CEDIA 2018 Collaboration Fuses Elegant Design with Uniquely Sophisticated LG OLED TV Technology
LG Electronics USA teamed up with renowned interior designers Kate Rumson and Sarah Sherman Samuel at CEDIA Expo 2018 to reimagine modern living spaces. The collaboration fuses the elegant styles of two of the most sought-after designers with the award-winning technology and stunning design of 2018 LG OLED AI TVs. Their designs come to life for home theater custom installers this week at the LG’s CEDIA Expo booth (#4835) in the San DiegoConvention Center.
“The work of both Kate and Sarah speaks for itself, each with a graceful mix of distinctive personal style and artful expression – which marry perfectly with the sophistication that LG OLED TV technology brings to the living room,” said Tim Alessi, LG Electronics USA’s senior director, home entertainment product marketing. a “CEDIA Expo is the perfect canvas for these renowned designers to showcase their craft, combining advanced technologies with timeless design that will redefine what a custom living space can look like.”
Tapping into the vast design knowledge and expertise of Rumson and Sherman Samuels and collaborating with highly-regarded custom integration experts from Osbee Industries, Inc. and Value Electronics, LG has carefully curated two modern living room vignettes that leverage the artistic versatility of the 77-inch class C8 and 65-inch class E8 series* LG OLED AI TVs’ highly-acclaimed Picture-on-Glass design, which appears to float in air.
Seamlessly incorporating the displays into urban- and suburban-themed living rooms, alongside sleek furniture pieces from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Semi-Handmade and more, Sherman Samuelsand Rumson demonstrate the integral role of technology in today’s home décor. Through the two vignettes, the designers illustrate how LG OLED TVs “are just as much of a statement piece as any other design accessory regardless of size, location or stylistic flare,” Alessi explained.
“Designers typically work to design around TVs, but LG OLED TVs can actually be used as a prominent design element and focal point in the living room,” noted Rumson. “Prior to working with LG, I couldn’t imagine being this excited about designing a space around a TV, but the 77-inch LG OLED blew my mind with its sleek design and image that appears to float mid-air. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before and can’t wait to see it shine at CEDIA.”
“I am thrilled to be working with LG to help showcase the 2018 LG OLED TV lineup at CEDIA this year. The Picture on Glass design of LG’s OLED E8 is incomparable to anything else in the market and its versatility lends itself well to many different décor styles but I am most excited to be incorporating futuristic technology into my design,” explained Sherman Samuels. “The ultra-thin, elegant design and advanced AI capabilities of LG’s OLED TVs encourage me to consider how décor trends will evolve around the new technology and continually inspire me to design for the future.”
