Good Questions: Media Stand Options for Large LCD?

Hopefully someone out there can help us! We have a pretty large LCD TV and need a media stand to place it on. (It has been sitting in the box for weeks now!) The Newkirk Media Stand is the perfect size height but only comes in West Elm's dark chocolate. Can anyone suggestion a similar piece that might be in a lighter tone? Ideally we need two space for components and preferably drawer/storage space. We're open to any suggestions...

Got a good question you'd like answered? Send your queries and a photo or two illustrating your question, and we'll see if the ATLA team or our readers can help you out.

We've have a few recommendations, a couple priced above and a couple priced more affordably. Our favourites are these Room&Board Copenhagen Media Consoles, available in maple, cherry, walnut and ebony. The other design we see would work well for a large display is the Grove Two-Door One-Drawer Media Cabinet.

Admittedly, these are pricier than the discounted Newkirk Media Stand setup from West Elm. So we're also recommending you consider something like the wide sized BESTA from IKEA or the CB2 Slick media console if you're looking for something a bit more modern-minimal.

An even more affordable media center solution can be had if you convert the ubiquitous IKEA lack shelving and add some sliding door and wheels. And we're sure many readers out there have their own recommendations...please share!
