Which do you prefer - Canvas Art of Framed Art

jeankrisNovember 7, 2012
I'm in the mist of selecting some large pieces of art and not sure which way to go, so I thought I would come here and ask :)

I think it totally depends on the space, style and design. I personally think if I love a piece of art...it looks good almost anywhere. : ) I actually use both styles, but when I want additional light, I have canvas art because the framed art creates a glare with a light shining on the glass. However, maybe I'm confused, you can frame a canvas too!

I have never owned canvas art so I have been thinking about changing it up, but I do love framed art. I have a mixed style of glam and french country.

Either no frame at all, or mat with frame. And what a handsome subject!

It's a matter of preference and design style preferred. Framed art lends itself to a more traditional or transitional design. Non framed or wrapped canvas is simpler and more contemporary. Matted art seems to give added depth and substance. I think I would use a cream/beige mat, not too white with the art. Love the horse!

I like the floater frame look on stretched canvas art.
