Introducing "New" Design Aglow Frames

Introducing "New" Design Aglow Frames

Starting February 1st, 2017, say goodbye to Bella, Metro, and Woodworks, and say hello to Hawthorne, Sellwood, and Laurelhurst!

Wait, don’t panic! The frames aren’t going anywhere. We’ve just renamed our frame line to better reflect the personalities of each individual frame and share the love of our home, Portland, Oregon.

So without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to our “new” frames.

DESIGN AGLOW HAWTHORNE FRAME

A little eclectic and a little quirky, Hawthorneformerly Bella, was inspired by the popular shopping district in Southeast Portland. The Hawthorne frame still features unique square beading on a simple frame with an antique finish. While it’s not quite as hippy as the Hawthorne neighborhood, this frame is perfect for spaces that need a little bit of something original and unexpected.

Why we love Hawthorne (the frame): Glamorous but still fits into our signature Modern Minimalist style.

Why we love Hawthorne (the neighborhood): Fantastic shopping, great coffee, and even better food.

DESIGN AGLOW SELLWOOD FRAME

The Sellwood frame, formerly Metro, was inspired by the historic Sellwood neighborhood, just a stone’s throw away from the Design Aglow headquarters. This seamless frame will stand the test of time (much like the beloved neighborhood which has been around since the 1800s). Sellwood is laser cut from one panel of MDF without mitered corner joints creating a clean, unelaborated frame--a modern classic.

Why we love Sellwood (the frame): Minimal framing at its best.

Why we love Sellwood (the neighborhood): “Everything goes, everyone’s welcome” vibe, yard goats and chickens.

DESIGN AGLOW LAURELHURST FRAME

Laurelhurst, formerly Woodworks, is brought to life by its charm and warmth. Featuring a natural wood frame with a simple but edgy sharp-beveled profile, this frame perfectly emulates the vintage residential neighborhood in Portland. The poplar wood moulding of Laurelhurst is given a natural, unvarnished look with a gloss-less stain in barn grey and espresso.

Why we love Laurelhurst (the frame): Perfectly compliments any photo, warm and organic

Why we love Laurelhurst (the neighborhood): the lovely Laurelhurst Park and beautiful tree-lined streets for strolling

We hope you love the new frame names as much as we do! We've got a few more changes happening to our Frame Shop, so head on over to this blog post explaining it all.

Let's face it, we've all gotten that email that asks us if we offer holiday/off-season/Sunday/dog's birthday discounts. As a girl who loves shopping clearance racks, I get it, I love me a good sale... but always being asked to discount your prices can be disheartening and devaluing as a creative. We already struggle with putting a price on our art, how the heck are we going to make any money if we don't charge profitable prices.

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!
