Larson Juhl UK, previously Arqadia, offers the most comprehensive range of picture frames, mountboard, glass and accessories in the market, and has worked with James Cropper from the day the business was founded.
Attracted to its artisanal approach and expertise in colour, Arqadia (then called Arquati) challenged the papermaker to create a small range of mountboardin 20 colours. James Cropper had never made mountboard before.
Fast-forward 40 years and that range has grown to include over 300 colours and styles. Arqadia’s prudence in looking for a partner to create the best long-term solution was successful, and demonstrates it values-first approach.
The business is now part of the Berkshire Hathaway company Larson Juhl, selling James Cropper specialist mountboard and archival grade boards throughout North America, Europe, Australasia and Asia.
