28 Atypical Picture Frames

From Memory-Keeping Timepieces to Sneaky Safes

— August 22, 2012 — Eco
The best way to frame a photograph is to use one of these atypical picture frames. The picture frames featured here are made out of all sorts of materials and perform a variety of functions. When's the last time you made a call using a picture frame?

These atypical picture frames can display both digital and physical pictures. The physical photo frames are designed to be quirky and fun, such as the inflatable photo frame and the picture frame necklace. The digital photo frames are meant to be multifunctional, with devices such as the telephone photo frame and photo frame printer letting you do more than just display pictures. Both types of frames show just how much you can improve upon an existing design simply by injecting a small dose of creativity.
