The Framery was a concept created in San Francisco almost 15 years ago by owner/artist, Debra Bongiovanni and framer/manager, Susan Carver. After relocating to Pittsburgh many years ago, they settled-in and began creating their dream. Lawrenceville was the ideal and most obvious location to begin this venture. The renewal of this community with its many shops, galleries and restaurants was the borough they found so inviting.
After four great years and many fantastic new acquaintances, they both agreed that their shared passion for art, framing, and their love of Pittsburgh has helped the dream of The Framery to unfold.. Our Services:
The Framery has over 3000 mouldings to choose from,in a well-lit and very comfortable frameshop setting! We offer a vast and diverse selection of mouldings featuring solid hardwoods,metals,European-imports,sterling silver/gold leaf as well as moulding from local vendors.
The Framery purchases our numerous wood mouldings from vendors nationwide and internationally. However,here at The Framery we understand the importance of supporting local businesses. We make it a priority to strengthen the local economy by purchasing all of our other framing materials such as matboard,foamboard,glass,hardware,and numerous other materials exclusively from a family-owned,Pittsburgh based business. We are part of the community,and we want to show our support for that community wherever we can.
The Framery also works with local custom guilders.
