Whether you're an artist, a collector, or simply looking for a unique way to display your favourite photos, there are many exciting framing trends to look forward to in 2023.

In this post, we'll take a look at some of the top trends in picture framing for the year ahead.


  1. Sustainability and Eco-Friendly Materials

As consumers become more environmentally conscious, the demand for sustainable and eco-friendly picture-framing materials is on the rise. Expect to see an increase in the use of recycled or reclaimed wood, non-toxic finishes, and low VOC adhesives. Sustainable framing options not only benefit the environment, but they can also add an interesting element to your art collection.

  1. Bold and Bright Colors

2023 is the year for bold and bright colour schemes in picture framing. From neon hues to primary colors, expect to see a lot of pops of color in framing designs. This trend is perfect for adding a touch of playfulness and energy to your artwork or photos.


  1. Mixed-Media Framing

Mixing materials like wood, metal, and acrylic is a great way to add depth and dimension to your artwork. Mixing materials also allows for more unique and creative designs, so expect to see a rise in mixed-media framing in 2023.

  1. Minimalist Designs

Less is more in 2023 when it comes to picture framing. Minimalist designs are a popular trend that can help to highlight the beauty of the artwork itself, rather than the framing. Expect to see frames with clean lines, sleek finishes, and simple designs.


  1. Digital Frames

Digital frames have been around for a while, but 2023 will see even more innovation in this area. Expect to see frames with higher resolution screens, more storage, and improved functionality. Digital frames offer an interesting way to display your favorite photos or even showcase a collection of digital artwork.

  1. Unconventional Shapes

Say goodbye to traditional rectangular frames in 2023! Unconventional shapes like hexagons, circles, and even asymmetrical frames are becoming increasingly popular. These shapes can add an interesting and unique element to any artwork.


In conclusion, 2023 is set to be a year of innovation and creativity in the world of picture framing. From sustainable materials to bold colors and mixed-media designs, there are plenty of exciting framing trends to look forward to. Which trend will you try in 2023?
