Manhattan Box

Made in Minnesota by a family-owned steel shop, our exclusive Manhattan Box Frames add unique sculptural style to your walls. To achieve the beautiful patina of these frames, natural steel has been oxidized to show subtle variations in color and texture. No two frames are exactly alike. Every frame is carefully inspected, cleaned and packed to ensure the highest quality. Frames can be hung vertically or horizontally to best suit your artwork or photos.

    Designed for stud-supported hanging

      Customer comments about Manhattan Box Frame 8x10 Centered:

      Other reviews have addressed the look of the frame, so I will focus primarily on the difficulties in hanging this frame.

      There were no issues with the quality of the frame; all three frames match in color and the sizing is accurate within 1/16" (I'm guessing, I didn't break out a draftsman's ruler). However, the frame sizing varies by about 1/4" if you rotate from a vertical picture orientation (~20" wide) to horizontal picture orientation (~19 3/4" wide). I did not measure, but a visual inspection of the picture cutouts indicates that they are centered.

      With respect to hanging the frames, there are three 3/8"-1/2" wide lips/edges on the back side of the frame to allow you to hang the frame vertically (two orientations) or horizontally (1 lip/edge/orientation). Each edge has a centered "v" notch cut into it, leaving less than 1/4" of the edge before it makes a 90 degree turn to provide depth. What this means is that the frame has less than 1/4" of material to "hide" an anchor, screw, bolt, or whatever.

      Therefore, if you live in a loft and wish to anchor the frame to a concrete wall, simply buy one concrete screw. Unless the head of the screw is enormous, you will have a concealed anchor and your frame will have that clean, flush look in the advertisements. Additionally, if you have the good fortune of having a stud centered where you wish to hang this frame, it's a one-screw-and-done procedure.

      If, however, you live in a house that does not have concrete walls and the studs are up to code but somehow not ideally located for you to hang one or more of these frames, you will encounter a bit of a headache. A mixture of sidewinder hangers, expansion bolts, and as a last resort, threaded anchors should provide a solution for you. Ultimately, if you want a fully concealed "hanger" and a flush-mounted frame, you may be out of luck.

        I've had two of these frames for years and they have been my favorite photo frames. I recently moved and the accent wall had space for one more, so I naturally went back to R&B to grab an additional frame. The frames are well made, great construction and priced just right.

        Looks beautiful, but I'm having a hard time hanging it. I used a standard picture hanging device, but the part I put into the wall shows above the frame.

            This frame is beautiful & eye catching. It houses one of the most important pictures I will ever take. A picture of my dog Flip. He has moved on physically, but his image and spirit live on with us. It took awhile to find the perfect frame. Thank you Room&Board..

            Customer comments about Manhattan Box Frame 8x10 Centered:

            I bought 3 and one of them was a nice dark rusted patina. The other 2 were more like coppery gold with the welding marks showing. I wish they would have all been the same but the light copper just was a disappointment and not what I wanted at all. They come from the warehouse so you can't hand pick. I had to return all 3 unfortunately. [...]

              Customer comments about Manhattan Box Frame 8x10 Centered:

              Hanging the frame was easy. The difficult part was trying to figure out what kind of picture frame hook to use because it's so heavy. You can just use screws and hang the frame on them. But I was able to find sidewinder hangers which works well. Also, it looks like one side of the frame doesn't have a lip to hang it on which doesn't matter if you get the centered frame but it may matter if you get the off-centered frame and wish to hang it a certain way. That said, I would definitely buy this frame again.

                    We used this frame as actually an accent wall mirror for our livingroom. Swap out the photo glass for mirror glass and it's that easy. The patina of the frame is great with bronze/gold/black/red-browns tones, and works especially well in a vintage and aged space - our home is a 1934 house in Miami. Overall, the piece adds depth and interest in being both modern, basic, but also warm and with character.
