The TV stand expresses the personality of your decoration. In black or white, in glass or wood, here are some tips to choose the ideal model for your living room.

A coordinated decor

The easiest way to choose the color of your TV stand is to match it to your other furniture. You already have a coffee table and black shelves? Then go for a black TV stand. This way, you'll get a decoration that will match and look better.

Black and white: the timeless ones

The white TV stand is a must-have. It can be used for all types of decoration, from the most sober to the most refined. For a Scandinavian-style living room, mix wood furniture with white finishes and pay attention to the small details, for example with elegant retro handles and slender legs placed at an angle.More contemporary, black TV furniture has the advantage of easily matching the design of televisions and other hifi equipment. Associated with a black sofa, it allows you to imagine a graphic "black and white" decoration in the heart of current trends.

Wood, a great classic always warm

It is no longer presented! The wooden TV stand lends itself to all decorations. In a light species, like pine, it brings a fresh touch to the atmosphere of the room. For a more original effect, it is chosen in a natural, waxed or faded color. With a raw or faded finish, wood furniture is perfect for creating a vintage decoration. You can then mix the species to obtain different textures.

Pure and contemporary glass

Perfect for small spaces, the glass TV stand offers the same practicality as other models, but its transparency lightens the decoration. Its main drawback is that it lets the cables and other connections of your hifi system show through. To remedy this, choose a glass model with an opaque frame. This way, the unsightly wires will be perfectly camouflaged! Transparent furniture is perfect to give a contemporary atmosphere to a room. You can match them with other glass elements, such as shelves, or with raw wood to play on contrasts.

Lacquered trend

Lacquered TV stands combine the shine of glass with the warmth of wood. Perfectly suited to contemporary, uncluttered interiors, it has the advantage of being available in a multitude of colors and finishes. For a successful installation, dare to use the entire wall surface for a color-block effect. On the floor, your TV stand houses the DVD player and other accessories. Around the screen, you can place other shelves, or storage blocks, to organize your DVD collection and arrange small knickknacks.

Industrial TV stand

Do you have a factory-style interior or want to compose an industrial-style decoration? Choose your furniture in this sense. Many models of TV furniture from Maison du Monde meet these aesthetic expectations. As an alternative, install a pallet TV stand. The mix of wood and metal also works very well. The main thing is to stick to the characteristics of this type of furniture. In other words, opt for a rather massive piece, with a weathered finish and a worn look. Still on the finishing side, it may surprise you, but industrial furniture goes very well with colors. Yellow, orange, turquoise, pink, purple ... all come to dress a wooden or metal furniture aged. If you prefer typical "industrial" shades, think of khaki, rust, gray and all shades of gray. Use sparingly or all over the front of the furniture. To emphasize the industrial side, dare to add a little graphic touch, a few letters in capitals for example or numbers printed in black on the furniture. Effect guaranteed!
