The Biggest Framing Trends For 2021

We’re a few months into the new year, so it’s the perfect time to report some of the latest framing trends that have been gaining traction thus far in 2021. Social distancing guidelines will likely be in effect throughout the majority of the year, so it’s a great time to personalize our homes with these four increasingly popular framing ideas.

Embrace Imperfection

Uniformity is not a requirement when choosing a home’s interior design. We’ve been spending more time than usual in our homes over the last year, which has caused many homeowners to prioritize comfort and personal taste above all else. Why not shed the minimalist, “everything has to match” approach and try a more eclectic approach? Thinking outside the box with complementary colors, varying sizes and different textures is a great way to breathe new life into a room.

Emphasis on Quality

Throughout the rest of 2021, we expect buyer preferences to be biased toward quality products that focus on both functionality and aesthetics. We’d all like our homes to be a unique reflection of ourselves, and a great way to achieve that is to add character with handmade, bespoke frames designed with precision, care and natural materials.


Collages aren’t exactly a new, cutting-edge idea, but they have been starting to grow in popularity once more. At this point in the year, our homes are still partially serving as our workspaces, and a wall art collage consisting of relevant photos and cutouts is sure to step up the aesthetic of your home office.


You can never go wrong with plants or flowers! There are a few ways you can configure your frames to bring a more natural feeling to any room. For starters, dried flowers arranged within a frame have been growing in popularity as a means to add a pop of color. You could also frame botanical prints and accent the additions with carefully placed floral arrangements or houseplants. Either way, bringing plants into the fold is a fun way to accent our living spaces, and we expect it to remain a popular trend throughout the year.
