The Lepolas (husband and wife team Lucas & Hayley) are The Calm Gallery's founding duo. The couple enjoy collaborating on just about all of their designs, which are inspired by old bits and pieces, their love of old sayings and phrases and simple design.
Since launching The Calm Gallery the couple have exhibited their prints in the prestigious Urban Retreat in Harrods, London, as well as having exhibitions across the UK and at Paul Smith's Space Gallery in Japan. These days they keep themselves rather busy running The Calm Gallery as well as their accessories brand Alphabet Bags (alphabetbags.com).
The Lepolas currently reside in Saffron Walden with their two cats Peggy and Alfie.
We do not currently offer a framing service; however, please find some advice on how best to frame this print below.
As a single colour design on white paper this print would suit almost any colour frame. In our opinion a simple white or dark wood frame would work really well.
This print measures 50cm by 40cm which is a standard ready-made frame size. Frames of this size can often be found in shops such as John Lewis and Ikea.
If you would prefer a frame tailored to specific requirements we would recommend taking the print to a local framer who would be able to offer expert advice and a wide variety of framing materials and options. There are also now many online framers who can custom make frames to your requirements. By searching online for 'custom frames' you will find many online framers stocking both standard sizes and frames custom made to any size, in a wide variety of options.
Vintage frames and pre-loved frames discovered in markets and charity shops can also provide unique and low-cost framing options. If a frame that you find is larger than the print fret not, a local framer would be able to cut a piece of mount that would allow the print to fit the frame perfectly.
