Marchand's New Facility is in the Center Frame

Marchand?s Interior & Hardware in Gonzales opened a new 4,000-square-foot framing and home d?cor facility in December 2017, offering visitors a unique range of home furnishings and custom framing options.

Shoppers looking for general framing, antique artwork and home d?cor are welcome to visit the new Marchand?s facility. From housewarming gifts, to birthday and bridal shower gifts, there is plenty of merchandise (including scented, seasonal candles!) to choose from to fit your gifting needs.

Those trying to upgrade the interior of their homes can bring in almost anything for professional, custom framing too.

?Our custom framing ranges from photos to artwork, jerseys, quilts and shadowboxes,? Kaylee Martinez of Marchand?s Framing and D?cor Gallery, said. ?Basically, if you can dream it, we can work with you to make it a reality!?

The framing process Marchand?s implements turns ordinary things into masterpieces. When guests arrive with an item that they would like to frame, Marchand?s walks step by step with them to choose the framing setup that works best for their piece. The rest of the customization is done inhouse with special equipment.

?There is a machine that cuts our mat boards out precisely to our measurements in less than a minute?it's very cool to watch!? Martinez said. ?We cut the glass and foam core board here as well, and then we piece it all together.?

In the future, Marchand?s hopes to expand with an additional 6,000 square feet to open up more space for a showroom. Doing this would make Marchand?s one of the most complete home centers in South Louisiana.

Along with the expansion, Marchand?s plans to start hosting more events for visitors.

?We are doing our first giveaway on Facebook at the end of this month.? Martinez said. ?We are also in the early stages of planning an event for October, so stay tuned!?
