    Customer comments about Manhattan Frame 8x10 Centered:

    These frames are exactly what I needed to fill a wall in the living room of our small condo. I bought four of the 8x10 sizes and used black and white photos. It really does look like art.

    I bought two offset and two centered ones to give a little more interest. They are a bit heavy and we were concerned about it at first, but we bought heavy duty hanging nails and once they slip in the notch in the frame, they're secure.

    We had to return one of the frames because it was warped, but thanks to R&B's excellent customer service, this was replaced quickly.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Excellent customer service! I cannot say enough about this; R&B rocks!

        These frames are beautiful and really complete our living room décor. The weld marks do show around the insert, but that's part of the industrial look. While those don't bother me, the discoloration (some were white on the frames we received)did. R&B gave us the same fabulous customer service as always, and exchanged them for us with no problem. Love these frames!

        Customer comments about Manhattan Frame 8x10 Centered:

        I purchased six of these natural steel frames. Five of them had marks (small dots) randomly around the picture area. I was told by the sales assciates that this is a normal part of the natural steel manufacturing process. That may be true, but it looks like poor quality craftmanship. I am in the process of swapping them out for new, cleaner frames without dots. However, this is a hit or miss process as it depends on the shipment and is taking a while to get a clean looking frame. I do not encourage purchasing the natural steel.

                I bought 9 of these frames and included a mixture of 6 center and 3 off-center steel natural frames. We printed some of our own photography in sepia and the result looks incredible. The frames are very thin making a striking composition. They were easy to hang given the keyhole is right at the top so it wasn't a measuring nightmare. I did have to find some angled hanging nails at the big box store that didn't show above the frames, given the keyhole is right at the edge. We have had lots of compliments on our wall of photos and love them.

                  I thought the art piece I was framing was going to look great in this frame and it turned out even better than I had hoped. It looks absolutely incredible. It is now two art pieces in one; the frame and the artwork within. Great quality, beautiful to look at. Wonderful product. I will be purchasing more.

                      These are great frames. We bought 5 almost five years ago and moved...the wall was so big, we needed more. The only complaint was that the two new ones are a darker brown than the older ones, but they blend well and that is to be expected with such a long time between purchases. The newer models sold now have been improved with an easier way to hang them.

                      The product looks great now that it up. We bought 12 like they were displayed at the store. The frames are heavy and I was challenged to figure out how to hang them without the hook showing above the top of the frame. There were no directions. I finally found these Gorilla hooks that worked good.

                            To touch up the natural steel finish, we recommend using either a graphite pen or a flat black, outdoor grill paint and lightly misting the surface.

                            The natural steel has a clear lacquer finish so you can use a damp cloth and if needed, a squirt of window cleaner on the cloth to remove the fingerprints. Be sure to wipe the surface to remove any dampness.

                            The natural steel frames have no color added to them and is truly the material itself. Natural Steel material could be comparable to graphite in color. However each one will have its own unique characteristics like wood grain.

                            On the Steel frames located on the backside there is a single notch centered on three sides, Frame can be hung horizontally or vertically. Use any type of attachment that works best for the wall surface the frame is being used on.
