Remember back to your first apartment. Your bulky TV was probably sitting on something from IKEA or a hand-me-down from the folks. The DVD player, stereo and video game console (depending on the era) were all connected with a mess of cables as function really took precedence over all else. Well, our apartments have matured and so has that media storage.
Here is a roundup of modern furniture designed for media storage without looking like that's it's sole purpose in life. With rich wood finishes and built in cable management, most are able to maintain a vibe more inline with Mad Men then your old frat house.
