FrameStore's craftsmen have created more than 250,000 custom frames in the store’s 35-year tenure, designing pieces that now adorn the walls of prestigious institutions such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Walt Disney Company. Professional designers guide FrameStore’s clients through the 2,200 moulding options that can accent paintings and treasured items while adding style and elegance to rooms. The store’s craftsmen then fashion pieces to patron specifications, outfitting frames with classic or museum-quality glass that blocks UV rays from bleaching out images or censoring pictures of the moon. Every piece goes through a 16-point inspection before it is given to patrons, and the team averages a seven-day turnaround on all of its projects.

A cerulean neon sign casts an otherworldly glow across the shop, where the seer reads tarot cards beneath complex chandeliers to divine the future of her clients over the phone or in person.

So when she crafts her candles, she always does so with the aromas' therapeutic effects in mind. And during her spiritual life-coaching sessions, she combines scent with astrology, tarot readings, and energy healing to move clients toward achieving their goals.
