Metal Frames Have Arrived

It’s time to make some room on your walls—and on your holiday wish list—because our 3 new metal frame collections are here to brighten the gifting season.

Slim, sleek and super versatile, our metal frames are our most subtle styles to date, adding just a thin metallic accent to your piece that lets artwork shine. Durable metal allows for a profile that is uber-narrow (as small as ¼”). It pairs just as well with pint-sized photos as with concert posters—metal sizing goes up to 24x30”—or any other items that beg to be in the spotlight. Whether you go big or tiny, the range of subdued metallic hues—from cool Graphite to elegant Rose Gold—keeps the viewer’s eye where it should be: on your art.

Bonus points: The frames' industrial quality goes beyond their aesthetic. All of our metal frames can be easily taken apart and reassembled whenever you have the urge to refresh your walls.

Without further ado, meet the 3 new metal collections we simply can’t get enough of.

Old School

Subtly nostalgic with just the right amount of shine, Old School Metal Frames feature gently rounded corners and provide the slightest border on the edge of your artwork—just enough to make it go pop. We love Old School Metal for concert posters, fine-art photographs and small-scale works. Choose from a spectrum of shades like Bright White, Matte Black, Bright Silver, Bright Gold and Matte Rose Gold. Yes, we said Rose Gold.

New School

Our New School Metal Frames show that even the tiniest details can make a mega impact. Artwork is slightly recessed inside the frame while straightforward square corners mirror the clean lines of contemporary architecture. In fact, we think this frame is the perfect choice for architectural blueprints, pen-and ink-drawings, and screen prints. Modern hues of Matte Black, Warm Silver and Silver Blackout are pretty takes on go-to neutrals.

Metal Gallery

Thinner and lighter than our best-selling wooden Gallery Frames, Metal Gallery Frames are modern, sleek alternatives ready to fit into any room. We love Metal Gallery for fine-art photographs, posters and original works on paper. Choose from Bright White, Bright Silver, Graphite, Matte Gold and Matte Black. Like all of our frames, they ship ready to hang with our trademark plexi.
