Floating Frames
Floating Frames
Originally made to reveal the wrapped edge of a painting, Floating Frames are mouldings that mount a stretched canvas with a gap between the edge of the frame and the edge of the canvas, giving the appearance that your canvas is “floating” inside the frame. Most often floating frames are very minimalist in style, intended to provide a clean and modern look for canvasses that otherwise would not be framed.  Floating frames are specifically designed for artworks on canvas, works on paper can be mounted with various floating techniques in a traditional frame, but will not work in a floating frame. See some examples here.
