Floater frames are frames which create the optical illusion that the canvas is floating within the frame. It can also appear to the viewer that the piece is suspended within a box, which explains the alternate name of box frame, which you might also see advertised.
Take a peek at these stunning box frame canvas prints that you can buy directly from our website. Our favourite is the Frosty Mountains boxed canvas.
When to choose a box or floater framed canvas
When choosing a frame for your canvas artwork, it’s important to consider what the most suitable frame for the job is.
Here are some reasons to consider selecting a box frame:
● The style of artwork - floater frame canvas prints look great with modern artworks
● When it’s important to display the edges of a piece of canvas art for impact or detail
● To add a touch of contemporary class
