|Phoenix picture framing|
Framing with both minimalist and creative techniques is key right now with many trends dictated by the manufacturers of furniture more than what's happening in framing. One popular choice in framing has been around for a long time and that is wood frames. A clean, simple and natural look of timber is more chic now than highly polished or varnished preferring them natural in color rather than stained. Although gray is very big in the home design these days and you will see plenty of them stained gray.
The more exotic the wood the better but distressed barn wood will never go out of style. Chrome, stainless steel and silver are in high demand in 2012 as more people shift toward the mod style choices of the 50's and 60's that represent sleek and art deco.
