The House of Heydenryk | Consultation
Beloved by generations of clients, the House of Heydenryk elevates the process of framing to an art form.
The Franklin Report

Our expert showroom staff will work closely with you in choosing the best possible frame or setting for your artwork. Each consultant is an artist in his own right and is available to advise you on conservation, the historical accuracy, aesthetics or design of the frame and its relationship to your work of art.

The House of Heydenryk uses full frame samples rather than corner pieces, which enables the client to see how the moulding will look around the entire image. Frame appraisals and Photoshop mockups via email are also available.
