NY's Best Corporate Framing & Art Restoration Shop

For more than 100 years, New York’s best corporate framing and art restoration shop has been Heritage Frame & Picture, a 4th generation custom art framing business founded in 1878 under the name New York Frame & Picture Co. Corporate custom art, mirror and picture frames are specific for commercial establishments and residential buildings.

Corporate framing is also known as industrial framing and commercial framing. This includes residential complexes, banks, law firms, restaurants, hotels, museums, art galleries, government offices, schools, universities sports arenas, public spaces, casinos, religious institutions, and not for profits.

Unlike custom frames for private residences, corporate framing often incorporates working with event planners, interior designers or building managers. Heritage Frame understands what is required for these environments in terms of coordinating work schedules, working with teams, anchoring art to walls to prevent accidents or theft and ensuring the proper quality of the frame, matting, and installation hardware is utilized.

When framing art, memorabilia, posters, mirrors or pictures for an art collector or a family, the client is given the same attention as our corporate framing clients. The difference usually amounts to the volume of work being framed, the necessity to use a varied amount of frames due to the environment the art will be installed as well as the artwork contained within.

Most framing shops do not have the experience or expertise to work with commercial/ industrial picture framing clients. The corporate environment can lend itself to working long hours, often many after hours and weekends as well as often having to restore damaged, stained or ripped art in their collection. Heritage Frame’s primary clients are corporate and we work nationwide with many of our clients by installing artwork throughout their offices in and outside of New York. We also travel for art restoration work and to frame and install art for events, and for corporate gift giving.

We have an extensive list of referrals and client list. We have also been featured in the news and received awards for our accomplishments and success in art framing and art restoration.

Custom art framing, mirror framing and picture framing are all important for effective interior decorating and design. Heritage Frame & Picture Co. provides custom framing and corporate framing for some of the top interior designers in New York City and Westchester County. One of the common items to include when designing the decor of a home, office, hotel or restaurant is the type of and style of the custom frames that will be utilized to enhance the room or area.

Custom art framing is not just for professional interior designers. Even if you are a novice at choosing a custom picture frame or frame for your artwork, we at Heritage Frame can guide you through the process.

Some of the reasons to use custom art and mirror framing interior design are as follows:

Custom framing is crafted one at a time by one of our expert craftsman. Our frames are not installed at a factory or by mass machinery. Our work is hand done in our framing shop in Tarrytown, New York. Each frame is built for your unique design with high quality materials and constructed with care.

  • Custom framing preserves your art, pictures and memorabilia, to gift to the next generation.

  • Custom framing is great for revitalizing your current artwork, portraits, diplomas, mirrors, pictures, collectables or children’s artworks.

  • Custom framing enhances your home, office or place of business. It also provides an opportunity to surround yourself or guests with the images and objects that inspire. With professional, custom framing, your treasured photographs and artwork become part of your interior design.


Here are some interior design ideas for displaying your custom framed artworks, pictures, mirrors and memorabilia.

Custom art, mirrors and pictures enhance any room. This is especially true if you choose a custom frame to complement a theme of the room or location. This is includes the color, sise, shape and style of the picture frame and the color of the matting. Picture framing helps connect pictures and artwork in the room’s theme.

Custom designed metal frames work well with modern themes. Wood frames are versatile and come in such a large variety that they can be easily incorporated into any decor.

Instead of displaying a group of photos, instead place a large custom framed picture or artwork on a wall to create the illusion of a window.

If you have a shelf or picture rail instead of hanging art on the wall, place a group of pictures and mirrors in area. This cause people to stop and look at your display and get lost in the moment for a while. This enjoyment is relaxing and memorable.

Custom framed art works well with other memorabilia and decorations. Mix framed art, pictures, mirrors and collectables with other decor such as candle, vases, plates, glasses and flowers.

Interior designers know the value of custom art, picture and mirror framing. Interior decorators who provide work for corporate entities, office buildings, restaurants, hotels, banks, office buildings and residential buildings. Private art collectors also take full advantage of custom art framing.

It is for these reasons that if you are interested in having art, mirrors, collectables or memorabilia installed at your home, you should have your works custom framed. Store bought frames are not of the same quality of a custom designed art frame.

Heritage Frame & Picture Co. looks forward to working with you to select the perfect frame. We are experts at designing and building frames. We have been in the business for 140 years.

Please enjoy the read from Wikipedia...

