Tv stand for my living room

December 26, 2012 in Design Dilemma
Hi All,

I'm trying to find a tv stand that will hold about 42" flat screen tv. I have included a picture of my living room (still a working progress :)). Here are the options I have come up with so far, but not sure any of them will work. any suggestion will be helpful! Thanks!!

Where in the room do you plan on putting it? There are a lot of great ones out there.

directly across from the coffee table. The wall is not showing. FYI, the throws and pillows i'm stilling testing out, will likely change those. I want to be able to coordinate with the coffee table, and side table sofa.

The first one seems more put together....less apt for clutter and cords showing.

Wall mount the monitor next to the painting on a movable bracket. Then you can find a piece that can house the equipment with the option of hiding the equipment behind cabinet doors. You can use a fabric tube "chase" that will control the wiring from the cabinet to the monitor.

The first one does look best. I like the idea of mounting it on the wall. If you could move that chair to the other end of the sola then I would get a corner cabinet. This will be better for viewing.

I vote for the first one. Not a fan of mounting tv on wall. I like to rearrange furniture frequently so hate to be tied to one thing. Here's another tv stand that may work for you.

Of those offered, I prefer the first one. HoweverI think that with the modern lines of your sofa and chair, you need something more contemporary, such as the units below.

I very much like your coffee table. It's interesting and eclectic. But adding an end table in the same style totally deminishes the charm of the coffee table. You could use it elsewhere as a night stand.

I'm sure that you know that you need a much bigger rug. Your art is hung too high and I would return the mirror.

Hi Augustina,

I would agree with Carolyn in the direction of the furniture. Your sofa, the throw and pillows are more contemporary and it would be great to see a slight push towards more modern or Mid-Century Modern with the TV stand. Since it does seem you have an eclectic flair I would also encourage you to move in a bolder and simpler direction for your art. I think this would help the space feel more cohesive.

Kind Regards,
Taryn

thanks for pointing things out. I like a contemporary and eclectic mix, but feel that is not cohesive yet.

I like the first one also the best. You may even want to look into a console table or buffet would be less big box store and more custom looking. Drill a hole in the back and hide all the boxes etc in the cabinets. http://www.zgallerie.com/p-1708-planters-buffet-large.aspx

I am a big fan of wall mounting. I have 3 tvs all of which are 2-4 inches off the wall and all the cords are hidden in the wall. Its clean and modern and takes up less space.

I think you have a great handle on the eclectic and contemporary mix! Don't loose the flair, just don't forget to be bold and confident in the items that you choose because an eclectic/contemporary style can either be defined as "confused" or "bold". I believe you are definitely headed in the right direction.

Hi---agree with Carolyn regarding the media cabinet, side table, and rug. Pics for color inspiration and pattern that I think would work well in your space. Off to a great start. Good Luck! http://www.etsy.com/listing/113239712/coasters-handmade-travertine-with

Go with the first option for sure - the other two won't work cohesively with your other furniture. I agree wholeheartedly with the other suggestion to lower your artwork and rug - maybe even consider getting larger scale artwork that reflects your aesthetic. I think the furniture you have already is really cool, so trust your instinct and if you love something, or keep thinking about it, go for it!

It's perfect for your space, the style fits your room
I was looking at your original room pics... and starting thinking....
You may consider using your coffee table in the corner as an end table... find a great lamp for it,
use the square ottoman in front of your sofa, find a tray for the top so it can function as table or footrest as needed. Then move the little end table to the other side of the sofa.
Enjoy your space
Cheers!

i think the 3rd best fits with your space but it might be too tall. you have low sofas and you want to sit, looking straight, not up.

Go vintage... a credenza with a mid -century style would look nice.

some of those tables look unstable to me. Be sure that the tv is securely mounted even if it is on a stand. Children are killed every year when tvs fall on them--this is more true of older sets, but you don't want a nice new tv ruined either.
