The Goltz Group started with one store in a third-floor walk-up over 35 years ago and has evolved into a thoughtfully curated collection of four design-minded businesses with a shared vision of helping customers create inspired places to live and work. The company’s reputation for providing authentic customer service and exquisitely unique art, framing and home decor has made its businesses a popular destination for Chicagoans and people-in-the-know from all over.
As the largest picture frame store in the country, Artists Frame Service offers a breathtaking and unmatched selection of mouldings from all over the world, including inlaid marquetry, intricate silver leaf motifs, the same glitter used by couture gown makers in Europe, high-gloss lacquer and more.
The people of Artists Frame Service have art backgrounds and an average tenure of 10 years. They know their stuff and have a passion for framing that borders on the obsessive – from the buyers who learn Italian to facilitate annual trips to Italy where they help create exclusive frames, to the framing consultants who work with clients to find the perfect frame and mat for that modern art piece or vintage flea market find, to the craftspeople in the company’s 40,000-square-foot facility who are empowered to stop the process if any frame doesn’t meet their excruciatingly high standards.
Since opening its doors in 1978, Artists Frame Service has pioneered the one-week turnaround, earned a loyal following among customers, and launched its own line of mouldings and picture frames that are distributed to hundreds of frame shops across the country: Bella Moulding and Prisma Frames.
Whether you’re looking for a collection of oil paintings to woo clients in your executive suite or a mixed-media sculpture to welcome guests to your home, Chicago Art Source offers a full range of corporate and gallery services to help you achieve your vision, including art acquisition, consultation, custom framing, installation and project management. And since Chicago Art Source is part of the country’s largest art and picture framing company, its consultants handle your entire project in-house.
Armed with art and design degrees, Chicago Art Source consultants understand that the right artwork can make a powerful and lasting impression for potential employees, customers and clients. From complementing your existing artwork to commissioning a painting from a local artist to selecting reproductions to support one statement piece, Chicago Art Source consultants work with clients, interior designers, architects and facilities managers to help you meet your business objectives and budget.
Situated in the heart of the Clybourn Corridor, the Chicago Art Source Gallery offers a diverse collection of artwork, knowledgeable staff and welcoming environment for both first-time buyers and seasoned collectors. The gallery has cultivated relationships with a wide range of artists who work in varied media and scale, enabling its staff to help clients find that perfect piece through a vast inventory, special commissions, rotating gallery exhibitions and first-class sourcing.
At Jayson Home, beautiful things aren’t just a passion. They’re an obsession. For nearly 20 years, the store’s buyers have scoured the globe to find a sublime collection of modern and vintage furniture, tableware, lighting, textiles, candles, books and other accessories that add a striking layer to any well-traveled room.
The Jayson Home team is passionate about what they do – whether they’re finding a one-of-a-kind rug in a Paris flea market, crafting a unique floral arrangement, helping a customer pair a modern pillow with an antique tufted leather sofa or making sure a delivery arrives on time. With a dedication to service and an eye for design, the store’s staff effortlessly creates looks that are edgy yet elegant, sophisticated but never stuffy, timeless yet of the moment and always uniquely your own.
A destination for top designers, style editors and savvy shoppers, Jayson Home’s retail location is housed in a century-old, 20,000-square-foot converted warehouse in one of Chicago’s busiest shopping districts. The store also operates a website that is a favorite resource for design aficionados from around the world. Jayson Home is regularly featured in magazines such as Elle Decor and Architectural Digest, and on countless websites, blogs and television programs.
Leveraging years of experience importing and selling frames, as well as working with customers at Artists Frame Service, the Goltz Group launched Bella Moulding in 1999, followed by Prisma Frames in 2010. Distributed to galleries and frame shops nationwide, all the company’s mouldings and frames are tried and tested at Artists Frame Service before making it into the Bella and Prisma product lines.
Bella Moulding is a boutique line that manufactures and distributes stunning mouldings and picture frames selected by framers, for framers nationwide. From crystal glitter used by couture European gown makers to an ornate silver leaf made with an intricate 10-step process, Bella Moulding is used to create some of the most innovative framing in the industry.
Combining engineering ingenuity with artistic integrity, Prisma Frames is a state-of-the-art line of seamless acrylic frames unlike anything else in the industry.
