I have a 30x30 0il painting of a harbor with some boats tied up. It is very colorful, purples, blues, bright strokes of red and orange, to be hung in a contemporary environment. Over the mantel room has dove gray walls, leather sofas, big screen tv. Owner wants a contemporary look with the frame and my supplier doesn''t have anything I would consider contemporary. I''m thinking a floater frame, but don''t see much with any facial width and this painting is fairly large. Any suggestions for a contemporary look?
You can always use a smaller floater frame (with the width of the edge 3/16-1/4" and then add another frame around it to cover the edge. This allows more options than a one-piece floater and can go contemporary or traditional depending on the surrounding frame. The only real limitation is finding a surrounding frame that is deep enough to hide the floater frame the side.
