MQF History

Our History

Museum Quality Framing was founded by Adrian Hanauer in 1988. We now have 8 locations serving the greater Seattle area. Our history and success has been built on outstanding quality, design and support of the arts and our communities.

In 1999, Museum Quality Framing purchased Beard's Framing and Frame Central, based in Portland, OR, expanding the business to over 25 stores throughout the Northwest. Beard's Framing and Frame Central have a strong framing tradition in Oregon dating back to 1974.

Northwest Framing, the parent company for Museum Quality Framing, Beard's Framing, Frame Central and Northwest Framing Commercial Services is the largest custom framing company in the Pacific Northwest.
