Samsung’s Frame TV is perhaps the most well-known designer television on the market and its popularity comes down, in large part, to its familiarity. While it does push the boundaries of what a television can be, it does so in a way that is minimally invasive and doesn’t sacrifice the day-to-day television experience.
When in use, the Frame looks like just about any other television, save for the stylized bezel around the edge, which is actually a good thing. When you’re watching something, you want your TV to look like a TV. That said, the Frame really shines when it’s not being watched, so to speak. The Frame is designed to mimic the look of a framed piece of art, hence the name, and it takes its job seriously. When it’s idle, the Frame displays a variety of images, including world-famous works of art.
Samsung’s anti-glare technology reduces reflections, making your TV look more like a framed piece of art and you control what’s on the screen. The Samsung Art Store offers artwork for purchase or subscription, or you can upload your own works of art or photographs to your TV’s gallery. You can also customize the bezel to match any décor. Sizes and prices range between 32 inches for $599 and 85 inches for $4,299.
