How We Chose

Wondering what exactly we look for when selecting our "best of the best"?

Good Looks

Crazy fact: The average American spends more than 7 hours (per day) watching television.

I know; you're watching the television not the stand. But it's in your periphery. And, chances are, it's a focal point in your living room! (PRO TIP: Save your living room and add one of our favorite modern accent chairs to create a better focal point!)

So, since you don't have tunnel vision (I hope), your console is in view as well, its appearance can make a huge difference in your living room.

Shouldn't you enjoy the way it looks? Yes!

For that reason, we picked the best TV stands and console designs from our store. Whether you need a mod white stand or a floating concept, we're here to help make sure you find one you love that fits your space.


Our curated selection includes only the best materials available. From wood veneers to high gloss lacquers and glass.


We only included items from our website that are manufactured by the best brands, because we know that this is an investment you'll need to last for a long time. Each of the brands that we selected from is known for excellent craftsmanship.

No matter which of the options you order, you can be certain that it will stand (pun intended) the test of time.


One of the deciding factors of whether or not to buy something is price. Because of that we've made sure to include a wide range of options and items from our store. Plus, please click the link below or the side banner to save on thousands of items from our website!

Now that you know why we chose these items, here they are in all their glory:

Rowan Media Center

Practical and practically perfect, our Rowan Media Center is made of eco-friendly solid Moso bamboo (help save the planet!). The slatted design of the Rowan allows the infrared light from your remote controls to reach your devices. Available in two sizes and finishes with a completely finished back.

A rounded case wrapped in rich walnut veneer and polished steel legs give Murrah its characteristic appearance. With a blend of retro and new-age design, Murrah is the best of both worlds: a low profile TV console with ample open and closed storage.

If you were to look back at a vintage Better Homes and Gardens magazine, you might see something almost identical to our Franklin Mid Century TV Stand. With classic good looks, Franklin might just distract from the television you place atop it. We love a good throwback and think you will, too!

Eldridge Media Cabinet

Our Eldridge Media Cabinet is the quintessential piece for someone that prefers a clean and contemporary look. Available in your choice of gray or sleek white lacquer finishes, Eldridge has your back! And plenty of space to store your media.

Drawers and doors galore, eco-friendly solid Moso bamboo (help save the planet!) and style to boot, our Currant TV Stand is definitely a keeper. Currant is closely related to the Rowan above, part of the same brand of bamboo furniture on our website, and features a finished back.

The Maarten TV Stand provides just a pop of color with its enclosed sets of drawers in cream and mint green that can also be concealed by its sliding doors. Maarten brings back a nostalgic feel and is one of our favorite items for Mid-century modern fans and minimalists alike.

Baxter Media Cabinet

We dig everything about our Baxter Media Cabinet, from its warm walnut and gray oak veneer to its sophisticated matte gray lacquer. Add to that the slim powder coated legs and the variety of storage related spaces and we can't find a single thing we don't love.

Baxter may be the best console design for 2021!
