Atelier Richard Boerth is a picture frame restoration and frame making studio led by Richard Boerth, a third-generation craftsman who has more than 40 years of experience. A resource for museums, art dealers and art collectors nationwide, we are located close to downtown Seattle.
Atelier is a 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.
Our restoration services give new life to antique frames, gilded furniture, and art objects. We also apply gold leaf, silver leaf and other metal leaf to other surfaces and objects.
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 middle of the 20th century. These frames can enhance works of art or be used to create impressive framed mirrors.
Please explore this online studio and gallery, then contact us for an appointment.
