Partnership Expresses Contemporary Luxury Living in New Ways Through Marriage of LG OLED TV Technology and Home Décor
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., July 12, 2018 — LG Electronics USA has joined forces with contemporary Danish retail furniture brand BoConcept and renowned interior designer Sarah Sherman Samuel to create a custom living room space in the flagship BoConcept showroom on Madison Avenue in New York City that highlights the elegant glass design of the LG OLED E8 TV with AI ThinQ®. The living room design showcases the importance of material and form factor in modern home décor and visitors to the retail location will experience Samuel’s vignette styled with the unique picture-on-glass 65-inch class LG OLED TVs.
“BoConcept’s long-standing tradition of modern furniture with the highest functionality, design and quality, made them a natural fit for one of the smartest and most elegant TVs ever on the market,” said David VanderWaal, Senior Vice President of Marketing for LG Electronics USA. “The room’s refined glass design celebrates the transcendent technology of LG OLED to create a captivating statement piece in your home. And thanks to Sarah’s ability to effortlessly combine styles to create distinctive spaces, consumers can visualize new ways to bring their dream living room to life.”
The elegance of glass meets the unparalleled sophistication of OLED technology for a gorgeous image that appears to float in the air. Harnessing the unmatched picture quality of LG OLED technology as well as the convenience of LG’s proprietary ThinQ AI technology, built-in Google Assistant and compatibility with Amazon’s Alexa, the E8 series LG OLED TVs deliver a previously impossible home cinema experience. Wall-mounted or on a tabletop, the latest iteration of LG’s unique picture-on-glass design is the perfect complement to today’s modern living spaces.
“Glass as an element of design is one of the most versatile you can incorporate into a space. I find it an ideal complement to natural materials like wood, leather, and fur which is why the new LG OLED TV is a designer’s dream. I feel the TV is showcased at its best when used with those contrasting elements which is what I worked with when designing the living space within the BoConcept showroom,” said Sarah Sherman Samuel. “It brings a level of sophistication to any space.”
“When you take a closer look at modern interior decor, technology and furniture are steadily becoming more integrated,” said Steen Knigge, BoConcept Marketing Director, Americas. “Home-based tech products are evolving into sleeker designs to looking more and more like artwork, and LG’s latest product is no exception. As a company with Scandinavian roots looking to strengthen its U.S. foothold, having an established global brand like LG turn to us as a partner is a phenomenal honor. We’re excited to see what we’re able to accomplish together.”
