Rarified: Art framing design

LOVING....After a friend suggested I check out a few things in Dickson, I was grateful to find this gem... a beautiful framing showroom and workshop. Rarified is refreshingly modern,with a 'designed' take on framing.

Rarified combines a gallery space with a personalised custom framing service emphasising style, design, creativity and interior design. Chill out at the layout table or on a lounge and browse through catalogues of inspiring art prints and posters, never ordinary, always a little unexpected, some rare.

Owner Samantha Simpson-Morgan, a photographer, Illustrator and lover of art says Rarified "aims to be a framing store unlike any other, friendly and accessible to all, that celebrates all things creative. Our mission is to bring framing up to the level of fashion in Australia and the world."

As part of the custom framing service, you can also have a 'vision board' (a custom pinnable board) painted in any colour you like, and framed, then it's up to you to add your own inspiration. They also love the challenge of framing holiday keepsakes and odd objects - anything is worthy of framing! Check out this on Samantha's blog.

Rarified also stock these amazing cushions by local designer Donna Aylen - HOT!

Rarified is also recruiting for a 'frame designer consultant and front of house' (part time) more info on the blog. Rarified is tucked in behind Zefirelli's, off Wooley street in Dickson. Fabulous!
