frame Set, and choose a few special photos of you and your sweetheart together. Print them out (high quality setting, mind you), write a heartfelt note and call it a day. Unless you’ve a high maintenance significant other, you’re off the hook until next year.

fotoflōt

Not sure if you’ve heard of fotoflōt yet, but I recently received a sample (fall tree scene above) and am pretty pleased with the quality and appearance. I’m planning on switching it out to a personal photo once I decide on which one, but I thought I’d share with you in the meantime how it looks on a wall. It’s nice that no glass or frame is needed, giving more of a modern stream-lined look, and the magnetic attachment means you can easily cover up unsightly electrical boxes, as some people have done. You can use any of your online images from an existing account (like picasa, kodak gallery, etc.) or you can upload them directly into fotoflōt’s site to create your image.

Hanging is a snap literally. You just attach the mounting bracket to the wall using the included hardware, align the magnetic cups on the back of the print to the magnetic discs on the mounting bracket, and snap your fotoflōt print is mounted firmly in place. And when you want to display a new photo, simply snap off one print from the mounted bracket and snap on another.

Sizes range from 7.5×10 to 15×30 from squares to panoramas. Some sizes can be ordered with either a wall bracket or desk stand option.

Desk Option: $50.00-$90.00 depending on size
Wall Mount Option: $50.00-$235.00 depending on size
