About us

About Thomas Rainsford

Established in 2010 as a specialist bespoke picture framers we have grown to become a leading destination for the highest quality bespoke frames made to order.

Our clients range from private individuals, artists, galleries and interior designers and we are committed to finding the right solution for all framing projects from large collections to one offs.  

Since we first opened our quest has always remained the same - Delivering artwork beautifully presented to enjoy for years to come. Our experienced framers, curators and installations team are here to assist you in finding the right frame and hanging solutions for home interiors, gallery spaces and exhibitions.

Our studio is set within a beautiful mews in Kemp Town where you are able to park outside our shop for free! Other artisan shops are also in our mews such as Red Roaster Coffee, Balcony Tea, Bip Art and Cardigan Knitwear. 

What Makes Us Different?

It has been our consistent attention to detail which has been paramount in safe guarding an ever growing reputation as a leading independent framer in the United Kingdom.

We make our wood frames by hand using specially milled bare wood frame mouldings and apply various finishes from wood stains, custom paints, and textured surfaces in an almost never ending choice of colours and design, we also offer a colour matching service. Our wood frames can be specially milled to order if you require something a little more unique in design or if you need to match another profile of frame and we can work with you on the design and finish.  

We have a selection of quality mouldings available which are pre-finished to the highest standard, these frames are available at a quicker turnaround and most are often available on our same day framing service.

Same day service may cost up to an additional 50% based on complexity and is dependent on stock levels. Oversize frames and mounts are not always available for our same day service. Next-day service costs 20%. Orders must be placed before midday for sameday. Please contact us for details.

We arrange a delivery and picture hanging service ensuring peace of mind that your artwork will be safely delivered and professionally hung by our expert team.

Why not pop down and see what we do for yourselves or even book a private consultation where we can discuss all your framing needs over a cup of tea or coffee. We are always happy to chat framing and like to provide estimates before you commit to placing an order giving you time to consider the options first. We like to think our frames are for life so choosing the right design is important!

Our private appointments are usually booked between 9am-10am and 5pm-6pm Tuesday to Friday and Saturdays between 2pm and 6pm. To enquire further please get in touch at info@thomasrainsford.com or by using our contact page on this website.

We hope to see you soon for your next framing job!
