The metropolitan difference

Custom made museum quality frames for artists

Metropolitan is a 3rd generation family business located in Minnesota. Our frames are made the old fashioned way. We use state of the art equipment to do our own milling, cutting, assembly, and finishing to ensure you get the finest quality frames available.
