The living room is the heartbeat of the home. It’s where people tend to gather, relax, and (most often) kick back to catch up on their favorite TV shows. If you live in a small space like a studio apartment, chances are your options are limited in terms of the type of TV stand or mounting options you’re able to go with. If the space in your home is already limited, the last thing you’ll want is another clunky, cumbersome piece of furniture — we get it!

That’s why we’ve rounded up the best small-space-friendly TV stands and media consoles you can buy right now. Be forewarned: These are not the oversized entertainment centers you grew up with as a kid. These picks are sleek, light, and functional. Did we forget to mention they’re also great to look at?
