The employees at Unique Furnishings Boston shepherd patrons through 10,000 square feet of antique, new, and preowned furniture and appliances encapsulating the evolving tastes from the 1950s to today. Staffers habitually refresh their inventory—which ranges from traditional, American-made furnishings to eclectic masterpieces—with new additions, such as a vintage armoire with an artfully framed mirror. Unique Furnishings Boston embraces a philosophy of sustainability by buying or trading quality used items before owners relocate or completely refurbish apartments due to a newly prescribed diet of entirely edible furniture.
When Artur Andronic took his first picture with a friend's camera, he fell in love with photography. His next step was to save up for a Rebel XS, which helped him hone his skills before he graduated to a Canon 7D. Though Artur studied business administration for five years and earned an MBA in international business, photography is his passion; it cultivates his creative side and enables him to share the beauty he sees with others.
Whenever Artur snaps a portrait, he strives to capture candid expressions illuminated by natural light. He also photographs wild animals as they frolic through nature and maintains both clarity and detail by using a fast shutter speed, heavy saturation, and taxidermy. In addition to clicking pics for clients, he takes avant-garde photos and documents his travels to exotic locations.
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.
