about us


Established downtown, in Cincinnati’s Over the Rhine (OTR) area, over a quarter century ago, Westcott & Schaff is a full service framing shop. Now located in the Design District of Oakley, in the Voltage Lofts, Westcott & Schaff is centrally located to make our extensive experience working with museums, galleries, institutions, designers, restoration professionals, and building contractors on art projects available to our customers, new and old.

Owner Nathaniel Westcott and our seasoned craftspersons, have combined experience across a variety of fields and areas of expertise, allowing us the knowledge base to best serve you in your own framing and art projects. Fine art and art history, graphic design, theatre (offstage and on), and digital photography and restoration are all skills and knowledge that our staff have accumulated to create an imaginative and capable bunch of custom framers. Whether you need a budget friendly frame for the show poster that you’ve had up with thumb tacks, or are freshening up your existing collection with updated conservational materials and more fashion forward designs, or seeking a truly individual and unique display for the artwork that you’ve spent decades hunting for your collection, our experience is at your disposal so you can be certain that your art is being presented and protected in the best possible way.

From the moment you step off our elevator onto the fifth floor of the Voltage Lofts building, overlooking the Oakley/Hyde Park areas of Cincinnati, you will be amazed at the expansive selection of custom frame mouldings that we have assembled to give our customers every advantage when it comes to creating the perfect look. While the quantities of options laid out before our customers can be somewhat daunting, we are here to help you to navigate through your options, to determine your personal style, and to arrive at the perfect solution to any framing need.
