In many homes, a media chest is the focal point of the main living area. After all, if you orient your furniture around the TV, your media stand is front and center. Look for designs that not only accommodate your media collection, but also suit your interior decor. At AFA Stores, we have numerous designs to choose from.

Media units come in virtually every style, making it easy to find one that fits. For a traditional look, choose a wooden TV stand. Many have carved accents and decorative scrollwork to set a grand tone in your living room. Looking for a more modern feel? Choose a chest that features clean lines and a simple finish. You’ll also find transitional pieces, which sit somewhere between modern and traditional styles. Because these chests combine decorative and streamlined elements, they suit homes that embrace a mix of decor styles.
Most media chests come with some form of built-in storage for your media collection. Storage compartments come in a variety of styles, and most types serve specific purposes. If you have a DVD player or gaming console, look for units that have open compartments just below the top surface, with space for the cords to run out the back of the unit.
Some media stands also have hidden storage to conceal clutter, such as drawers or cabinets. Some models, particularly those that have a contemporary design, feature clear glass cabinet doors to showcase your collection while keeping it contained.
Media Chests for Other Rooms of the House
Many households have more than one television, so media units are available to suit different rooms in the house. The most common option is a combination media chest and dresser. These models feature open compartments for media devices on the top level, with clothing drawers below. Naturally, you can also use these styles for extra storage in a child’s playroom or family room.
Colors and Finishes
Media stands come in virtually any color you can imagine. The most popular are black, white, and neutral wood tones, as they complement a wide range of decor themes. Choose wood tones in warm, cool, and dark shades to fit the rest of your furniture. Black media chests are ideal for rooms with a variety of furniture finishes, as well as ultra-modern rooms, while white media furniture complements a pale-toned room. You can even find textured finishes, mirror accents, or metallic accents. For a glam look, choose a design with a high-shine finish. You can also add visual interest with funky or fancy hardware.
The right media furniture does double duty: it extends your decor style and it provides ample storage for your media accessories. With so many media units to choose from, it’s easy to match your signature style.
