The beauty of any object is dependent upon its presentation, and is augmented by the masterful hand that frames the viewer’s sight.  Frames are not merely a vehicle for display and preservation; they form the window in which we experience a work of art, and are integral to our interactions with aesthetics.  At Belle Meade Framers of Nashville, Tennessee, we understand that a frame becomes part of the work, and is an inseparable component of our appreciation of any piece.

Throughout our 40 years of practice, Belle Meade Framers’ masterful crafts-people have built their acclaim upon uncompromising standards of excellence, and working closely with our clients to understand the environment in which each work will be displayed in order to select the perfect frame to compliment both the work itself, as well as its viewing space.  Our custom framing services can accommodate any art object, from paintings, pictures, and prints, to instruments, mirrors, clothing, or any piece that requires delicate preservation without sacrificing its ability to be displayed and enjoyed.

Professional Custom Framers

Belle Meade Framers began back in 1974 as a humble shop on Kenner Ave. in Nashville, Tennessee by a pair of skilled art preservationists who saw a need for high-quality craftsmanship and custom framing services in the local community.  In 1997, Kevin and Joanna Dransfield purchased the business and formed Belle Meade Framers, continuing the original owners’ dedication to preserving fine art with the same standard for uncompromising excellence and style.   
Over the last two decades, the Dransfields have grown their commitment to quality craftsmanship and unmatched service, coupled with the area’s most extensive selection of frames and materials, all at competitive pricing without sacrificing our uncompromising dedication to our clients.  Exceeding the customers’ expectations is at the heart of everything Belle Meade Framers does which is why they have been the Nashville area’s premier commercial framing professionals for nearly 40 years. 

Our Values

At Belle Meade Framers, we understand that each item we frame carries a unique, personal value for our clients, and it is our goal to preserve your cherished items in dazzling displays that will become the focal point of any space. 

From oil paintings, photographs, diplomas, or antiques and collectibles, we are committed to maintaining each work for decades to come. 

Our Promise

What constitutes Art is a matter perspective, and at Belle Meade Framers, we seek to preserve all prized items with same care and precision.  Whether it be a poster, jersey or even an instrument, we realize that your item is an extension of yourself, a piece that defines your sensibilities. 

Our philosophy is that a frame should enhance any piece, and act as an integral part of its reception, one that is displayed proudly and adds to the ambiance of the space.  We are committed to you and we won't be happy until you're happy.

Your memories are worth preserving, worth sharing, so let’s turn them into something even more beautiful together
