SkyFrame

Posted by

One of the most essential elements of home design is wall art. Whether that means your kids' art, art auctioned off at Sotheby’s, or treasured personal photographs, all decorative pieces need a good frame. One of our go-to framers at Martha Stewart Living is SkyFrame. They’re a great resource, which we’ve used multiple times for Living shoots, because they have a expansive selection of frames.

Recently I went to SkyFrame to get my September 2010 Living cover with Martha framed for my office. I took along my camera to show you their Midtown Manhattan offices and the process they go through to make the perfect frame.
