Atelier Richard Boerth
Atelier Richard Boerth is a bespoke picture frame making and fine antique frame gallery led by third generation craftsman Richard Boerth who has over 40 years experience.
A resource for art collectors, museums, galleries and interior designers, we are located close to downtown Seattle.
Atelier is the French word for studio or workshop and we honor that heritage. Specializing in gold leaf and other decorative finishes, we use mostly traditional materials and techniques.
Any frame style or finish can be newly replicated in meticulous detail whether historic or contemporary, unadorned or highly detailed. Unique frame designs are also routinely handcrafted from start to finish.
In addition to our workshop, we have a gallery with a large selection of fine antique frames available for purchase. They include many styles dating from the 17th century to the mid 20th C. These frames can enhance works of art or be used to create impressive framed mirrors.
Our restoration services give new life to antique frames, gilded furniture and art objects.
We also apply gold leaf, silver leaf and and other types of metal leaf to furniture, art objects and for architectural gilding projects.
