new framing studio and ‘arty’ interior design space for business as demand grows
Hemingstone Frames – a fast developing business has moved to a new larger outlet at Stonham Barns Park retail village to bring a range of picture framing services, gallery and interior design pieces direct to customers from the East of England as demand increases for perfection in residential and business interiors.
David Patrick – with over 25 years’ experience in framing – has used his skills to develop a range of framed pictures and creative furnishings to adorn any setting or space. He grew the business by supplying frames for top pieces of art at galleries throughout London and the UK and has most recently been supplying ‘arty’ furniture and furnishings for people who are decorating or refurbishing or upgrading properties though out the region. Says David from Hemingstone, near Ipswich, ‘The business has simply grown organically. My customers – who appreciate beautifully framed art – are usually working on entire rooms when they come to buy pictures and mirrors.’
‘I have been asked to supply other items of decor to go alongside pieces of art and so my interest in contemporary furniture and interior accessories has developed over recent years. I now stock anything that can bring colour, life and vibrancy to a home or business interior.’
The new outlet is almost four times the size of his original shop at Stonham Barns Park. He moved the business during August after trialing his new and diversified product range at Aspal Emporium, an antiques showroom and exhibition space, used by a number of different traders from the region.
With highlight pieces including a set of almost life-sized pelican prints, a fully stocked picture gallery featuring contemporary, classic and bold themes, ornate mirrors, sofas, chairs, cushions, antique pieces, naval ship’s lighting and a bright red aviation ejector seat, the new premises has something for anyone involved in a home or business makeover.
‘The business has been nicely on target in recent years – even with pandemic. Since the end of the lockdown, I have seen a steep rise in interest in picture and mirror framing and furniture and accessories. It’s as though everyone has remodeled their lives. Big feature pieces are much in demand as are ‘pops’ of colour in every shape and size. Anything to brighten up our homes and gardens.’
‘It’s all great for business and I’m delighted to be able to show off this new outlet. I have had nothing but positive comments from people from as far away as Scotland and Australia.’
‘I am proud of what I have achieved.’
Hemingstone Frames can transform new and old pictures and prints into ‘works of art’ using frames, mouldings, mounts and glass to make beautiful, framed pieces.
