A well-chosen frame complements a painting, makes the work look finished, and prevents bored portrait subjects from wandering off the canvas to assume your identity. Keep pigments in their place with today's Groupon: for $79, you get $200 worth of custom framing from L'Eclat de Verre. This Groupon cannot be used toward Christmas orders.
L'Eclat de Verre's skilled technicians specialize in putting the finishing touches on precious works of art. Each image-wrangler has completed four years of framing school, mastering 18th century, contemporary, and rare fourth-dimensional techniques. Since no two pieces of art are alike, the method of construction will vary depending on what is being framed. All framing methods are conservation quality and use acid-free materials to ensure long-lasting displayability. For those looking to add a finishing flair to their pieces, more than 800 varieties of textured and handmade papers from all over the world are available as matting choices. As with wholesale pizza parlors, prices vary from piece to piece, with 8"x10" objects ranging from $85–$210 on average, 16"x20" objects ranging from $170–$380 on average, and 24"x36" objects ranging from $310–$625 on average.
L'Eclat de Verre's attention to detail and artistic je ne sais quoi has led to success in its native country, France, prompting the framery to cartwheel across the pond with their inaugural United States store. Enter the studio's elegant showroom to browse through more than 500 L'Eclat-exclusive moldings, with the optional assistance of an expert framer to offer framing advice, pick the perfect frame, or explain the origins of the phrase, "I've been framed!"
