A hidden gem close to London Bridge

& the City of London

Set amid the wonderful galleries, shops and restaurants of historic Bermondsey Street, our Georgian building, opposite White Cube, was once part of Christy’s, the largest hat-making factory in the world; today it houses an eclectic mix of contemporary and antique frames, the perfect  environment in which to consult, select from hundreds of framing samples and find the right solution for each project.

Please drop in Monday to Friday 11-5.30 or by appointment evenings and Saturdays. Call 020 7234 0123 to arrange a time, if you wish, as we can get busy at certain times and, should you need to wait a few minutes before your consultation, we are  home to hundreds of antique prints, maps, etchings, woodcuts, lithographs and mezzotints from the 16th century to the present day, we have changing exhibitions, a library of art books and comfy armchairs – we are also happy for you to stop by, discuss your ideas or just browse!

I had three paintings framed at Pure & Applied Framing. I couldn’t have been happier. The attention to detail and surface finish was exceptional. Harriet was very helpful and patient with my requests. Thank you for a great job.
