MAKING IT IN O.C. : Firm Re-Creates Museum-Quality Frames for Art

November 14, 1994

Riegler & Sons Gilded Designs in Huntington Beach produces authentic, handmade re-creations of period picture frames.

Owned by Peter and Diane Riegler, the company has 11 employees who use old-fashioned woodworking techniques to produce nearly 500 kinds of frames, including Italian, French, Spanish and American styles. The museum-quality frames are produced in a 9,000-square-foot plant.

Craftsmen mill, join, carve and gild frames to order for customers. Co-owner Peter Riegler began designing and creating his own picture frames while still a student at the Cleveland Institute of Art.

Riegler & Sons moved to Huntington Beach in 1992 after six years in Laguna Beach.
