Design Insider Larson-Juhl Riviera Colours 1


Riviera features a stripped wood effect that is popular with many interior design enthusiasts, with a choice of eight stunning colours that range from the subtle to the vibrant.

A tidy 27mm in size, this stunning new moulding brings endless opportunities for the creative framer. There is potential for a whole plethora of different pieces to be given a truly individual finish from art to photography to memorabilia, from antique to modern, from discreet to overt.

The finish for this moulding is produced by a process of applying two base coats, sanding in between and then adding a hand finished surface. The colour options are white, green, pink, blue, rust, light grey, mid grey and black.


Geneva has partly been launched in response to the demand for more FSC accredited mouldings. It also offers a deep rebate and unusual profile that brings added depth and interest. With three classic colour combinations of gold/brown, grey/silver and black/silver, Geneva will enhance a very broad range of artwork.

Made from finger jointed pine wood and with its hand painted little ‘step’, this range – which comes in 32mm and 55mm – shows real craftsmanship.

The soft brush technique will help avoid any quality issues in transit. Also, all foils have a degradé patina from outside to the inside. Being darker in the outside, together with the metal lip, brings the eye to the centre and to the artwork – ideal for showcasing hero pieces. Chevron sets and a chop service apply to these two new collections, like all Larson-Juhl wooden mouldings.
