We searched for the right media stand for 4 months before finding just what we wanted: an industrial-style steel credenza at a local thrift shop. During our search, we realized that many shops offer a surprisingly limited range of choices. For those who might be on a search themselves, we rounded up a selection of media stands from high to low, wall-mounted to rolling, open to closed...you get the idea. Jump below for our picks.
