The times when TVs were so huge that were a separate single piece of furniture that supported itself are fortunately, a long-time gone. Despite the fact modern TV-s are coming with a set of optional supportive legs for most cases a modern customer (as yourself) prefers TV to be hanging on contemporary TV-stand or standing on one.
That is why we have a place for TV-stands, TV-units or sometimes they are called entertainment units or entertaiment furniture. Hanging ones - we have a few, but most of TV-stands that comfyco.com offers is purely the ones that TV is standing on. It is more solid, more convenient and generally in most cases simpler and looks better. Besides, who wants to drill those walls? ...
Most TV-bases serve also as a furniture to keep all TV-related stuff organized. Receivers, Cable boxes, various gaming consoles (PlayStation and X-BOX), some DVR-s, Video Recorders, DVD-players, you name it. There's a lot of different stuff that might find a use on a modern TV Cabinet. That's why most of them have an openings or pre-drilled holes on the back. Most of these products have open shelf design, but some are completely closed, featuring either drawers or closed panels.
One of primary TV unit tasks is cable management and most of these units built with cables in mind. Hiding the cords is, in most cases, efficient - but that depends on the model. Some entertainment furniture has rather open design and adds up to interior by its sleek lines, so you would just need to see what your particular application needs.
You would need to see what style of TV-unit suits you better. For traditional sofa, recliners, or puffy fabric sectional - more classic wooden TV-stands would be a best choice. For a low-profile leather sectionals with contemporary glass coffee table the best choice would be probably a high-gloss lacquered stand in either white or oak finish. Don't forget the filters! The best contemporary TV Stands we sell are from J&M. Some of the most interesting transitional TV cabinets are from Modway. Great stuff. There are some certain glam style mirrored cabinets listed here that can be used as a TV bed too.
You should not be afraid to pick a low TV-units out - a regular person gets used to a 'height' of an image really fast (remember those bar TV-sets that hang near the ceiling?) and it really does not matter that much if TV is a little lower than your point of view or a little higher. Consider the stand look and design first and worry not about a TV-height. Ask us any questions you may have before you make your purchase.
