Frames

Pablo the Object Frame

Art is in the eye of the beholder…and this frame will enable you to behold different items of value as often as you wish.

It comes flat, you put in the screws, fold down the ‘shelf’ part of it and voila, you now have an object frame to show off whatever you deem appropriate to show off.

Landscape or Portrait.
40 x 28 cm wide or high (depending on the model)

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

Corner Frame

This would definitely add a little quirky interest to a corner. I’m thinking I’d like to frame my old prom picture with the corner right between me and my date. What was his name again?

Online Framing, Art

Recently I tried out imagekind, and I have to say the whole experience turned out rather well. They have all sorts of art you can choose from, with many different frames and mats, ‘canvas’ prints, or you can use your own pictures (I chose the story frame format). You’re able to preview different options immediately, which is a little addictive, and they ship it directly to your door. I can definitely say it beat the hell out of running to and from a regular framing shop. I love the internet.

(apologies for my poor compilation above)

Convertible Picture Frame

These are nice and natural modern frames… and, they have an option to be a bud vase or a candle holder depending on which way you turn them over.

“In addition, they’re made of spalted alder…wood from trees that have naturally fallen in the forest; wood that has been left to age there. The result is a unique grain and color pattern. No two pieces are alike.”

Picture Wall

This is a good idea. It’s a kit which includes 10 frames and a map that you hang on the wall to easily know where to put the nails in so you don’t have to do a lot of hammering to get the frames to hang nicely.

To quote their website: “It uses our revolutionary and Patented “Pre-View” Template technology allowing you to determine placement, height and character of frames all without measuring and before the first hook is ever entered into your wall.”

I like how they act like it’s rocket science or something. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great idea, but what they call “Pre-view template technology”, I call an overgrown post-it-note with squares on it. Where I come from, our “technology” consisted of paper towels and scotch tape. I don’t know how their attorneys actually secured a patent for this, but there you have it. In the immortal words of Yakov Smirnoff, “America! What a country!”
