This dark metallic wood picture frame offers the look of forged steel with a chunky square profile shape. The finish is a nuanced dark olive gray tone, with pock marks that simulate a steel surface. The profile width is 1 9/16”, and the rabbet depth is a whopping 1 3/8”, making this frame ideal for art materials up to 1 ½” deep.
Stretched canvases are certainly a possibility with this dark metallic wood picture frame, but thinner materials are also a potential match, such as beveled mirrors in an industrial or machine age design setting, or graphite and charcoal drawings in a modernist room.
Additional possibilities include floating art with the use of either shadowbox walls or mat combinations with built up layers of foamcore for depth between mats. This dark metallic wood picture frame could also be used in a series to tie a room together around a specific subject matter.
Imagery that would fit the look of this dark metallic wood picture frame includes fish & wildlife nature scenes such as river and fish species illustrations, along with medieval images and renderings that correspond to a dark olive color scheme. For that matter, prints and posters featuring the works of John Waterhouse, such as Lady of Shalott, might be suitable matches for this frame.
