When in doubt - clean and neutral is always a safe bet. It holds true for clothes, decor, and frames. So, say hello to the little black dress of frames: Mercer and Mercer Slim. Photos, posters, and prints all look great in our most versatile mouldings, Mercer and Mercer Slim. The strong, flat profile of our Mercer frame and the thinner, deeper profile of it's sibling, Mercer Slim, look great with just about everything. What's more? Since they're the ultimate neutral they can mix and match with all types of styles. As your tastes change these guys will stay just as relevant to your collection. Keep reading for a few of our favorite examples of Mercer and Mercer Slim in the wild.

Pro tip: Like the look of a clean gallery frame but not sure if you want to go white or black? If your piece has true black in it you'll want to go with Mercer or Mercer Slim. If your piece has no black in t, go with their white counterparts Irvine and Irvine Slim. Black frames work to pull out darker tones within the art, while white frames work to blend and accent your piece.  


Original Art

Pro tip: Float mount your original art to show off the imperfect edges. It will highlight the completely custom quality of your art. Think about whether you want the frame to pop or blend with the piece. Art on a black background, for example, (like the moon prints above) can look really sharp in Mercer Slim since the boundary between art and frame is subtle.

Pro tip: Most posters should be framed without a mat. If your poster has a white border we recommend showing it only if it has important text or a signature. Otherwise, large pieces are most striking without a mat!


When in doubt, you can't go wrong with Mercer or Mercer Slim.
