Steve Burke, vice president of global sales at Larson-Juhl, discusses the growth of design-led framing in Dubai:

“As art and framing continues to be highly innovative within the hospitality sectors of Dubai and the UAE as a whole, interior designers are prioritising quality and a visually-led approach when choosing their materials. This means that, as designers are beginning to realise the importance of art and framing within their projects, art is appearing back on the walls and becoming increasingly valued within the creative community.

“Appearing at eye level as you walk into a room, art and framing are often the first thing you will see as you enter a space, so it’s important to make an impact. Although framed images do not occupy the whole room, it is undeniable that art and photography enhance the feel of the room, meaning that they should be the main focus in any interior design project.

“Whilst sourcing artwork for a space, designers should always take into consideration the type of framing that would best compliment the art chosen. Afterall, the frame can make or break the art.

“Larson-Juhl has been leading the way in frame design for 40 years, with manufacturing facilities in the US, Europe, Australia and China. The quality of our products is world-renowned, and we offer an overwhelming choice of design-led ranges such as Anvil, Komodo and Angus. “

The Italian-inspired Angus range uses raw materials from traditional Tuscany, offering a sleek and sophisticated leather finish.

Anvil has a modern edge and works fantastically with loft conversions, or with popular industrial-style interiors, contributing to the rustic, stylish theme.

The Komodo range features a textual high gloss lacquer finish with hand rubbed edges as a contemporary take on authentic Asian style, and is available in red, black, cream and green.
