Size, depth, proportion, relation to ceilings, floors, and furniture – finding a picture frame with the right measurements is tough enough, and the decision gets even more difficult when it comes time to choose a design that you actually LIKE.
But what if we told you there was a fun way to shop for modern picture frames? You know where we are going with this… We browse Etsy for daily inspiration and the housewares section is out of this world. The selection of picture frames is always exciting and ever-changing, all lovingly created with the timeless handmade appeal that makes each object a true treasure.
We love that anybody has a chance to contribute. Where else but Etsy could you find the modern look of mosaic glass next to the antique brass and old lace of steampunk designs? Upcycled, recycled, made from scratch – it’s all there.
The artists at Etsy are a diverse group of people who continue to blow us away with fresh picture frames added daily.
One of a kind picture frames? Check. Growing and diverse selection? Check check! Some of the artists even offer custom designs and large matching lots. Etsy takes the pain out of framing.
On a side note, if you collect large posters or need affordable options for getting those wall posters up where they can be celebrated – I’d recommend poster frames depot for manufacturer discount pricing. Etsy is great for smaller cozy frames in all kinds of styles… but not always great for simple large frames for really large prints. Going with a shop like PosterFrameDepot might be ideal.
Etsy has a great interface to top it all off. The designers really know how to present their wares – it is standard practice to upload several photos, giving you a great idea of what you’re looking at which we personally appreciate to the max. We love the option to sort the results by location giving patrons a chance to support local craft artists.
We like to think of Etsy as an inspiration repository. Think about all of those potential DIY projects out there! Plus, this site hosts a great deal of vintage and handmade materials – lots of little goodies you can use to make your own modern picture frames.
Are you on the hunt for the perfect frame, or just some neat ideas? We’d love to hear about the cool things you find on your search.
