Our Process

What We Do

All our frames are handmade and hand-finished. We sell finished-corner frames only … no length or chop. This allows for a beautiful, continuous pattern across the corner. We also offer decorative boxes, switchplates, tabletops, and drawer pulls.


Our finishes include: hand-painted faux animal skins, off-beat gilding, unusual compo patterns, textured gesso finishes, antiqued map finishes, exquisite traditional and architectural hardwoods, and on and on and on.

How to Get Started

Order our full-color catalog or corner samples

There is a $25 charge for our catalog, which will be rebated on your first frame order. Most of our corner samples cost $15 each. Gilded and Compaux samples run between $30 and $45.

Things You Should Know

  • We sell only closed-corner frames … no length or chop.
  • Prices range from $10 - $50 per foot wholesale.
  • With a few exceptions, any finish can be used on any profile.
  • Allow 4 – 6 weeks for delivery.
  • Because each frame is hand-made, finishes WILL vary. If you are an "exact match" kind of person, Animaux is not for you. Like snowflakes and fingerprints, no two Animaux creations are exactly alike. Though we make every human effort to keep colors and patterns consistent, the variances of these handmade treasures are both their charm and their difficulty. EXPECT variances. The more "troublesome" finishes will require that corner samples be returned for frame orders.
