Whether we like to admit it or not, television is a huge part of many of our daily routines.
And while the way we watch TV has changed dramatically changed over the past few years, whether it’s through standard cable packages or on our laptops and mobile devices, the best way to enjoy a prestige HBO show or the latest episode of "The Bachelorette" or a Very Important Sporting Event—is on a big screen.
To accommodate said screen and all its various accoutrements, you’ll need a media console or stand that complements the rest of your interior design scheme. To assist you with the search, we’ve picked out a selection of eight affordable pieces in a variety of styles—all for less than $400.
