In recent years, the design world has shifted heavily to this minimalist approach. Interiors are minimalistic, clothing is minimalistic, water bottles are minimalistic and there’s even a book about the life changing magic of being a minimalist. I didn’t buy it, but trust me, I got the gist! Like many others, I appreciate a clean and simple aesthetic to my style, my home and my products. The hardest things for me to come to terms with have always been kids toys and televisions. Eye sores at every corner and no matter how hard you try to conceal or decorate around them, they are always the first thing to catch your eye in a room if they are misplaced. Thankfully, I’ve been seeing a lot of beautifully designed children’s toy companies coming to the rescue for parents desperate for prettier options. But no matter how fancy, or curved or flat screened televisions can be, they always just look like a large blank screen taking up space in the middle of a room. They’re impossible to conceal and even harder to seamlessly incorporate into a room’s design. Until now!
Friends, I do not usually geek out over in-home technology. I leave that to my husband. He single handedly appoints himself to keep us up-to-date on all the latest and greatest, and I usually don’t have an opinion. I didn’t even own a television until we got married. But I’ve been converted. My newest love you ask? The Frame television from Samsung. If you follow along on my Instagram Stories, than you probably caught all my behind the scenes shots from their recent event in New York City and saw first hand what the television looks like. Pretty sure that the photos of this television garnered more elated responses than the cutest photo I’ve ever posted of Sidney Sloane, ha! When they reached out to ask if I’d help introduce the product, it was an easy ‘yes’. It fits my personal aesthetic and makes the interior design geek inside of me very very excited!
I have always wished a television didn’t look like a television. When you don’t have a lot of space to work with and your living room is the first thing people walk into in your home, I just cringe at the thought of their initial view being a mounted black screen. Finally, those days are done. If you’re like me, when I first walked into the event and looked at the gallery walls set up, I couldn’t actually tell which pieces were The Frame and which ones were just artwork. Thanks to Yves Behar and his collaboration with Samsung, this creation fuses together interior design, art and functionality to shift your view and start thinking of your television as a statement piece. It adds value to your space, and when you’re working with a small space, every inch is valuable!
The Frame comes with a built-in art gallery, but you can also purchase or upload your own personal artwork or photos. The groundbreaking mounting system even lies super flush on the wall and has a single chord system that is so discreet you’d barely even notice it. Staying true to its name - it merely looks like a framed piece of art! I’m so happy when creative people partner with technology to create beautiful pieces. Screens aren’t going away, so it’s refreshing to have products that blend the two together!
