Manhattan

Add a bold, industrial look to your walls with Manhattan frames, which are hand-welded in a family-owned metalworking shop in Minnesota. Large in scale, these frames provide a geometric, graphic touch and a unique setting for your photos or artwork. These frames feature the distinctive marks, texture and significant color variations characteristic of natural steel. No two frames are exactly alike. Manhattan frames provide a high-impact display, whether hung vertically or horizontally, individually or in groups.

  • Material Description: Our natural steel is domestically sourced from 99% recycled raw materials and hand-selected for consistent color and texture. Hand-welding can create unique markings, as well as color change, due to the heating and shaping of the steel. Subtle variations in color, along with the individuality of each craftsmans work, ensure that no two pieces are alike.

    Customer comments about Manhattan Frame 11x14 Centered:

    Wanted frames that made a statement by adding a design element to black and white family photos for a kitchen wall and adjoining garden room gallery wall. Used the 11x14 frame solo on a wall with 5 8x10 frames the length of the gallery. The frames gave the space a contemporary look and provided a non-kitschy way to show off the kids & grand kids. Beautiful, uncluttered punch to a photo wall!

        I LOVE these frames!!!! They are so unique and really showcase a couple of photos that I took in Paris. I would buy these again and may do so in smaller sizes for other photos. I also love that they are made in the US as are most of Room & Board items.

        Customer comments about Manhattan Frame 8x10 Off-Center:

        Great design but there are flaws in the product itself. Although it looks nice on the wall, the variations in the steel can actually be a little distracting and this makes the overall frames look less nice together.
        REMEMBER, the color difference is NORMAL so I suggest everyone to check CAREFULLY before they buy.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Had a few problems with the frames but turned out it was "within the normal range" because the steel is "natural".

            I ordered two of the 8 by 10 centered Frames.

            On one of the frames, the welding caused white spots to appear on the front of the frame. I touched these up with paint. The other frame was fine.

            I would suggest that the items need to be checked for defects prior to shipping.

            Service and delivery comments:

            I have been very pleased with Room and Board's customer service.

                Customer comments about Manhattan Frame 5x7 Centered:

                These frames are defective with visible pitting due to the soldering of the picture fixtures from behind. The defects detract from the otherwise good design. Given the cost of the frames, these defects are unacceptable. The customer service rep indicated that this has been a known problem for returns in the past.

                  Customer comments about Manhattan Frame 8x10 Off-Center:

                  Ordered 2 frames for 8x10. Both had small circles arrayed around the photos, on 2 of the 4 sides. Customer service claimed no knowledge of this, told me there were irregularities(these weren't irregular) but I could return them and get patina frames - only $40 more. Packed the two frames up which was a pain, and got two new frames. One was fine, the second had the same circles. Customer service this time knew about the circles but informed me that they weren't able to check the frames going out to make sure no circles on them. So I get he pleasure, again of having to pack up the second set of frames and get them returned. Appalling lack of quality control and for an item that is hardly inexpensive. One would think that they might show more concern for the quality of their products and for wasting so much time of their customers. Certainly will not deal w this company again.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Customer service awful. I asked repeatedly, the second go-around, to speak to a supervisor but Gina thwarted each effort I made. I am sure the company loves her. Frustrated customers like me, not at all
