As a Mother of 4 school aged boys I can never have too many photo frames to display the many memories of my family.
When I unwrapped the triple hanging photo frame I was delighted. Inside a plain cardboard box hid a wonderful treasure well protected with 2 layers of bubble wrap to ensure it arrived in tact! On removing the frame the first thing to strike me was the gorgeous appearance of the natural wood, which had a beautiful grey brown colour to it. This colour is beautifully offset with the chalky white of the delicate hearts hanging from each individual frame.
The wood itself is smooth and tactile to touch and the simple addition of the 6 hanging hearts is a brilliant feature which adds a charm of its own. Each pair of heart is hung on the frame with a rustic yet elegant rope bow which turns the attachment into a stylish feature in itself!
The rustic charm of this set continues through the natural rope which connects the 3 frames to each other and culminates in forming the hanging point at the top. This enables the recipient to easily hang the frame within minutes with a single hook or nail-great for us busy Mums!
Each frame holds a 4×6 inch photo and the combination of 3 frames means it is versatile for many combinations of family photos no matter what family set up you have, children alone on each one and a joint family one, or like mine, 2 children in the top and bottom frame and a full family photo in the middle!
The photos are easy to put in the frame thanks to the sliding fixtures at the back of each frame which holds the backing wood securely in place. The quality of workmanship is also evident at the back of the frame which is as smooth and flawless as the front.
The only improvement I could think of (if pushed to find one) is to have the frame arrive in an outer box of its own which would add another dimension to it if given as a gift.
Due to the design of the frames hanging beneath each other and the natural style of these, they are versatile enough to be hung in any room of the house and to be an elegant feature in their own right.
With a RRP of £14.95 I think this is great value for a set of 3 linked high quality frames. This is a timeless frame which would be well admired in any room particularly when filled with photos of your loved ones!
