And, of course, you can just get the basic TV stand I originally thought of when I thought of a corner entertainment center. Though even some of these are better than I remember. I saw one that was taller than usual, and was labeled as being “bedroom-height”.
You can also find a full furniture piece that is not an armoire, but still a piece of case furniture with shelves, including one that goes above the television. The TV sits in the unit. The bottom part has shelves, drawers or cabinets for various components. One unit I saw that was specifically designed for the new flat panel TV style was unique because it required the TV to be connected to hang on the back wall of the unit.
With wood being a key component for these types of cabinets, you might want to look for a stain or varnish that brings out the natural tones of the wood. However, painted surfaces were not uncommon at that time, so you may want to consider a painted one. Typical colors from the time period include blues, greens, pinks, earth tones and red as an accent color on the interior.
