A living room can feel incomplete without this one important home accessory: a good TV stand.
Massive screens need to rest on, or above, something, and there are numerous options out there to make that happen, from Scandinavian inspired designs to sleek, modern pieces and even one that comes with its own built-in electric fireplace to really warm up a room.
Here are six of the best, in a variety of different looks.
1. Nathan James Wesley Scandinavian
The Scandinavian is a cool and sleek model that serves as something as a statement piece for your living room. With contrasting lights and darks, the stand adds a splash of high-contrast design to the room, without having an exorbitant cost. Featuring engineered wood as the base, with accentuating white doors, as well as anti-scratch legs, Nathan James has developed a practical and functional product that delivers on storage space too. There are two large shelves in the exposed part of the stand, as well as cabinets either side — big enough to stack DVDs or perhaps even fit vinyl with ease. And there’s enough room on top to fit a soundbar to complement your TV.
2. Beachcrest Sunbury
For a different option, the Sunbury stand with a built-in fireplace is a good place to look. Featuring four shelves, as well as a built-in electric heater. It holds 150 pounds of weight, and can also fit a TV up to 60 inches long. Numerous colors are available as well, but the barnwood varnish adds a real complement to the folksy fireplace in the middle.
3. Whalen Payton 3 in 1
Form meets function with the Whalen 3 in 1., which offers a stand sprouting up from the center panel allowing you to attach your TV like a wall mount. The screen then can rotate and tilt according to the layout of your room. That same column can also be detached, and work as an actual wall mount — clearing space on top of the stand itself. Three spacious shelves also offer room for DVDs, consoles, and a variety of other fixings for your viewing experience.
4. Manhattan Comfort Vanderbilt
Manhattan Comfort describes its Vanderbilt entertainment center as a “Modern TV Statement”, and it’s easy to see why. Almost six feet high, and equipped with its own lighting center, it looks more like a built-in storage unit with TV capabilities than a TV stand. A large space in the middle offers room for a TV of up to 80 inches wide, and comes with brackets for a wall mount. Two drawers, as well as cabinets with doors, offer tons of space, with shelves ideal for soundbars or a more advanced sound system. Though it will require some effort to assemble, as a maximalist, fancier option, the Vanderbilt is a fantastic choice.
5. South Shore Munich
There isn’t a wide selection of wall-mounted TV stands out there. It’s an interesting design, but one that can look fantastic when pulled off. South Shore’s does just that. Featuring metal handles and two large metal brackets that accentuate a wood finish, the Munich model has something of a rustic look. It’s plenty spacious, too, with a cabinet, as well as four mini-shelves, each large enough for a console or DVD player. Though the company recommends that you mount your TV on the wall above it, the Munich can certainly handle having a screen sitting on it, with plenty of room for other things on top, too.
6. Tangkula TV Stand
Tangkula is another model with an interesting design. Rather than having drawers or cabinets, it has open but very deep shelves. Its solid, thick base gives it a sturdy look, and the wooden aesthetic makes it a good complement to the room. It can hold 250 pounds, so a sizable screen, as well as any other items on top of the stand, is no problem. Finally, four holes in the back make cables easily feed-able into the various devices that may be in the stand.
