Bespoke Picture Framing
WATERGATE FRAMING is the professional picture framing service at the Watergate Street Gallery . Using only the finest quality materials and the latest precision equipment, we create bespoke frames for maximum impact.
We believe that bespoke picture framing should be both functional and beautiful. It is with this in mind that we offer a constantly shifting and relevant selection of mouldings, mount boards and framing solutions to a high level conservation standard. For our framers, quality is everything. It is for this reason that we use a variety of ethically sourced, hand embellished, PEFC approved, PH-neutral and chemical free materials. By using materials such as these you can be confident that Watergate Framing will offer you an elegant, beautiful solution for your artwork, whilst simultaneously guaranteeing that it will be preserved in the condition you leave it with us, for years to come.
Whilst interior design trends are ever shifting, there will always be traditional, timeless classics that will always remain in demand. Aware of this fact, our design team treat each client as an individual, receptive to their requirements and situation – be it a highly modern studio flat or conference space, or a traditional country house we will find an apt framing situation that works for you. We work with several of the market-leading material suppliers for the framing industry to be able to pass on this selection to our customers.
We offer case framing, box framing, wood, metallic, veneered, varnished, distressed and aluminium designer frames, ornate, swept, and gold leaf frames. We also offer specialist services, such as non-reflective ‘invisible’ glass, UV-filter glass, case framing and float-mounting that give your work an extra special finish – please call in to see the possibilities.
As we are offering a bespoke picture frame service, we have to approach each job as an isolated challenge. Therefore, here at Watergate Framing we offer a free, no obligation, design consultation where we take you through the best solutions and frame choices for your particular requirements. We are open 7 days a week and you can 'drop in' Sunday to Friday. The gallery is very busy on Saturdays so we are often unable to dedicate the consultation time we would like to, and ask that you please book between 12.30 and 2.30pm if it is your only convenient day. There is no availability outside of those times.
As we have a design consultation with every customer we serve, we have a great deal of prior experience and knowledge that we can pass on to you. We have worked with designers, artists, retailers, hotels, and the general public repeatedly. To help you in your inspiration and ideas, please see our range of case studies.
