An Ornate Picture Frame also allows you a choice of finishes, such as lavish gold or silver leaf or classic bronze, and frame choices like Palazzo, Renoir, Marquis and Cordoba. Whatever you envision for your wall, we can craft the perfect picture frame to meet your needs.

We can offer such an individualised service because we hand craft all our made to measure picture frames at our own workshops in Manchester and Lancashire.

This company's products and customer service was excellent. I had a bespoke frame made for a large vintage print and it fitted perfectly. The printing of the title on the mount was an added bonus!

Absolutely superb service and advice, from my first contact with Roger he was helpful, polite and a great understanding of my thoughts and needs. As a freelance illustrator I always use independents to supply / work with. Picture Frames Direct are excellent.

Fantastic service and quality! Ordered a bespoke oak frame. Not only it fits the picture perfectly, the frame smells of wood that I love.



Ornate Picture Frame FAQs

An ‘ornate’ picture frame is elaborately decorated with bold, complicated patterns.

In modern interior design, ornate picture frames are being used to create a vintage look that connects us with the past but remains classy and sophisticated.

A vintage interior can take inspiration from any historical period, even combining elements from different periods, to create something reassuringly familiar.

A carefully selected ornate picture frame can be used in combination with other furniture, furnishings and lamps to complete the authentic luxury style without the need for any expensive antiques.
