Salon walls, aka gallery walls, tend to get all the love. They’re dynamic, personal, and allow for different types and sizes of frames and objects to exist on one wall. There are many instances, though, where amazing grids are superior to the more freestyle salon wall. When you’re going for a more balanced, orderly feeling in a room, hanging frames of the same size, shape, and color in a grid arrangement is the way to go. Grid arrangements call less attention to themselves, allowing viewers to focus on the artwork. Here are some recent amazing grids created by New York City’s best professional picture hangers.
These four prints look great in this grid formation above a fireplace. The two recessed rectangular mirrors and the intriguing celadon wall provide a perfect foil for this amazing grid.
Many of ILevel’s clients ask us to install themed grid installations, like this arrangement of twelve Rolling Stones album covers. The clean, consistent lines of this installation allow the viewer to focus on the content in the frames.
These three photographs by ILevel employee Jack Statlander look perfect in this simple grid formation. A few natural elements like a cow skull and porcupine quills on the credenza below the grid complement the subject of the photographs.
These frames contain cyanotypes of lace samples with sewn on lace swatches. This grid highlights an interesting contrast. The white rectangular frames bring a modern vibe, yet the content has a folk art feel.
This four frame grid arrangement creates high impact, bringing these pieces together to look like one large statement piece. Perfect pieces for a perfect grid if I ever saw one!
