The floater frame concept is a post-modern invention that stems from abstract expressionism and color field painting of the late 50s and early 60s. Artists would produce giant canvases that made framing cost-prohibitive and aesthetically unnecessary. Instead, artists would tack thin strips of wood around their canvases to protect the work during transport. This became the aesthetic of the era. Floater frames, with a gap between the art and the frame, are an extension of that minimalist aesthetic. Today, the variety and styles of floater frames have become vast.
Art materials that may be used in conjunction with a floater frame such as this dark espresso brown wood picture frame may include rigid hardboard panel paintings, prints and posters that are mounted and laminated onto gatorboard, foamcore, or other rigid materials, canvas boards, signage, and of course, canvas that is stretched around stretcher bars.
Additional uses for this dark espresso wood floater frame include DIY projects for creative and handy people. For example, this floater frame could be used to build beautiful trays for casual dining and home decor purposes, along with menu boards for cafes, coffee shops, and other service businesses.
