Here at Lulu and Georgia, our thoughtfully-curated console cabinet collection is perfect for your home, beautifully blending form and function.
A media console brings versatile functionality to your space while maintaining a design balance that feels intentional and elevated. By choosing a TV console that reflects your aesthetic and styling it to the room, you can keep your living area feeling dynamic and refined while providing a TV stand with storage for lounge-style bliss. With a large variety of media and TV console table styles, it is helpful to understand how best to fit one into your space.
Not sure what style fits your aesthetic and home best when searching for a media console? Don't worry; we have got you covered. Check out a few tips below for inspiration when browsing, styling tips, and exploring our well-curated line of designs.
Consider Your Space
As with all furniture, an essential element in choosing a console media table is considering how it styles when in your space. Its dimensions should feel natural in the room, inspiring an open yet fully-furnished feel while allowing individual design elements to breathe. Their clean lines and lower profile make media consoles a versatile feature that can fold into most aesthetics for a dynamic balance.
In a larger area, a long, straight-lined modern media console like our Maeve Media Console can help ground the space–especially when mixed and matched with other items from the Maeve Collection for a sense of unity. In an apartment or smaller-space house, TV consoles with spacious drawers or cabinets can provide added storage, while a floating frame can offer storage underneath or be left clear to keep the room feeling open. Baskets can be a great way to add storage on or around your media console, plus they introduce a layer of organic artisanship.
In addition to considering the footprint and functionality, the console's style should help define and refine the look and feel of your space. Sleek designs can help enrich a sculptural aesthetic, while rattan paneling or wood grain finishes offer warmth and natural texture for effortless style points.
Setting the Tablescape
TV consoles come in a wide array of styles tailored to your look, from modern media console designs with industrial undertones to something with a timeless tone and an antiqued patina like our Zeta Media Console. Still, it is crucial to make sure the piece echoes other design notes for seamless décor. How you style the tablescape can be just as important as the design when choosing a media cabinet that feels tailor-made for your look.
One obvious addition to your TV console may be a television. While this can easily become an awkward element in a curated space, there are a lot of ways you can soften its presence with thoughtful design. A clean surface with no other accents can create a pleasing visual impact in a minimalist aesthetic. Otherwise, you will want to layer in décor to offset the visual weight a TV can create. With decorative objects of varying heights, you can create a more dynamic look to balance the grounding effect of the low-slung, clean-lined profile of a TV cabinet.
Another go-to option for styling a media console is creating a gallery art wall around it. With a few well-placed wall art pieces above a console, you can make a design statement with eye-catching appeal for everyday living and entertaining. By floating a TV above the console media table, you can leave the table open while taking advantage of the discreet storage and rear cutouts particular to media console designs for any accessories.
However you decide to style it, remember that your media console allows you the flexibility to define your design aesthetic. It allows you a chance to showcase your individuality with little touches of subtle design. Console cabinet designs provide a TV stand with storage space plus a spot to showcase other décor or greenery for flawless style. They enrich your home's aesthetic while providing a practical accent for everyday living.
