NEW BUSINESS The Frame Station: Where Every Picture Finds Its Perfect Frame

Last Updated 4/23/2024

In the heart of Central City, nestled on 14th Street West, lies a new shop for art lovers and memory keepers alike—The Frame Station. Owned and curated by Kris Hillen, a lifelong Huntingtonian with a passion for framing, this shop is more than just a place to buy frames; it's a celebration of community, creativity, and craftsmanship.

A Glimpse Inside

As visitors step into The Frame Station, they are greeted by a curated collection that tells the story of local artistry. From sculptures by the talented Carter Taylor Seaton, known for her Collis P. Huntington Sculpture in City Hall and more, to Kris Hillen's own framed and unframed paintings, each piece reflects the spirit of the community.


But The Frame Station offers more than just artwork on display. It is a hub of services, from custom framing to canvas stretching and printing needs. Kris has brought over a decade of expertise to Central City, ensuring that every customer finds not just a frame, but a tailored solution for their cherished pieces.

Crafting Experiences, One Frame at a Time

In a world of mass production, The Frame Station stands out for its personalized touch. Kris often hears the surprise in customers' voices when they discover the variety of services offered. "Ya'll do framing?" is a common question, and Kris is always ready to take on new possibilities—from selecting the perfect frame to offering solutions like mounting and matting for large canvases.

Repairing Memories, Preserving History

Frames at The Frame Station hold more than just pictures; they cradle memories and stories. The Frame Station doesn’t just sell frames; they are skilled in the art of restoration. Whether it's a damaged frame or a slipped canvas, they are equipped and willing to bring new life to treasured moments.

The Journey to The Frame Station on 14STW

The decision to set up shop on 14th Street West was not random for Kris. It was a choice steeped in community and creativity. Over the years,  Kris said he noticed this area had become a hub of artistic energy—a place where people came together to celebrate their love for art and culture.


Kris's journey to The Frame Station was a mix of fate and determination. Passing by another potential spot, he almost settled elsewhere, but something drew him to this space on 14th Street West. Despite the challenges, Kris knew it was where he needed to be, and with perseverance, he made his dream a reality.

Your Frame Awaits

Whether you're an art enthusiast seeking the perfect frame or a homeowner looking to preserve a cherished piece, The Frame Station invites you to step into its world. It's more than just a shop; it's a part of Central City's vibrant creative fabric, ready-to-craft experiences, and frames that tell your unique story. Kris said he is different than your big-box framing stores, as he is never afraid to take on a challenge, and he says he will always be real with his customers, letting them know if he can fix or create the frame they want. 


Stop by, say hello, and let's find the perfect frame together at The Frame Station.
