MQF History

Our History

Museum Quality Framing was founded by Adrian Hanauer in 1988. It has grown from a single store to 17 locations throughout the Puget Sound. 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 Frame Shops and Frame Central, based in Portland, OR, expanding the business to over 60 stores throughout the Northwest. Beard Frame Shops and Frame Central have a strong framing tradition in Oregon dating back to 1974.

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