Finishing School

Gilded Frames
Egyptians were the first to gild woods and metals, followed by the ancient Chinese, whose techniques were later taken up by the French.Typically, he gold sheets used in gilding are typically 1/1000 of an inch. Traditional methods of application are still used today on our Reflectel Frames!

Lacquer Frames
What’s the difference between lacquer and regular paint? Lacquer dries by solvent evaporation or a curing process. We use “lacquer paint”, which typically dries harder and smoother producing a more durable finish.

Metal Frames
As residents of Tribeca, we are at the heart of Industrial Chic! Our metal frames are bold and contemporary. There may not be a flourish in sight, but lovers of this aesthetic can choose from zirconia bronze, ground gloss, aluminum, welded or burshed steel, with a variety of beautiful patinas.

Wood Frames
Wood is the foundation of many hand-made frames at Reflectel. In the 16th century, frames were made out of oak, until pine became popular in the 17th century because it was lighter and easier to work with. Today we offer them in maple, oak, cherry, and rare burl variations.

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  3. My partner and I absolutely love your blog

    It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed information. Excellent read!
    I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to
    my Google account.

  6. Awesome issues here. I’m very glad to see
    your article. Thanks so much and I am having a look ahead to contact you.

    Will you please drop me a e-mail?

  7. It’s genuinely very difficult in this busy life to listen news on TV,
    thus I only use web for that purpose, and get the latest news.

  8. Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a entirely different topic but it
    has pretty much the same page layout and design.
    Outstanding choice of colors!

  9. What’s up to every body, it’s my first go to see of this webpage; this weblog includes remarkable and in fact
    fine information designed for visitors.

  10. I do accept as true with all of the ideas you’ve presented on your post.
    They’re very convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the
    posts are very short for starters. May you please lengthen them a little from next time?

    Thanks for the post.

  11. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my
    apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My
    iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but
    I had to share it with someone!

  12. Wow, awesome blog structure! How lengthy have you ever been running a blog for?
    you make running a blog look easy. The total glance of your website is excellent,
    as neatly as the content!

  13. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
    video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
    on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  14. Ahaa, its pleasant conversation concerning this article here at this web site,
    I have read all that, so now me also commenting here.

  15. I’m really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever
    run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

  18. Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

  19. When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each
    time a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.

    Is there a means you are able to remove me
    from that service? Many thanks!

  20. Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, amazing blog!

  21. An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a colleague who has been doing a little homework on this.
    And he actually bought me dinner simply because I found it for him…
    lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this issue here on your web
    page.

  22. Damn, you are gorgeous!”that confidence looks so sexy on youlove seeing your smile, it brightens my day every timeI wonder what makes you endlessly fascinating.
    I think girls like boys who pay attention to them and are positive in their remarks. Whatever comment you make, make it positive.

  23. I would say that what is most appreciated is if a girl is used to being told she is pretty, say how intelligent she is. If the girl is used to being thought a brain, tell her that you find her so attractive.
    You will stand out if you don’t state the obvious but go a little deeper. Comment positively on something she said in class or something nice you saw her do. It shows that you are paying attention to her, in a good way.

  24. She gets to analyse who she is, who she is friends with, why somebody she calls her friend could say something so distasteful and ugly to her.
    She realizes that some people are full of shit and have devoted their lives to psychologically bully her and destroy her.
