Incorporating Next-Gen Display OLED into Interior Design
The TV, which had moved inside the bedroom, is coming out to the living room again. While it was difficult to design a living room with the TV mounted on the wall in the past, the modern display can now complete any interior by allowing the TV to be part of the wall, thanks to OLED.
To put it simply, OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) is a display in which the pixels emit their own light. For example, in a 4K resolution UHD TV, 3,840 horizontal and 2,160 vertical pixels all produce color and light individually. Since each pixel emits color and light on its own without a back light, it displays accurate colors and brightness that closely resembles real-life objects.
Wall mounted TVs and curved TVs have already become passé. With the advent of OLED, TV sare now slim enough to become part of the wall, light panels can be bent freely, and there’s even a TV that uses the screen itself as a diaphragm for the speaker. If existing displays limited the imagination that goes into content and devices, OLED is creating more freedom in form and thickness to enrich our daily lives, displaying more true-to-life content on the screen. Currently, the most noticeable difference is in the living room, with wallpaper TVs changing interior designs. We asked an interior designer, an architect, and a stylist about the strengths and the decorative ideas that come from using the wallpaper TV.
Styling Idea 1
Our Home as a Gallery
OLED + Art
To appreciate masterpieces, the trip to the Louvre Museum isn’t necessary anymore.Created with OLED technology, the Wallpaper TV can be attached to the wall like paper and does not require a separate TV shelf. On the white wall surface, replace works of art with the Wallpaper TV and match the display to the color tones of your sofa and armchairs to transform your home into a Scandinavian-style gallery house.
“When you plan to decorate your living room like a gallery, the biggest trouble is where to hang the art. In the case of the living room, it is not easy to find the right spot because one wall is occupied by windows, the sofa is placed on one side, and the TV is across from it. OLED enables us to change the in-screen template freely, which resolves this concern at once. When you’re not watching TV, set it to display gorgeous artwork to add more sophistication to your space._ Interior Designer Jeong Eun-ju

A Small Garden in Your Room
OLED + Natural
During the winter season as cold weather continues and we spend more time living indoors, I recommend OLED TV as a way to plant a garden in your living room.In a lounge-style living room with steel frames, tile finish, and minimalist black and white furniture, adds a touch of nature with images of flowers and leaves.
“In recent years, as minimalist architecture has become the popular style for structures as well as finishing materials, we often add highlights with artwork instead of applying complex decorations or bold colors. Perhaps the greatest advantage of OLED TV is that it displays pictures perfectly as if you’re seeing the real thing. Scenic photos and artwork with natural motifs emphasize vivid colors, which might even look more real than nature.”_ Architect Kim Hak-jung

The Epitome of New Modern Styling
OLED + Cityscapes
What’s the easiest way to place the memories of your last trip in your home? If you incorporate your favorite city scapes in home decorations, you can express your own personality while also augmenting modern ambiance with stylish urban images. With a contrasting brick finish and fluffy new modern furniture, I added a view of Manhattan, New York, to create a pleasant lounge area.
