This contemporary black wood picture frame features a small step on both sides of the profile, with thin red highlights that complement imagery that features red and black designs and motifs, especially Chinese art such as calligraphy, dragons, and branches or landscapes.
The black finish of this contemporary black picture frame is applied to a red gesso base, and the profile width is 1 ¼”. The rabbet depth is 5/8”, so matted artwork, prints, posters, photographs, and some canvases can be framed in this profile depending on the depth of stretcher bars.
The feel of this black picture frame offers a subtle distinction from the typical look of a black picture frame due to the red lines that are highlighted along the edges of each step on the profile. It’s this kind of distinction that adds variety and selection when deciding which black frame is best for your piece.
Matboard colors to consider with this contemporary black picture frame include options from our acid free archival selection such as Etched Black 5598, Valentine 9576, Steel Drum 9555, and Plum 9840.