 Hartsdale, a CDP/hamlet/post-office in the town of Greenburgh, New York, lies on the Bronx River just 20 miles (32 km) north ofNew York City. It is served by the Metro-North Harlem River commuter rail line into Grand Central Terminal. Hartsdale is the home of America's first canine pet cemetery (started by veterinarian Samuel Johnson in 1896), and the world's first Carvel Ice Cream store (1934), which closed in 2008.[1]

Hartsdale's earliest settlers were the Weekquaeskeeks (sometimes spelled Weekquasgeeks), a sub-tribe of the Algonquian tribe that lived in most of southern New York, from Westchester down through Manhattan. Weekquaeskeek is an Algonquian term believed to mean "place of the bark kettle", and this kettle appears in the Greenburgh town seal today.

After the earliest British colonialists arrived, the area was developed under the manor system when Frederick Philipse, a Dutch merchant and British Loyalist, was "given" the land by the British government. As lord of his Philipse Manor, he leased his land to tenant farmers who, at least for a time, were believed to have lived alongside their Native American neighbors.

There is evidence to show that Hartsdale played a significant role during the Revolutionary War, some of which still stands today. On October 28, 1776, a Revolutionary War battle was fought alongside the Bronx River, near the site of the current Hartsdale train station. The Odell House (on Ridge Road, built in 1732) served as the headquarters for the French general the Comte de Rochambeau, and is where the count and George Washington are supposed to have formed an alliance leading to the Battle of Yorktown. The house was later named after John Odell, Washington's guide who bought the house in 1785. In 1965, his descendants deeded the house to the Sons of the American Revolution, and today the house is in severe decay, awaiting funds to transform it into a museum.

After the Continental Army and American colonialists won the Revolutionary War, Frederick Philipse III (third lord of the manor and great-grandson to Frederick Philipse I) fled, his land was confiscated and sold to the remaining farming tenants, many of whom were descendants of the Hart family. The intersection of Central Park Avenue and Hartsdale Avenue was named "Hart's Corners" after Robert Hart, one of these farmers who successfully bid for the land, and in the mid-19th century the entire area became known as "Hartsdale".

The area remained largely agrarian until 1865, when Eleazar Hart deeded land for the development of the New York and Harlem Railroad line into Manhattan, setting the stage for Hartsdale to change into a more cosmopolitan commuter village. Between 1880 and 1940, large tracts of farmland and estates were subdivided and converted into private houses and apartments at a furious pace. By the 1960s, almost no remaining farmland was left for sale.

In 1904, the successful German-Jewish banker Felix M. Warburg (1871–1937) purchased large tracts of land to build his 500-acre (2.0 km2) "Woodlands" estate in Hartsdale, a summer home next to the country club where he and his wife Frieda Schiff Warburg (1876–1958) spent considerable time. The estate would later become an important site in the history of modern American ballet, when on June 10, 1934, their son Edward M. M. Warburg (1908–1992) helped produce the first American performance of George Balanchine's masterpiece "Serenade". In keeping with the family's philanthropic efforts, Frieda Schiff Warburg, on her death in 1958, bequeathed a remaining 150 acres (0.61 km2) to the town of Greenburgh to build a public school. These 150 acres (0.61 km2) are now the home of the Greenburgh Central School District (formerly called Greenburgh Central 7 School District) and Woodlands High School. The main Warburg mansion currently serves as the school district headquarters, but other remnants from the original estate grounds can still be seen standing in the surrounding woods and neighboring streets. The Warburg family's New York City home would later be donated to become the Jewish Museum of New York.

On February 9, 1928, Hartsdale made history when the Scottish inventor John Logie Baird (1888–1946) transmitted the world's first inter-continental short-wave television signal from a transmitter (call sign 2KZ) in Coulsdon, Surrey (a suburb of London) to his colleague O. G. Hutchinson in the cellar of Robert M. Hart, an amateur radio operator (call sign 2CVJ) in Hartsdale.[5]

In 1932, Henry Jacques Gaisman, inventor and founder of the Gillette safety razor blade, purchased 136 acres (0.55 km2) of land along Ridge Road, most of which he purchased from George A. C. Christiancy, son of the former U.S. minister to PeruIsaac Peckham Christiancy. In 1952, at age 82, Gaisman married his nurse Catherine "Kitty" Vance Gaisman, aged 33, a former Catholic nun. In 1957, he and his wife Catherine (Mrs. Henry J. Gaisman) passed the title for his land to the New York Archdiocese for $600,000, with the agreement that they could live there as long as they wished. Mr. Gaisman died in 1974 at age 104, and Mrs. Gaisman remained on the estate until she moved to Connecticut in 1995. In 1999, the estate was saved from sale and development when the Town of Greenburgh acquired the property and reopened it as the Hart's Brook Nature Preserve. Part of the agreement included the preservation of some portion of the estate as a home for retired Catholic nuns. Today the Catherine and Henry J. Gaisman Foundation continues to donate large amounts of money to support medical research.
