When it comes to framing art, Nellie Seigel, sales manager at Artists’ Frame Service (1867 N. Clybourn Ave., 773-248-7713), knows there’s always more than one right answer. “It’s very personal,” she says. “But the point of framing is to make the art look as good as it can.” Clients sometimes worry too much about matching a frame to flooring or other elements in a room; she urges them to take cues from the artwork instead. “Jay [Goltz, who founded Artists’ Frame Service in 1978] says a frame should answer to the room but not take orders from it,” she notes. Good advice. She recently walked us through some choices for framing a small print of a colorful Tuscan scene.
