Framed Art has all the artist's within your fingertips when ordering in their website. Search any kind of artist with their work and they will frame it and customize it for you according to your liking. You can shop by room, style, artist, subject, color or venue. For us, we tend to gravitate towards Claude Monet and Van Gogh and other impressionistic artists. It really is an easy task to work with them with their website's layout, easy options, friendly customer service, interactive customization and reasonable prices.
Packaging-wise, our painting arrived in a big rectangular sturdy box. It was directly handed to us by the mailman and it was as always priority mail with fragile labels so there is no fear of damaging or package loss. As I have mentioned before, they have excellent customer service as they assure any convenience to you if ever something like that happens. The zip ties hold the painting together tightly and bubble wrap covers the entirety of the painting.
The painting comes with the ready to use and easy to install brackets and nails. The instructions attached are simple enough to follow whether you would like to use your own hinges and tools. You can choose to either have a frame or unframed canvas art. They have over 40 to choose from as well as mat or glassed finishing. For the framing, I opted for a lightweight slim solid platinum which measures 1 inch wide. You also have the option to retain or remove the border mat - I always choose to remove it for I like the seeing the whole painting in a wholesome sense. The painting also comes with a clear plexiglass or if you want, you can call for a non-glare glass finish. It is easier to clean and protects it longer. Very good investment for your art.
We chose Vincent Van Gogh's Blossoming Almond Tree, Saint Remy c. 1890 for this year. It was impressive to see up close Van Gogh's work with his flower subject. You can really see the brush strokes blending beautifully with other colors. The blue background looked like he brushed it on. I'm not an expert but I have heard that he mostly smear paint with his hands. FramedArt captured the authenticity of the real painting so it was like having the real deal in your own home. It is indeed a nice addition to our living room which serves as our brightest corner in our house.
I will be posting more pictures as we progress and continue with our decorating. Check out FramedAt.com and make sure to tell me which one is your favorite! Below is a video of their custom framing process.
