Welcome to Artifex

Artifex has supported interior designers, artists, galleries, collectors and individuals since 1995 with the newest technology in framing and installation. Our staff artists will include you in our hands-on process to create your vision. Whatever your art and framing needs, Artifex “makes art easy.”

Portfolio & Services

After carefully listening to the designer's needs and developing a style profile, Artifex presents a variety of suggestions within the client's taste and budget range. Our research process eliminates a lot of the trial and error usually associated with such fulfillment and design projects and lets the results shine through. Let us show you how we can reduce the time and effort usually associated with the purchasing of art and framing.

About Us

Artifex has built its reputation during the last 20 years as a well-respected supplier of art, custom framing and mirrors. Our diverse market experience includes such industries as hospitality, commercial, residential and healthcare. Artifex is centrally located for easy access from both the Design District and the city of Dallas. We have access to an extensive variety of fine art, sculpture, prints and reproductions. Many of our art resources are now available to you online 24/7. Artists are on staff to create your exact vision, plus many other creative options that are only available through Artifex.

Those with discerning tastes, including designers, architects, corporations, institutions and individuals, rely on Artifex to provide the perfect finishing touch to their living and working environments. We understand that the framing process can be intimidating for both experienced designers and first-time purchasers. Too often, shops have an overwhelming display of sample frames and mats but they leave you to make your way through this maze by yourself. Or worse, they imperiously pick out the exact frame and mat they prefer without any consideration of your vision.

Not Artifex. We believe there are a variety of different framing options for each project that are equally striking. No job is beyond our capabilities or unworthy of our expert design. We’re sensitive to each client’s budget and receptive to his or her design requirements.

Whether you are a seasoned interior designer or an individual with a highly treasured personal object, we guarantee your satisfaction by including you as a vital part of our hands-on creative process. Whatever your art and framing needs, Artifex “makes art easy.”
