For the TV lover (who doesn’t want to see the TV when it’s off)

Have a TV enthusiast in your life who’d rather not see a blank screen when the TV’s off?  

Many Mills clients have installed “Frame” TVs in their homes, especially in rooms where they want an alternative to the look of a TV turned off.  To date, the largest Frame model was 65”.  However, Samsung recently introduced a 75″ version of the Frame TV and will soon be releasing an 85″ version. The Frame enhances any room with beautiful art that’s also a TV.  When the TV is on, the picture is stunning high-resolution QLED quality.  The Frame also has customizable options to match any taste and decor. Andand they’re magnetic, making them simple to attach and detach for a different style.

For the movie enthusiast or serious gamer

To get a 120” screen, you need to have a big projector hanging from the ceiling in the back of the room, right?  Not so fast my friend.

Many manufacturers have released ultra-short-throw projectors. These projectors can be placed only inches from the wall, while creating a 110”-120” diagonal image. Short throw projection is great for smaller rooms. Or existing rooms that may not have a lot of wiring. The projector can be housed on or in a credenza below the TV. In fact, Mills can offer semi-custom furniture solutions for a projector and pair of speakers.  Many people also use these projectors for video games since not much room is needed to get a stunning large image.
