Experienced framers Barry Stahl and Bob Clayton built Big Picture Framing from scratch in 2000, holding meetings around an old card table as construction roared around them. Today, framers at 15 area locations craft custom frames to display artwork, photographs, and record sleeves, and shadow boxes protect three-dimensional items such as ballet slippers, macaroni art, or a swarm of wasps. Patrons can dictate all design choices, choosing from metal and wooden frames in a multitude of colors and styles, or ask for recommendations from one of Big Picture Framing's resident experts. Big Picture Framing also stocks pre-framed art, prints, and posters to spruce up bare-walled homes or a drab doghouse.

Renaissance Framing Gallery revivifies worn art and frames using careful, artisanal restoration techniques.

A web-based rug purveyor with an outlet store in Pawtucket, RI, CMI has garnered several design awards for its high-quality braided floor coverings, all crafted in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Hundreds of styles, colors, and sizes rush to meet the eyes of carpet-seekers, ranging from the lapis-blue 24" x 36" Elegance ($100), which lives up to its name with alternating braid styles of downy chenille, to the playful tea-party-pink 24" x 36" Blokburst oval ($75), with touches of colored fabric amid plaited tresses. Each of the 24" x 36" reversible Pawtucket rugs ($50) presents a one-of-a-kind work of art assembled from excess yarns and braids, capable of simultaneously appeasing eyes, bare feet, and plaintive floorboards. Outdoor spaces can take cover with a 48" x 48" Renaissance ($375), a reversible, stain-resistant square rug crafted entirely from Sunbrella acrylic fibers.
