Artful Frames

Here is a Borneo Post Online article about the Picasso Framing House in Kuching.   Roger Chai is interviewed about his study of the creation of TV Frames and he now offers this service.

High End of the Market Emerges

You've decided a simple LCD/Plasma TV Mount is insufficient for your tastes. Your decor demands mounting and framing of your TV.  Even more importantly,  only the best will do.   Well, guess what, you are in luck, sir or maam. 

Thanks to the sophisticated folks at  Eli Wilner & Company, now even the uber rich can enjoy the tv framing trend ala Wilner's "3000 style frames to fit any interior."  No, these are not off the shelf tv frames but replica or original/period frames.  Think --with what would I frame real art?

How much?  If you have to ask....    Actually, if you must know, please sit down. Ok?  Replica frames range in price from $20,000 to $50,000. A period frame could cost anywhere from $30,000 to $250,000.

Do it yourself or have a master craftsman do it for you?

It's interesting to see whether or not the traditional art framing world has yet or will be starting to embrace the idea of building frames for TVs.  In that vein, here's a good webpage describing the process a company in St Paul followed to deliver a custom frame for one of their customers.  This is a really nice frame by the way!

Child's Bedroom

Going well beyond a simple frame for a wall mounted TV, here's an LCD framed for kids or as they say, "enclosed in an Apple shell."



I located another TV Frame outfit with a small twist. Telecubbie is a custom cabinetry company whose created a product that's sort of like a picture frame sort of not. See pic below.  I like the before/after.   $599-$699 covering 42" --50" inch TVs.  So now that you've got your TV Mount in place and TV imounted, maybe it's time to take it to the next level with a TeleCubbie?
