Top TV Stands for the Quintessential Modern Home

While the definition of what makes a modern home, modern is subjective, there are definitely ways to decorate your space in a more modern way. When I think of "modern," what comes to mind? Well, I personally think of clean lines, neutral colors, streamlined and contoured furniture - no frills and ornate details. A modern design aesthetic is often a very minimalistic design aesthetic. While many modern homes employ a minimalistic design aesthetic, they are by no means boring. You just need to know how best to use your space, choosing stylish pieces and eliminating excess whenever possible. This principle of modern design can be applied to any type of furniture, TV stands included. Here is a list of my favorite modern TV stands for the quintessential modern home.

  • PRISM 50 Karim Collection TV Stand by OmniMount:

    In partnership with modern industrial and interior designer, Karim Rashid, OmniMount introduces this lovely TV stand as part of its Karim Collection. The entire collection utilizes a variety of different materials, shapes, and finishes to blend in with any decor. The TV stand, with its unique trapezoidal design and ample multimedia storage space brings a modern aesthetic to the masses, priced under $350.

  • TD108B Plasma TV Stand by Transdeco:

    This stylish piece from Transdeco definitely gives you more bang for your buck. Accommodating up to a 65" plasma, LCD or DLP TV, this piece features beautiful and stylish tempered glass shelves as well as a solid steel cable management panel, to keep all your cords and cables in order. Its aluminum profile, high glass black finish makes it a visual stunner and its price is even better at under $400!

  • Vitoria Flat Panel TV Stand by Z-Line Designs:

    With it's stylish black, glossy finish, the Vitoria Flat Panel TV Stand features an integrated mount, meaning that it accommodates most LCD and plasma TVs up to 50" wide.

  • Aspect Series Flat Panel TV Stand by BDI:

    BDI is at the forefront of functional modern design and its Aspect Series Flat Panel TV is quintessential modern style. Both stylish and completely functional, this piece was a 2005 "Product of the Year" winner by Electronics House Magazine. With its sleek shape and silver finish, Aspect fits most flat panel TVs up to 32" and features a handy swivel base and a shatterproof, tempered glass shelf. What it lacks in multimedia storage space, it makes up for in the style department. A little pricier, you can pick up the Aspect for under $575.

  • Marina Series Gloss White TV Stand by BDI:

    Finally, this beautiful piece is admittedly my guilty pleasure. Also from BDI, the Marina Series TV Stand features a beautiful gloss white finish and fits up to a 70" flat panel or rear projection TV. Its hidden wheels allow for easy maneuverability plus it features integrated wire management for a cleaner, less cluttered setup.
