What's New at Flax: The "Quarry" Collection From Bella Moulding of Italy
Recently, we received a collection of corner samples from our friends at Bella Moulding. All Bella mouldings are made over in Italy, which has always had the reputation for being first class quality and very innovative designs. Of course, the pricing reflects those attributes. Still, the rough-hewn stone finish done in matte lacquers over metallic base coats gives each corner an almost irridescent quality. The front face is lightly crowned, even with the embossed topogaphy. The outside, vertical face of each moulding, and the inside front lip, has a gold leaf finish that has been lightly distressed to show some of the color of the gesso undercoat. The mouldings are 1 1/2" wide and have a 1 1/8" tall rabbet (the area under the lip of the frame). Outside, they are 1 1/2" tall overall. Lacquered finishes are Turquoise Dome, Lilac Amethyst, White Moonstone, Red Garnet, Green Jasper, Lapis Lazuli, Rose Quartz and Tiger's Eye.
If you think you have something to frame that would be ideally suited for this collection, stop in for a no-obligation design consultation. We can have a lot of fun designing something amazing with these mouldings!
