Six years in the past I helped launch the Samsung Body TV with fairly presumably essentially the most epic and creatively rewarding partnerships thus far – 4 extravagant makeovers (a 100-year-old barn, a classic greenhouse, an enormous boathouse, and a floating barge). They nonetheless maintain up and I’m nonetheless actually happy with them (shout out to Brady Tolbert for being with me in New York for 3 weeks executing these excessive makeovers!). This product, as you recognize, revolutionized the TV within the residence and I’m not simply saying that as their former spokesperson – however as a mother, designer, and human being who may be very specific concerning the fashion of tech she brings into her residence. Earlier than The Body, we must design round our valuable black packing containers, however now we will design with them since our Artwork-looking TVs seamlessly improve our room designs.
Effectively, excellent news – since that partnership six years in the past these TVs, like all worthwhile tech, have solely gotten higher. The Body continues to be the one TV I purchase or advocate as a result of it appears so darn good in a room (and clearly, has entry to all of the streaming companies that we’d ever want and extra). The TV may be very skinny and sits flat towards the wall like a chunk of artwork and there are much more bezel choices (offered individually) than there was (aka “the body” of “The Body”). Samsung sells many lovely bezels and there are additionally third-party ones (such because the one featured right here, from Deco TV Fames), so the sky is the restrict by way of design. The show artwork choices are additionally unbelievable and rising. It’s a no brainer choice for me (not like most different design dilemmas) and one which I’m extremely grateful for.
The Curated Artwork Choice
The entire thing about this TV, the rationale to purchase it, is that it appears like a chunk of artwork, however not like a standard piece of artwork, this one you possibly can digitally change with just some clicks in your distant. The Samsung Artwork Retailer workforce has partnered with so many artists, galleries, and museums to curate collections that span so many various kinds, colours, mediums, and my favourite half – many rising artists. So right this moment, we’re providing you with a peek into our household/media room to point out you not solely the expansive assortment but additionally what a distinction altering the artwork in your TV could make to your room, way of life, (and temper).
How Does It Work?
In an effort to entry the expansive curated assortment of over 2,000 items of artwork, you possibly can subscribe for $4.99/month or $49.90/yr to be able to change your artwork as a lot as you’d like (which as a decorator and mother may be very enjoyable).
Utilizing the distant, you possibly can search after which select by artist, style, medium, SEASON (that’s proper), or fashion. The youngsters love doing it as effectively and whereas I don’t at all times agree with their decisions (ahem) I really feel prefer it’s really an effective way for them to get “screentime” and be taught concerning the energy of artwork and shade. You can too arrange a slideshow to rotate photos routinely.
One Room, Three Methods
In the present day I’m going to point out you our household room with three completely different kinds of artwork (and coordinated styling) to provide you a way of what the artwork may do in your room. As you recognize I really like each single fashion (leaning at all times classic and completely happy) and I usually lean towards the architectural fashion of the house. So whereas this home is extra Scandi farmhouse (each minimal and conventional), I believed it could be enjoyable to mess around to point out you what your potentialities are, stylistically.
Type #1: Traditional/Conventional – Many Of “The Greats”
Whereas the Winslow Homer seascape within the opener photograph is our favourite for each day (and works so effectively with the seascape wall behind the couch) I really like so lots of their different traditional/conventional work as effectively like this one by Caspar David Friedrich from the Berlin State Museum. Samsung’s Artwork Retailer has additionally partnered with The Met so you may have entry to lots of the classics and never simply those we’ve seen a billion occasions, loads of extra up to date or sudden items and artists. Our youngsters acknowledge lots of them from their artwork class which makes us all really feel good/proud (wholesome screentime FTW).
Type #2: Eclectic/Bohemian
This was such a enjoyable alternative for me to dive into my prop home and mess around with colours and kinds (and no, you don’t want to do that – it’s simply an train to point out you the chances it doesn’t matter what your fashion is). This lovely piece of artwork by Kim Keever is wild and enjoyable (Elliot LOVES it) and introduced in so many colours that I really like into the room. It’s like attempting on completely different outfits for various events. When you may have the subscription service you possibly can change it day by day if you would like, actually. Our youngsters are usually not impressed with my extra subdued artwork style today in order that they instantly change it to one thing actually funky/bizarre/wild which I admire (and don’t battle).
Type #3: Modern/Fashionable
The trendy, post-modern, and up to date artwork collections within the gallery are sooo good and albeit instructional. It’s a peek right into a world that I don’t know an excessive amount of about however is so carefully linked to up to date design. This superior piece is by Okay’period Morgan in case you have been curious:) I can’t inform which one I really like extra, actually (In all probability the Bohemian as a result of it’s so not what I usually am today).
The Samsung Artwork Retailer is tremendous straightforward to navigate, choose, and show. The curation is superb – recent and very tasteful – it doesn’t really feel like inventory imagery you would discover wherever. I had no thought the breadth of how the Artwork Retailer has developed till I began enjoying round and it was tremendous inspiring. They even curate for seasons and never in a tacky “illustrations of Frosty the Snowman” type of means, however extra in ethereal winter artwork and sure, some that really feel extra festive and celebratory. The workforce behind the artwork choice and curation is tremendous spectacular and so they care about ensuring that it has a extremely numerous selection with loads of impartial artists.
However after all, you possibly can nonetheless watch TV in your TV must you favor regular display time. With just some clicks it goes from artwork to, say, the EHD YouTube channel 🙂
