Home Theater Furniture - Equipment Racks - TV Stands - Entertainment Centers

By

With all the gadgets we accumulate, one problem is how to put them in your room without making it look like a room full of junk. One idea is a rack, or cabinet, to store or display or those newly purchased home theater components. Also, an attractive stand, rack, or cabinet can give you a way to organize gadgets in a logical fashion and help to organize those "miles" of cable that end up collecting dust, dog and cat hair, and who knows what else. Check out some of my suggestions for home theater furniture and media storage that might be right for you.

Here is an interesting take on TV stands. The TPC2128 can hold TVs up 52-inches in size as long they don't weight more than 125 lbs and it can also accomodate up to four additional components. However, the special feature of the TPC2128 is its three setup options. The first option provides for the TV to placed directly on the stand. A second option allows the provided rear mounting frame and swivel to be fastened to the stand and TV fastened to the mount and swivel. A third option allows the rear mount and swivel to be removed from the stand and placed on the wall, allowing the TV to be wall mounted above the stand. Of course, Bello' provides a cable managment system to help further organize your setup. If you are looking for a TV stand both looks great and provides setup flexibility, check out the Bell'o TPC2128 Triple Play Stand With Swivel TV Mount.
