Ask Vicente: TV Stands

Name: Adele 
City: NY
State: NY


What kind of tv stand/media center would you recommend? I don’t see any tv’s in any of your layouts, but I need something for my living room. The space is small (NYC apt) 48″ long x 108″ (9 feet) high.

Vicente Responds:

Years ago I started using art easels that I found in France for TV stands, they are architectural pleasing and have great flexibility. Restoration Hardware has a great knockoff of them. You can see how I have used the ones from France below, I have one in my loft too! Let us know what you decide on.

  • Lovely, but how are you concealing all of those pesky wires?

  • I was so inspired by your TV easels when I saw them a couple years ago. I thought it was so original, clever and functional. I did buy the one from Restoration Hardware for a client’s apt. in NY and it was PERFECT! Thank you

  • Vicente, this is a fabulous solution. ditto Ruth. now if they can just work on all of the cords and cables…

  • Hi Vicente: this is a fabulous idea since TV’s, although flat now are undeniably hideous and really don’t do much or anything for a room, but the easel at least makes it look more interesting!!

    Although, there has been a significant change in the types of Televisions that are available in the market, but TV stands are still preferred by people and a separate space is preserved for them in the house. However, before purchasing a TV stand, there are a few factors that should be considered, which would ensure that you are making an informed purchase. The first consideration is the size of your television. Many a times people purchase stands that does not well appropriately with the size. Therefore, before purchasing any kind of TV stand, it is important to measure the width of your television. ;

    Melissa —

    Just an fyi — the debates you and your husband are (were) having are “between my husband and ME”… not “I”.
