Framing Textiles

Brunschwig & Fils Remnant

 
I especially like framing textiles. I have framed antique silk chinoiserie pieces and a silk scarf - people frame baby clothes, athletic jerseys, flags, Hermès scarves, doilies, coasters, all sorts of things. When framing textiles the piece is lightly sewn to the mat before framing.

I just bought this wonderful embroidered chinoiserie Brunschwig & Fils remnant - the fabric sells for $800 a yard. I had previously found two other pieces of this fabric on Etsy in another colorway and they are framed (a DIY) and hanging in my foyer.

I will have Framebridge do the framing. I have used them on many projects for this home and love working with them so much. You design your frame online - you just upload a photo of your artwork and then you can view their frames online pictured with your art to pick the perfect one. You can even work with a designer for free. They mail you a mailer by UPS, you drop it off to UPS with its prepaid label, you get back your expertly framed piece of art by UPS.

Here are the mockups from Framebridge of the two frames I have narrowed it down to.

Framebridge Mandalay Gold Bamboo Frame

If you would like to try Framebridge,  here is my code to get 15% off your first order. I'm still deciding on the frame. Which one do you like? 

Here is the piece of art I am waiting for them to send back. My Valentine's Day gift to myself. This will go in my pink and red study.

These pictures are all just online mockups to give you the idea of what the finished piece will look like. Framebridge doesn't just frame art and textiles but so many things - jewelry, beach glass, medals, sunglasses, paint brushes, license plates, the world is your oyster.

  1. LUV:) I mentioned in one of your earlier posts on Kim Seybert - that I framed her Blue/White Indochine Cocktail Napkins.

    1. The wicker elephant is vintage and I got in on eBay. There is a fantastic new version that I am wanting to post about, but it has been sold out everywhere and I am waiting for it to restock. Stay tuned.

  4. My vote is for the silver, though both are lovely. I guess it all depends on where it’s going and what it’s neighbors are.❤️
