Antiquing Road Trip!!

Many times a day we're asked, "Where do you get your stuff"? Seriously! It is the A #1 question. I usually just reply, "If I told ya, I'd have to kill you". Well no more! This is how we get our "stuff". We go on road trips and pick out the best of the best from all over America and bring it back to you folks who are confined to the Chicago area and are too lazy to get it yourselves. : )

Our Favorite Frames

As many of you know, Foursided has a deep appreciation for beautifully hand crafted frames from yesteryear. In this post we bring you an impeccable hand crafted picture frame design made in the present. These frames could be characterized as "mission", "arts and crafts", "prairie", or "adirondeck". The name "mission" was inspired by Joseph McHugh, a New York furniture maker and retailer, to describe his straight line rustic style furniture. His design was based on a chair that had been made for a church in San Francisco around 1894. The designs were influenced by the Spanish missions of the area, thus the term "mission style". "Arts and Crafts" was the European design name for a similar style. Other "similar" regional styles include "Prairie" from the Midwest and "Adirondeck" from Upstate New York.
 
We hope you enjoy these frames as much as we do.
