High & Low: 7 Stylish Media Consoles

A media console with well appointed storage can be the difference between having a disorganized pile of A/V components cluttering the room versus stylishly complementing that beautiful brand new flat screen TV of yours. With prices ranging from $50 to $3,000, there should be one out there to fit your budget and room.

CB2 Go-Cart
$169.00
The CB2 Go-Cart adds a splash of color and an industrial look perfect for your a young, modern loft-style setting. It's also available in carbon grey for those too meek to love themselves some chartreuse.

Target Modern Craftsman Media Console
$256.99
It's hard to imagine Target has hundreds of media consoles, priced from under $25 to $500. We particularly like this Craftsman media console, with its nice blend of traditional and modern tastes for that discriminating couple on a budget who can't agree on anything.
