With a new season just around the corner, it’s officially time to spring clean our homes and get ready for the balmy months that lie ahead. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably feeling like a change is due when it comes to the décor too. After months of hibernation, I’m in the mood for something lighter, brighter, and less wintry. But what if I told you that 2022’s biggest interiors trend isn’t a lick of paint or a new Instagram trending vase? Instead, the home conscious are turning to the newest tech to give their living rooms some oomph. The electrical in question? Their television - specifically, the new Samsung Frame TV.

The Samsung Frame TV Will Totally Transform Your Living Room For The Better
Televisions have long been branded eyesores – but now with this flatscreen TV that turns into a piece of art, homeware buffs are making it the centre of their décor.
You wouldn't normally look for a new TV to improve the look of a room - quite the opposite in fact. People tend to argue over televisions, with some members of the family wanting the latest, biggest, most state-of-the-art, and others wanting more compact and muted designs as to be in keeping with the room. Unsightly when switched off and impossible to ignore, they can be a real point of contention. But gone are the days of the house proud going head-to-head with the mega-wide-screen-obsessed. With Samsung’s The Frame TV, compromise is now a thing of the past. Combining genuinely excellent artwork with the latest cutting-edge tech, it’s a TV designed to keep everyone happy. Let’s start with the QLED 4K display* – which boasts of being glare-free by absorbing reflections when on or off – so that even on the sunniest days, you won’t have to watch yourself on the screen. More tech specs see 100% Colour Volume which means you’ll see the colour the way it was meant to be seen thanks to the Quantum Dot display technology. It also boasts of having Netflix and all the mod-cons like Bixby, Alexa, Google Assistant. But let’s get down to the real selling point: the look.
Sitting flush against the wall, it looks like it could be a painting. Housed in a customisable bezel**, this TV is reminiscent of an actual frame hanging on your wall and is as easy to hang as one too thanks to the Slim Fit TV-Wall Mount. But it’s the Art Mode that’s seriously special...
Turn your TV off, and instead of a dark screen you can display pieces of fine art in the comfort of your own living room. It’s even possible to activate an internal motion sensor to show your chosen painting the second it detects a person entering the room. Clever, right!? From watercolour lilies to crashing Japanese waves and abstract colour, there’s over 1400 pieces to choose from*** – meaning you drastically change the look of your lounge with the click of a button. Plus, with 16GB of built-in storage, you can store up to 1,200 of your own photos - simply send your photos to The Frame via your phone**** or a USB flash drive and exhibit a masterpiece of your own making.
Your entry level 32” will set you back an extremely reasonable £399 while the largest (a cinematic 75", with an 85" coming soon) goes up to £1999 – not cheap, but would you really expect to pay less for a multi-use work of art? It’s officially time to invest in the perfect piece of technologically-advanced decor before summer rolls around.
