Interior Design – The Tech dilemma

Blog Graphic

Our lives are dominated by technology – phones, tablets, pc’s and, of course the television. When it comes to our homes and what we do with the TV we generally adopt one of two approaches, we either embrace it and make it a feature or we try to hide it. In the case of the former, we make the TV the focal point of the room, rather as the fire used to be the focal point, either on a stand or unit or mounted on the wall. Often we make it the hub where the family gather together. This may be in a living room, a living space within an open plan kitchen/ diner or even within a designated media room.

The alternative is to try to hide or disguise the TV. Traditionally, we might have done this by enclosing it within a piece of furniture such as a stylish cabinet or perhaps a built in cupboard. Now there is an alternative. Samsung’s The Frame functions both as a TV and a piece of art. You can either choose from a body of artwork or use your own photos. The result is that when not being used as a TV you have a lovely piece of art or photo to enjoy which could be displayed on its own or as part of a gallery.

I love this idea and think it works wherever in the house you have your TV but particularly those areas where you might not want it on display all the time.
