I love this as a T.V stand for it's simple, clean, classic lines. it fits with all types of decor whether tranditional or modern this will work with. It is also very functional it hides awaythings you do not want to be displayed yet it leaves enough open space for cable boxes or dvd players making remote control easy. it also has cut outs in the back for all the wiring (can't wait to go wireless). Did i mention it is fully assembled and made of hardwood makes it heavy but this is a piece you can pass on to future generations (assuming they have your good taste). it can be used for other things too.
