Slice of Living Design
Sony believes and understands that more than a good viewing experience, a television should also have the aesthetics to fit any environment. This is why the new BRAVIA televisions are designed with sleek lines and elegant slim displays to complement one’s home interior.

When hung against a wall, the X9300D series sits very close to the surface, virtually disappearing into the wall and leaving nothing but the picture. In addition, the clean cable management keeps wires out of view, providing an equally elegant look when viewed from behind.
Each showroom curated by Heima portrayed living spaces for different personalities, while highlighting the design flexibility of the Sony TVs.

It was easy to incorporate the BRAVIA TVs in each design given its slim frame and cable management feature that made styling the home interiors a breeze,” said Bong Rojales, Co-Owner and Marketing Director, Heima.
