If you've ever framed something with us there's a good chance you've gone with our Irvine or Irvine Slim frames. The cleanest of our clean styles, Irvine, and it's slightly slimmer and deeper sister, Irvine Slim, look great with anything you’re excited to get up on the wall. From original art, to bright art prints, family photos, and posters, these sleek gallery frames are bona fide style chameleons. They easily mix and match with other pieces you may have in your collection, but also strong enough to hang solo.

Picking the perfect frame for that piece you love? Here's when to go Irvine.


Original Art

Pro tip: If your art is signed on the front be sure to show that signature off! Simply note your request in the special instructions field when you order. Consider float mounting your piece for that little extra somethin' else.

Pro tip: Not sure when to pick Irvine or Irvine Slim and when to go with their black counterparts, Mercer and Mercer Slim? If your piece has black in it, go Mercer. If it doesn't, keep it bright with Irvine.

Pro tip: With this frame style, more is... more. A whole bunch of Irvine and Irvine Slim frames together is a striking look. Frame a large set of photos in the same style to create a cohesive gallery-style or grid look.

Pro tip: If your art is large or extra large, we recommend going without a mat. If your piece is small, extra small or medium, we typically suggest a mat. With those smaller pieces a mat will add airiness and impact, bringing your eye right to the art.


Remember: when in doubt, a white frame with a white mat is always a good look.
