An independent, family-owned business based in East Sussex, Patrick Ireland Frames is one of the UK’s leading producers of high-quality, hand-finished frames and mirrors. For 40 years, Patrick Ireland Frames has been striking the perfect balance between innovation and experience. Every aspect of a bespoke frame or mirror is customisable, which gives the highly skilled frame-makers, gilders and finishers scope to create unique frames and mirrors to meet any request.
Every frame and mirror is made and finished in-house using a combination of traditional and modern methods. Each frame starts life as a plain timber moulding, before being made to the desired size and prepared for its bespoke finish. The chosen finish is primed using gesso to create a smooth base which results in a seamless, uninterrupted finish – even at the mitred corners. As all frames are finished by hand, the choice of finishes is limitless.

Founder Patrick Ireland began framing his own collection of artwork in 1972. Soon enough, friends started requesting bespoke frames for their artwork – and Patrick Ireland Frames was born. As the business evolved and demand for their products grew, the brand expanded into making elegant framed mirrors, and more recently introduced metal frames to complement the timber frame range.
Today, Patrick Ireland Frames is a trusted name with leading interior designers, hotel groups, art curators, artists and galleries, as well as with private clients.
“After 40 successful years of building the business, we are committed to continuing my father’s legacy. Thanks to our team of talented framers and finishers, and our made-to-order approach, we have been able to innovate and adapt quickly to emerging trends within the world of interiors and bring every request to life.” – Abbie Ireland, director of Patrick Ireland Frames.
Patrick Ireland Frames is committed to offering a tailored and bespoke service, from the initial point of contact to the delivery of each frame and mirror.
