Looking at getting a 60" Panasonic VT60 and it has been awhile since I bought a new TV (I am still running the Sony 50 XBR1 rear projection LCD). I

am looking for a place to buy a TV stand/shelf to put it on. When I bought the Sony they were making tv stands specifically for the tv you were buying but it appears that is no longer the case. Where is a good place to look (google give me a bunch of trash and websites with too many options)? I would prefer an angled/corner made stand to push it as far back in a corner of a room as the tv will allow. I am just looking for opinions on where you go to look.

It would also be nice to see what other people's set up look like.

Thanks for any help.

Another option may be to have a local furniture maker or cabinet builder build a custom corner stand to your specs. My boss found a local furniture repairman/refinisher/reupholsterer who also builds tables and had him build a custom TV credenza and matching coffee table and end table for under $800 - and it looks better than a lot of store-bought stuff.

I appreciate the input. We do have a solid wood furniture store where I live who get furniture made by the Amish. So that be an option. I am not in any real hurry but it is difficult finding stands made for large tv's recessed in corners. I think Best Buy had 300 options for 60" TV's but of those 75 -100 were the same stand with bigger dimensions. It is also hard to find angled stands for corner installations. Maybe I am the odd ball who wants to put the tv in the corner and would like stand angled the same way.

I like your set up randy. I never thought about doing what you do with a wall mount. Very creative and gave me more options to consider since most of the stands out there are fugly.
