We have a television in the living room and one in the bedroom and we have a stand for both. The stand in the front room is black glass and one in the bedroom is clear as it looks less imposing than the black one so it gives the illusion that the room is a bit bigger. You can have a stand to mount the television on or you can mount it to the wall. Rather than cause damage, I found a stand the best possible solution.

I paid £58 for the display stand which comes with two shelves and it was bought from eBay. Many furniture stores sell the same design or you can buy it online through Amazon.
The clear glass stand contains two shelves and it has chrome finish legs. There are four legs and the glass is cut to a diagonal so that you can slot it into a corner. I would guess that the glass is cut to around 45 degrees on each side so there is still a big gap at the back but you can get it quite close to the corner of the room. The chrome finish legs and glass sections come in packs that you need to assemble yourself. The glass is clear and at the back there is a section that allows the wires to be passed through so you can fit your blu ray / dvd player or sky box underneath. The stand is designed for a television that is 22" - 42".
The stand was quite easy to assemble however the legs feel a little wobbly and they spin around, this is probably more down to the builder rather than poor quality. The stand looks good, it is an absolute magnet for dust and finger prints so I avoid touching it and I have to dust it regularly. We bought a lovely thick carpet for the bedroom recently and the downside is that the feet have left some massive marks on the carpet from the pressure. I have seen that you can buy some little caps to cover to the feet so that they do not dint the carpet too much, but it's a bit late now. I like the stand, I think it's good quality for the money and it looks very smart in the bedroom, it goes with the rest of the furniture and it gives a nice steady platform to mount the shiny tv on. I recommend this design, it is easy to build but it is quite heavy and cumbersome to move around.
I needed to buy a TV stand which would hold my son's many gaming consoles, together with our dvd player and 32 inch flat screen TV. I also wanted a stand with a cable tidy so that the many trailing wires would be hidden away. The dimensions of this stand are (H)45, (W)80, (D)49cm, and this was perfect to hold our TV, PS2, dvd player, and Wii. Unfortunately my son has now traded in his PS2 for an Xbox360, which is too big to fit on the stand.
I paid £97 for it - I chose the more expensive model to make sure it was good quality and would not wobble. I liked the smoked glass shelves, which go very nicely with the chrome legs and add to the stylish look of the stand.
When I picked it up from Argos it was flat packed, and although small it was surprisingly heavy. Opening it up, I found each glass shelf carefully wrapped in cardboard for protection. The instructions were very easy to follow, but I think that it definately needs two people to assemble this item, as the heavy glass shelves are difficult to hold straight as you screw in the cylindrical legs. With two people, it was an easy job to assemble the table. It is important to follow the instructions closely, as the chrome legs are each slightly different in length and design, although they look the same - and you can get to the end of the job only to realise that you have got them in the wrong order and there is nowhere to screw the protective chrome top cap.
The cable tidy consists of a rather flimsy plastic mould that screws into the back of the stand with 6 small screws. It is a bit fiddly to get all of the cables inside, and to make sure that they exit at the correct level for the correct shelf, but the advantages of having the cables tucked away make up for the fiddle. The other annoyance is that you have to unscrew the casing every time you want to move the games console.
After a year I have found that the stand lasts well. It is robust and does not wobble. The scratch resistant glass seems pretty indestructable. The cable tidy casing is less robust, and I have pushed too many wires into it, which makes the screw heads that hold it on pull through the plastic. This is the only design fault that I have seen, and it does not affect the look or the function of the table. My only other slight quibble is that the stand is advertised at 45cm high, but when it is assembled it is in fact 48cm high
