Spotlight On: The Canvas Float Frame
Posted by Brandi Kulakowski on Feb 23, 2016
The canvas floater frame is ideal for giving new life to an old oil, showing off a master's signature or letting the work stand on its own. Here's an up-close look at the gap it provides to create the illusion that a work is floating, shown in our luxe silver canvas float frame. (BTW, we can't get enough of this one. It's hand-finished in France and has an exquisite gilded silver face and white-washed sides). This type of frame pairs well with classic paintings and contemporary designs alike.
Our canvas float frames have a narrow profile to really make the artwork pop. We stretch your canvas around wooden stretcher bars and attach it to the inside of the frame. Then we create ¼” of space between the edge of your canvas and the inside of the frame so that it exposes the whole canvas.
Building canvas floater frames wholesale is one of our specialties, and working with us to create a wholesale custom framing account is super easy. If you are looking to be a new partner, the simple process starts with contacting us on our Partner page (scroll down to the "Talk to Us" area at the bottom of the page) and telling us about your wholesale custom framing needs. If you are an existing partner, simply log in and place an order on our vendor portal or contact us to learn more about float frames. Once we receive your art, we build a custom frame for the work (or works if it is a large order), and then ship it off to you (or your customers) in sturdy, protective packaging.

The minimal design of the canvas float frame is incredibly elegant and holds its own in a gallery wall. Case in point is Zoe Bios Creative’s Francis 5 painting in the black canvas float frame (we love how it transformed this wall. p.s. To learn more about this project, check out the before and after we did with Lonny!).
We partner with the best in the business, artists with upcoming exhibitions and designers crafting magnificent gallery walls, providing wholesale custom framing options to meet everyone's needs. As a go-to resource for canvas floater frames and all your other custom framing needs, we create frames that transform how works fit within their environs, in cozy living rooms and minimalist white cubes alike.
