Ever since I saw The Royal Tenenbaums (and this Tenenbaums-inspired room from Domino), I’ve been obsessed with the idea of having a gallery wall.

It was like we all collectively willed the service into existence, The Secret-like, with our powers of visualization! We’d all been waiting for a solution to the framing problem that was low-hassle, attractive AND affordable, and it seems like Framebridge is the answer.
