TVs: 10 modern concepts for contemporary design

For interior designers, there’s always been a love/hate relationship with TVs.

Modern homes aren’t imaginable without these devices, but successfully incorporating them in an interior can be quite a challenge.

Thankfully, today’s range of TVs offers many options for aesthetics and functionality.

While some designers prefer to hide them from the eyes, there are plenty of modern solutions that turn TVs into their own pieces of art.

1. Objet TV by LG

When the house or apartment is a little short on square footage, deciding where to place the TV can be quite a headache.

Luckily, nowadays, there are many creative options available, like the one – offered by LG.

The 65-inch OLED TV resembles a canva, which can be leaned against the wall up to a 5-degree angle. 

This TV is literally a piece of art since it looks like the artwork you would see in a gallery.

With an interchangeable fabric cover created by Danish textile designer Kvadrat, it will look great in any modern home.
