White frame are very attractive for framing anything from fine artworks to photographs. As a professional picture framer I would always choose a brushed finish white frame over the high gloss frames.
High gloss white frames are easily scuffed and any scuff will stand out. The gloss finish is also easily chipped and joining the corners from a framers perspective can be more troublesome.
The off-white wood mouldings are not only extremely compatible with most framed artworks but can easily be touched up with a liming wax to restore them to prime condition.
