Behind Our Name is the online service of Best Frame Shops in Southern California.

We feature fine traditional custom framing designed and crafted by Professionals with a combined 100 years of working with Picasso, Rembrandt, Renoir, Chagall, Warhol, Lichtenstein, Miro and many other well listed artists.  Our experience and know how  after years of working with galleries, artists and major collectors guides us in both providing proper protection and showcasing fine art in the most economical applications.
We use real wood mouldings  featuring designs from the finest Italian and American and other manufactures using oak, cherry, maple, walnut, pine, reclaimed wood and a variety of other woods.

Works are crafted with traditional techniques and with a variety of special finishes including gold and silver washes, real metal leaf with many fine hand polished finishes in black, white, along with driftwood and reclaimed wods from souces such as old barns and fences.

Most of the mouldings we offer are true premium mouldings, acquired as the result of excess production, discontinued styles, mouldings to pricey for the market and seconds which may have minor imperfections (noted when applies).

Styles that are most in demand including traditional baroque and renaissance gold and silver designs, plein aire gold and silver, classic mahogany and cheery  and other natural finishes. And of course basic multi coat blacks with satin and glossy finishes.  Special designer frames in a variety of styles and finishes are available as well.

Conservation matting and uv-3 protection glazing are standard.
