Why us

What makes us different

For forty years, the Patrick Ireland team has been striking the perfect balance between innovation and experience; between creativity and precision. Hand-finishing all of our pieces in our East Sussex workshop gives us the scope and flexibility to create some of the most exquisite frames and mirrors on the market. It’s no surprise, then, that the UK’s leading interior designers and hotel groups call on our highly skilled frame-makers, gilders and finishers to create striking, seamless frames to bring their spaces to life.

Made and Finished by hand
Beautiful hand-crafted frames and finishes

In contrast to many framers, we design, make and finish all our frames in-house at our workshop. Each frame starts life as a plain timber moulding, before being built to the desired size and prepared for its bespoke finish. We prime most finishes with gesso to create a smooth base, giving our frames a seamless, uninterrupted finish, even at the mitred corners.

Because we finish our frames by hand, we offer an impressive number of finishes, including classic waxed timber, high-gloss lacquer, metal leaf and gilded options.

There’s a reason leading designers, art curators, artists and galleries choose Patrick Ireland Frames.

Framing Consultations
Visit our showroom or let us come to see you

We appreciate it can be hard knowing where to begin when framing a piece of artwork, so we are here to offer expert guidance on any framing project our clients need help with. For ideas, inspiration and advice, book an appointment to visit our showroom, where we have hundreds of frame profiles and finishes on display, or contact us to arrange on-site visits within London and the Southeast.

Sample Finishes and Colours
Give your finishes the seal of approval

Our standard sample board features our most popular finishes, but for bespoke finishes, we will produce a sample for you before we go into production. This means you can rest assured the colour and style is the perfect fit for your space, or that it matches a given fabric swatch, for example. We also work with RAL colours and paint colours from manufacturers such as Farrow & Ball, Little Greene, and Paint & Paper Library.
