Here's What Our Customers Say.

I used Modern Painting & Framing for several projects this year. Each time they have provided excellent aesthetic advice and great service at a fair price.

Andrew Ross

The owners pride themselves by being extremely detail orientated. Their prices are very reasonable. Philippe helped me hung the new order that I gave him and the ideas that he came with to add a flare to the house was absolutely amazing. I love his creativity. Philippe delivered the order to my place as well. This was something very special of them.

Suki Abeysekera

This is the epitome of the place you want to go for your framing needs. It is a family run business, father and son. They legitimately care about their work, know their stuff and are completely competent in their abilities. They are community aware, love whom they deal with and look for the best pricing for their clients, while matching the end result required. This is the only place I will go to for frames going forward.
