Extraordinary Framing


 

At Memento, clients are welcomed into our comfortable living room-like studio, surrounded by hand-chosen moulding samples and a gallery of framed artwork.  
 

You speak to one expert, not several who may lack the proper experience...
 

We consider ourselves artists and professionals dedicated to maximally enhancing clients' artwork and welcoming clients back year after year. 

 

 

Memento began nearly 
40 years ago... 

Previously called Yesteryear, it was located in a charming little studio across from the Pacific Design Center, and served not only our private clients but also local designers in West Hollywood.  

In 1994, former New York interior designer Debora Dale partnered with the business' founder Yolanda Tisdale, and together we introduced a specific method of art conservation that is still an essential component in the work we do today. Our picture framing has never failed to transcend industry standards and consistently evolve with our beloved clients in mind.

 

(Framing your world should be a comfortable affair.)

Custom Framing is as easy as...

One...

On the day of your appointment, you'll sit down for a private consulation with Debora in our comfortable living room-like studio, surrounded by a myriad of hand-chosen moulding samples and framed artwork decorating the walls. 

two...

Whether custom framing and mirrors, ribbon & tack boards, or shadow boxes suit your fancy, we work exclusively with you to find the most fitting method of displaying your priceless possessions.    

and three.

In addition to picking up your finished work the old fashioned way, we also offer home delivery, interior consulting, and picture placement and installation services.   All work is done on premises.


We say, "Frame Everything"

We're excited about each new project, whether it's an invaluable piece of fine art, a collection of Jean Cocteau for a museum, a child's drawing, a client's Nobel Peace Prize, a collection of memorabilia, or a large hospitality project requiring inexpensive but elegant framing.  We also have fine craftsmen to hand carve and water gild important frames to order. 

Meticulous attention is paid not only to the design of a piece but also to its "innards", because the materials we use insure your artwork is protected against premature aging or damage - therefore retaining value, longevity and most importantly...beauty.
