This high-gloss black-lacquer wood picture frame represents the glamorous Hollywood Regency era of modern living, as interpreted by designer Jonathan Adler for Larson Juhl Moulding. The profile width is 7/8”, and the rabbet depth is a substantial 1”, making this classy black frame ideally suited for both matted works on paper such as fine art photography, and also paintings or giclee prints on stretched canvas.
Imagery that pairs with the classy and sophisticated look of this regency-style black lacquer wood picture frame may include enlarged black & white photos of cocktail party events of your favorite celebrity, or movie posters, along with home decor prints and posters of famous contemporary painters such as Jack Vettriano.
For cat lovers, consider framing an artful picture of your black & white tuxedo cat in this high-gloss black lacquer picture frame. If you own a 50s diner, consider decorating with Marilyn Monroe posters in this glamorous regency frame, or illustrations of a Chevy Bel Air for your garage or man cave.
Of course, non-Western art considerations may be equally fitting in this black lacquer wood picture frame. Sumi ink wash paintings on rice paper work phenomenally well in this frame due to the historic use of traditional lacquer and shellac throughout Chinese history. Paintings of horses, dragons, and trees in a landscape composition are all excellent pairings.
