- Chelsea Frames
197 Ninth Avenue, at 22nd St.; 212-807-8957
Not your ordinary corner frame shop, Daniel Beauchemin and John Ross Beech’s Chelsea Frames is the framer for art-world royals like Annie Leibovitz. Tom Ford even sends pieces here from Paris to be framed en route to his ranch in New Mexico. Amateurs will appreciate the pair’s twenty years of taste and experience. Beauchemin is an interior designer; Beech worked at Ralph Lauren. Both will happily help you choose frames for anything from snapshots to mirrors to museum-quality artwork.
